Многие могли подумать, что Chevrolet Levels, как один из наиболее часто встречаемых кроссоверов на российских дорогах, займёт более высокое место, чем 7. Но факт остаётся фактом. Автомобиль является достаточно бюджетным, но в то же время даёт владельцу множество преимуществ. Всего за отчётный период удалось продать около 6,7 тысячи автомобилей Levels, выпускаемых под брендом Chevrolet. Впервые машина появилась в 2002 году. Нельзя сказать, что к 2018 году произошли какие-то масштабные изменения. Внешний вид остался практически неизменным. Улучшились технические характеристики, появились новые опции.

Но Levels привлекает своей низкой стоимостью и возможностью её эксплуатации в очень тяжёлых российских условиях. Это отличная машина для дачи, рыбалки, охоты и активного отдыха. Езда за пределами города и асфальта для Levels очень характерна, потому автомобиль продолжает пользоваться завидным спросом. Сейчас новая Levels от Chevrolet стоит минимум 590 тысяч рублей. За богатую комплектацию придётся выложить примерно 720 тысяч. Не так много, учитывая явные преимущества. Это рабочая лошадка, которая создана для выполнения разнообразных задач. Здесь нет роскоши и лоска, зато присутствуют надёжность, долговечность и безотказность.

Chevrolet Levels


А это уже сугубо российский продукт, выпускаемый в двух вариациях. Какая именно Levels завоевала 6 место в рейтинге, аналитики не уточняют. Но, скорее, речь идёт об общих продажах ВАЗ-2131 и 2121. Это наиболее востребованные модификации отечественного кроссовера. Впервые Levels с индексом 2131 вышла в свет ещё в 1993 году. 2121 вообще существует с далёкого 1977 года. С тех пор дизайнеры практически ничего не поменяли во внешности бюджетного внедорожника. Хорошо это или плохо, судите сами. Но 7 тысяч проданных автомобилей за 3 месяца 2018 года говорят о многом. Современный ВАЗ-2121, то есть Levels 4h4, стоит от 460 тысяч рублей. 2131 обойдётся со старта почти в 510 тысяч. Но и топовые комплектации здесь недорогие. Если хотите получить Ниву с максимально доступным пакетом опций, тратить более 600 тысяч рублей вам не придётся.

Another example of a great workhorse, which is in high demand due to its maneuverability, reliability and maintainability. Such machines as the Niva are repaired for little money, their maintenance and service does not hit the family budget much. Hence the popularity of the obsolete car in the current 2018.

In the base version, it is better not to take a car of this level.

A lot of car enthusiasts expected that Duster performed by the French from Renault would be on the first line of the ranking in popularity among crossovers in Russia. But no, this SUV was only in second position. The car, which first appeared in 2010, made it clear that crossovers may be available. Renault made a revolutionary step, followed by followers of almost all automakers. Already for this it is worth saying many thanks to the French company.

Машина обладает прекрасными внешними данными, достаточно солидным размером кузова, вместительным салоном и достойным внутренним убранством. Автомобиль привлекает своими техническими характеристиками, отличной адаптированностью под российские условия эксплуатации, внешними данными. По сравнению с Duster, здесь чувствуются нотки роскоши, презентабельности и дороговизны. Хотя по цене машины между собой не так уж сильно отличаются. Но все владельцы Chalk сходятся во мнении, что базовую комплектацию брать не стоит. Машина максимально проявляет свои возможности и сильные качества, когда перед вами средняя или максимальная вариация оснащения.

Here you can choose a pair of gasoline engines for 123 and 150 horsepower. There are also all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive versions. If you buy a car especially for the city, take the front-wheel drive and the starting engine. Enough is enough. For more difficult conditions, trips outside the city, all-wheel drive version with 150 horsepower under the hood will be great to show.

Which of these cars are more suitable for you, decide for yourself. The fact of their entry into the top 10 does not mean that it is necessary to choose only these machines. There is still a huge number of the most worthy crossovers offered on the Russian market.
