The horsepower is a parameter that majority of us pay the biggest attention to. In this case, it is the Citroen DS5 which has by 18 horsepower more in relation to the Mazda, which makes this vehicle slightly faster. Because of more horsepower the Citroen DS5 should as well provide slightly more efficiency in specific speeds.
The Citroen DS5 uses 0.4 l less in the mixed cycle when compared to the Mazda. The difference at the level of 0.4 l is not realy noticeable. However in the long run it can generate a real savings.
Due to 63 percent more torque, the engine of the Citroen DS5 distinctly better transmits power to the wheels than the Mazda 6 III Estate 2.0 SKYACTIV-G 145HP manual. This, in turn, produces better a car's acceleration.
The Citroen consumes of 11 % oil less in city traffic in comparison to the Mazda 6 III Estate 2.0 SKYACTIV-G 145HP manual. The Citroen DS5, which is classified in large family cars class, consumes 4.4 l per 100 km less than the medium level in its segment. The average fuel consumption in the “mid-size” segment is 10.6 l per 100 km.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Mazda 6 III Estate 2.0 SKYACTIV-G 145HP manual speeds up relatively slower compared to the Citroen DS5. The
difference in the amount of
8 percent is
quite low and for that
reason it should
not be vitally taken by you into
as important when selecting the better one of compared
The top speed possible to be reached by the Citroen DS5 is higher in comparison to this of the Mazda 6 III Estate which allows to travel the same distance on the highway faster. The difference at the level of 9 kilometers/hour is not big and is imperceptible in daily use.
Maximal torque RPM
A wider range as well as a lower number of rotations at which the maximum torque is reached has an impact on an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. However, in order to eliminate engines drawbacks like e.g. turbo lug, it is worth to see a torque performance graph.
Width of a vehicle directly influences on room in the cabin and also stability while driving. The width of the Citroen is larger only by 1 % than the Mazda 6 III and is not really relevant. The average for the „middle” class equals to approximately 1,764 mm and is by 107 mm larger than the width of the Citroen.
The higher a car is, the the more convenient is a getting in to it and greater capacity of loading big amount of thinks to it. The difference of 2 percent to the advantage of the Citroen DS5 2.0 HDi 163HP manual is insignificant and does not matter much.
