Maximal torque RPM
A wider range as well as a lower number of rotations at which the maximum torque is reached affects an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. However, to have a full perspective on a car’s engine performance, it is recommended to see a torque graph.
Number of doors
A 5-door car generally is a hatchback and because of that the Ford Escort I, which whole rear including the window lifts up and the rear seats folds flat making more room, has the edge over the four-door Fiat 125p with the hinges for the boot that opens under the rear window.
Model release date
Given that the Fiat was launched only 1 year prior to the Ford Escort I, the distance in technology used in both vehicles is not really big, however, the Ford Escort I might feature slightly more advanced solutions used in it.
