To contrast turbine driving fun but also the Honda Civic / Lamando / Ford Focus

    Driving pleasure is important to you? do you want it? For cars, the "buy" yes meet travel demand, if part-time "delivery tofu" (fun to drive), then all the better. Obviously, most people only afford tofu, tofu can not afford to send. It does not matter, you can be the Civic compact, there Lamando, and Fox can be selected.

    A friend recently asked me, "How the new Civic? I heard that accelerated very fierce." He understood that there is equal to the turbine to accelerate quickly, then there is fun to drive. Insufficiency, not all wrong, cars with small displacement turbocharged engine intended to reduce emissions, rapid acceleration is just one of the side effects, but it is not a bad thing. Admittedly, rapid acceleration is an important part of driving pleasure, but not a direct equivalent, in addition to quick aside, I think it was at least one car, be considered a tacit sense of fun to drive. According to the needs of fast acceleration, it is in line with the Civic, luxury fitness Lamando the wide-body coupe and has been to promote their sports qualities Fox can also be considered, so we put them together-scrape together.

Honda Civic / Lamando / Ford Focus

    Civic, Lamando, Fox All three cars from the price positioning point of view is not direct competition, although the price range there overlapping part, but according to the needs, they can actually competing against. Civic currently only 1.5T models, while Lamando and Fox is crossing the plurality of displacement, to be fair competition we have chosen a more accessible version, 1.4T high-power version of the Lamando, as well as the Fox 1.5T.

Honda Civic / Lamando / Ford Focus

    Although the displacement of three cars approaching, but the engine parameters, but the big difference. Lamando high-power version of the 1.4T engine maximum power of 150 horsepower, than the Civic and Fox 1.5T are a lot lower, but the torque is the largest, reaching 240N · m. Fox 1.5T engine power be the same displacement turbocharged engine in the largest, reaching 181 horsepower, comparable to some of the brand's 1.8T engine, the torque is second only to Lamando 1.4T. In contrast, the Civic's 1.5T engine seems to account for less than what is cheap, power and torque are not the greatest, but it's really the most extensive plains of torque, the limit state may erupt in 1700-5500rpm maximum torque range is quite considerable.

    All three models have their own ideas for the transmission option, the election is the Civic CVT gearbox, Lamando the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox, Fox is a 6-speed manual gearbox. Differences gearbox born, which directly determines the several models have different personalities. Civic gearbox D, S, L three-speed forward gears while Lamando and Fox as well as manual mode.

    This suspension structure very similar to the three models are front McPherson independent suspension, rear multi-link independent suspension. Structurally, the multi-link independent rear suspension indeed compared to non-independent torsion beam suspension advantageous place, but does not directly equate better or worse, the actual effect will depend on the key adjustment.

    Three vehicles equipped with tires are paying more attention to the comfort of the type of tires Lamando of some slight movement. Civic and Lamando is equipped with 17 inches alloy wheels, tire wall thickness relative Bifukesi thinner 16-inch tires, the handling is more favorable. Compared to the three vehicles, Fox tread width is the narrowest, at relatively weak grip, the dynamic performance of the vehicle has a certain impact.

■ everyday driving:

    Everyday driving with the most is the first third of the throttle travel, Lamando behave more calm, to create a relaxed driving atmosphere, so no pressure to drive the vehicle, but also unattractive. If you put the pedal deeper than half, after about 1 second will clear sense of pushing back the emergence of operators throughout the reaction very fast, subjective feeling full of energy, but before and compared the performance gap a little big, you need to adapt. If you switch to S block, dynamic response will be more active, but daily travel seems a bit wasteful.

    This is the inherent advantages of the transmission structure, and traditional automatic transmission CVT is difficult to learn. Under normal circumstances, the transmission will upshift hard as you fuel and money. Whether or S block D block, the transmission can accurately determine the timing of the shift, shift speed and smoothness are good, nothing critical. If you say where is not perfect, that is, when traveling at low speed and gear will be a little frustrated, as well as a slight vibration similar clutch semi-linkage state.

    Lamando steering and chassis tuning is a typical and popular style. Feedback steering wheel steering dynamics will change, but no road feel. Vehicle driver with information obtained from the steering wheel is not much to make the driving experience points deducted points. Suspension tuning Lamando a relatively tough type chassis heavy feeling, while retaining a certain amount of road feel, can effectively filter crushing vibration when cornering support force is also good. But if it is pressed onto the obstacle manhole cover or the like, the body a little shake, and reduced comfort. Fox in this and a bit like Lamando, but a little better, because the tire wall thicker, softer suspension and Civic will be more comfortable.

    Non-rapid acceleration, the Civic is basically the first third of the depth of the throttle can meet the accelerating demand, including within the high-speed running, 120km / h. Such adjustment is very easy to give a good impression, as well as like-minded Fox. Insert a digression, Honda's CVT models, light throttle at low speeds or oil revenues, will gently at Dayton, which seems to be a universal phenomenon, a little uncomfortable.

    If rapid acceleration, then it is a bit difficult, and there is a certain difference between the CVT transmission and the driver's throttle response instruction, even when switching to S stop just a little bit better. Like via a simultaneous interpretation between people and cars, even if the translation go even faster, meaning is accurate, not as a direct dialogue is more fun. Lamando will have a similar situation, but because of the dual-clutch transmission shift faster, so the performance is better than the Civic, while Fox is the dynamic response of the three vehicles in the fastest.

    Civic steering feel worthy of praise, and the steering wheel from the left to the far right just two laps, the car must be less than the other two, or turn the steering is very flexible. The steering wheel is one of the main vehicles of communication, a direct impact on the quality of the driving experience.

