  3. five-speed robotic (5 AMT).

As the owners of LADA Granta note, it is characterized by small fuel consumption: in the combined cycle, the average consumption of gasoline per 100 kilometers is 6.8 liters. For more than 7 years this model survived the restyling, and more recently altogether the release of the updated Sport series began, therefore, with a large with confidence we can say that Granta will stay with us for at least 3-4 years.

Datsun on-do

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.8

Datsun on-DO

A step from the leader of the ranking is inexpensive Chinese Datsun on-DO car, presented on the domestic market at 15 trim levels. In general, its distinguishing feature can be called only the minimum price tag – it barely exceeds 400 thousand rubles (Access), while the most expensive version will cost the ordinary 651 thousand user (Dream II).

In appearance, the car has almost nothing to say: users note that on-DO looks like a mediocre sedan in which the features of a number of pre-styling “classmates” are guessed. Power the engine here is from 87 to 106 horsepower, and consumption fuel does not exceed 6.6 liters per 100 kilometers (average index). The maximum speed in this case varies in the range from 178 to 184 kilometers per hour, and depends more on the type transmissions. And if the technical part is more than modest, then interior equipment depends entirely on configuration: here the Chinese tried their best, equipping the interior and an on-board computer, and light / rain sensors, and many others, in in general, systems already in use.

Advantages

  • equipment;
  • high safety standards;
  • focus on the Russian market and car adaptation under appropriate road conditions;
  • relatively inexpensive service.

disadvantages

  • not the best design.

Renault Logan

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.7

Renault Logan

Full source and ideological inspirer of the LADA concept Granta, an honorable third place on the list of the most inexpensive cars in the Russian market. Despite the rather honorable automotive standards the age of the Renault Logan series continues delight motorists with new concepts and restyled versions – from the former clumsiness in the flagship models now there is no trace. The new design was developed in close collaboration with PAO AvtoVAZ, so familiar features can be seen in the line Russian automaker.

Currently Renault Logan is sold on the market in four enlarged trim levels: Access (hello, on-DO), Life, Drive, Style. Differences in appearance between them, of course, are present, but not as much as differences in interior and opportunities inside the cabin. The power of the 1.6 liter engine here varies from 82 to 113 horsepower (depends on the quantity valves), and as a transmission only automatic (4AT) and mechanical (5MT) gearboxes. Regarding adaptation to Russian conditions in technical the characteristics of Logan spelled out a whole paragraph, which includes adjustment of the engine to run in a cold climate, a guarantee mechanical service for 3 years or 100 thousand kilometers, and many other pretty obvious points.

Advantages

  • combined fuel consumption of 5.7 and 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers (for 5MT and 4AT, respectively);
  • 113 horsepower at maximum speed;
  • nice appearance;
  • full adaptation of the car (up to the body) for Russian terms.

Geely Emgrand 7

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.7

Geely Emgrand 7.jpg

As a representative of the gradually departing C + segment of the world sedans, the fourth line of the ranking took inexpensive Chinese car Geely Emgrand 7. In some incomprehensible way it the assembly was localized in Belarus, where the finished models came from (True, only in two versions) and enter the Russian market. The car turned out to be ambiguous, as reviews say auto bloggers and user reviews, primarily due to a number of ergonomic design errors and specifically driver place (incomprehensible seat landing, shifted to the left and skewed steering wheel axis, etc.).

Abstracting from a thorough analysis, apparently Geely Emgrand 7 makes a good impression, although it does not reach the same Kia Rio or Hyundai Solaris (aesthetically pleasing). The blame for this look at the car – an inflated price tag for the maximum, but truncated a complete set in which 7 begins to impress a good class C + sedan. It is equal to 970 thousand rubles, which for there are a lot of Chinese cars. Especially considering the presence under the hood 1.8-liter engine producing only 133 horsepower paired with five-speed manual gearbox.

