We have already talked about pre-production prototypes Arcana. “Driving” met on the roads of St. Petersburg with the option of crossover, which in a few weeks will begin to give buyers. Spoiler: Arkana, and delight, and disappoint at the same time.Cyril Mileshkin “Behind the wheel”

Renault Arkana, without exaggeration, is the main novelty of the year in the Russian market. Still a combination of price and style we had. Therefore, of great interest to the car is easy to explain.

Chief editor of the magazine “Behind the wheel” Maxim Kadako brought a close acquaintance with the concept, train on pre-production test samples, clambered the final version of the machine. I also had the honor first check the trademark lasso for a full test drive.

At a prelaunch press briefing prenosniki announced prices for the entire range of Arkan and said that ordered from the dealer already can be any of them. But all ten test crossovers were the same: 150 turmoil, CVT and all-wheel drive. Well, understandable: the French want to go with a strong card showing in all its glory a fundamentally new combination of engine and box.

Know how to ride

Much as I tried, a strong friendship motor and variator to upset could not. On pressing the right pedal first meets his forces, and the time of acceleration, the continuously variable transmission adds variety to the music of his song, skillfully mimicking the classic transmission.

Nicer just add gas at city speeds. The speedometer quickly will throw the arrow at 30-40 km/h upwards, and you will not notice that the heat of the Arcana is cooled significantly after the mark “80”. But not disappears! Especially if we compare with the tandem that had stood on the top versions of other compact crossovers rinochnih — aspirated 2.0 and an ancient 4-speed automatic DP2. Enthusiasm cross-coupe enough.

I traveled enough in Duster and Capture. Almost more character motor and CVT I was interested in podmazochnye settings Arcana. Cars on the platform B0/Global Access features outstanding energy intensity, excellent smoothness, but noticeable rolls, preventing to go active. With kupeobrazny body and youth style harnesses that fit poorly, so it was obvious that the suspension settings will reconsider.

Led fog lights — basic equipment all the harness. As shines can: in St. Petersburg there are white nights.Led fog lights — basic equipment all the harness. As shines can: in St. Petersburg there are white nights.

Suspension questions

Soothe potential and already existing but not yet received car buyers: with the energy suspension full order! However, “hitting” our directions are as comfortable as on the Duster, will not work. Arkana tells in detail about each bump under the wheels. Slightly greater stiffness, the engineers paid for the best cornering behaviour. The electric power steering from the hands of eager tire dimensions 215/60 R17 have a “fat” profile. If Duster and Kaptur kings of the broken roads, the Arkana is their Queen.

Noise isolation good. The voice of the engine on acceleration is not beyond the pale. Aerodynamic noise in the area of the side mirrors emerges after 110 km/h and generally unobtrusive. Here tires Bridgestone Dueler not like rough asphalt: have patience. If you buy the lasso solely under a “civilized” use, we recommend you choose a more quiet pure road rubber.

Full off-road portion of our route does not provide. I think it is not needed. The angles of entry and exit from the harness is the same as Capture. And endurance crossover powertrain Renault told for years and give a link to her exploits.

Forget about the past

The main advantage of Arcana and its ergonomics. Keeping in mind the misunderstanding at all “lachanophobia”, I feared that the cross-coupe, the French discredit “alternative” solutions. Done! All keys in the right places. The infamous button got is that the heated rear seats but they are at least in sight, and not somewhere in the “blind area”.

Renault Arkana: the first detailed test of the serial car

Polo sedans are in steady demand. Good reputation of the machine confirms its being in demand by taxi companies. With this in mind, be very careful when choosing a used option, and conversations with the sellers, especially if the mileage is 100 000 km, warns expert “Behind the wheel”.Stanislav Panin “Behind the wheel”

Volkswagen Polo Sedan — an example of successful adaptation of the car on a global platform under the conditions of a particular market, with the organization of local production. At all external similarity to the ancestor of the Polo hatchback fifth generation (European Assembly), our sedan has a lot of differences, most of which concerns chassis. Therefore, we will talk about the characteristics of Russian sedan.

