The Mercedes has by 136 horsepowers more horsepower than Renault Vel Satis. The Mercedes E-Class W211 Estate S211 will be distinctly quicker speed up thanks to bigger horsepower. Also maneuvers like overtaking and passing obstacles like TIRs or buses while moving along the road should be a piece of cake for a vehicle equipped with more powerful motor.
The Mercedes E-Class W211 Estate S211 has 192 newton meters more torque than the Renault Vel Satis. The difference at such level is relevant, so that the Mercedes E-Class W211 will be seeding up significantly better.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
If a fast driving is what you are keen on, the Mercedes E-Class W211 Estate S211 will appeal to you as it’s
acceleration to 100 km/h is
faster compared to
the Renault Vel Satis 2.0 i 16V Turbo 170HP manual.
The Mercedes E-Class W211 Estate S211 5.0 V8 (500) 306HP automatic features 240 l

trunk size than the average in its segment. Roomy

journeys as well as while
The top speed possible to be reached by the Mercedes is greater compared with the Renault Vel Satis by 18, which allows the Mercedes to cover faster long distance of highway. The difference at the level of 18 percent is little and will be insignificant in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The RMP at which the maximum torque is produced determines how fast an engine reaches its full efficiency with increase in rmp. 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 should be felt earlier.
The wheelbase of a car means the distance between its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving because of better car's weight distribution. Mercedes has 9 mm longer wheelbase distance than Renault Vel Satis. Wheelbase dimensions are crucial to the stability and steering. Thus, the mass of Mercedes E-Class W211 should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
Number of gears
The Mercedes E-Class W211 has a one more
speed than the
Renault Vel Satis. Generally the
additional speed is a very
tall one thanks to which the previous
speeds can be shorter to
give increased performance in the
lower speeds. One more speed also helps
fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
Naturally the Mercedes E-Class W211 wins in this category. The difference at the level of 2,967 cc than the Renault Vel Satis 2.0 i 16V Turbo 170HP manual. It is interesting that in „upper middle” segment, from which the Mercedes E-Class W211 Estate S211 5.0 V8 (500) 306HP automatic comes from, the average cubic capacity is 2,659 cc and the biggest engine capacity in this class is 7,443 .
Maximum load capacity
A V engine is a
developed version of a
which as far as we are concerned is
a better choice. Engine of V characteristic
installed inside a car the Mercedes E-Class W211 Estate S211
gives more torque at lower RPM ranges because of
the power stroke coming from 2 sides of the crankshaft. This type of
engime may contain high numbers of
cylinders in a smaller package. A
Smooth engine work and thrilling sound is

A stick shift with which the Renault Vel Satis 2.0 i 16V Turbo 170HP manual is equipped is more simpler built and is cheaper in use, however, it is less comfortable because the driver has to work with the clutch and shift gears very often, especialy in a congested city traffic where drivers have lots of stop and go conditions. An automatic transmission in the Mercedes E-Class W211 with gears in the amount of 7 – speeds transmission is in our opinion better one.
