5 Tips To Drive Safe On Hot Days

These recommendations are ideal to handle when temperatures are too high.

With the arrival of summer, it is common that in many regions of the country the temperature rises considerably, which favours a warm climate. Obviously, this heat is not only felt outdoors but also felt in the car. It is proven that the interior of the vehicle can reach temperatures of more than 60 degrees Celsius; this excess heat causes the air actuated take more time to lower the temperature.

These high temperatures in the car’s interior not only make driving uncomfortable but also reduce the concentration and responsiveness of those behind the wheel. Therefore, the risk of suffering an accident increases considerably.

Faced with this situation, some measures must be taken in order to prevent the interior from getting too hot:

Hot Days Driving Tips

1.-Since the crystals in addition to letting the sun’s rays increase the temperature, it is best to ink the windows and/or place a sunscreen on the windshield. In any case, try to park the car in a shadow, or in the opposite direction to the sun’s rays.

2.-It is also advisable to leave the windows and the panoramic roof slightly down in case the vehicle has it. Once we start our tour you have to turn on the air conditioning and lower the windows completely for a few moments so that hot air accumulates.

3.- Another thing that is advised is to use a sleeve or apply sunscreen in case the sun’s rays are facing the left side, to protect the skin from UV rays.

4.-As much as there is too much heat outside, it is advisable that the temperature of the air conditioning is around 21 degrees Celsius. In addition, the interior of the vehicle should not be cooled too much so that there is no great difference when leaving the car, as it can cause respiratory problems. Also, it is best to direct the air upwards and not to the head or body.

5.-Regardless of the air conditioning, it is very important for hot trips the intake of liquids (water and tea) avoid dehydration.

New Luxury Toyota Avalon 2019

One of the versions of the new Avalon has a 3.5-liter V6 engine, combined with an automatic gearbox 8-speed Direct Shift-8AT (UA80E) TNGA and the second by the Toyota Hybrid System (THS II) ) four-cylinder Dynamic Force 2.5-liter electric motor with 650 volts (A25A-FXS) and continuously variable transmission (CVT).

According to the experts of the brand, the V6 derived from the TNGA develops more power, with less fuel consumption, due to the application of direct injection D-4S, in conjunction with a variable valve control system VVT-iW (Variable Valve Timing-intelligent Wide).

The VVT-iW system is used in the intake cycle, while the VVT-i (Variable Valve Control – Intelligent) is activated in the exhaust.

By using the VVT-iW, the engineers ensured optimal torque generation at any engine speed and minimized pumping losses during the closing of the intake valves, further improving energy efficiency. The use of the Atkinson cycle, too, reduces the fuel consumption of the V6, especially in cold climates and during deep acceleration situations.

With regard to the Avalon Hybrid four-cylinder and 2.5 liters, it is considered as an energy efficient system, which operates cleaner and generates more power compared to previous versions, thanks to the implementation of technologies such as the dual VVT- i with VVT-iE (intelligent variable cam system by electric motor); Direct injection D-4S (petrol engine of 4-stroke direct injection Superior version) and valve seats with laser coating, among others.

This system uses two electric motors – MG1 and MG2 – that supplement the charge of the nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) battery of the hybrid system, while the MG2 helps the engine.

The interior of this Toyota of large size stands out among many elements a screen of 7 inches s, where you can see information about the vehicle, satellite navigation, and various vehicle settings including those corresponding to alert lane departure with assistance in the steering, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, blind spot monitor with traffic alert crossing at the back and front display screen.

The Toyota Avalon 2019 seems a very attractive vehicle, loaded with technology and with many systems that provide comfort to the driver and occupants, but we will hardly see in Mexico.