Advantages

  • very rich interior design;
  • spacious passenger department;
  • 133 horsepower at maximum speed;
  • good appearance.

disadvantages

  • the presence of defects in the cabin, ergonomics and a number of external details – this is not what users expect from a transition C + car segment.

Lada vesta

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.7

Lada Vesta

The fifth line of the rating goes to one of the most recent concepts of AvtoVAZ company – LADA Vesta car, cost which starts from 500 thousand rubles (Standard with mechanical transmission). There are 23 complete sets in the assortment, of which the most expensive – Exclusive with a five-speed robotic gearbox, worth 746 thousand. By compared to the Geely Emgrand 7, this price situation looks good, true, while Vesta is positioned as a class car a little lower.

Under the hood of this model is either a 1.6-liter engine 106 horsepower, or 1.8-liter 16-valve unit for 122 horses. Paired with them only robotic and mechanical gearboxes that is a small feature of the model, however, is somewhat controversial, given congestion in a number of regions (robots are difficult to tolerate movement in the rhythm of “start / stop”). It is foolish to deny the fact that Vesta It turned out beautiful, especially against the background of previous representatives assortment of the company. But a number of hereditary problems in it are still stayed, but the engineers and the company are on the right track.

Advantages

  • good performance characteristics;
  • 122 horsepower from a 1.8-liter engine;
  • based on mechanical and robotic transmissions;
  • nice appearance (stamping on the sides + X-shaped front end).

disadvantages

  • for a car of this rank, very weak work on soundproofing and fitting body parts to each other.

Hyundai Solaris

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.7

Hyundai Solaris

The undisputed leader in sales in Russia during recent years, the most “popular”, albeit Korean, car with amazing vitality. Hyundai Solaris – a good example of balance between pleasant appearance and satisfactory technical characteristics, a car that is designed specifically for people seeking a compromise on value. Exterior of the budget flagship of Korea is full of artsy elements and interesting geometry that attract the attention of others and distinguish it from the crowd.

There are two types of engines under the hood of Solaris:

  1. 1.4-liter Kappa 1.4 MPI with 100 horsepower forces;
  2. The 1.6-liter Gamma 1.6 MPI, from which engineers managed squeeze 123 horses.

Even in comparison with the Vesta (a seemingly new car generations) the Korean manages to look worthy, however, in this There is one big “but.” And it consists entirely in price: starting price for a 1.4 liter sample with a 6-speed manual the transmission is 730 thousand rubles – of course, about any additions to the cabin and options for speech are not here. Something more suitable for long-term use starts from 850 thousand, and ends at a price of a million. Which, however, does not interfere with the car. remain one of the most inexpensive since its first release.

Advantages

  • very nice body design;
  • good interior design;
  • excellent engine modification work (123 horsepower with 1.6 liters of working volume);
  • constant updating of appearance;
  • The most popular Korean car in Russia.

disadvantages

  • a big difference in quality between the models assembled in Korea and in Russia.

Chery Bonus

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.3

Chery Bonus

On the seventh line of the ranking is another representative “Celestial” – a subcompact sedan Cherry Bonus with a slope of the exterior design for the Volkswagen Golf (and a little Ford Focus). During all this time release (since 2008) this car has undergone only external and interior changes, leaving the mechanical layout unchanged parts. Independent levers acted as a front suspension McPherson, and in the back you can see the standard for budget sedans picture – dependent hydraulic struts with springs. Under 1.5-liter engine with 109 horsepower rests on the hood and 140 Nm of torque.

In general, Chery Bonus can be presented for the quality of production a lot of complaints: it is clear that the car was created with a bias in the budget segment and the Chinese decided to save as much as possible on clearance. Despite this, the “magic of numbers” works wonders: the initial the price for a brand new sedan was 350 thousand rubles and people are willing to bought it … until the moment in the lineup crossovers and SUVs, and did not supplant Bonus from the Russian market.

