The horsepower is a characteristic that most of us pay the biggest attention to. In this comparison, it is the Citroen C4 I that has by 10 horsepower more than the Lancia Delta III Hatchback 1.4 MultiAir 16V 140HP manual, which makes this car somewhat quicker. With more horsepower the Citroen C4 I Grand Picasso should also provide slightly more efficiency in specific gears.
The Citroen C4 I Grand Picasso 1.6 THP 150HP automatic has 10 newton meters more torque than the Lancia. Even though most of drivers do not take into consideration the maximum torque when buying a vehicle, it describes the best how fast a vehicle is speeding up. As far as these two vehicles are concerned the difference is little and for that reason you probably will not feel the difference.
With more boot size the Citroen C4 I will have much more room for transporting things and be more usefull one compared with the Lancia. If the size of the boot is what does appeal to you, the Citroen will be better to buy as it is about 75 percent larger than the boot of the Lancia Delta III.
The top speed possible to be reached by the Citroen C4 I Grand Picasso is greater than this of the Lancia Delta III Hatchback 1.4 MultiAir 16V 140HP manual by 1 km/h, which allows the Citroen C4 I Grand Picasso to overcome faster long stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 1 km/h is small and will be negligible in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed where the highest torque is delivered tells us how fast an engine achieves its best output with growth in rotational speed. The lower rmp or the wider range in which the torque has the highest value, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration should be felt earlier.
Width of a vehicle directly affects interior space for travelers as well as stability while driving. The Citroen C4 I is widther by 28 mm in relation to the Lancia and is not really worth considering. The average for the „small family cars” segment is 1,703 millimeters and is by 7 % larger than the width of the Citroen C4 I.
The Lancia Delta III Hatchback 1.4 MultiAir 16V 140HP manual loses with the Citroen C4 I Grand Picasso in the aspect of fuel tank capacity. The Citroen C4 I is able to carry by 4 percent more fuel in relation to its rival.
The wheelbase of a vehicle equals the length between its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase notably affects the driving because of more appropriate vehicle's weight distribution. Citroen C4 I has 31 millimeters longer wheelbase distance when compared to Lancia Delta III Hatchback 1.4 MultiAir 16V 140HP manual. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the stability and steering. Hence, the mass of Citroen C4 I should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
The Citroen C4 I Grand Picasso 1.6 THP 150HP automatic has 232 cc greater cubic capacity in relation to the Lancia. Because the difference is little, the Citroen should accelerate only slightly faster, of course assuming that other paramerters are the same.
The Citroen is 73 mm longer when compared to the Lancia Delta III Hatchback. Long cars have roomy cabin and also provide more storage space. Although the Citroen C4 I Grand Picasso 1.6 THP 150HP automatic seems to be better pick for families or persons who value soft, smooth long-distance driving, the Lancia Delta III Hatchback 1.4 MultiAir 16V 140HP manual may be more appropriate to city drivers because it will not make problems with parking and will be easier for turning in narrow streets.
If you are a tall man or you carry in the trunk stuffs of large dimensions, the Citroen, which is by 11 % higher than the Lancia, is better pick for you. However, these two vehicles do not differ much when it comes to its height and it should not be much noticeable.
A manual transmission with which the Lancia is equipped is more simpler construction and is cheaper in use but also it is less comfortable as the driver has to operate clutch and shift speeds and it can be lot of inconvenience in a jammed city traffic where drivers have lots of frequent stop and go situations. An automatic gearbox put in the Citroen C4 I with 6 – speeds transmission is in our opinion better one.
