XUV has acceptable body roll buddy. I have taken the car to the ghats and it behaves very decently. Of course, I did not attempt corners like I would do in my Punto, but it did fairly good speeds comfortable.
It was better than the Aria and hence I can assume it would be better than the Storme too (since Aria sits lower than the Storme), but I can confirm once I drive the Storme.
If I go by test drive reports on the net, the XUV is a better handler whereas the Storme rides better. Its upto you to decide your priorities...
But ya it is not bad but only when compared to STORME and ARIA it looks bad but compared to scorpio it is far better but for given price it is nullified in my sense.
As I said, the trade off is better handling. Now if you believe the Storme even handles better than the XUV, I wont debate on that.
and for your information traction and friction are same. |
Sorry buddy, traction and friction are not the same.
Traction is the amount of grip the tyres can provide before it starts slipping. Whereas friction or frictional force is the resistance of motion between two surfaces. Traction depends on friction
. If the co-efficient of friction is high, traction is high and vice versa. Co-eff of friction depends on many things. In this context, it depends on the width of the tyres, the make and design of the tyres and the condition of the roads (dry/wet/gravel/snow etc.)
Point is - premium cars come with high end technology and this enables them to get a good combination of ride and handling. You cannot confuse high tech suspensions to a well tuned suspension.
