General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Kia Sportage LX (2014)
Suzuki Grand Vitara 3-door Navigator (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 front-wheel drive
Kia Sportage LX (2014)
Suzuki Grand Vitara 3-door Navigator (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 fully independent suspension
Kia Sportage LX (2014)
Suzuki Grand Vitara 3-door Navigator (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.
4.CO2 emissions

139g/km

209g/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
Kia Sportage LX (2014)
Suzuki Grand Vitara 3-door Navigator (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
Kia Sportage LX (2014)
Suzuki Grand Vitara 3-door Navigator (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

1.63m

1.7m

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)

1353l

964l

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

564l

184l

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

1.85m

1.81m

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

2.64m

2.44m

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.ground clearance

172mm

200mm

The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.

Engine

1.maximum torque

255Nm

225Nm

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.
2.fuel tank capacity

58l

55l

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

114hp

164hp

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

5.3l/100 km

9.6l/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 higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
5.engine size

1.7l

2.4l

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

6

6

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 in-car system
Kia Sportage LX (2014)
Suzuki Grand Vitara 3-door Navigator (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.
3.USB ports

1

0

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
4.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Kia Sportage LX (2014)
Suzuki Grand Vitara 3-door Navigator (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.