The Germans came so thoroughly to the finalization of the Polo under our conditions, that I missed a spirited Koreans, who in the same period hit brought the Hyundai Solaris and Kia Rio. Later restyled Polo in 2015 and immediate release of the second generation of Solaris/Rio only increased the gap. However, the Polo Sedan is still steady demand, including in the secondary market. A good reputation confirms the demand for taxis. With this in mind, be very careful when choosing a used option, and conversations with the sellers, especially if the mileage is 100 000 km.

Sometimes peeling paint on the roof above the windshield , due to the active “sandblasting” (this applies to a limited number of machines).

The main cause of failure wiper front — acidification of its trapezoid (bushings). For some strange reason this happens in the summer and in hot weather. The main thing — time to maintain the trapeze, otherwise the bushings will sour so much that the site will not work to disassemble without damage.

Even new cars can rattle the fuel tubing in place of their attachment near the bulkhead of the engine compartment. Appears plastic resonating sound in the cabin at certain engine speeds. Treated seal mounts any possible means.

Very high mileage cars can give oblezshie from “sandblasting” the corners of the front fenders in the area of the joints with the doors/sills.

Bulb size the headlights have to change very often. The exact reason for the small lifetime of service men to identify failed. Top-mount headlight (lugs) are pretty flimsy, break from a light impact. The market is cheap Chinese kits mounts.

On the market there are many aftermarket parts for the Polo. However, buying them should be selective. For example, you can safely take aftermarket suspension parts from top manufacturers, but the inner CV joint (tripod in the case of ACP) must be native (even busnum), as any replacements will have very little resource.

Buy aftermarket body parts makes no sense. Native iron has an adequate price tag and very good quality, especially in terms of corrosion resistance.

Plastic front panel (TV) breaks even with a slight external impact. Sloppy enough to poke a high curb or frozen snow. If the crack is formed in place support (pillows) radiators, the heat exchangers in the end, you can lose in the truest sense of the word.

Small stones quickly gloss over the honeycomb radiator of the air conditioner, so you need to install protective mesh in the bumper grill. Heat exchangers should be washed every 60 000 km. the First symptom of impurity radiators — fast escape of freon (the need for frequent refilling of air conditioning), provoked a significant increase in pressure in the circuit due to poor cooling of the heat exchanger.

The quality of paint from the Polo good as corrosion resistance. Effect careful adaptation of the car to the Russian conditions. Corrosion Polo secure no worse than the more expensive models of the concern, and in its class compares favorably with many competitors.The quality of paint from the Polo good as corrosion resistance.

Corrosion Polo secure no worse than the more expensive models of the concern, and in its class compares favorably with many competitors.

The lock cylinder on the driver’s door is weak. It’s pretty fast to wear out due to constant use on cars cheap models without remote control Central locking. In cold weather especially high risk to break it while turning. Effective prophylaxis for a significant extension of the lifetime of the larvae have not yet invented.

On previous machines installed lock cylinder on the trunk lid. She lives not for long: either wears out quickly or tightly hammered in a couple of seasons.

THE ENGINES AND GEAR BOXES

Atmospheric engine 1.6 series CFNA (85 and 105 HP) working on the “pre-reform” machines. The difference in power is achieved only with the corresponding version of firmware of the control unit.

And the main annoying feature is the knocking of the pistons when relaying on a cold engine; in the process of warming up it goes away. Basically, this “backing vocals” appears after 50 000 km Since April 2013, the manufacturer started to install the upgraded pistons, but it didn’t help. A knock is present even in the “pre-reform” machines 2015 release and those who are old piston changed under warranty.

Knock but piston does not lead to significant deterioration of mirrors of cylinders — many engines run without major overhaul to 400 000 km. This confirms the experience of taxis.

In the area relaying the pistons are clearly visible corresponding traces that are easy to detect using an endoscope already on the mileage of 100,000 km they progress slowly and do not turn into bullies. Even on engines with high mileage knock goes away after warming up. Then in memory POPs up a similar story with a Ford engine Duratec 1.6 Ti-VCT. It also works noisy and begins to rattle piston for small runs that do not particularly affect its resource.

Many owners confuse the knocking piston noise worn timing chain. It is much longer and requires replacement only closer to 200 000 km recorded only a few cases of her jump or a cliff.

His contribution to vocal motor lifters make. After 30,000 km they start to actively make noise “on cold”. This feature of the work, change them because this noise is not necessary.

