The horsepower is a characteristic that most of us pay the greatest attention to. In this comparison, it is the Subaru that has by 22 horsepower more than the Ford Ecosport II 1.0 Ecoboost 125HP manual, which makes this vehicle slightly better in terms of high speed. Because of more horsepower the Subaru XV will also give somewhat better flexiblility in specific gears.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
If a fast driving is what you are really in to, the Subaru XV 2.0D 147HP manual 4x4 fits you better because it’s
acceleration to 100 km/h is
better in comparison to
the Ford Ecosport II 1.0 Ecoboost 125HP manual.
The maximum velocity of the Subaru XV 2.0D 147HP manual 4x4 is higher in comparison to this of the Ford Ecosport II 1.0 Ecoboost 125HP manual which allows to cover the same distance on the highway in shorter period of time. The difference at the level of 18 km/h is not big and is imperceptible in everyday driving.
Subaru XV has 114 millimeters longer wheelbase in relation to the Ford Ecosport II. A longer wheelbase provides more stable and comfortable ride, especially when driving fast. It also gives more storage space. However, vehicles with a longer wheelbase are not as maneuverable as those with a shorter wheelbase.
The Subaru is 5 % longer when compared to the Ford Ecosport II. Long vehicles more of passenger space and usually have bigger trunk. Although the Subaru XV seems to be better choice for families or persons who appreciate convenient driving that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Ford Ecosport II may be more appropriate to city drivers as it will not cause troubles with parking and will be more maneuverable.
Number of gears
The Subaru XV has only one additional
gear in relation to the
Ford. Usually the
extra gear is used as an overdrive so that the previous
gears can be narrower to
allow better acceleration in the
lower gears. One more gear as well helps
fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
A Boxer engine installed inside the
Subaru XV 2.0D 147HP manual 4x4 occurs to be noticeably
better because it has smaller dimensions and generates less vibrations compared to engine with cylinders arranged in a straight line.
What is more it is worth knowing
configuration results in that a
vehicle has the benefit of a lower center of
gravity what affects the better grip. The advantage of engine which cylinders are arranged in a line, like the one
put inside the Ford, is that because of its simple construction it can be cheaper compared to
other types of engines.
The Subaru has 999 cubic centimeters greater engine size in relation to the Ford. The difference is relatively large. For this reason the Subaru XV should accelerate faster and be able to achieve higher maximum speed. On the other hand larger engine capacity usually affects worst fuel efficiency.
