Subaru Outback Wagon 2.5i (2014) vs Volvo XC60 (2015): 35 facts in comparison

1. larger engine size

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.
2.5l
SRT Viper (2014): 8.4l
2l

2. better fuel economy (combined)

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.
7.6l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km
8.5l/100 km

3. lower ground clearance

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.

Renault Scenic 1.5 dCi 110 (2014): 59mm
231mm

4. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
65l
Ford Super Duty F-250 XL (2015): 132l
70l

5. Has four-wheel drive

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.

6. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
235Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm
258Nm

7. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
170hp

240hp

8. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.
198km/h
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 447km/h
225km/h

9. faster acceleration (0-100)

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
9.9s
Tesla Roadster: 1.9s
6.2s

10. better fuel economy (city)

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.
10.1l/100 km
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013): 0l/100 km
9.8l/100 km

11. better fuel economy (highway)

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.
6.1l/100 km
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013): 0l/100 km
7.6l/100 km

12. more cylinders

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.

16. height

38mm shorter.
1.6m
Volvo XC70 (2015): 917mm
1.64m

17. longer wheelbase

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).
2.75m
Toyota Tundra SR5 (2014): 3.7m
2.77m

18. more valves

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.

Ford F-150 SVT Raptor (2014): 1.94m
966mm

23. smaller turn radius

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.
11.2m
Scion iQ2 (2014): 4.2m
11.7m

24. more airbags
