2013 Ford Focus ST Review

Ford Focus ST with outstanding features compared with its less powerful engines colleagues are deliberately restrained. The 18-inch model in the ST design fill out the wheelarches look good, snout and tail are a discreet spoiler and diffuser with integrated center exhaust by the roof spoiler, the only externally incident identification.

Ford Focus ST 2013

Inside, the ST design, however, is striking. A bespoke suit resembling the Recaro seats that are suitable to order according to model in two-tone exterior paint to provide excellent support when cornering at speed. The operation of all functions is a bit strange, since at least the middle console of switches almost overloaded.

Works closely tailored the passenger compartment. It may be due to the lower body, which still leaves enough headroom? Or is it the very slim fitted interior of the Focus? In any case the passengers are well embedded in a Ford Focus, suggesting a degree of greater safety.

Electrically folding exterior mirrors with environment lighting and Blind Spot Assist, the Lane Assistant including fatigue Warner and high-beam assistant, the traffic signs detection and heated windshield and washer jets. In sum, considered almost a bargain. It is used for traffic safety and can be used for relaxing travel.

Ford Focus ST 2013

Performance

Nothing against a 2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine. An engine that can be found virtually in its basic configuration for all manufacturers. We missed the five-cylinder engine from the previous-ST and the RS and the RS 500 yet. The hoarse rattle, pushing the brutal and distinctive motorsport genes had to yield many new demands.

Ford Focus in its currently fastest edition also serves Handsome vehicle for the long haul. Since no menacing sound and the onboard annoying family can relax and chat. The Ford on average stated consumption of 7.2 liters can only be achieved with a lot of restraint. In our tests, the onboard computer was usually at about 10 liters, which should be noted is that we usually go pretty fast, were prevalent cold temperatures and snow tires were mounted.

Almost perfectly accustomed are the driving characteristics of the ST. As with all the other Focus models, the chassis is designed with a mix of sportiness and comfort, so that no harm beats the disc, yet the fleet cornering is done brilliantly. When ST is the sporty tuning tighter the ticking and is supported harmoniously with the electric power steering EPAS, the three-stage ESP and electronic differential lock and the CUSC system.

The electronic power steering is calibrated so that it influences torque even more sensitive and detects as for example with simple straight ahead looks extremely smooth and sporty cornering extreme acts directly with corresponding slight resistance. Already quite sporty design is the normal level of the ESP, in contrast to the other Focus models engages much later. The repeal of the traction control, the next step can be to even slight drifts and intervenes only resume once the aid is urgently needed. Completely goes well, but should be of only experienced pilots and used most exclusively on racetracks.

Opposite effects are showing yet matched TVC and CUSC. The electronic differential lock TVC (Torque Vectoring Control) brakes in quickly approached curves the inner wheel off specifically to reduce the typical understeer tendency of a front-wheel drive. The opposite approach suggests a CUSC (Cornering understeer control). By a specific torque is added, before the ESP used, affects the yaw angle and the sensitivity is equal throughout, whether the driver is accelerating or not straight. The highlights of the ST in spheres that succeeds by other manufacturers generally only with adaptive chassis.

2013 Audi A3 Review

With the third generation of the 2013 Audi A3 is optically become even more dynamic. This should have been applied to its driving dynamics. Latest Assistance and communications systems are also optional on board. Audi has its compact therefore well equipped to the hotly contested premium segment of this vehicle class customers and clients can.

Audi A3 2013

Audi A3 with 150 hp diesel engine. Standard besides ABS, ESB and six airbags are also 17 "alloy wheels, power windows, air conditioning, sports seats, a leather sports steering wheel, sports suspension, the radio" Audi ", Fog lights, trip computer and a few other goodies on board.

New A3 with a front center armrest, the MMI radio, the navigation package with a retractable 5.8 "color screen, xenon plus headlights, the light package, the multi-function sports steering wheel, heated seats, cruise control, 8-speaker, an electronic 2-zone climate control, the parking aid plus front and rear, as well as the metallic paint "monsoon gray."

