Toyota GT 86 – a front-engine S, which was created by engineers of Toyota and Subaru. It’s based on a modified platform of the Subaru Impreza, and as the only power unit it is offered 2-liter 4- cylinder boxer motor of Subaru “Toyota’s” with the system of injection D-4S.
In this configuration, Toyota engine GТ86 exactly develops 200 HP and maximum torque of 205 Nm. Working in tandem with 6-speed manual transmission, it propels car with weight of 1180 kg, from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 s. The dynamics of Toyota 86 GT with 6 – speed “automatic transmission” is a bit worse – for 8.2 s. At the same time the declared consumption in the combined cycle is 7,8 liters AI-98 for 100 km in for the mechanics and only 7,1 liters – for cars equipped with automatic transmission and Tacoma headlight bulb.
Toyota GT86 has a classic rear-wheel drive and the basic configuration already includes the limited-slip differential Torsen. As for the suspension there are “McPherson” front struts and behind them there is a double wishbone suspension. Another feature of the Toyota GT 86 is the weight distribution, which is close to ideal, 53:47 in favour of the front axle. The machine is equipped with ventilated disc brake; the diameter is 294 mm in front and 290 mm at the rear.
A lot of attention is paid to the development traffic safety of Volkswagen California. In this model, intelligent driver assistance systems are installed that make driving becomes not only safer, but also more comfortable. Improved overview; yes, that at night side light is very useful for the driver; Volkswagen California packaging also includes Side Assist system and the Rear Assist – the first one with the help of radar checks “dead zone” of mirror, and the second – what is behind the car.
The vehicle has a control unit, which receives information about the state of the fuel tank, batteries, water tanks, etc. With regard to the water tanks, it should be borne in mind that the neck of the tank is located near the fuel tank cap and be attentive.
Volkswagen California can be converted into different modes of driving. Inexperienced drivers is recommended to use «auto» mode, more experienced, depending on the circumstances, may translate car in modes «parking», «off road», etc. Another handy feature is the ability of the car to go down during the landing of the passengers and to climb for further drive.
Stepping off the assembly line, the car already has some protection. Body is covered with primer, on top of which a special paint is applied. However, after drying in both of these layers capillaries and micro pores are formed. In addition, standard enamels haven’t chemisorption properties, in other words, are not capable to form a chemical bond with the metal to which it is applied. It leads to the fact that between the ink layer and the body bubbles are formed. The size of the water molecules and aggressive chemicals is small enough so that they penetrate through to the capillaries. In the microcavities their interaction with the metal begins, which leads to corrosion, firstly low and then highly damaging to the housing. In such a situation, there is nothing left but to protect your car by applying a protective coating.
For this purpose, there are special polymeric coatings produced in the form of polishing pastes, liquids, and aerosols. Their application to the body can be performed by yourself or in car services.
