“Driving” likes to spend the people’s test drives: the participants are usually open mind and frankness of speech. Trains in the new Chinese crossover Geely Atlas, readers will find both pluses and minuses. The latter, however, was less!“Behind the wheel”

+ Appearance

On the design of Geely Atlas worked with an international team consisting of American, Chinese, Spanish, and Swedish experts. Therefore, the form of the new crossover can be detected, a number of European features. Pleasant surprises were the vehicle’s dimensions, especially width and 18-inch wheels.

Mirror

The side mirrors are controlled by electric, equipped with repeaters of turns, they can be heated and automatically folded in. However, according to some participants of the test drive, the mirrors show too much information, distracting the driver’s attention.

+ Multimedia

7-inch display syncs with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, for the Chinese car rare. Navigation goes from Yandex. From him and the voice assistant Alice, in a funny conversation with her you can spend some time in traffic jams. The management functionality is performed by using the touch screen and buttons on the steering wheel.

Wheel

In town the steering wheel should have a sharp enough response to to to maneuver in the stream or on the streets. The thick steering wheel is comfortable to girth. Button is the cruise control located under the left hand is a convenient solution.

— The shifting levers

The design of their questions, they are also overloaded with information and when using need getting used to. Associated screen driver unintuitive and makes it difficult to navigate menus while driving a car.

+ Turbo engine

The turbocharged engine of 1.8 liters of the second generation ensures excellent performance both in the city and on the highway. Maximum torque is 285 Nm and is achieved at low engine speeds — in the city especially there is a moment of fast acceleration.

— Electronic gas pedal

The pedal takes some getting used to. In “near-zero” zone, she felt bad. Most who participated in the test said that if you feared too harsh start.

+ Spacious back row

In the back row to fit three car seats. Another advantage of the Atlas is an impressive space for passengers ‘ feet. For parents with many children the beauty of this feature is that children can knock the feet on the back of the driver’s seat.

+ The abundance of pockets and niches

Next to the selector KP is a tray closed with a shutter and designed for glasses. In the armrest is a niche with a power pack to recharge the phone. On each side the Central console on the driver side and passenger side has pockets with a USB port. For passengers in the rear row of sockets and the power socket are mounted on a common panel with ventilation holes.

+ All wheel drive

Geely Atlas — the first ever company crossover with all-wheel drive. Prior to this, Chinese automaker produced only front-drive model. Multi-disc clutch NexTrac installed in the Atlas, released by the Americans BorgWarner.

Traffic police: ‘platform’ in driving test will not be

Traffic police on the theoretical exam for obtaining a driver’s license plans to increase the number of tasks that will deal with the basics of safe driving. In the end the theoretical part will consist of seven sections: “the Foundations of security driving,” traffic regulations, “Legislation”, “Medicine”, “Device hardware”, “Psychology”, “Professional block”, said Deputy head of the Department of registration and examination activities of the state traffic Inspectorate Nikolay Gilyaks.

Future drivers in the first place, an essential skill for safe driving, so the test will include new questions on this topic, I will add questions in medicine. Now in tickets 800 tasks, which are divided into 40 tickets, and in the future they will be even more. Change the very procedure of the examination — though exactly how, he explained.

  • Exam location will be no more, although some elements are integrated into the test in the city. “Playground” takes too much time, explained in traffic police, and given the fact that it would still pass at the driving school, to repeat this exam is considered inappropriate. In addition, at the time of the “city” known routes will not, will not and point system. It can be assumed that the abolition of one test will reduce the cost of the entire practical exam.

The most popular crossover in the Russian market in November

Despite the decline in demand for new cars in Russia, Mitsubishi has plans to refresh its product lineup, thereby stimulating the sale of their machines. In 2020, the sale will be two new products from the Japanese automaker, found WP. In addition, the company will continue release of sparsely presented on our car market.

Most anticipated is an updated ASX crossover, which was shown in March 2019 at the motor show in Geneva. The car has a modern, more striking design, led lights, diffusers in the bumpers and large rectangular exhaust pipes. Crossover will be equipped with a new multimedia system with 8-inch display and under the hood, we will probably do 150-strong atmospheric engine capacity of 2 liters. All-wheel drive system will be installed for an additional fee.

