General info

1.turn radius

11.5m

11.9m

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.Has front-wheel drive
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0T (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.drivetrain warranty (years)

4yrs

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.
4.Has fully independent suspension
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0T (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)

4yrs

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
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0T (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

1.68m

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)

1549l

1589l

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

660l

674l

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

1.89m

1.81m

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

2.76m

2.6m

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)

993mm

993mm

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

Speed

1.coefficient of drag

0.35Cd

0.37Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

14.9l/100 km

15.7l/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

370Nm

281Nm

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

66l

64l

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

302hp

200hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0T (2014)
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.
6.fuel economy (highway)

11.3l/100 km

10.9l/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.

Features

1.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0T (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.
2.Has smart key as standard
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0T (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
3.USB ports

1

0

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
4.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0T (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.
