Extenuating circumstances. Updated Suzuki Vitara

Vitara is the best-selling Suzuki model in Europe and Russia: from January to August of this year, 55,826 and 2,423 units were sold, respectively. Consumers are attracted by the laconic design in the spirit of the discontinued Grand Vitara SUV and the healthy conservatism of the Japanese crossover’s technical stuffing.
The update started in the fourth year of life did not bring radical changes to Vitara, but the fiat 1.6-liter turbodiesel and outdated gasoline aspirated with the same working volume disappeared from the gamut of engines of the European version due to tougher environmental requirements. But if in Europe amtospheric motors leave even the segment of mass inexpensive models, then in Russia they are still in great demand. More than 90% of Vitar are sold in our country with just 1.6 petrol engine (117 hp), and Suzuki reasonably decided for us to leave this unit, and instead Europeans will be offered a 111 Boosterjet petrol turbojet hp Continue reading

Kalina, red Kalina: buy Lada Kalina

What, where and how are we looking?
AvtoVAZ never pleased us with interesting restyling (he pleases with machines one more time), so we are looking for any first-generation car. The Kalina-2 (VAZ 2192/2194) will be viewed somehow separately: this is a completely different car, technically more similar to Grant.
Usually in this place I tell which one is better to choose a motor or box, but this time the details will not be for obvious reasons. Here you need to try to find at least a more or less an entire body: in terms of the speed of decay, the VAZ car proudly competes not even with the Moskvich 2141, but with the German premium in the person of Mercedes W210. But if you repair a “tin” with a “lupat” there is some sense, then this is absolutely useless thing on Kalina: this car will not become a “classic” and in the near future there will be no fight for it at retro car auctions.
So let’s be straight to the extreme – we see the whole body and buy. Continue reading

After the new year, DerVase may stop assembling Lifan and Chery. We reveal the details

The DerVace car company entered the Russian market at the beginning of the “zero” years with its own-developed off-road vehicle, but based on the Romanian ARO trolley. A few years later Lifan came to Cherkessk and in 2009, the assembly went on a full cycle of the Breez model. Then there was cooperation with Geely, which eventually went to its own facilities in Belarus, with Haima, which left Russia, with Brilliance, who left DerVace last year and is still limited to the sale of warehouse stocks of the V5 subcompact crossover. Yes, there was also JAC, who also left, and after the break, decided to return to Russia, but already with the Kazakh assembly cars.
Together with Lifan, which assembles all models presented in Russia at full capacity in Cherkessk, Chery remained on DerVase, leading a more cautious policy: Tiggo 5 and Tiggo 3 are made in Cherkessk, while Tiggo 2 is imported from China. From January to September, inclusive, Lifan sent dealerships 11,227 cars, and Chery – 3,586 copies of Tiggo 5 and Tiggo 3. Continue reading