The water pump along with attached belt and rollers — consumables. Usually they change it to 60 000-90 000 km. And it is important to update all together. Only the replacement strap and clips, the owners returned to service with the current or humming pump in a couple thousand miles.

Common leaks antifreeze plastic tube located behind the inlet pipeline. Very often have to be replaced after 50 000 km.

Often up to 100 000 km does not survive the exhaust manifold — crack connection channels of the second and third cylinders. The price of the original cotcollector high (70 000), so the owners prefer the knot-substitute domestic production, without a Converter. To do this antiecological have to step out of despair. New native collector would have to change after 100 000 km and successfully repaired it impossible: the metal is too thin.

Another common source of excessive noise exhaust system — failing from time to time the corrugation pipe.

A few years ago, were frequent surgery to replace the left engine mounts. Native pillow wore out literally after 10,000 km, what signaled a characteristic vibration when starting the motor. The unofficial put aftermarket support, and thus solved the problem once and for all. Now the flow of cars is almost gone.

Engine 1.6 series CWVAАтмосферный motor series 1.6 CWVA

On the facelifted Polo have upgraded engine 1.6 CWVA series (90 and 110 HP, power depends on firmware version). It belongs to a more recent family of EA211. The engine free from the shortcomings of its predecessor and CFNA has the timing belt. Compared to the “chain” predecessor motor CWVA — demure.

Not without drawbacks: CWVA is characterized by increased consumption of oil (with a high probability will have to add a liter between THEN), which reduces after 30 000 km, but is still uncharacteristically high for a atmospheric engine this volume. Thus approximately every tenth unit oil consumption is not observed — perhaps it reflects selective Assembly.

Today run cars with this engine are not too big, but you can rely on the positive experience of the taxi companies, which employ more severe Octavia of the third generation. They CWVA began to put much earlier. While he has not noted any weaknesses, in addition to increased oil consumption, and requires only routine maintenance.

Forced motor 1.4 (125 HP) series motor CZCAНаддувный 1.4 (125 HP) series CZCA

Forced motor 1.4 (125 HP) series CZCA available for the Polo in 2016. It belongs to the EA211 family, like atmospheric engine 1.6 CWVA.

For reviews of official and independent stations, the engine range of the new generation has become much safer. For example, the motor CZCA 1.4 causes significantly fewer complaints than 1.4 CAXA (122 HP), which established, for example, on the Golf of the sixth generation. However, any modern forced motor has standard weaknesses, requires special attention during operation and increased attention in the diagnosis, when it comes to a used car lot.

A robot with the seven-speed dry clutch DSG DQ200Семиступенчатый robot with a dry clutch DSG DQ200

A robot with the seven-speed dry clutch DQ200 DSG is paired with a supercharged engine 1.4. In the past, this box has a lot of problems, but the manufacturer has fixed a lot of shortcomings and have increased the resource of its individual components. On the Polo Sedan, it began to put only in 2016, by that time it has undergone some serious upgrades and numerous software updates.

The main fault DQ200: rapid wear of the clutch and bearings forks gear shift, and the refusal mechatronics. Box is designed for a maximum torque of 250 N·m and is set on a larger and more powerful models of the concern. Therefore, the global sores DQ200 touch Polo with its not the uprated engine to a lesser extent, but they still need to be prepared.

Grip upgraded several times and now its average yield is close to 100 000 km. Informal services charge for replacement about 55,000 rubles. Mechatronics still behaves unpredictably and can die at any mileage. Replacement will cost about the same 55 000 rubles, but some profile stations repair it for significantly less money. Often worn bearings forks sixth and reverse gears; the market is their original kit, work on the replacement costs about 40 000-45 000.

The mechanical part of the robot (the components of a typical MKP) go for a long time and rarely need attention. Most importantly — at least once every 50 000 km to change the oil in it. It is important to fill approximately 2.1 liters and not officially recommended volume of 1.7 liters. The extra oil won’t hurt the unit, on the contrary, will prolong the life of mechanical parts, eliminating oil starvation.

A six-speed automatic Aisin TF series‑60 (09G)Six-speed automatic Aisin TF series‑60 (09G)

A six-speed automatic Aisin TF series‑60 (09G) refers to the caste of a successful and reliable units. In addition to Polo he is paired with only low-power atmospheric engines of 1.6, so you can kill the box very difficult.

