7 Answers on Volkswagens MBQ by Das.Auto.Magazine

 Volkswagens MQB - modular transverse matrix aka Modularer QuerBaukasten

Hey Guys
Volkswagen recently developed a new Magazine called "Das.Auto.Magazine" and it is available online in the languages english and german. You find there a lot information about the Company and on what they are recently working on.
Just as "7 Questions on the MQB" which explains you the VAG's Modular Transverse Matrix a bit more and I summarized them here for you.If you want to read the original and full article by VW you find the Link below of this Post.

What is the MQB?

If "Modular Transverse Matrix" still sound like Greek to you I would descrive it as a modular platform for, especially in the future, every Car produced by the Volkswagen AG - such as Volkswagen, Audi and SEAT.
As you can see on the Picture above there are several Parts marked and a blue one. The blue is technical identical in every production Car based on that platform and depending on if its a smaller or larger Car the other Parts will be "added" for the length, or not.

The MQB helps cutting down the prices (of Production) and already now a few Cars share this MQB Platform, so as the new Volkswagen Golf 7, Audi A3 Mk3 or the SEAT León. But the number of Cars will grow massively in the future - gasoline powerd Cars, Electric or Hybrid Cars, everything will be possible with the MQB.

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
