Mitsubishi eclipse cross,Peugeot 3008,Toyota c-hr. Топовый Peugeot 3008 со всеми опциями (под 2,5 млн рублей) безо всякого подорожания стоит больше, чем Toyota и Mitsubishi, которые обойдутся меньше чем в 2,3 млн.

Top Peugeot 3008 with all the options (under 2.5 million) without any price increase is worth more than Toyota and Mitsubishi, which will cost less than 2.3 million.

In a sense this is a conversation about the irrational. Because all the cars are going not in Russia: Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross imported from Japan, the Peugeot 3008 is also the historic homeland and the Toyota C-HR are from Turkey. Running version is estimated at two million, at the level of localized Tiguan and CX-5 or any “Korean”. Maybe they’re not as original as our heroes today, but the price-performance ratio and the equipment does not cause problems. At the same time Toyota for this price offers only 115 HP motor 150 HP against the rest, and Peugeot — front-wheel drive only.

By analogy with Porsche expecting the jumper wire between the lamps will glow, but no. The Eclipse five fixed specifications, and take mostly two-wheel-drive. Under the hood — in either case, the 1.5 turbo engine, derated to 150 HP, and a CVT.

Eclipse looks fresh and nonpoor. Chromed “x” and gloss black on the front bumper safely exhibited towards the muddy roads. Body gaps are even and smooth, but the biggest, and the red cross on the trunk lid breathes at hand. Keyless entry ― retrocopies in the front pens. The salon penetrate easily, because the roof high, and behind the wheel of a settled home. Or, rather, in the country ― soft seat with a high back and a fatal failure in the lumbar region if prosizhennyh.

Nice looking materials for the Eclipse even too much: glossy insert on the steering wheel are misplaced. Mitsubishi not only illuminates the exit area and do not obscure the mirror. Side door opening without colored nail Polish. From climate control — one mode, not three.

The interior also looks cheap, at least for now new. Silver and shiny plastics located in the steering wheel or on the edges of the console, where they quickly RUB my. In this case, autotelephone saved: this one here. Three other buttons besides are buried in the dark with the glove box. Indicative illuminated Cup holders as well, and in the other two machines.

The instruments are clear, but where is the digital speedometer? Brooding touch screen and the stupid touchpad on the tunnel did not always respond to even the fingers in thin gloves. A volume control is convenient to adjust only the buttons on the steering wheel.

The front seats of the Eclipse are well kept thighs, but bland. Rear more spacious than the competitors, and there is adjustment: longitudinal and backrest. Some lack of space in height can be attributed to the optional sunroof. Heated cushion and backrest of the sofa.

With Eclipses I have met on the European test drive. Russian specification different settings of the engine and metal protection at a constant clearance. Full reserve is reduced trunk space with low opening door: he’s small with a very “Brokeback” floor with the rear seats folded. But the passenger seat is the most spacious and comfortable, with adjustment in the longitudinal direction and angle of inclination of the back. Just enough space over the head of a high rider, but in width there is a potential for the transport of just three. Although the average passenger interferes with the lock to his belt.

This four-wheel drive Toyota with the maximum equipment and the 1.2 turbo engine is not the most sold of the three versions of the C-HR. The main demand is for front-wheel drive two-litre, also with a CVT. The basic “mechanics” of 1.2 T take one.

Toyota because of the flip design and a miniature close door handles at first perceived a toy, although it is shorter than the Mitsubishi just four centimetres. However, the small door slam try ― they are tight! In the salon with a convenient “shelf” control climate control focus on the display of the Central screen. Look at the antediluvian graphics sad, but this year should see the Yandex mapping with the conclusion of the traffic situation.

In the playful interior of the Toyota blue backlight seems nice. There is a classic LCD clock on the right side of the screen. Manage seven quasiperiodically variator can only selector paddles no.

Chairs have C-HR ― mechanical basic adjustment and power lumbar support pillow. Holders keep intensely on the buttocks. The back can be a good thing to sleep together.

The quality of the interior is puzzling. The display housing creaks if you put a hand on him to get in touch “buttons”. Ceilings cheap carcinomatosis material, soft panel in the deficit… “Boxes” for details enough. But the pleasant surprise of the rear seats. Tall passenger behind a high driver is quite normal in the soft touch of the knees of the front seat. You can live, although in austerity: rear C-HR no vents, not even the armrest. The Windows are small, but are well ― seen almost everything. But three is nothing to do here. The trunk is only slightly more eclipsespa and finished with absolutely no frills.