The main thing — not to overheat due to lack of oil, which occurs mainly due to the sloppiness of the driver. In this case, the repair box will be economically feasible.

With adequate operation and oil change every 60 000 km, this machine serves faithfully for a long time.

The inner CV joint of the drive wheels, which are mounted on vehicles with guns – tulips type. Polo on this node have to be changed usually closer to 100,000 km. Fortunately, it is sold separately from the actuator. When it is wear there is a tangible vibration at high speed.

A five-speed manual transmission series 02ТПятиступенчатой mechanical series box 02Т

Filling a 5-speed manual transmission series 02Т not satisfactory, unlike external components for switching and gear selection.

After about 150,000 km wear out the ropes, the yoke becomes loose and broken intermediate plastic lever on the switch box. The first two faults cause reduced clarity include all gear. But the wear on the intermediate lever manifests itself in two ways. Observed difficulty in the inclusion of either the upper or lower range of gears (the selector). That is, for example, the first, third and fifth stage is stuck, and the second and fourth with force, or Vice versa.

A six-speed mechanics is paired only with the supercharged motor 1.4. The demand for such a modification is Polo is very low, cars were sold very little. But about the reliability of the Assembly can be judged from other models of German concern. Even on heavier cars with more powerful motors, this box does not deliver special efforts.

Rack front stabilizer [1] — Frank consumables. Usually enough for 30 000 km And the squeaking of the bushings of the stabilizer is the peculiarity of the “pre-reform” Polo. And it’s not clear why they start to creak. By visual inspection you have taken the bushings never have obvious traces of wear. Sometimes the squeak appears after only 2000-3000 miles after the replacement. More often it occurs in winter.

Front and rear shock absorbers lasts for 100 000 km [2]. This is not the a-pillars lose effectiveness (very easily compressed), and the rear are almost empty, while not having visible stains.

Rods [3] last a long time, change them rarely. Tips update approximately every 100 000 km.

Rear wheel bearings [4] require the replacement of approximately 100,000 km. They are complete with hubs, original parts therefore road. Best buy native part than a particular substitute that is a little cheaper, but runs very small.

Rear brakes on cars of the first model years were problematic due to poor efficiency. In mid-2011, the manufacturer has revised their design, and also changed the beam, and after the upgrade the problem is gone.

Resource rear silent blocks of front levers — about 100 000 km. Ball joints tend to experience this milestone with a large margin. When worn silent blocks much easier and ultimately more profitable to change the lever Assembly, the price of 2000 rubles.

Steering rack [5] on dorestaylingovyh cars starts knocking after 30 000 km — splits right support sleeve made of plastic. Overhaul with replacement sleeves for PTFE is cheap — this operation can even be called a service node. Tapping Reiki manifests in small bumps (comb). The final verdict is issued on the lift when checking the backlash.

Rear drum brakes whimsical [6]. Makes sense to carry out preventive maintenance (disassembly and cleaning) after each winter season. Otherwise, the mechanisms of accumulated dirt, starts screeching. As a result, often have to change pads with little wear, which could be useful. On machines manufactured before mid-2011 (with brake mechanisms of the old designs), after 100,000 km begins to flow to the brake cylinders.

Window regulator driver’s door often live their lives. This is mainly manifested in the fact that when lowering it only triggers after ten seconds of holding the button.

Plastic wheel overwritten pretty quickly. Leather is starting to break after only 100 000 km. Some owners managed to change it under warranty on a small runs, but these were isolated cases.

The heating elements of the front seat cushions do not differ longevity. Eventually they buckle under human weight. The original element in the heated cushion is available as a separate spare parts, but expensive: the price of 8000 rubles.

Failure refrigerant pressure sensor — common fault. Because of this, ceases to engage the air conditioning compressor. The sensor is sold as a separate part, and inexpensive.

Rarely have to change the compressor clutch, which reports the problem, the irritating rumble when it is disconnected. For some strange reason this trouble is much more likely to happen with the platform liftback Skoda Rapid.

Polo Sedan is rightfully one of the top three leaders. It has good liquidity and aggregate consumer qualities slightly behind the couple Solaris/Rio the first generation. However, the “Koreans” second generation went from Russified “Germans” quite far.

