Subaru XV Crosstrek 2.0i Premium (2014) vs Volvo XC70 (2015): 31 facts in comparison

1. height

698mm shorter.
1.61m
Volvo XC70 (2015): 917mm
917mm

2. 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.

3. greater cargo volume (seats down)

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.

Toyota Sienna SE (2014): 4247l
2041l

4. Has a rear-view camera

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.

5. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.

Ford Super Duty F-250 XL (2015): 132l
70l

6. 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.
12.3l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3l/100 km
9.8l/100 km

7. Has a turbocharged engine

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.

9. width

96mm narrower.
1.78m
Peugeot 208 Allure (2014): 1m
1.88m

10. 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.
10.6m
Scion iQ2 (2014): 4.2m
11.5m

11. 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).
2.63m
Toyota Tundra SR5 (2014): 3.7m
2.81m

12. 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.
197Nm
Lamborghini Urus (2019): 850Nm
258Nm

13. 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.

Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3.4l/100 km
7.6l/100 km

17. more headroom (rear)

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
958mm
Ford F-150 SVT Raptor (2014): 1.94m

18. more headroom (front)

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.

19. Has front-wheel drive

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.

240hp

21. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

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.