Audi A3 2013 interior

Inside, the A3 is just as dynamic as the body. The designers have clearly worked on the premise that less is often more tailored and a sporty interior and factual. The round air vents and a center console that has been very slim stress in combination with the silver inlays and comfortable sports seats, the sporty ambience.

The navigation system runs automatically when it starts out from the upper part of the center console and offers a very nice presentation, although the display of 5.8 is not "one of the largest in its class. Operation MMI knob on the center console is down it's very easy , and all other functions are intuitive. With such a tidy work space allows the driver to concentrate fully on driving.

The available space for driver and passenger has failed extraordinarily generous in the rear it comes naturally to some type of construction closely. The narrow entrance, which after folding the sports seats remains to climb over the back seat, is also only for articulating people.

Audi A3 2013

Generous failed then the luggage compartment, which is with 365 liter capacity and quite spacious by folding down the rear seats can be enhanced. There are also many large storage compartments in the passenger compartment and convenient cup holders.

When a car is designed as sporty as the A3 then expected also in the engine a little more. Here is the new 2.0-liter TDI with an output of 150 hp (110 kW) is a good choice. The engine offers right from the start and compelling performance coupled carries out his work very quiet and smooth. The maximum torque of 320 Nm is available from 1750 to 3000 rev / min are available, but even among them one notices anything about a turbo lag. Even at every little pressure on the gas pedal the engine delivers its power immediately and is also in the intermediate sprint from high gears out yet blessed with enough pulling power.

Audi A3 2013

By pressing the "drive select" can also choose different driving modes. The driver has the choice between "comfort", "dynamic", "car", "efficiency" and "individal". Depending on which mode is selected, and steering, accelerator mapping and dynamics are changed.

Even in the "comfort" mode, the A3 is moving dynamically, the difference with the "sport" mode, although noticeable, but not huge. Who chooses the sporting set, the sprints in 8.6 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h and up to 216 km / h.

The steering fits here perfectly the dynamic appearance, and the chassis, despite its sporty yet pleasantly comfortable. The 6-speed manual transmission is also well aligned and can be switched exquisite, light and very crisp. The courses are designed to be long, so that even at highway speeds in a still very low speed range is traveling.


So the A3 creates in turn the perfect balance between driving pleasure and fuel economy tidy. Who is the most economical way mode, which is indicated on the factory 4.1 liter come pretty close. We chose during our consumption round the "auto" mode, it certainly once tasted the power of the 2.0 liter diesel engine and come up with an average fuel consumption of 5.2 liters - a top value for the offered performance and driving pleasure.

In the city the very good working start / stop system helps saving, so you are both in city traffic as well as outside with the A3 always good journey. Despite its coupe-like styling, the clarity is surprisingly good, the parking aid is nevertheless a useful extra and helps maneuver the A3 to the nearest centimeter in tight parking spaces.

The new Audi A3 can really shine with more driving pleasure with even more efficient consumption. Compared to its predecessor, he has continued to improve in terms of premium character even further. It provides a very neat processed interior, which contrasts pleasantly with its reduction to the essentials of some other model. The slim design of the interior gives the whole car a lightness that is noticeable in driving dynamics. That the A3 despite its sporty performance as sparingly remains is another plus point.

Ford S-Max 2.0 EcoBoost Review

With the second-generation Galaxy and Ford S-Max is started, which is the 5-seater and sportier version of the Galaxy. Visually, it differs mainly in the rear area of the Galaxy, but also the round fog lamps in the front end are a design feature of the S-Max.

Ford S-Max New

Even more sporty he is tested by us 2.0 liter EcoBoost version and Titanium S-Type. Ford Individual body styling package, a center console "Piano Finish", a leather / Alcantara upholstery, 18 "alloy wheels, a roof spoiler, bi-xenon headlights, tinted windows from the B column, cruise control, heated front seats , a 2-zone climate control and much more on board.

