The Mercedes V-Class II consumes 1.6 l less amount of fuel in the combined cycle in relation to the Ssangyong Rodius II. The difference in the amount of 21 % will be quite significant in everyday usage of the car. In the long term it can generate a substantial cost reduction.
The Mercedes burns up 1.8 l less petrol in city traffic than the Ssangyong Rodius II. The Mercedes V-Class II 200 CDI 136HP manual, that represents van segment, uses 3.8 l fewer fuel. Interesting is that average fuel consumption in the urban for the van segment equals to 11.5 l, while the Mercedes uses by 33 percent less fuel than the average.
The top velocity of the Mercedes V-Class II is greater compared with of the Ssangyong Rodius II by 3 kilometers/hour, which allows the Mercedes V-Class II 200 CDI 136HP manual to cover faster long stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 3 kilometers/hour is small and will not be a very noticable in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed where the maximum torque is produced indicates how fast an engine achieves its best performance with growth in revolutions. The lower revolutions or the longer range in which the torque has the highest value, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration should be felt faster.
distance between left and right side of a car directly influences on room in the cabin as well as stability on road. The width of the Mercedes V-Class II is larger only by 11 millimeters in comparison to the Ssangyong Rodius II and is not really worth considering. The average for the „van” segment is around 1,821 millimeters and is by 105 mm smaller than the same feature of the Mercedes.
Mercedes has 6 % longer wheelbase when compared to the Ssangyong. A longer wheelbase provides more stable and comfortable ride, especially at higher speeds. It also provides more storage space. But, cars with a longer wheelbase will not be as maneuverable as those with a shorter length between its axles.
The Mercedes V-Class II has 146 cc bigger engine size in comparison to the Ssangyong. As the difference is little, the Mercedes V-Class II should accelerate only slightly faster, assuming that other paramerters are equal.
Gross trailer weight
The Mercedes V-Class II is 6 mm longer when compared to the Ssangyong Rodius II. The length of the car is significant in terms of driving comfort and room in the trunk. The Mercedes V-Class II 200 CDI 136HP manual probably will be offering to it's users more room for legs. At the same time the Mercedes V-Class II will be better driven but the Ssangyong Rodius II 2.0 e-XDi 155HP manual will be a slightly easier for parking because of shorter length .
Model release date
Because of the fact that the Ssangyong started to be manufactured only 1 year prior to the Mercedes V-Class II, the gap between technology applied in both cars is not really big, however, the Mercedes might have slightly more advanced solutions applied in it.
