Audi a4. В России 63% продаж Audi A4 приходится на самую простую переднеприводную версию 35 TFSI с турбомотором 1.4 (150 л.с.) и семиступенчатым «роботом» S tronic. Универсалы спросом не пользуются: за весь прошлый год было продано всего 89 машин, из которых 59 это A4 allroad.

In Russia 63% of sales of Audi A4 is the most simple front-wheel drive version with the 35 TFSI 1.4 turbo (150 HP) and a seven-step “robot” S tronic. Generalists demand not: for the whole of last year sold a total of 89 vehicles, of which 59 this A4 allroad.

The fifth generation Audi A4 was available in the summer of 2015 and this fall in Europe will begin selling the updated family. Looks like has not changed too radically, but almost all exterior panels are new: they left untouched the roof, hood and trunk lid (five door wagon). “Charged” S4 and vehicles with S-line package has found an unusual gap between the front bumper and hood that mimic the intake.

The front headlights are now led, and for a fee available matrix headlights with automatic high beams. The color palette is increased to a dozen due to a new metallic Terra Gray.

The architecture of the interior remains the same, but the A4 went through a major multimedia upgrade: display increased from 8.3 to 10.1 inches diagonally and is touch, so the Germans got rid of the MMI controller on the centre tunnel. As on the older models ( A6 and A7), the screen responds to the tap of clicks, making the experience more tactile. Our database continues to be declared analog instruments, but for a fee you can get a “virtual cockpit” with Full HD resolution and more advanced than before of the restyling, graphics.

In the cabin, a new steering wheel, an expanded selection of finishing materials and added contour lighting.

The machine has learned how to interact with urban infrastructure and, in particular, with traffic lights, giving the driver guidance on the optimal speed for movement in the “green wave”. However, such a feature works, to put it mildly, far not everywhere: now this Ingolstadt and Salzburg, next year will connect Hamburg and Stuttgart, and later catch up with Madrid, London and other European cities.

App myAudi (not available in Russian App Store and Google Play) lets you remotely monitor the state of the machine and a smartphone with Android operating system and all can be used as a key: the car opens and starts, while holding in memory individual settings of 14 users.

Multimedica MIB 3 at the stuffing similar to the one that will appear on the updated Passat, but the interface of your Audi. “Charged” S4 got extra skin dashboard with special graphics. Instead of the touchpad with the controller on the tunnel now box of stuff.

Chassis remained the same, but the line of power units shook up. Six engines of the eight received moderate hybrid encumbrance: all two-litre petrol turbo (150, 190 and 245 HP) and a pair of diesels of the same volume (136 and 163 HP) equipped with 12-volt starter-generator with a belt drive. Bezlimitnyj remained only modification 40 TDI (2.0, 190) and 45 TDI (3.0, 231 HP).

The Audi S4 is the body pattern of the grille. But the main thing — stuffing: company 354-HP V6 3.0 TFSI amounted to a three-liter diesel combined with turbocharging (pictured), the return of which is 347 HP and 700 N•m.

And here is the Audi S4 the filling is interesting: contrary to disilicate sedans and wagons got the powertrain of the crossover SQ5 headed diesel V6 3.0 where is the turbo combined with an electric compressor. The last together with the starter-generator is served by a 48-volt network with a separate lithium-ion battery in the trunk. Hundred from the place of this “s” model does in 4.8 seconds is only 0.1 worse than the old S4 with a gasoline 3.0 TFSI (354 HP), which will remain in service, but only outside Europe.

Sedans and station wagons, including a raised A4 allroad, will appear in Russia in early 2019. Powerful “Asok” we have never had. But in Russia, sold more sport-wagon RS4, which has not yet had time to be updated.

Russia’s choices will be limited. It’s safe to say that there will be petrol front-wheel-drive sedans and station wagons A4 35 TSI (1.4, 150 HP), 40 TFSI and A4 (2.0, 190) and A4 45 TFSI quattro (2.0, 249 HP). A raised A4 allroad quattro will be strictly “forty-five”. Diesels still open to question. Last year’s sales, the Quartet of Audi with a score of 2164 machines lost and the”three rubles” BMW (4250), and Mercedes “cesca” (2648), and three months of this year, the gap with the C-class grew: for sale only 355 A4 sedans (station wagons do not make the weather) vs 956 Mercedes. The third series in that time have found 1259 the buyer.

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.

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.
