Pros and Cons: Proton Persona – Punchy handling, punched out CVT

The Proton Persona might be one of the most exciting-handling cars on a budget. No, I’m serious and this is coming from someone who has very mixed feelings on the Exora.The Persona might be one of those cars that would look great as a sleeper and it even comes with a manual, if you’re the sort who prefers a traditional, engaging drive at the expense of creature comforts.But enough reminiscing over the beauty (and sometimes left leg aching pain) of a manual, most people these days wou

Wait, no 4AT? 2021 Proton Iriz and Proton Persona MC2 might retain Punch CVT

Those who were holding their breaths for the 2021 Proton Iriz and Proton Persona to get a 4-speed torque converter like the Saga, weve got news for you. The Hyundai-sourced 4-speeder might not see duty on the latest update to both models, the MC2 (Minor Change 2).According to our friends at Funtasticko, the Punch-sourced CVT transmission will likely soldier on in both models. However, there will be extensive recalibration of the transmission control unit (TCU). This will most likely improve the

Pros and Cons: Proton Iriz – Excellent ride and handling, but the CVT is a pain

Now in its sixth year on sale, the Proton Iriz has received a number of updates over its lifecycle.The first update for the Proton Iriz came in 2017 when Proton improved the model’s noise, vibrations, and harshness (NVH) levels by reducing the number of engine mounts (from four to three), a revised exhaust set-up, and better noise insulation materials.Subsequently in 2019, Proton introduced a more comprehensive update for the Iriz, this time encompassing a redesigned exterior and updated i

什么,没有4AT?2021 Proton Iriz和Proton Persona MC2或将继续沿用Punch CVT

那些正期待着2021 Proton Iriz和Proton Persona能像Saga一样配备4速自排变速箱的人,我们有个消息要告诉你。这具Hyundai生产的4速自排变速箱,可能不会出现在这两款车的最新MC2改款车型(小改款2)上。根据我们在Funtasticko的朋友所说,这两款车型可能都将继续沿用Punch生产的CVT变速箱。不过,这具变速箱的控制单元(TCU)将会进行大幅的调整。这很有可能会提高这两款车的变速箱响应性和驾驶性能。在这两款车上市时(Iriz在2014年上市,Persona在2016年上市),它们在其它方面都很出色,唯独这具Punch CVT成为了两款车最大的缺点之一。这具变速箱很吵、很粗糙,驾起来很不舒服。Proton的Punch CVT不过,2019年推出的MC1改款车型,确实有了一些改进。改款车型修复了一些小瑕疵,同时还换装了新的外观、新的多媒体系统,并对CVT变速箱重新进行了调校。车主们都认为,这次调整确实提升了变速箱的驾驶性能,但它仍然存在根本性的缺陷。说了这么多,我们还是希望Proton的工程师能更进一步地完善这具变速箱的调校。这两款车型最近频频传出谍照

Deal breakers: Proton Iriz – We love the ride and handling, but the CVT needs to go

When Proton launched the Iriz back in 2014, it received much fanfare as Proton developed and envisioned the Iriz to be a global model – it’s Global Small Car (GSC) codename was proof of that.But the Iriz fell short of its global aspirations – the car was only exported to Indonesia (how many units were sold?) and left-hand drive versions never materialized.Putting aside its global aspirations, the Iriz proved to be a decent alternative to the second-generation Perodua Myvi, as a

2021新款Proton Iriz将放弃差劲的CVT,但它能超越Perodua Myvi吗?

从近期出现的大量谍照来看,2021改款Proton Iriz将是我们明年迎来的众多新车之一,让我们来好好看看吧。有人拍到改款的Proton Iriz了? 前面的车是即将推出的Proton Persona改款 图片来源:The Ajerul是的,实际上,谍照还不止一张,上面的只是最早的一批照片之一。随后,人们又多次在马来西亚看到了它,而且通常它是和2021改款Proton Persona一起出现的。图片来源:Ibrahim bin Ahmed按照正常的做法,改款车型肯定会有造型上的改变,而Iriz的重度伪装也暗示了这一点。别忘了,我们在2020款Proton X50的发布期间也发现了一张有趣的照片,而同事们都觉得它看起来很像即将推出的Iriz。Proton,你在隐藏什么呢?你有多确定它会推出改款? 图片来源:Careta如果上面的谍照还不够有说服力的话,那看看下面这条线索吧。不到一个月前,有人看到了这辆Iriz,车身的颜色是显眼的黑黄色,而这是2020款Proton Saga年度纪念版的配色。在推出新车型前,制造商通常会生产特别版本以清理库存,而这种做法就和这张照片出现的内容不谋而合了

Perodua Ativa(D55L)的CVT要比Proton的好,但D-CVT中的D指的是什么?

