Mitsubishi outlander. В России Outlander доступен с тремя бензиновыми атмосферными двигателями. «Четвёрки» 2.0 (146 л.с., 196 Н•м) и 2.4 (167 л.с., 222 Н•м) агрегатируются вариатором, а трёхлитровая V-образная «шестёрка» (227 л.с., 291 Н•м) работает в паре с шестиступенчатым «автоматом».

In Russia, the Outlander is available with three petrol atmospheric motors. “Four” 2.0 (146 HP, 196 N•m) and 2.4 (167 HP, 222 N•m) is aggregated with a variator, and a three-liter V-shaped “six” (227 HP, 291 N•m) is paired with a six-speed “automatic”.

The buyer of a new midsize crossover for the 1.6–2.4 million rubles have plenty to choose from even not sparkling diversity of the Russian market. One of the most common options — Mitsubishi Outlander, and we study it a slightly updated version on the roads of Tomsk and the surrounding area. Modified bumpers, decorative door moldings, rims, and cars expensive, new spoiler. In the top configuration the headlights are fully led, the other the high beam remains halogen.

Promotional price — 1 439 000, but it starts with 1 639 000. For all-wheel drive crossover is asking for at least 1.8 million, and if the motor 2.4 — 2 070 000. The GT version with a V6 engine will cost 2.4 million.

To distinguish the updated interior, you must know what it was. The front seats provided more lateral support. All the Windows received an automatic mode, and the block is highlighted. Sorry, the motion of the glass feels like breathing door trim. Front USB connector is moved from the armrest to the base of the center console. Another port came from behind, along with personal air ducts. For older models of the prepared inlays, simulating carbon fiber, and the initial Inform and Invite settle for the black gloss.

Finishing materials are of medium quality. My classmates Outlander is the interior and more ergonomic and pleasant to the touch. Widely used in Mitsubishi black gloss collects scratches and fingerprints.

Outlander is not too friendly for tall drivers like me. The wheel want to lift higher and stronger pulling is okay. But with the growth of 190 cm I don’t have enough range of longitudinal adjustment of the chair! Instruments read normal, although the modes of the two-section switch button in the blind spot to the left of the steering wheel. To activate the heated windshield and steering wheel, reach down. Its rim is heated only in the area of the grip. Landing “a” worry about the roof, though the knees and feet are placed with the stock…

Multimedia system that adequately responds to the touch screen, supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Some modifications include a rear view camera, devoid of a washer, with an outstanding picture quality.

The most marketable two-liter crossover on test drive not shown. I found the 146-HP version from a local dealer, even in this Outlander gives you a feeling of easy power shortage. It seems that he is not much inferior to the returns version 2.4, but all he is given more difficult: traffic lights and acceleration and a set speed with speed. Paying extra for a more powerful engine, you get a more solid product.

Makes Mitsubishi Outlander office in Russia: it accounts for 55% of sales of the brand. While the share of the two-litre version reaches 70% of Outlanders. Modifications to the engine 2.4 (pictured) attracted a quarter of the audience. And the three-liter GT is not more than five percent.

From the 167-strong polnoprivodniki. a light wheel with a recalibrated electric power steering, but from the first meters it is surprising responsive accelerator. The CVT quickly chooses an appropriate gear ratio, not allowing the motor to hang on a single note. 2.4 opportunities atmosfernika enough to join in a lively stream, overtaking on a country road are without nerves. Need to accelerate sharply — grab paddle shifters if provided by the package. Box and then react to them even faster than “automatic” Outlander GT.

The new bumpers did not affect the geometry. The angles of entry, exit and ramps is still equal to 21 degree centigrades. The claimed ground clearance — 215 mm.

Six-cylinder top model gives you great ease of acceleration, and by 5000 rpm enjoy a hybrid sound. But the principal gain in dynamics compared to the 2.4 does not. Passport acceleration to 100 km/h almost two seconds better (10.5 s versus 8.7), but the family crossover allows you to focus on this. Automatic, invisible on partial loads, takes a pause with every kickdown, so for intensive acceleration course is better to choose a lower. In General, if you ride safely, three-liter Outlander you don’t need.

Now all four-wheel drive versions put the button for Electromechanical Parking brake on the center tunnel. Button 4WD sequentially changing modes: Eco, Auto and Lock forced. The car with S-AWC all a little differently: AWC eco, Normal, Snow and Lock.

