But if you simply want the quietest cabin possible, buy whichever Lexus falls into your budget.
Ahhhh, the quiet revolution
That was when Kylie's career hit the skids.
I wouldn't say it Cathedral quiet, but,it's quiet enough for me,even at three figure speeds (SHHHH!!!!!).
I won't tell! My car's the same. It has a tall seventh gear so you can be into triple figures at under 2000rpm. Max torque has already kicked in way before then, and when there's more torque than a DBS/Gallardo/MP4-12C/458 Italia, it can maintain speed uphill without shifting down, which also means that you can get well over 50mpg at those speeds. I don't drive that quickly so much any more though!
A pushbike doesn't do any of those things.
Put a picture of your car up on here with a copy of Great Expectations on the bonnet.
'Is this a Prius?'
'I feel like we're driving around in a vagina'
Thanks to all, but I found something quite interesting: http://www.auto-decibel-db.com
So it looks like you want a 5.7 Dodge Ram!
But surely along with a car being quiet, there is the quality of the noise to be taken into consideration too. Having said that i am sure a car (truck) with a good old Yankee V8 with pass that test too
A lot will depend on what tyres you have on it. 75% of cabin noise comes these days from tyre roar, very few have wind sealing noises and even a crappy Pug 208 has a reasonably quite engine if you dont thrash it - which sadly you have to in order to get soimply from a to b before it breaks down!
what's life without imagination
Try a Toyota Prius; if not pushed hard all the time it is quiet as the petrol engine shuts down a lot of the time and the JBL Hi-Fi system that was standard on my 2004 model T-Spirit is brilliant.
Missing my Prius - need a new car.
This is what precisely I was searching, the information was overall extremely beneficial for me, thanks a great deal. This is a good post in an intriguing line of material. Thanks for sharing this write-up, terrific way of bring such topic to discussion. car wrap
I do love that you can now get "drive by" db figures quoted on cars now to determine noise levels...maybe its just me but all I can see is crims checking the numbers out so they know which cars to steal to use in the next hit they carry out.....
What about a Chevrolet Volt? It runs on electric power only for most of the time unless you drive vast distances at once (in which case, you wouldn't want one).
