The blogger explained why Renault Sandero Stepway inferior LADA XRay Cross

Unlike Togliatti competitor, “French” and not nearly pulls for the price of one million rubles.

Raised hatchbacks — a controversial form factor for the car. Let the machine in such a body and increased ground clearance, it has no space in the cabin, nor patency of the crossover. However, cross-hatchback continue to come out, and the French Renault Sandero Stepway loses LADA XRay Cross, which he explained to the blogger YouTube channel Autospot.


The cost of the basic “Stepway” starts from 830 000 rubles, the top package costs 1 000 000 rubles. XRay in the “base” is cheaper than “French” — 784 900 rubles, but the maximum grade is also costs about a million. As prices on the best equipment of both cars together, it would be logical to compare them to the “maximum speed”.


In the top-end performance and “Sandero” and “Iccrea” there is one and the same 1.8-liter engine producing 113 HP, which residents have borrowed from the French. Despite one motor car traveling in different ways: due to the fact that the LADA is heavier, its acceleration to “hundreds” comes in 12.5 s, 0.5 seconds slower than the Sandero Stepway. Models also share the same CVT for two, produced by Jatсo.


The third detail you share with each other the “Stepway” and “Cross” — platform B0. However, for the running machines are much stronger than the motor or transmission, as the engineers of “AVTOVAZ” to seriously work on suspension XRay. With the front suspension the manufacturer has installed an L-shaped levers, which improve the controllability of the machine.

On the rear wheels of the Russian cross-hatch are disc brakes, while the Sandero — “drums”, despite the fact that he, too, is worth a million rubles in the “top”. Plus French cars in this sense the softness of the suspension. The only thing that can bring inconvenience to the driver — wheel, which fly strikes on the irregularities in the rest of the suspension gradually “eats up” all holes.


Comparing the equipment of two cars, the Frenchman losing almost everything: no heated steering wheel, armrest, sub-floor in the trunk, rear view camera etc. the Only thing that can boast the “Stepway” four, and not two as Lada, airbags and remote engine start.


The expert noted that neither the LADA XRay Cross, nor Renault Sandero Stepway does not show any dynamics. The difference in driving characteristics is that improvements in the suspension of “Lada” went in her favor, so that the machine is operated much better than “French”. In addition to the suspension, this helps MDPS and more accurate feedback on the steering wheel. The “Sandero” same wheel just heavy and does not give any connection.

Thus, it becomes evident that Renault Sandero Stepway is not competitive even in comparison with the best model of “AVTOVAZ”, but it shares the same engine, transmission and platform.

The conditions of this deconfinement remain “confined” to only the material aspect

How can we not be surprised, if not really disconcerted, by certain conclusions from the Prime Minister’s message? What about the vision of the human being that we are? Certainly the economic situation is serious and no one can say how we will react in the aftermath of this crisis. But is man reduced to the economic dimension only, as the measures taken show? (…) What do we do with the deeply human dimension of a spiritual being for whom the cultural dimension and the cult dimension are essential dimensions which give meaning to life on earth. To ignore this is to ignore a whole dimension, the whole value of each human being. Couldn’t churches, mosques be opened to meet the spiritual thirst of many of us? The religious world has shown respect for the law and extreme attention since March 15; today we don’t know. The conditions of this deconfinement remain “confined” to the only material, economic aspect, ignoring what makes the value of each person. They still appear as an abuse of power. And image, once again, of our consumer world and undoubtedly of a certain secular attitude, which mark our time.

Handwashing is one of the best remedies for coronavirus, World Health Organization (WHO) Director General Tedros Adan Gebreyesus said at a briefing in Geneva. Video recording published on Twitter.

“One of the best tools is one of the most fundamental: hand washing,” said Gebreyesus. According to him, this measure is one of the most important for protecting not only from COVID-19, but also from other diseases. He recalled that on May 5, WHO decided to celebrate World Hand Hygiene Day.

At the same time, Gebreyesus added that millions of people in the world cannot practice this precaution. According to him, in the world less than two-thirds of medical facilities have equipment for washing their hands, and 3 billion people do not have soap and water in their homes.

To stop the coronavirus pandemic, you need to “dramatically increase investment in soap, access to alcohol-based water and cleaning products,” concluded Gebreyesus.


