  7. Four popular high-tech models...

[YesAuto preliminary audit] Electronic handbrake was only used in luxury cars before. With the development of the times, this high-tech configuration is gradually extending downwards. The principle of electronic handbrake is similar to that of mechanical handbrake, only through electronic control. The device locks the rear wheel, so the handbrake control button can also be reduced to a small control button, saving volume. In emergency situations such as the brake pedal failure, the vehicle can be stopped by turning on the electronic handbrake, and the computer will automatically adjust the braking force And to avoid the danger of wheel locking. Of course, it also has shortcomings. For example, this function cannot be used or cancelled if the battery is dead, but after all, the probability of this happening is very small.

At present, the models equipped with electronic handbrake are gradually increasing among the models under 300,000. The high-tech of the past is now also equipped on the models that ordinary people can buy. The four models introduced today are not only equipped with electronic handbrakes. Other convenient comprehensive performances are also good. Models with AUTOHOLD can also realize the function of automatically enabling the handbrake when the vehicle stops.

FAW-Volkswagen Magotan

Among the medium-sized cars, Magotan is a more typical technical model. Volkswagen introduced advanced foreign technologies into the country earlier, such as advanced TSI engines, ultra-long laser welded bodies, and the electronic handbrake that will be introduced today. Many Volkswagen fans hailed it as the “shen car”. Compared with competitors, its body size is slightly compact, and there is no advantage in terms of interior space. This kind of inconsistent “national conditions” restricts its sales to a certain extent.

After the introduction of Magotan in China, the electronic handbrake, which is a little technological content, has not been reduced, and has been left intact. Many people have also learned about the electronic handbrake through Magotan. Magotan's electronic handbrake button is located on the left side of the steering wheel. When parking, you only need to gently press this to turn the parking brake to start. With the AUTOHOLD function, you can achieve more functions, especially when parking and other red lights.

One of the technological configurations of the electronic handbrake Magotan, the TSI turbocharged direct injection engine and the DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission are its more important housekeeping magic weapons, in addition to the familiar 1.8TSI and 2.0TSI engines, the 2011 models The 1.4T engine added by Zhongxin adds new vitality to the model, and the price is further reduced. Although the power is not as strong as the first two engines, the gearbox is also “downgraded” from a 6-speed DSG to a 7-speed (less torque). But it has reached a good balance in terms of fuel consumption and power.

Magotan's maneuverability is also well-known among medium-sized cars. The 2.0TSI+DSG model achieved a 0-100Km/h acceleration time of 7.43 seconds, and the 1.8TSI model achieved a satisfactory result of 8.2 seconds.

The 2011 Magotan has undergone some appearance and configuration upgrades. The 2.0TSI model upgraded the tire width from 215mm to 235mm, and replaced it with 17-inch wheels; the interior was changed from the old-fashioned peach wood to a more elegant dumb. Light color. Since Magotan’s wheelbase is only 2709mm, it is at a disadvantage among similar cars. In order to solve the compact rear space of Magotan, the 2011 model also added the rear VIP function, which relieved the problem of cramped seating space to a certain extent.
