New Opel Astra

Opel Astra Elegant and smooth contours of the body, dynamic movement, excellent handling, comfort and absolute control over the traffic situation. This beauty lies in the heart of the new model Astra, designed with love designers and engineers cleverly designed. Creating the Opel Astra, the engineers wanted to use the most advanced and achieve the ultimate technological innovations to provide exceptional handling, economy, dynamics and safety. Coordinated work of all systems geared to the fact that driving was a complete pleasure for you. The exterior design of the new five-door body Opel Astra – miraculous symbiosis expression and the avant-garde – decided in the general style of innovation Adam Opel AG. For the first time in the provision of a car of class entered Adaptive Forward Lighting AFL (Adaptive Forward Lighting): the direction of the headlights is adjusted automatically in Depending on the steering wheel angle and vehicle speed Opel Astra. Comfortable and spacious interior of the new Opel Astra is equally convenient and city driving, and – to travel long distances. The rear seat – with folding backrest.

On the passive safety guard – full-size front and side airbags, pedals PRS, detachable in a frontal collision. In the main console – multifunctional widescreen display. Radio wave, microclimate, tire pressure … read more about his new Opel Astra! Gamma engines the new Opel Astra provided high-tech 4-cylinder 16-valve petrol engines ECOTEC / TWINPORT: 1,4 – (90 hp..), 1,6 – (105 hp..), And two 1.8-liter 125 horsepower developmental and 140 hp Through the use of advanced design solutions, Astra engines meet the strictest standards of eco-promising EU, and different high fuel economy. Transmissions – five-speed manual, four-speed automatic, and – mechanical Easytronic automatic control clutch. In any mode of motion the new Opel Astra guarantees 100% control. Holding for 1.5-2 seconds working pressure in the brake system, the system HSA (Hill-Start Assistant) will allow you to confidently start to any mountain. Adaptive chassis IDS Plus (Interactive Driving System) eliminates roll in corners by modifying working parameters of various elements connected together multiplex data bus CAN.

Pressing one button only Sport, located on the center console will give you access to this active driving: the reaction engine when using the accelerator will be more sensitive, feedback on the steering wheel – more pronounced. If you combine the versatility of a sedan hatchback with amenities, what do we get? This is a brand new Astra Sedan. It truly the best of what there is in the automotive world – and this is another leader in its class vehicles built by Opel. You can uvizhet some more interesting and, from my point of view, the competitive ability of models to this site. Get behind the wheel of the new Opel Astra. This is more than just another car. Whether you prefer the sporty GTC, a stylish five-door model, the original four-door Sedan, Caravan or universal masterpiece of design wizards OPC – you get the open the door to the world of energy and passion. The new Astra has been successful, but the advantages it has much more. A new series of powerful and efficient engines, modified style front bumper, radiator covers and headlights, new materials Processing of salon and a host of other improvements – all this makes the Astra is so easy to drive. The future is now. Do not waste your time.

Electronic Braking System

Robust, tenacious, "fast" brakes, shorter stopping distances – an important element of active safety. However, if during emergency braking force developed by the brake mechanism will exceed the force of traction, the wheel lock, car will skid and turn into uncontrollable projectile – the kinetic energy can be deployed with the removal of the car to the opposite side, or even take a roll and flip. For prevent similar situations in modern cars use Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) – Anti-lock brake system (ABS) that provides a metered braking force. Sensors on all four wheels continuously measure angular velocity of rotation of the wheels. If the individual wheel speed suddenly drops, the control electronics sends a signal about the danger of blocking.

The pressure in the corresponding line of hydraulic brake system immediately drops and then rises again, a little before reaching the border, beyond which begins locking the wheels. As a result, even when emergency braking is stored stability and control car. The operating principle of the ABS was patented by the specialists of "Bosch" still in? 1936, however, the first ABS appeared only in 1978, first at the "Mercedes S-Class, and then on "BMW" 7-series. Boshevskoe innovation eventually caught on so that today the security standards of many countries provide for mandatory availability of in-vehicle ABS. However, the ABS should not be seen as a panacea, many forgiving driver error.

Its use has a number of nuances. First, we must learn not impulsively a few times, push the brake pedal. Secondly, on a slippery road, pressing with a force on the pedal, you should not just let it go up. Third, in non-road conditions (Powdery snow, gravel, sand, etc.) the stopping distance may even increase in comparison with conventional braking systems. In addition to the ABS there are a number of similar or complementary systems to ensure effective inhibition in different situations. Among the most notable should be noted:? – A system of emergency braking – Brake Assist (BA, BAS, PA, PABS, EBA – different manufacturers have different acronym). If necessary, emergency brake on their own increases the pressure in the brake line, making it many times faster than a man can do. Significantly reduces the time for braking action of the machine settings. A very good thing, considering that in an emergency situation, about 90 percent of all drivers are not able to perform emergency braking. – A system of dynamic control over braking – Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), EBD, etc. Accelerates and enhances the process of growing pressure in the brake actuator in the event of Brake and provides insufficient force at the pedal – the minimum stopping distance. The highlight is that the electronics actually increases the impact of man on the brake pedal – that failure efforts pedal adds extra meters of braking distance, which often has tragic consequences .- Electronic braking system – Electronic Braking System (EBS) and analogues: ECB, Brake by Wire, etc. In fact, an electronic pedal. None mechanical connection with the brakes. All the processes managed by electronics on the basis of performance of many sensors. In Europe, the presence of anti-lock system is a prerequisite for selling new vehicles. In Russia, unfortunately, we just go for it.
