Nissan Rasheen
The NISSAN RASHEEN is a small SUV with four-wheel drive capabilities produced from November 1994 to August 2000 by Nissan . A prototype was first shown at the October 1993 Tokyo Auto show. It was offered with three different inline-four engines : from the original 1.5-liter GA15DE , to a larger 1.8-liter SR18DE , and finally a 2.0-liter SR20DE in the Rasheen Forza. The car has five seats and a rugged, quirky and angularly styled body. It is a very small and short four-wheel drive that is often compared to Eastern European cars in design, particularly the Wartburg 353 , but is also reminiscent of Nissan's "Pike" cars (Be-1 , Pao , Figaro , and S-Cargo ). As for the Be-1 and Figaro, Rasheen production was carried out by Nissan's specialist subsidiary Takada Kogyo. It was exclusive to Nissan Japanese dealership network called Nissan Red Stage . The Rasheen shared its platform with the Nissan Sunny (B14) , including adopting the chassis NB14

Toyota RAV4
The TOYOTA RAV4 is a compact crossover SUV (sport utility vehicle ) produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturer Toyota
Toyota
. This was the first compact crossover SUV; it made its debut in Japan and Europe in 1994, and in North America in 1995. The vehicle was designed for consumers wanting a vehicle that had most of the benefits of SUVs, such as increased cargo room, higher visibility, and the option of full-time four-wheel drive , along with the maneuverability and fuel economy of a compact car . Although not all RAV4s are four-wheel-drive, RAV4 stands for "Recreational Active Vehicle with 4-wheel drive", because the aforementioned equipment is an option in select countries. In most markets, the RAV4 is the only compact SUV or crossover available from Toyota. In other markets, it is the crossover counterpart of the Toyota

Clutch
A CLUTCH is a mechanical device which engages and disengages power transmission especially from driving shaft to driven shaft. In the simplest application, clutches connect and disconnect two rotating shafts (drive shafts or line shafts ). In these devices, one shaft is typically attached to an engine or other power unit (the driving member) while the other shaft (the driven member) provides output power for work. While typically the motions involved are rotary, linear clutches are also possible. In a torque-controlled drill , for instance, one shaft is driven by a motor and the other drives a drill chuck

All-wheel Drive
An ALL-WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE (AWD VEHICLE) is one with a powertrain capable of providing power to all its wheels, whether full-time or on-demand. The most common forms of all-wheel drive are: 4×4 (also, four-wheel drive and 4WD) Reflecting two axles with both wheels on each capable of being powered. 6×6 (also, six-wheel drive and 6WD) Reflecting three axles with both wheels on each capable of being powered. 8×8 (also, eight-wheel drive and 8WD) Reflecting four axles with both wheels on each capable of being powered. Vehicles may be either part-time all-wheel drive or full-time: On-demand (also, part-time) One axle is permanently connected to the drive, the other is being connected as needed Full-time (also, permanent) All axles are permanently connected, with or without a differential

H-point
The H-POINT (or HIP-POINT) is the theoretical, relative location of an occupant's hip : specifically the pivot point between the torso and upper leg portions of the body — as used in vehicle design, automotive design and vehicle regulation. The H-point
H-point
can be measured relative to other features, e.g. h-point to vehicle floor (H30) or h-point to pavement (H5): a vehicle said to have a "high H-point" may have an H-point
H-point
that is "high" relative to the vehicle floor, the road surface, or both. Technically, the measurement uses the hip joint of a 50th percentile male occupant, viewed laterally, and is highly relevant to national and international vehicle design standards such as global technical regulations (GTR)

Manual Transmission
A MANUAL TRANSMISSION, also known as a MANUAL GEARBOX, STICK SHIFT, N-SPEED MANUAL (where n is its number of forward gear ratios), STANDARD, MT, or in colloquial U.S. English , a STICK (for vehicles with hand-lever shifters), is a type of transmission used in motor vehicle applications. It uses a driver-operated clutch engaged and disengaged by a foot pedal (automobile ) or hand lever (motorcycle ), for regulating torque transfer from the engine to the transmission; and a gear selector operated by hand (automobile) or by foot (motorcycle). A conventional 5-speed manual transmission is often the standard equipment in a base-model car, while more expensive manual vehicles are usually equipped with a 6-speed transmission instead; other options include automatic transmissions such as a traditional automatic (hydraulic planetary) transmission (often a manumatic ), a semi-automatic transmission , or a continuously variable transmission (CVT)

