    A

    What practical use do I have for a 0-60 time which is 2 seconds quicker? Or am I buying a car for track use only? Am I young and single therefore this will impress my mate/get me a girlfriend? Am I middle aged and married where such a feature would satisfy the feeling that something is not right in my life? Am I coming up to retirement and think "one last blast old thing"? I feel that unless I can become at one with the purchasers motivation I cannot really answer that question.

    0 - 60 time is totally academic in real use.
    And on a 35k car would be quick enough anyway.

    Kind of depends how fast it is to start with. The difference between 5 and 7 seconds 0-60 is much more significant than 12 and 14.

    Say it was 10 to begin with, I'd say f).

    What he said. Acceleration means nothing to me in a jamjar, I get around 60mpg from my diesel Note by being light on the pedal.

    As for emissions - m'eh, I'm old.

    Thanks for a sensible reply.


    The question is actually deliberately misleading. The system will actually provide peak torque from just above idle, its just difficult to explain the benefits of that to everybody (people with less mechanical knowledge for example).
