Smart CDI -29C cold start
8th December, 2009. Novosibirsk, Russia. Cranks pretty good, but baaaarely
starts... Smart fortwo says "leave me alone, dude". ABS and ESP freezed,
which is why there's a warning light on the dash. The steering is very hard
at the beginning due to freezed suspension. I used Liqui Moly diesel
antigel, whis is the best in my oppinion, although a bit pricey.
2015 Ford Mondeo Premium Equipment
The four-door Mondeo Hybrid combines a specially-developed 2.0-litre petrol
engine with an electric motor and 1.4 kWh lithium-ion battery to provide
optimised fuel economy and CO2 emissions of 99 g/km.
Fuel-efficiency and emissions are improved across the Mondeo powertrain
range by up to 14 per cent, supported by features including drag-reducing
Active Grille Shutter.
The all-new platform and body structure is enhanced with Electric Power
Assisted Steering for the first time on Mondeo, and an optimised anti-lock
braking system also helps reduce stopping distances by more than 1 metre
from 100 km/h (62 mph).
"With a body structure that's 10 per cent stiffer than the previous
generation Mondeo and handling-enhancing technology that includes Torque
Vectoring Control, this is the most responsive and versatile Mondeo yet,"
Stronger body with advanced materials
The all-new Ford Mondeo uses sophisticated materials and production
techniques to deliver greater strength and improved safety with reduced
weight and enhanced sustainability.
Also helping deliver body structure weight savings of up to 115 kg for the
1.5-litre EcoBoost model is a
recycled Front Energy Absorber, Ford's first design to meet pedestrian
protection requirements in both the U.S. and Europe. The 1.5-litre EcoBoost Mondeo weighs 25 kg less than the
previous generation 1.6-litre EcoBoost model, with 80 per cent of weight
savings re-invested in technology to support enhanced fuel efficiency,
lower CO2 emissions, improved safety and better comfort.
"The weight saved during development has been carefully re-invested into
fuel-saving features such as aero-shields and Auto-Start-Stop technology;
comfort and convenience features; and a stronger and safer body structure,"
Koesters said. "We've improved the strength of safety relevant areas by 40
per cent, and verified the performance with thousands of computer
simulations and more than 180 real-world crash tests."
The Mondeo body structure features 61 per cent high strength steel.
Bake-hardened steel is used in the roof structure to reduce weight by a
further 0.5 kg.
Further structural developments include:
An anti-roll bar uniquely designed to limit transmission travel in a
frontal impact, minimising steering rack movement
Sill rocker panels made of martensitic boron steel for improved side impact
Bumper crash cans optimised for energy absorption and harmonised with
chassis rail characteristics
A flanged front cowl design that allows for flex under impact to increase
An integrated rear underbody wheel-arch-to-rail connector that increases
torsional stiffness by up to 25 per cent compared with a traditional design
Comfort, convenience and safety technology
An advanced version of Active Park Assist featuring Perpendicular Parking
enables drivers to detect suitably-sized parallel parking spaces and
reverse hands-free into spaces and is supported by Park-Out Assist, which
helps drivers to exit parallel parking spaces. Side Parking Aid also warns
drivers of obstacles to the sides of the vehicles, as well as to the front
Mondeo also will enhance comfort and convenience for drivers with features
including first-in-class power-adjustable, memory-equipped steering column,
Ford Multi-Contour Seats with unique Active Motion massage function, and
Ford's SYNC 2 connectivity system.
Segment-first enhanced MyKey technology will enable Mondeo owners to
programme a key - usually for younger drivers. MyKey now can inhibit
incoming phone calls as well as restricting the top speed; preventing
deactivation of driver assistance and safety features; reducing the maximum
volume of the audio system, and disabling the system altogether if driver
and passengers are not using safety belts.
Superior refinement, design and quality
Road noise reductions of around 3 decibels in the rear and 2 decibels in
the front have been achieved with integral link rear suspension and
additional sound deadening material, while wind noise is reduced by 8 per
cent to levels previously only experienced in the premium segment.
Mondeo delivers best-ever quality and craftsmanship for both the refined,
elegant, sporty and highly expressive exterior, and the interior that
features optimised ergonomics and comfort, with premium finishes and
Produced at Ford's state-of-the-art plant in Valencia, Spain, the all-new
Mondeo will feature a sports coupe profile with low roofline and
incorporate a retractable panoramic glass roof for the wagon bodystyle. The
lean side-profile is sculpted to convey "visual lightness," while the
sophisticated and technical front end design features Ford's more prominent
trapezoidal grille, a power-dome bonnet and adaptive, slim-line, laser-cut
