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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Honda cr-v,Honda cr-v hybrid. Главное изменение во внешности — новые бамперы с хромированными загогулинами. Чёрный пластик «съел» нижнюю часть передка, ранее окрашенную в цвет кузова. Противотуманки у негибрида теперь круглые, а CR-V Hybrid использует планки с пятью светодиодами.

The main change in appearance — new bumpers with chrome flourishes. Black plastic “ate” the lower part of the front, previously painted in body color. Fog lights have a non-hybrid now round, and CR-V Hybrid uses a strap with five LEDs.

Restyling not be called ambitious, but its results are important for us because the Honda CR-V comes in Russia from its plant in East liberty, Ohio. The exterior design has been updated just enough to see a reformed SUV cannot be confused with the former. From the engine range was eliminated aspirated 2.4 (187 HP, 244 N•m) and the underlying engine is assigned turboservice 1.5 (193 HP, 243 N•m) with a CVT. The hype was supposed to call is already available in Europe CR-V Hybrid, which the Americans will be able to buy in early 2020. The hybrid setup includes a two-litre engine (145 HP, 175 N•m) playing the role of a generator, and traction motor (184 HP). The sum comes out to 215 HP and 315 N•m with all-wheel drive (the other in the United States is not).

Recycled rear bumper look new chrome trims on the exhaust pipes in the form of a trapezoid (was round). The lights are the same but tinted. The cross-member below the rear window is now in dark chrome. Implemented additional options wheels 18 and 19 inches, and three body colors: blue, Aegean Blue, red Radiant Red and grey Sonic Grey Pearl.

In the cabin of the hybrid (pictured) instead of a gear lever appeared, a push-button selector. The display on the tidy talks about the state of the power plant. Meanwhile, the usual CR-V only got wireless charging for smartphones on the Central tunnel. Over it added a pair of USB ports.

The set of security systems and driver assistance Honda Sensing, formerly in second complete set EX, now there is a “base” for all versions. That is, adaptive cruise control, auto brake, monitoring of marking and dead zones to not need to pay extra. The updated CR-V will appear at U.S. dealers in October, and in the production of the hybrid at the plant in Greensburg, Indiana, Honda is investing $4.2 million and will create 34 new jobs. Note that in August, Americans bought 44 235 SUV CR-V is the best monthly figure in the last five years. In 2018, were sold 379 013 machines.

Giant BMW X7 M60i customers will appreciate the engine V12

Bmw x7. Пока самые мощные и динамичные версии «икс-седьмого» зовутся X7 M50i (V8 4.4, 530 л.с., 750 Н•м, разгон до сотни за 4,7 с) и X7 M50d (R6 3.0, 400 л.с., 760 Н•м, 5,4 c).

While the most powerful and dynamic version of “x-seventh” are called X7 M50i (4.4 V8, 530 HP, 750 N•m, acceleration to hundred in 4.7 s) and X7 M50d (R6 3.0, 400 HP, 760 N•m, and 5.4 c).

The model BMW X7, apparently, will appear and the top specification with twelve-cylinder motor. This is indirectly evidenced by the opening of the user jokinawa, a member of the Bimmerpost community. He dug around in the “brains” of the crossover X7 40i and found in his memory the logo… X7 M60i, which even brought on a digital clean-up.

The company officially says nothing, while harvesting of the logo for future top-end modification is obvious.

If you take into account the sedan BMW M760Li, expect on the most expensive “x-seventh” motor V12 6.6 (N74B66) with two turbochargers. On the sedan its impact amounted to 610 HP and 800 N•m to restyling and 585 HP and 850 N•m after the upgrade. In the crossover, of course, numbers may vary. In any case, if X7 M60i really get a twelve-unit, then such a machine can wait to improve the dynamics of dispersal to hundred places about 0.2-0.3 (up to 4.4-4.5), compared to the version of the M50i. By the way, something of their own based on “x-seventh” prepares the company Alpina.

Not the first time a “random” teasers of future models appear on primorko or Central screens production cars. So, in July in a multimedia system crossover Acura RDX was found image of the sedan TLX second generation, and recently in pictures on the display of electric cars Volkswagen ID.3 emerged the figure of the future of Golf VIII. New Land Rover Defender until its premiere lit up on the collection tubes prototype.

Next to the new production centre in Bridgend, while existing only for rendering, is the Ford plant which should be closed by September 2020. The street will be 1700 skilled workers, and Ineos will be employed.

Firm Ineos Automotive decided on the platform on which will be the “world’s best SUV” Grenadier (name confirmed for the production model). By 2021, the factory will be opened in the district of Bridgend County Wales. Investment in a new “factory” will be 600 million pounds ($748,5 million). In the first phase, the staff will include 200 people, and in the long term the number will grow to 500 employees.

Recall that Jim Ratcliffe, who Bloomberg calls “the richest man in the UK” with a fortune of $19 billion, intends to build “the most uncompromising polnoprivodniki.” with an aluminum body on a steel ladder-type frame and accessories BMW. Design of pyatidverny will be “square”, and the interior is Spartan. The name Grenadier is taken from the London pub where the idea was born.

The plant capacity immediately, but will reach 25 000 cars per year. Two-thirds of pre-assembled machines are likely to spread in Europe and the United States, and the rest is on Asia, Africa and so on.

In parallel, Ineos will Fund the Portuguese factory in the city There, where the decision to establish an Assembly body and chassis Grenadier. Petrol and diesel engines from the BMW TwinPower Turbo should ship from the factory in Austria. So the enterprise in Bridgend will only “marry” came from other countries components. Coming Brexit doesn’t bother Ineos: “Barriers will be overcome, or we will catch them,” says the chemical giant. On the question of the “second” Defender, the alternative which will be the Grenadier, the team says: “the New Defender is playing on another field. And what we do, a little utilitarian”.
