And why not, i don't think there's anything wrong with that. For similar power, the City 1.5 does the 0-100 in 12.1 secs.

Now the City 1.5 is just 985 kgs where as the Siena is 1120kgs, a whole 135 kgs heavier than the City. Plus there are so many other factors like aerodynamics, frictional loss etc.

Just having a 1.6 with 100 bhp wont get your car goin faster, you need to maintain a very good power to weight ratio as well and that is what the City is good at.

A 1 second difference doesnt count for peanuts, when you are racing. I have eaten many a faster car....When the gap is so minimal, its the driver that makes all the difference.

similarly, i think the corolla is also a haevier car when compared to the city and worse handling than the city.

the city can kick corolla's butt any bloody day.
