The horsepower is a feature that most of drivers pay the biggest attention to. As far as the two compared cars are concerned, it is the BMW 5-Series F10 Touring F11, which has by 125 % more horsepower in comparison to the Volvo V60, which makes this car distinctly faster. Because of more horsepower the BMW 5-Series F10 Touring F11 should also give considerably better flexiblility in specific gears.
Maximum torque of the BMW 5-Series F10 Touring F11 is 1 newton meter bigger than the Volvo V60. For this reason, the BMW will accelerate somewhat better and be better to overtake other cars. Appropriate use of the flexibility of the engine will also cause that the BMW 5-Series F10 Touring F11 535i 306HP manual will burn up less fuel per 100 kilometers.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The BMW 5-Series F10 speeds up to 100k\h
compared to the Volvo V60 Estate Facelifting 2.0 D3 136HP manual. A noticable difference in
acceleration in favor of the BMW will allow him to overtake much
faster and avoid other obstacles.
The top speed of the BMW 5-Series F10 is greater in comparison to this of the Volvo V60 which allows to cover the same distance on the highway in shorter period of time. The difference at the level of 45 km/h is small and is not realy noticable in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed where the maximum torque is reached determines how fast an engine achieves its full efficiency with increase in rotational speed. The lower rmp or the wider range at which the torque is the highest, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration should be felt faster.
The wheelbase of a car means the length between its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving due to more appropriate car's weight distribution. BMW 5-Series F10 Touring F11 has 199 millimeters longer wheelbase distance in relation to Volvo V60. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the balance and steering. Thus, the mass of BMW 5-Series F10 Touring F11 should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
The BMW 5-Series F10 Touring F11 has 50 % larger engine size when compared to the Volvo V60. The difference is relatively notable. As a result the BMW 5-Series F10 Touring F11 535i 306HP manual should accelerate faster and be able to achieve higher maximum speed. On the other hand bigger cubic capacity usually equals worst fuel consumption.
The BMW is 6 % longer in relation to the Volvo V60 Estate Facelifting 2.0 D3 136HP manual. The length of the vehicle is important when it comes to travelling comfort and room in the boot. The BMW 5-Series F10 Touring F11 probably will be offering to it's passangers more room for legs. At the same time the BMW 5-Series F10 will be better driven but the Volvo V60 will be a little easier to park due to shorter length of the body.
The higher a vehicle is, the the more convenient is a boarding it and greater possibility of carrying big amount of stuff to it. The difference between these two cars of 3 mm in favor of the BMW 5-Series F10 Touring F11 535i 306HP manual is insignificant and does not matter much.
