In Shanghai, the company showed a version of the Encore for China, however, during the year, a similar model should be represented in the U.S. market. Just another question, will it be based on “just Encore” or his fellow GX. We’d bet on the second option.

The second generation SUV the Buick Encore debuted at the motor show in Shanghai. The old model was a turned Mokko, however, since then, Opel has gone to PSA, but because the new Encore nothing to do with Maccoy has not. A compact car built on a global platform GM GEM (Global Emerging Markets), which debuted on the sedan Excelle 2018. She also got a fellow Anchor — the new Tracker, the Chevrolet Onix sedan of new generation, and her promise to the little pickup‘s GM.

Complete data on motors, the company has not provided, mentioning only that the car will be the eighth generation of the Ecotec units, CVT and nine-storyed “machine”. From the information of the Ministry of industry and trade of China, we know that it will be liter turbotron 115 “horses”.

Model Encore GX is larger than the Encore, there is more chromium and, apparently, the equipment will also be richer.

Together with the Anchor in China debuted and SUV called the Encore GX. The developers presented it as “an elongated Encore” (length 4463 mm, base 2640 mm vs 4295 and 2570 respectively). However, these machines are United only by name and some similarity of style. According to preliminary data, “j-x” company will give turbotron 1.3 165 forces. And it’s not all the difference.

AWD rear label indicates that at least the older Anchor, that is, GX will be versions with all-wheel drive.

Even by the pictures you can see that GX completely different body panels. But this is not so important as the platform. GX crossover Encore is built on modern modular “cart” VSS, not the GEM. Platform VSS (which has several subtypes) is presented to the GM is more global, and GEM (the evolution of “Gamma 2”) — addressed to the models for emerging markets, particularly South America, Mexico, China, South-East Asia.

Even in Shanghai, the company introduced the model Velite 6 MAV (Multi-Activity Vehicle) EV, the first electric vehicle joint venture, SAIC-GM for the mass market (earlier, a similar car was released as a hybrid). Key numbers: length — 4650 mm, width — 1817, height — 1510 base — 2660 mm, the electric motor of 115 HP and 255 N•m, the power reserve is 301 km “in the city”, the price from 165 to 800 yuan (1.58 million rubles at the exchange rate) taking into account subsidies.

Concept Buick GL8 Avenir — evolution of the existing model. Here is a modified exterior design and reshaped the interior, which received a luxurious second row with separate chairs, the topic of waves and waterfalls in the finish, cashmere carpet and giant screens at the front (including a 14-inch projection). All this close to the series, says the manufacturer.

The company addresses a couple of crossovers to young buyers who are trying to lure not only a fresh design but also the technology of the network eConnect Buick 2.0, the latest version of the driver assistance systems, a five-star rating in crash tests C-NCAP. Emphasized the breadth of versions of colourings and all opportunities for individualization.

History

The first generation model of the Buick Encore appeared in 2012, almost simultaneously with its counterpart, the Opel Mokka. In fact, it was one model with different badges and radiator grilles, but with some differences in equipment. Encore was offered in the United States and China (with their features).

In 2016 Encore experienced reistalling (lower two pictures in the collage), which affected not only the appearance (mostly the front), but has also significantly transformed the interior: has been redrawn and tidy, and the centre console.

The original Anchor was put turboservice 1.4 140 HP, six-speed “automatic” and front wheel drive. In 2016, the Sport Touring version had a different motor. Also turboservice 1.4, but only B14XFT (LE2) is A14NET. The capacity of the new unit totaled 155 “horses”, and torque — 240 N•m instead of 200.

Cross-version got the same design of the front part and others restyled Grants, corporate x-face. And in addition — protective kit, plastic “circle” and the largest Grant the passport clearance is 198 mm.

Last year in an updated family Grants included viburnum, and thus the car became four versions: sedan, liftback, hatchback and wagon. And today, AVTOVAZ reported about the start of production and shipping to dealers the fifth member of this family — raised wagon Cross Granta, which replaced Kalina Cross. The car will come with a pair of 1.6 engines to choose from: 87 HP and 140 N•m or 106 HP, 148 nm.

For advertising photo machine appeared in the color “Aurum”, which AVTOVAZ attributed such epithets as “energy gold, sun, fire”. Feature: 15-inch two-tone (grey & silver) alloy wheels with polished areas.

The company has not yet revealed the features of the trim levels (which will be few) and the prices for Grant Cross. But we know that among the equipment you will see the climate control and heated windscreen, cruise control with speed limiter, dual front airbags, and a box-“robot” with the sport mode.

The interior of the Cross is two tone. Added to the basic black door panels and seats are gray or orange shade to choose from.

Sales of Lada Granta universal Cross will start this summer. Recall that the simple universals are from Granta 461 900 rubles for the version with the “mechanics”, 87-horsepower engine and a nearly empty configuration Standard (one airbag, audiopreparation, no air conditioning). We believe that the universal Cross Granta already “in the database” will feature significantly better.

When describing the outcome of the we have placed the machine in alphabetical order, but in the main got a Mazda 3 as a car, earned 98% for adult protection. Extremely rare figure — I can think of is that the model Alfa Romeo Giulia, Volvo V40 and Volvo XC60.

About the validation results from the seven models reported Association Euro NCAP. All received five stars, and therefore, differences in the level of security they have is pure subtlety. But sometimes they are very interesting. General Secretary of the Association Michel van Ratingen highlighted that producers have learned to cope with the increasingly complex requirements of tests in all types of power plants. In this portion of the test we will see the electric model (e-tron), and hybrids (Corolla, RAV4, UX). Another nice observation: increasingly, the basic equipment of cars get electronic security systems, which have not always met even as options.

