General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
MINI Cooper Countryman (2014)
Volvo XC60 (2015)
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
MINI Cooper Countryman (2014)
Volvo XC60 (2015)
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
MINI Cooper Countryman (2014)
Volvo XC60 (2015)
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

140g/km

139g/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
MINI Cooper Countryman (2014)
Volvo XC60 (2015)
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

1.64m

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

350l

1909l

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

1.99m

1.9m

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

2.6m

2.77m

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).
5.length

4.1m

4.64m

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

Speed

1.top speed

190km/h

225km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

10.5s

6.2s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

7.4l/100 km

9.8l/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

258Nm

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

70l

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

122hp

240hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
MINI Cooper Countryman (2014)
Volvo XC60 (2015)
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 (combined)

6l/100 km

8.5l/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.

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 a rear-view camera
MINI Cooper Countryman (2014)
Volvo XC60 (2015)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
3.Has in-car system
MINI Cooper Countryman (2014)
Volvo XC60 (2015)
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.
4.Has height-adjustable seat belts
MINI Cooper Countryman (2014)
Volvo XC60 (2015)
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.
5.Has regenerative braking
MINI Cooper Countryman (2014)
Volvo XC60 (2015)
Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.
6.USB ports

1

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
