The next marathon “60 hours behind the wheel” has ended. In the last two days of the test, no breakdowns and malfunctions were recorded, and on Friday afternoon all three cars participating in the marathon successfully finished. All the details of the event can be found in the material dedicated to the 60 Hours “Behind the Wheel”.
The maximum distance - 6, 347 km (at an average speed of 176 km / h) - over the three days overcame Ford Focus.
Hyundai Solaris lagged behind the leader by more than 500 kilometers (its result is 5, 804 km at an average speed of 168 km / h), and Lifan Solano, due to downtime during the repair, lost more than a thousand (its mileage in three days - 5 284 km). While Solano was in motion, its average speed was generally at the level of competitors - 170 km / h. It is noteworthy that, according to drivers, Solaris always turned out to be one to two kilometers per hour faster than its competitors during races at maximum speed - why didn’t it become a leader (after all, races at maximum speed occupy most of the program every day)? So much lost on the paving stones, or maybe there were some faults not yet voiced by the drivers? All secrets will be revealed by the final article.
Lifan Solano turned out to be the most economical participant (albeit speaking already beyond the classification) - on average, he spent 16.1 l / 100 km. In second place is the Ford Focus with a score of 17.5 l / 100 km. So far, the most voracious was Hyundai Solaris, which spent 19.5 liters of gas for every hundred kilometers. In just three days, the Korean sedan “drank” 1, 129 liters of gasoline versus 1, 109 that the Focus spent (the total amount of Solano consumed gas was incorrect to compare with these figures - after all, Lifan spent most of the first day without traffic, while its competitors almost were constantly on the track).