    Civic soft suspension tuning than Lamando and Fox are soft, and can be understood as more comfortable to some extent. Encountered rough pavement or some small potholes, Lamando would rise to the bumpy road feel a sense of mild, while the Civic will filter more thoroughly, feeling more bumps from hearing, tires and ground friction collision sound, vibration felt by the body will be less than the number of Lamando. If you feel from the motion or handling point of view, the Civic is no good Lamando, suspension support force worse, and almost touches than Fox, Fox, in fact, the suspension itself is not particularly soft, but thicker sidewall pull hind legs.

    Fox and throttle tuning Civic Lamando more than positive, and Fox for transmission upshift enthusiasm nor the other two cars is so high, accelerating better performance. Although Fox maximum engine power, but everyday driving will not be obvious advantages, greater impact gearbox and throttle calibration differences.

    Fox is equipped with 6-speed manual gearbox, the Civic compared CVT and double clutch Lamando of some moderation seems not particularly fuel-efficient, dual-clutch shift did not so fast. Comparison of the three vehicles, Lamando powertrain tuning and Fox will be the two extremes, Lamando calm style, most sports Fox, Fox also told the Civic line, the latter two are adjusted more interesting.

    Fox has been to promote their sports qualities, really has done some good, but do not exercise are some aspects, such as lighter steering adjustment, completely comfortable orientation. Fox chassis tuning style and Lamando a bit like European car style, and the supporting force is to have a sense of the way, more than the Civic Movement characteristics. If the row order, then, Lamando is among the three most tough, followed by Fox, is the softest Civic.

    If talk of driving pleasure, I feel a little tedious Lamando, throttle and steering feel are unhurried, calm and steady style is hard to lift the spirits. Lamando and Fox chassis tuning are good, the supporting force is better than the Civic, and Fox faster dynamic response, should logically be a good choice. But if Fox and Civic compared to the Civic that I prefer Smart steering performance. If the car can also be customized as like "Girlfriend", a collection of various advantages that nice, but not so much if the world. Can only choose one, open every day walking, I would choose Civic, on the grounds that the Civic has the best steering feel, the second fastest rate of throttle response, soft suspension also Renren it.

■ accelerated test:


    In front of talk is mainly subjective feelings, let's look at some relatively objective data. Tenth generation Civic for a 1.5T turbocharged engine, test drive before I measured acceleration performance of 7.09 seconds, the results are good. This time, when the test temperature up to 37 ℃, accelerate results are not as fast as before, but still a lot faster than the other two cars.

    Although the Civic CVT gearbox can not stand a few times will overheat protection, but the state is good start is the highest speed can reach 2600rpm, the initial action most rapidly. Fox can achieve similar speed, but the front wheel will spin was more powerful, but dropped to around 2100rpm initial results better. Lamando the dual-clutch gearbox has a protective mechanism, not with the brakes, only the throttle foot in the end, the initial minimum speed, 1600rpm about to start, so the start wasting a lot of time. The end result is the Civic leading the way, the final 7.95 seconds to complete the 0-100km / h acceleration.

    Although Fox engine power than Atom crossing large 31 horsepower, but in the 0-100km / h acceleration tests, Lamando achievements only about 0.3 seconds slower than Fox, but also in the 0-400 meter acceleration test, the gap has not significantly enlarged, after the two vehicles segment acceleration similar to that from FIG approximate overlapping blue and green curves can also be seen. Lamando the dual-clutch gearbox shift speed and transmission efficiency than the conventional automatic gearbox Fox's advantage. Although the Civic CVT gearbox case of slow response in the presence of track test drive, but the words than the linear acceleration, the performance is pretty good, it has maintained a leading edge.

■ brake test:


    Although the Civic soft suspension, but because of the short trip, coupled with the low center of gravity design, full braking center of gravity of the amplitude is not too large, body posture is maintained well. Although Lamando and Fox suspension supporting force stronger than the Civic, but due to the long suspension travel, full body posture during braking but not as good as the Civic.

Car03 Honda Civic Lamando Ford Focus

    Overall, the three-car brake achievement gap is unlikely, mainly Fox tire width narrower, so less braking performance than the other two cars of some.

■ measurement of fuel consumption:


    To be fair, fuel consumption tests are run with three cars, and a certain number of kilometers apart rotation driver, try to make the test of objective conditions consistent. However, mileage and the average speed of the final three car trip computer display or slightly different. Test fuel mileage is about 100km, covering urban traffic congestion, fast loop, high-speed road, close to the daily car situation. Civic and where Lamando is still in transition period of transition. Civic has ECO energy saving mode and the engine start-stop function, saving some help. Fox also has an engine start-stop function, but less number of starts the measurement process, of little help. And Lamando with no fuel-related driving mode, only in D block traffic. Civic and Fox can plus 92 gasoline, Lamando to add 95, 95, so simply add together equally.

    From the measured results, the Civic and Lamando ferry trip computer showed an average fuel consumption of both 7.6L / 100km, Lamando measured fuel consumption and fuel consumption was consistent with the table, while the Civic was 8.5L / 100km, fuel consumption is significantly higher than the table 0.9L / 100km. Fox table significantly fuel consumption is 9.0L / 100km, but the actual result is 9.8L / 100km. Compact car home recommended reference value of fuel consumption 8.5L / 100km, Lamando lower than the recommended value of 0.9L / 100km, outstanding performance, the Civic just compliance, Fox high fuel consumption.
