General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Ford Flex (2018)
Volvo XC70 (2015)
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

12.4m

11.5m

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 Flex (2018)
Volvo XC70 (2015)
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 Flex (2018)
Volvo XC70 (2015)
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 a petrol (gasoline) engine
Ford Flex (2018)
Volvo XC70 (2015)
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

1.73m

917mm

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

566.3l

943l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things. With some vehicles you can put the rear seats down in order to gain more space for cargo.
4.width

1.93m

1.88m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.wheelbase

2.99m

2.81m

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).
More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

14.7l/100 km

9.8l/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

287hp

240hp

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

10.23l/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)

12.38l/100 km

8.5l/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

1.Has a rear-view camera
Ford Flex (2018)
Volvo XC70 (2015)
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.
2.Has in-car system
Ford Flex (2018)
Volvo XC70 (2015)
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.
3.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Ford Flex (2018)
Volvo XC70 (2015)
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.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
5.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Ford Flex (2018)
Volvo XC70 (2015)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
