Subaru Outback CVT reverse curb test
This video tests a CVT-equipped Subaru Outback (AWD) and an automatic
transmission-equipped Honda Civic (FWD) on the same 4.5" curb. This video
demonstrates that the Outback vehicle applies inadequate power to the
drivetrain in reverse start/stop situations to overcome the curb. The only
test constraint for both cars was to NOT allow momentum to overcome the
curb. After pressure is applied to the curb with the tires, it doesn't
matter how fast one pushes the Outback's gas pedal to the floor--in all
cases it cannot climb the curb. The civic eagerly climbs the curb, even
after many attempts of trying to get the vehicle to stall on the curb.
