General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Ford Kuga Zetec (2014)
Kia Sportage 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.Has fully independent suspension
Ford Kuga Zetec (2014)
Kia Sportage 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.
3.Has front-wheel drive
Ford Kuga Zetec (2014)
Kia Sportage 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.CO2 emissions

154g/km

139g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
5.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Ford Kuga Zetec (2014)
Kia Sportage 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.
6.Has a diesel engine
Ford Kuga Zetec (2014)
Kia Sportage LX (2014)
Improvements in diesel engine technology have lead to vast gains in fuel efficiency over petrol (gasoline) cars (and even hybrids), as well as having lower carbon emissions. It is also safer as it doesn't explode as petrol can.

Dimensions

1.height

1.69m

1.63m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
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.
A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
4.width

1.84m

1.85m

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

1.58t

1.54t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
6.length

4.52m

4.44m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

8.3l/100 km

6.3l/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

148hp

114hp

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

5.6l/100 km

4.8l/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.
6.fuel economy (combined)

6.6l/100 km

5.3l/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 Kuga Zetec (2014)
Kia Sportage 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.
2.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Ford Kuga Zetec (2014)
Kia Sportage 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.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
4.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Ford Kuga Zetec (2014)
Kia Sportage LX (2014)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
