Alternator output voltage at the battery

I would like to know about the alternater output voltage on my 1986 190 16 valve. I used my volt meter on the battery with the engine running and got a battery voltage of 13.72 volts. I noticed that most european cars never hit 14 volts. My toyota gets to 14.5 when it is running. Is this normal for all euro cars? My old VW only got to 13.8 as well. Is this normal for Bosch alternators? Thanks, Joe