首先,即将上市的2021 Perodua Ativa所使用的双模式CVT(D-CVT)和Toyota的Direct Shift CVT是不同的,后者配备了一个起步齿轮,而D-CVT并没有这个。将这一点解释清楚后,我们再来仔细分析一下这具Perodua首次使用的CVT自排变速箱。它有什么特殊的?与使用皮带或钢链的CVT不同,Ativa的D-CVT的特殊之处在于,它同时使用了钢链条和行星齿轮组。行星齿轮组作为钢带的补充,能够给予CVT更直接的动力传递。D-CVT的行星齿轮组D-CVT的工作原理同其它CVT变速箱类似,它在停车起步和低速下使用钢带驱动在低速下,D-CVT使用钢带驱动不过,在中高速下,离合器会接合,此时动力会通过行星齿轮组进行传递,这能模拟出与扭力转换器变速箱相似的驾驶体验。通俗易懂地说,D-CVT的工作原理与Toyota的Direct Shift CVT是截然相反的,其行星齿轮组是在高速情况下使用w的,而不是用于停车起步的。在高速下,行星齿轮组通过离合器进行接合除了减少变速箱的动力迟滞外,D-CVT也能降低引擎的油耗。在这方面,Ativa的官方公布油耗低至百公里5.29公升。

CVT车型真的会更不耐用吗?

CVT的优点已经是众所周知的了:设计简单、节能省油、换挡平顺,并且可以有无限多的齿轮比。因为有着众多的优点,Nissan、Honda和Toyota旗下的城市车型主要使用的都是CVT变速箱。对于CVT变速箱,人们最常担心的是过热和钢带断裂。但这些担忧,是不是真的合乎实际呢?1. CVT变速箱过热热到冒烟的CVT变速箱 图片来源:Zordaq Motorsports N9CVT确实会出现过热的现象,并且会导致CVT变速箱油变质,从而引起其它部件的损坏。同时,高温也会导致CVT传动带出现断裂。CVT过热的原因主要有两个: 车子是为低温地区设计的(通常复新车都是这样的) 车主没有正确保养/缺少保养知识我国的复新车很容易出现这个问题,因为它们多数都是为气温更低的地区设计的。这个问题通常也很容易解决,只要换装尺寸更大的后市场CVT油冷却器就可以了。车子缺乏保养是另一个会引起CVT过热的原因。如果车辆长期没有进行保养,CVT油的散热性能会逐渐下降。甚至还有车主把普通的ATF油加到CVT变速箱里,而这两种油的规格是完全不同的,所以这几乎是为你的CVT变速箱宣判了死刑。定期更换CVT变速箱油 图片来

Now, before you throw a tantrum at the mere mention of CVT, the one fitted to the D55L is very different from CVTs of yore.You see, the Perodua D55Ls Dual-mode CVT (D-CVT) features a combination of steel chains and gear set, vastly different from regular CVTs that utilizes only belts or chains.

2021 Perodua D55L是Perodua旗下首款搭载CVT自排变速箱的车型。不过,虽然D55L采用了CVT变速箱,但这具变速箱跟你想象中的CVT可不一样。Perodua D55L搭载的是双模式CVT(D-CVT),这具变速箱结合了钢带和齿轮组两种传动结构,这与仅使用钢带或链条的普通CVT变速箱有着很大的差别。从机械结构上看,D-CVT和Toyota旗下的Direct Shift CVT都采用了钢带和齿轮组的混合结构,这也是两者唯一的共同点。从实际工作原理上看,这两者也有着很大的差别。推荐阅读:Perodua Ativa(D55L)的CVT要比Proton的好,但D-CVT中的D指的是什么?Toyota的Direct Shift CVT是什么?Toyota的Direct Shift是Toyota在CVT技术上最新的成果,它能够达到接近于双离合(DCT)变速箱的性能,同时又能保持CVT的平顺性和经济性。它在多个TNGA-B平台的Toyota车型上都有搭载,如Toyota Yaris和Toyota Yaris Cross等;同时,它也被TNGA-K平台的车型所采用,如Toyota