The second novelty will be the new SUV Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, whose appearance will be similar with the design of the ASX, as well as with the related utilitarian model L200 pickup truck. Premiere update last summer in Thailand. Now the car will get a digital instrument panel diagonal of 8 inches, a new centre console and the Central tunnel, the climate system and a new joystick mode selection motion. The rest of the SUV has not changed.

It is expected that the updated ASX will be on sale in Russia in the first half of the year, and the updated Pajero Sport — second.

  • In addition, Mitsubishi has continued to open dealerships in Russia, relying on the regions.

New cars are a pipe dream since the market has fallen by 6.4%

Topping the list of most popular crossovers and SUVs in the Russian market, the Korean Hyundai Creta, the prices of which will start in Russia from 957 thousand rubles. So, in November, it was sold 7,273 cars of this model, which is 6.9% more than in the same month last year. With the big separation from it climbed to second place Volkswagen Tiguan — 3718 sold in November vehicles, or 6.6 percent more than last year’s result. By the way, offer such cars in Russia from 1 million 499 rubles.

The three leaders hit the Renault Duster priced from 1 054 990 rubles. Although the popularity has been steadily declining, such vehicles in November were sold 3443 instance — minus 4.8% compared to last year. Kia Sportage preferred by 2942 people: its sales also dipped by 5%, same as the next SUV Lada 4×4. Such vehicles in November parted 2919 pieces. The price tag on Kia Sportage in Russia starts from 1 229 900 rubles, Lada 4×4 can be purchased from 493 900 RUB (three-door).

Toyota RAV4 added 16% — was sold to 2672 of the car. In Russia, the price of this crossover will start from 1 756 000.

The ten most popular also got Skoda Kodiaq, which is sold in the amount of 2553 instance (plus 26.8%, price — 1 457 000), Nissan Qashqai — 2458 pieces (plus 6%, 1086 000), Mitsubishi Outlander — 2334 things (-4,8%, price — 1 823 000) and Hyundai Tucson — car 2152 (+18%), prices for it start at 1 499 000 rubles.

In GK Autospeccentre on request “Behind the wheel” said that the crossovers is still popular among Russians, as evidenced by the indicators sold in the last month of the leader in dynamics of growth of sales of Skoda Kodiaq added 540 vehicles compared to November last year, followed by Hyundai Creta — plus 473 of the car and closes the three Toyota RAV4 —plus 381 physical damage to last year’s result. The popularity of these models is due primarily to the excellent reputation of the automakers. Modern design, excellent technical equipment and adaptation to climatic conditions help to crossovers and SUVs to stay in the top of sales. This trend will continue in the future, especially given the fact that in 2020 the Russian market is replenished with new models.

  • According to the rating of Russian cities according to the supply of cars in Russia on average by a thousand people there are 306 cars.

In theory the factory Vesta, a large and heavy sedan with the engine on the muzzle, on the track no chance against homemade light mid-engine coupe. What about the practice?Alexander Vinogradov “Behind the wheel”

What’s so complicated about that? Welded frame, engine stuck — and you’re done! Something like that I heard not once about fifteen years ago, as a student, MADI, participated in the project Formula Student. Well, it’s not more difficult than to fly in space: you just need to collect the rocket to sit in it and fly.

Creating even a simple racing car with a motorcycle engine is no easy task. What to speak about full-fledged road sports car! But the guys from the racing team BRT (MGTU im. N. E. Bauman) was made.

And this is their second attempt. The previous prototype, the Roadster, had a bunch of issues with ergonomics, and, most importantly, suspension. New car, changing from an open Roadster to the coupe, need to get rid of childhood diseases. View that today Crimea is ready to oppose the factory loaded Sport sedan Lada Vesta.

Theory

Like its predecessor the Roadster, Crimea‑2 built on VAZ aggregates. Engine — 1.6‑liter VAZ‑21127, transmission — manual, five-speed manual (“cable” VAZ‑2181). Part of the suspension components are also borrowed from Viburnum. The rest is from scratch developed by students and graduates of a formula one team Bauman. Layout mid-engine, rear-wheel drive. At the core of Crimea lies a space frame on which are mounted plastic panels; almost all of them remained unchanged, with the exception of bumpers, optics and, of course, the roof.

