Kathmandu-hybrid: how wide is the handlebar?

Hi, can someone tell me exactly how wide is the handlebar of the CUBE Kathmandu Hybrid Pro 625 2021.
I read this in the specs:

CUBE Comfort Trail Bar, 700mm But I don't know if it refers to the width.

I would like to compare the width of the handlebar with the Cannondale Tesoro Neo X 2 2021 as many people tell me that it is wider and has the most mtb ride, so less comfortable in the city.
In the Cannondale spec. I read this:

Cannondale handlebar 3, 6061 double-butted, 20mm rise, 9° back, 720mm

Could it be that Cannondale has a more sporty driving style and therefore a little less suitable for city streets?

The handlebar width specified in both cases is actual width.

The difference between 700 and 720 mm means nothing. Wider handlebars give better steering. My e-MTB has 780 mm handlebars while my commuter e-bike is just 660 mm in handlebar width. I ride both easily and was never thinking of the bar width as of an important parameter.

Of course, the Cannondale riding position will be forward and the Cube will offer more relaxed position. Look at the relative height of the handlebars and of the saddle in both pictures. It is no issue though as you might rise the Cannondale handlebars for some 70 mm with a simple stem riser that is easy to buy, install, and which is very cheap.
