Mazda MX-30 performs well in moose test

The Japanese crossover Mazda MX-30 received satisfactory marks from the Italian site – the car was able to cope with the “moose test” at speeds up to 74 km / h.

Specialists from the Italian site, who are checking cars for the possibility of passing the “moose test”, this time checked the Japanese crossover Mazda MX-30. I must say that from a safety standpoint, the all-electric MX-30 performed pretty well.

For the uninitiated, the “moose test” shows how well a vehicle performs evasive maneuvers by simulating cases where an animal, such as a moose, suddenly appears in front of the vehicle.

The compact electric car was able to show good results at speeds up to 74 km / h. The machine has not hit a single cone.

The crossover could easily pass this test at a speed of 75 km / h, if not for the first overturned cone. This was enough for the Japanese MX-30 to get a satisfactory rating.

Experts who conducted tests with the Japanese novelty separately noted that the electric crossover turned out to be quite manageable. But a large number of various electronic auxiliary systems at high speeds did not help to control the car at all, but rather the opposite.

A Mazda CX-30 of similar size, albeit lighter, performed similarly in the moose test, also managing the test at 74 km / h. In comparison, the CX-30 and MX-30 performed better in the moose test than the new generation VW Golf.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a compact crossover Mazda MX-30 appeared on sale. Sales of new items began at the debut car market for the brand in Japan. It is noteworthy that the debut was a hybrid, not an all-electric version.
