Early last year Hyundai Crete I began to pass the test in the harsh conditions of Russian roads. Total test models should run on our gullies quarter of a million kilometers. At the moment, it is already half the distance from this distance. The car proves that the Russian lack of roads is in the teeth. For example, in January 2015 two test Hyundai Crete passed the whole country from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg in seventeen days. The total length of the run was 10,600 kilometers. For all the time not a single failure happened, even some minor. However, some changes in the design Hyundai Crete according to the results of this test were still made. They relate to eliminating the effects of salts and reagents, which are sprinkled on our roads, on the suspension and body of a new car.
