Alpine A110 S: Handles with care in moose test Alpine A110 S: Handles with care in moose test

In the obstacle avoidance test, the 2023 Alpine A110 S proves to be fast and requires the same speed from the driver to manage the power beyond certain speeds

March 13, 2023 – 1 p.m.

There Alpine A110S In the moose trial it comes close to the record, but it also turns out to be a car not to be taken lightly, especially in the first kilometers. It is well balanced and, like few others, it combines considerable power, a mid-engine and a weight of only 1100 kg. The risk, as seen in the Alpine 110 S review it’s not being ready for the speed of the car’s reactions. The test verifies at what speed a car puts the driver in difficulty in the most famous obstacle avoidance maneuver in the world. There Alpine A110S 2023 And the most agile in the slalom and almost the fastest in the evasive maneuver, but with the following considerations. Here is the video of the test produced by the Spanish magazine Km77, which specializes in road tests and tests.


THE moose trial (Or moose test) is based on the ISO 3888-2 standard. In practice, the test driver driving the test car drives up to a constant test speed. When it comes to a point marked by cones swerves suddenly to avoid an obstacle, which could be another car or a wild animal. Before steering, the driver lifts his foot off the accelerator and the evasive maneuver is carried out solely using the steering wheel and with no other command than the intervention of the ESP. The piloting takes place in two phases:

  • obstacle avoidance, carried out at an increasingly high speed in the different tests. This is to check how well the steering wheel, suspension, chassis and tires provide manageable control even in the face of an unexpected obstacle;
  • return to the initial trajectory(a 3 meter wide cone lane) without requiring excessive wheel corrections and without knocking over any cones. They can occur in the event of oversteer (tendency to spin) or understeer (the front wheels slip sideways and the car widens its trajectory), two behaviors of a car having reached its limits of stability;

In this test, the tendency to understeer (the car slides outward, following a wider curve than that drawn with the steering wheel) is exaggerated to limit tire grip when changing direction. In addition to the moose test, the Alpine A110S has been assessed Also in the slalom between the cones at constant speed. Here’s how it went essay Alpine A110S 2023 in the video below.


THE test Alpine A110S it happened with high performance tires Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 twin size (215/40 R18 front and 245/40 R18 rear) and a sports suspension which includes -2cm in height and stiffer springs compared to the standard version. It’s a car that Spanish colleagues have placed high expectations on, trying to break the record of Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y in the same avoidance test. “It’s a car super precise, fast and extremely agile but it should not be underestimated, indeed at a speed of 88 km/h the Alpines rebel: “I turned the steering wheel to see if the ESP was activated and it was not”, comments the journalist, demonstrating that if you do too much, you have to know how to manage this margin of control entrusted to the driver. THE in fact, the test was passed at 80 km/h, a very high speed and just below that of the fastest cars, the two Teslas. Who gets behind the wheel of the Alpine 110 S for the first time should remember that: “if you don’t know the reactions of the car, you have to do a little counter-steering, which can make maneuvering more difficult avoidance.


THE test of the slalom between the cones with the Alpine A110S confirms its agility and almost non-existent roller. “The stability control almost never intervenes, thanks also to the grip of the tyres”. At the end of the test, the Alpine passed the cars already tested by the magazine and finished first with just 21.6 seconds to complete the course.
