Video: New Grant Or A Used Foreign Car: What To Take Instead Of Lada?
Lada Granta is the main bestseller of the Russian market. It is inexpensive, new, practical and, to be honest, dear. A real workhorse! But what if the machine is needed for more than just work? What if there is no desire to play the lottery and wonder if the Grant being bought is among the quality collected? Anyway, if you really want a foreign car! You need to look at comparable used foreign cars. Yes, this is also a lottery, but the winning looks more elegant.
LadGrant or Hyundai Solaris
A wedge is knocked out by a wedge, and one bestseller of the Russian market - by another. At the price of the new Lada Grants, you can now buy a Hyundai Solaris of the previous generation, and the car will be after restyling and in a decent (by the standards of the class, which is also higher) configuration.
Like the car from Togliatti, Solaris is available not only in the sedan body. But this does not mean that the budget Hyundai can be both a station wagon and a convertible - no, you only have to choose between a sedan and a hatchback. With regard to engines and gearboxes, Solaris is also simple: either 1.4 liters or 1.6; either mechanical transmission, or "automatic". Since the owners do not notice much gain in economy for the 1.4-liter "four", it makes sense to look at a more powerful modification that develops a wild 123 horsepower. Ideally - from a manual gearbox, since the "automatic" is stale and has only 4 gears. On the other hand, the ancient four-step is quite reliable, so if the presence of a "machine" is fundamentally important, Solaris should not be discounted. Moreover, the domestic car has a similar transmission is hardly better.
At the price of the new Grants in the Comfort package (about 500 thousand rubles), you can easily take Solaris on the “automatic”, with air conditioning and heated front seats. At the same time, it is easy to find a car even with a modest mileage for its age (about 50 thousand kilometers) and without accidents. There are a lot of solaris in Russia, so there are plenty of spare parts for them. But the cars themselves are without frills - with hard plastic interior, which is easily scratched, the simplest seat upholstery, mediocre sound insulation and shaking rear suspension.
