«Та же табуретка, только дороже»: Почему обновленный Hyundai Solaris не оправдывает ожиданий российских потребителей?

A new little – nothing to seek.

Official representatives of Hyundai confirmed a significant difference from the new Solaris updated Chinese model Verna. Version for China has received significant changes, including a completely new stern with lights brand new design. The front of both models are similar, but draws attention to another form of bumper, headlights and grille.

Now “Solaris” be more aggressive “muzzle”, because the front grille increased in size, and the horizontal plank it gave way to honeycomb. By itself, the bumper began to look more sporty. The spotlight is now directly adjacent to the grille. Optics is fully led already in the base, a bold response to the actions of competitors. After all, the restyled Skoda Rapid and the expected new Volkswagen Polo will also get led optics in the “base”. Internal plastic parts of headlights painted black, which gives the “Korean” more expensive appearance.

At the same time, the front fenders and hood Hyundai Solaris remains the same, to save on costly production of new stamps. The profile of the car has wheels of the new design, which will be available in expensive models.

In the cabin the changes are minimal. “Solaris” will receive a new multimedia system with a screen a tablet type, which supports the services Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The expensive models will appear, leather interior, heated rear seats and air ducts for the rear passengers.

Depending on the configuration, the new “Sol” increases of 30-50 thousand rubles. Cost current model starts from $ 756 thousand rubles, while prices for “fresh” copies of 780 thousand. However, the updated Hyundai Solaris has not met the expectations of Russian consumers. “Side airbags, and active cruise won’t be in it? Then buy a Suzuki swift”, “at Least 2.0 liter dviglom equipped with 149 HP on the same stool, only more expensive”, “Better job over Shumka, suspension and quality of materials. And so another bucket for a million”, write the frustrated motorists.
