Cross against Minivan: Which car is suitable for you?

There are a large number of vehicles on the market and each type has its own positive attributes that a good purchase for certain individuals. There are two types of vehicles, as a rule, to address the same types of people, and they are SUVs and minivans. Many people who buy one of the two types of vehicles are on the lookout for high employment and the machine will try to the best car for your needs. The following sections highlight the attributes and may help people better decide which vehicle is suitable for them.

If people in the market of high host vehicle, they see the SUV and minivan as possible. And in terms of norms, rather than their normal car, the size factor attracts individuals, vehicles of this type. Thus, the size is a strength aspect of the SUV and minivan although the size and capacity ranges from the brand and model.

The concept of family-oriented, it was often associated with minivans in the past. Recently, this concept was also discussed in the cars, because there is more room for regular automobiles just as the minivan can. However, if you buy a car in a family that can operate in other categories, except for family-oriented, and then, perhaps, is exploring to buy SUV is a good idea. Although, if you want to buy a minivan, because it is family, and then a minibus can be better than this man. \

Fuel problems
Another factor that person if they are related to the purchase of a SUV or a minivan, taking into account the fuel mileage. Fuel issues are high on the list of these days because of high gas prices, which seem in recent times. For those who have fuel issues as a serious problem, purchasing a minivan may be the best choice. It can be said that competition between SUVs and minivans in the light of fuel mileage, the minivan to win. If people want better fuel mileage vehicles and minivan is the best choice of the two cars.

Security issues are very important in connection with the operation of a vehicle. Road safety is something that everyone should buy a car. The only problem was the security concerns of SUV rollover accidents. Because SUVs are generally higher than than in most other types of vehicles, which are generally more likely than other vehicles, with sharp curves, the road to move irregularly, etc. On the other hand, minivans tend to have fewer cases of accidents involving SUV rollover.

From a security point of view in relation to the size, can be set off in the most secure in this regard. Because they are generally larger than minivans, their structure will be more capable of coming in a van accident. However, it is important to note that the safety and statistics from the vehicle.

SUVs and minivans, which also purchased a lot of time due to storage. Both vehicles are equipped with large rear components where large objects, as well as many small objects that can be used for transportation. It is difficult to say which car is the best storage capacity as this attribute varies between different types of SUVs and minivans. So, if you look at the vehicle capacity, we can not go wrong with an SUV or minivan.

Environmental concerns
Environmental problems associated with those days. Some people see this kind of issues when it comes to buying a car. If you choose the best car in relation to their environment, a minivan may be the best option in some cases. With minivan uses less fuel than most SUVs, less harmful gases into the atmosphere. This can be stated that minivans may be more environmentally sound than many of their SUV competitors.

When searching for a larger vehicle with a high bandwidth, one can not really go wrong with an SUV or minivan. That decision is indeed a matter of personal preference and the specific properties of the car. Contemplation of the above factors, it can be in a better position, their options and decide whether they want to buy a jeep or a minibus.

Koenigsegg Concept Number

At the Geneva Motor Show 2009 Koenigsegg is a full-scale model of their concept Quant, electric four-door coupe in the NLV PARTNERSHI from the sun, innovative photovoltaic thin FLM to feed the body. The aim is to produce a limited series.

Kvant concept was developed by a Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg NLV supercars in partnership with Solar AG, a pioneer in the field of photovoltaic technology and battery.

Full four-plane model of solar electric car was launched at the Geneva Motor Show 2009, two companies are currently working on the operation scale of the prototype for mass production.

Quantum battery electric vehicles, which are again at full power for only 20 minutes, thanks to the BCC (flow battery energy storage), with a range of 500 kilometers.

Among Technical carbon aluminum chassis / body components and innovative photovoltaic FLM invisible carbon thin lining, body and provides an additional source of energy.

This system also contributes to the development of electric transmission, drivetrain, which simplifies the design and packaging, but only one disk is required.

The total power of 512 hp and maximum torque of 715 Nm, which allows Kvant is 0-100 km / h in 5.2 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 275 km / h.

Given the size of NLV us is abnormally low frontal area of about 2 m square. This, coupled with the drag of about 0.27 CD coeffcient and effectiveness of the BCC is a range of cars.

Dual engine design eliminates the need for a conical or differentiated to further simplify the mechanism and power, and continuous relation to the rear wheels, as well as on the disc and on the coast.

Draft weighing 1780 kg is understandable when you consider that battery, four seats, luxury cars in performance. In part this is due to the installation of two engines, only 140 kg - a remarkable achievement, given the power of 512 hp and maximum torque of 715 nm, the quantum deliver 0-100 km / h for 5, 2 seconds, and press the maximum speed of 275 km / h.

As design director of BMW, more than any other car designer Chris bracelet in the headlines. Not only in the automotive media, but in all media. He made his eloquent controversial design direction for what had been the dean of protected German sports sedan, at the same time, deflect or ignore the criticism more than any other car designer has received.

And now, as he began his last day in the German society (indeed, the last day of work in the automotive industry), the media remind us of their achievements Fiat Coupe, the flame from the X-Coupe surface, the third generation "bracelet-butt "Series 7 and the tissue surface of Gina, the choice of car, away from the sobriety of the 90 principles of design BMW.

But BMW sedan with aesthetics than the mature, and 7-series for a large series, 5 seems to be expanding the series 3, bracelet managed in the management that it is time for innovation and development strategies, regardless of this reaction could be to customers, the management at BMW and other car designers.

This new approach to innovation and change in the monolithic design of the strategy, of course, is the cornerstone of the success of Chris bracelet from BMW. It is the foundation of the brand position today, generation of good design to achieve the identity of cars on the market, and mixed, and the connection lines of cars, the customer better than ever. Nevertheless, all these innovations, and diversification has been achieved while preserving the character design of BMW, the brand kidney grille and four round headlamps Hofmeister kink, front engine rear drive ratios in the total amount of premium sports personality.

But this innovative design, if not a new development strategy has been widely criticized. In addition, nearly half the directors of structures that are critical to approach Chris bracelet for BMW, and they are often strongly criticized. At the heart of this is the view that many of "his" BMW models ugly, ugly or unnecessary aspects of them - 1-Series, X3 and the previous generation E65 7 Series is the most frequently cited examples.
