Consequently the Mercedes is able to reach higher speed. With more horsepower the Mercedes GLA should also give noticeably more flexiblility in specific gears.
The Mercedes has 62 Nm more torque when compared to the Renault. Even though the majority of drivers do not take into consideration the maximum torque when buying a car, it informs the best how a car acclerates. When it comes to compared vehicles the difference is substantial hence the Mercedes GLA will provide you with better feeling of driving.

The Mercedes GLA 200 156HP manual can reach the speed of 100Km/h in 8.9 s, which is 18 % less than the Renault Captur TCe EDC 120HP automatic. But the difference is not as much big to be taken into consideration when buying a vehicle.
The maximum velocity of the Mercedes is greater in comparison to this of the Renault Captur which allows to cover the same distance on the highway faster. The difference that amounts to 25 kilometers per hour is little and is imperceptible in daily use.
Maximal torque RPM
The RMP where the highest torque is produced shows us how fast an engine achieves its full efficiency with increase in revolutions. The lower rotational speed or the wider range in which the torque is the greatest, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration should be felt earlier.
Width of a vehicle directly influences on room in the cabin and also stability while driving. The Mercedes is widther only by 26 millimeters than the Renault and is not really worth considering. The medium for the „small off-road 4x4” segment amounts to approximately 1,797 mm and is by 7 mm larger than the width of the Mercedes GLA.
