Having more horsepower the Opel Astra J Sedan 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC 140HP manual will as well provide better flexiblility in specific gears.
The Opel has 78 newton meters more torque than the Kia Rio III Hatchback 3d. The difference at this level is relevant, what means
that the Opel Astra J Sedan will be seeding up perceptibly better.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h

The engine of the Kia Rio III Hatchback 3d achieves its full efficiency at 3,995 revolutions/minute which is by 2,145 revolutions/minute worst result than the Opel Astra J.
Distance between two sides of a car influences on interior space for travelers as well as stability on road. The width of the Opel is larger only by 6 percent than the Kia and is not really important. The medium for the „C” class amounts to 1,703 millimeters and is by 7 % larger than the same attribute of the Opel Astra J Sedan.
The Opel Astra J Sedan has 3 % longer wheelbase when compared to Kia Rio III. Therefore the Opel is more safe and has a better stability. Besides, longer wheelbase has impact on convenient and more comfortable traveling.
Number of gears
The Opel Astra J has a one extra
speed compared to the
Kia Rio III. Most often the
extra speed is used as an overdrive so that the previous
gears can be narrower in order to
allow increased acceleration in the
lower gears. One more gear as well have an effect on decreasing
fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
The Opel Astra J has by 118 cubic centimeters larger engine size than the Kia. This play a little role on vehicle's performance, as both values does not vary much.
The Opel Astra J Sedan is 15 percent longer in relation to the Kia Rio III. The length of the car is significant in terms of driving comfort and room in the boot. The Opel Astra J Sedan preasumbly will be offering to it's users more room for legs.
