Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed where the maximum torque is reached tells us how fast an engine achieves its best output with increase in rmp. 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 is felt faster.
The width of the car influences directly on passanger's inner room as well as stability of driving. The Mazda is 2 % wider in comparison to the Citroen. It is clearly perceptible by those sitting in front, who have more room for their elbows.
