Large cars don't need to have a large turning circle. This is the result of the ADAC in a comparison test of 500 vehicles.
Large cars don't necessarily have to have a correspondingly large turning circle. In a comparison test of 500 vehicles, the ADAC has now found out that vehicles in the upper middle class or the luxury class can be maneuvered more easily than some small cars.
Subaru Trezia is subject to E-Class
At 8.45 meters, the small car Toyota iQ required the smallest space for a 360-degree rotation. But the Subaru Trezia, a small car, had a turning circle of 11.58 meters that was 63 centimeters larger than the Mercedes E-Class Coupé. And the small car Renault Wind needed 11 meters for the turn, the compact SUV Skoda Yeti 10.53 meters. The testers measured the largest turning circle of 13.08 meters on the Fiat Scudo Kombi, a van located above the Doblò high-roof station wagon.
The turning circle of a car depends on the one hand on the wheelbase, i.e. the distance between the front and rear axles. Another decisive factor is how tight the wheel arches are and how far the front wheels can be turned. The ADAC measured the data for the tropics of the test cars at the outermost point of the vehicles. (dpa / tmn)
