The Dacia Duster consumes 0.8 l less in the combined cycle when compared to the Suzuki Grand Vitara II SUV 1.6 i 16V 106HP manual 4x4. The difference in the amount of 10 % is not very appreciable. At the same time within some time it would give a considerable reduction of costs.
Maximum torque of the Dacia Duster SUV is 1 newton meter higher than the Suzuki Grand Vitara II SUV 1.6 i 16V 106HP manual 4x4. For this reason, the Dacia will accelerate somewhat swifter and be better to overtake other vehicles. Appropriate use of the flexibility of the engine may also cause that the Dacia Duster SUV will use on average less fuel for every 100 km.
The Dacia burns up 6 percent less fuel in the city compared with the Suzuki Grand Vitara II SUV 1.6 i 16V 106HP manual 4x4. The difference at the level of 6 percent will be quite big in using vehicle. Additionally, during long period of time it may generate huge savings. Moreover you shoule take int consideration that medium results of the average fuel consumption might be considerably lifted if you move dynamically. The difference in fuel consumption of the vehicles compared by you is so tremendous that you should consider to choose vehicles with engines of similar power and similar dimensions. Only then will the comparision be adequate.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A little difference that amounts to 2.9 s shows that the Suzuki Grand Vitara II SUV is the worst car of these two presented. In the „small off-road 4x4 segment, being represented by the Suzuki Grand Vitara II, the average acceleration amounts to 10.9 s and is by 3.5 s higher than this of Suzuki vehicle.

The difference at the level of 3 percent is little and will not be a very noticable in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
A greater range as well as a lower number of revolutions at which the highest torque is delivered determines an engine’s effectiveness and dynamism. However, in order to get a whole view on an engine efficiency, it is always recommended to analyze a torque performance graph.
Distance between two sides of a car directly affects room in the cabin and also stability during driving. The Dacia is widther only by 12 millimeters in comparison to the Suzuki Grand Vitara II SUV and is not really important. The average for the „small off-road 4x4” segment is 1,797 millimeters and is by 1 % larger than the same feature of the Dacia Duster SUV.
The Dacia Duster SUV has 43 millimeters longer wheelbase in relation to Suzuki. Consequently the Dacia Duster is more safe and has a better stability. Besides, longer wheelbase has impact on convenient and more comfortable driving.
The Dacia has 10 cubic centimeters bigger engine capacity compared to the Suzuki Grand Vitara II. Because the difference is not big, the Dacia should accelerate slightly faster, of course assuming that other paramerters are the same.