Peugeot 3008 provides a choice of four configurations, two 150-horsepower engines (including diesel!), the sea of options and more than ten exterior colors. But EMP2 platform factory mechanical all-wheel drive transmission and never will be.

Interior Peugeot from another League. Cosmogeny design visually expands the already wide the salon. In the front I feel like I’m in the car a class above, although the seats themselves are rather flat and harsh. Materials with “denim” panels, fitting panels and organization backlighting is by far the best. Even Central and glove boxes decorated with flock and highlighted, not to mention their immense size. The ceiling LEDs. On the racks windshield ― cloth, but not naked Japanese plastic.

Plastics in the Peugeot looks great, although in reality little where you pressed. Buttons and knobs are pressed nice and cool, but in the dark it is necessary to know how to do it: the keys themselves are lit, and the characters next.

E-the flap from Peugeot — “in the database”. Thin font of the speedometer hard to read, but there is a mode where the panel remains only the speed. When switching “moods” i-Cockpit Amplify change display gamma and even perfumed flavour. The sound system booming.

Large cargo Bay happy correct form, and only Peugeot surcharge offers an electric tailgate with Usmanova sensor. And with busy hands, the trunk can be closed to locked locks. Loading height six or seven inches shorter than the other two machines. Rear seat complex fold kinematics in one motion to form a flat floor. Alas, sitting on the bench uncomfortable, hard pillow gives support to the hips. Although the Peugeot open space in the middle between the competitors: the three of us to be difficult, both are fine.

Trehsotmetrovoy racks Toyota and Mitsubishi are small, but the rear sofa, the Eclipse is shifted by 200 mm forward, which adds about another 100 HP C-HR worse finish, and the Mitsubishi speed uneven floor with the rear seats folded. Loading height ― 77-78 cm

Shipping a Peugeot will get a lot more. The volume can be increased from 520 litres to 591, lowering the floor in the lower position. Plus the folding backrest of the front seats and a hatch for skis!

Behind the wheel, despite the passenger landing, also did not immediately sit down in the pillow unnecessarily littered ago. But the cell phone if he finds a place to the right of the uncommitted of the selector. Good idea with made up devices ― the extendable projector Mitsubishi. Just among the design options panel no legkodimova. Almost all of the menu confusing. Saddened by the lack of physical buttons temperature control and air conditioning. They only touch the keys, which is triggered with the second delay. Who knew life, he does not hurry?

The front seats are Peugeot so tight that they cut design felt through the jacket, and feet feel the tube in the rollers of lateral support. Of the benefits ― optional effective back massage and position memory. Back best in a trio of visibility.

You can’t just wave your wipers once when moving the lever in the down position not fixed immediately turned on the rain sensor. Wash it a few seconds after pressing the lever. In General, steklochist Peugeot sad: not cleared a large area at the left of the rack, freezing atomizer on leads that fill the top glass, from where the fluid then flows in front of the eyes…

The Mitsubishi area clean is not too hot, and boast in General, only large mirrors. Halved the rear window of a compromise: the lower part is not falling snow, but sucked the dirt from the road. The Toyota with visibility all bad, scold her only for low hanging windshield stand.

The gap between the hood and bumper from Peugeot obscene. Rear handle of Toyota’s half of the passengers did not find. Rear wiper Mitsubishi hiding under the spoiler, making the sides of the small glass remains dirty areas.

C-HR has an automatic Valet. However, the rear camera is not pleased with the resolution and passive lines on the display. Still not activated after engine start, while the media system will not perform the download within 15-20 seconds. In the Peugeot there is front camera and the side view of the computer paints on as motion is a fun feature. But a full all-round visibility the Eclipse is more convenient, especially when there are buttons on the steering wheel. However, all cameras get dirty with a Bang… the Whole trio flaunts led headlights: the most worthy dazzle ― the Peugeot, the only one who is deprived of freeminutes.

In the basic versions of all the basic halogen lights and no fog light Toyota. For a fee all three machines rely maladaptive led light.

In the set speed variable speed Mitsubishi fresher competitors. But if the overtaking is happy in traffic too zealous reaction at the beginning of the stroke of the accelerator uncomfortable. And draft control in Eclipse the “variable speed”. The Toyota “rubber” in the drive gas is less and the simulated gear shift is built logically, the C-HR does not allow himself a peculiar Eclipse of rybachkov. Alas, the actual sluggish acceleration: the lack of power to compensate for nothing. To 100 km/h Eclipse takes two to three corps.

