General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Ford Explorer (2017)
Honda CR-V LX (2014)
Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.
2.turn radius

11.86m

11.3m

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
3.Has front-wheel drive
Ford Explorer (2017)
Honda CR-V LX (2014)
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.
4.Has fully independent suspension
Ford Explorer (2017)
Honda CR-V LX (2014)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
5.Has rear-wheel drive
Ford Explorer (2017)
Honda CR-V LX (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
6.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Ford Explorer (2017)
Honda CR-V LX (2014)
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.

Dimensions

1.height

1.78m

1.64m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.cargo volume

2313.5l

1053l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
3.wheelbase

2.87m

2.62m

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).
4.width

2m

1.82m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
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.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

13.84l/100 km

10.2l/100 km

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.
Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.
4.horsepower

290hp

185hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.fuel economy (highway)

9.8l/100 km

7.6l/100 km

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.
6.fuel economy (combined)

11.76l/100 km

9l/100 km

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

Features

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
2.Has a rear-view camera
Ford Explorer (2017)
Honda CR-V LX (2014)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
3.Has in-car system
Ford Explorer (2017)
Honda CR-V LX (2014)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
4.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Ford Explorer (2017)
Honda CR-V LX (2014)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
5.Has smart key as standard
Ford Explorer (2017)
Honda CR-V LX (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
