The fuel economy is considerably to Suzuki SX4 II's advantage. This vehicle consumes 5.2 l fewer gasoline in the mixed cycle in comparison to the Kia Retona 2.0 i 16V 128HP manual 4x4. Keep in mind that average fuel consumption in the mixed cycle for the small off-road 4x4 class, in which the Suzuki is classified, equals to 7.5 l while the Suzuki SX4 II burns up by 25 percent less fuel than the average.
The Suzuki uses 47 percent of petrol less in the city compared to the Kia. The Suzuki SX4 II, which comes from mini 4x4 segment, burns up 2.8 l fewer gasoline, which constitutes by 29 percent lower result than the average in the same segment. The difference in fuel consumption between these two cars is really big, so remember that in order to the the comparison have a sense, you should select models of similar parameters.
The trunk of the Suzuki is 200 l bigger in comparison to the Kia Retona. It is perceptible difference therefore in this category the Suzuki SX4 II will be a way more functional. The larger the boot, the more baggage you can carry.
The maximum speed possible to be reached by the Suzuki SX4 II 1.6 VVT 120HP manual is greater in comparison to of the Kia Retona by 13, which allows the Suzuki to overcome faster long stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 20 kilometers per hour is little and will be insignificant in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The RMP at which the maximum torque is delivered indicates how fast an engine achieves its best efficiency with increase in rmp. The lower revolutions or the longer range at which the torque has the highest value, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration should be felt faster.
The width of the vehicle influences directly on passanger's inner room as well as driving stability. The Suzuki SX4 II is 1 % wider when compared to the Kia Retona. It is clearly perceptible by driver and passenger in front, who have more space for their elbows.
The wheelbase of a vehicle equals the length separating its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving because of more desirable car's weight distribution. Suzuki SX4 II 1.6 VVT 120HP manual has 10 percent longer wheelbase distance than Kia Retona 2.0 i 16V 128HP manual 4x4. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the stability and steering. Hence, the mass of Suzuki should be better distributed and driving should be smoother and safer.
Maximum load capacity
The Suzuki SX4 II is 7 percent longer when compared to the Kia Retona. Long vehicles have more interior space and usually provide plenty of trunk space. Although the Suzuki SX4 II occurs to be better option for families or drivers who appreciate soft, smooth long-distance driving that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Kia Retona may appeal to singles because it will not make problems with parking and will have smaller turning radius.
Number of doors
It seems to be quite obvious that the five-door Suzuki SX4 II is more convenient and if you frequently travel with more than one passenger then you should not have any doubts which one to choose. 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 Kia Retona very often look much cooler and for young drivers who don’t often have passengers in the back seat the Kia Retona may be a good one, the more so for being a little bit cheaper than the same model with more doors.