Spend the extra 330 thousand rubles for GT makes sense, if you are interested in an advanced all-wheel drive S-AWC. Compared with the standard transmission this is complemented by an electronically locking front differential firm GKN. Controller that is running other software polls the more sensors and uses the lock together with a selective braking of the wheels.

The chassis is not alien to the active drive and it is good energy on the bumpy road. To the brakes either version of questions arise: slowing dosed intuitive.

In civil regimes the influence of the S-AWC is not obvious, but is felt in the limit. Despite the heavy engine, me more interesting and easier to quickly on the pavement. In turn put more speed, the risk of demolition below. Journalistic tests suggest that the lock may instead force the Outlander plugit under the thrust. But in these conditions, the GT seemed to me the most driverscom…

Additional USB port for rear passengers appearing on the two-litre cars only in the two most expensive models. Crossovers with more powerful engines, it is included in the list of standard equipment.

The dampers retrofitted to the entire line of Outlander for a better ride in slow motion. However, small bumps on the chassis still harsh and medium shakes, although it does not cause discomfort. With increasing speed the shaking is not progressing, and the little things become invisible. The primer is comfortable to hold 60 km/h, only large pits are forced to withdraw suspension on the rebound with a characteristic roar.

The cargo Bay of the correct form hiding under the false panels glued to the floor of the organizer, which, according to the Japanese, don’t start to rattle with age. There is a spot under the shade. The spare tire is hanging from under the bumper.

In other situations, the crossover is quiet: noise isolation is another aspect of improvements in the restyling. In the city don’t bother studded Bridgestone tires, the dirt, the stones. Aerodynamic noise starts after 110 km/h. importantly, the improvement of riding comfort and optimization of the chassis touch all versions, so the Outlander forces to strengthen the already good position in the segment. By the end of September the Outlander entered the top three best-sellers with a score of 17 266 machines, losing high-end Toyota RAV4 six thousand units sold.

During a 300-kilometer mileage, the average fuel consumption of Outlander 2.4 to 11.5 l/100 km on the trip computer against 13.9 liters per hundred from a three-liter GT. While the V6 requires the “ninety-fifth”, in others you can pour AI-92.

It is still one of the longest vehicles in the class (although the wheelbase is mediocre), and V6 motors there is rare. But top model is a conditional demand, and “many bodies” in the case of a two-liter engine means a sluggish dynamics. For a family car it is important the hospitality of the cabin, and immediately comes to mind is not less capacious Kodiaq (sixth segment). And the Mazda CX-5 (fifth class) or Volkswagen Tiguan (second place) for comparable money encouraging a more modern and sophisticated interior.

Based on Outlander 2012 lies streamlined Global Project platform: front — McPherson strut with double sub-frame, rear — mnogoryichazhka, the electric power steering is located on the shaft. Another update brought increased diameter of the shock absorbers for better damping at low speeds. Modified and stands are interchangeable with the former.

Control unit electric power steering recalibrated to get rid of excessive stiffness in the zero position acquired in the course of updates 2015. In addition, the enhanced sound insulation of the engine compartment and trunk.

Both inline 16-valve “Quartet” belong to the family of aluminum engines 4B1 with the timing chain, and also with a proprietary system variable valve timing and valve lift MIVEC intake/release. Developed in the framework of the project World Engine, with the participation of the companies of DaimlerChrysler and Hyundai engines Euro 4 with traditional distributed injection adapted to the use of gasoline AI-92.

Among the features include hydrotransportation V-belt CVT Jatco CVT8 — hydraulic control of the transmission ratio and reverse gear. Compared to the previous model reduced the number of valves, the power range is extended from 6.0 to 7.0, and friction losses are reduced by 40%.

Aluminum V-shaped “six” 6B31 with 60-degree collapse of the block debuted on the Outlander second generation in 2006. In the gas distribution mechanism which is driven by a belt, also applied to the MIVEC system. The current 230-strong version differs from the earlier different combustion chamber shape, other rods and increased from 9.5:1 to 10.5:1 compression ratio. In addition, the engineers added the EGR system, got rid of Moody intake manifold with variable geometry, installed new spark plugs. The generator is now more loaded when braking and at idle and less under acceleration and uniform motion. Euro-4 engine is paired only with a six-speed “automatic” INVECS-III from the previous Outlander.

From the four-cylinder versions of the 4×4 rear axle is driven through a multiplate clutch with electronic control. It is closed either automatically or manually in the Lock up to full lock. The system S-AWC (in the illustration) on machines with V6 supplemented with a front differential electronically firm GKN does not imply a rigid lock. Both varieties of transmission are supported stabilization system, selectively retarding wheel rotation.

