The Subaru Forester IV has by 88 hp more horsepower in relation to Toyota. The Subaru Forester IV will be distinctly faster speed up because of bigger power. Also getting ahead of obstacles like TIRs or buses while driving should be much more easier for a vehicle equipped with stronger engine.
Because of 157 newton meters greater torque, the engine of the Subaru Forester IV does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota. This, in turn, have positive implications for acceleration.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A small difference in the amount of 2.4 s shows that the Toyota RAV4 IV is insensibly beaten here. In the „mini 4x4” class, to which the Toyota RAV4 IV is assigned, the average acceleration amounts to 10.9 s and is by 1 second slower than acceleration of Toyota’s vehicle.
The maximum speed possible to be reached by the Subaru is greater as compared to this of the Toyota RAV4 IV which allows to cover the same distance on the highway in shorter period of time. The difference at the level of 36 kilometers per hour is not big and is not realy noticable in daily use.
Maximal torque RPM
The RMP where the maximum torque is produced shows us how fast an engine reaches its best output with increase in rmp. The lower revolutions or the longer range in which the torque is the highest, the more the engine is flexible and a sensation of acceleration is felt faster.
Ground clearance is the minimum distance between the vehicle body and the road. From these two cars, it is the Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4 that has 16 percent higher ride height in comparison to the Toyota RAV4 IV Valvematic 150 152HP manual 4x4. This is why the Subaru Forester IV will deal better with rough terrain and obstacles in the city. There is olso one minus - the higher ride height equals a higher center of gravity, which can negatively affect the handling of the Subaru.
The Subaru Forester IV has by 1 percent larger engine displacement in comparison to the Toyota RAV4 IV Valvematic 150 152HP manual 4x4. This play a little role on vehicle's performance, as both figures does not vary much.
The Subaru Forester IV is 1 % longer than the Toyota RAV4 IV. The length of the car is significant in terms of travelling comfort and room in the boot. The Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4 probably will be offering to it's users more room for legs. At the same time the Subaru will be better driven but the Toyota RAV4 IV will be a slightly easier to park due to shorter length .
A Boxer installed in the
Subaru Forester IV occurs to be distinctly
better because it has smaller dimensions and generates less vibrations than straight
What is more it is good to
that its horizontal
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
in the Toyota RAV4 IV, is that thanks to its simple construction it can be cheaper compared to
other types of engines.
Automatic transmission installed in the Subaru Forester IV despite having a few drawback gives much more better comfort of driving. After a long ride especially in the city the driver is more relaxed. Moreover automatic puts less strain on the engine thanks to the factory settings of changing gears in specific revs range.
