Video: 8 Car Innovations In March For Russia
In the first month of spring, Russian dealers are waiting for several interesting car novelties at once. Some of them are updated versions of models very popular on the market, while others are just debuting and competing for buyers. We chose the most interesting new items of the month.
BMW 2 серии Gran Coupe
BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe in Russia it will be available with two petrol modifications: the 218i with a 3-cylinder 1.5-liter engine developing a modest 140 hp, and the charged version of the M235i xDrive with a 306-horsepower 2-liter turbo four. The basic motor will be set only with a 7-band "robot" and front-wheel drive, and the "hot" modification - with an 8-speed "automatic" and all-wheel drive. Starting price - 1 990 000 ₽.
Chery Tiggo 8
Flagship Chery tiggo 8 built on the modular T1X platform, developed by the Chinese manufacturer in conjunction with Jaguar Land Rover. A similar chassis is already used on the Tiggo 4 and Tiggo 7. In Russia, the seven-seater crossover will be available in a single modification: a 2-liter turbo engine with 170 horsepower, a variator and front-wheel drive. The price is decent - from 1 699 000 ₽… But for this money you can even look at SkodKodiaq …
Probably one of the most anticipated new products of the year - a restyled Hyundai solaris… The model received a new grille, headlights, hood, bumpers, lights and wheels. The interior features a large 8-inch infotainment screen, new central air vents and updated trim. Under the hood - well-known gasoline aspirated: 100-horsepower 1.4 liters and 123-horsepower 1.6 liters. They work in tandem with a 6-speed "mechanics" or "automatic". Price from 760 000 ₽.
Compact crossover sales KiSeltos on the Russian market will start on March 3, but prices were announced at the end of January: minimum - 1 099 900 ₽, maximum - 1 999 900 ₽… At first, the model will only be sold with a 2-liter 149-horsepower aspirated petrol, CVT and front-wheel drive. Later, there will be modifications with a 1.6-liter 121-horsepower or 123-horsepower gasoline "aspirated" (power differs depending on the type of drive) and with a turbocharged 177-horsepower engine of the same volume. The base engine can be paired with a 6-speed "mechanics" or "automatic". Top - only with a 7-speed "robot". By the way, we have already traveled on the new Seltos!
Another long-awaited "new thing" - a restyled liftback SkodRapid… Despite the fact that the manufacturer has not yet disclosed detailed information about the equipment and prices, it is known that the model will have a multimedia system with a free-standing 6.5 or 8-inch screen, a new heated steering wheel, heated windshield and a number of other options. The basic version of the liftback will retain a 1.6-liter aspirated gasoline engine, which will be aggregated with a five-speed manual transmission. Base price - 829 000 ₽.
ToyotCorolla updated very nominally. The model received a chrome frame for the window sill and two new colors: red and beige metallic. A multimedia system with support for Apple Carplay and Android Auto is now available in the equipment of the model starting with the Comfort trim level. The power plant is the same: a 1.6 liter gasoline engine developing 122 horsepower. It is combined with a mechanical six-speed or variator. Price - from 1 214 000 ₽.
Volkswagen passat survived the restyling and, unfortunately, remained on the Russian market only in the form of a sedan. The model is offered with two petrol turbo engines: 1.4 and 2 liters, power - 150 hp. and 190 forces, respectively. Both are combined with a 7-speed "robot", but in the basic version the junior motor can be ordered with a 6-speed "mechanics". There will be no localization of the model in Russia: all new Tradewinds are imported, from Germany. Hence the price - from 1,829,000 ₽.
A couple more models that will appear at dealers very soon
About the new Chinese crossover Geely coolray so far it is only known that it will be imported to Russia from China, and this currently may delay the start of sales a little.The car will be available with a 1.5-liter engine with a capacity of 150 or 177 hp. The turbotron works in tandem with a 7-stage "robot". Front-wheel drive only. The price of the new item is still unknown.