Wheelbase
In both road and rail vehicles , the WHEELBASE is the distance between the centers of the front and rear wheels. For road vehicles with more than two axles (e.g. some trucks), the wheelbase is defined as the distance between the steering (front) axle and the centerpoint of the driving axle group. In the case of a tri-axle truck, the wheelbase would be the distance between the steering axle and a point midway between the two rear axles. Wheelbase

Curb Weight
CURB WEIGHT ( American English
American English
) or KERB WEIGHT ( British English
British English
) is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables such as motor oil , transmission oil, coolant , air conditioning refrigerant, and sometimes a full tank of fuel , while not loaded with either passengers or cargo . This definition may differ from definitions used by governmental regulatory agencies or other organizations. For example, many European Union manufacturers include the weight of a 75-kilogram (165 lb) driver to follow European Directive 95/48/EC. Organizations may also define curb weight with fixed levels of fuel and other variables to equalize the value for the comparison of different vehicles

Saab 9-2X
The SUBARU IMPREZA (SECOND GENERATION) is a compact car manufactured between 2000 and 2007 by Subaru in Ota, Gunma , Japan . As with its first generation predecessor , Subaru split the range into four-door sedan (GD series) and five-door hatchback (GG series) body variants; the firm did not carry forward the previous coupe style. Mainstream versions received naturally aspirated 1.5-, 1.6-, 2.0-, or 2.5-liter flat-four engines , with the performance oriented "WRX" and "WRX STI" models uprated to turbocharged versions of the two latter options. Like most Subaru models of similar vintage, all-wheel drive tended to be offered as standard in export markets, with front-wheel drive also available in Japan. Introduced as the "New Age" Impreza, the polarizing headlamp styling divided critics who were quick to designate the model as the "bug eye" Impreza

Interference Engine
An INTERFERENCE ENGINE is a type of 4-stroke internal combustion piston engine in which one or more valves in the fully open position extends into any area that the piston may travel into. By contrast, in a non-interference engine the piston does not travel into any area into which the valves open. Interference engines rely on timing gears, chains, or belts to prevent the piston from striking the valves by ensuring that the valves are closed when the piston is near top dead center. Interference engines are prevalent among modern production automobiles and many other 4-stroke engine applications; the main advantage is that it allows engine designers to maximize the engine's compression ratio . However, such engines risk major internal damage if the piston strikes the valve(s) due to failure or poor maintenance of the timing components and/or camshaft (s)

Australasian New Car Assessment Program
The AUSTRALASIAN NEW CAR ASSESSMENT PROGRAM (ANCAP) is a car safety performance assessment programme based in Australia and founded in 1993. ANCAP specialises in the crash testing of automobiles sold in Australia and the publishing of these results for the benefit of consumers. ANCAP provides consumers with transparent advice and information on the level of occupant and pedestrian protection provided by different vehicle models in the most common types of crashes, as well as their ability—through technology—to avoid a crash. Since 1993, ANCAP has published crash test results (as of 2015) for over 515 passenger and light commercial vehicles sold in Australia and New Zealand . Vehicles are awarded an ANCAP safety rating of between one and five stars indicating the level of safety they provide in the event of a crash. The more stars, the better the vehicle performed in ANCAP tests

Turbocharged
A TURBOCHARGER, or colloquially TURBO, is a turbine -driven forced induction device that increases an internal combustion engine's efficiency and power output by forcing extra air into the combustion chamber. This improvement over a naturally aspirated engine 's power output is due to the fact that the compressor can force more air—and proportionately more fuel—into the combustion chamber than atmospheric pressure (and for that matter, ram air intakes ) alone. Turbochargers were originally known as TURBOSUPERCHARGERS when all forced induction devices were classified as superchargers. Nowadays the term "supercharger " is usually applied only to mechanically driven forced induction devices. The key difference between a turbocharger and a conventional supercharger is that a supercharger is mechanically driven by the engine, often through a belt connected to the crankshaft , whereas a turbocharger is powered by a turbine driven by the engine's exhaust gas
