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.

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.

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.

The latest reforms would be enough to change generations. Thanks to the new platform PTA the SUV has grown in all directions. Changed the design, improved equipment, increased comfort and safety, expanded multimedia capabilities. Payback — the highest prices in the segment.

Crossover Land Rover Discovery Sport after a deep restyling arrived in Russia without a front-modification of the hybrid system and “mechanics”.

Ceiling for the execution P200 — 3 698 000.

Media system InControl Touch Pro with a screen diagonal of 10.25 inches — standard equipment, and digital clean-up of 12.3 inch option 49 800. The fee for the third row — 80 500. The projection display will take 70 700, Pro-Navigator — 139 500 leather from 106 to 400 302 200.

Diesel Sports have the following price ranges: D150 — 2 939 000 3 707 000 (from Ewok 941 894 2 000-3 000), D180 — 3 038 000 to 4 082 000 (3 042 000-4 637 000). Top model P250 stretches from 3 128 000 to 4 144 000 (3 130 000-4 694 000). Don’t forget about the fee for body color. “Metallic” will cost 59 500, “premium metallic” will rise to 88 700.

volvo xc90

Volvo xc90. Бронированные кроссоверы и внедорожники в новостях попадаются не столь часто, как седаны или лимузины. А данный пример тем более интересен, поскольку марка Volvo редко отмечается в этой сфере — в сравнении, скажем, с «немцами».

Armored crossovers and SUVs in the news across not as often as sedans or limousines. And this example is especially interesting because the Volvo brand rarely achieved in this field, in comparison with, say, “Germans.”

Letters VR8 accompanying description of crossover Volvo XC90 Armoured, is not the type eight-cylinder motor and protection class standard VPAM BRV 2009/ERV 2010, which means countering the bullets of 7.62 armor-piercing core, and the resistance to detonation of 15 kg of TNT at two meters from the side at a height of one meter.

To protect the inhabitants of the used armor plates from high strength steel with a thickness of 10 mm and bullet-proof glass thickness of 50 mm.

Based version of Armoured equipment on the T6 AWD Inscription, which, due to the protection components up to approximately 1.4 t gross vehicle weight (with five passengers) went up to 4490 kg, which demanded enhanced suspension and brakes. Directly installing the armor deals with the German company TRASCO Bremen GmbH receiving the workpiece from Torslanda.

Orders for heavy Armoured XC90 Swedes are already taking, and the first deliveries will begin at the end of this year.

Volvo also announced the development of a lighter version of the XC90 is protected and armored crossover XC60, which in comparison with the original machines without protection would be heavier only to 250 lbs. And heavy if the above model is mainly designed for dignitaries, the other two are aimed at a wider audience including the private owners, and the diplomatic corps, and the police. More light armored Volvo will be the final fine-tuning in Brazil, and sell since beginning 2020 they will be both in Europe and in Latin America. Let’s add, that recently was presented to the serial drone XC90.

Compare the size with a hatchback Ceed. Length 4395 mm (+85), width — 1826 (+26), height — 1483 (+36) wheelbase — 2650 mm (parity). The front overhang has grown by 25 mm (905), rear 60 (840 mm). Clearance varies 174-184 mm (Sid 150).

In August, pseudoclosure Kia XCeed will be produced in Slovak Zilina along with other Seeders. In the third quarter of this year, the cross-hatch will appear on the European market, but the launch in Russia is open to question. Meanwhile, XCeed should be in the lineup a step below model Sportage. The rookie is built on the same platform as the K2, that and Ceed (McPherson strut plus memorycache), but varies with the family technical.

Alas, to be all-wheel drive XCeed can not. But in its front suspension shock absorbers are installed inside the hydraulic end buffers. A new dynamic damper to the rear cross member minimizes road noise and vibration. The springs though are longer sidovsky due to increased clearance, mitigated by a 7% front and 4% rear. Control unit electric power steering got other settings. From body panels in common with the led are only front doors.

The boot capacity is 426-1378 l vs sidovsky 395-1291. Loading height in favor of the design is increased by 60 mm. Dimension of tyre: standard — 205/60 R16, option — 235/45 R18. There are 12 body colours, including the exclusive Quantum ICSID yellow Yellow (pictured).

Initial XCeed is equipped with petrol Turbotronic 1.0 T-GDi (120 HP, 172 N•m) and six-speed “mechanics”, which is friends with all the other motors. It turbochetverki 1.4 T-GDi (140 HP, 242 N•m) and 1.6 T-GDi (204 HP, 265 N•m) and 1.6 CRDi turbodiesel Smartstream in two versions: 115 HP, 280-300 nm and 136 HP, 280-320 nm. Maximum thrust it produces with semidiapazonnym “robot”. Other automatic boxes there.

Landing in Inside by 42 mm higher than the side. Virtual tidy Supervision diagonal of 12.3 inches — optional. “Database” is an analogue set with a monochrome screen (3.8 inch) or TFT colour display (4.2 inches). In the center stands the touchscreen by 10.25.

All brakes — ventilated disc. System Drive Mode Select offers Normal and Sport modes, changing the response of the power unit and the steering force. The security complex includes auto brake, dead zones and markings, automatic headlights and so on. With a quick XCeed (1.6 T-GDi) sprints to hundred in 7.5 s, the slowest (1.0 T-GDi) needs to 11.3. Higher maximum speed — 220 km/h.