In the secondary market sought after Polo in almost any configurations. To avoid is only the basic version without air conditioning and with derated engines 1.6 (85 and 90 HP) — bought them mainly taxis, and cars without AC now is practically useless. Equally good are sold the version with the mechanics with the machine. Prized cars with climate control. Depending on the year this option adds to the price of cars with conventional air conditioning to 70 000 rubles. By the way, this situation is typical not only for the Polo.

I recommend looking at cars with a manual transmission not more than 500 000. A reasonable ceiling for the version with a gun — 600 000 rubles. Better to pick up the car in a good configuration and will ride nicer, and easier to sell then. Such machines, especially automatic, are less other to lose in price. And carefully study the history of the car, because the Polo Sedan — one of the most popular taxis.

SUMMARY

It may seem that the Polo Sedan has too many weaknesses that don’t overlap all its advantages. However, the majority of faults and attachments falls on the mileage of 100,000 km or more. And if to spread these costs for the entire period of owning a car, they will be quite adequate — Polo is not just become one of the most successful taxis.

Crossover Citroen C5 Aircross: the sale started, the price is known

The new Peugeot 2008 will not only get petrol and turbo diesel engines, but will be issued in fully electric version.

In addition to the calm shades of the car body can be painted in bright colors. For example, in deep red (Red Elixir), three-layer sky blue metallic (Vertigo Blue), and a unique bright orange (Fusion Orange). Interior finished with high-quality plastic, interesting colors. For example, the version of the Allure has got light blue finish, and for the versions GT and GT-Line there are 8-color interior lighting.

The Peugeot 2008 is built on a new modular platform CMP. Its length is 4300 mm and a wheelbase of 2600 mm. because of this crossover has a spacious interior and roomy 434-litre boot.

The dashboard is holographic display, which displays information on not in one plane, and it is literally in the air, approaching or moving away, depending on the degree of significance. To the right of the panel is a 10-inch multimedia screen.

The Peugeot 2008 has gained semi-Autonomous control system with hold function of the car in a strip and rebuild, the adaptive cruise control system Parking aid, emergency brake assist beam headlights, the recognition of road signs, the system of monitoring of blind spots, and many others.

The range of engines crossover consists of 3-cylinder petrol and 4-cylinder turbo diesel. The petrol units are 1.2-liter and diesel — 1.5 liters. The power of the motors varies from 100 to 155 HP to Work the engines will be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or 8-speed automatic.

A fully electric version of the Peugeot e-2008 has a power reserve of up to 310 km, while its power reaches 136 HP and 260 Nm. As stated by the manufacturer, the battery of electrocreaser will last a minimum of 8 years or 160 000 km, and its charging you need of 30 minutes when using two-phase station for up to 16 hours from a regular power outlet.

The first all-new crossover will get a European car then the Peugeot will be shipped to other countries — the car is a global model of the company.

Schwarzenegger automakers: Your time is running out!

To be in the city four forest until the end of 2020, said the Paris city hall. And we are talking about the forest, not the usual urban gardens in these areas will be planted with trees, typical of the nature of French pine and birch, according to the portal “Euro Pulse”.

Already decided and in some places is the square in front of city hall of Paris, near the “Opera Garnier”, in Lyon station and along the banks of the Seine. Less trees will appear on the banks of the Seine — not to disturb the UNESCO-protected ensemble, there will plant native grasses.

It is curious that forest authorities have decided to give the space that is now occupied roadways or Parking lots, thinking that the one who should get to places on foot or by public transport. But people will be pleased to walk there — it is planned to organize walking paths and supply benches. Well, the entrances for emergency vehicles, of course, leave.

The city authorities are trying to make the city more “green” to the Olympic games in 2024. Among other innovations planned — replacement 800 Paris buses on the buses.

  • While Russia wants to introduce a single time interval (10 minutes) during which the motorist must pay for Parking. Now, each region sets its own norms, and in Moscow, for example, is only 5 minutes, sometimes car owners do not have time to issue the payment.
  • The police of Geneva wants to put a kind of radar trap to measure the noise of cars and motorcycles.

