According to popular blogger, a French car after restyling no longer need in manual transmission.
Obzorschik YouTube-channel Z-Drive convinced that the commitment of the majority of domestic motorists to manual transmission – is only harmful, and it showed on the example of the “luxury” complete Renault Sandero Stepway, equipped with a 113-horsepower engine and manual transmission: “In the modern age mechanics it becomes obsolete!”.
To convince the audience that he had to measure the rate of acceleration of a popular French SUV from zero to hundred km/h, but also talk about some of the shortcomings of the “Sandero”, which he is deprived of in his versions with CVT. First and foremost, Renault Sandero Stepway isn’t a button to disable ESP, and this feature is missing even in the trip computer. Also fuel consumption on the “mechanics” significantly higher than the CVT.
Finally the 0-100 km/h, the driver took almost 13 seconds, should be the last argument in favor of the fact that the dynamics of Renault Sandero Stepway “on the mechanics” is poor, because the powerful motor makes the car stalled on the second speed, which enables the limitation of the thrust: “Put the variator and enjoy!”.
