The horsepower is a parameter that majority of drivers pay the biggest attention to. In this case, it is the Volvo XC60 which has by 9 percent horsepower more in comparison to the Renault, which makes this car somewhat quicker. With more horsepower the Volvo XC60 SUV should as well give a bit more efficiency in specific speeds.
The fuel economy is considerably to Volvo's advantage. This automobile uses 25 percent fewer oil in the combined cycle than the Renault Koleos SUV 2.5 16v 170HP manual. Bear in mind that average fuel consumption in the mixed cycle for the compact SUV class, in which the Volvo is classified, is 7.5 l while the Volvo XC60 SUV 2.4 D5 185HP manual 4x4 needs by 1 percent less fuel than the average.
Because of 77 percent more torque, the engine of the Volvo XC60 SUV 2.4 D5 185HP manual 4x4 distinctly better transmits power to the wheels than the Renault Koleos SUV 2.5 16v 170HP manual. This, in turn, have positive implications for acceleration.
The boot of the Volvo XC60 SUV is only 46 liters bigger than the Renault Koleos. However, the difference is not significant and it would be fair to say that both vehicles have more of less the same trunk size.
The top speed possible to be reached by the Volvo XC60 SUV is greater in comparison to this of the Renault Koleos SUV 2.5 16v 170HP manual which allows to drive the same distance on the highway in shorter period of time. The difference at the level of 5 percent is small and is imperceptible in daily driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The RMP where the highest torque is reached shows us how fast an engine achieves its full performance with increase in rmp. The lower revolutions or the longer range in which the torque has the highest value, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration is felt faster.
The width of the vehicle influences on passanger's inner room and stability of driving. The Volvo is 2 % wider in relation to the Renault Koleos SUV 2.5 16v 170HP manual. It is clearly felt by driver and passenger in front, who have more space for their elbows.
The winner of these two vehicles in the category of fuel tank size is Volvo XC60 that is able to hold by 6 percent more fuel in relation to the Renault.
Volvo XC60 has 92 mm longer wheelbase than the Renault Koleos SUV. A longer wheelbase gives more stable and comfortable ride, especially when driving fast. It also gives more storage space. But, vehicles with a longer wheelbase are not as maneuverable as those with a shorter wheelbase.
Trunk length with seats up
Ground clearance is a critical factor in many important characteristics of a car. Ride height is very important in off-road cars still all cars appreciate the higher suspension. The Volvo XC60 has 24 millimeters higher clearance in comparison to the Renault Koleos SUV. Apart from easier mobility in rough terrain, the Volvo XC60 SUV will also be easier to overcome city obstacles like large curbs, for example.
The Volvo XC60 is 107 millimeters longer in comparison to the Renault Koleos. The length of the vehicle plays a role in terms of travelling comfort and room in the trunk. The Volvo XC60 very likely will be offering to it's passangers more room for legs. At the same time the Volvo XC60 SUV will be better driven but the Renault Koleos will be a bit easier for parking due to shorter length of the body.
The higher a car is, the better is the comfort of getting in to it and greater possibility of putting big amount of luggage to it. The difference of 19 mm to the advantage of the Volvo is small and does not matter much.
