the post is from April 2013, I doubt there is a shred of fact to that, not to mention we still don't have official informationAlthough that isn't something that really matters to people who will be buying one of these, it's good to know what it could potentially do in a straight line.
Ok well good luck over taking on the freeway when you put your foot in it and it doesn't go, good luck even merging with highway traffic when you're running out of on ramp.Pedal to the metal! If you were getting this car for good acceleration then you were misguided from the start.
In another thread I was showing calculations that suggest that the CX-3 would be lighter:Is the CX-3 actually lighter? it seems it could be a bit heavier
There are plenty other cars that have worse acceleration that are still road worthy. It seems like a basic requirement of most vehicles for them to be able to merge onto the highway.Ok well good luck over taking on the freeway when you put your foot in it and it doesn't go, good luck even merging with highway traffic when you're running out of on ramp.
Good acceleration isn't merely about performance, condescend all you want, but a lack of acceleration can be a serious safety issue. No one is asking for sub 3 second 0-60, but we do want to be able to merge with highway traffic safely and orderly.
Acceleration may not be your defining metric to purchase, but it certainly can be to NOT purchase...
what are speed limits like on the highways near you?My life flashes before my eyes everytime I try and speed up on an onramp in my Honda Insight...my foot is depressed so hard I think I'll break through...all the while praying some crazy lady who is texting from her leased Mercedes jets up to my slow and ridiculous small engine car and penetrates my car's behind and sends me flying into a ditch........I hate the 1.3 liter engine......maybe if I turn a.C off and put my feet out like the Flintstones car to help it move along, that will solve the near collision from bad lady driver texting and applying her falsies and panty liners in her leased Benz