Justice will not be: the fines will increase in size and number

Deputy head of the Ministry of internal Affairs of the Russian Federation Alexander Gorovoy said at the opening of the faculty of retraining of employees of traffic police at the University of the interior Ministry in Istra on the need to simplify the Rules of the road, but did not specify what they change. In his opinion, SDA today have become too complicated with lots of paragraphs and subparagraphs of making them difficult to navigate, even for professionals.

“Came a time when we need to stop and revise the PDD. Because even our staff today is difficult enough finds sub-paragraphs and paragraphs, sections (in the Rules of the road). What can we ask road users?” — leads TASS words of Alexander Gorovoy.

Deputy interior Minister also noted the excessive complexity of the administrative code, in the reform which the Department must participate. We will remind that 30-page policy recommendations already published by the Russian Government.

“CaO will have before itself two main objectives: optimization for units of state agencies that perform control and Supervisory functions, and the protection of the interests of all parties to administrative proceedings,” — said a senior COP.

The concept of the reform of the administrative code consists of seven sections. The document describes the procedure for the amendment delineates the powers specified by the Federal and regional levels, there are sections on concepts and principles of administrative liability, and also concerning the categories and types of administrative offenses. Special attention is given to mitigating and aggravating circumstances.

Sale of mortgage machine is one of the most common fraudulent schemes in the secondary market. Most often the collateral are expensive cars aged up to three years. To buy such machines possible not only hands, but also in the showroom. How dangerous such a purchase and how not to fall into the trap of careless sellers that are told in the article.Avtocod.ru the author of the blog

What do you mean auto as collateral

The machine can be pledged if it is bought on credit or mortgaged to the Bank or other financial institution under a loan of cash. While the borrower pays the debt of banks and private companies do not have claim to it. But if there is delay, the lenders have full right to seize the collateral. Seek debt via collectors or through the courts.

In the second case, borrower is obligated to repay the debt with all the penalties, and the key goes to the bailiffs. The latter and seize the vehicle for non-payment of debt. That is, the buyer who has acquired the collateral of a car and knows nothing about the existence of encumbrances, becomes a debtor to the Bank. If it will be the bailiffs, he risks to remain without the machine and without money given unreliable seller.

About the real example of life tells avtoekspert Alexander Makarov:

My buddy bought the car for 450 thousand rubles and became its third owner. Before buying the car is not checked out, and a year later it came the bailiffs and announced that the car is owned by the Bank. First the owner stopped paying the debt, and the officers decided to impound the vehicle. Not to be left without a car, a friend paid the foreign debt of 200 thousand rubles. Later it turned out that the previous owner did not know that the car was pledged.

What precautions are there

According to the Director of the pawnshop “Old town” Vitaly Zaikova, the outcome of purchase collateral car depends on how committed the transaction. “If the new owner during the transaction will take an extract from the register of pledges where the pledge is not registered, the buyer is considered fair, — said the expert. If when signing the contract of purchase and sale the Deposit was registered in the registry, and the buyer did not check the car, although he had the opportunity, his actions do not fit the requirements of good faith. The new owner assumes financial responsibility, and may lose the car if the previous owner will cease to pay off debt”.

Also read: All about salvage cars: should you buy the car after the accident

Everything can the new owner sue the seller. But that by that time, as a rule, already “has legs”. “Not to assume someone else’s debt, you need legs to walk to the notary and take an extract from the register. Only in this case the actions of the buyer are considered to be conscientious,” adds Vitaly Zaikov.

How to know if a car is listed as collateral

To check whether the car as collateral, is possible through the service check vehicle history avtocod.ru. It is sufficient to specify the license plate or VIN of the vehicle. The service has access to the registry of mortgages the Federal notarial chamber and shows listed the car as collateral and when the car was mortgaged to the Bank or other financial institution.

Ordering a report, you will also learn the complete history of the car: if he got in an accident, issued a duplicate title if there are unpaid fines, twisted, whether mileage, and more. See report example in the photo below.

Buying a used car is a lottery. But your safety is in your hands. Be vigilant and don’t believe everything the seller says.

Experts “Behind the wheel” held test-drive all-wheel drive Japanese crossover on the pavement and the roads, drove the car on a roller platform and is based on tests and data producers prepared a detailed technical reference.Yuriy Timkin “Behind the wheel”

Impressions of familiarity with the characters test-drive, and the conclusions of experts “Behind the wheel” read at this link.

