BHP figures for ZS
i was looking at the specs fo rthe ZS on the MG website and i cant quite work this out..
both the 1.8 16v option and the 2.5 KV6 option are listed as 117ps although one has slightly more torque than the other???????????????
how can this be right, surely the 2.5 should be a fair bit more in terms of BHP / PS???????
can anyone shed some light
the 180 is 177 bhp
thats not what this says here (im not saying your wrong but surely this is ****ing up their sales etc)?????
check out the table at the bottom of the page
Engine Size: 2497 cc
0-60 mph: 7.3 s
Power Output: 174 bhp (im sure ive seen 177 b4?)
Torque: 240 Nm
Top Speed: 139 mph
Engine Size: 1796 cc
0-60 mph: 9.0 s
Power Output: 115 bhp
Torque: 160 Nm
Top Speed: 122 mph
got the other specs from parkers.co.uk
The ps figures are to keep those tree huggers in Brussles happy so they seem as if a car is less powerful. The KV6 puts out up to 190bhp depending on the state of tune, ie in the ZT it has 190 at the flywheel while the ZS has only 180bhp. Similarly with the 1.8 the ZR and ZS come in both 120bhp and 160bhp versions, however that is with the addition of a VVC unit to get the 40bhp power hike.
To be honest the MG rover website is wrong. Check the engines out at[url]http://www.austin-rover.co.uk/index.htm?enginekseriesf.htm[url/]
