Maximal torque RPM
A wider range as well as a lower value of revolutions at which the highest torque is delivered determines an engine’s performance. However, to have a full perspective on a car’s engine performance, it is good to see a torque graph.
The Lada Niva 2131 1.8 82HP manual 4x4 has 27 % longer wheelbase in relation to the Kia. The shorter wheelbase, the less time exists for shock absorption by the separate suspension components. Thus the Lada Niva 2131 1.8 82HP manual 4x4 with a longer wheelbase may give the smoothest drive. Hovewer, the Kia Rocsta 1.8 85HP manual 4x4 with shorter wheelbases have tighter turning angles and is able corner faster than equivalent vehicles with long wheelbases.
The Lada Niva is 18 percent longer in comparison to the Kia Rocsta 1.8 85HP manual 4x4. Long cars are more spacious and usually have more storage space.