Behind the scenes

In Siberia I had ever been before. Mid October in Tomsk and the Tomsk region is from two to seven Celsius and wind. I was surprised by the description of the city in Wikipedia, where Tomsk is called “the oldest scientific and innovation center with nine universities, fifteen research institutes, special economic zone of technical innovation type and six business incubators”. Do not read — do not guess. It seemed to me that the city is an unusually high number of wooden buildings. Pine nuts — gourmet business card. And most of all striking natural scale and freedom. Best of all, they felt on the banks of the Ob river and tributaries, where we stayed for podsjetnik.

In 1950-ies in the inexhaustible sea of the Soviet special vehicles appeared brand new class unusual and practically unknown airfield of machines for service at major airports of the country air passengers and the new turbojet aircraft. These included a unique and sophisticated means of transport from the self-propelled stairs, Luggage loaders, lifts and autolifts to cleaners of toilets and all kinds of tankers. Many of them no longer exist.

One of the most common boot loaders Soviet airfields

Tagelou airfield vehicles we will leave for another article, but for now imagine how many years ago this spacious bus took us to the plane. Lifting it was hard to imagine that beneath your feet the car. More precisely, the electric car special design. In ancient times it was common in the USSR, self-propelled passenger stairs SPT-104 and SPT-114 for maintenance of Airliners of the Tu-104 and Tu-114 with the landing area at a height of 4.1 and 5.4 meters respectively. They were equipped with electrically powered rear wheels and all units from the accumulators and four retractable supports to ensure the sustainability of the whole Assembly. The driver was placed under the ladder and ran regular steering wheel.

Such electrotherapy differed quiet, easy to use, nice streamlined shape. Short runs, low speed (7.5 km/h), smooth surface and the proximity of electrical outlets allowed to use them in many Soviet airports and in neighbouring countries.

One of the world’s largest ladder SPT-114 serves turbojet Tu-114. 1961

Several other types of self-propelled ladders were mounted on production cars. Of these, the most widely used high-speed sliding SPT-20A and SPT-21 on the short wheelbase versions of chassis UAZ-451Д and UAZ-452Д respectively.

They are usually served in small airports, where they could move out smooth coating and to serve aircraft with a level entry door up to four meters. The ladder is supplied with two tents with 13 lighting shades. To ensure that it is accurate summing up to the plane in the roof of the cab there was a viewing window. The mass of avtorov was 2.6 tons. Maximum movement speed: 40 km/h.

So we climbed into the plane and sitting comfortably at the window. Through it can be seen as a long line of baggage carts carry our bags. But how to raise this a considerable load on multimeter height in the cargo compartment of the aircraft? Then came to the aid of the Luggage autotransporter at-2 and at-4M on the chassis of GAZ-69 with double open or closed cabins and length of the arrows in eight or ten meters.

Simplified one-section conveyor, the at-2 on the chassis of GAZ-69 with an open cockpit

On model at-4M the Executive body consisted of three separate pipelines with the hydraulic transfer case from the vehicle — stationary average and the two extreme flip. They provided a conveyor drive drums, the folding of the extreme sections, raising and lowering the middle part and work the outriggers.

Volvo has launched initiatives for security

Volvo wants to start a discussion about whether the automaker by applying constraints to change the behavior of drivers. As mark is ready to take “active responsibility” for the security, she believes such intervention is their right or even duty.

The Swedish brand is celebrating the 60th anniversary of three-point seat belt — “probably the most important invention in the history of automotive safety.” This device, which became the industry standard, saved, estimated to Volvo, more than a million lives. What’s next? The company has already decided in 2020 to limit the maximum speed of their cars at around 180 km/h Now put forward three initiatives: the E. V. A. project (Equal for all vehicles), key Care Key and the camera that monitors the driver’s behaviour. It’s all part of the strategy Vision 2020, under which the dead and seriously injured in a new Volvo car should not be.

Project E. V. A. aims to provide the same level of safety in the car for everyone, but the emphasis is on the protection of women. After all, they are, according to Volvo, are at greater risk of an accident due to anatomical features. For example, the cervical spine in men stronger.

Initiative E. V. A., the company are willing to share their research in the security sphere, ongoing since the 1950s. More than a hundred articles based on a thorough analysis of tens of thousands of real-world accidents. In particular, the digital library offers access to content on protection against whiplash and injuries of the lumbar spine.

