Volkswagen Passat failed moose test

Specialists tested the versatility with the help of a moose test.

Experts from the Italian portal 77km tested the Volkswagen Passat station wagon, which debuted this summer. Recall that during this test, the stability of the machine is studied during a sharp maneuver to avoid an obstacle on the road. If during the test the car gets on the external wheels, leaves the test area or is demolished, then this is considered an unsatisfactory result.

For testing, 77km specialists used a Passat R-Line equipped with a 2.0-liter 190 hp diesel engine. The transmission is the DSG gearbox.

Testing showed that the car is able to pass the test zone at a maximum speed of 73 km / h, but already at around 76 km / h the station wagon goes into a skid.

Experts pointed out that a similar problem was identified in the single-platform Arteon, which passed the moose test two years ago.
