The BMW 3-Series E90 Coupe E92 has by 26 % more horsepower compared to Fiat Croma II. The BMW 3-Series E90 will be distinctly more dynamically accelerate thanks to bigger horsepower. Also overtaking cars or obstacles while moving along the road should be a piece of cake for a car equipped with more powerful motor.
The fuel economy is distinctly to BMW 3-Series E90 Coupe E92 320d 177HP manual's advantage. This car burns 2.7 l fewer oil in the combined cycle in relation to the Fiat. Keep in mind that average fuel consumption in the combined cycle for the middle segment, in which the BMW 3-Series E90 Coupe E92 320d 177HP manual is classified, is 7.7 l while the BMW needs by 39 percent less amount of fuel than the average.
When you step on the gas and you start speeding up quickly, that’s torque you’re feeling. And you will feel it better driving the BMW 3-Series E90 Coupe E92 because it has 178 Nm more torque than the Fiat. Compared cars differ so much that only riding the BMW you will experience a pleasurable sensations of getting pressed back in the seat as the car accelerate.
The BMW burns up 3.5 l less fuel in urban cycle than the Fiat Croma II. The difference at the level of 3.5 l is very big in everyday using car. Additionally, within many months it may give gigantic cost savings. Also bear in mind that medium results of the average fuel efficiency may be considerably raised if you move dynamically. The difference in fuel economy of the vehicles compared by you is so big that you should consider to choose cars with similar engines. Only then will the comparision have a sense.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A small difference at the level of 2.4 s suggests that the Fiat Croma II is slightly beaten here. In the „large family cars” class, to which the Fiat Croma II 1.8 16v 140HP manual is assigned, the average acceleration amounts to 9.9 s and is by 0.3 s faster than acceleration of Fiat’s vehicle.
The maximum velocity possible to be reached by the BMW is greater in comparison to this of the Fiat Croma II by 13, which allows the BMW 3-Series E90 to overcome quicker long stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 26 km/h is small and will be insignificant in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The RMP where the maximum torque is delivered determines how fast an engine achieves its best efficiency with increase in revolutions. The lower rmp or the wider range at which the torque is the greatest, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration is felt faster.
Width of a car affects the amount of space for passengers and also stability on road. The width of the BMW 3-Series E90 is larger by 5 millimeters than the Fiat Croma II and is not really important. The average for the „D” class equals to approximately 1,764 mm and is by 20 millimeters larger than the width of the BMW.
BMW 3-Series E90 Coupe E92 has 62 mm longer wheelbase in relation to the Fiat Croma II. A longer wheelbase provides more stable and comfortable ride, especially at higher speeds. It also provides more storage space. However, cars with a longer wheelbase are not as maneuverable as those with a shorter length between its axles.
Number of gears
The BMW 3-Series E90 Coupe E92 320d 177HP manual has a one more
speed in relation to the
Fiat. Usually the
extra gear is used as an overdrive thanks to which the previous
gears can be narrower in order to
give increased acceleration in the
lower gears. One more speed also helps to lower
fuel consumption and CO2 output.
The BMW 3-Series E90 Coupe E92 has by 198 cubic centimeters bigger engine displacement when compared to the Fiat Croma II. This play a little role on vehicle's performance, as both figures does not vary much.
