2 reasons for Fiat Palio II Hatchback 1.2 i 67KM manual in comparison to MG ZR 1.4 105HP

Reasons for

Number of doors

5 > 3
There’s no doubts that the five-door Fiat is more convenient and if you regularly travel with more than one people then it’s the format to go for. The strongest point of a five-door car is that it’s not only easier for passengers to climb into the rear seats but it’s also easier to place luggage and cargo into the vehicle when the rear seats are folded down. However, three-door cars like the MG generally look much cooler and for young drivers who don’t often have more than one passengers in the car the MG ZR may be more appropriate.


1,445 > 1,401 mm
The higher a vehicle is, the the more convenient is a boarding it and greater possibility of loading massive amount of stuff to it. The difference that amounts to 3 percent to the advantage of the Fiat Palio II is little and does not matter much.
