Secondly, such a buyer probably somehow in his own way understands the orientation of the car to solve certain problems: one needs to carry important guests, and the other an extra portion of mother-in-law and seedlings. Well, and thirdly, the car should in a certain way testify to the increased prosperity of its owner. And all of the above is only exacerbated when approaching the "very cherished" border of one and a half million. How can one determine the degree of “optimality” of a particular purchase? Our experts, displaying the top ten in the category of passenger cars from 1, 100, 000 to 1, 500, 000 rubles, are warming like a smartphone on an Android. But in the end, a list of models that best justifies the money spent is born.
Yes, we, too, are tired of giving the top of our top to the big Skoda. And we will gladly stop doing this if competitors seriously humanize their price lists or Superb itself will sensitively rise in price after emerging restyling. Because the appearance of another huge liftback on the market in the near future is definitely not expected. And if so, then meet the owner of the next champion title in rationality spent - "Skoda Superb"! Relatively recently, a cozy "automatic", which was equipped with a 1.8-liter turbo engine, lost the watch to a 6-speed DSG "robot" with wet clutches. In terms of comfort, if it is inferior to the "classic", it is not much; but in terms of rate of fire it certainly surpasses a hydromechanical colleague. Otherwise, all the Elegance accessories are in place: they include heating of all seats, bi-xenon light, parking sensors in the rear bumper, electrically adjustable front seats, and 17-inch wheels. Those who wish can spend money on a station wagon in a similar configuration - it is 70 thousand more expensive.
Nissan Teana-2.5CVT-Premium +
TEANA + camrii 413
Unlike most competitors, “Teana” for the reporting period managed not only to not go up in price, but even to fall in price - however, only by one thousand rubles. It is much more important at the same time that the sedan did not waste its many charms. Ventilated leather chairs are still welcome, the DVD player is still ready to spin rapidly aging discs, and the glass roof has not gone away. And you can also give preference to the all-wheel drive version - the most affordable is estimated at 1, 188, 000 rubles. What is missing? Still noble materials and alternatives to fake "wood."
Ford Mondeo-2, 3AT-Universari-20
Veterans do not age with a soul! This time, our attention was attracted by the special version of the sedan, released for the twentieth anniversary of the model. The machine is equipped with a well-deserved 2.3-liter engine with Japanese roots and a traditional “automatic” - what you need for a confident, albeit slightly measured ride. It is conducive to relaxation and equipment. On top of the rather generous Titanium package, the anniversary Mondeo is decorated with leather upholstery, wood inlays, heated seats and bi-xenon. And lovers of “anneal” can exchange all this for a 240-horsepower hatchback with Powershift and 18-inch wheels - such cars in the Sport version cost 1, 472, 500.
After reviewing the lineup, having thrown the Sonata out of Russia and humanized the price tag for i40, the Koreans provided their Europeanized middle-class sedan with a well-deserved place in the upper part of our top. For 1, 159, 000 rubles, the buyer is offered a sluggish motor with an helpful "automatic". But what is the grade! Seven pillows, electrically ventilated front seats, navigation, xenon light … In stock and a full 17-inch "reserve" - an important feature for travel enthusiasts. And the special version "Triumph" will also please the Infinity audio system, and adaptive light … And it will cost only 1, 249, 000 rubles.
The largest representative of the “lion's” family added a significant 35 thousand in price, but did not lose its attractiveness - fortunately for the French, the competitors also had an attack of greed. The 508 sedan in the Allure version is still distinguished by a worthy filling: here you will find leather chairs with electrification, a navigator, and even a pre-heater. All this wealth is also made of decent materials, although it lacks a power unit that could emphasize such advantages. After the disappearance of diesel engines (there, to Europe, they are expensive!), We only have to remain the turbine engine of the “Prince” series - the same as the “Mini”. Agree, not serious.
Delving into the details
The price segment, limited by an amount of one and a half million, has always been seething with intense competition. Here, even small changes in prices or trim levels lead to tectonic shifts. This year we had to say goodbye to the Passat: it has significantly risen in price and now even in the optimal version is not as tasty as similarly equipped representatives of this premium. Could not improve their position and “Camry”, although this is the best car for those who are used to ride on the couch: only he has electric rear seats. “Insignia” got to the top largely due to the unique combination of decent filling, all-wheel drive and a powerful motor - also important talents. And Audi A4 outperformed the treshka due to the nuances of the configuration and attractive price, in addition, its base engine with a capacity of 120 liters. with. elementary "chip" to 160 or more forces.
The impending decline in sales is doing its job - it smelled of the next advent of the "customer market". As always, premium sellers were the first to stir. Just two cars got into our top due to some reduction in price, and the C-class, which went up in price by 30 thousand, on the contrary, flew out of a dozen. However, according to the regulars of the show rooms, dealers are now willing to make concessions if they feel the buyer’s willingness to "grab and run." Officially, discounts are not announced, but it is known that some versions, for example, ringed "fours, " go even cheaper than a million. Those who wish to drive are generally better off looking at the 250-horsepower Focus-ST or Megan-RS: both hatching fit into our range and will bring a lot of pleasure even during track days.
