The horsepower of the Seat Leon III is by 15 horsepowers bigger when compared to the Fiat Bravo II Hatchback 5d 1.4 i 16V MPI 90HP manual. As the difference is small it should not affect the vehicles performance to a large extent.
The fuel economy is distinctly to Seat Leon III's advantage. This car consumes 1.6 l fewer gasoline in the combined cycle than the Fiat Bravo II Hatchback 5d 1.4 i 16V MPI 90HP manual. Keep in mind that average fuel consumption in the combined cycle for the small family cars segment, in which the Seat Leon III is classified, equals to 6.8 l while the Seat Leon III Hatchback consumes by 31 % less amount of fuel than the average.
Thanks to 49 newton meters more torque, the engine of the Seat Leon III Hatchback distinctly better transmits power to the wheels than the Fiat Bravo II. This, in turn, have relevant effects on acceleration.
The Seat Leon III Hatchback burns up of 2.2 l gasoline less in the urban cycle compared to the Fiat Bravo II Hatchback 5d 1.4 i 16V MPI 90HP manual. The Seat Leon III Hatchback 1.2 TSI 105HP manual, as a representative of C segment, burns up of 2.8 l of fuel for every 100 km fewer than the medium level in its class. The average fuel consumption in the “compact” segment is 8.7 l per 100 km.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A small difference that amounts to 2.5 s shows that the Fiat is the worst car of these two presented. In the „lower middle segment, being represented by the Fiat Bravo II Hatchback 5d, the average acceleration to 100km/h amounts to 11.3 s and is by 1.2 s higher than this of Fiat vehicle.
The maximum speed of the Seat Leon III Hatchback is higher in comparison to this of the Fiat Bravo II Hatchback 5d 1.4 i 16V MPI 90HP manual which allows to cover the same distance on the highway in shorter period of time. The difference that amounts to 12 kilometers/hour is little and is imperceptible in everyday use.
Maximal torque RPM
A big difference in rotations per minute at which the maximum torque is delivered clearly indicates that a vehicle with an engine that doesn’t need taking it up at high revs is this of the Seat Leon III. The engine of the Fiat Bravo II reaches its full efficiency at 4,500 revolutions/minute which is by 69 % lower compared with the Seat Leon III.
The wheelbase of a car is the length separating its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving because of better vehicle's weight distribution. Seat Leon III Hatchback has 2 % longer wheelbase distance in comparison to Fiat Bravo II Hatchback 5d. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the balance and steering. Hence, the mass of Seat Leon III Hatchback 1.2 TSI 105HP manual should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
Gross trailer weight
Model release date
Production of the older car started 7 years prior to its rival hence it is reasonable to suppose that this car features not so modern technologies applied.
