Maximal torque RPM
A wider range as well as a lower value of rotations at which the highest torque is delivered affects an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. However, to get a whole view on an engine efficiency, it is always good to check a torque performance graph.
Width of a vehicle influences on room in the cabin as well as stability while driving. The width of the Dacia Duster SUV is larger only by 6 mm compared with the Hyundai and is not really important. The average for the „compact SUV” class amounts to approximately 1,797 millimeters and is by 25 mm smaller than the width of the Dacia Duster SUV.
The Dacia Duster has 41 mm longer wheelbase when compared to Hyundai ix35 SUV 1.6 GDI 135HP manual. Consequently the Dacia Duster SUV 1.6 16V 105HP manual is safer and has a better stability. Moreover, longer wheelbase has impact on convenient and more comfortable riding.
Ground clearance is the gap between the vehicle body and the ground. From these two cars, it is the Dacia Duster SUV which has 42 mm higher ride height in relation to the Hyundai ix35 SUV. This is why the Dacia Duster SUV 1.6 16V 105HP manual will deal better when driving over imperfect roads and high curbs in the city. However, the higher ride height means a higher center of gravity, which can negatively influence the handling of the Dacia Duster SUV.
The Dacia Duster has 5 cubic centimeters greater cubic capacity than the Hyundai ix35 SUV 1.6 GDI 135HP manual. Because the difference is small, the Dacia should accelerate only slightly better, if other paramerters are does not play a role.