Below — the data producers, and other important technical information, as well as the results of the testing of the crossovers on roller platforms.

RUNNING IN PLACE

To evaluate the performance of a full drive, we not only go off-road, but driving the car on the roller platform, imitating the plot with a zero coefficient of friction.

The first task — the crossovers should move out with two platforms, installed under the front wheels. All three of you handled it in a heartbeat.

The second stage is the “diagonal”. Puts a platform under one front wheel and under the opposite rear. First to the “shell” suitable for Suzuki SX4 — confident and exercises. Following calls Nissan Qashqai. Immediately to cope with the task failed, only after push lock clutch he managed to pull off the platforms. Mitsubishi ASX — even with a lock, even without it — remained immovable: by standing on the pavement, the wheel traction is not transmitted at all. Moreover, after 10 seconds of slipping lit up a warning about overheating of the transmission.

The final test — when the land for only one wheel — not sustained no crossover.

Summary: Suzuki SX4 — first place, Nissan Qashqai — the second place, the Mitsubishi ASX — the third place.

Diagonal hanging is not an insurmountable obstacle to the Qashqai. It generally allows more than the SX4: the sweeping suspension travel, ground clearance — 175 mm. He even beveled the front bumper, and it would be quite good.

Here on the ASX with an entrance angle of 21.5°, it is possible boldly to cross difficult terrain, though ground clearance — 175 mm. the same But with good potential “mitso” not a fighter: no matter mount electronics simulates blocking of differentials, during diagonal display machine freezes helplessly.

SX4 was able to pull off the diagonal rollers in the automatic mode of the transmission. The clutch block was not necessary.SX4 was able to pull off the diagonal rollers in the automatic mode of the transmission. The clutch block was not necessary.

The most comfortable seat in the Qashqai. In SX4 prevents the buoyancy profile of the back, and the ASX is too weak lateral support. To the ergonomics of the Nissan and Suzuki have no complaints, but Mitsubishi will ctirisize a bit too low selector to the variator. Visibility in SX4 worse — mirrors are too small.

Which of the three poluprovodnikov the most capable off-road and better suited for the role of a family car for every day: thoroughbred “Japanese” or made in Hungary or made in Russia? Knows the answer expert “Behind the wheel”.Yuriy Timkin “Behind the wheel”


Usually we collect a group test around the completely new model and enclosed it with several classmates. Rarely the instigator performs a restyled car only if it is the star of sales.

Today, as the stars — the Nissan Qashqai, which last year sold in the amount of 23 192 copies, entered the top‑25 of the Russian market and has taken a leading position in its segment.

The design has changed slightly. The main emphasis is on the refinement of the driving character, to test his strength will help us Mitsubishi ASX and the Suzuki SX4 with all-wheel drive and engines of comparable power.

In front of the camera!

When nissanusa just started to put multimedica with Yandex.Navigator, we would not advise for him to pay — the system was incompatible with the rear view camera. Last spring, the programmers have removed this question, and to sacrifice videosfrom no longer need. Victory? Well, as you say… the Camera turns on with a five-second delay, and it can bring to a white heat, even a Buddhist monk. And download after starting the engine lasts too long seconds seven or eight.

Otherwise, Yandex.Navigator good. Confidently leading the route with traffic information, shows the real speed and warns you about cameras. And still have access to online stations and weather forecast. But the price is still bite — 54 000 rubles. I would spend the money on other Goodies.

Unlike opponents, Nissan can be equipped with led headlights with automatic switching from main beam to dipped beam, system monitoring blind spots and lane traffic, sameprovision, system of the circular review. But you can disable this “pampering” and choose reasonable enough version of SE+ 1 749 000 rubles (talking about the four-wheel drive versions with the CVT).

The interior of the Qashqai makes a very pleasant impression. Surprisingly decent sound music. The most comfortable in the test, a trio of front seats and luxurious (by the standards of the segment, of course) the back row with two USB ports for charging gadgets and air vents in the side of the Central tunnel. Plus unavailable to rivals the heater windshield, steering wheel and rear seats. There are obvious flaws — Logan ceiling in the ceiling and the absence of a platform for smartphone.

