The fuel economy is distinctly to Fiat 500L's advantage. This vehicle uses 31 percent fewer oil in the mixed cycle in relation to the Kia Carens IV. Bear in mind that average fuel consumption in the mixed cycle for the minivan class, in which the Fiat 500L Living is classified, is 6.5 l while the Fiat 500L Living 1.6 MultiJet II 120HP manual consumes by 26 % less amount of fuel than the average.
The Fiat 500L Living 1.6 MultiJet II 120HP manual has 152 Nm more torque in
comparison to the Kia Carens IV. The difference at such level is relevant, so that the Fiat will accelerate significantly faster.
The Fiat 500L consumes 3.5 l less oil while driving inside city when compared to the Kia Carens IV 1.6 GDI 135HP manual. The difference in the amount of 3.5 l is quite appreciable in everyday use of the ride. But, in a long term it will give you significant savings. Keep in mind that fuel consumption may change depending on your driving style
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A little difference in the amount of 5 % indicates that the Kia Carens IV is somewhat beaten in this confrontation. In the „minivan” segment, to which the Kia Carens IV 1.6 GDI 135HP manual is assigned, the medium acceleration is 11.7 s and is by 3 percent slower than acceleration of Kia’s car.
The top velocity possible to be reached by the Fiat is higher in comparison to this of the Kia which allows to drive the same distance on the highway faster. The difference that amounts to 2 % is small and is imperceptible in daily driving.
Maximal torque RPM
This huge difference stems from the fact that both compared vehicles have different engines. The Fiat 500L has the diesel engine whereas the Kia Carens IV is equipped with the petrol engine. Taking into account different types of engines, comparing this characteristic has no sense.
The Fiat 500L has by 1 % larger engine capacity in comparison to the Kia Carens IV. This play a little role in terms of acceleration, as both values does not differ much.
The higher a car is, the the more convenient is a boarding it and greater possibility of carrying big amount of stuff to it. The difference between these two cars that amounts to 1 percent to the advantage of the Fiat 500L is little and does not matter much.
