Does anyone know why the Avensis 3SFE engine is 126bhp whilst the Carine E 3SFE engine is 131bhp.

I was going to buy an Avensis, but after driving the Carina E I found the performance noticeably stronger though obviously not as quiet as the Avensis, just wondered if anyone knew why they reduced the output when the Avensis is also a heavier car. Seems odd.

Just different revisions i think, my Currens 3sFE is 139/140

Umm not sure about the fuel economy idea as dad's CarinaE did more MPG than my Avensis did and they both had/have 3S-FE auto's.

I would reckon on it being more to reduce emissons as they are quite high due to the age of design of the engine, also, by reducing the BHP slightly they may have increased the torque, or BHP and torque might be lower down the rev range where it is more useful.