It is still possible to accept, but with the front seats — no. They have backless push profile and the lumbar support is not adjustable.

Other issues to ergonomics arose. The mutual position of the wheel, pedals and selector machine calibrated, like friendly and intuitive interface multimediasystem.

The ASX interior is trying to look youthful, luring sparkling metal pedals and a massive paddles, but these externals can not hide the age.

ASX can’t fight back and the second row: knees back of the front seats, the ceiling is low. “I became a part of the supporting structure!” — joked our 190‑centimeter test. The situation is aggravated by the awkward profile of the pillow. And pockets in the doors there.

According to our measurements, in the gallery, too, the SX4 should be close, however, this stiffness does not feel. Besides, in Suzuki you can change the back angle (though only has two positions). The biggest amount of space for rear passengers in the Qashqai.

The power is there?

Studying technical data, you “write off” Suzuki: he’s got the weakest engine is only 140 HP But the SX4 is staying away from opponents with mocking ease! Even from space, though with the way he shoots forward and disappears from sight.

There are two explanations for this swagger. First, the turbo. It provides solid torque (220 N·m) on a very wide “shelf” revs. Second, the SX4 easier opponents at least 170 kg.

And the Mitsubishi engine hangs at 6000 rpm, filling the cabin with such howling, his right leg involuntarily releases the pedal. Yes, and without it noisier ASX: howls the wind, the hum of the road.

To facelift Qashqai, too, was not a wallflower, but with the additional mats on the bottom engine shield and multilayer windshield noise has become less about the level of SX4.

And even Suzuki all “parathormone”. The braking distance of a Nissan and Mitsubishi a little longer. From Qashqai perfectly tuned drive pedals that allow the mixture of slowing with millimeter precision. ASX got stuck late, and this should be used. But why, having laid out more than half a million, you need something to adjust?

The crunch of bones

I always liked the Qashqai, but would not buy — does not suit the smoothness. Travel even for a symbolic irregularities was accompanied by an unpleasant jolting. However, with recalibrated springs and dampers ride comfort was clearly higher. Even on the broken asphalt the April — peace and grace.

And it to sacrifice the handling was not necessary. Updated Qashqai rides confident the former — affected by the increased diameter front stabilizer bar and new soft of electrical power, whereby at the helm appeared quite sane feedback. A completely different car. And I like it!

But the ASX since our last meeting has not changed: what was shaking, and left. Machine unpleasantly granulate in the comb and succumb to the irregularities of the caliber of larger. And loudly cracks his knuckles suspensions. Finally, the “mitso” is worse than Nissan and Suzuki holds a direct before sliding out of line, scaring deep rolls.

And what there is off-road! A small cut underneath the sound of a rattle. Short-stroke suspension, so the wheels are posted on time. In the dry it is not so bad, because properly tuned electronics helps to get out of the diagonal “hanging”.

  • SX4 is very good and surely keeps straight. Performance is much better than the competition. This car is perceived by the driver as a passenger and not as a crossover.
  • After upgrading Qashqai was better to obey the helm, added to the smoothness. But performance remained the same, mediocre level.
  • By accelerating the dynamics of the ASX , no complaints, but the soundtrack is hung on a 6000 rpm motor unpleasant.

Yuriy Timkin: “Upgraded Qashqai gained what he lacked, – a noble handling and a decent ride. Significantly podustal Suzuki SX4 and Mitsubishi ASX — the obvious outsider.”Yuriy Timkin: “Upgraded Qashqai gained what he lacked, – a noble handling and a decent ride.

The problems with ergonomics, tight rear number, poor equipment and modest driving comfort it would be possible to close the eye with the low price, however, test the ASX only 36 000 rubles cheaper than SX4, which took second place.

ASX long need to replace new machine, but instead, the Japanese issued only a facelifted version, which will go on sale closer to winter. Look in the spirit of the L200 pickup truck and modern multimedica are the main innovations. Technical filling all the same.

Suzuki SX4 is a living car with nice handling, but with a ground clearance of 145 mm will not get far.

Qashqai today best. Spacious, comfortable, well equipped and perfectly adapted to Russian conditions. A great combination of price and quality determines its leadership in sales.
