General info

1.Has front-wheel drive
MINI Cooper Countryman (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.
2.Has fully independent suspension
MINI Cooper Countryman (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.
3.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
MINI Cooper Countryman (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

1.56m

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)

1170l

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

350l

674l

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

1.99m

1.81m

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

2.6m

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.length

4.1m

4.43m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

7.4l/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

160Nm

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

47l

64l

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

122hp

200hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
MINI Cooper Countryman (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)

5.2l/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

2.USB ports

1

0

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
3.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
MINI Cooper Countryman (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.
