The horsepower of the Volkswagen Touran I is 5 hp bigger in comparison to the Mercedes B-Class W245. While the difference is not big this should not affect the vehicles performance largely.
The Volkswagen consumes 0.5 l less fuel in the combined cycle in relation to the Mercedes B-Class W245. The Volkswagen Touran I, which is palced in „minivan” segment uses by 0.4 l less of fuel than the average in its segment. The average fuel consumption in this class in the mixed cycle is 6.5 l.
Because of 76 percent greater torque, the engine of the Volkswagen distinctly better transmits power to the wheels than the Mercedes B-Class W245. This, in turn, have positive implications for a car's acceleration.
The Volkswagen consumes 0.9 l fewer in city traffic in comparison to the Mercedes B-Class W245. The difference in the amount of 11 % is not realy noticeable in daily use of the automobile nonetheless in a few years it would allow you to make a substantial cost reduction.
The maximum speed possible to be reached by the Volkswagen is greater than this of the Mercedes by 1, which allows the Volkswagen Touran I 1.9 TDI 100HP automatic to overcome quicker large distance of highway. The difference at the level of 1 kilometer per hour is small and will be negligible in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed at which the highest torque is reached determines how fast an engine reaches its full efficiency with increase in revolutions. The lower rmp or the longer range in which the torque is the greatest, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration is felt earlier.
Distance between two sides of a car influences on interior space for travelers and also stability while driving. The width of the Volkswagen Touran I is larger by 1 % than the Mercedes B-Class W245 and is not really relevant. The medium for the „minivan” class equals to approximately 1,785 mm and is by 7 millimeters larger than the width of the Volkswagen Touran I 1.9 TDI 100HP automatic.
The Volkswagen Touran I has 27 percent bigger cubic capacity in relation to the Mercedes. The difference is relatively notable. Consequently the Volkswagen Touran I should accelerate faster and be able to achieve higher maximum speed. On the other hand bigger cubic capacity equals worst fuel economy.
Maximum load capacity
The Volkswagen is 3 percent longer in relation to the Mercedes B-Class W245. The length of the vehicle plays a role when it comes to driving comfort and space in the trunk. The Volkswagen Touran I very likely will be offering to it's users more space for legs. At the same time the Volkswagen will be better driven but the Mercedes B-Class W245 150 95HP manual will be a slightly easier to park because of shorter length .
If you are a tall man or you tend to carry in the trunk stuffs of large size, the Volkswagen Touran I, which is by 3 % higher than the Mercedes B-Class W245 150 95HP manual, would be appropriate choice for you. However, these two vehicles do not differ much it the aspect of its height and it should not be much perceptible.
For a comfortable ride in the city, it is worth to have an automatic but the choice of transmisison can have a big impact on fuel economy. Automatics may consume about from 5 to 10% more than manuals.
