對於台灣上市的新車而言,6 氣囊加 ESC 車身動態穩定系統幾乎是基本,甚至還有許多輔助駕駛配備。但並非每個地區都有這樣的配置,近期 Ford 一款小車,雖然配備氣囊,但送去撞擊測試,結果慘不忍睹,拿了 0 顆星的成績。

Ford Ka 小車,雖然在巴西相當熱銷,但安全性卻是不及格。

Ka 進行正面撞擊時速 64 公里,以及側面碰撞時速 50 公里,結果連一顆星都拿不到,以「0」顆星收場。 

Latin NCAP 也公布 Ford Ka 的保護成績表現,對車內成人的保護僅 34%,對兒童的保護更僅有 9%,對路人的保護為 50%,安全輔助部分僅 7%。

除了撞擊測試 0 顆星,Ford Ka 在乘員的安全防護上也一面倒的差。

如此慘烈的防護表現,也讓 Latin NCAP 秘書長 Alejandro Furas 看不下去,直言「應該拒絕那些在其他地方提供一流安全配備,但在拉丁美洲卻提供如此糟糕安全配備的車廠」,「Latin NCAP 鼓勵 Ford 盡快將安全性提高到 6 氣囊與標配 ESC,以保護車內成人與小孩。」

對於這次的 0 顆星結果,Ford 也有所回應,承諾將會推出有側氣囊與 ESC 的 Ka。

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Renault Clio. The French supermini is one of the most successful cars ever sold in Europe, with over 15 million units made since the original model came out in 1990.

Renault Clio I

Designed as a replacement for the successful Renault 5, the first-gen Clio was unveiled at the 1990 Paris Motor Show.

In 1991, it won the European Car of the Year title, with jurors recognizing it as the best new vehicle that was launched in the Old Continent thanks to its “remarkable styling, strong quality levels, generous cabin space and unprecedented equipment for a model of this size”.

The RT 1.4-liter five-door variant was equipped with remote central locking, electric front windows and a stereo radio/cassette player. Other versions included the RL 1.2-liter three-door, 1.9-liter diesel, 1.8-liter, 16-valve RSi hot hatch and the 2.0-liter, 148 HP (150 PS) Clio Williams.

Renault Clio II

Production of the Clio I ended in 1998, when Renault introduced the Clio II. Featuring a new design and larger footprint, which resulted in a more spacious cabin, it had larger seats and a suspension tuned for comfort.

The weight was kept in check with then advanced engineering solutions, as some variants featured an aluminum bonnet, composite front fenders and polycarbonate headlight covers.

The Clio was the first subcompact model offered with front side airbags and ABS, and it was also available with seatbelt pretensioners and power steering.

The engine lineup comprised of 1.2-, 1.4- and 1.6-liter gasoline units and a 1.9-liter diesel, as well as the sporty, 170 HP (172 PS) Clio RS. A 1.6-liter 16-valve petrol mill was introduced in 2000, and the rest of the range was eventually upgraded to 16V lumps that provided increased performance and better fuel economy.

In 2000, the second-gen Clio was updated with a revised instrument cluster and standard passenger airbag. In 2001 Renault added even more gear, such as the new bumpers, optional xenon headlights, digital climate control and satellite navigation system, as well as a new 1.5-liter turbodiesel. In the same year, the mid-engined, rear-wheel drive Clio V6 Renault Sport was launched with a Laguna-sourced, 226 HP (230 PS) 3.0-liter V6 engine placed behind the front seats.

More styling tweaks were performed inside and out by 2004, and the Clio RS was turned into the 182, with 179 HP (182 PS) and two chassis options, standard and Cup.

Renault Clio III

In 2005, the Clio II was replaced by the Clio III. The latest iteration came with sharper styling, better interior quality, improved cabin space and more equipment. For the first time it was available with a hands-free keycard and push-button start, alongside an advanced GPS system, active cruise control with speed limiter and others.

The third-gen Clio was the first supermini to score a five-star Euro NCAP rating thanks to its advanced active and passive safety.

An estate version, called the Sport Tourer, was also introduced for this iteration, with a longer wheelbase compared to the regular hatchback, and a new Renault Sport variant was launched with 197 HP (200 PS).

The Clio III was named the European Car of the Year in 2006.

Renault Clio IV

Inspired by the DeZir concept and penned by Laurens van den Acker, the Clio IV was presented in 2012 with a significantly longer wheelbase, new design and technology features such as the R-Link touchscreen infotainment system and full LED front lighting.

The engine lineup included the usual TCe petrol and dCi diesel engines, and the Clio RS came with a 197 HP (200 PS) turbocharged 1.6-liter engine and a six-speed dual-clutch transmission for the first time.

Renault Clio V

The current Clio was unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and entered production last year. It too was awarded a five-star rating by the Euro NCAP car and is offered with modern petrol and diesel engines and the new E-Tech self-charging hybrid powertrain.

Renault’s latest supermini can be had with a 9.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system and 10-inch TFT driver information display and boasts improved interior comfort and space and the biggest boot in its class, at 391 liters (13.8 cu-ft).

Mercedes-Benz has kicked off winter testing of their upcoming EQS dedicated electric SUV with the prototype spotted in Scandinavia. Somewhat confusingly, Stuttgart is using the same model series name (see the official teaser video here) for the sedan and SUV versions of both the range-topping EQS and the mid-size EQE, though that might change by the time they hit the market in 2022. [Updated 12/12/2022]

Dressed in heavy camouflage, the SUV version of the EQS has a fully enclosed grille which is flanked by sweptback headlights. Additional details are hard to make out, but the model has a small air intake and a rakish windscreen that flows into a gently sloping roof.

We can also see a rounded shoulder line, flush-mounted door handles and what appears to be a charging port on the front fender. Other notable features include a relatively small greenhouse and an angular rear window. The model also has a prominent rear spoiler and what appears to be faux exhaust cut outs.

Moving into the cabin, we can see a free-standing digital instrument cluster and an infotainment system that rises out of the center console like on the redesigned S-Class. There are also turbine-style air vents, metallic trim and a familiar steering wheel.

While Mercedes recently teased the crossover, the company didn’t say much about it. However, it will be based on the company’s new electric vehicle platform and could have a range of up to 435 miles (700 km).

Performance specifications remain a mystery, but the sedan version of the EQS is rumored to have outputs ranging from approximately 395 hp (294 kW / 400 PS) to more than 592 hp (441 kW / 600 PS). Those specs will likely carryover to the EQS SUV, but we’ll likely get a better idea of what to expect when the EQS sedan is introduced next year.
