Because of more horsepower the Kia should as well provide a bit more efficiency in specific gears.
Trunk capacity with seats down
Distance between two sides of a vehicle influences on room in the cabin as well as stability while driving. The width of the Kia is larger only by 16 millimeters compared with the Mitsubishi Space Star (1998) and is not really important. The average for the „van” segment is approximately 1,821 mm and is by 105 millimeters smaller than the same feature of the Kia Joice 2.0 i 16V 120HP manual.

The wheelbase of a vehicle is the length between its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving due to more appropriate car's weight distribution. Kia Joice has 231 millimeters longer wheelbase distance in comparison to Mitsubishi Space Star (1998). Wheelbase dimensions are crucial to the balance and steering. Hence, the mass of Kia Joice 2.0 i 16V 120HP manual should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
Ground clearance is a crucial factor in many relevant characteristics of a car. Clearance is the most important for SUV vehicles though all cars appreciate the higher suspension. The Kia Joice has 10 percent higher clearance than the Mitsubishi Space Star (1998). Apart from effective mobility in rough terrain, the Kia will also be easier pushed urban obstacles such as large curbs, for example.
The Kia has by 9 % greater engine displacement in comparison to the Mitsubishi Space Star (1998) 1.8 16V 112HP manual. This may have a little impact in terms of acceleration, as both figures are quite simmilar.
Maximum load capacity
The Kia Joice 2.0 i 16V 120HP manual is 537 mm longer when compared to the Mitsubishi Space Star (1998). The length of the vehicle is significant in terms of driving comfort and room in the boot.

At the same time the Kia will be better driven ,however, the Mitsubishi Space Star (1998) 1.8 16V 112HP manual will be a bit easier for parking because of shorter length .
Model release date
Because of the fact that the Mitsubishi Space Star (1998) debuted only 2 years before the Kia Joice 2.0 i 16V 120HP manual, the distance in technology applied in both cars shouldn’t be really huge, however, the Kia Joice may have a bit more advanced solutions used in it.
The higher a car is, the better is the comfort of boarding it and greater possibility of loading big amount of stuff to it. The difference between these two cars that amounts to 132 millimeters to the advantage of the Kia Joice is little and does not matter much.
