Subaru is one of the brands and manufacturers of smaller cars the motor world. Their annual sales during the last financial year have exceeded by very little the million of units. Compared with the 10 million of the Volkswagen Group, we can see the scale of the actual signature eastern. However, this size may not deceive us, because Subaru with the financial support of Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd and only your name is already a guarantee of success.
For the signature of the constellation of Taurus, to continue to grow, in the leadership of the company decided a while ago to create your own modular platform. With it, they would save time and development costs when they have to replace their models. Therefore, put their hands to the work, and after a lot of effort and money already invested have list its Global Platform.
This new base has already made its debut public in the new generation of the Subaru Impreza. The compact model of the japanese firm has become a revelation in terms of safety and driving pleasure. The first thing we know this because has passed the demanding safety tests from the IIHS, but the second thing we will have to verify it when we have the opportunity to try it out.
As stated by the firm, the new modular platform has been focused on two main axes. The first is the safety and second driving pleasure. For it to become a reality have worked very hard to create a solid and very resistant to bending and torsion. As we can see in the photos, you can vary the distance between the axles to accommodate other larger models.
in Addition, the base hides an ace in the sleeve. Is one of the first modular platforms of the world we can integrate in his bowels several mechanical options. Unlike the MQB of the Volkswagen Group, which has had to be re-designed to accommodate hybrid models or electric, the global platform of Subaru, since its conception, was intended to integrate these mobility solutions without having to tweak any of its parts.
in Addition, this new basis should allow for better sensations at the wheel. The first information we have is that reduces its center of gravity in 5 mm. Your torsional strength is increased in 70 per cent and the coefficient of energy absorption in the event of an accident has increased another fantastic 40 percent. For this to be so, have been modified several aspects such as the fixing of safety bars or sway in areas designed for that purpose.
All of these characteristics paint very well-a product that by itself should be more than good. We are looking forward to testing the new generation Impreza to corroborate that the new modular platform from Subaru is a marvel of the technique.
