H ■ to economize on fuel and preserve the environment, just follow the simple guidelines:

  1. Avoid quick acceleration and sudden start

Smooth driving increases fuel efficiency. Acceleration at 20 km/h in 5 seconds, increases the reserve is approximately 11 km away. in addition, rapid acceleration and braking lead to significant tire wear — this reduces their effectiveness and leads to increased fuel consumption.

  1. Watch for vehicle weight

Every 100 kg of cargo in the trunk of a midsize sedan can reduce fuel efficiency by 6%. In addition, it significantly affects aerodynamic drag. For example, when installing the roof rack fuel consumption may rise to 20%.

  1. Turn off the engine at stops and stations

If the engine idling more than a minute, it consumes fuel more than is required to run it. In 10 minutes the vehicle spends 130 ml of fuel.

  1. Maintain recommended tire pressure

If the car is driven with a tyre pressure of 50 kPa less than the recommended pressure, fuel consumption in the city may rise to 6%, and on track to 4%.

  1. Choose tires based on conditions and manufacturer’s recommendations

Remember that the wider the tire, the more rolling resistance it causes, which leads to increased fuel consumption. If you do not plan to use your SUV on rough terrain, do not install on a car tire “off-road” tread pattern. Similar tyres on normal roads much wear and increase fuel consumption.

  1. When selecting tires, pay attention to the energy efficiency class

Did you know that the right choice of tyres can reduce fuel consumption by 20%? Choice of fuel-efficient tyres will allow to pass more on one filling and to reduce CO2 emissions by half. On the energy efficiency class of the bus you can learn from special labels, which are marked with new tires. Fuel efficiency is rated on a 7-point scale: from “A” (maximum efficiency) to G (minimum efficiency).

The distinction between class “A” and “G” may indicate a difference in fuel consumption to 7.5%. To put it in absolute terms, the use of tyres of a class “A” instead of tyres of a class “G” will save more than 6 liters per thousand kilometers.

5 simple tips on how to stay on a wet road

Nesmotrya that the “charged” hatchback Hyundai i30 N is a newcomer in the segment, he managed to find his followers and began to push on the market competitors in the face of the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Ford Focus ST and Honda Civic Type R.

However, tuners Atelier RaceChip from the German city of Göppingen, decided to complicate their lives even more. Recall that in the top Performance version of the two-liter “turboservice” Hyundai i30 N produces 271 HP and 353 Nm of torque. Due to chip-tuning managed to increase these parameters to 309 forces and 498 Nm. However, this tuner was not enough – thanks to the modernization of distribution pipe HJS exhaust system? returns raised to the final 316 HP and 524 Nm of torque.

In addition to the upgrade of the power unit Korean hot hatch received instead of stock wheels set of cast Iskov OZ Racing Leggera HLT, wearing the tires Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, as well as new springs, reducing the ride height by 15 mm and a set of sway bars from Eibach.

In the explanation of the video in his YouTube channel, Studio RaceChip announced similar improvements for the new Veloster N.

Rdevelopment took place with a modern DB5 will be engaged in Department Q, responsible for the creation of special versions of Aston Martin models. In its design and technical characteristics of the car will be as close as possible to the original machine.

New, built in collaboration with film company, EON Productions, will be painted in silver shade, Silver Birch, original car from the movie and will receive a set of “spy” gadgets, in particular, the rotating rooms.

The Assembly will be established at the plant in Newport Pagnell — the home of the original DB5, where in the years 1963-1965 were released 1059 copies of the original model. In addition to the 25 cars to be offered for sale at a price of 2.75 million pounds, the British the British will collect another three instances of the DB5. One company keep, the second will give the Studio Eon Productions (which owns the rights to the franchise), and the third will be sold at a charity auction. According to preliminary information, the first DB5 delivery to customers will begin in 2020. The machine will be exclusively a collector’s item, as it cannot be operated on public roads.

“The James bond car, assembled in the same factory and by the same standards that the original dream of many collectors. We will make this fantasy a reality for 25 very lucky customers,” said CEO Andy Palmer.

The Aston Martin DB5 was the first car of James bond and starred in a total of seven films about “agent 007”: “Goldfinger” (1964), “Thunderball” (1965), Goldeneye (1995), “Tomorrow never dies” (1997), “Casino Royale (2006), “007: Coordinates “Skyfall” (2012), “007: spectre” (2015).