Advantages

  • inexpensive subcompact sedan with an acceptable appearance;
  • 109 horsepower from a 1.5-liter engine.

disadvantages

  • a number of “clumsy” elements, both in the cabin and in bodywork;
  • official dealer removed Bonus from the number of cars available for purchase in Russia.

Ravon R3

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.2

Ravon R3

In 2016, Ravon entered the domestic market, the flagship among the sedans which has become an inexpensive model R3 Nexia. You you may ask: “Is this Nexia, which until recently was the redeemed Daewoo produced? “No. It’s completely different cars, the common between which is only in geography production – the city of Asaka, which is in Uzbekistan. But much in common him just with a less obvious development from General Motors, existing in the realities of the European segment – Chevrolet Aveo. Despite the typical Sedan exterior and feed, and the front The R3 is a typical reference to the T255 used for the Aveo.

In addition to the GM’s concept, the Ravon sedan received a 1.5-liter engine with 107 horsepower, acceleration to 100 kilometers per hour which takes 12.5 seconds. The result for a budget car quite good, but depressing increased fuel consumption: on average 8-9 liters per 100 kilometers in the combined cycle of movement. However, and the cost of it to match the technical condition: plug according to the price list starts from 450 to 579 thousand rubles. Enough modest spread, given the number of “buns” going up level of equipment. And yet to at least a little high place in Ravon R3 rating falls short – it’s a purely niche sedan budget-friendly for deep family people or for acquisitions as the first car.

Advantages

  • reasonable price limits for various configurations;
  • 1.5-liter engine with 107 horsepower.

disadvantages

  • rustic design;
  • high consumption in the combined cycle (8-9 liters).

The cheapest SUVs

Chery Tiggo 5 I Restyling

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.9

Chery Tiggo 5 I Restyling.jpg

The first line of the ranking of the best low-cost SUV goes the updated Chery Tiggo 5, combining both visual and technical components superior to opponents. In fact, this car is designed to conquer some kind of light or medium by the complexity of landscapes – trips to nature or moderate cross out. Drive on impassable routes with such an external the decoration will be extremely sorry – for these purposes there are more “draft” options.

Thus, Chery Tiggo 5 can safely fit into the category representative SUVs. But let’s deal with the technical part. Under the hood is a two-liter (let’s say right away that obviously insufficient) engine with a capacity of 136 horsepower and torque at the level of 182 Nm. For the weight of the car this not enough, but the dynamics as if does not feel an imbalance. In the end as a result, the “poorest” equipment of this car will cost the user is 900 thousand rubles, and the price of the maximum speed with a variator as a transmission will be 1 million 200 thousand.

Advantages

  • very nice design, allowing the car to get into class representative SUVs;
  • available with mechanical transmission and CVT;
  • acceptable fuel consumption (10 liters per 100 kilometers);
  • good driving dynamics.

disadvantages

  • not the most powerful motor for that weight.

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.8

Chevrolet Niva I Restyling.jpg

From 2002 to this day, Chevrolet Niva cars have been actively participate in the traffic of Russia, and in the near future leave our market (like the now deceased Chevrolet Lachetti) is definitely not going to. In 2014, the GM AvtoVAZ concern built interesting plans for restyling the old body, essentially changing it to more aggressive and attractive appearance. Made a prototype presented to the general public … and left in the rank of concept on indefinite term. Therefore, we have that we have: finite restyled version is not much different from the old models sample, with the exception of the conversion of the cabin, minor updates on the body part (snorkel and plastic bottom to protect the arches and thresholds from corrosion) and reducing the number of complete sets to four.

Retail price for Chevrolet Niva is from 680 to 800 thousand rubles – for a compact SUV with good cross-country ability and “lethargy” is a perfectly normal amount (price ceiling for classic “Niva” ends exactly under 600 thousand). For these money the user receives 80 horsepower power with 1.7 liter inline four-cylinder engine, 10 liters fuel consumption in the combined cycle of movement, and up to 140 kilometers in hour of power.

