The Mercedes A-Class W176 has 270 hp more horsepower than Kia Venga. The Mercedes A-Class W176 45 AMG 360HP automatic 4x4 will be distinctly better speed up thanks to grater amout of horses under its hoot. Also getting ahead of other cars while driving should be a piece of cake for a car equipped with stronger engine.
When you push the gas pedal and you start accelerating fast, that’s torque you’re feeling. And you will experience it better driving the Mercedes A-Class W176 as it has 314 Nm more torque than the Kia. Compared vehicles vary so much that only driving the Mercedes A-Class W176 45 AMG 360HP automatic 4x4 you will have a pleasurable sensations of getting pressed back in the seat when it accelerate.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
If a swift driving is what you realy like, the Mercedes fits you better because it’s
acceleration from 0 to 100 Km/h is
better in comparison to
Trunk capacity with seats down
The Kia has 65 kilometers/hour lower top velocity compared to the Mercedes A-Class W176, thanks to which covering a long route, for example when it is straight and there is no speed limits, will need more time. The difference might be noticeable during riding on on the road without speed limits to the car of Mercedes brand advantage.
Maximal torque RPM
A wider range and a lower value of rotations at which the highest torque is delivered determines an engine’s performance. Still, in order to eliminate engines drawbacks like e.g. turbo lug, it is always worth to analyze a torque graph.
distance between left and right side of a car influences on the amount of space for passengers and also stability during driving. The width of the Mercedes is larger only by 13 mm in relation to the Kia Venga and is not really important. The average for the „microvan” class amounts to around 1,748 mm and is by 28 mm smaller than the same attribute of the Mercedes.
In the aspect of fuel tank size it is the Mercedes which can carry 9 % more fuel compared with the Kia Venga. The medium fuel tank size in the microvan class, from which the Mercedes A-Class W176 45 AMG 360HP automatic 4x4 comes from, is 51 liters, whereas in microvan segment (represented by the Kia Venga) it amounts to 51 liters.
The wheelbase of a car equals the length separating its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase notably affects the driving due to more desirable vehicle's weight distribution. Mercedes A-Class W176 has 91 mm longer wheelbase distance in relation to Kia Venga 1.4 DOHC CVVT 90HP manual. Wheelbase dimensions are crucial to the balance and steering. Thus, the mass of Mercedes A-Class W176 45 AMG 360HP automatic 4x4 should be better distributed and driving should be smoother and safer.
Number of gears
The Mercedes A-Class W176 45 AMG 360HP automatic 4x4 has a one more
gear than the
Kia Venga. Generally this
additional speed is a very
tall one thanks to which the previous
speeds can be shorter to
allow increased acceleration in the
lower speeds. One more gear also have an effect on decreasing
fuel consumption and CO2 output.
The Mercedes A-Class W176 has 26 percent larger engine displacement in relation to the Kia Venga 1.4 DOHC CVVT 90HP manual. The difference is relatively substantia. Consequently the Mercedes A-Class W176 45 AMG 360HP automatic 4x4 should accelerate faster and be able to reach higher top speed. On the other hand greater engine capacity means worst fuel consumption.
The Mercedes A-Class W176 45 AMG 360HP automatic 4x4 is 6 percent longer when compared to the Kia Venga. Long vehicles have more interior space and also have bigger trunk. While the Mercedes A-Class W176 occurs to be better for families or persons who appreciate soft, smooth long-distance rides that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Kia Venga may be more appropriate to the young as it will not make problems with parking and will be easier for turning in narrow streets.
Model release date
Given that the Kia Venga debuted only 3 years prior to the Mercedes, the distance in technology applied in both cars is not really huge, however, the Mercedes A-Class W176 might have a bit more new solutions used in it.
A stick shift with which the Kia Venga is equipped is more simpler construction and is cheaper in usage but it is less comfortable as there is no need to work with the clutch to change gears very often, especialy in a bussy urban traffic where we have lots of stop and go situations. An automatic gearbox in the Mercedes with 7 – speeds transmission is in our opinion better to use.
