157.5mm shorter.
1.94m
Volvo XC70 (2015): 917mm
1.78m

2. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
88l
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 117l
80l

3. greater cargo volume (seats down)

2962l
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 3429l
2639l

4. Has a rear-view camera

6. width

94.5mm narrower.
2.03m
Suzuki Jimny (2014): 1.6m
1.94m

7. Has a turbocharged engine

A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.

8. better fuel economy (city)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3l/100 km
15l/100 km

9. more airbags

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six as some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags and side curtain airbags.

10. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
637Nm
Lamborghini Urus (2019): 850Nm
236Nm

11. longer drivetrain warranty (years)

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
5yrs
Mitsubishi Pajero (2017): 10yrs
4yrs

12. longer wheelbase

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
3.11m
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 3.3m
2.86m

13. Has Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets and computers.

14. larger engine size

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
3.5l
Cadillac Escalade (2015): 6.2l

15. Has in-car system

An in-car system (eg. Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) gives you extra functionality, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.

16. better fuel economy (highway)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
9.8l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3.4l/100 km
9.4l/100 km

17. Has front-wheel drive

Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.

18. lower ground clearance

The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.

19. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
375hp
Faraday Future FF 91: 1050hp
240hp

20. more headroom (front)

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
1.07m
GMC Yukon SLE (2015): 1.09m
975mm

21. more headroom (rear)

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.

22. better fuel economy (combined)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
11.76l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3.3l/100 km
12.2l/100 km

23. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.
