Volvo XC60 (2015): 38 facts and highlights

1. 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.

2. height

1.64m
Volvo XC70 (2015): 917mm

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. more airbags

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six as some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags and side curtain airbags.

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.
258Nm
Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG (2014): 759Nm

7. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
70l
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 117l

8. 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.

Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3l/100 km

9. 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).
2.77m
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 3.3m

10. width

1.9m
Suzuki Jimny (2014): 1.6m

11. Has in-car system

An in-car system (eg. Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) gives you extra functionality, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.

12. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
1909l
Volvo XC60 (2015): 1909l

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.
2l
Cadillac Escalade (2015): 6.2l

14. 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.
11.7m
Suzuki Jimny (2014): 9.8m

16. 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.
966mm
Ford Flex SE (2014): 1.03m

17. 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.
965mm
GMC Yukon SLE (2015): 1.09m

18. Has height-adjustable seat belts

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.

19. 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.

20. 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.
7.6l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3.4l/100 km

21. 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.
8.5l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3.3l/100 km

22. lower coefficient of drag

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel economy.
0.35Cd
Tesla Model X 75D (2016): 0.24Cd

23. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
240hp
BMW X6 M (2014): 555hp

24. 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.
231mm
Toyota RAV4 LE (2014): 106mm

25. 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.
