General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
Hyundai Santa Fe GLS (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.
2.Has front-wheel drive
Hyundai Santa Fe GLS (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.
3.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Hyundai Santa Fe GLS (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.
4.Has a diesel engine
Hyundai Santa Fe GLS (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

1.7m

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.
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

1.89m

1.85m

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

2.8m

2.64m

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)

15.7l/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

290hp

114hp

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

11.3l/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)

13.5l/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

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
Hyundai Santa Fe GLS (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.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
4.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Hyundai Santa Fe GLS (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.
