Maximal torque RPM
The RMP at which the highest torque is produced indicates how fast an engine reaches its full performance with increase in revolutions. The lower revolutions or the wider range at which the torque has the highest value, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration is felt faster.
The winner of these two vehicles in the category of fuel tank capacity is Infiniti that is able to carry by 7 % more diesel in comparison to the Citroen C5 III.
Infiniti Q50 2.2d 170HP manual has 47 mm longer wheelbase when compared to the Citroen C5 III Crosstourer 2.0 HDi 163HP manual.
