Volvo XC90 (2015): 35 facts and highlights

1. height

1.78m
Volvo XC70 (2015): 917mm

2. 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.
2639l
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 3429l

3. 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.

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. 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.
15l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3l/100 km

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.
236Nm
Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG (2014): 759Nm

7. width

1.94m
Suzuki Jimny (2014): 1.6m

8. 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.
8
Tesla Model X 75D (2016): 12

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).
2.86m
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 3.3m

10. longer drivetrain warranty (years)

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
4yrs
Hyundai Santa Fe Limited (2014): 10yrs

11. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
80l
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 117l

12. 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.

13. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
249l
Volvo XC60 (2015): 1909l

14. 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.
3.2l
Cadillac Escalade (2015): 6.2l

15. 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.
12m
Suzuki Jimny (2014): 9.8m

16. 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.
9.4l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3.4l/100 km

17. 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.
218mm
Toyota RAV4 LE (2014): 106mm

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. 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.
1.01m
Ford Flex SE (2014): 1.03m

20. longer basic warranty (years)

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
4yrs
Hyundai Santa Fe Limited (2014): 5yrs

21. more horsepower

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

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.
0.36Cd
Tesla Model X 75D (2016): 0.24Cd

23. 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.

24. 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.

25. 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.