In the nomenclature of Toyota’s equipment no wheel diameter 17 inch, whereas almost all versions of the Eclipse sported 18-inch wheels, and for Peugeot it is possible to order and “nineteenth” footwear.

Peugeot classic with a six-speed “automatic” is the most straightforward to manage the pull, but moves off with a hitch, if smoothly including the clutch at the start. The limit of the dynamics enough, but on slippery surfaces the promised polutoraletnego advantages over Mitsubishi feel. Brakes French perepisany, and the Eclipse, by contrast, is a little tight. You can get used to everything, although Toyota does not require adaptation and assistance hydraulics ― intensive engine braking.

On convenient devices, Toyota lost a small outside temperature display. Menu mid you can choose one of three driving modes. Media system disappointing low-resolution screen and the tiny touch buttons on the sides of the display.

Eclipse Cross no matter keeps straight, particularly uneven ― and it’s not Shipovka Bridgestone Blizzak Spike 02. Cars on the European presentations as required taxiings. Familiar feeling lazy handling: Mitsubishi responds to the helm with a delay, roll and vague reactive force. The active driver will please only a tendency to drift leisurely in the extreme corner.

Adaptive cruise control Mitsubishi more adequate than Peugeot: do not turn off when stopped in traffic and rather keeps his distance. But 3008-th when leaving the lane gently taxis, and Eclipse only cheeps. The Toyota similar systems no.

Despite 18-inch wheels, Eclipse, rest smoother. Pendant shows the energy consumption without excess stiffness inherent in the other two machines. However, medium-sized bumps cause resonant acoustic resonance. Toyota is the worst: bad road forced to drop the course, and in town for a short wave is haunted. Chassis and shock of little control. On the one hand, the C-HR more and better Mitsubishi follows a light wheel, but vivid emotions in turns causes. Reactive actions are enough for the pavement, and on ice communication at the helm weakens amid low background stress.

Two-story glove box Eclipse devoid of illumination and decoration. Central box — nothing. In Peugeot as much as 32 liters of different compartments, and a bottomless box on the tunnel is illuminated and cooled (though constantly). Toyota is an outsider in the small containers.

“French” is the most acute reactions. Turns more interesting than the Toyota, although the ultimate sportiness to the character of the Peugeot either. The wheel also weightless, but it more feel. To catch it you have to (every time wondering of a square shape), because all the cars have the steering-wheel makes a 2.8 to 2.9 turns from lock to lock. But the 3008 and the turning radius is minimal, and most of these stops are mitigated. Wave asphalt Peugeot repeats even sharper Toyota, but how else swallows the small and medium bumps type of broken joints of bridges! While thoroughbred suspension works quietly.

Only on leashes Peugeot front wiper blades do not rise hand to clean the snow and ice. The right brush is not fully enters the treatment sector of the left, causing the glass flowing excess water. But the washer reservoir is the largest: 5.3 l!

Peugeot is still the least noisy car of the three. Somewhere in the distance, nice rumbling engine, well-insulated bus and the street. Eclipse and the C-HR not to call acoustically uncomfortable. The Toyota at highway speeds is noticeable wind noise, but good insulation from outside sounds. Mitsubishi buzzing my may guilty and at a higher vibration background.

The Mitsubishi and Peugeot ― 18-inch ground clearance and a metal protection powertrain. But damage the silver-plated insert bumpers simple. Toyota these parts are included in the design packages, however, the “lip” sticks out low and away. Clearance of 15 cm is not serious.

Off road only Mitsubishi has a chance ― thanks to all-wheel drive in combination with a large clearance. Effect on the modes of “Snow” and “Gravel” I didn’t notice. Toyota is not for nothing alarming protruding “lip” front bumper: we have measured the real ground clearance does not exceed 155 mm. the Traction control system gently, but too zealous strangling cravings. Claimed for Peugeot 219 mm do not look: in reality, under the protection of the security of the unit 18 see the Grip Control System is not able to replace the complete drive on slippery surfaces 3008 the outsiders, and in powder is easier to disable the ESP completely to tire of rowing better.

How to ruin a good idea: the door to Peugeot covering the threshold, but does not have a bottom seal, and dirty. Retractable projector Mitsubishi does not have enough range of adjustment for tall driver and content.

