2. larger engine size

2.5l

2l

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.

3. lower ground clearance

200mm

231mm

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.

6. higher maximum torque

235Nm

258Nm

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.
