The concept debuted in January 2015 at the Detroit motor show with a 2.0 turbo (193 HP, 407 N•m) and all-wheel drive. The full name of the show Cara Santa Cruz Crossover Truck Concept. Ever since the Koreans don’t call it a pickup truck and a crossover.

American office officially announced Hyundai: model : Santa Cruz in 2021 will be produced at the HMMA plant in Montgomery, Alabama. Specially for it will have to expand the workshops of stamping, welding and Assembly, spending $410 million Appears two hundred direct jobs and thousands of “indirect” (from local suppliers and logistics companies). As HMMA produces the Sonata, Elantra and Santa Fe, it is likely that Santa Cruz will be unified with the Santa Fe (previously the donor was considered Tucson).

Accustomed to a frame trucks Americans can’t make a compact pickup with a monocoque body, so Hyundai is trying to Santa Cruz as a glamorous urban crossover. If the room will be a clone of the KIA will not keep itself waiting.

Instead of the word “pickup” Hyundai uses the term CUV (compact utility vehicle), explaining that Santa Cruz is “crossover, which creates a whole new segment.” Thus, the Koreans seem to make it clear that it is not ready to compete with these pickups, Ford, GM and Toyota. They say, we will build a traditional SUV, but with a cargo platform. The Volkswagen group says about the same.

Firm founded and run by Bashar Ajlani, which, as it turned out, is an automobile (and not only) designer that are marked by different awards in the UAE. But it seems that outside the country few have heard of. Bashar calls his idol Horatio Pagani.

A young company Ajlani Motors from Dubai has introduced on the home showroom promised hypercar. However, initially it was assumed that his name shall be called Dragon. The dragon is even depicted on branding. And the motto on the website of the manufacturer selected the appropriate: “the design in our DNA and performance in our hearts born of dragons”. But in the end, the coupe received a synthetic name Drakuma, combining dragons and demons.

The website of the company offers only computer renderings hypercar, however, outsiders pictures from the car show in Dubai prove that Drakuma really built in PCM were analyzed.

To all the”exorcists” is there to apply early coupe Fenyr (its name is derived from the Fenrir/Fenrir is a giant wolf from Norse mythology) can sleep peacefully, and “the devil” is also to worry about a competitor early, for Dubai shows a design prototype, the project is not yet completed. However, on the show surfaced some new details. So, behind the cockpit in Drakuma will run a V8 engine with two turbochargers, developing more than 1,200 forces.

Neither the full characteristics of the engine, nor its origin, alas, is not disclosed.

Contrary to popular race for “horses” and seconds, the head of Bashar Ajlani says that do not aim to build a hypercar with the most impressive specifications. The corner-allegedly delivered the design and the overall impression of the car.

Although the name of the coupe and Drakuma, yet the theme of the dragon in it in the first place (maybe then the name of the Dragon return?). Door coupe “should open like the wings of a dragon”, the front “jaws” placed a number of designer “canines”, completes the exterior of the elongated pointed tail. At least that is how it sees Ajlani. What symbolizes the red polygonal hole in the center of the stern (above the Central exhaust) is not specified. And although many design details Takumi will still be brought to mind, the company has already identified the circulation of the future wonder — 99 copies.

Model Mazda CX-30 earned the photo under the headline, since scored an amazing 99% for protecting adults (one percentage point higher than doubtless an outstanding security related Mazda 3). This success is emphasized and the experts of the Association.

In regular session of crash tests Euro NCAP was tested model Mazda CX-30, Mercedes-Benz GLB, Ford Explorer and Opel/Vauxhall Corsa. The first three cars are excellent, though details of the tests they have its own characteristics, but the Course testers have awarded only four stars, as tested in October related to hatchback Peugeot 208, noting, however, that to the five star rating of the Corsa lacked quite a bit.

For frontal impact with partial overlap model CX-30 was 7.8 points out of a possible eight, the impact with rigid barrier with full overlap brought to the Treasury machine maximum eight points (a rarity in these times), side impact estimated at 16 points out of 16 possible (and this is rare), and protection from whiplash — 1.8 points out of a potential two.

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 middle of the side impact column, 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
Mazda CX-30 99% 86% 80% 77%

We have said that five stars in one case is not always equal to five stars in another machine. But the crossover CX-30 is a good surprise: almost all sites on the mannequins in all types of testing conditional green painted. Yellow (adequate protection) and the right lower leg of the driver and left the passenger. Dummies children increased load on the neck in a frontal impact. That’s about it. The hood is conditionally green, auxiliary electronics works well, and only a test of automatic braking in front of pedestrians at night-time passed with the observations, although day everything is fine.

SUV Mercedes-Benz GLB earned 7.4 points for the frontal crash test overlap, 7.2 points — with full overlap, 1.6 points for the headrests and 14.9 for the two side impact in the amount of (out of 16 possible). In the latter case, the car failed post, “painting” the chest of the dummy in orange (slight protection).

Model Overall rating Protection of adult passengers The protection of children Pedestrian protection Security
Mercedes-Benz GLB 92% 88% 78% 74%

Mercedes GLB five stars turned out differently. Yellow areas loads on mannequins more than the Mazda, but numerous tests of electronics rose to the occasion (automatic braking in the city and on the highway, and in several scenarios, obstacles, response to pedestrians and cyclists). Nice to mention “green”, that is, the maximum grade for braking before the “pedestrian night”. A pedestrian is lucky, because a front edge of the hood from GLB too hard (red color on the test). From the driver assistance failed only hold in the band: orange probation assessment.

Model Ford Explorer, curiously, was tested in the modification Plug-in Hybrid. Scores in crash tests was not the highest: a frontal attack with a partial overlap of 6.2, with a full frontal overlap and 7.6, head restraints — 1,6, two side crash test of 14.2.

Model Overall rating Protection of adult passengers The protection of children Pedestrian protection Security
Ford Explorer 87% 86% 61% 76%

From Internet Explorer on all the mannequins in the amount of all types of tests showed seven orange spots and three yellow. But still on points, the car pulled to five stars. The body is strong, “red” and “brown” loads there, and the additional electronics in most of the tests works fine. That’s just crossing the road biker Explorer sees poorly. But a car is recommended for parents with children in two tests (frontal and side impact) two dummy children (six and ten years), exclusively painted green, that brought the model in this section, 24 points from 24 possible. The percentage rating for the protection of children (in the table) was reduced only because you can’t install seats with ISOFIX and even some types on individual items in the cabin.

Hatchback Corsa received 7.7 points out of eight in the frontal crash test overlap; 7,6 — with full and two side-impact — 15,5 decent. But the protection against whiplash injury (head restraints) appreciated by just 1.1 points. The front seats such protection is insignificant (orange rating), and on the second row altogether bad (red mark).

Model Overall rating Protection of adult passengers The protection of children Pedestrian protection Security
Opel Corsa 84% 86% 66% 69%

In Kors, it is better not to experience blow back. Passengers on the second row there is a decent risk of damaging the neck. Maybe this feature is not enabled Corse to pull a total of five stars. Although the program experts Euro NCAP say that the thing Opel did not have enough points, electronic security system. Indeed, automatic braking in front of another car on the highway — conditionally yellow; braking in front a pedestrian crossing in the night, covered in orange, the day adult pedestrians automation are clear, but the child running from behind a parked on the roadside car, Kors almost did not see. Inside the hatch the children feel comfortable: in all the tests, their mannequins were conventionally stained in green. As in the case of Ford, the assessment of “for the children”, expressed in percent, was reduced due to the inability to install some types of child seats on some positions in the cabin.
