Video: VW Passat And Skoda Superb Fail Moose Test
The Swedish magazine Teknikens Värld conducted a new series of moose tests, which two models did not pass at once. Problems with a sharp detour of the obstacle arose in the hybrid station wagons Volkswagen Passat GTE and SkodSuperb iV.
Skod station wagon with a hybrid power plant of 218 hp at the beginning of the exercise I encountered drift, and at the end - with a skid. At a speed of 72 km / h, the car was unable to return to the finish corridor. Superb drove 68 km / h without any mistakes, but not on the first try.
- The technically identical Volkswagen Passat GTE performed similarly. It passed the test at 68 km / h, but at 70 km / h it began to knock down cones, although it did not come to a departure from the road, as in the case of the Skoda. According to experts, the cars failed the test due to an unsuccessful tuning of the stabilization system.
According to Teknikens Värld's methodology, cars with a permissible full load must avoid a sudden obstacle without notice and return to the lane at a speed of at least 72 km / h. For comparison, the Mercedes-Benz C-class and Peugeot 508 station wagons, which are similar in size, coped with the moose test at speeds of 74 and 78 km / h, respectively.
In 2019, the Swedish publication found out that the ToyotRAV4 hybrid crossover at a speed of over 70 km / h suddenly breaks into a skid, leaves the designated area and stands on two wheels. Later, Toyot improved the vehicle's stabilization system.
In Russia, Volkswagen Passat and SkodSuperb are offered only with petrol turbo engines - 1.4 with a capacity of 150 hp. and a 190-horsepower two-liter. Passat with "mechanics" is available in a four-door body at a price of 1,829,000 rubles. Litfback Superb with a "robot" costs at least 1,980,000 rubles, a station wagon - 2,240,000 rubles.
