Gearing makes it less responsive than what those horses might suggest. So it makes little sense to judge a car by its specs!

its not about judging the car by specs, I drove the car and found it un-exciting. and if this car was that good it would have been talked about in this forum a lot more like the vtecs and the balenos.

hello bro,
Mine is 50k KM 2003 model. I bought my car in Oct, 2006, 25k KM old car. A 2nd hand Car, I really amazed to see it's power. It was a direct owner's deal, he bought Accent CRDI and still at present 50k KM old car with CNG Installed can beat the hell out of Fiesta, optra, Aveo (don't know about civic now) as a lot of wear and tear took place bcoz of CNG. I tried with my friends on Express highway. Aveo 1.6L DOHC vs Optra 1.8L vs Ford fiesta 1.6L DOHC vs Hyundai Acces 1.6L DOHC. Race started from 40 kmph to top speed. You wont believe none of the cars couldnt catch me. I drove at 197 KMPH recently on that day around 1 week back. So much wear and tear, car is not tuned due to CNG, my car is running 20 kmph below the normal rpm and speed ration i use to get when i bought the car else my car would had again touched 200+ mark. \
My 4th gear always touches 180 kmph mark easily. Such a high load can be beared by Gearbox only. Just think how much powerful it can be man.

That's why I'm a hyundai lover. Hyundai Verna 1.6L is faster than my car. It's a like a missile on the highway.

If 1.6L Hyundai is so much powerful then just imagin Hyundai Elantra 1.8L is papa of Civic. Elantra 2007 is coming to india in 2.0 L engine with approx 142 HP booster :d A POWERFUL GEARBOX WITH SO MUCH POWER. I'm willing to drive Elantra 2007 against Accord 2.4. Bwahaha i'm dead sure it can beat Accord 2.4 with it's GearBOX Ratio Power. As Accord is also equalent to this much HP.

I read about Elantra 2007 in mexico, and people are saying that it is much powerful than civic. same 2.0L Civic vs 2.0L Elantra 2007. It is much more faster, more mileage and more spacious than civic.

My next car will be Elantra 2007, if it's report is true what i think of.

Thumbs up

That's what i had written brother, gearbox shifting ratio is a huge factor in the power.

Ford Ikon i never heard going above 165 kmph though it is 1.6L but my car Accent 1.6L can go upto 180 kmph on 4th gear.

I have a friend who was crazy about Baleno. He thought my car was just a so so car as he is a Maruti Suzuki lover. One day we both went Delhi-Jaipur Highway and for the first time he drove my car and guess what? lol he is looking for Accent 1.6L dohc (2nd hand car) lol he is a very good dragger who never lost against Honda City GXI. lol he own Alto VXI 1.1

Brother, it also depends how you maintain your Cars. But i assure you, my car never ever lost out of 100s of races. I bought this car for 3.5 lakh last year oct i.e oct, 2006 and now 4 of my friends and relatives wants to buy my car for 3.5 lakh lol all of them knows and saw the performance of my Car.

What is gear box power ratio? How many bhp does the Accent 1.6L DOHC gearbox have? I know the engine has 102bhp but I'm not sure about the gearbox.

So, in this context, the sonata embera could beat the ferrari hands down. We have a Ferrari beater & we didn't even know about it.

You never heard, does not mean that it hasn't happen. Moreover 4th gear top speed in most cars are higher than the overdrive top. The reason for this is that the overdrive torque at the wheels sometimes is not enough to overcome aerodynamic/mechanical resistance.

Agree with you on Hyundai cars. My friend who owns a 8 year old Santro (no mods), can easily manage 140 to 150 KMph in his car. There is never a shortage of power in Huyndai cars !

Sorry bro, i was drunk when i wrote this thread. It was my silly mistake. It should be "GearBox Ratio" not "Power"

LMAO.
Not a ferrari beater but yes, Accord Beater. Read carefully what all i had written dude about gearbox ratio of Hyundai Cars. Getz 1.3 is much faster than your 1.3 Esteem Mr. Esteem Lover. Guess why? bcoz Hyundai is Hyundai.

No doubt. Esteem is a Good car in terms of value. But esteem cant top up 170+ which getz can do.

May be i'm wrong about this topping speed of esteem or may be i'm underestimating Esteem in terms of power.

If yes then i wanna How much it can top on speedo?
