The Subaru uses 11 percent fewer in the mixed cycle than the Peugeot 306 II Hatchback 2.0 XSi 121HP manual. The difference at the level of 0.9 l is not very appreciable. Nevertheless during a longer period of time it can generate a considerable reduction of costs.
Trunk capacity with seats down
Distance between two sides of a vehicle directly affects the amount of space for passengers and also stability while driving. The width of the Subaru Impreza III is larger only by 4 % compared with the Peugeot and is not really important. The average for the „compact” segment is 1,703 millimeters and is by 37 millimeters smaller than the width of the Subaru Impreza III Hatchback.
Subaru Impreza III has 2 % longer wheelbase in comparison to the Peugeot 306 II Hatchback 2.0 XSi 121HP manual. A longer wheelbase gives more stable and comfortable ride, especially when driving fast. It also provides more storage space. However, vehicles with a longer wheelbase are not as maneuverable as those with a shorter wheelbase.
Maximum load capacity
The Subaru Impreza III is 10 % longer when compared to the Peugeot 306 II Hatchback. The length of the vehicle plays a role in respect of driving comfort and room in the trunk. The Subaru Impreza III Hatchback 1.5 i 107HP manual 4x4 probably will be offering to it's users more room for legs. Aditionally the Subaru will be better driven but the Peugeot will be a little easier for parking due to shorter length .
A Boxer engine put inside the
Subaru occurs to be significantly
better because it can be shorter and
lighter and generates less vibrations in
relation to In-line engine.
Additionally bear in mind
design causes that a
car has the benefit of a lower center of
gravity what affects the better grip. The advantage of In-line
engine, like the one
installed inside the Peugeot 306 II, is that due
to its simplicity of
construction it can be cheaper compared to
other types of engines.
Number of doors
It is beyond the question that the five-door Subaru Impreza III Hatchback is more usable and if you frequently travel with more than one passenger then it’s the format to go for. The biggest advantage of a five-door car is that it’s not only easier for passengers to get into the back but it’s also easier to put luggage and cargo into the car when the rear seats are folded down. However, three-door cars like the Peugeot generally look more dynamic and sporty and for those who don’t often have more than one passengers in the car the Peugeot may be a good one.
Model release date
Production of the older vehicle started much more earlier than its rival thus it seems to be right to assume that this car features significantly less modern parts .
If you are a tall driver or you tend to carry in the trunk stuffs of big dimensions, the Subaru Impreza III Hatchback 1.5 i 107HP manual 4x4, which is by 153 millimeters higher than the Peugeot 306 II Hatchback 2.0 XSi 121HP manual, is appropriate choice for you. However, these two vehicles do not differ much it the aspect of its height and it should not be much perceptible.
