Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed at which the maximum torque is reached determines how fast an engine reaches its full output with increase in rmp. The lower rmp or the wider range in which the torque is the highest, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration should be felt earlier.
Distance between two sides of a vehicle directly influences on interior space for travelers and also stability during driving. The width of the Mercedes is larger only by 66 millimeters in comparison to the BMW and is not really important. The medium for the „upper middle” class equals to 1,826 millimeters and is by 9 mm bigger than the same feature of the Mercedes.
Mercedes E-Class W211 has 3 % longer wheelbase in relation to the BMW 5-Series E34 M5 Sedan 3.5 316HP manual. A longer wheelbase gives more stable and comfortable ride, especially when driving fast.

gear compared to the
BMW 5-Series E34 M5 Sedan 3.5 316HP manual. Most often the

A V engine is a

engine with cylinders arranged in a straight
which in our opinion} is
wiser to choose one. Engine of V characteristic
installed in a the Mercedes
produces more torque at lower RPM ranges due to
the power stroke coming from 2 sides of the crankshaft. This type of
motor can house high numbers of
cylinders without a need of much extending its dimensions. A
Better engine work and pleasant sound is