Peugeot in General is not very ready for winter. Engine ― and with it salon ― basking worse than others, and it is missing a heated steering wheel. Door though and go to the rapids, but not sealed on the bottom edge, where Packed snow. Like only quiet and powerful heater heated front seats. At Mitsubishi he wakes up five minutes later. Climate control with awkward controls have to be periodically adjusted. But the rear sofa and the Eclipse, and the windscreen laced with warm threads. In Toyota winter is more than just hot air too zealously blowing on the windshield, once in the face.

Warranty on all cars three years or 100 thousand kilometers. The service interval is 15 thousand installed only for Mitsubishi, Peugeot, and Toyota it one and a half times less. And gasoline AI-92 is ready to use only Eclipse.

A little old-fashioned habits and ergonomics Mitsubishi does not seem the best candidate for your millions, although spacious and well adapted to our conditions. Practical 3008-th great to the touch and somewhere in the southern regions of Russia seems the best choice thanks to the nice chassis. But in the middle lane it’s a shame to feel powerless every winter starting with a traffic light. Seem to have a lot of Peugeot and ergonomic problems. Toyota C-HR frustrates a simple finish, smoothness and lack of draft stock. But in General, goes to itself and goes — and this company seems to be almost the best option.

Five cents about Mitsubishi Mikhail Petrovsky

I have something to say about Eclipse Cross spent together after the Christmas holidays. Leave, however, out of the equation that is connected with the peculiarities of a particular instance, to the limit of the martyred journalists. But with an eye to the impressions I want to mention the professionalism of Nikita Gudkov — on expert assessment of the Mitsubishi was not affected by the bad technical condition of the test vehicle.

Without going into details, I will say this: there are low-cost capital car-share with the same mileage in much better shape. The Eclipse front turn signals light up traditionally, the two other machines in the test — progressive.

In General, good enough. Judge: I am most pleased efficient lights and Mitsubishi ability to warm up the cabin. Yes, the most vivid memories of the machine are connected to heat and light. It’s been a while. What else? A good marginal dynamics. And disabling the “collar” the snow-covered area, you can enjoy controlled power slides. Like, ten minutes — and the message about overheating the transmission.

Greetings from the CVT. It and under normal circumstances his mind. Reverse the snow only to jump with a running start. If pushing for smoothly, one gets the feeling that the box refuses to transfer a moment, feeling the obstacle. Stand over-revving…

The main thing — the Eclipse Cross is not perceived to be a modern car. Despite decent by the standards of the segment of the vehicle, not feeling like I’m participating in a “fitting” Autoreview in the winter of 2007. Because so rode of a novelty a decade ago. At the end of the test-drive is ripe for a fundamental question: why are 500 people a month consistently choose Eclipse Cross? Because they brought two million rubles to the dealer of your favorite brands, and Outlander, for which they came, too big, old and shabby inside.

To many oddities of the Eclipse can be used for something — just close your eyes. However, over the ten days I had not learned to find in the dark key Central locking. But the control unit is always dirty mirrors are arranged so that controlled with one finger.

And it turns out: to buy Eclipse Cross, don’t need two million. The top model, as on the test, dealers are giving the worst case for the 1.9 million even without a trade-in (truth, under condition of purchase on credit). It is not surprising that such machines are in steady demand. The most popular — wheel-drive version easier. She does not have a projection display, radar, hatches in the roof and advanced audio, but the subwoofer does not occupy scarce space in the trunk, and the price with discount for trade-in can be down to 1.6 million What alternative to offer? Hardly it will be Toyota CH-R or Peugeot 3008.

Technique Mitsubishi Kirill Vasiliev, Nikita Gudkov

GS platform (front McPherson front, memorycache back) is not new and known as Project Global. In the early 2000s, it was developed by Mitsubishi Motors and DaimlerChrysler, to work closely in those days. Just changing GS, the Americans built her Dodge Caliber, Avenger and Journey, Jeep Compass and Patriot and Chrysler Sebring and 200. And Mitsubishi has developed this “truck” Lancer, Outlander, ASX and now Eclipse Cross.

From the Eclipse new shock absorbers with retuned valves and dampers rebound. Increased rigidity of the rear suspension. There’s a new original sub-frame with a more compliant silent-blocks. The gear ratio of the steering actuator is less than the Outlander crossover. By default, when starting to the rear axle via multi-plate clutch GKN is transmitted 20% thrust.

