The Mercedes C-Class W204 Estate T204 Facelifting 200 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY 136HP manual uses 3 l fewer fuel in the mixed cycle in comparison to the Subaru Legacy V. The difference in the amount of 36 percent will be quite realy noticeable in everyday usage of the vehicle. In the long period of time it will result in a substantial cost reduction.
Thanks to 166 newton meters more torque, the engine of the Mercedes does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Subaru Legacy V. This, in turn, produces better a car's acceleration.
The Mercedes C-Class W204 burns up 45 % of oil fewer running around the town compared to the Subaru Legacy V Estate 2.0 i 150HP manual. The Mercedes C-Class W204 Estate T204 Facelifting 200 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY 136HP manual, which comes from D class, burns up 4.2 l less fuel, which constitutes by 39 percent better result in comparison to the average in the same segment. The difference in this category between compared vehicles is really big, so note that so as to the comparison was adequate, you should pick up cars with similar characteristics.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A small difference that amounts to 0.3 s shows that the Subaru is the worst vehicle of these two compared. In the „large family cars segment, being represented by the Subaru Legacy V Estate 2.0 i 150HP manual, the medium acceleration to 100km/h is 9.9 s and is by 1 % lower than this of Subaru car.
The maximum velocity of the Mercedes C-Class W204 is higher in comparison to this of the Subaru Legacy V which allows to cover the same distance on the highway faster. The difference at the level of 1 % is not big and is imperceptible in everyday use.
Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed where the maximum torque is produced shows us how fast an engine achieves its best efficiency with growth in revolutions. The lower rmp or the wider range in which the torque is the highest, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration should be felt faster.
The wheelbase of a car equals the length separating its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase notably affects the driving because of more desirable vehicle's weight distribution. Mercedes C-Class W204 Estate T204 Facelifting has 1 percent longer wheelbase distance when compared to Subaru Legacy V. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the balance and steering. Thus, the mass of Mercedes C-Class W204 should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
Number of gears
The Mercedes has only one extra
gear in relation to the
Subaru Legacy V. Generally the
extra speed is used as an overdrive so that the previous
gears can be shorter to
give increased performance in the
lower speeds. One more speed also will result in smaller
fuel consumption and CO2 output.
The Mercedes has by 7 % larger engine displacement than the Subaru. This play a little role on vehicle's performance, as both figures does not vary much.
