Reviews Japan. The Honda manufacturer launches a very autonomous car
2021 Honda CRF300L Rally First Look Preview
Honda’s 2020 CRF300L Rally is lighter, more powerful, and better equipped.At its heart is the same 286cc single powering the 300L, designed to provide more midrange power and pull than the outgoing 250L thanks to changes in the intake and exhaust systems. Gearing is changed, shortening first through fifth gears while sixth gear is taller for better cruising performance. The cooling system is optimized to keep temps low in a variety of on- and off-road conditions, and a primary balancing shaft helps to reduce engine vibration. The Rally also gets a slip and assist clutch for smoother downshifts and lighter clutch pull.
Honda launched in Japan the marketing of the first car in the world equipped with an approved level 3 advanced autonomous driving system. Last November,
Honda obtained the green light from the Japanese Ministry of Transport for its "Traffic" system. Jam Pilot ”, allowing autonomous driving under certain conditions, for example when the vehicle is traveling in a traffic jam on a fast lane.
This was the first homologation in the world for a level 3 autonomous driving system (the international benchmark ranges from 0 to 5).
The Traffic Jam Pilot is integrated into the new Honda Legend Hybrid EX sedan, among other stand-alone features. To develop these systems, the group simulated around 10 million models of possible real-life situations and carried out tests on around 1.3 million kilometers of expressways.
How to Test Drive a Used Car
One of the most important steps when you buy a used car is taking a test drive. It doesn't matter whether you're buying from a private party, an independent used car dealer, or even a certified used car from a franchised new car dealership; a thorough test drive is where you find out if the vehicle is right for you. To maximize the value of your evaluation, there are some steps you should take before, during, and after your drive. Being prepared can save both you and the seller or salesperson from wasting time on a car that’s not right for your needs and budget. You also don’t want to spend any effort pursuing a pre-owned car that has serious red flags in its history.
Very limited series
As a precaution, Honda has only released this new model in 100 copies, atimmediately, and exclusively on long-term rental with option to buy (leasing). Price of the car: 11 million yen (€ 85,200).
Perceived as the future of transportation, research into autonomous vehicles is the subject of massive investment by many manufacturers around the world. Honda is also associated with the American General Motors in this area.
However, many regulatory and legal obstacles still need to be lifted before we see cars driving around without a driver, experts say. But road regulations are starting to evolve to allow level 3.
In the midst of accelerated demographic aging, Japan intends to play a major role in autonomous vehicles to cope with the growing problem of road accidents caused by elderly drivers.
