The horsepower is a feature that majority of drivers pay the greatest attention to. In this case, it is the Peugeot that has by 9 horsepower more than the Volvo, which makes this vehicle somewhat faster. Due to more horsepower the Peugeot will also provide somewhat better flexiblility in specific speeds.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A small difference in the amount of 1.1 s suggests that the Volvo C30 Hatchback 3d is insensibly beaten in this confrontation. In the „lower middle” class, to which the Volvo C30 is assigned, the average acceleration amounts to 11.3 s and is by 0.5 s faster than acceleration of Volvo’s vehicle.
The maximum velocity possible to be reached by the Peugeot 307 II is greater than of the Volvo C30 by 3, which allows the Peugeot to cover faster long distance of highway. The difference at the level of 3 percent is small and will not be a very noticable in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
A greater range as well as a lower number of rotations at which the maximum torque is produced has an impact on an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. However, to eliminate engines drawbacks like e.g. turbo lug, it is worth to check a torque graph.
The winner of this comparison in the category of fuel tank size is Peugeot that is able to carry by 17 percent more petrol in comparison to the Volvo C30 Hatchback 3d 1.6 100HP manual.
Maximum load capacity
Number of doors
There’s no doubts that the five-door Peugeot is more usable and if you regularly drive with more than one people then you should not have any doubts which one to choose. The strongest point of a five-door vehicle is that it’s not only easier for passengers to climb into the rear seats but it’s as well easier to place luggage and cargo into the vehicle when the rear seats are folded down. However, three-door cars like the Volvo very often look much cooler and for young drivers who rarely have more than one passengers in the car the Volvo C30 Hatchback 3d might be a good one, the more so for being a little bit cheaper than the same model with more doors.
The higher a car is, the the more convenient is a boarding it and greater capacity of loading massive amount of stuff to it. The difference between these two cars at the level of 45 mm to the advantage of the Peugeot is small and does not matter much.
