Topic: skipping the sunroof
Posted: Friday, September 28, 2018 2:43:47 AM
What does the writer mean here by skipping the sunroof?

The STI also has more front-seat headroom (assuming you skip the sunroof) and a bit more than 2 inches of extra rear legroom, while on the other hand the Focus RS has almost an extra inch of rear headroom.

Does it mean assuming you ignore the sunroof?

What does " core the wire is exposed " mean here?

The source of the problem, according to Toyota, is an engine wire harness coming into contact with the cover, causing an electrical short circuit and potentially starting a fire. The issue affects an estimated 192,000 examples of the Prius from the 2016 through 2018 model years in the United States, all of which are being called in to have those wires checked. If the core of the wire is exposed, it’ll be replaced with a new wire harness assembly with a protective sleeve. If the wire core is found not to be exposed, technicians will install protective tape instead.

Does it mean the core of the wire is bare without any protective layer?

Thanks for your answer. I got the main idea.

What does the phrase " its own version " mean here?

“We do not need to shout about the fact that this car is the electric version [of the next 208], said Vidal. “The [EV] powertrain will complement the 208 range, rather than become its own version.”

Does it mean its main version (or the only version available)?

Ok, thanks for your help.

Does it mean that people will consider Tiguan as a more classy option (compared to cheap SUVs) and will buy it more and that's the way it increases VW's income?

What does the phrase " helps the company’s bottom line " mean here?

It seems buyers after cheap FWD family SUVs don’t see Volkswagen as their brand of choice, which no doubt helps the company’s bottom line, if not its throughput.

Does it mean that don't seeing VW as their brand of choice have a negative effect on VW sales?

What does the phrase " make up to 25 percent of the company’s vehicle parts by weight " mean here?

The new 980-megapascal ultrahigh tensile strength steel is part of Nissan’s plan to reduce the CO2 emissions of its new vehicles by 40 percent by the year 2022, compared to 2000. The automaker aims for the steel to make up to 25 percent of the company’s vehicle parts by weight. In the new QX50, for example, it makes up 27 percent of the construction.

Does it mean that this new steel constitute 25 percent of the weight of the vehicle parts?
