Maybe, in day-to-day non-emergency lane switches, it does handle brilliantly.Of course Autocar say it handles brilliantly, because that's what the skeleton review file that they got from Porsche said...
all fair points, Kris.If you don't think VW's advertising spend has any effect on reviewers, then I've some apartments in Bulgaria I think you might like...
I read German too, and the sad thing is that not even their own press is as sycophantic to the German car industry as the British are.
Elk test is a pretty well known evasion test.. This site has stirred up trouble before by performing some extreme tests, and they rolled a Jeep Grand Cherokee a couple of years ago, which even if it was overladen, it should not have happened.
Porsche sell the Macan as a performance vehicle. Stable handling in extremis should be part of that. Especially at the price premium over its Audi sibling. This test, which is not done at high speed, shows the last-resort anti-topple system kicking in on a flat road with minimal provocation. It shouldn't happen; cheaper vehicles pass the test just fine.
We were about to see another rollover, it's only an electronic rescue system that stopped it.
That KM77 channel features a lot of cars, some of quick like the Macan seem to get screwed over by the driver aids.Were they done at the same speed? The Porsche looks like the electronics threw a paddy despite the chassis most likely having it covered.
That's the thing, there's sometimes an argument for a collision over a sudden swerve. I've seen crash tests of cars that take corner collisions and they often do far worse than a good solid head on wallop.Youtube is full of moose test fails that make the Porsche one look really tame. Best advice if you're in a big 4x4 pick up would be just hit the moose because if you swerve there's no knowing where you'll end up, you'll probably take out the moose anyway, along with Benny and Bjorn who are coming the other way.
If you're in an old A-Class, just don't go around corners. Ever.
