Maximal torque RPM
A greater range and a lower value of rotations at which the highest torque is reached affects an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. Still, in order to have a full perspective on a car’s engine performance, it is always good to check a torque graph.
The width of the vehicle influences on passanger's inner room as well as stability of driving. The Subaru XV 1.6i 114HP manual 4x4 is 1 % wider when compared to the Suzuki SX4 II. It is often clearly felt by those sitting in front, who have more room for their elbows.
The Suzuki SX4 II 1.6 VVT 120HP manual loses with the Subaru XV 1.6i 114HP manual 4x4 in the aspect of fuel tank size. The Subaru is able to take by 11 l more fuel compared with its competitor.
The wheelbase of a car equals the length between its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase notably affects the driving because of more appropriate car's weight distribution. Subaru XV has 40 millimeters longer wheelbase distance than Suzuki SX4 II. Wheelbase dimensions are crucial to the stability and steering. Thus, the mass of Subaru should be better distributed and driving should be smoother and safer.
Ground clearance is the minimum distance between the car body and the ground. From these two cars, it is the Subaru XV 1.6i 114HP manual 4x4 which has 27 % higher ground clearance than the Suzuki. For this reason the Subaru XV will deal better with dirt roads and obstacles in the city. However, the higher ground clearance means a higher center of gravity, which can adversely influence the handling of the car.
The Subaru XV has by 14 cc greater cubic capacity in comparison to the Suzuki SX4 II. This may have a little impact when it comes to accleration, as both values are quite simmilar.
The Subaru XV is 4 percent longer when compared to the Suzuki SX4 II. Long cars have more interior space and usually have bigger trunk. Although the Subaru XV 1.6i 114HP manual 4x4 seems to be better for families or those who appreciate comfortable rides that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Suzuki SX4 II may appeal to the young because it will not make problems with parking and will have smaller turning radius.
A Boxer placed inside the
Subaru occurs to be noticeably
better because it is smaller and creates less vibrations compared to engine with cylinders arranged in a straight line.
What is more you should keep in mind
design causes that a
automobile has the benefit of a lower center of
gravity what affects the better grip. The advantage of engine which cylinders are arranged in a line, like the one
installed in the Suzuki, is that because of its simplicity of
construction it can be fuel efficient compared to
other types of engines.
If you are a tall man or you tend to carry in the trunk stuffs of big size, the Subaru, which is by 42 mm higher than the Suzuki SX4 II, would be better pick for you. However, these two vehicles do not differ much in its height and it should not be much perceptible.