N > we recall that the new “SUV” Geely has not yet even export the names (unless you use internal index SX11), and in China will be sold under the name Binyue (Bingu is welcome).

From the standard SX11, declassified in early August, the Sport version is characterized by a design of the radiator grille, painted black emblem, a pair of twin exhaust pipes and large rear spoiler. Note also the black roof and exterior mirror housings. In the cabin version under “sports” and changed the color scheme of the virtual “tidy” on the orange and the front panel is finished in dark Burgundy “leather” instead of regular brown. Appeared on the steering wheel paddle shifters shift.

About motor Binyue/SX11 Sport Geely still do not say anything, but most likely it will be the same as the standard crossover petrol “turbotron” volume of half a liter developed with Volvo impact 177 HP (255 Nm). Paired with double clutch seven-speed “robot”, the machine will dial the first “hundred” for 7,9 seconds.

Public premiere of the new model Geely has not yet taken place, a full presentation of the Geely Binyue/SX11 is scheduled for August 22.

Ands 11 million diesel vehicles from Volkswagen that should be perezimovali in favor of environmental regulations, Europe accounts for about 8.5 million Of them are the owners of 5.5 million cars have already undergone a prescribed procedure, but the remaining 3 million car owners in no hurry to service.

Flashing control unit deprives the car of that for which they were purchased: the combination of low fuel consumption and peppy acceleration dynamics.

And while controlling service of a number of European countries are looking at it through my fingers, by the Federal road office of Germany CPA is developing a mechanism of forced de-registration of vehicles that have not undergone modernization. However, their owners will still be obliged to pay substantial fines. When the innovation is working, it is possible that the part forcibly removed from the car’s registration on it will not go back — they will be able to replenish the fleets in neighbouring developing countries. Recall that Ukraine took the lead in dynamics growth of import of diesel cars from Germany.

At the entrance — the usual UAZ pickup. The output is a six-wheeled monster on the low-pressure tyres, capable of carrying fifteen tons of cargo over the sticky ground. Testing “Behind the wheel” trigonic Yamal T‑64 is not struck in a dirt the person.Homann Maxim “Behind the wheel”

A magical transformation — when an ordinary car suddenly becomes a robot-transformer — occur not only in films and commercials. Such tricks do in Elektrostal near Moscow, on the Assembly production of company Allspecies. Here become real usual UAZ off-road monsters on the low-pressure tyres. Produce biaxial and triaxial machine, with both two-and four-door cabin. Hence, the alphanumeric marking. Tregony, about which speech will go, is called a T‑64. That is, the wheels — six doors — four.

The transformation

It all starts with the purchase of a serial pickup UAZ Patriot authorized dealer. Dismantle the cargo Bay, remove the bridges. Standard frame extend and reinforce the mounting points and suspension assemblies.

Gear bridges — “hybrid” because it is used as a private development company under the wheels of large diameter, and the other nodes. The main pair with a gear ratio of 2.78 from military bridge of the Oise, bearings and seals imported, and all the gear and wheel motors borrowed from the MTZ. Your axle, do the weld, and the sleeves of bridges made of very thick oil pipe. Bridges are slow, but the Yamal speed and not needed.

Front set spring firm “Fobos”, providing a lift of the suspension by 50 mm, and used rear heavy duty leaf springs from GAZelle, which holds a special screed. The design turned out very stiff, so the pull of Panara, which was put on the first instances, refused. But wazowski dampers left on them still nobody complained. Experimented with the nodes from GAZ‑66, but while it was not allowed.

Yamal height of almost 2.5 meters. But dry figures do not convey all the greatness of this machine.Yamal height of almost 2.5 meters. But dry figures do not convey all the greatness of this machine.

Drive axles with a ratio of 10.8 and a private development company. There are more high speed, with gear ratio of 8.7. Final drives use either from Oise (the gear ratio of 1.94), or tractor (3,9). Ground clearance — 650 mm. axles with a ratio of 10.8 and a private development company. There are more high speed, with gear ratio of 8.7.

The so-called balance truck includes a second transfer box — from the BTR‑60, with a ratio of 1.00. She has access to the propeller. Spring — from GAZelle, but reinforced with a large number of sheets.The so-called balance truck includes a second transfer box — from the BTR‑60, with a ratio of 1.00. She has access to the propeller. Spring — from GAZelle, but reinforced with a large number of sheets.

