Drivers Perfect Rear Vision

Adjusting your wing mirrors correctly is very easy once you know what to do. Remember it’s always important to check your blind spot before changing lanes!

To avoid uncertain conditions, you need to follow the below tips:

 

1. Too far in:

The view back up the road looks fine, there’s a large blind spot over your right shoulder. If you are on the motorway you wouldn’t be able to see vehicles approaching from behind in the right lane as easily.


2. Too far out:

There’s a risk you will miss cyclists approaching from behind as you pull out of a parking space. It also makes it more difficult to judge distances of approaching vehicles, and to judge where you are when reversing.


3. Just right:

 This mirror is adjusted perfectly in terms of left-right. It’s up to your personal preference whether you angle it slightly further down, but not too much further down otherwise you compromise your view back up the road.


4. Adjusting your mirrors:

Sit back in your normal driving position. Turn your head to the left and right and look in the mirror that’s what you’ll see when you are driving.


5. Rear view mirror:

Set your rear view mirror to give you the best view through your rear window. The three mirrors together cover a large amount of the road behind you.

Transmission of SKYACTIV Technology

Previous we discussed on the SKYACTIV Gasoline engine and Diesel engine, that how an engine works and what were its merits and de-merits. Let’s explore the transmission of SKYACTIV Technology. Today we learn perfect control of transmission with the help of Ideal Transmission.

Here we go…….

Transmission:

Ideal Transmission for Perfect Control

Transmission is critical not only to fuel efficiency improvement but also to a cars driving performance. The “ideal transmission” that gives you perfect control over your car. With this concept, we have developed a pair of transmission systems that promise precise handling as well as improved fuel efficiency.

Thanks to an expanded lockup range of more than 80%, the SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic transmission gives you the direct feel of a manual transmission. The SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission, with its class-leading light weight, ensures a crisp feel when shifting.

We have two different types of Transmission as mentioned below.

SKYACTIV-DRIVE

skyactiv_04

A new-generation highly-efficient automatic transmission that achieves excellent torque transfer efficiency through a wider lock-up range and features the best attributes of all transmission types.

Features:

  • Combines all the advantages of conventional automatic transmissions, continuously variable transmissions, and dual clutch transmissions
  • A dramatically widened lock-up range improves torque transfer efficiency and realizes a direct driving feel that is equivalent to a manual transmission
  • A 4-to-7 percent improvement in fuel economy compared to the current transmission

 

All the Advantages of Conventional Step CVT (continuously variable transmission), Dual Clutch, and Step AT (Automatic transmissions).

Automatic transmissions (AT) can be categorized into three types:

  • CVT: generates various gear reduction ratios with a pair of pulleys
  • Dual Clutch: utilizes 2 separate clutches for odd and even gear sets.
  • Conventional AT: generates various gear reduction ratios with planetary gear sets

 

The key requirements for ATs are “good fuel economy”, “quick start-up” (including hill climbing), “direct feel” and “smooth shifting”.

The table below shows the drawbacks and advantages of each transmission.

skyactiv-drive_02_en

SKYACTIV-MT

skyactiv-mt_01

A new-generation manual transmission with a light shift feel, compact size and significantly reduced weight.

Features:

  • A light and crisp shift feel like that of a sports car
  • Compact size and reduced weight

Technical Aims & Concept

North American and Japanese markets always prefer Automatic transmission Whereas Manual Transmission is dominating in Europe. To meet global demand, two types of MT (“Large” and “Mid” sizes) have been newly developed. The development concept was to create a “light and compact MT with improved shift feel and better fuel economy”. The goal was to achieve an MX-5-like sporty and brisk shift feel.

For a quick shift feel, both a short shift-lever stroke and light shift effort had to be achieved. By pursuing the ideal structure of manual transmissions, 16% at maximum of weight reduction was achieved. Furthermore, internal friction losses were significantly reduced to achieve a 1% improvement in fuel economy.

Quick and Crisp Shift Feel

To achieve lighter shift effort with a short shift lever stroke, the lever ratio must be increased. However, a larger lever ratio reduces the internal stroke. To achieve precise synchronizer and torque transmission even with a short internal stroke, a small module spline is used. skyactiv-mt_02_en

Also, the shift effort gradually reduces through the stroke, providing reassuring resistance as the lever is first pushed, then getting lighter so it feels as if the shift lever is automatically moving into gear. With the current shift lever, shift effort in the select direction (right-left direction) increases with the movement of the shift lever, but with the new shift lever, a stable shift effort is achieved. Binding is minimized when shifting diagonally.

