秋遊必備 SUV 多用途運動四驅車
Cruise into Fall

坊間很多人都會誤認了 SUV 為 MPV。MPV 即多功能休旅車,具高載客量,可坐 7 人或 8 人;由於 SUV 外形與之相近,同屬休旅車,故有時會錯把 SUV 作 MPV。但其實 SUV 屬運動車,具備越野四驅能力,最明顯的分別就是不設趟門。
Because SUVs and MPVs sometimes look similar, people often mistake the two types of vehicles. An MPV, or multi-purpose vehicle, can carry 7 to 8 people. Both can be considered recreational vehicles, but the SUV is actually a sport utility vehicle, which features 4-wheel drive and is designed for off-roading on rough terrain. But the most obvious difference is that an SUV never has a sliding door.

F-PACE 外觀跑車味十足,用上全新家族識別進氣格柵,與最新的「Coupé-like」側窗線條,搭配短前懸、長後懸的車身比例,勾勒出跑車輪廓。而半圓弧形搭配橫向線條的LED尾燈,加上砂板散熱口的標誌性造型,更表明它與 F-TYPE 之間的關聯。此外,F-PACE更是Jaguar第三款使用全鋁合金D7a智慧型底盤的汽車,全車高達 80% 的車體結構以新型高強度再生鋁合金打造,抗扭剛度達 20,000m/deg 水準。

Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Coupé

[row custom_class=””]
[col-md-8]
[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]G[/dropcap]LE 450 屬 AMG Coupé version,馬力極高,達 367 匹,採用 3,000cc 發動機,由 0 至 100km 的加速只需 5.7 秒,並且可自行調校避震的軟硬度。

雖說它是一架傳統的四驅車,但亦有其不傳統之處,就是車身不高,相信是 Coupé Version 之故。但它跟大部分的AMG車一樣,變速器有不同的設定可供選擇,在 Sport+ 模式中,其喉聲未有跟 GLA 差不多,於 Downshift 時能聽到澎湃的發動機聲,不單是聲音,其加速及彎道性能令人產生在駕駛超級跑車的感覺。

其 Four-wheel Drive 功能亦沒有讓人失望,在調高了避震後,即使在爛路上走仍能感到其動力之充沛,在高斜度的路面上表現仍十分理想。回到正常路面,其 0 至 100km/h 加速所需的時間的確很接近官方提供的數據。凡此種種都令此車變得十分討好,如果想要一架有跑車感覺的四驅車,GLE 450 AMG Coupé 應在考慮之列。
