2017 Bugatti Chiron Review
There’s a good reason that the 2017 Bugatti Chiron has such a high price tag. Not only does this vehicle look like a work of art it also has a lot to offer when it comes to engine power and accompanying features. Let’s take a closer look at this beauty and a beast!
The 2017 Bugatti Chiron clearly looks like an art project. A tense and sleek profile has been given to the car due to the horseshoe grille being pushed forward. It has eight LED headlights. On start up all of them tend to illuminate sequentially inward. It features conventional doors. The overall look is aerodynamic which is a must considering the speed this vehicle is able to offer. The company’s logo is at the front and has been centered towards the top.
The underbody tray is flat and has strategically placed air dams. Up front, you’ll notice a system of slats and ducts that offer two-aerodynamic elements. The ducts and slats create a high-pressure zone in the car’s wheels to cool the brake rotors as well as a low-pressure curtain surrounding the front wheel to get rid of hot air. Furthermore, while the large wind present in the back improves downforce, it does get in the way of rearview visibility.
The 2017 Bugatti Chiron offers a comfortable ride because of the perfect seat placement. The seats are electrically adjustable. However, while they aren’t too wide they still offer good support. Furthermore, the steering wheel also adjusts depending on the driver’s reach. The analog dials behind the wheel are clear. For entertainment purposes, it offers a stereo system along with a trip computer. Everything in the cockpit feels streamlined. The interior of the car is lined with high-quality leather and aluminum to keep its weight light while offering the most comfort. You won’t find anything made of plastic in this vehicle’s interior.
The cabin space is a bit limited. However, you do get exposed small door pockets along with each door having a lidded compartment. The center console is a bit thin and doesn’t offer much space except for a smartphone deck. It also has a glovebox.
The 2017 Bugatti Chiron features an adjustable steering wheel. The infotainment system that a lot of other cars have isn’t present here. Instead, drivers are offered a stereo system and a trip computer along with an entire range of analog dials. The speaker’s diaphragms are supported by one-carat diamonds. A mobile can be connected for data sharing, enabling the company to not add in a touchscreen that might not have looked out of place in the overall design. The car seats are electronically adjustable.
