Maximal torque RPM
A greater range and a lower value of revolutions at which the highest torque is reached has an impact on an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. Still, in order to eliminate engines drawbacks like e.g. turbo lug, it is good to analyze a torque graph.
Model release date
The difference in release date between these two cars is only 3 years, however, new technologies for automotive industry are appearing at a staggering pace what may cause that the Kia cee'd II GT 3d may have more modern technologieswhich in a consequence may deliver you more joy of having it.
