[Mazda][Subaru] how is the different between those two? hello everyone.
welcome to my channel. today, I am going to talk about how it AWD different between Subaru and Mazda? they are often said that the way of making cars is totally the other way around. but how? first of all, what is AWD?? it stands for ‘all-wheel-drive’. drive is the power supplied by the engine to wheels to make the vehicle move. two -wheel drive describes vehicles that allows two wheels to receive power from the engine. 4-wheel drive means the engine supplied power to all four wheels. for instance, a carriage is … 2WD. In 4WD car, the tires stick to the ground steadly. This system is good for use in low-traction conditions, such as off-road or on snow or ice. In a high-horsepower car, it even helps you accelerate faster. Difference of car structure Subaru’s structure is symmetrically laid out in a straight line. Due to its superior weight balance, 4 tires can be provided engine power evenly. On the other hand, Maxda has a transverse engine system. It’s not symmetrical though. So Mazda takes measures to fix the problem, We talk about it later. The concept is not the same Subaru applies their own techniques through race activities into stock cars. They take the performance under poor conditions seriously. Driving performance in a rough or slippy road is very high level in the world. Subaru has 4 AWD-system-line-ups. Most of Subaru customers tend to purchase a AWD car. JINBA-ITTAI is the key concept of Mazda. It means oneness between car and driver. However, they also have great techniques to drive off-road. All Mazda line-ups have same performance.(except for Roadster) Many cuctomers buy 2WD cars at Mazda. In the history, Subaru made a 4WD store car for the first time in Japan. Mazda Rally Team won the Swedish rally race as the very first Japanese car. Driving performance This video makes you clear how driving performance works between Subaru and Mazda. This is Mazda CX-5. The car is trying to climb on slippy, steep, wet ground. Unfortunately, it failed. Here is Subaru Forestor. You can see that the car has great ability to climb on such a rough ground. How awesome Forester is! Speaking of handling, Subaru engine is located lower than other cars. due to horizontally-opposed Subaru Boxer engine. Because of its superior weight balance, the moment of inertia is low when turning and braking. so the driver can enjoy the good handling. Compare to Subaru, Mazda doesn’t have futures like Subaru. What enhancing the capability of handling is electronic control. It’s called G vectoring control and i-ACTV. Steering angle brake fluid pressure gear position external temperature slipping of tires, tilt of a car, degree of acceleration this system considers all of these elements and controls the car. Now-style it is! Subaru works hard to provide power to 4 wheels evenly as possible as they can. Mazda’s i-ACTIV minimizes torque sent to the rear wheels so that it contributes to great fuel economy. Price and fuel economy Here, let’s compare side by side with CX-30 and XV. Mazda CX-30 20s AWD model ¥2,629,000 fuel economy WLTC mode 14.8km/l Subaru XV 2.0e-S eyesight ¥2,871,000 fuel economy WLTC mode 15.0km/l For what kind of people? Subaru cars are for people who like driving any kind of road conditions. people who live in snowy region. people who want to have a full-blown 4WD layout car. people who want to have one of the world’s best performance. or want to feel good-quick response handling. They must buy a Subaru car! You can also choose a different mode in a different condition by yourself. Subaru car has so much potential! Mazda car is a high-intelligence car. people who live in not extremes of climate area people who want to enjoy driving in the city or… people who want to have a 4WD car with a diesel engin. people who like feeling natural handling Thanks to GVC, you don’t need to worry about driving skills. Even I have poor driving skill, I might be a good driver! … Hopefully? Instead of that, you can’t control settings. You can enjoy driving under the limit situation. All right, How did you like this topic i provided today? Now that you mention it, I remember that I used to go snowboarding with Legacy touring wagon when I was younger. I definitely had a great time with the car! The car worked well under snow condition, of course. In addition, I never felt tired EVER. What was happening? I sacrifice lots of costs though… Thanks for watching!
