The BMW X3 E83 is equipped with diesel which delivers by 28 percent more horsepower over the Citroen C-Crosser 2.2 HDI 160HP manual 4x4, giving the vehicle a more sporty character. It should be googd option to those who want to feel thrill of drive a sports car.
Maximum torque of the BMW X3 E83 3.0 d 204HP manual 4x4 is 8 % bigger than the Citroen C-Crosser 2.2 HDI 160HP manual 4x4. As a result, the BMW X3 E83 will accelerate somewhat faster and be better for overtaking other vehicles. Appropriate use of the flexibility of the engine may also make that the BMW will consume fever fuel for every 100 km.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Citroen C-Crosser 2.2 HDI 160HP manual 4x4 can reach the
speed of 100Km/h relatively slower in relation to the BMW X3 E83 3.0 d 204HP manual 4x4. The
difference in the amount of
20 percent is
quite little and it should
not be substantially taken by you into
as important for choosing
one of presented
The maximum velocity possible to be reached by the BMW is higher in comparison to this of the Citroen which allows to cover the same distance on the highway faster. The difference that amounts to 10 kilometers per hour is small and is not realy noticable in daily use.
Maximal torque RPM
A greater range as well as a lower number of rotations at which the maximum torque is reached determines an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. Still, to get a whole view on an engine efficiency, it is worth to analyze a torque graph.
Width of a vehicle directly affects interior space for travelers as well as stability during driving. The width of the BMW X3 E83 is larger by 2 % in comparison to the Citroen C-Crosser 2.2 HDI 160HP manual 4x4 and is not really worth considering. The medium for the „small off-road 4x4” segment equals to around 1,797 millimeters and is by 54 mm smaller than the width of the BMW X3 E83.
The wheelbase of a car is the distance separating its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase notably affects the driving due to more desirable car's weight distribution. BMW X3 E83 3.0 d 204HP manual 4x4 has 4 % longer wheelbase distance in relation to Citroen C-Crosser. Wheelbase dimensions are crucial to the stability and steering. Thus, the mass of BMW X3 E83 should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
The BMW X3 E83 3.0 d 204HP manual 4x4 has 812 cc bigger engine displacement than the Citroen. The difference is relatively large. For this reason the BMW X3 E83 should accelerate faster and be able to reach higher maximum speed. On the other hand larger engine capacity means worst fuel efficiency.
