The horsepower is a parameter that majority of us pay the greatest attention to. In this comparison, it is the Skoda Felicia I which has by 9 horsepower more when compared to the Volkswagen Polo III Hatchback 1.0 45HP manual, which makes this vehicle somewhat faster. Due to more horsepower the Skoda Felicia I should as well provide slightly better efficiency in specific speeds.
The Skoda consumes 5 % less fuel in the combined cycle in relation to the Volkswagen. The Skoda Felicia I Hatchback 1.3 54HP manual, being classified in „B” class burns up by 0.3 l more of fuel than the average in its segment. The average fuel consumption in this class in the mixed cycle amounts to 6 l.
Because of 22 newton meters greater torque, the engine of the Skoda Felicia I does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Polo III. This, in turn, have a positive impact on acceleration.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A small difference at the level of 4.4 s suggests that the Volkswagen Polo III is insensibly beaten here. In the „small cars” class, to which the Volkswagen Polo III Hatchback is assigned, the average acceleration is 12.9 s and is by 66 % faster than acceleration of Volkswagen’s vehicle.
The trunk of the Skoda Felicia I Hatchback is only 27 liters bigger than the Volkswagen. However, the difference is not big it would be fair to say that both vehicles have more of less the same boot size.
The top velocity possible to be reached by the Skoda is greater compared with this of the Volkswagen by 6 kilometers/hour, which allows the Skoda to cover faster long stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 6 km/h is small and will be insignificant in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
A greater range as well as a lower number of revolutions at which the highest torque is produced determines an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. Still, to eliminate engines drawbacks like e.g. turbo lug, it is always worth to see a torque performance graph.
The wheelbase of a vehicle equals the length between its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving due to better car's weight distribution. Skoda Felicia I Hatchback has 57 millimeters longer wheelbase distance in relation to Volkswagen Polo III Hatchback. Wheelbase dimensions are crucial to the balance and steering. Hence, the mass of Skoda should be better distributed and driving should be smoother and safer.
The Skoda has 24 percent bigger engine size in comparison to the Volkswagen Polo III. Because the difference is not big, the Skoda Felicia I Hatchback should accelerate slightly dynamically, if other paramerters are does not play a role.
The Skoda Felicia I Hatchback 1.3 54HP manual is 3 % longer than the Volkswagen. The length of the vehicle is significant in terms of driving comfort and space in the trunk. The Skoda probably will be offering to it's users more space for legs. At the same time the Skoda Felicia I Hatchback will be better driven but the Volkswagen Polo III Hatchback 1.0 45HP manual will be a slightly easier for parking because of shorter length of the body.
