Ford f-150. Напоминаем, что в краш-тестах IIHS принята четырёхуровневая шкала оценок: «хорошая защита», «приемлемая», «незначительная» и «плохая» (Good, Acceptable, Marginal и Poor).

Recall that in crash tests the IIHS adopted the four-level rating scale: “good protection”, “acceptable”, “minor” and “bad” (Good, Acceptable, Marginal and Poor).

The insurance Institute for highway safety USA (IIHS) conducted crash tests of eleven pickups. This type of machinery in the past acted not too successfully. The inspection found that progress, all the more interesting that it included a shot with a small overlap of the passenger side. Often the results for the model are worse than the same test with the driver’s side. The results are curious: pick-up Ford F-150 only received the highest rating in all crash tests without exception, however, the only car in this portion of the test, earned a rating of Top Safety Pick, — Honda Ridgeline.

For reference: in addition to frontal impact with a small overlap (both sides), the Institute conducts crash tests moderate overlap, side impact test roof strength, head restraints, forward collision warning, head light and mounting child seats.

Of all the pickups, only three rated as “good” in the test with a small overlap (passenger side) is a F-150, Ram 1500 and Nissan Titan. One pickup received the lowest rating “poor” — Toyota Tundra. The photo shows the results of the strike F-150 (left) and Tundra. The deformation of the passenger compartment in the area of the legs to the right they made up 12.7 and 38 cm, respectively.

Although in all crash tests of the F-150 is made, check the head light earned him the lowest rating “poor”. Weak lights did not allow Ford to tab Top Safety Pick. Pickup truck the Ridgeline, by contrast, was an excellent head light. It depends on the configuration, but in the final evaluation, the Institute takes into consideration the best option (in this case, the version of the Ridgeline with the middle led). But the impact with a small overlap Honda has surrendered only a rating of “acceptable.” But along with the good system of automatic braking it was enough for a rating of Top Safety Pick.

Returning to the Ford, it should be noted that although he was one of three pickups, which received a rating of “good” blow with a small overlap of the passenger side of the body, in this test, the test that is the F-150 called the best (mannequin showed no potential injuries, belts and pillows completed its task without hesitation).

Senior researcher at IIHS David zubi says: three models received “good” rating, two “acceptable”, five “minor protection” and one “bad.” The overlap is 25%, rigid barrier at 64 km/h. In a real situation can be a barrier not only cars, but also wood, road facility. This one is tough. Often a power structure with external parties are not sufficiently ready for it.

The current test has again shown that manufacturers do not always reinforce the right and left halves of the body equally. But the test on the passenger side slowly pushing the company to the necessity of equal strength. Here are the results of eleven pickups in the “small overlap” (passenger side/driver’s side): Toyota Tacoma — acceptable/good, the Chevrolet Colorado is slightly/nice GMC Canyon — slightly/well, the Nissan Frontier — slightly/slightly, the Honda Ridgeline is acceptable/good, Ford F-150 — good/good, Ram 1500 (graduation after July 2018) — good/well, Nissan Titan — good/well Chevrolet Silverado 1500 — slightly/well, the GMC Sierra 1500 is slightly/well, Toyota Tundra — bad/slightly.

Interesting point: like Ford, that dim lights are not allowed Tacoma to earn the Top Safety Pick label. As for the slowing cars, the basic power structure of a pickup Frontier dates back to the 2005 model year, and the Tundra for 2007, according to the Institute IIHS, in comments to the new tests. This is the oldest design tested in this round.

The word Corsair (“the Corsair, the privateer, the pirate”) is somewhat strange choice for a quiet and comfortable SUV. It seemed more suited to a hot hatch. But the Americans say about the connection with the Latin “cursus” (“traveling, traveling”). And this name is historical: in the 1960s, Ford used the designation Corsair for sedans, convertibles and station wagons.

In new York debuted a compact crossover Lincoln Corsair, the successor to the MKC, a fellow SUV Ford Kuga/Escape next generation. C2 global platform has enabled the car to improve handling and raise body rigidity, but also to tighten electronics. Among the advantages of the Corsair called the standard set of security systems Lincoln Co-Pilot360 and technology “the Phone as a key.” It gives the opportunity not only to open and start the car, but to create a personal profile set of systems are automatically activated when you log in. In case of theft or loss of phone function, you can remotely cancel.

As explained by the company, the new SUV reflects the philosophy of the Quiet Flight (“quiet flight”), and hence, the focus is on smoothness, quietness and a relaxing atmosphere in the cabin.

At the same time Quiet Flight — this design theme. According to the creators of the machine, a relatively simple form of compact multiple smooth lines turned into a “virtual mobile sculpture” that creates a sense of motion even in stillness.

