The horsepower is a parameter that most of us take into consideration at first when buying a car. In this case it is the Opel Mokka 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC 140HP manual which has by 35 more horsepower when compared to the Dacia. Consequently the Opel Mokka is able to reach higher speed. Due to more horsepower the Opel Mokka 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC 140HP manual will as well provide seemingly more flexiblility in specific gears.
The Opel Mokka burns up 21 % fewer fuel in the combined cycle when compared to the Dacia. The difference in the amount of 21 % will be very appreciable in day-to-day usage of the vehicle. In the long run it will result in a substantial cost reduction.
Because of 37 % greater torque, the engine of the Opel Mokka 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC 140HP manual does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Dacia Duster SUV. This, in turn, produces better acceleration.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Opel can reach the speed of 100Km/h in 9.9 s, which is 14 % less in comparison to the Dacia Duster SUV. However the difference is not as much big to be taken into consideration when buying a car.
The maximum velocity of the Opel is higher as compared to this of the Dacia which allows to cover the same distance on the highway faster. The difference that amounts to 17 percent is small and is imperceptible in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
A big difference in revolutions per minute at which the maximum torque is generated clearly shows that a car which does not require to be revved high is this of the Opel Mokka. The engine of the Dacia Duster SUV reaches its full efficiency at 3,750 revolutions/minute which is by 51 percent lower than the Opel Mokka.
Number of gears
The Opel Mokka has only one more
speed in relation to the
Dacia Duster. Most often the
additional speed is used as an overdrive thanks to which the previous
gears can be narrower in order to
give increased acceleration in the
lower speeds. One more speed also helps
fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
Model release date
Given that the Dacia Duster's production started only 2 years earlier than the Opel Mokka, the distance in technology applied in both cars is not really big, however, the Opel might feature slightly more modern solutions applied in it.
The higher a vehicle is, the the more convenient is a getting in to it and greater capacity of putting big amount of stuff to it. The difference between these two cars at the level of 2 % in favor of the Opel is not big and does not matter much.
