More than 640,000 Hyundai Solaris cars have been sold in Russia over the past six years. New model Hyundai Solaris 2017 tested domestic experts on the Russian roads of our country.
Many people ask whether the Solaris is really a new car or is it just a deep restyling of the previous model? Manufacturers say that the second generation Hyundai Solaris is a completely new car. He has a chance to keep his name "folk" car, despite all the changes, starting with the exterior and ending with the price category.
In early 2017, we already reviewed the second-generation Hyundai Solaris, then there was little information, but now we can tell a lot more.
Modern model for the domestic market
The new car will be offered to Russian citizens only as a sedan. Other body styles will be available to other countries, such as China. Localization of the updated model at the plant in St. Petersburg is 48%.
New Hyundai Solaris выглядит порядком повзрослевшим, так как его дизайн взят с Elantra. Кроме изменений во внешности, рестайлингу подверглась и сама структура кузова. Для него использовали сталь высокой прочности, которая смогла сделать новую модель Соляриса намного жестче. Такие изменения отлично сказались на управляемости автомобиля и его безопасности.
The body for the domestic sales market is made entirely of galvanized steel. Solaris manufacturers have also provided for an increase in the washer tank to 4.6 liters. Fog lights and chrome parts in the interior of the cabin are provided in the expensive version of the car.
The appearance and size of Solaris
Chinese version of Hyundai Solaris отличается головной оптикой, радиатором и бампером. Такие различия зависят от разных рынков продаж. Автомобиль в Китае обладает своим стилем, а машина в России имеет совершенно другой стиль.
The second generation Hyundai Solaris has become a bit larger in size. The machine has increased by 3 cm in length, has become wider by 29mm.
Dimensions of Solaris:
- length 4405 mm;
- width is 1729 mm;
- height is 1469 mm.
Also, the manufacturer did not forget about the wheelbase, which was increased by 3 cm, and began to have a length of 2600 mm.
Hyundai Solaris won 15-inch steel alloy wheels and 16-inch alloy wheels. To determine where the damage is located you do not need to go to the car wash, you need to turn on the ABS system. The disadvantage of this method is that it has less accuracy.
Hyundai Solaris rear lights are made using LEDs. They are included only in the expensive car equipment. For the basic version of the Solaris presented a simple head optics. Head optics with lenses, cornering lights and LED lights are made in the Elange version. Xenon head optics is not provided even for an additional fee.
Salon and interior of the new 2017 Hyundai Solaris
В салоне нового Hyundai Solaris 2017, пластиковые элементы обладают высокой жесткостью и приятной фактурой. Подлокотники в дверях разработчики сделали более мягкими и убрали серебристые элементы. Машина перестала скрипеть на кочках и ямах, поддон перед коробкой передач был немного увеличен.
The sliding armrest has increased in size, but unfortunately, part of the glove box below it is occupied by the handbrake of the car. Climate control in Solaris has excellent “handles”, large keys and a large display. Under it are located below the buttons heated seats, steering wheel and front window.
The design of deflectors for rear passengers remained unchanged. Now the air in the Solaris will flow evenly. But the seals on the doors still miss the dirt, providing an opportunity to mess your clothes.
For the modern model of Hyundai Solaris, the keyless entry function has become available. The key located on the door handle can open all the doors in the car. Unfortunately the handles, when opened, retained their loud knock at the moment of returning to the starting position.
The steering wheel has a leather sheath, which is very comfortable for hands and tends to not slip. Wheel in Hyundai Solaris, you can adjust the corner and on the flight. An adjustable driver's seat without much difficulty will be able to choose the necessary indicators for people of any height.
The instrument scale has an enlarged display of the onboard computer. Information from new Solaris hardware is read instantly. The key for adjusting the backlight is on the left side of the steering wheel. The new dashboard is available for the base of Comfort and more expensive models.
In the car Hyundai Solaris second generation manufacturer has placed the side of the bottom cushion is not much lower. Thanks to this, the legs do not get tired and are not pulled up. Despite the fact that there is more space, people will rise from 180 cm in height to rest their heads on the sloping roof of the car. Also for the rear row of passengers of the Solaris armrests are not provided.
It is worth noting that the adjustment for back pressure is not provided in the new model. The back of the chair Hyundai Solaris perfectly holds the entire back and has a slightly ejecting profile. He is able, after a few kilometers, to heavily load his back and waist.
Heated rear seats, in the configuration with the 1.4-liter engine, is not provided, apparently Hyundai believes that the strength of the car is enough to heat only the first row seats. The rear view camera has convenient marking guides. The whole picture when the car is “parked” can be seen on the display of the multimedia system.
