Will the new Mercedes-Benz CLA be worthy of showing itself in a moose test?April 4, 2020
As part of this video from the Km77 team, the capabilities of the German 4-door coupe Mercedes-Benz CLA of the current version in the so-called moose test are shown.
To begin with, it is worth mentioning that the moose test is intended to assess how well a vehicle can avoid a collision with an obstacle that suddenly arises in front of it. Complex tests on a specially prepared track involve numerous car wagging, tire grinding, and, in some cases, car overturns. I must say that although all of these somersaults look a little comical, they help to evaluate the behavior of the car in a similar situation on the road.
So, the current generation of the German Mercedes-Benz CLA shows rather mediocre results in this test.
After many attempts to pass the test zone and experiments at the maximum speed with which the car could pass the track without touching the cones, it was concluded that the limit for this car is 66 km / h. As stated in the video, the speed they achieved was a very low result.
The biggest problem seemed to be the bad behavior of the front end of the car in tight corners. Even with a successful attempt to slightly increase the speed, the car began to lose control. In the middle of the video we see the test results of the CLA station wagon, which for some reason showed itself a little better than the sedan. However, the only obvious advantage was the corner entry speed.