Finally, the most interesting: at the heart of the rear suspension is the so-called beam trolley, connected with bridges using four rods. This is a special pride of the founders, she even obtained a patent. The truck has more traction — it keeps the transfer case from the BTR‑60. Box is not rigidly fixed to the frame, and swinging together with bridges. Thanks to this move gimbal small, 15 mm, and they don’t fall out of the slots. Small karmanchiki unique, they are also made to order. All this for the sake of increasing the suspension stroke, which reaches 300 mm! So the wheel is extremely difficult even on the most treacherous gully.

Yamal shod in tires of the company Trecol (ZR, No. 6, 2018): dimension 1350×700 R21, the tire pressure on the ground 0,18–0,25 kg/cm2 (pressure, produced a man — of 0.35 kgf/cm2). If the ATV will pass the leg, not crushed. I will experiment did not, but soon became convinced of overdelicate tires: Yamal accidentally moved our station, and she though henna.

To tame the giant

Pulled out into the street again I remember the cinematograph. I remember the heroes of science fiction franchises spend a lot of time to find a common language with giant robots. Here I am slowly getting used to the dimensions of the Yamal Peninsula. Length — more than six meters — almost 2.5 metres, so the regular side mirrors are not enough, they had to be lowered to see small cars. CEO Allspecial Andrew Trosinenko says that citizens still can’t get used to them šestikolesnym machines. No sports car does not attract as much attention.

Length of the driveshaft going from transfer case to second staff from BTR, is huge. To stretch, had to install two outboard bearing.Length of the driveshaft going from transfer case to second staff from BTR, is huge. To stretch, had to install two outboard bearing.

Springs firm “Fobos” is produced in Elektrostal, so the choice of supplier is obvious. Disc brakes all wheels Allspecial makes himself.Springs firm “Fobos” is produced in Elektrostal, so the choice of supplier is obvious. Disc brakes all wheels Allspecial makes himself.

At the gas station pour the diesel fuel in both tanks: all as on the Patriot. In the future, the Rover will install the extra tank 100 liters — between the cab and cargo platform. Questions about the fuel consumption, the engineers answered evasively — a pier, depends on the conditions of work.

They looked under the hood. There is a 2.2‑liter diesel engine ZMZ‑51432 capacity of 113.5 HP Are shestiklassniki popular in the North, where the engines on heavy fuel is preferred. But still in the range has a petrol engine ZMZ‑409 (128 HP).

Going fast around 50 km/h And still have the feeling that the Yamal hard. It is not his element, with all my guts the car rejects the asphalt.

On large potholes, which the owners of the “cushion” of SUVs diligent circle, Yamal, only rocks. Finally, out in the field and vented the pressure in the tire to road ground 0.5 to 0.3 ATM. Tires are designed for a minimum of 0.2 ATM for the wetland. Tap or button in the cockpit to poison the air from all the wheels, no. As well as automatic paging. It can be set at 100,000 rubles. In the middle lane, this system makes life easier. But in the North, capricious climate and daily temperature drop to twenty degrees, the inside of the tubing of a pumping system of the condensate drops and this often leads to rupture of the tubes.

Composite wings wide, reinforced. It is possible even to walk. Length of loading platform side — 3280 mm, width — 1940 mm. Yamal is able to move away from public roads to the cab and body a team of 10-12 people and take on Board equipment. There are cars with body tank — 1500 litres, kung or drilling rig. The machine can easily go down with a 40 percent slope without much difficulty to climb on them.Composite wings wide, reinforced. It is possible even to walk.

There are cars with body tank — 1500 litres, kung or drilling rig. The machine can easily go down with a 40 percent slope without much difficulty to climb on them.

The marsh test

Interior — standard patriotiski. Transmission controls the usual rotating washer. Turned once — connected front axle, turned the still — included a reduced number of transmissions. And let’s not be fooled by the labels 2H, 4H, 4L. Three axles, and underbody transfer case has two — regular and BTR‑60 are connected by a cardan. The developers decided that the fewer buttons and levers the better. I agree: put the throttle and went through the fields!

