The horsepower is a characteristic that most of car fans attach the biggest attention to. In this case, it is the Volvo XC70 II Estate, which has by 154 more horsepower when compared to the Ford, which makes this vehicle distinctly better in terms of top speed. Having more horsepower the Volvo XC70 II Estate should as well provide distinctly more flexiblility in specific gears.
Because of 83 percent more torque, the engine of the Volvo XC70 II Estate 3.0 T6 304HP automatic 4x4 distinctly better transmits power to the wheels than the Ford Kuga II 1.6 EcoBoost 150HP manual. This, in turn, have positive implications for a car's acceleration.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Ford Kuga II 1.6 EcoBoost 150HP manual speeds up relatively slower in relation to the Volvo XC70 II Estate. The
difference at the level of
2.3 s is
is slightly to the Volvo XC70 II Estate advantage, however, it should
not be substantially taken by you into
consideration when choosing
one of compared
The Volvo XC70 II features 119 liters
in comparison to the Ford Kuga II 1.6 EcoBoost 150HP manual.
Such a difference is relevant
so it will distinctly matters in terms
of the comfort of the
car’s usage. At the same time that
the Volvo XC70 II has
boot size than the average in the
same class. Larger
luggage compartment will be useful during family
traveling and also during
daily car’s usage.
The top speed possible to be reached by the Volvo XC70 II Estate 3.0 T6 304HP automatic 4x4 is greater compared with the Ford Kuga II 1.6 EcoBoost 150HP manual by 8, which allows the Volvo XC70 II to overcome faster large distance of highway. The difference at the level of 8 % is small and will be negligible in everyday driving.
Distance between two sides of a vehicle directly influences on interior space for travelers as well as stability while driving. The Volvo XC70 II Estate is widther by 2 % in comparison to the Ford Kuga II 1.6 EcoBoost 150HP manual and is not really important. The average for the „compact SUV” segment amounts to 1,797 mm and is by 4 percent larger than the same attribute of the Volvo.
The wheelbase of a vehicle means the distance separating its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving due to more desirable vehicle's weight distribution. Volvo XC70 II has 128 mm longer wheelbase distance when compared to Ford Kuga II. Wheelbase dimensions are crucial to the stability and steering. Thus, the mass of Volvo XC70 II Estate should be better distributed and driving should be smoother and safer.
Trunk length with seats up
Ground clearance is a vital factor in several relevant parameters of a vehicle. It is the most important in SUV vehicles though all vehicles appreciate the higher suspension. The Volvo XC70 II has 11 % higher clearance than the Ford Kuga II. Apart from effective mobility in rough terrain, the Volvo will also be easier pushed urban obstacles such as large kerbstones, for example.
The Volvo has 1,357 cubic centimeters bigger engine size in comparison to the Ford Kuga II. The difference is relatively substantia. As a result the Volvo XC70 II Estate should accelerate faster and be able to reach higher maximum speed. On the other hand bigger cubic capacity usually means worst fuel economy.
Maximum load capacity
The Volvo XC70 II Estate 3.0 T6 304HP automatic 4x4 is 312 millimeters longer than the Ford. The length of the vehicle plays a role in respect of driving comfort and room in the boot. The Volvo XC70 II Estate probably will be offering to it's passangers more room for legs. At the same time the Volvo XC70 II Estate will be better driven but the Ford Kuga II will be a bit easier to park because of shorter length of the body.
An engine in the shape of a V is a
upgraded version of a
which as far as we are concerned is
wiser to choose one. Engine of V configuration
inside a vehicle the Volvo XC70 II
gives more torque at lower RPM ranges due to
the power stroke coming from 2 sides of the crankshaft. This type of
motor can contain more
cylinders without significant growth in its
Better engine work and pleasant sound is
to driving fans certainly to a V engine’s advantage.
Trunk length with seats down
Automatic gearbox which is in the Volvo XC70 II Estate 3.0 T6 304HP automatic 4x4 in spite of having a few drawback gives much more better comfort of driving. After a long time spent at the steering wheel you probably would be less exhausted. Moreover automatic puts less strain on the engine because of the factory settings of shifts in specific revs range.