Advantages

  • simple and reliable car for off-road driving;
  • lightweight and compact, with a shortened base;
  • widespread in the market, including in secondary.

disadvantages

  • low power problems don’t go anywhere – technical model auto development does not involve updating engines in the foreseeable the future.

Great Wall Hover H5

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.7

Great Wall Hover H5

Compact and inexpensive Chinese SUV, built on the basis of old and successful Japanese cars and German origin. So, for the H5th, he became an official donor the once-popular Isuzu Axiom, made at the very beginning The 2000s. The body got characteristic features with small processing for modern types, and also secured support optics from Mazda cars (CX-7 models, to be more precise), for which did not fail to pay attention to critics at the presentation of the car.

From a purely practical point of view, the Great Wall Hover H5 can positioned as a “pseudo-SUV” because its visual and interior parts were designed more for traffic in urban rhythm, but not in impassable swamps and dirt. It is for sale on Russian territory in picking with three different engines:

  1. with 2.4-liter gasoline rated at 136 horsepower;
  2. with a 2-liter diesel engine for 143 horses;
  3. released in 2015 2.5-liter turbodiesel 150 Horse power.

In general, the car turned out not bad, but the fact of its high value is still scared away by a number of buyers. Starting price for the basic equipment is one million rubles, and the cost maximum can reach up to 1.5 million.

Advantages

  • good engine options (gasoline + two diesel for 2 and 2.5 liters);
  • interesting appearance (fusion of Japanese and German elements cars).

disadvantages

  • a pseudo-SUV suitable mainly for driving in city ​​limits.

UAZ Patriot I Restyling 3

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.4

UAZ PATRIOT I RESTYLING 3

With the next update in appearance, the UAZ Patriot has undergone and changes in the mechanical part: instead of the old engine, the line was integrated new unit ZMZ Pro with a capacity of 150 horsepower (but for premium trim levels only). In the visual part, everything remained virtually unchanged – quite angry and clumsy view that has retained a fighting character for off-road trips.

Despite the high landing clearance Patriot can not be called huge – the bridge still lowers the clearance to 210 millimeters, taking all the bumps on yourself. Because of the weight of 2125 kilograms maximum developed speed does not exceed 150 kilometers in an hour, but for off-road driving this is not the most important parameter. Fuel consumption is in a quite acceptable framework: in a combined cycle of 100 kilometers takes about 12-13 liters. On the interior, everything is also more or less acceptable: there is an onboard a computer, a reasonably comfortable fit and all the necessary functions for current filling standards. Cars of a series from 759000 to 1103000 rubles, offering a choice of as many as six trim levels – from Fleet to Prestige and Maximum.

Advantages

  • updated engine on premium trim levels (150 horsepower, 2.7 liters);
  • fairly low fuel consumption;
  • extended line of complete sets;
  • imprisonment under impassability.

disadvantages

  • clearance is 210 centimeters – the bridge is still weak structural node in terms of car lift.

The most inexpensive crossovers

Renault Sandero Stepway

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.9

Renault Sandero Stepway

The category of budget crossovers – a haven for the third Renault car, more budget compared to Kaptur and Duster. In principle, the Sandero Stepway can be called modest in everything: from design to driving performance. Getting recycled external look, he added in terms of beauty and visibility, but remained “draft” option for traveling on light and medium terrain, or for quiet and peaceful operation as a family a car.

Yes, Sandero Stepway sorely lacks Duster’s cross-country ability, but for all his flaws, he does not try to seem like something conceptually high, clearly fulfilling the requested manufacturer price. This model is based on a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with power from 82 to 113 horsepower in combination with a variator, manual (5MT) or automatic (4AT) transmissions. The maximum output is up to 172 kilometers per hour with acceleration to hundreds per 11.1 seconds.

  • patency is worse than that of Duster (a kind of brand standard).