For frontal impact with partial overlapping of the crossover Audi e-tron gained 7.4 points out of eight, and strike with full overlap of 7.6. The rear shock has not caused the side — too. But here is a test in which the car rolls Board to the stationary pole — fail. The load on the ribs of the dummy showed brown level (weak protection).

Right of the photo machines shows a graph of the distribution of the load on the dummy driver. On the left, in a frontal collision with an offset in the mid — side impact on the pillar, right — reconstruction of rear-end collision. Legend: green — good protection, yellow for adequate, orange for slight, brown — weak, red — bad.

Model Overall rating Protection of adult passengers The protection of children Pedestrian protection Security
Audi e-tron 91% 85% 71% 76%

Electric car Audi e-tron, as it turns out, has quite a strong body and a well thought-out system of protection. In almost all tests, the dummies (including children) with green and yellow zones loads. In addition to the test column, which we said above. Because of the two side test, the car scored 14.5 points out of 16 possible. Automatic braking and other ancillary electronics did not disappoint, and the Association calculated that one brown label is not enough to translate e-tron in category “four star” cars.

The Lexus SUV high UX and, importantly, uniformly distributed points in all types of tests. Frontal crash test overlap brought him a mark of 7.2, a complete overlap is 7.7, for protection against whiplash injury in a rear-end collision “to the Japanese” gave 1,8 points out of the two possible, and the total points in a pair of types of side impacts — maximum 16.

Model Overall rating Protection of adult passengers The protection of children Pedestrian protection Security
Lexus UX 96% 85% 82% 77%

To describe the results of the validation of the model UX Lexus is just boring. Electronics worked as it should; the strength of the body, the work of the airbags — there are no obvious mistakes have not been identified. On mannequins that reflect the levels of congestion, all body parts painted or green, or yellow (including tests with the “children”).

The hatchback Mazda 3 points for crash tests is extremely high: in a frontal attack, overlap, and 7.7 out of eight possible fully overlapping eight out of eight, for protection against whiplash injury — 1,8 of the two for side impacts — 16 of 16.

Mazda 3 98% 87% 81% 73%

New pyatidverka Mazda 3 showed one of the best results in history tests. We have seen that the final five stars you can get with a bunch of yellow parcels loads and even with brown. And Mazda only the leg of the driver at impact, overlap is yellow. Everything else is painted green: and all the passengers and the driver dummies in tests for lateral impact, and children (both dummies, of different ages), and all parts of their bodies. to find Fault in the Mazda almost to nothing. Is that pumped the test result of the system of automatic braking when crossing the road pedestrian night.

Renault Clio pair of side result of the tests is almost the maximum (from 15.5 out of 16 points), but frontal collisions are impressive: a 7.8 out of eight partially overlapping and 7.7 of the eight. Protection against whiplash injury good on both rows.

Model Overall rating Protection of adult passengers The protection of children Pedestrian protection Security
Renault Clio 96% 89% 72% 75%

Hatch Renault Clio — another model, where all the mannequins in all their parts and in all types of testing load did not go above the yellow level. Numerous inspections of electronics — that is, automatic braking in variable conditions (speed, obstacles, lighting), tracking bandwidth, and so on — evaluation mixed, from good to slightly. Another remark has caused the edge of the hood above the headlights — if you hit a pedestrian, these areas have a heightened danger for him.

The Toyota Corolla earned 7.0 points per hit, overlap and 7.6. Rear-end collision, the passengers will survive well, and your side too (there are 16 points out of 16 possible). All audit hatchback, the Association has extended to the sedan.

Model Overall rating Protection of adult passengers The protection of children Pedestrian protection Security
Toyota Corolla 95% 84% 86% 77%

As in the case of Clio, the study tests the model Toyota Corolla red spots can only be found on the picture that demonstrates checking for collision with a pedestrian. Everyone sitting inside — loads only in the green and yellow areas. If this thing goes on, soon we’ll grumble at the excessive amount of yellow plots on mannequins, and this is an adequate level of protection. The Corolla in a frontal impact with full overlap and gets the driver, and rear passenger (thorax), and at impact with partial — the driver was almost completely yellow.

A frontal attack, and partial and full overlap for the Toyota RAV4 are equally easy (7,4 and 7,5 points), a blow from behind brought the car 1.7 points out of a maximum of two, and side tests — only 15 points out of a potential 16 (a mannequin head in the yellow zone in both types of attacks).

Model Overall rating Protection of adult passengers The protection of children Pedestrian protection Security
Toyota RAV4 93% 87% 85% 77%

Test crossover Toyota RAV4 was surprisingly similar to the test Corolla: upon impact into a rigid barrier the entire width of the machine is yellow, the load on the rib cage is detected and the driver and the passenger. When you punch in collapsible barrier with a partial overlap with the passenger, everything is green except the left tibia, and the driver in the conditional is painted yellow and the breast and both drumsticks. In General in all tests the load only in green and yellow zones. And only pedestrians unlucky, district a-pillars brings the risk of injury.

SUV Volkswagen T-Cross shows excellent results when hitting the back (the 1.8 of the two) and side tests (16 of 16). But the front shocks call remark (7.3 points for the overlap and 7.8 for the full).

Model Overall rating Protection of adult passengers The protection of children Pedestrian protection Security
Volkswagen T-Cross 97% 86% 81% 80%

Crossover Volkswagen T-Cross on mannequins have orange spots. This is the left leg of the driver in a frontal collision, and the neck of the 10-year-old child again in a head. It’s a shame, because all other portions of the mannequin — yellow and green. Several different tests, the auto-brake system showed almost perfect results, however, the experts noted not good enough the reaction of the automation in case the child runs out from the side because of parked on the roadside car. By the way, the pedestrian on the hood “t-cross” a lot of places that are dangerous for them.
