The Volkswagen Golf III Cabrio 1.6 i 100HP manual has by 20 horsepowers more horsepower in comparison to Fiat Albea I 1.2 i 16V 80HP manual. The Volkswagen Golf III Cabrio 1.6 i 100HP manual will be distinctly more dynamically speed up because of grater horsepower. Also overtaking other cars while moving along the road should be a piece of cake for the Volkswagen Golf III Cabrio equipped with stronger engine.
Maximum torque of the Volkswagen is 28 Nm higher than the Fiat Albea I. As a result, the Volkswagen will accelerate somewhat swifter and be better for overtaking other cars. Appropriate use of the flexibility of the engine will also make that the Volkswagen Golf III will consume less fuel per 100 kilometers.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Fiat Albea I 1.2 i 16V 80HP manual is relatively slower compared to the Volkswagen Golf III Cabrio. The
difference at the level of
12 % is
not really significant and it should
not be vitally taken into
account for selecting the better one of compared
The top speed possible to be reached by the Volkswagen is greater compared with the Fiat Albea I by 12, which allows the Volkswagen to overcome faster long stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 20 km/h is little and will be negligible in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed at which the maximum torque is reached determines how fast an engine achieves its best output with increase in revolutions. The lower rmp or the wider range at which the torque has the highest value, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration is felt earlier.
In this category it is the Volkswagen Golf III Cabrio 1.6 i 100HP manual that can contain 20 % more fuel compared with the Fiat Albea I. The average fuel container size in the small family cars segment, which is represented by the Volkswagen, amounts to 52 l, whereas in C class (represented by the Fiat Albea I 1.2 i 16V 80HP manual) it is 52 liters.
The wheelbase of a vehicle means the length separating its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving because of more desirable car's weight distribution. Volkswagen Golf III Cabrio 1.6 i 100HP manual has 32 mm longer wheelbase distance than Fiat Albea I 1.2 i 16V 80HP manual. Wheelbase dimensions are crucial to the stability and steering. Thus, the mass of Volkswagen Golf III Cabrio 1.6 i 100HP manual should be better distributed and driving should be smoother and safer.
The Volkswagen Golf III Cabrio has 353 cc larger engine displacement in relation to the Fiat Albea I 1.2 i 16V 80HP manual. The difference is notable. Consequently the Volkswagen should accelerate faster and be able to reach higher maximum speed. On the other hand larger cubic capacity results in worst fuel consumption.
