The Suzuki SX4 II 1.6 VVT 120HP manual distinctly gives way to the Subaru in the category of horsepower having them by 100 % less. As a result the engine installed in the Subaru Forester IV has lots of power and rapid acceleration.
The difference at the level of 124 percent is really huge thanks to which the Subaru Forester IV features much more better flexibility of the engine, it reaches high speed much more faster and has better towing power.
The boot of the Subaru Forester IV is only 17 percent bigger than the Suzuki SX4 II 1.6 VVT 120HP manual. However, the difference is not significant and it would be right to say that both cars have more of less the same trunk space.
The maximum velocity possible to be reached by the Subaru Forester IV is greater in relation to of the Suzuki SX4 II by 41 km/h, which allows the Subaru Forester IV to travel quicker long stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 23 percent is small and will be negligible in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed where the highest torque is reached determines how fast an engine reaches its best efficiency with increase in rotational speed. The lower rmp or the wider range at which the torque has the highest value, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration should be felt earlier.
Distance between two sides of a car affects room in the cabin and also stability on road. The Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4 is widther by 33 mm than the Suzuki SX4 II 1.6 VVT 120HP manual and is not really worth considering. The medium for the „small off-road 4x4” segment is approximately 1,797 mm and is by 2 mm smaller than the same attribute of the Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4.
The winner of this confrontatnion in the aspect of fuel tank size is Subaru Forester IV which can take by 11 l more fuel compared with the Suzuki SX4 II.
The Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4 has 39 mm longer wheelbase in comparison to Suzuki SX4 II. As a result the Subaru is safer and has a better stability. What is more, longer wheelbase influences on convenient and more comfortable driving.
Ground clearance means the gap between the car underbody and the ground. As for these two cars, it is the Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4 that has 48 mm higher ride height than the Suzuki SX4 II 1.6 VVT 120HP manual. For this reason the Subaru Forester IV will deal better with dirt roads and high curbs in the city. One drawback is the higher ground clearance equals a higher center of gravity, which can adversely affect the handling of the vehicle.
The engine cubic capacity of the Subaru is by 26 % larger than the Suzuki SX4 II 1.6 VVT 120HP manual. In a consequence the Suzuki will be more fuel efficient, but, the engine of the Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4 will be of better performance, running more smoothly and more durable.
The Subaru Forester IV is 7 percent longer than the Suzuki SX4 II. Long cars are more spacious and usually provide more storage space. While the Subaru Forester IV seems to be better choice for families or drivers who value soft, smooth long-distance driving, the Suzuki SX4 II may appeal to singles because it will not cause problems with parking and will be easier for turning in narrow streets.
A Boxer engine put in the
Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4 occurs to be distinctly
better because it is smaller and produces less vibrations in
relation to engine with cylinders arranged in a straight line.
What is more it is good to
that its horizontally opposed
configuration 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
placed in the Suzuki, is that due
to its simplicity of
construction it can be cheaper compared to
other types of engines.
Automatic gearbox in the Subaru in spite of having a few disadvantages gives much more better comfort of driving. After a long time spent at the steering wheel you probably would be less exhausted. Moreover automatic puts less strain on the engine because of the factory settings of shifts in specific revs range.
