Width of a car directly affects interior space for travelers as well as stability during driving. The width of the Mercury Sable III Estate 3.0 200HP is larger only by 8 % in relation to the Opel Rekord E Estate 1.7 60HP and is not really worth considering. The medium for the „D” segment equals to around 1,764 mm and is by 96 mm smaller than the same feature of the Mercury Sable III Estate.
Mercury Sable III has 4 percent longer wheelbase in comparison to the Opel. A longer wheelbase gives more stable and comfortable ride, especially at higher speeds. It also gives more storage space. However, cars with a longer wheelbase will not be as maneuverable as those with a shorter wheelbase.
The Mercury is 423 mm longer in comparison to the Opel Rekord E Estate. The length of the car is important in respect of travelling comfort and room in the boot. The Mercury Sable III very likely will be offering to it's passangers more room for legs. Aditionally the Mercury will be better driven but the Opel Rekord E Estate 1.7 60HP will be a bit easier to park due to shorter length .
