And then the Dacia appeared to the world, it is Renault Logan - a full-size C-class car, modern, but simple, spacious, but cheap. True, 5, 000 euros is only for Romanians, in Russia Logan will cost about 7, 500, as in Germany.

Realizing the reality of entering the car market at a cost of 440 euros lower than the closest competitor - Lada-110 Li 8V (that is, our “top ten”), and in terms of build quality and reliability, perhaps superior to it, representatives of the Union of German automakers became agitated and began to build forecasts somewhat reminiscent of propaganda. Like, a self-respecting German will not change to a car whose braking distance is a quarter more than usual for a modern car, where there is no stabilization system, and in general it is not yet known how many stars will be pulled by its passive safety. Professor Bernd Gottschalk, President of the Union, said: “The Germans are too concerned about their safety to change to unsafe cars!”

But "Logan" did its dirty work, unleashing the real struggle for lower prices on the principle: who did not have time, he was late. And this was very opportune if we take into account the state of the economy in the EU countries and a noticeable reduction in sales rates.

TREND, HOWEVER

The number of manufacturers offering cars at a price below 10, 000 euros (talking about prices in Europe) has begun to increase markedly. Previously, they sought to equip the machines "to the maximum", but now they began to fight in the lower price range. Ford has already released the Ka Student version for only 8, 000 Euros, but there’s a whole bunch of new products ahead that rushed into the gap breached by Logan. This is the co-born trinity of Toyota, Peugeot and Citroen. The basic Japanese version of the Aigo will cost less than 10, 000 euros, just like the Citroen-C1, and the Peugeot 107 will start from 8, 000.

I remembered my name and Volkswagen - this year it will offer Fox to the Brazilian assembly for 9, 000-10, 000 euros. For Koreans, and that's a lot! The plans of the Hyundai are Athos Ole at a price of 6990 euros and Goetz Tim 06 for 9990. Daewoo, or rather, Chevrolet attacks with a new Matiz for 7890 and Kalos for 9490 euros. “KIA Picanto” will cost from 8700 euros. But that is not all. The Italians seduce buyers with the car of the year - “FIAT-Panda” worth from 8590 euros. And the plans are even more miniature model based on the concept of "Trepune", shown in Geneva last year.

DAVID AGAINST HOLIAPH

Why did Renault make Logan as spacious as our Frets? After all, the rest of the cheap cars are babies. To answer this question, let's think: what is the cost of a car determined today? The amount of metal and paint expended is far from the main thing. Making a small car that meets modern safety requirements is more difficult than a large one. After all, it has fewer deformation zones that absorb the impact energy, which means that the “cage” of the cabin should be stronger, more complicated than the pillow. The density of the layout of the engine compartment is also significantly higher, and the complexity of the "details" is comparable to machines of a higher class. Recall that laptops are always more expensive than peers in terms of desktop capabilities.
