The horsepower is a feature that most of car fans take into account at first when buying a car. In this case it is the Nissan that has by 30 percent more horsepower in comparison to the Kia Rio II Hatchback 5d. Therefore the Nissan Tiida Hatchback 1.8 i 126HP manual can achieve higher top speed. Due to more horsepower the Nissan Tiida will as well provide seemingly more flexiblility in specific speeds.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
The Kia is relatively slower in relation to the Nissan Tiida Hatchback 1.8 i 126HP manual. The
difference in the amount of
15 percent is
not really significant and it should
not be vitally taken into
consideration when buying one of these two
The top velocity possible to be reached by the Nissan Tiida is higher in comparison to this of the Kia which allows to cover the same distance on the highway faster. The difference at the level of 22 km/h is not big and is imperceptible in everyday use.
Width of a car directly affects room in the cabin as well as stability on road. The Nissan Tiida Hatchback 1.8 i 126HP manual is widther only by 5 millimeters in relation to the Kia Rio II and is not really relevant. The medium for the „lower middle” segment equals to 1,703 mm and is by 3 millimeters bigger than the same feature of the Nissan Tiida Hatchback 1.8 i 126HP manual.
In terms of capacity of a fuel tank it is the Nissan Tiida Hatchback 1.8 i 126HP manual which can comprise 7 liters more fuel compared with the Kia Rio II. The average fuel container capacity in the small family cars class, which is represented by the Nissan Tiida Hatchback, amounts to 52 liters, whereas in compact segment (represented by the Kia Rio II Hatchback 5d 1.4 i 16V 97HP manual) it is 52 l.
Nissan Tiida Hatchback 1.8 i 126HP manual has 4 percent longer wheelbase than the Kia Rio II Hatchback 5d. A longer wheelbase gives more stable and comfortable ride, especially when driving fast. It also provides more storage space. However, vehicles having a longer wheelbase will not be as maneuverable as those with a shorter length between its axles.
Number of gears
The Nissan has only one more
speed compared to the
Kia Rio II Hatchback 5d 1.4 i 16V 97HP manual. Usually this
additional gear is a very
tall one thanks to which the previous
speeds can be narrower to
give better acceleration in the
lower gears. One more gear as well affect
fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
The Nissan has 29 % larger engine displacement in comparison to the Kia Rio II Hatchback 5d. The difference is big. For this reason the Nissan Tiida Hatchback 1.8 i 126HP manual should accelerate faster and be able to achieve higher top speed. On the other hand bigger cubic capacity usually means worst fuel economy.
Maximum load capacity
The Nissan Tiida Hatchback 1.8 i 126HP manual is 8 % longer than the Kia. Long vehicles have more interior space and usually have plenty of trunk space. While the Nissan Tiida Hatchback seems to be better option for families or those who value comfortable driving that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Kia Rio II Hatchback 5d may be more appropriate to singles because it will not cause problems with parking and will be easier for turning in narrow streets.
The higher a vehicle is, the the more convenient is a getting in to it and greater possibility of loading big amount of luggage to it. The difference between these two cars that amounts to 64 millimeters to the advantage of the Nissan is little and should not be really noticeable.
