Maximal torque RPM
A greater range as well as a lower number of rotations at which the highest torque is delivered determines an engine’s performance. However, in order to get a whole view on an engine efficiency, it is good to analyze a torque performance graph.
Width of a vehicle influences on interior space for travelers and also stability while driving. The width of the Citroen C-Elysee II is larger only by 47 millimeters than the Seat Toledo IV 1.2 75HP manual and is not really relevant.