Baggage edema acquired a volume of 480 liters. Inside it are mounting straps and trunk lid hinges, which are directed inside. Under the bottom of the new Hyundai Solaris, the full-size spare tire fits perfectly. When folding the back of the sofa form a small ledge.Recommended article: Kia Sportage 2017 with a new design and features.
Variants of models and updated technical part of the car
Новый Hyundai Solaris 2017 He became the owner of a modern multimedia system with a 7-inch display. The car is equipped with a navigator with updated maps. It is capable of communicating with Apple and Android operating systems. All this equipment responds to inquiries and the owner’s teams very quickly, the graphics of Hyundai Solaris multimedia are at the highest level.
Heated steering wheel was installed in the previous version. But on the new model Hyundai Solaris, heating is located on the outside and on the inside. The buttons necessary for controlling the onboard computer, which sets the route, were moved to the right knitting needle. On the left side are conveniently located keys to control the audio system and smartphone. In the future, cruise control will be on the right side, as long as a plug is installed there.
The comfort and elegance of the new Hyundai Solaris will include heating elements for the washer tank and front window. Several years ago it was necessary to pay extra for heating the glass, despite the fact that the heating element for the washer tank was included in the basic configuration for models with 1.4 engines with automatic transmission and a 1.6-liter engine with manual transmission and automatic transmission.
In the previous model, the Solaris had the function of heating the rest zone at the “janitors”, which was included in the basic version of the car. But in a modern car such an option was considered unnecessary and it was removed.
Heated seats of the first row in the new Hyundai Solaris is available for versions from Active Plus and more expensive. The heating element now works evenly and its heating threads reach the very bottom of the seat back. Also, the manufacturer of Solaris has provided heating for the second-row sofa in 2 steps. Only the seat itself is heated, and the backrest remains as cold. This option is available only for an additional fee of 40 thousand rubles.
During the test drive of the new Hyundai Solaris, we wondered: Why is there no premium audio system in the car?
The new Hyundai Solaris belongs to the budget machines, so the manufacturer has not provided for such an audio system. The machine can be equipped with the simplest audio system, which has 6 speakers.
У Hyundai Solaris второго поколения много перемен под капотом. Гидроусилитель рулевого колеса поменяли на электромотор. Благодаря ему руль сталь намного легче, отлично поворачивается при парковке и отнимает минимум энергии у аккумулятора.
Engines and gearboxes - fuel consumption and acceleration
Manufacturer Hyundai has provided for the machine and manual transmission engines with 6-speed. Automatic transmission has a modern torque converter. He is able to smoothly and very quickly shift gears. For vehicles with a 1.4-liter engine, shorter main pairs are available.
The new Solaris gasoline engine belongs to the Kappa D-CVVT class. It is equipped with a fuel fluid dispenser, a timing drive, a plastic element that is designed to intake fluid. Also installed cooling pistons and phase shifters on all camshafts.
Previous models of Solaris had a 107 hp engine, for a new Solaris, the limitation is 99.7 hp. This was done specifically for domestic consumers to reduce vehicle tax on the car and increase its sales. Due to this, many car owners and parks with a taxi will be able to save decent money.
В движке размером в 1,6-литра осталось неизменной цепь ГРМ. Мотор Hyundai Solaris стал обладать обновленными распредвалами и поршнями, трактом впуска с разной длиной, новым комплектом фазовращателя с выпускной функцией. Мощность имеет показатели в 123 л.с. при 6300 об/мин.
Solaris with a 1.4-liter engine and manual transmission is able to reach peak power at 6000 rpm, torque dropped to 132 Nm, which develops at 4000 rpm.
The previous version of Solaris accelerated to 100 km / h in 11.5 seconds, when the new model requires 12.2 seconds. Specialists who conducted "Самый полный тест-драйв нового Hyundai Solaris 2017"On domestic roads, they noted that such indicators had no effect on the ride, despite the fact that traction at low revs was not always enough.
The 1.6-liter engine has the same power as the 1.4. Its torque is 151 Nm when it reaches 4850 rpm. He can dial 100 km / h in just 10.3 seconds with a manual transmission and it takes 11.2 seconds for the machine. The new Solaris feels much more confident at the beginning of the journey and when overtaking cars, in spite of this it will be necessary to switch gearboxes more often.
Mechanical box showed itself perfectly on the test drive of the Hyundai Solaris, thanks to its smooth shifting. Clutch made much easier without losing their qualities. The automatic transmission of the new Solaris has an even gearshift.
Domestic experts say that if you slightly press the gas pedal, the box needs just a couple of seconds to shift the gear down. But if you push the gas pedal to the floor, then the automatic transmission will immediately switch several gears down. Due to this, the new Hyundai Solaris on the track gives a very quick acceleration, despite the fact that at 5000 rpm the engine starts to roar.