Light and Compact MT

Since the structure of an MT is relatively simple, completely new ideas and logical thinking are required to achieve further weight reduction and higher efficiency. skyactiv-mt_03_en

The triple-shafted gear train with a common gear for 2nd and 3rd was selected from approximately 30 different configurations due to its potential to achieve lightness, light shift effort, high efficiency, and a wide gear ratio. Based on this selection, the lightest structural specifications were selected from over 10,000 alternatives. By reviewing the function of each component, commonization of the 1st and reverse gears was newly adopted.

This enabled the length of the secondary shaft to be reduced by 20%. A common 1st and reverse gear made possible the removal of the reverse idle shaft. As a result, by reexamining gear configurations, the number of components decreased and the gear train weight was reduced by roughly 3kg.

2017 Hyundai Sonata – Redefining the Sedan!!!

The 2017 Sonata continues to define the intermediate sedan segment over seven generations of progress. The innovative design makes a bold statement of confidence and refinement.

Interior

The Interior offers much to enjoy such as an available leather-wrapped steering wheel and 8-inch touch screen navigation with rearview camera. The Sonata has more passenger and total interior space than any other vehicle in its class. The available rear side sunshades are integrated into the door panels, so they’re out of sight when not in use, and can be easily raised by hand.

2017-hyundai-sonata-interior-6

Storage bins are bountiful, and trunk space totals a generous 16.3 cubic feet. Seat-folding levers are located in the trunk. The glovebox and console are deep enough to hold tablet computers. 

Exterior

The new Sonata comes with chrome trimming around the windows, as well as 16-inch alloy wheels. It gives you a choice of either an available power tilt-and-slide sunroof or a panoramic sunroof. The Dynamic Bending Light is designed to turn the headlights with the direction of the curve as you turn the steering wheel. 

2017-sonata-exterior
The Sport and Limited models include a unique front grille, side rocker panels with chrome molding, side mirror-mounted turn-signal indicators, 17-inch alloy wheels and dual exhaust tips, while the Sport 2.0T and Limited 2.0T add 18-inch alloy wheels, quad exhaust and rear diffuser.

Peformance

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata offers three engines across its six trim lines. The standard 2.4L Gasoline Direct Injection(GDI) 4-cylinder engine is mated to a smooth shifting 6-speed automatic transmission for performance and fuel economy in perfect balance.
2017-Hyundai-Sonata-performance
The body of Sonata was constructed using advanced high strength steel forged in Hyundai’s own steel mill. The sonata’s fully independent suspension has been calibrated to provide an ideal blend of handling composure and ride comfort.

Safety

The Automatic Emergency Braking system uses both a camera and radar sensor. Lane Change Assist measures the closing speed of an approaching vehicle in the adjacent lane to determine if changing lanes is safe and if it’s not, gives a warning the driver can both see and hear. 

2017-hyundai-sonata-safety

The available Automatic High Beam Assist automatically switches from high to low beam headlights when an oncoming vehicle is detected. Available distance sensors embedded into the rear bumper make parking as simple as driving. It also includes seven standard airbags to protect you if the unavoidable occurs.

Parallel Parking

Find a space a few feet longer than your car if possible. Confirm the space is legal and check for any obstructions you’ll need to avoid. Slow down and signal as you pull up in front of the space, remaining aware of other drivers.

Here are the following tips to park your car in parallel:

1. Seek out space:

You feel comfortable that you can safely get your car into without crunching into another car.


2. Check your rear-view mirror:

Driver-side mirror as you approach the space to ensure another car is not riding on your tail. Signal toward space as you approach it, slow down, and stop.


3. Check your surrounding:

Use all your mirrors and check your blind spots for cars, bicyclists and pedestrians “BEFORE” you begin to reverse your car.


 4. Straighten out as you finish pulling in:

Turn the steering wheel to the left once the rear of your vehicle is mostly in the space, still going backward.


 5. Pull the front up to the curb and center the car:

Turn your car wheel in correct position and pull into the center.