Engineers dispatched to Corsair two four-cylinder boosted engine EcoBoost: 2.0 to 253 HP (373 N•m) and 2.3 284 HP (420 N•m). The first motor is five HP more powerful than the previous generation with the same thrust, and the second added six Newton meters, but lost five forces. Both are combined with vosmidiapazonnym “automatic” (the last generation was a six-speed). With each of the motors, you can get all-wheel drive. In normal conditions the thrust goes to the front axle to reduce fuel consumption, and if necessary thrown back.

The Corsair will debut three new versions of the painting of the interior: Beyond the Blue (blue-white colors), Cashew (rich brown plus black) and a Medium Slate (“soft grey” plus “ebony”).

The driver choose from five driving modes, named Normal (Normal), Excite (sports), Slippery (slippery road), Deep Conditions (mud and sand) and Conserve (spare fuel). Of course, the queries of Lincoln adapted the global suspension. Here, the authors machine isolated rear suspension with special “integral bushings”. Judging by a related Focus, we are talking about memorycache, which bushings have different stiffness in different directions and is thus better than a conventional, absorb vibrations and shocks without losses from handling.

Multimedia system Sync 3 eight-inch touch-screen friendly with smartphones and distributes Wi-Fi. Among the options include head-up display, a premium Revel audio system with 14 speakers, front seat Lincoln Perfect Position with 12 adjustments.

Like the new Aviator, Corsair has received six unique audible alarms (bells), recorded by the Detroit Symphony orchestra. They are distributed in twenty-five situations (from the seat belt of the forgotten to open the fuel tank flap). These symphonies should be particularly good to appear on a background of inner silence, not only of conventional soundproof materials, but rare for cars of this class a double wall between the engine compartment and interior. There is also a system of active noise cancellation. Staff at Co-Pilot360 automatic braking with pedestrian detection, monitoring of blind zones of mirrors, holding in the band, automatically switching the high beam and rear view camera.

The second row moves in the longitudinal direction 152 mm. At the conviction of the company, the legroom here more than in some crossovers.

Optionally it is possible to Co-Pilot360 Plus, which includes adaptive cruise control with lane departure in traffic (Stop&Go) technology to hold on the center of the lane, the speed limit by reading signs, assistant to the evasion of obstacles (work, when to stop before it does not work), system of emergency braking when reversing and full samarkandyk (steering wheel, gas, brake), launched by one button. To make Lincoln the Corsair will be a plant in Louisville (Kentucky). In the U.S. the car will appear this fall. Prices not yet announced, but the previous generation model (MKC) is sold in the USA with a price of $33 995 (2.18 million rubles at the exchange rate).

History

Crossover Lincoln MKC appeared in 2013. It was built on the Global C platform as the Kuga/Escape that time. In fact, the model can be represented as a more luxuriously decorated Kuga in the corporate design of Lincoln.

The car was equipped with four 2.0 EcoBoost (248 HP, 373 N•m) and 2.3 (289 HP, 414 N•m), six-speed automatic transmission, front-or all-wheel drive. Optional was adaptive suspension.

In 2017, was held restyling. Most strongly changed the front part, which received a new grille (photo collage on the bottom right). At the same time was expanded capabilities of the mobile app Lincoln Way, and the automatic braking began to react to pedestrians. The demand for large MKC will not name, but it is surprisingly stable. In 2016, the U.S. was purchased 25 562 cars in 2017-m — 048 27, 2018 — 26 241.

In March I-Pace was awarded the title of “car of the year in Europe”, so there is a combo! The best way to congratulate model — buy it. The prices range from 6 246 000 rubles. For the money the buyer will receive a 400 HP, 696 N•m, the acceleration to a hundred in 4.8 seconds and a range of 480 km cycle WLTP.

In new York announced the winners of the competition World Car of the Year, and the crossover Jaguar I-Pace was the winner in several categories. In the struggle for the main prize of the “Brit” walked another electric car Audi e-tron, as well as a pair of Volvo S60/V60. In addition, the “Ah-pace” award for the best design of the year (World Car Design of the Year) and the title of “most green” (World Green Car). For the brand Jaguar is already a second triumph at the WCOTY, because in 2017 the victory was won by the SUV F-Pace.

SUV Suzuki Jimny fourth generation was the leader in category World Urban Car (best city car), ahead of the Hyundai Santro and the Kia Soul. It seems the jury (86 motoring journalists from 24 countries) started the Jimny trolling hard, but the Japanese did not seem offended.

In the segment of autoreclose (World Luxury Car) was not equal to Audi A7 (behind Audi Q8 and BMW eighth series). Award for performance (World Performance Car) earned McLaren 720S, not the Aston Martin Vantage or Mercedes-AMG GT. Man of the year (World Car Person of the Year) named Sergio Marchionne, who died last summer. The jury noted the achievements of Manager at the helm of FCA, and his concern for Ferrari.
