BMW M235i failed to pass the “moose test”August 6, 2020
The current BMW M235i has failed to pass the so-called “moose test”, which is an imitation of an attempt to avoid a collision with an animal that jumped out onto the road.
According to the experts of the km77 portal, the M235i model has problems with the passage of an impromptu obstacle course at a speed of 77 km / h, at the same time, the car overcomes it only at 68 km / h. With greater acceleration, the car begins to knock off the chips, which is due to the poor grip of the front wheels with the road.
However, most of this behavior of the German model is caused by the “oak” Bridgestone Turanza T005 tires, which do not provide the necessary grip.
“A couple of times we tried to avoid the cones, while the slow increase in speed caused drifts when we changed the trajectory abruptly,” say the experts.
In addition, it was previously noted that they noticed the concept of the all-electric BMW iNext crossover. It should be emphasized that the debut of the new model of the German corporation is expected next year. There is no information about the cost of new items yet.