Our test vehicle drenched in addition, with the driver package PLUS, the business package medium, the travel package, the seat package, scuff plates front with S-MAX logo and painted in candy red, which is the sporting Van particularly well.

Although the S-Max has been on the market for several years, he has still rough around the edges and seems to be the elixir of eternal youth to have to get on the road. Even newer representative of its class can compete neither with the sporty appearance even when space is limited.

Ford S-Max New

The interior offers plenty of room, but it is designed so that you also might think that with a sedan on the road. Front of the driver is a very tidy dashboard, which is home to the modern speedometer with large display for navigation, radio stations and more.

Due to the large center console with cup holders and a comfortable armrest, he is very similar to the Mondeo. The grip leather steering wheel with contrasting stitching and the sports seats with perfect support convey a bit of a sports car feeling. The passengers in the second row in the travel business class on long-haul flights, at least as far as the leg-and headroom.

No wish unfulfilled and the trunk volume. With more than 700 kilos of payload and 854 liter capacity of the S-Max is clearly identified as Van. Who can do without the second row gets even up to 2,100 liters of cargo space provided, so the S-Max 2.0 EcoBoost is an ideal quick loadmaster.

Ford S-Max New

And "fast" can be understood in the literal sense of the word. The new 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine is a real goodie and gives the Van sporty acceleration data. The power of the turbocharged engine is 240 hp (176 kW) and maximum torque of 340 Nm the engine delivers 1900 to 3500 rev / min. He has been out of the rev range a very responsive power delivery, the word "turbo lag" is for the new Ford turbo engine is a foreign word.

The force is so immediately made ​​available, that one must above all be very careful when parking maneuver. The S-Max bites at every little touch on the accelerator immediately enormous.

Very good for the characteristics of the car fits the Ford PowerShift automatic transmission. The 6-speed Direct Shift Gearbox impresses with fast switching operations, which are also designed to be very soft. Thus, the power flow is continuously present, and one to sprint in just 7.9 seconds from a standing start to 100 km / h The top speed is 235 km / h.

Ford S-Max New

Yet despite its sporty engine performs its work even at full acceleration or at highway speeds very smoothly and quietly. The S-Max is recommended also as an ideal touring sedan with a perfect sound insulation offers great comfort.

Even the sports suspension provides enough comfort and filters bumps off perfectly. Ford has also found the S-Max is a very good match between sportiness and driving comfort. Nevertheless, the large van is like a board on the street, and you can measure exactly around tight curves without causing a capsizing feeling.

It is in such moments is easy to forget that you are actually traveling with a family van and no sports car. The very direct steering is also very pleasant, because it requires but rather higher steering forces, leading to the vote but it fits well.

Ford S-Max New

With a length of 477 cm, the Ford S-Max move also quite handy and also loses its terror in the city. The large windows give a perfect view and provide good visibility. With the parking aid can also be estimated very accurately all the corners and perfectly maneuver in tight spaces. Nevertheless, the practical Ford feels more on the highway or freeway probably where he makes with his performance and good vote for a lot of driving pleasure.

Weighing in at just under 1.7 tonnes and the Van typical high build because you have to, especially in the city to expect an increased consumption, which can quickly crack the 10-liter mark. In mixed driving the S-Max has consumed during our tests around 9.5 liters per 100 kilometers, which is indeed the work of the promised 8.3 liters, but for a car of this performance and class size is just under.

Who wants it more economical, can still pick up the diesel. The Ford S-Max 2.0 EcoBoost is especially for those the ideal choice, although they want a sporty car, but need plenty of space for passengers and luggage. The S-Max combines perfectly the versatility that a Van offers, with the driving performance of a sports coupe and can also convince with comfort, a perfect finish and a good equipment.
