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.

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.

Model Overall rating Protection of adult passengers The protection of children Pedestrian protection Security
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.