During the test drive of the new Hyundai Solaris fuel consumption was measured on the onboard computer of the car. Basically, the new model overcame the country tracks. At that moment, only the driver and several small bags were in the car. Hyundai Solaris on the road accelerated actively, not sparing the accelerator.
After the trip, the Solaris computer showed fuel consumption of 5.5 liters per 100 km, and a 1.4-liter engine, when the flow rate claimed by the manufacturer was between 4.8 and 7.2 liters per 100 km. For a car with a 1.6-liter engine and a manual transmission, the on-board computer showed a fuel consumption of 7.1 liters per 100 km, when the passport indicated 8.4 to 8.6 liters per 100 km. For models with automatic transmission rates are 7.6 liters per 100 km, when declared according to the manufacturer from 5.3 to 8.9 liters per 100 km. It is worth noting that the volume of the fuel tank in the new model of the second generation reached a level of 50 liters.Recommended article: Cheap American cars look very impressive.
Suspension and steering - control and comfort of the new model
The previous Hyundai Solaris suspension scheme in the car remained unchanged, and on the "lower floor" you can see a large number of updates. The developers have envisaged the expansion of the gauge, an increase in the angle of the castor, a change in the gearbox support and the arrangement of the steering mechanism. The most important thing that made the manufacturer Hyundai Solaris - redid the rear suspension. This design has a similar design in the Elantra and Greta. Automobile shock absorbers added in length. Now they are located almost upright.
Отечественные организаторы тест-драйва нового Hyundai Solaris 2017, не зря выбрали Псковские автомобильные дороги. Только там представлены различные условия и качества дорожного покрытия. Hyundai Solaris 2017 отлично прошел все испытания и показал себя только с лучшей стороны. Новая модель Солярис совершенно по-другому чувствует себя на дороге. Он может часами кататься по плохим дорогам без раскачивания, усталости и расхлябанности подвески.
Подвеска Hyundai Solaris поддерживает стыки микропрофиля полотна, на больших неровностях дороги она начинает встряхивать машину и греметь. Подвеска дает знак, что автомобиль не является внедорожником и не подходит для езды по бездорожью. Специалисты из России рекомендуют выбирать 15-колеса, потому что они обладают повышенным профилем, и современная модель Solaris не будет так часто собирать ямы и кочки.
The steering wheel of Solaris almost completely does not feel any irregularities. This was made possible thanks to the electric booster. In the zero position, the steering wheel is not clamped and not loaded. He has a quick and accurate response.
The stabilization system silently and smoothly corrects the car, which entered the turn at high speed. On the occurrence of such a drift, most drivers of Hyundai Solaris will learn only by the lighting of the yellow light bulb on the devices. ABS when the brakes are pressed perfectly keeps the car in its lane, despite its noisy and rough work.
Новый Hyundai Solaris 2017 does not like side winds. He responds to them with distinct tips. On road ruts, the car feels insecure. At times, on a straight track, it is necessary to make a course microcorrection, with sudden changes from one lane to another, it slightly “pulls” the stern. On rubber Solaris with wheels of 16 inches of leads becomes much smaller.
Самым большим минусом, который обладает Hyundai Solaris второго поколения - это посредственная шумоизоляция. На скорости от 60 до 80 км/ч появляется шум на дорожном покрытии от шипованных колес, подвески и рычания двигателя машины. А после того, как скорость перевалит за отметку в 100 км/ч ко всем этим звукам прибавиться аэродинамический шум. Отечественные специалисты при тесте Hyundai Solaris отметили, что такая езда в течении продолжительного времени может стать настоящим испытанием не только для водителя, но и для пассажиров автомобиля.
Hyundai Solaris Security System
The new car (Hyundai Solaris) perfectly finished the crash test with the use of the special ERA-GLONASS complex for car owners from Russia. Despite the fact that it was held at a speed of 56 km / h, when the European rating EuroNCar recommends 64 km / h.
In the future, the result of the crash tests from the Americans and the Chinese is to be known. Only such a EuroNCar test is still unknown, no one knows whether Solaris will be represented in Europe.
The old model Hyundai Solaris six years ago earned only 2 stars out of 4 and 8.5 points out of 16. Domestic experts believe that the new model will be able to achieve a better result, due to the new body and updated platform.
Hyundai Solaris Security System осталась, как и у предыдущей машины. Для базовой комплектации предусмотрены подушки безопасности, которые располагаются во фронтальной части автомобиля, а за дополнительную плату в 40 тысяч в Comfort и Elegance будут установлены подушки по бокам и шторки, предназначенные для экстренных случаев. Преднатяжительных ремней и их система ограничения до сих пор не предусмотрены.
Despite this, the basic security list of the new Solaris has increased several times. The cheap version includes stabilization with anti-slip function, the option of elevating to high ground and automatic start of emergency lights when the brake pedal is sharply pressed.
