The horsepower of the Opel Frontera B Standard is 35 horsepowers bigger in comparison to the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I. While the difference is small it should not affect the vehicles performance largely.
The Opel burns up 0.3 l fewer fuel in the mixed cycle in relation to the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4. The Opel Frontera B, which is palced in „large off-road 4x4” segment uses by 1 liter more fuel than the average in its segment. The average fuel consumption in this class in the combined cycle is 12.2 l.
Maximum torque of the Opel is 15 percent bigger than the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4. For this reason, the Opel Frontera B Standard 3.2 V6 205HP manual 4x4 will accelerate a little bit faster and be better to overtake other vehicles. Appropriate use of the flexibility of the engine may also make that the Opel Frontera B Standard 3.2 V6 205HP manual 4x4 will burn up on average fever fuel per 100 kilometers.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A little difference at the level of 2.5 s shows that the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I is somewhat beaten in this confrontation. In the „large 4x4 ” class, to which the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4 is assigned, the medium acceleration is 10.5 s and is by 22 percent faster than acceleration of Mitsubishi’s vehicle.
The top speed possible to be reached by the Opel Frontera B Standard 3.2 V6 205HP manual 4x4 is greater in relation to this of the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I by 9 kilometers/hour, which allows the Opel Frontera B Standard to cover faster long stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 9 kilometers per hour is small and will be negligible in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
A wider range and a lower number of revolutions at which the maximum torque is delivered has an impact on an engine’s performance. However, in order to have a full perspective on a car’s engine performance, it is worth to analyze a torque performance graph.
Width of a car directly affects interior space for travelers and also stability while driving. The Opel Frontera B Standard 3.2 V6 205HP manual 4x4 is widther only by 89 millimeters compared with the Mitsubishi and is not really important. The average for the „large 4x4 ” segment is 1,866 millimeters and is by 82 millimeters smaller than the same feature of the Opel.
Number of gears
The Opel Frontera B has a one extra
speed in comparison to the
Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4. Most often the
additional speed is used as an overdrive thanks to which the previous
gears can be narrower in order to
allow better performance in the
lower gears. One more speed also will contribute to smaller
fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
Ground clearance is a vital factor in several important features of a vehicle. Ride height is very important in off-road cars still all cars appreciate the higher suspension. The Opel Frontera B Standard 3.2 V6 205HP manual 4x4 has 14 mm larger clearance when compared with the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I. Apart from effective mobility in rough terrain, the Opel Frontera B Standard 3.2 V6 205HP manual 4x4 will also be easier to overcome city obstacles like high kerbstones, for example.
The Opel has by 7 percent greater engine displacement in comparison to the Mitsubishi. This may have a little impact when it comes to accleration, as both figures does not differ much.
The Opel Frontera B Standard is 1 percent longer in relation to the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I. Long cars are more spacious and in most cases have bigger trunk. While the Opel Frontera B occurs to be better choice for families or those who value convenient driving that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I may be more appropriate to singles as it will not make problems with parking and will be more maneuverable.
Model release date
Because of the fact that the Mitsubishi was unveiled only 2 years prior to the Opel, the distance in technology applied in both cars is not really big, however, the Opel Frontera B Standard might feature a bit more advanced solutions used in it.
The higher a car is, the better is the comfort of boarding it and greater capacity of carrying massive amount of stuff to it. The difference between these two cars of 1 % in favor of the Opel Frontera B Standard is insignificant and should not be really noticeable.