Behavior on the track quickly gives Vesta to understand what young, even nastlannye, the developers are inferior to the experienced engineers of the automobile plant.Behavior on the track quickly gives Vesta to understand what young, even nastlannye, the developers are inferior to the experienced engineers of the automobile plant.

With the headlights suffer — seal and the body of led optics could not manage to do carefully. Found elegant and efficient decision — toned lights to hide the nuances of a piece of manufacturing. Looks interesting: lenses near and far shrouded led strips turn signals — in the style of the Ticker in the manner of the current models of Audi and Lexus. Just like the first cars, the hood (it is, recall, the back) opens against movement along a complex path, to not touch the bumper. On the implementation of intricate mechanism we fought one week. But most of the time was spent on suspension tuning. Because the expected kinematics from scratch (though was used by Kalinowski elements — the steering knuckles and levers). Calibration of the dampers and the spring rate was also calculated based on weight. All adults!

A nice bonus to that fun-to-drive you can get a great company is still a family sedan.A nice bonus to that fun-to-drive you can get a great company is still a family sedan.

Vesta Sport is also not only body kit and beautiful rims. The main differences from the standard sedan in the art. Redesigned suspension original brakes increased the track, which had to expand the front fenders. Well and boosted to 145 HP engine. In theory a large and heavy sedan with the engine on the muzzle on the track has no chance against the lightweight mid-engine coupe. But in practice?

Practice

To get behind the wheel of the Crimea is not easy. Squeeze into a narrow gap through baggy threshold. To bother creating seats for the “second” of the Crimea did not, took, from BMW of the first series. They’re adjustable-length cushion. The ergonomics are good, but there are problems: pedals offset to the right, and the upper edge of the windshield was too close: I’m height is 173 cm a couple of times knocked her on the head when fastened their seat belts. Left hand running out the door armrest — with rapid rotation of the steering wheel to hit his elbow. And turn the steering wheel will have to actively: here, as in Kalina, three turns from lock to lock.

Despite the promising appearance, Crimea‑2 will not allow you to show off on the track. The suspension needs work, and the stabilization system does not allow them to turn under the gas.Despite the promising appearance, Crimea‑2 will not allow you to show off on the track.

Let the motor button, and behind wakes up tol shestnadcatiletnim. Noisy! But to complain a sin, with a solidly configured issue is only a plus. Squeeze hard on the clutch, and the Crimea confidently takes off. A light car accelerates perfectly — 106‑strong motor VAZ defiantly pulls a small compartment. Transfer included tight, but it’s not annoying. But the stabilization system would cost to reconfigure… or get rid of her at all — all attempts to turn under gas severely suppressed by the electronics. Pull chopped off at the most inopportune moment. But this car was so tempted to go through an arc like a fan, in the power slide. But no — effectively to defeat a bunch of turns on the brink (and maybe over it) of tire adhesion will not work.

The main source of fresh air for the engine large “gills” ahead of the rear axle. In the course of their efficiency enough, but after a few minutes without movement, the motor starts to overheat.The main source of fresh air for the engine large “gills” ahead of the rear axle.

Well, God bless her, with electronics, is not the main problem. The chassis was better, but before the end of lessons not learned! Crimea is well on the arc, he has excellent weight distribution along the axes, but under the gas discharge compartment seeks to turn across the road. The same story with a sharp berestivka: the car lurches unpleasantly diagonally, along the way, put the rear axle. And when you care to right this effect is noticeable. Need to work on alignment and is likely to bring the kinematics. Because the car is designed for everyday driving, and such behavior can be dangerous.

It’s more like a storage compartment than in the trunk. Nothing but a small bag, does not fit. Mid-engine layout!It’s more like a storage compartment than in the trunk. Nothing but a small bag, does not fit. Mid-engine layout!

In the depths of space frame — a standard engine VAZ‑21127, is located across the front of the rear axle.

That’s the difference between University bureaus and automobile plant! The seat of the West Sport a little worse than the Crimea – there is not enough adjustment of the cushion length. But the basic ergonomics issues there. Relative position of the seat, steering wheel and pedals right. The force on the lever and pedals less. Handlebars shorter — two and a half turns. Yes, West is possible and necessary “dopilivat”: bundle motor and box is not perfect. The engine doesn’t like low revs, but the gearbox really want to add a sixth tier. Stabilization system is not switched off after 55 km/h and the treacherous comes in the middle of the turn.