Food is not faster 30 km/h So the ride is noticeably softer and the wheel work easier. Regular steering shaft was changed to the hydrostatic steering as on construction equipment, it facilitates the rotation of the huge wheels. And anyway I know a friend of a Patriot. The tactic is the same: to set the direction and not to hinder the machine to go. The turning radius is great, because we need to unfold in several stages.

Successfully passing the field crawled to a stream with gently sloping entry and a steep opposite Bank. Yamal not to scare the Ford meter depth or the trench width of five feet. Especially since all bridges — limited slip differentials with the degree of blocking is 75%. Before experimented, put samoloty in two bridges of the three, but now they are involved in all three axes of all the machines is the essential solution.

The first time ferry failed — the rise was too steep. On the second try Yamal, desperately skidding dug high step, further complicating the task. Take a little to the right — there is a deeper, but more gentle departure, and I’m doing it. In the following, almost 45‑percent rise the car up as something very easy. All because none of the six wheels never left the ground. If the car pulls to the ground. The impression that planting Yamal can only be stupidity. That is what that day I did.

Put it in the swamp, not bleed the pressure to 0.2 ATM. Believing in their impunity, and the car sat on the drive axle. Well, in the basic equipment includes electric hoist. “Anchored” behind a tree, and the Patriot himself pulled out — that’s all.

In General, the suburbs all-terrain vehicle I’m not scared. This technique works, as you might guess, on the Yamal Peninsula and in the Arctic, in the far East. Wherever you need high throughput and the ability to carry on viscous soil up to one and a half tons of cargo. The main buyers of the oil, energy, gas, communications.

To date, more than 50 shestiklasnikov. Yamal is the T‑64 four million rubles. The car is serviced wazowski dealers, repair issues, either. The main thing — the availability of a large workshop to shestiklassnik was able to stop off there.

Tumbleweed

Allspecial produces two-axle vehicles on the basis of the same pickup UAZ Patriot. Off-road capabilities of these machines is much lower than the triaxial. Limited-slip differential is there just in front, and a fierce off-road machine not agree well. The main buyers of farms. Spraying fertilizers on field aircraft they expensive, conventional SUV on muddy field will not pass, and Yamal is an easy walk. The load capacity of the vehicle is 800 kg on solid ground or 650 kg for non-cohesive. That is, he is willing to take on Board the fertilizer spreader or sprayer. Dimensions dluhonice (5300 × 2540 × 2670 mm) allow it to move and on the asphalt roads. The main competitor — the company “Trekol” and its model 39041 agro on the basis of azovskogo hunter.

Sales model, which gives the name to a whole class of cars were stopped in Russia two years ago. Hatchback sold worse than super cars because Volkswagen has decided not to spend money on it support in our country.

However, in September of this year, the car will re-appear at the Russian dealers, said “driving” a spokesman of the brand in Russia Andrey Gordasevich. However, any sales by the Volkswagen not even counting: the VW Golf needs to maintain the image of the brand.

For example, a person coming into dealer showrooms to look at the VW Golf and buy a VW Tiguan crossover. And this comparison is not accidental: according to “za rulem”, the price of Volkswagen Golf in our country will start with a mark of 1.43 million.

In Russia Volkswagen Golf will be sold exclusively with a 1.4-liter turbo engine capacity of 125 and 150 HP with a robotic gearbox DSG. Specifications for our market four: Comfortline, Highline, R-Line and Highline.

The basic version comes with six airbags, climate control, mirrors electric and heated, heated front seats, fog lamps and “avtoparkovka”. The top version, and it will cost about 1.7 million rubles will get led headlights and taillights, 17-inch alloy wheels, a virtual dashboard, tinted rear glass and more. The Highline version is the only one that will be available with a 150-horsepower engine.

The car was sinking and the owners were forced to leave them, because strong streams of water literally took the cars.Pole Matthew Specialist

The rain passed in the night from Saturday to Sunday and caused severe flooding on the streets Antonovich, Kazimir Malevich and Elladee. And in some places the cars just went under the water, and their owners had to be rescued himself as the strong streams of water literally took the cars.

The municipal authorities on the example of Russian mayors blamed the rain, which allegedly was the strongest for almost the last hundred years. However, locals and the media say that the cause of the flooding was “a decade of violation of urban planning norms,” and the rain was not so strong and lasted about an hour.