Key Care Key will go “in the” all Volvo cars from 2021. It allows owners to set speed limit for yourself, family members and friends who use one machine. The idea is that Care Key is particularly useful for teenagers, just got a license.

In early 2020-ies Volvo promises to provide the next generation platform SPA, which is called the SPA2. In the basic equipment of all models, built on a “truck”, will include a system of cameras and other sensors that continuously monitors the state of the driver. The main task — the fight against drunk driving (cause 30% of accidents) and distraction.

The prototype two cameras mounted at the upper corners of the windshield, but the exact number of “eyes” and their location in the cabin will be released at a later date.

If the “obviously drunk” or distracted the driver does not react to the warning signals a long time looking at the road, sitting with eyes closed, acting too slowly or, on the contrary, extremely rebuilt — the car gets a right to intervene. It limits the speed alerts support through the service Volvo on Call, and in an extreme case, brakes to a full stop and finds a safe Parking. Except that the police is not, though…

However, along with the carrot there is the carrot in the form of “financial benefits”: good driver not only avoid trouble, but will be much less to pay for insurance. Soon Volvo will announce the first of several agreements with the insurance companies in Sweden. Specific terms of the transaction will depend on conditions in a particular market.

Simple solution: as every year to go to the new crossover Nissan

Most new car buyers still operating in the traditional way, buying a car on credit and paying it in three years, sell a car, to make a new one. However, there are those who have already tasted the benefits of leasing programs, thanks to which owning a car is not burdened with either service or insurance or taxes or other related costs, and the car can be replaced with new at least every year. It is a program jointly developed Major and Nissan. How it works, and what is the benefit?

Affiliate material

Te who are familiar with the leasing scheme, it is easy to guess in the “Simple solution” is one of such proposals. A distinctive feature of the service from Major – regular updates to vehicle: the contract for the rental of the car is signed for one year, after which the customer can either buy a car on favorable terms, or that is more logical for the leasing scheme, to exchange it for a new one.

What is the benefit?

To understand the benefits of the proposal, it is sufficient to compare it with the standard purchase of a car on credit. As an example, take the “average” variant: Nissan Qashqai for 1.6 million rubles. The first condition for the acquisition of the loan is the initial fee in the amount of 450 thousand rubles. Of course, the loan is accompanied by a mandatory insurance of the collateral: for CTP and hull will have to pay 50 thousand and 30 thousand will cost life insurance that is also required by most banks. Things like floor mats and a set of the motorist at the time of purchase against the General background seem unnoticed, however, and they are 5-6 thousand to spend.

Nissan Terrano ‘2016–present

So, paying a lump sum of about 540 thousand, the buyer leaves the showroom. Considering the average annual mileage in the first year of owning the car he will need to pass one to buy a set of winter tires and twice to set. Taking into account the cost THAT 1 in 12 thousand and a decent winter tire as well as tire service and seasonal storage of tires routine maintenance will take another 60. Throw in 5 thousand roubles of the transport tax for the 144-strong car – and get almost the full cost of owning a car, not including optional “special stages” such as replacing the music, seat covers and other.

Well, the third item of expenditure when buying a car on credit is actually a loan. In our conditions, subject to a monthly payment of 37 thousand for the first year will have to pay 444 thousand rubles. Adding to this the amount of the initial contribution and the cost of insurance and owning a car in the first year, we get about 1.1 million – and ahead of a few years of the loan, maintenance of compulsory insurance and so on.

Against this background, the program “Simple solution” fully justifies its name. The fact is that, choosing a car, simply arrive at the dealership with a package of documents, to make an advance payment equal to one monthly – and go on a new car. Do not need to insure himself or the car at your expense, no need to pay for registration, no need to pay extra for floor mats and even THEN: everything is included in the monthly payment. Given that the leasing scheme the actual owner is the lessor in the face of a major Pro, vehicle tax, insurance and registration pays for it. Thus, to go from the salon on the new Nissan Qashqai, in this case you will need to 33.5 thousand rubles – and no unaccounted for additional costs.

The second advantage of leasing – no need to pay for the service and maintenance of the car: all of this is also taken into account in the monthly payment. Getting to use the machine on the program “Simple solution”, the client receives a “complete” winter tires, free tire and seasonal storage of wheels, and-1. Simply put, we can only fill the car and drive it – all the rest is already taken care of in advance.
