acceleration figures, recovery and braking of sports models under one hundred thousand reais
The following lists show the acceleration figures, recovery (80-120 km / h) and braking (120 km / h to 0) of sports for sale in Brazil for up to R $ 100,000. In addition to leveling the price, they all have manual transmission.
Before, again worth the clarification: the numbers obtained by FOUR WHEELS not claim to faithfully represent reality – after all, every driver can get different brands as its played, the fuel used and the test conditions (such as altitude and temperature ).
We aim to bring a car to the track is to evaluate it according to pre-established parameters, identical for all, and they serve to the figures obtained can be compared on equal terms, without the influence of the driver. That is, more important than the absolute numbers is the difference established between them.
All tests are made with the tires inflated to cold, full tank, windows and air intakes closed and the air conditioning off. In manual cars, the gears are changed at the speed indicated for each speed. In automatic, the shift lever is in D (or S if available) and the driver presses the accelerator to the end of the short.
Measurements are obtained by a data acquisition system Racelogic V-Box, more accurate than the car’s speedometer (which usually indicates higher speeds than the actual). The fuel used is always the gasoline so that flex cars and non-flex can be compared on equal terms.
The use of Racelogic V-Box and gasoline generally result in lower acceleration figures to those obtained by other publications and reports with different methodology. Moreover, they are made at least three measurements in each direction of the track (six in total), to undo the effects of wind. For the calculation of averages, not rule-the best and the worst results.
Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h
Even heavier, with a slightly different engine calibration with a horse less power when fueled with gasoline (165 hp versus 166 hp) and an exchange with longer relationships, DS 3 got the better of the 208 GT. Contributed to it the overboost available in DS 3, which raises a few moments torque of 24.5 to 26.5 mkgf with the foot down from the third gear, and the different settings on traction control.
