The Shanghai Auto Show, one of the few major events of 2021, will open in the second half of April. Apparently, this is why the number of new products that will enter the market this month is so small. Moreover, many cars preparing for the start of sales are little known or unpopular in Russia. But in our country, the debut of several notable models is expected.
This is perhaps the main novelty of April 2021, which will enter the Russian market. A family minivan with the makings of a crossover will be available in our country at a price of 2.6 million rubles. Together with Carnival, they will offer a choice of a 2, 2-liter turbodiesel and an atmospheric unit with a volume of 3.5 liters, which respectively develop up to 199 hp. and 249 hp. power. In both cases, an 8-speed automatic transmission is installed on the Korean novelty, which transfers all traction to the front wheels. Depending on the type of modification, the minivan is equipped with seven airbags, several driver's assistants, an integrated active control system, leather seats and a multifunction steering wheel, an air conditioner with air deflectors for all three rows, electric side doors and other equipment. Along with Carnival, there is also a virtual instrument panel, 12 speakers, premium Bose acoustics and a 12.3-inch touchscreen.

A few months after the world premiere, the new generation of the Isuzu D-Max pickup truck will arrive on the Russian market.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
The fourth novelty in April 2021, which will enter the Russian market.

All copies of the Eclipse Cross will be delivered to Russia directly from Japan.
The fifth novelty of April, which is preparing for the Russian market. Toyota Camry after modernization has risen in price to 1.84 million rubles.
