In 2021, several dozen new cars will enter the Russian market. Some of them are revised versions of models that have already been sold in our country. But also several previously unavailable cars will arrive on the domestic market. However, most of the expected cars belong to the mid-price category. But there are also those among them that will cost less than a million rubles.
Until the recent change of generations, Haval H6 was sold in Russia at a price of over 1.1 million rubles. The third generation crossover will cost a little more. However, the new Haval H6 can be included in this rating of new Russian crossovers in 2021, since thanks to support programs (trade-in and others), its price can be reduced to one million rubles.
The Chinese model has been deeply revised as part of the latest modernization. The car moved to a new platform, and its body and interior were radically transformed. At the same time, the manufacturer has expanded the list of on-board equipment, thanks to which the Haval H6 has become more comfortable. However, the technical part of the crossover has remained unchanged. Like the pre-reform version of the Chinese model, the novelty is equipped with a 1.5-liter turbo engine, which in Russia will produce no more than 150 hp. Optionally, a 2-liter supercharged unit will be offered with the Haval H6. Its maximum power reaches 224 hp. Each of the motors is equipped with a 7-speed robotic gearbox. Four-wheel drive is available as an option for the crossover.
JAC is not very popular in Russia. But recently it has invested a lot of money in the modernization of its lineup, which also affected the compact crossover S3. After a series of improvements, the car received, in fact, only a new body with enlarged air intakes, massive blocks of LED lights and a very narrow head optics. The interior of the Chinese model has undergone less noticeable changes.
As part of the latest modernization, the manufacturer has improved the list of onboard equipment. In particular, after restyling, JAC S3 acquired a new multimedia complex, which included a 10, 25-inch touchscreen monitor. But the technical characteristics of the Chinese model remained the same. As standard, the S3 is equipped with a 1.5-liter "aspirated" engine developing up to 115 hp. power. Slightly more expensive are the versions with a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter unit, whose output reaches 120 hp. For the first motor, a 5-speed manual transmission was offered, for the second - a variator.
Chery Tiggo 2 Pro
At the end of 2021, the new Chery Tiggo 2 Pro will enter the Russian market. The Chinese model has acquired a completely different body in the course of the latest modernization, thanks to which the car looks more sporty. At the same time, engineers have improved the quality of the cabin noise insulation and reconfigured the suspension, which now better cope with bumps on the road. In addition, the clearance of the Chinese novelty has reached 185 mm.
Complete with the crossover, they will offer at least one naturally aspirated 1.5-liter engine, delivering up to 106 hp. power. Along with it comes a 4-speed automatic transmission. In the interior of the crossover, a new multimedia complex has appeared that supports communication with mobile equipment. Pricing for the Tiggo 2 Pro has yet to be announced. But it is expected that the crossover, even in maximum performance, will cost less than 900 thousand rubles.
Chery Tiggo 4 Pro
This crossover in 2020 became the best-selling Chinese car in the Russian market. However, Chery, as before, is rapidly updating its compact SUV, preparing another modification for our country. After restyling, the Tiggo 4 Pro should arrive in Russia in the second quarter of 2021.
As in the case of the "younger" model, this crossover has acquired a new body, which made it more dynamic. The Tiggo 4 Pro supports several driving modes, including sports. The crossover also received a new multimedia complex with a 10, 25-inch touchscreen monitor and other equipment. And as an option, they will offer a virtual dashboard with it. As standard, the Tiggo 4 Pro is equipped with a 2-liter naturally aspirated engine with a maximum output of 122 hp. For a surcharge with a crossover, it will be possible to purchase a turbocharged unit with a volume of 1.4 liters, producing up to 147 hp. Four-wheel drive is not provided for this model.
Lada Niva Travel
AvtoVAZ calls this SUV a new model. But in reality, Lada Niva Travel is a redesigned version of the car, which until early 2020 was sold under the Chverolet brand. It is stated that the Russian model, like its predecessor, is equipped with a naturally aspirated 1.7-liter engine producing up to 80 hp. power. This unit comes with a permanent four-wheel drive, a two-speed transfer case and a 5-band manual transmission.
All the changes that the Niva underwent during the modernization carried out at the end of 2020 affected mainly the front part of the body. There is a larger grille with a large mesh, different optics and a massive strip of unpainted plastic, which starts near the edge of the hood and covers almost the entire bumper with compact fog lights. The price for the new Niva Travel has not yet been announced, but it is expected that the car will cost less than 800 thousand rubles.
The appearance in Russia of the second generation of the French crossover has been expected for a long time. The new Renault Duster should enter the domestic market during the first half of 2021. The appearance of the car after the modifications made has not changed as much as expected. But at the same time, the manufacturer has significantly corrected the technical part. The engine range of the new Duster has yet to be announced. According to preliminary information, for the first time on the Russian market, the crossover will receive a turbocharged engine with a volume of 1.33 liters, whose maximum output does not exceed 150 hp.
