0-60 isn't actually a good measurement to compare. On 0-60 a lot depends on the driver, how well he can launch etc.
A better measurement is 100-200 (km/h) because then it doesn't matter if you're a good driver, it all depends on the car. That said...if your car can reach 200km/h off course
0-60 is a psychological thing for me and, in my head at least, the benchmark for how well or badly a car performs.
I know 100-200 and 80-120 and similar rolling accelerations are more usefull in real life than a 0-60, but I dont care
That said, the 1.0L has the same top speeds as the 1.5L, even with a CVT
0-60 based on cars with similar size, power, torque and weight recoded in car magazines a good example being a Ford Focus 1.5 ecoboost 150ps recorded 0-60 in 8.6 and a 150ps Astra 8.3 , IMO you would be looking at 0-60 around 8.5 sec give or take a couple of tenths with the bluespark 150 box fitted
great, what I was expecting to read
. This is what I was wanting. Smoother delivery and a bit of improved pulling power. I'm not arsed about improving 0-60 or top speed.
I understand your preferences, but why not profit from both?
I also believe one automatically comes with the other
If 0-60 and top speed (the latter I dont care about myself) improves, I would expect that torque, powerdelivery, pulling power etc are automatically improved as well, like an added bonus.
