Despite the fact that the fall in the value of the Russian currency has led to a sharp rise in the cost of new models, it is possible to find a really reliable version of a used car in the secondary market with a price of up to 500,000 rubles. Moreover, in some cases, we will talk about relatively new machines that meet the specified selection criteria.
12th place. Toyota Avensis
Toyota Avensis has a relatively low ground clearance, and therefore the Japanese sedan is suitable mainly for urban use. The car is offered with a sufficiently powerful and economical engine that continues to run smoothly after 100 thousand kilometers or more. Thanks to the installed motors, the Avensis behaves confidently on the tracks. Another advantage of the Japanese model is its attractive appearance and spacious interior. Also worth noting is the relatively inexpensive car maintenance.
11th place. Toyota corolla
Another representative of the Japanese brand has been included in the list of the best-selling cars in the world market for many years. Toyota Corolla stands out from competitors due to its attractive appearance, reliable design, rich equipment and low price. The car has a fairly spacious luggage compartment and high-quality suspension. All this makes Toyota Corolla in demand in the secondary market. Even models released in 2008 remain popular with motorists.
10th place. Skoda Octavia FL
The Czech liftback rolled off the conveyor belt in 2013. However, this fact does not diminish the attractiveness of the car. For 500 thousand rubles in the secondary market, you can find Octavia FL in versions with 1, 4 or 1, 6-liter "atmospheric" engines, which bypass the more expensive turbocharged units installed on the Czech model in terms of reliability. The specified units are completed with both mechanical and automatic gearboxes. The latter option is more attractive, since the performance of the Aisin automatic transmission does not deteriorate over time. Another feature of the Octavia FL is that the model is equipped with an energy-intensive suspension, and the interior is finished with materials that do not wear out for the first few years.
9th place. Ford focus
In the secondary market, there are offers for the sale of the Ford Focus, produced in 2013-2014 and preserved in a fairly good condition. The American model is equipped with various transmissions and engines. The most reliable are the versions that include a manual transmission. After 50 thousand kilometers, a robotic box begins to create problems for the car owner. Among the advantages of the Ford Focus are its attractive appearance, good handling and energy-intensive suspension. Also, users note the presence of a high-torque engine with a volume of 2 liters. Among the disadvantages, in addition to the robotic gearbox, include a small luggage compartment that can hold no more than 372 liters of cargo.
8th place. Chevrolet cruze
As in the case of the previous models listed in this rating of cars with a mileage of up to 500,000 rubles, the Chevrolet Cruze has a well-designed exterior for its class and a modern interior. The American car was initially sold at a relatively low price, so versions with rich equipment can be found in the secondary market for the indicated amount. However, this feature is leveled by a number of shortcomings typical for the Chevrolet Cruze. In particular, car owners pay attention to the fact that after several tens of thousands of kilometers, problems arise with brake calipers, manual transmission and shock absorbers. In addition, the Cruze has a ground clearance that is too low for Russian roads, and the finishing materials quickly lose their original appearance.
7th place. Chevrolet Aveo T300
Like the previous Chevrolet model, the Aveo is selling for a relatively low price. Therefore, in the secondary market there are offers for the sale of a used hatchback with good on-board equipment. But this circumstance did not affect the popularity of the model in any way. As a result, the number of used Aveo offers always remains low. Car enthusiasts mostly complain about the design of the American model. In terms of equipment, the hatchback stands out from the previous competitors. Chevrolet Aveo is equipped with a reliable 5-speed manual or 6-range automatic transmission. With them, only a 1.6-liter "atmospheric" engine is installed on the car.
6th place. Renault Sandero
Renault Sandero, like Logan, has remained one of the most demanded cars in Russia for many years. Therefore, it is not surprising that the demand for the French model is high in the secondary market. The popularity of the hatchback is promoted by its low price, reliable and economical engines, high-quality suspension and good equipment. In addition, Sandero is assembled in Russia, so this car is inexpensive to maintain. The French model is equipped with a 1.6-liter engine developing up to 102 or 113 hp. power, robotic, or automatic transmission.
5th place. Volkswagen polo
In the secondary market, there are mainly offers for the sale of Volkswagen Polo sedans, as the manufacturer quickly phased out hatchbacks. The German model, like other VW vehicles, has a simple design. But this is perhaps the only significant drawback of the sedan, although a number of motorists pay attention to the presence of low-quality plastic in the cabin and poor noise insulation. Due to the fact that the new VW Polo is sold for about 700 thousand rubles, in the secondary market it is easy to find an offer for the sale of a used car up to 500,000 rubles, produced 3-4 years ago.
4th place. Hyundai solaris
One of the most popular models of recent years, Hyundai Solaris, remains the same in the aftermarket. The car of the first generation, even in the basic configuration, is characterized by an attractive appearance and comfortable interior, massive head optics, and a spacious trunk. Components for Hyundai Solaris are inexpensive due to local production, which makes this model even more in demand. On the secondary market, there are different ads for the sale of a sedan.
Now a used car up to 500,000 rubles can be purchased in a version equipped with a 1.6-liter engine and 6-speed "mechanics". Also on the secondary market, Solaris is sold in a version with a 5-range manual or 4-speed automatic transmission, installed on a car along with a 1.4-liter engine. The disadvantages of Solaris are the suspension.
3rd place. Kia rio
Kia Rio, in fact, is a complete analogue of Hyundai Solaris. The difference between the models can be traced only in the design of the body and interior. Moreover, both cars have the same advantages and disadvantages. Like the Solaris, the Kia Rio has a low-quality suspension that starts to create problems after about 50 thousand kilometers. The body paint of the Korean model flies off even with minor impacts.
2nd place. Lada xray
Lada Xray surpasses all previously described models in several parameters. Firstly, the clearance of the Russian hatchback reaches 195 mm, which provides the car with good off-road capabilities. Secondly, the car initially has a rich equipment, which included 4 power windows, an electric power steering, an audio system, two airbags and other equipment. Thirdly, Xray has appeared on sale recently, so practically new copies of this model are offered on the secondary market. Fourthly, the prices for spare parts for the hatchback are lower than for components for Renault cars.
1st place. Lada Vesta
The Lada Vesta is a lot like the Xray. However, the first model in the basic configuration costs less than 600 thousand rubles. This means that the specified price limit includes Lada Vesta in several versions at once, including those with an air conditioner. The Russian sedan is equipped with a really reliable engine and gearbox, which, as practice has shown, can withstand 500 thousand kilometers under certain conditions. Additionally, Vesta provides crankcase protection, standard alarm and other options.