Reserves handling of the old platform is removed mainly due to the high compared to the Outlander body stiffness. Design is more than 55% of high strength steels. There is a hidden solution like an additional gluing the seams and obvious — for example, three-point strut supports between the pillars. This is the basic equipment of the Eclipse.

Under the hood is a new 1.5 turbo engine with factory index 4B40. Bore and stroke 75 84,8 mm. From aluminum “four” with direct injection, exhaust manifold integrated in the cylinder head and the intake is made of rubber to reduce the weight and terminography. On the inlet and outlet are used shifters. Hollow exhaust valves with the sodium core. The turbo — bypass valve with electronic control. Timetable for external speed characteristics refers to the 163-strong version, and the engines for Russia deportirovali up to 150 HP with the same max torque and accustomed to the use of gasoline AI-92.

Eclipse Cross 1.5 is a new Jatco CVT eighth generation (CVT8) ID JF016E. He V -, whereas the older model JF017E ― klinotsepnym. In comparison with predecessors, they from 6.0 to 7.0 extended power range before the torque Converter is locked, and through a combination of measures, including the use of low-viscosity oil, 40% reduced frictional losses. Changed and hydraulics ― are now eight valves instead of twelve, more compact pump. It is the hydraulic system, not an electrician now controls a transmission ratio and reverse gear.

Technique Peugeot

The current Peugeot 3008 is built on the EMP2 modular platform, the Efficient modular platform 2, as the hatchback 308: McPherson strut front, semi beam rear. Compared with the model 308 (for illustration) the wheelbase has increased by 55 mm. For the record, have a seven-seat crossover 5008 it is more even at 165 mm. all-wheel drive and never will be — but will soon have a hybrid option: gasoline engine, eight-speed automatic and an electric motor on each axle. His appearance in Russia is unlikely.

The 1.6 THP turbo engine belongs to the family of Prince, constituted in 2006 by BMW and PSA Group. At first the Quartet, with a double system of variable valve timing and direct injection were headache owners: due to poor design of the cylinder head and, as a consequence, sediments already after 20-30 thousand miles the car lost traction. The engine repeatedly modernized: new cylinder head, timing chain tensioner, oil pump…

Upgraded automatic gearbox Aisin has received a new index EAT6: Efficient Automatic Transmission 6-gear. The Assembly improved torque Converter and electro-hydraulic switching unit, which includes the pump and changed the design of the sealing rings to maintain the working fluid pressure at RPMs close to idle. These measures allowed to increase the limit value of the transmitted torque from 340 to 400 N•m. in addition, the “machine” a new heat exchanger and more rigid attachment of the torque Converter, which should reduce vibration and the risk of overheating.

Technique Toyota

Crossover Toyota C-HR is built on the platform GA-C of architecture TNGA similar to those of the Prius. However, hybrid versions in the Russian market is not expected. Cars for Europe and us are produced in Turkey.

The front and rear faces of independent suspension with stabilizer bars (front ― McPherson, rear ― mnogoryichazhka). Brakes “on a circle” disc (on the rear axle is unvented). All-wheel drive is implemented using a multi-plate clutch to connect the rear wheels from the RAV4, but, unlike his older brother, to lock the clutch manually is impossible.

The body is all steel. In design including the applied to extra high strength steels with tensile strength up to 1500 MPa.

All-wheel drive the C-HR in Russia relies only 115 HP turbocharged engine 8NR-FTS with a compression ratio of 10.0. Despite the small displacement, four cylinder, not three. The company is a CVT with a power range of 6.26, in all modes, simulating a stepped transmission.

Behind the scenes

If it had not been winter… Yes, a snow, with frost in the area of minus ten! On the one hand, then work our photographers would be much easier. On the other ― it is possible that the findings of the test would have been different…

In Russia will sell cars with gasoline atmospherically Skyactiv-G. the basic version 1.5 (120 forces, 153 N•m) with the “mechanics” accelerates to 100 km/h in 11.3 s, but with automatic transmission for 12.4. With two-liter engine (150 HP, 213 N•m) two pedal drive hatchback makes a hundred for 9,3 C.

In July, dealers will begin to place orders for sedans and hatchbacks Mazda 3 fourth generation. Others will be more democratic pyatidverka with the “mechanics” and engine of 1.5 (120 HP), which is only available in the base Drive for the 1.49 million. In the start-up kit includes seven airbags, led headlights, air conditioning, rain sensors and light, multimedia system with a display of 8.8 inches, and even a projection display.
