The Volvo is equipped with petrol which produce by 71 more horsepower than the the engine of the Hyundai, giving the vehicle a much more sporty character. It seems to be better choice for drivers who would like to experience thrill of getting behind the wheel of a sports car.
When you step on the gas pedal and you start speeding up rapidly, that’s torque you’re feeling. And you will feel it better sitting at the steering wheel of the Volvo V40 II Cross Country 2.0 T4 180HP automatic 4x4 as it has 161 Nm more torque when compared to the Hyundai i30 I CW 1.4 DIHC CVVT 109HP manual. Compared vehicles vary so much that only driving the Volvo V40 II you will experience a pleasurable sensations of getting pressed back in the seat when it accelerate.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Volvo V40 II speeds up to 100k\h
quicker than the Hyundai. A significant difference in
acceleration in favor of the Volvo V40 II Cross Country 2.0 T4 180HP automatic 4x4 will allow him to overtake much
quicker and avoid other obstacles.
The maximum speed of the Volvo V40 II Cross Country is greater as compared to this of the Hyundai i30 I which allows to cover the same distance on the highway faster. The difference at the level of 23 km/h is little and is imperceptible in everyday use.
Maximal torque RPM
The RMP where the highest torque is produced indicates how fast an engine achieves its best performance with increase in revolutions. The lower revolutions or the wider range in which the torque has the highest value, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration is felt earlier.
Distance between two sides of a car directly influences on the amount of space for passengers and also stability on road. The Volvo V40 II Cross Country 2.0 T4 180HP automatic 4x4 is widther only by 8 millimeters than the Hyundai i30 I CW 1.4 DIHC CVVT 109HP manual and is not really worth considering. The medium for the „lower middle” class is 1,703 mm and is by 5 percent smaller than the same feature of the Volvo V40 II Cross Country 2.0 T4 180HP automatic 4x4.
Number of gears
The Volvo has only one additional
speed than the
Hyundai i30 I CW. Most often this
additional speed is a taller one thanks to which the previous
speeds can be narrower in order to
allow increased performance in the
lower gears. One more speed as well helps to lower
fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
The Volvo V40 II has 42 percent larger engine size when compared to the Hyundai. The difference is relatively big. For this reason the Volvo should accelerate faster and be able to achieve higher top speed. On the other hand greater engine displacement usually means worst fuel economy.
Model release date
Given that the Hyundai was introduced only 5 years before the Volvo V40 II Cross Country, the gap between technology used in both cars shouldn’t be really huge, however, the Volvo V40 II Cross Country 2.0 T4 180HP automatic 4x4 might have a bit more modern solutions applied in it.
A manual transmission with which the Hyundai i30 I CW 1.4 DIHC CVVT 109HP manual is equipped is less complex built and is cheaper in usage, however, also it is less comfortable because it requires the driver to put on clutch to shift speeds very often, especialy in a jammed city traffic where drivers have lots of stop and go situations. An automatic transmission put in the Volvo with 6 – speeds gearbox is in our opinion better to use.
