The horsepower of the Mitsubishi is by 20 percent bigger than the Ford Fiesta IV. As the difference is small this should not affect the car performance largely.
Maximum torque of the Mitsubishi Carisma Hatchback is 25 Nm bigger than the Ford. For this reason, the Mitsubishi will accelerate slightly better and be better to overtake other cars. Appropriate use of the flexibility of the engine may also make that the Mitsubishi Carisma Hatchback 1.6 90HP manual will use less fuel for every 100 km.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Mitsubishi Carisma Hatchback 1.6 90HP manual can reach the speed of 100Km/h in 12 seconds, which is 0.7 s better result when compared to the Ford Fiesta IV 1.25 i 16V 75HP manual. However the difference is not as much significant to be taken into account when buying a automobile.
The Mitsubishi Carisma Hatchback features 182 l
in relation to the Ford Fiesta IV 1.25 i 16V 75HP manual.
Such a difference is quite significant
therefore it will distinctly matters in terms
of the comfort of the
vehicle’s usage. At the same time that
the Mitsubishi Carisma Hatchback 1.6 90HP manual has 6 %
trunk size than the average in its class. Larger
boot will be useful during family
journeys as well as while
daily car’s usage.
The top speed possible to be reached by the Mitsubishi Carisma Hatchback is higher as compared to this of the Ford Fiesta IV which allows to travel the same distance on the highway in shorter period of time. The difference at the level of 6 percent is little and is not realy noticable in daily driving.
Maximal torque RPM
A greater range and a lower value of rotations at which the highest torque is reached has an impact on an engine’s effectiveness and dynamism. However, to get a whole view on an engine efficiency, it is always recommended to check a torque graph.
Width of a car influences on interior space for travelers and also stability on road. The Mitsubishi Carisma Hatchback is widther by 5 percent compared with the Ford Fiesta IV and is not really worth considering. The medium for the „D” class is approximately 1,764 millimeters and is by 51 mm bigger than the same attribute of the Mitsubishi Carisma Hatchback 1.6 90HP manual.
In terms of capacity of a fuel tank it is the Mitsubishi which can carry 51 % more fuel compared with the Ford Fiesta IV 1.25 i 16V 75HP manual. The medium fuel container size in the middle class, which is represented by the Mitsubishi Carisma, amounts to 63 l, whereas in subcompact class (represented by the Ford Fiesta IV) it amounts to 44 liters.
Mitsubishi has 5 % longer wheelbase in comparison to the Ford Fiesta IV 1.25 i 16V 75HP manual. A longer wheelbase gives more stable and comfortable ride, especially at higher speeds. It also provides more storage space. But, cars with a longer wheelbase will not be as maneuverable as those with a shorter length between its axles.
The Mitsubishi Carisma has 353 cc greater engine size than the Ford Fiesta IV 1.25 i 16V 75HP manual. The difference is notable. Consequently the Mitsubishi should accelerate faster and be able to reach higher maximum speed. On the other hand larger engine capacity usually equals worst fuel economy.
Maximum load capacity
The Mitsubishi Carisma is 644 mm longer in relation to the Ford Fiesta IV 1.25 i 16V 75HP manual. Long cars have more interior space and usually have bigger trunk. Although the Mitsubishi Carisma Hatchback 1.6 90HP manual seems to be better pick for families or those who value comfortable rides that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Ford Fiesta IV may be more appropriate to city drivers because it will not cause troubles with parking and will be easier for turning in narrow streets.
Number of doors
There’s no doubts that the five-door Mitsubishi Carisma is more usable and if you frequently carry more than one passenger 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 Ford generally look more dynamic and sporty and for young drivers who rarely have more than one passengers in the car the Ford Fiesta IV might be more appropriate.
The higher a vehicle is, the better is the comfort of getting in to it and greater possibility of loading massive amount of luggage to it. The difference at the level of 7 % in favor of the Mitsubishi is small and should not be really noticeable.