Lada xray

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.8

Lada XRAY

In fact, the most budgetary representative of crossovers in the Russian market segment remains the product of the company’s development AvtoVAZ – LADA XRay. The purpose of the creation of this car was the need to impose competition on foreign brands by conquering part of customers in the field of standard urban SUVs. Particular XRay made a bet on the design, without actually touching the original (and to be honest, not the best) undercarriage – at least in In terms of driving sensations.

It can be stated with great certainty that the positive design trends were triggered by Mitubishi, which by the way entered composition of the alliance and providing some prototypes in free use. In terms of configurations, basing on two engines 1.6 and 1.8 liters with a capacity of 106 and 122 horsepower respectively. As with Vesta, XRay uses only five-speed manual and robotic gearbox switching. On the model’s interior, only one thing can be said: meagerly, but quite acceptable. As noted in AvtoVAZ, in at least two restylings awaiting us in the near future on the outside of the body, as well as on the interior details. How much alteration will be large-scale – we do not know, but we hope to see further gradual progress of the domestic auto industry.

Advantages

  • light weight and good power engines in a bunch, making the car is driven and maneuverable;
  • the cost varies from 550 to 760 thousand rubles;
  • five official complete sets and 11 varieties of sets in them.

Nissan Terrano.png

The new generation of Nissan Terrano crossovers is very angry temper and imprisonment for the conquest of the roads, rather than peace existence within the city. The main emphasis in his appearance is made on the enlargement of the features of the grille, a slight modification front and rear optics with bumpers. Despite the external the weight of the car weighs only 1.5 tons – for such a weight is quite enough 2-liter gasoline engine with a capacity of 143 horsepower and 195 Nm of torque.

By the way, the configuration indicated above corresponds to top of the range with all-wheel drive, cost which goes beyond the mark of 1 million 150 thousand rubles. The most the initial version of Terrano Comfort will only have front-wheel drive and a 1.6-liter engine with 114 horsepower in conjunction with five-speed manual transmission. The cost of this option will be approximately 900 thousand rubles. In general, and in terms of consumption and durability the car turned out what you need: riding in mixed cycle will require no more than 7.5-8.7 liters per 100 kilometers, and thick body metal is guaranteed to withstand testing with reagents and chips, and will last at least 10 years.

Renault Duster

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.7

Renault Duster

An unambiguous hit among fans to put on the road, which more and more often contrasted with the incomparable Niva in terms of Ability to overcome difficult obstacles. Duster is a model grown from a nondescript body into a full-fledged and beautiful flagship among the crossovers of the Renault line. In fact, his previous iteration and became the progenitor of the Kaptur model described below – only changed body.

Uniqueness of Duster in comparison with other representatives of a series lies in the possibility of choosing from three engines:

  1. 1.6-liter gasoline in-line four, issuing up to 114 horsepower power;
  2. 143 horsepower 2-liter analogue (both of these engines “migrated” directly to Kaptur);
  3. 1.5 liter diesel engine with 240 Nm of torque and 109 horsepower.

Fortunately, in terms of cost, there is a more loyal to consumer situation: starting equipment with a gasoline engine and front-wheel drive will cost from 709 thousand rubles. Drive Version Plus – the highest grade possible – will cost 1 million 117 thousand rubles to the buyer.

Advantages

  • very good cross-proven over the years of existence models on the market;
  • relatively unpretentious in maintenance;
  • the latest versions are distinguished by a pleasant appearance design and trim

disadvantages

  • not found.

Hyundai creta

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.7

Hyundai Creta

A kind of mini-masterpiece from Hyundai, which launched in production of a “lite” version of Santa Fe and Tucson for lovers and fans of compact urban crossovers. Creta turned on surprise with a lively and charismatic car, not devoid of similarities corporate models of this restyled period.

The main portion of praise for this car came from lovers ride on the road – despite the aristocratic features of this the Korean flagship is not averse to messing around in the mud. But regarding equipment with Creta is not so obvious, and now it is not at all not about the interior. Under the hood in it (depending on configuration) there can be only two power units:

  1. the first is a 1.6-liter with 123 horsepower and fuel consumption level of 6.7 liters in the combined cycle. Works in conjunction with six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
  2. the second – 2 liter engine for 149 forces, consuming 7.5 liters per hundred and mated only with an automatic transmission with 6 steps of switching.

