Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Honda CR-Z Coupe speeds up 6.1 s longer compared withhis contender. The
substantial difference in acceleration
being in the Mercedes’s favour obviously points
out better vehicle.
The Honda CR-Z Coupe 1.5 i-VTEC IMA 114HP manual has 117 kilometers per hour smaller maximum speed than the Mercedes, on account of which traveling a long route, assuming that it is straight and there is no speed limits, will need more time. The difference may be perceptible during travelling on on the road without speed limits to the vehicle of Mercedes brand advantage.
Maximal torque RPM
A wider range as well as a lower value of revolutions at which the highest torque is produced affects an engine’s dynamism and flexibility. Still, to eliminate engines drawbacks like e.g. turbo lug, it is always good to check a torque performance graph.
The width of the vehicle influences directly on passanger's inner room and driving stability. The Mercedes SLS AMG Coupe is 11 % wider when compared to the Honda CR-Z Coupe 1.5 i-VTEC IMA 114HP manual. It is clearly felt by those sitting in front, who have more space for their elbows.
The Mercedes has 11 percent longer wheelbase than Honda CR-Z Coupe 1.5 i-VTEC IMA 114HP manual. As a result the Mercedes SLS AMG is more safe and has a better stability. What is more, longer wheelbase influences on convenient and more comfortable riding.
Number of gears
The Mercedes have a higher gear count compared to the Honda which means
that Mercedes SLS AMG Coupe should achieve
better acceleration and better fuel
economy. But the difference is quiet
little and unless you are drag
racing at a timed event you would not even
notice the difference.
The Mercedes SLS AMG Coupe 6.2 V8 571HP automatic has 314 percent larger cubic capacity in relation to the Honda CR-Z Coupe 1.5 i-VTEC IMA 114HP manual. Such a huge difference makes that comparision of this characteristics is aimless. The Honda CR-Z Coupe would be the good choice for those who apreciate lower fuel consumption and operating costs at the expense of car’s performance, however, owners the Mercedes should take adventage of better power, flexibility, culture of the engine and as a consequence better joy when driving.
The Mercedes is 14 % longer when compared to the Honda CR-Z. Long cars have more interior space and also have bigger trunk. While the Mercedes SLS AMG occurs to be better option for families or drivers who value convenient driving that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Honda CR-Z Coupe may appeal to city drivers because it will not make troubles with parking and will be more maneuverable.
For a comfortable travelling in the city, it is tempting to opt for an automatic but the choice of transmisison may have a big impact on fuel economy. Automatics may consume more or less from 5 to 10% more than manuals.
