The horsepower is a parameter that most of car fans pay the greatest attention to. In this case, it is the Citroen that has by 13 horsepower more in relation to the Honda FR-V, which makes this car slightly faster. Because of more horsepower the Citroen C8 should also provide somewhat better efficiency in specific speeds.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Honda speeds up relatively slower compared with the Citroen C8 2.0 i 16V 138HP manual. The
difference at the level of
1 percent is
quite little and it should
not be strongly taken by you into
as important when selecting the better one of compared
Trunk capacity with seats down
The maximum velocity possible to be reached by the Citroen is greater in comparison to of the Honda FR-V by 3 kilometers/hour, which allows the Citroen C8 to travel quicker large distance of highway. The difference at the level of 2 percent is small and will not be a very noticable in everyday driving.
The width of the vehicle influences on passanger's inner room and stability of driving. The Citroen is 35 millimeters wider than the Honda FR-V. It is often clearly felt by those sitting in front, who have more room for their elbows.
In terms of capacity of a fuel tank it is the Citroen C8 which can hold 34 percent more fuel in relation to the Honda FR-V 1.7 i 16V 125HP manual. The average fuel container capacity in the van class, from which the Citroen C8 comes from, amounts to 70 l, whereas in van segment (represented by the Honda FR-V) it is 70 liters.
The wheelbase of a vehicle is the distance between its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase notably affects the driving because of more desirable vehicle's weight distribution. Citroen C8 has 158 mm longer wheelbase distance in comparison to Honda FR-V. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the balance and steering. Thus, the mass of Citroen C8 should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
The Citroen has 329 cc greater engine displacement than the Honda FR-V 1.7 i 16V 125HP manual. As the difference is little, the Citroen C8 should accelerate slightly faster, if other paramerters are equal.
Maximum load capacity
The Citroen C8 2.0 i 16V 138HP manual is 10 percent longer in relation to the Honda. Long cars more of passenger space and also provide bigger trunk. Although the Citroen C8 occurs to be better option for families or persons who appreciate soft, smooth long-distance rides, the Honda FR-V 1.7 i 16V 125HP manual may appeal to women because it will not cause troubles with parking and will be easier for turning in narrow streets.
The higher a car is, the better is the comfort of getting in to it and greater capacity of carrying big amount of stuff to it. The difference between these two cars that amounts to 141 millimeters in favor of the Citroen C8 is insignificant and should not be really noticeable.