Fortunately, both in that and in another version there is four-wheel drive. Over the past two years, the cost of the Hyundai Creta has increased significantly. and now the acquisition of the poorest equipment will cost customers in the amount of 947 thousand rubles. Those who want to get the maximum will have to fork out for 1 million 325 thousand rubles (and this is not the limit).

Advantages

  • a very nice car in aesthetic terms;
  • excellent road holding and good maneuverability;
  • peppy 149 horsepower combined with low weight and all wheel drive;
  • suitable for traveling on serious off-road.

disadvantages

  • too big cost plug.

Renault Kaptur

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.6

Renault Kaptur

Hyundai Creta’s ideological rival, actually losing to the Korean in almost all components of an objective assessment. Main Renault Kaptur has a very nice design – streamlined forms even at the time of presentation made critics nervously tugging at the cuffs on the sleeves. On top of that is lightness, which directly depends and as it were imposed on the visual component.

In fact, it turned out that behind the beautiful packaging of consumers waiting if not disappointment, then a very sincere surprise. Firstly, in terms of sound insulation: it feels like this process just bypassed at the stage of compiling technology and order assembly. Secondly, the dynamics of the course, albeit good, but falls short to the level of the same Creta. Kaptur can hide under the hood either a 1.6-liter 114 horsepower engine or a 2-liter analogue with 143 horses. True, all this wealth is linked with three gearboxes (a competitor from Hyundai provides only two options): automatic, mechanical or with a variator (CVT X-Tronic).

By the way, the author of this article really likes the car, but the point is not in taste, but in what it gives relatively “classmates.” Kaptur just wasn’t lucky enough to go out almost at the same time with a number of flagships, and the cost (from 944 thousand to 1 million 334 thousand rubles) turned out to be uncompetitive for their own conditions.

Advantages

  • very beautiful design (two-tone color scheme – roof separately from the body);
  • good performance on the road;
  • three transmissions to choose from;
  • the car is able to stand out in the city stream.

disadvantages

  • high cost and not the best implementation;
  • problems with soundproofing the cabin.

Geely Emgrand X7

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.5

Geely Emgrand X7

The seventh line of the rating goes to a more representative a crossover of Chinese origin offering users interesting decisions regarding optics and moderate rigor of the body. Needless to say: Geely Emgrand X7 – one of the few cars Celestial, which turned out to be really interesting in terms of exterior design.

In terms of equipment, everything is also in order with him: in Russia, the model sold with two engines and, accordingly, two transmissions – automatic and mechanical. The first 1.8-liter engine produces 131 horsepower and 170 Nm of torque, which It is enough to ensure confident traction of its own weight. The second unit is a two-liter gasoline analogue, providing 141 force and 191 Nm of torque, but paired only with automatic gearbox. In this regard, you can expect increased consumption fuel and low off-road driving results. For the rest Geely’s flagship model is gorgeous, and on a par with other competitors (like Creta, Kaptur, Qashqai, etc.) is worthy of acquisition. Price for Emgrand X7 starts at 990 thousand and is limited to 1 million 280 thousand rubles.

Advantages

  • really high-quality assembly – one of the few in the segment Chinese crossovers;
  • good engine / transmission combinations;
  • attractive design.

disadvantages

  • This crossover was created primarily for the urban environment – all-wheel drive and good performance are unlikely to save on off-road.

Chery Tiggo 3

Car rating in the budget segment: 4.4

Chery Tiggo 3

Inexpensive crossover of a pretty good appearance, long and durable entrenched among domestic lovers of inexpensive and very quality cars. The current appearance resembles outdated concepts of flagship representatives of SUVs, diluting it with modern equipment and small branded changes (so as not to be too similar to the source).
