With 421 PS and 500 Nm of torque, the A45 S completes the century sprint in 3.9 seconds, onwards to a top speed of 270 km/h.

To put that into perspective, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 did it in 7 minutes

Is it true that cars with torsion beam suspensions are inferior?

If you drive an econobox, it is most likely using a torsion beam (or twist beam) setup. If you have a “premium “or “performance” car, it is most likely using a multi-link suspension setup. So, torsion beams are clearly the inferior suspension, right? Well, cars like the Renault Megane RS and the FK2 Honda Civic Type R use torsion beam suspension setups. Even the Mazda 3 switched to torsion beam from multi-link, so they might not be so inferior after all. Just like every other technology, the tor

Top-5 reasons why the Suzuki Swift Sport needs to make a comeback

In 2015, Proton signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and Licence Agreement with Suzuki and DRB-Hicom to form a collaboration.

如果你驾的是一辆经济型小车,那么它的悬吊很可能采用的是扭力梁(或扭转梁)结构。如果你驾的是“高档”车或“性能”车,那么它用的就可能是多连杆悬吊了。那么,这是否代表着,扭力梁显然要更加低级呢? 其实,像Renault Megane RS和FK2 Honda Civic Type R这样的车子也采用了扭力梁悬吊。就连Mazda 3都从多连杆换成了扭力梁,看来它们也不是那么低级嘛。 和任何一种技术一样,扭力梁悬吊也有着自己的优点和缺点。 缺点:缺乏舒适性 扭力梁悬吊最显著的缺点就是左右轮不是独立运动的,这是因为扭力梁是焊接到左右两边的下摆臂上的。 与实心车轴(例如Toyota Hilux)相比,扭力梁有更好的弹性,可以通过弯曲减少左右作用力的相互影响。因此,扭力梁可以算是“半独立”悬吊。 不过,真正的独立悬吊(多连杆)在隔离路面起伏上的表现肯定要好得多。 因为左右的作用力依旧会传递,因此后排乘客的舒适性也会打折扣。 通过对扭力梁的多个方面(厚度、焊接点、形状、轴心位置等)进行设计,可以改进扭力梁悬吊的乘坐舒适性。现在,有越来越多的车型在不牺牲乘坐舒适性的情况下,使用了扭力梁悬吊,但扭力梁悬吊

Kereta dengan torsion beam suspension tak bagus? Betul ke?

Jika anda ada kereta bajet, besar kemungkinan kereta tersebut mempunyai tetapan ‘torsion beam’ (atau ‘twist beam’). Jika kereta anda kereta “premium” atau “performance”, ia barangkali menggunakan tetapan ‘multi-link suspension’. Maka, ‘torsion beam’ adalah jenis suspension yang kurang baik lah, kan? Tapi, kereta-kereta seperti Renault Megane RS dan FK2 Honda Civic Type R menggunakan tetapan ‘torsion beam suspension’. Mazda 3 pun beralih dari ‘multi-link’ ke ‘torsion beam’.

As much as enthusiasts such as myself lament the inevitable demise of manual transmissions (MT), there is simply no business case for manufacturers to continue offering a manual option.
