General info

1.turn radius

11.2m

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.
2.drivetrain warranty (years)

10yrs

5yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.
3.Has front-wheel drive
Hyundai Santa Fe GLS (2014)
Mazda CX-5 Sport (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
Hyundai Santa Fe GLS (2014)
Mazda CX-5 Sport (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.basic warranty (years)

5yrs

3yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
6.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Hyundai Santa Fe GLS (2014)
Mazda CX-5 Sport (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

1.7m

1.71m

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

2265l

1835l

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.
3.cargo volume

382l

966l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
4.width

1.89m

1.84m

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

2.8m

2.7m

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).
6.maximum headroom (front)

1.01m

1.02m

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

7.7l/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.
2.maximum torque

342Nm

150Nm

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.
3.fuel tank capacity

71l

56l

A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.
4.horsepower

290hp

155hp

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

11.3l/100 km

11.1l/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.engine size

3.3l

2l

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.

Features

1.number of airbags

7

4

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
