I found such a webapp. Its in German though. It can be found here: ADAC New Car Recommendations. The ADAC is the German club of car owners. It works exactly like I would have liked it: I can select the elements that I need and place some preferences (like "Long Range Quality", "Transport capability") in a range from "I don't care" to "Super important". ...

As commenters have stated, there are any number of apps that could do what you require to a greater or lesser degree, including Runkeeper itself. After trying several, the one I have settled on is Cycledroid. As the name suggests, it is aimed at cyclists. However, it exports the information that you require in GPX or KML format.
