The Lithuanian Autoclub of 22 occasions for journalists organizing the "Lithuanian Car of the Year" is the market's most-sold model this year, selected by 33 candidates, announced in a press release. All of them will fight for the other nine special proposals. One of them is the sporting title of the magazine Auto Bild Lietuva.
The most competitive are not the fastest
The titles of this title are not one of the 7 vehicles that can reach 100 km / h. speed This was one of the first tests that the electorate had to overcome. The works of the Volkswagen AG group were dominated by the same 3-liter V6 diesel engine, reaching 286 hp: Audi A6, Audi A7, Audi Q8 and Volkswagen Touareg, and Jaguar i-Pace. .
All 100 km / h The speed was able to reach within 6 seconds and faster, three of these cars: more spacious and larger SUVs. None of them were at the Panevėžys Labor Market Training Autodrome, where journalists, along with experts, looked for the most sporty car that appeared on the market in Lithuania this year and compared the different types of body types.
"The most sporty thing does not mean it must be the most powerful starting point or the fastest one. A powerful engine is good, but there is still something like a power-weight relationship that allows a car to be better or worse. Acceleration, where the best models appeared, they set up very fast right away, but the most sporty thing should fit much more criteria than are power: how accurate and good the car is controlled. How good can a sporting task: For example, go to the slalom track and how will you talk to the driver, "said Vitoldas Milius, editor of the magazine Auto Bild Lietuva.
Surprised those who did not expect anything
The member of the "Lithuanian Year of the Run 2019" Commission also noted that this year's competition for fewer sports cars is happening, more for comfort. Last year, two Korean models competed intensely for this title: the Hyundai i30N, specially designed for recreational tracks and the powerful Kia Stinger integral traction cradle that combines sports driving.
In his words, this year, only one car on the side of the body has the inscription "Sport", which still does not mean anything. However, the management features were surprised by the other cars that drivers acquire to travel daily.
"This year, we focus on management functions. We travel with a wide variety of cars along with our colleagues from the Panevėžys Labor Market Training Center on the road, after which I have done a survey. The commissioners and other colleagues from the sports group mentioned The hatchback: Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Suzuki Swift Sport. The BMW X2 Crossover and the Peugeot 508 Sedan also received great praise for performing performance. These cars were distinguished from the pleasant qualities of the driver. They are far from being the most powerful , but they are perfectly managed. If someone asks me which of the candidates will attend this "Press Encounter" this year, this would be one of those cars. I did not want to run, for example, a large and heavy four-wheel SUV. Different ride, "explained Milius.
The nominee for the most sporty model will be presented on November 29 at the end of the competition "Lithuanian car of the Year 2019", and the three candidates selected will be announced on November 21.
