In this comparison, it is the Alfa Romeo 166 I 2.0 i 16V T.Spark 155HP manual which has by 17 horsepower more than the Renault Safrane II, which makes this vehicle somewhat quicker. Thanks to more horsepower the Alfa Romeo 166 I should also provide a bit more efficiency in specific gears.
The Alfa Romeo 166 I has 5 newton meters more torque in comparison to the Renault Safrane II 2.0 16V 138HP manual. Even though the majority of people do not attach importance the maximum torque when buying a vehicle, it shows the best how a vehicle acclerates. As far as these two vehicles are concerned the difference is little so the difference will not be much noticeable.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Renault speeds up relatively slower in
comparison to the Alfa Romeo 166 I. The
difference at the level of
0.9 s is
is slightly to the Alfa Romeo 166 I advantage, however, it should
not be strongly taken into
consideration for buying one of compared

Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed at which the maximum torque is delivered indicates how fast an engine achieves its full output with increase in revolutions. The lower revolutions or the wider range in which the torque is the highest, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration is felt earlier.
Distance between two sides of a car affects room in the cabin as well as stability on road. The width of the Alfa Romeo 166 I 2.0 i 16V T.Spark 155HP manual is larger by 25 mm compared with the Renault Safrane II and is not really important. The average for the „upper middle” class amounts to 1,826 mm and is by 1 % bigger than the width of the Alfa Romeo 166 I 2.0 i 16V T.Spark 155HP manual.
The Alfa Romeo has by 22 cc bigger cubic capacity when compared to the Renault Safrane II 2.0 16V 138HP manual. This play a little role when it comes to accleration, as both values are quite simmilar.
Model release date
The difference in debut day between presented cars is only 2 years, however, new technologies for automotive industry are appearing at a blistering pace what may cause that the Alfa Romeo may feature more modern solutions thanks to which everyday usage of it may be more comfortable.
