Maximal torque RPM
A wider range as well as a lower value of rotations at which the maximum torque is delivered has an impact on an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. Still, in order to eliminate engines drawbacks like e.g. turbo lug, it is always good to check a torque performance graph.
The width of the car influences on passanger's inner room and driving stability. The Renault Latitude 2.0 16v E85 140HP manual is 3 percent wider in relation to the BMW 3-Series E90 Coupe E92 Facelifting. It is clearly felt by those sitting in front, who have more space for their elbows.

Renault Latitude has 3 mm longer wheelbase distance in comparison to BMW 3-Series E90 Coupe E92 Facelifting 320i 170HP automatic. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the balance and steering. Thus, the mass of Renault Latitude should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
The Renault Latitude has 5 cubic centimeters greater engine displacement in relation to the BMW 3-Series E90. Because the difference is little, the Renault Latitude should accelerate only slightly faster, of course if other paramerters are equal.

However, for young drivers that appreciate more attractive styling of the vehicle we suggest choosing the two-door BMW 3-Series E90 Coupe E92 Facelifting 320i 170HP automatic.
Model release date
Production of the older car began 7 years prior to its contender thus man may suspect that this vehicle has not so modern solutions .
The higher a car is, the the more convenient is a boarding it and greater capacity of putting big amount of thinks to it. The difference of 90 mm to the advantage of the Renault is not big and does not matter much.
