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started in the fourth year of life did not bring radical changes to Vitara, but the fiat 1.6-liter turbodiesel and outdated gasoline aspirated with the same working volume disappeared from the gamut of engines of the European version due to tougher environmental requirements.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

Five reasons to love and hate the Great Wall Hover

Russian car enthusiasts first met the Hover at the Moscow Motor Show 2005, and the following year the official importer of the Great Wall brand, Irito, organized the assembly of cars in the old town of Gzhel (body welding from parts supplied from Celestial was carried out Cherkessk). It is worth noting that then, 12 years ago, the reaction to the novelty was quite positive: “Well, this one looks like a car though.”
Indeed, the prototype of the Hover was the Isuzu Axiom SUV. This did not cause any conflict of interest: by that time, the concern GM, which owned the majority stake in Isuzu, decided to curtail the production of Japanese brand SUVs for Japan, the USA and Europe. Axiom just got under this decision.
Chinese designers have kept intact the main lines and proportions of the body, but made major changes to the design of the front, which went only to benefit the model. But the technical “stuffing” of the car was made according to the principle “I made him blind from what was. Continue reading

Five reasons to love and hate Hyundai

At the turn of two centuries, when humanity with such a pomp and one year ahead (because in fact the XXI century began in 2001, and not in 2000) celebrated the new millennium, marketers noticed a significant increase in demand for subcompact car models. The ambitious Korean concern Hyundai could not stand aside. As a result, in the fall of 2001, a concept called Hyundai TB was shown at the Tokyo Motor Show, and six months later, in March 2002, the Hyundai Getz serial babe flaunted on the Geneva podium.
Then many experts and journalists drew attention to the absolutely European appearance and design of the interior of the novelty. As a matter of fact, there was nothing surprising in this: the European engineering center of the Korean concern located in Frankfurt was engaged in the development of the design. The main highlight was the layout with a fairly vertical fit, a high roof and a nearly vertical rear door, which allowed to increase the internal volume with very modest external dimensions.