“It is early to open the restaurants, before we must protect our team and our customers”

For years it has been the loose verse of French gastronomy and Mauro Colagreco has again distanced himself from the position of the guild Gallic of haute cuisine launching a message of prudence in the face of the lack of confidence demanded by his colleagues, led by Alain Ducasse. “It is still early, there is no need to open to open, putting our customers and teams at unnecessary risk”, said the chef from Mirazur, current number 1 in the world according to the 50Best list, in an online chat with students from the Basque Culinary Center. Colagreco, who is part of the chefs association that last Monday set out his demands in a gallery of the newspaper ‘Le Figaro’, revealed that he has preferred not to sign the letter.

Mr President, help us make this terrible ordeal an opportunity to invent a better world in which living is a pleasure. Reopen the restaurants », 17 members of the French Culinary College were demanding Among which are some of the most prestigious professionals in the country, such as Ducasse himself, Éric Pras, Yannick Alléno or Anne-Sophie Pic. They also set out a series of commitments to food security and social distancing that would allow the blind to be lifted with certain sanitary guarantees.

However, Colageco believes that “if too many restrictions are put in, it may not be worth opening because it will not be attractive to customers”. In his opinion, when the confinement is finally lifted “the customer will be much more sensitive when choosing” and he maintains that “the economic factor is not going to be the only one that will guide their consumption.” In this sense, although he acknowledges that it is difficult to predict the mood of the public, he ventures that “customers will leave less, but they will prioritize quality in those outings.”

Aware that the request for lack of confidence of his colleagues is also a cry for financial help For a sector that is drowning due to social distancing, Colagreco recognizes that “the economic situation is terrible, but it is even more terrible for people to become ill, first of all we must protect the people who work with us and those who visit us. In his case, the crisis comes after an epic year in which he has achieved the third Michelin star and the world number 1, which has provided him with “a cash surplus that allows us to survive for a few months assuming 100% of the salary of our template”.

The chef of Argentine origin currently manages 14 restaurants in Europe, Asia and America, of which the vast majority remain closed, except for the Au Basier du Mitron bakery, the Pecora Negra pizzeria and the Carne hamburger, which operate thanks to home delivery. In his talk with future professionals, Colagreco urged them to «To be flexible in order to react quickly to crises and to be creative in seeking new business formulas». Despite its catastrophic consequences in the short and medium term, he stated that this crisis “will bring opportunities for new gastronomic businesses.”

Meanwhile, he and his Mirazur team cook twice a week for the hospital in the border town of Menton and for the homeless in the town. “We all have a commitment in the situation we are experiencing, and the stars or the awards only increase that responsibility, because the world looks at us and we must set an example.”


Fernando Alonso explains why his cycling team project was frustrated



Fernando Alonso, “A lover of bikes”, Indurain and the time trial, explained his frustrated project a few years ago to create a cycling team. «The project was as it was. We thought about making the equipment on our own and worked properly until we reached a dead end funnel. Forming a World Tour team is not easy, it is not cheap, ”he confessed.

«To form a team you need certain riders and times that do not always correspond to the times of the sponsors. You need to file all the paperwork before June but cannot speak to any broker until August. You start paying your dues without having brokers and that is difficult to explain to a new sponsor. It was much more complicated than it should be, “he said during a live meeting on Instagram with the former cyclist and technical director of the Vuelta a España, Kiko Garcia.

During the meeting, Alonso also said that he felt “renewed energy” to face his next sports projects, although without being very clear about his future goals: “I have nothing in mind. In the short term I can be clear, in the medium term I begin to not know it well, without focusing, and in the long term I cannot see myself 10 years from now. I’m more to see how things happen, “he said.

«In 2018 when I left F1 I needed that little step behind because I had been traveling non-stop for 18 years, with stress, with the pressure of always doing it to the fullest, with the implication of being a pilot or athlete 365 days a year. These two years, 2019 with the WEC and the Dakar and this 2020 at home like everyone, I have renewed energy, it is as if I was 23 years old again and I am full. This encourages me a lot for future projects ”, he stated Fernando Alonso.

«I was a bit buff last week, with fever, discomfort and muscle pain. I don’t know what it was. I lowered the intensity of the sport I was doing, but it is also a mental thing too, ”he confessed as well, although without giving it much importance or relating it to a possible case of COVID-19.