And yet the difference between the chassis is enormous. Fret is very sensitive to the wheel with no delay or hesitation, everything is clear and to the point. You can safely build up speed on the arc without fear of surprises. In open bust speed Sport expected Vesta slides out and falls into the drift under the discharge gas. Here it is, a properly loaded vehicle.

Exam

Lada illustrates the advantages of factory car before prototype. Should we blame the creators of the Crimea? In any case! The boys themselves understand that it is impossible to build a good car, especially of this class. With the “second” of Crimea, it became obvious that attempts to create an affordable sports car on the chassis Kalinowski, the leading ancestry as much from “eight”, is a dead end. Next car will be used aggregates of Vesta. But it is not important.

The project will be sent to all the leading teams of the Formula Student, in the first place MADI and MAMI, is that students have made changes and built their prototypes. So the global project of the people’s sports car produced by the technical universities. So can kill several birds with one stone. The more young minds and hands on the car, the faster defects will be corrected, the more prototypes will be output and the higher the chance to get a decent car. After all, the main task of the authors of the Crimea is to design affordable and effective two-seater sports car. The price is about one million rubles (the same is charged Lada Vesta Sport). Wazowski units promise low-cost content. Of course, on the Assembly line no one speaks, but the release of small quantities is possible. A problem with the suspension definitely will be solved. After all, it formed a major car designers — they have a lot of Luggage in the head with stuffed practice cones.

New rules from December — tires, economy, Parking fines and vehicle tax

From the first day of 2020 in Russia will operate the new fines for drivers of Minivans and similar vehicles, as well as carcharhinoid companies and those car owners who just acquired the vehicle.

Traffic police with the new year gets the right to penalize drivers of Gazelles, Parking their cars in yards of residential houses for the night. For it the penalty in the amount from 1 thousand to 5 thousand rubles, writes Life.

You can’t Park in the yards at night and carsharing vehicles (commercial transport). Fines for this violation in the amount from 1 thousand to 5 thousand rubles will be issued to companies who can then shift their compensation to the person who rented the car.

Do not Park in yards and cars that are also commercial transport.

In addition, from 1 January 2020, do not drive on public roads on vehicles without state registration plates. Prescribed penalty for this violation is a fine of 5 thousand rubles or deprivation of rights.

  • In December motorists of Moscow began to be fined for Parking on specmaster in the yards, marked with red-white markings.

The penalties for the average velocity will be canceled. But it’s not exactly

There was a chance that the cameras, to measure average vehicle speed on the basis of the evidence which the fines are issued, will disappear from the roads. The Supreme court has questioned the calculations.

History, thanks to which the question of the average speed reached the Supreme court, was not easy, says Ren TV. To its logical end, it brought a retired military man Nikolay Barlow, which was fined for exceeding the average speed, although the way the man was driving erratically.

After receiving the fine, Nicholas appealed to the court that was lost. He then appealed to the higher court, which did not bring the desired result. Before reaching the Supreme court, the motorist was able to prove that there was no violation.

“Many, when I began to complain, asking about the price issue, and when I talked about 250 rubles, many laughed. Many people find it easier to pay, well, a matter of principle”, — says Nikolay Barlow.

The motorist was able to defend their rights because at the station where he was fined, there is Congress on the road with the higher allowed speed, after which you can return to the fine 70-mile-long segment. Thus, the cameras record an increase in average speed. In a different situation to prove his innocence, for example, by requiring them to present evidence (time and place, as required by law) violations, will not work. Despite the fact that the possibility of fines for exceeding the average speed in the laws there.

“Right, we are not precedential. Therefore, if there is a plot in another case not 70 km and less, for example 8-10, and not Congress, the court decides otherwise”, — explains the lawyer Sergey Radko.

Measurement of the average speed biased, which many motorists consider it just another extortion. To get to the penalty can be, for example, cut a path, as happened with Nicholas. Or, conversely, you can avoid the penalty by making a stop at the controlled section, and then go in excess of. At these gaps, which cannot be eliminated, drew attention in the State Duma.

“The driver should bear the liability for a particular violation in a particular place at a particular time, if the violation is recorded. The decision should not be based on guesses, physico-mathematical calculations,” — said the Deputy Yaroslav Nilov.

  • As it turned out, not every accident can be considered an accident, and then from her place to leave.
