better at city traffic
Most recently, we have already figured out what choice there is for those who need not just a crossover, but a real frame SUV, but at the same time for little money. Today we will talk about crossovers in their modern sense – that is, we will not include Niva here (neither the former nor the real one), as well as those cheap frames mentioned in the past material. And yet, even with the mandatory all-wheel drive, you can also meet the amount of “a million and a little.” What is on the market for this money?
Like it or not, and everything is expected to begin with Renault Duster. Keeping the extremely low cost of the basic configuration due to its absolutely minimal equipment, Duster, nevertheless, and with the increase in the number of options, remains one of the most attractive options.

In fact, the answer to the question of why the Japanese made two versions of the Corolla lies on the surface – along with beautiful stories that since the appearance of the model in 1966, more than 46 million units have been sold. The fact is that it is the sedan version that is the best-selling one, which means it generates the most profits.

So two variants of a sedan with the obvious names “Sporty” and “Prestige” were born.

What, where and how are we looking?
What is good about the X60 is the lack of the need to look for cars with successful engines and gearboxes: there is one box and one motor. True, after the restyling of 2015, cars with variators appeared, but they cost thousands from five hundred. We assume that such we can not afford. But dorestaylingovye cars 2013-2014 year – our option. Assessment service tells us to prepare 390-420 thousand rubles. We will look at those that are cheaper, and even raise the bar to the conditional 450 thousand, which should be enough for quite decent dorest.
In general, the engine Lifan LFB479Q, obtained by a small alteration of toyotovskogo 1ZZ-FE, is not so bad. Thousands to 150 kilometers, he behaves quite well, although with a mileage of 100 thousand kilometers you can already begin to listen to the circuit. At the same age (about 150 thousand km), oil consumption can slightly increase, which is “cured” by replacing piston rings and oil scraps. Continue reading
