Just had test driven Concorde Cruiser C1 940!
What can I say - I am well impressed! Its 12 speed automatic gearbox works like a a clock and always chooses the right gear depending on circumstances.
Especially I noticed the difference when going uphill - by the sounds of it there was a lot going on in the transmission but one thing that never changed was the speed I was traveling- it just froze where I wanted it to be!
Also I noticed a very short movement amplitude for both the accelerator and brake pedals- which is a big difference to the Scania truck that I took my test in.
Yet the vehicle is very responsive to the pressure applied to the pedals, particularly with the brake- it just slows the 7 tonne truck to a halt in no time if you press a little harder!
A very relaxing drive.
Looking forward to drive my own next time!
