General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
Volkswagen Touareg V6 (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.turn radius

11.8m

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.
3.drivetrain warranty (years)

4yrs

10yrs

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 ML350 (2014)
Volkswagen Touareg V6 (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 rear-wheel drive
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
Volkswagen Touareg V6 (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.

Dimensions

1.height

1.8m

1.73m

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)

2274l

1812l

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

1082l

909l

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

2.14m

1.94m

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

2.92m

2.89m

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)

988mm

1.01m

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)

16.6l/100 km

16.6l/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 lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
2.maximum torque

370Nm

359Nm

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

93l

100l

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

302hp

280hp

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

12.8l/100 km

12.3l/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.
6.engine size

3.5l

3.6l

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.Has in-car system
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
Volkswagen Touareg V6 (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.
2.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
Volkswagen Touareg V6 (2014)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
3.Has smart key as standard
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
Volkswagen Touareg V6 (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.
4.USB ports

1

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
5.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
Volkswagen Touareg V6 (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.
