The horsepower is a this thing that most of us pay the greatest attention to. In this comparison, it is the Peugeot 5008 which has by 8 percent horsepower more when compared to the Ford Galaxy III, which makes this car somewhat better in terms of high speed. With more horsepower the Peugeot 5008 should also provide somewhat better flexiblility in specific gears.
The Peugeot burns up 13 % less in the mixed cycle than the Ford Galaxy III Van. The difference at the level of 1.1 l is not realy noticeable. However in the long term it would give a real savings.
The Peugeot 5008 1.6 THP 156HP manual has 26 % more torque in relation to the Ford Galaxy III Van. Although most of people do not appreciate the maximum torque when buying a automobile, it describes the best how a car is speeding up. As far as these two vehicles are cars the difference is substantial thus the Peugeot will give you better sensation of driving.
The Peugeot 5008 burns up 1.6 l fewer petrol running around the town compared to the Ford. The Peugeot, which represents van class, uses 1.7 l fewer petrol. It is also worth to know that average fuel consumption in the urban for the van class is 11.5 l, whereas the Peugeot 5008 uses by 15 % less fuel than the average.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A little difference at the level of 1.6 s shows that the Ford Galaxy III Van is somewhat beaten in this confrontation. In the „van” segment, to which the Ford Galaxy III Van 2.0 Duratec 145HP manual is assigned, the medium acceleration is 12.6 s and is by 11 percent slower than acceleration of Ford’s vehicle.
The maximum speed possible to be reached by the Peugeot 5008 is greater in comparison to this of the Ford Galaxy III Van which allows to drive the same distance on the highway in shorter period of time. The difference that amounts to 1 percent is small and is not realy noticable in daily use.
Maximal torque RPM
A big difference in revolutions per minute at which the maximum torque is generated distinctly indicates that the winner is is this of the Peugeot 5008 1.6 THP 156HP manual. The engine of the Ford Galaxy III reaches its full efficiency at 4,500 revolutions/minute which is by 69 % worst result than the Peugeot.
Number of gears
The Peugeot 5008 has a one more
gear in relation to the
Ford Galaxy III Van 2.0 Duratec 145HP manual. Usually this
extra gear is a taller one so that the previous
speeds can be narrower in order to
allow better acceleration in the
lower speeds. One more speed as well helps to lower
fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
Model release date
The difference in date of commencement of production between these two vehicles is only 3 years, however, new technologies for vehicles are appearing at a blistering pace what may cause that the Peugeot 5008 may feature more advanced technologies thanks to which everyday usage of it may be more comfortable.
