The horsepower is a parameter that most of drivers take into consideration at first when buying a car. In this comparison it is the Mercedes GLA which has by 71 more horsepower when compared to the Chevrolet Trax 1.4 140HP manual. Consequently the Mercedes will reach higher velocity. Due to more horsepower the Mercedes will also give seemingly more flexiblility in specific speeds.
Because of 152 Nm greater torque, the engine of the Mercedes GLA distinctly better transmits power to the wheels than the Chevrolet. This, in turn, produces better a car's acceleration.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Mercedes accelerates to 100k\h
faster in relation to the Chevrolet Trax 1.4 140HP manual. A noticable difference in
acceleration in favor of the Mercedes will allow him to overtake much
quicker and avoid other obstacles.
The top speed possible to be reached by the Mercedes GLA is greater than the Chevrolet by 44 kilometers per hour, which allows the Mercedes GLA 250 211HP automatic 4x4 to cover faster large stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 24 percent is little and will be insignificant in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
A greater range and a lower value of revolutions at which the maximum torque is delivered affects an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. Still, in order to have a full perspective on a car’s engine performance, it is good to analyze a torque performance graph.
Distance between two sides of a car affects room in the cabin and also stability during driving. The Mercedes GLA is widther only by 29 mm in relation to the Chevrolet and is not really important. The average for the „small off-road 4x4” class is 1,797 millimeters and is by 7 mm smaller than the same feature of the Mercedes GLA.
The wheelbase of a car equals the distance separating its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving because of more appropriate vehicle's weight distribution. Mercedes GLA has 6 percent longer wheelbase distance in relation to Chevrolet Trax. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the stability and steering. Hence, the mass of Mercedes should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
The engine size of the Mercedes GLA 250 211HP automatic 4x4 is by 627 cubic centimeters bigger in comparison to the Chevrolet. In a consequence the Chevrolet Trax will consume less fuel, but, the engine of the Mercedes GLA will be of better quality, running more smoothly and less prone to breaking down.
Gross trailer weight
The Mercedes is 4 percent longer in comparison to the Chevrolet Trax. The length of the car is significant when it comes to driving comfort and space in the trunk. The Mercedes preasumbly will be offering to it's passangers more room for legs. Aditionally the Mercedes GLA 250 211HP automatic 4x4 will be better driven but the Chevrolet Trax will be a bit easier to park due to shorter length of the body.
Automatic transmission in the Mercedes GLA 250 211HP automatic 4x4 despite having a few disadvantages offers much more better comfort of driving. After a long ride especially in the city you probably would be less exhausted. Also automatic puts less strain on the engine because of the factory settings of changing gears in specific revs range.
