On the used car market, he highlighted the 2008 generation Chevrolet Spark II, which can be bought for 450 thousand rubles, as well as the 2013 Chery Bonus (415 thousand rubles) and the 2002 Volkswagen Beetle (489 thousand rubles).
“Russians choose these cars not only because of their affordable price, but also because of their original design, low fuel consumption and other advantages.. For example, the Chevrolet Spark is a small car and has fuel consumption in the range of 4.1-8.8 liters per 100 kilometers, Volkswagen Beetle – from 3.8 to 16.7 liters per 100 kilometers, depending on the engine and driving mode. The advantages of Chery Bonus include an interesting modern design, high-quality assembly and smooth running,” added Evgeny Zhitnukhin.
