AL Autos Booth (BIAE 2018) (Day 2)
2018 AL Autos Quaestus (Shown: RGLE, RGXLE, and RGS)
The Quaestus was designed to stand out from the common commuter car as this is meant to bring some fun to your daily drive. The front fascia has been designed to be aggressive (but not too aggressive) with our angled and modern styled headlamps and DRLs, the fitting nose grille which leads your eyes directly to fitting and sexy grilles and vents at the bottom of the fascia. From the side, the body has been shaped to flow with the fixtures from front to rear. Onto the rear where the Quaestus gets a sleek brake light design with the bar brake light that completes the look of the rear end. From any angle, the Quaestus looks properly aggressive. The 3 trims of the Quaestus weigh in anywhere between 3742 lbs (1697 kgs) to 4193 lbs (1902 kgs).
The Quaestus has a choice of 2 drivetrains:
Available on the RGLE and RGXLE trims is a beefed up version of the 2.0 L Turbocharged 4-cylidner engine found on the Irev producing 205.6 HP and 194 lb-ft of torque sent to the front wheels and mated to a 7 Speed Advanced Automatic transmission + Electric LSD.
Available on the RGS trim is an all-new 3.2 L Twin Turbo V6 producing 329.7 HP and 323 lb-ft of torque sent to the rear wheels and mated to a 7 Speed Dual Clutch transmission + Electric LSD.
To help put the Quaestus put the power down, the RGLE and RGXLE have medium compound tires and the RGS has specialized sports compound tires.
To help the Quaestus come to a stop, all trims come with solid disc brakes that vary in size depending on the trim.
Finally, to absorb the bumps, the Quaestus comes equipped with Double Wishbone (F) and Multilink Rear Suspension systems with air springs, adaptive dampers, and active sway bars tuned specially for each vehicle.
All of these systems help the Quaestus (especially the RGS) perform well on the track:
The Technology + Safety
The Quaestus features some nifty technological features to help make your drive a more comfortable experience. The RGXLE and RGS trims come with AL-Infotainment complete with a push to talk voice command system, satellite navigation w/ real time traffic, AM/FM/USB radio, and AL’s WorldConnect system which allows the user to make reservations at hotels and restaurants and check the weather at any location. In addition, WorldConnect now also has a function in accident response/prevention system, standard on all trims. The prevention side of this system includes rapid flashing hazards, automatic braking assist, blind spot monitoring, cross traffic alerts, and door opening warnings in case of incoming traffic that may endanger the passenger exiting the vehicle. The response side of this system activates in the case of airbag deployment/substantial impact: Hazzard lights are turned on, multiple airbags are deployed, engine is on standby and can turn on when start button is held for 5 seconds, brakes are applied, and WorldConnect automatically contacts emergency services. Other nifty additions include automatic dual climate control standard on the RGXLE and RGS, a HUD standard on the RGXLE and RGS, and heated seats standard on the RGXLE and RGS.
