In the beginning of the year bought a new Hyundai Solaris. Before that was the car of a higher class, but relatively old and purchased used. Don’t want to tell you a lot of money, because it drew attention to the youngest classes. And honestly, no regrets.
Progress is progress — even the most basic cars have decent equipment, is that 15 years ago were found only in the top trim levels. And the appearance of a modest sedan B-class is no worse than many large family sedans. On business class, of course, does not pull, but still very presentable.
Consumption turns out to be very acceptable. At the senior riding style managed to invest in 8.4 liters per 100 km in the city (!!!). If you normally ride, about 9. On the road — in the area of 7-7.5 years depending on your speed and agility. Still a decent figure. Just say, I have a mechanic 1.6. Automatic flow above, and not even on a liter, and one and a half: checked with a friend who bought almost the same instance.
At driving qualities — everything is fine. Excellent road holding, reasonable controlled, even a little mistake while entering a corner and not go into a skid. Of course, you need to know the scope, because the laws of physics have not been canceled, but the car really helps a lot. However, he is not hard, neither good nor bad road, comes assembled — as the saying goes, «sturdily built». The soft winter tires even becomes a bit impressive) summer harder, and I like the idea of more.
Hyundai Solaris 2018 reviews blamed for poor sound insulation. I agree, the wheel arches are annoyingly loud, the sound of the engine at high revs is also very clearly heard in the cabin.
Space in the cabin enough. The seats are comfortable. He himself fit, albeit tight. In the driver’s seat do not get tired even after 3 hours driving on the highway without stops and outputs «fresh air». About longer trips will not tell — did not try to go so long without a break, try every 3 hours to stop and drink coffee or just to relax, stretch their legs, so that nothing is numb.
Of the real downsides, apart from sumki, I must say frankly bad sound — music fans won’t like, and relatively cheap materials. But it would be foolish to wait for the Alcantara in the car for 700 thousand rubles. So all of these shortcomings are quite normal given the price, I’d even call it nagging.
Will advise if I have the car? Yes, definitely. Take, will not regret.
Car pros:Reasonable consumption.
Cons of the car:Soundproofing.
