400,000 rubles is a small amount that allows you to buy only a used car today. On the Russian market, there are models that can be bought for the specified money. However, the quality of these machines is low. Therefore, if you have a limited budget, the best solution would be to turn to the secondary market.
11th place. Chery Indis
Chery Indis is a compact urban crossover. The Chinese car, despite its small size, is suitable for family drivers. The crossover has an original appearance and provides a fairly high level of safety. The model also features a spacious interior. Today in the Russian market there are announcements for the sale of a crossover for 400 thousand rubles, released later than 2013.
The car stands out against the background of its competitors with good equipment. Moreover, already in the basic configuration, a large set of necessary equipment is provided. Chery Indis is characterized by good cross-country ability. Its luggage compartment holds up to 1,000 liters of cargo. Under the hood of the model is a 1.3-liter 83-horsepower engine that provides acceleration up to 160 km / h and consumes an average of 7.5 liters of fuel.
10th place. Skoda Fabia
The popularity of the Skoda Fabia is due to several reasons at once. The Czech model has a laconic design and a relatively spacious (for its class) interior. But not only this attracts buyers Fabia. The Czech car is characterized by increased reliability. In addition, the hatchback demonstrates good dynamic performance and does not require large expenditures associated with maintenance. Mounted motors use relatively little fuel.
A used car for less than 400,000 rubles in Russia can be bought, produced in the period from 2010 to 2014. Despite its impressive age, the car (subject to the rules of operation), after purchase, will last for several more years.
9th place. UAZ Hunter
UAZ Hunter can be called a specialized car. This opinion is explained by the fact that this car is purchased mainly for off-road driving. The Hunter has a high ground clearance, four-wheel drive, a transfer case with a reduction gear and reliable suspension. Each of these features provides the Russian model with good cross-country ability. The Hunter is powered by 113 or 128 horsepower engines.
The main drawback of the car is a low level of comfort and an unattractive appearance. It should also be noted the poor configurations, which do not even include an air conditioner.
8th place. Renault Sandero
Renault Sandero impresses with its attractive appearance. The interior of the French hatchback is quite comfortable. Perhaps the main disadvantage of this model is the small luggage compartment. Otherwise, Renault Sandero can be called a good offer. The car stands out due to its increased reliability. In addition, the hatchback is inexpensive to maintain. This is due to the fact that Sandero is going to Russia.
The car is equipped with engines that are quite powerful for their class, which do not require major repairs for 150 thousand kilometers or more. At the same time, Renault Sandero consumes a lot of fuel.
7th place. Renault logan
Logan, in fact, differs from Sandero in appearance. However, the sedan is more popular in the Russian market and costs a little cheaper than a hatchback. So, a used car cheaper than 400,000 rubles can be bought, produced in the period from 2015 to 2018. The French model does not make high demands on the part of the care. The car is capable of consuming low-quality fuel without consequences, starting in severe frosts. The Logan does not break down quickly if it is constantly used on uneven roads. At the same time, the sedan has good equipment, reliable suspension and high ground clearance.
6th place. Nissan almera classic
The Nissan Almera Classic is a reliable vehicle with simple construction and low cost maintenance. Now the Japanese sedan is not produced, but offers for its sale are often found in the secondary market. The car behaves equally well on urban roads and off-road, providing a good level of comfort. The security parameters are also at an acceptable level.
Almera Classic is less likely to corrode than other cars. The main components of the sedan do not break down for several tens, and even hundreds of thousands of kilometers. And this applies not only to the mechanical, but also to the automatic transmission. For 400 thousand rubles, there are now offers for the sale of a top-end Nissan Almera Classic.
5th place. Volkswagen polo
The Volkswagen Polo stands out from the competition with its robust design. Depending on the buyer's requirements for the level of equipment, for 400 thousand rubles, you can purchase a German model in both the basic and top-end configuration of 2010-2012 or 2014-2015, respectively. Another important feature of the VW Polo is the ergonomic and comfortable interior. In addition, it is worth highlighting that the car is relatively inexpensive to maintain.
4th place. Toyota corolla
Toyota Corolla is one of the most popular cars in the history of the automotive industry. The high demand for the Japanese model is largely due to its high-quality assembly. Thanks to this, even produced more than 10 years ago, the Corolla retains its driving ability and rarely breaks. The Japanese sedan is equipped with an economical and reliable engine, has a spacious interior and a spacious luggage compartment.
Probably the Corolla's main flaw is that the price of this car comes down slowly. Therefore, sedan versions released before 2010 are available in the secondary market for the indicated amount. In this regard, the purchased car will consume a relatively large amount of fuel and oil.
3rd place. Kia rio
The Korean budget car immediately after its appearance on the Russian market became one of the most demanded. The high demand for Kia Rio is due to its attractive appearance, good equipment, comfortable interior and affordable price. In addition, the car is relatively unpretentious in maintenance, and its main nodal elements serve for a long time.
When purchasing a Kia Rio in the secondary market, it is recommended to pay attention to versions with a manual transmission. "Automatic", according to the assurances of car owners, over time begins to create problems. When buying a Rio in the aftermarket, attention should be paid to inspect the body for corrosion. The latter appears due to the fact that the sedan's paintwork comes off easily.
2nd place. Hyundai solaris
Hyundai Solaris is built on the same platform as the Kia Rio. Both vehicles have similar equipment and differ only in design. Accordingly, Hyundai Solaris also boasts a high level of reliability and comfort. The only drawback of this model, which car owners pay attention to, is that the suspension can fail early if the car is often used on uneven roads. In addition, the paint on the body peels off rather quickly. However, this is leveled by regular maintenance of the sedan.
Hyundai Solaris is one line higher than Rio for only one reason: the model is more popular in Russia.
1st place. Mitsubishi lancer
For personal use, it is recommended to purchase a Mitsubishi Lancer not older than eight years. The Japanese model has a sporty appearance and a high level of reliability. A used car cheaper than 400,000 rubles can be found on the secondary market in a relatively fresh version. Mitsubishi Lancer X falls under this criterion.
Among the advantages of this sedan are excellent dynamic characteristics and a high-quality engine that can withstand more than 150 thousand kilometers. Moreover, only after reaching this mark, the engine begins to consume more fuel and oil. And provided that the former owner complied with the operating conditions, problems with the Lancer will not arise longer. Perhaps the main disadvantage of the Japanese model is that the components for it are relatively expensive.
