Top 5 small off-road worthy Crossovers reviewed
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Wikipedia says, "a crossover is a vehicle built
on a car platform and combining, in highly variable degrees, features of a
sport utility vehicle (SUV) with features from a passenger vehicle,
especially those of a station wagon or hatchback." We simply like to say
that the crossover is the new family truckster. Here are the Top 5 off-road
worthy crossovers that we've driven in 2011.
AWD vs RWD vs RWD
Subaru Legacy AWD vs Ford Mondeo FWD vs Volkswagen Passat FWD & ASR vs
Mercedes 320 S RWD & ASR
Nissan Patrol CRAZY HILL CLIMB!
... More at http://www.offroaders.com ... This Nissan Patrol nearly bites
it but with some quick thinking, throttles it up as it rights itself!
AWESOME!! Location near Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Subaru All Wheel Drive Traction Testing
Symmetrical. All-Wheel Drive. Control the road.
You need balance and an even distribution of power for maximum traction,
instead of the slip-then-grip alternative. Every Subaru comes standard with
Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for better stability, efficiency and a quicker
response to slippery conditions.
Touareg 80% incline
From the Frankfurt Motorshow 2009. Grade labelled as 80% at the location,
which is approximately 40°.
Subaru AWD test vs. Honda, Toyota, and Volkswagen
Our team toured the Subaru plant in Indiana. This video shows the "Roller
test," which very impressively demonstrates the difference between Subaru's
AWD and that of the competition. The leader in All-Wheel Drive technology,
there are no other vehicles quite like Subaru. See for yourself right now!
