All autonovelties-2020: calendar “Behind the wheel”

Updated Lada 4×4 and Chevrolet Niva, the new Renault Duster, Volkswagen Jetta, Skoda Karoq… — in the coming year, we will have a lot Premier.Cyril Mileshkin “Behind the wheel”Maxim Sachkov “Behind the wheel”

The past year has been stingy on the premiere in the mass segment. Pleased only Renault Arkana — the first available cross-coupe on the market.

The rest of the novelties — of the cheap. Toyota RAV4 much leapt in price, and it is unclear whether it can regain the lead from Sportiga and Tiguan. Crossover Haval F7 Tula Assembly shot very well by the standards of Chinese vehicles; sales have gone active, but top 25 for him so far away.

The coming year promises to be more fruitful — and the budget models and the expensive.

Our town

For Lada , the year begins with the launch of the updated SUV 4×4, which we still call the Field. A new instrument panel, seats and trim, ceiling, and also airbag (!) and bumper with integrated foglights. At the time of publication of the material any prices or other official information about the SUV was not.

For the rest of the year AVTOVAZ plans are still unclear. But it is obvious that the high-profile Prime Minister should not wait. Restyled Vesta can appear in autumn, but sales will start only in 2021: to pause since the launch of the versions with a CVT.

UAZ April starts to put the slot Punch on the Truck. Marketers saw the potential, and the plant responds to client requests. A patriot to the end of the year, going to try the turbo engine ZMZ capacity of about 180 HP (as of Nov engine passed bench tests). In the commercial segment fruit version Pro, the most interesting of which is elongated, a hoisting machine with a gable at rear.

UAZ Pickup will receive an automatic transmission: the market is asking for! And if the two pedal drive performance will be sold Gazelle (this is all), in Ulyanovsk will surely offer boxes and Punch for the Pros.UAZ Pickup will receive an automatic transmission: the market is asking for!

A year ago, when AVTOVAZ was submitted to the Ministry an application for spetsinvestproject, flashed the name of one of the future models — Lada Van. It is assumed that in Togliatti under the brand Renault Dokker localize (pictured). In this case, Largus can bury, although seven seats Dokker has not. If replacement happens, it is unlikely in 2020.A year ago, when AVTOVAZ was submitted to the Ministry an application for spetsinvestproject, flashed the name of one of the future models — Lada Van.

If replacement happens, it is unlikely in 2020.

According to our sources, GM-AVTOVAZ has made a long-awaited restyling of the SUV Chevrolet Niva. Changed only the front part of the body. The future of the company uncertain. Americans got rid of its stake in the JV, which means that the car will lose the emblem with a cross. The most obvious (though unconfirmed) the buyer — the Renault-Nissan Alliance. And then Niva will be able to try any of his emblems. Until Datsun. The main thing is that the new owner is able to delay the release of the updated car indefinitely. So our assumption about the second half optimistic.

Do not wait!

Review mass cars will start with a minus sign — with those we will not see. Volkswagen Tharu, subcompact crossover class below the Tiguan in Russia to register will not have time, waiting for 2021. At Kia , wondering about the prospects of XCeed model in our market. But if localized and sold even Picanto and image shuting-break ProCeed, Pseudorasbora unlikely to refuse “a visa”.

Promising Tharu Volkswagen and Kia XCeed to us in a hurry. Odd: both of the crossover segment and belong to the brands the market leaders.Promising Tharu Volkswagen and Kia XCeed to us in a hurry. Odd: both of the crossover segment and belong to the brands the market leaders.

Uzbek Ravon in September held a presentation of new-old models in honor of the restart in Russia after a year and a half absence. Directly at the event announced the results of the first days, but even the AEB statistics for November are zeros. So don’t expect an early arrival of the promised novelties — turned crossovers and sedans Chevrolet.

Haval cheerfully began with a stylish crossovers and F7 F7x, moved to Russia Assembly frame SUV H9, but is silent about the future. Whether the situation in the Chinese market is more open, it would be possible to speculate. Logical localization SUV Haval H6 of the second generation, although the timing is difficult to assume.

The clouds are gathering over the brand name Datsun. After the overthrow of Carlos Ghosn at Nissan started a change of strategy and values. Mark revived for the public sector in different countries, the expected profits are not brought. We started talking about the end. And Russia is unlikely to be an exception, if the decision would be at the top.

Exit to the people

In Europe in the autumn awaiting the debut of the Logan and Sandero of new generation. Dacia they plan to show at the Paris motor show. It’s time! And it’s not even pravesa design and questionable ergonomics environmental pressure. For cheap model is prepared even a hybrid version. And it needs to change the old B0 platform/Global Access on the modular CMF-B. this metamorphosis a little worried. As in the case of Capture, new items on the way to Russia get rid of the modern platform in favor of time-tested.

In 2019, a Russian subsidiary of Renault has thrown all forces to run the harnesses. Which model will be a priority in the present? Most likely, it will not be restyled Kaptur, and the new Duster: he’s older and better sold.

Volkswagen begins the year with the launch of the fresh Jetta. Prices promise an interesting, but dumping do not wait. Car driven to us from Mexico, where pre-sent with the Kaluga plant motors 1.6. That’s logistics! However, there is a story: in addition to a 5-speed mechanics offers not the usual preselection DSG, and the classic 6-speed automatic.

By mid-year in the range of Volkswagen will be two fresh sedan — Polo and Jetta. The new Polo (the left photo) forces to change the balance of power in the five of leaders of the Russian market.By mid-year in the range of Volkswagen will be two fresh sedan — Polo and Jetta.

Really interesting, the Germans were saved for the end of spring. Finally declassified the Volkswagen Polo sedan the next generation! Broad localization, we are interested powertrains, a wide range of options — all will remain with him. Barring a strong rise in price, the new Polo Kaluga Assembly can devour the St. Petersburg Solaris, with whom his predecessor, is fighting for fifth place in the sales statistics. And maybe choke: this year, Solaris and Rio will survive restyling.

Skoda is not far behind: the battle for buyers of budget cars will enter a new Rapid. On the approach fresh and Octavia, whose debut we have planned for the fourth quarter. Well, the first sign of 2020 will be a crossover Karoq — grown successor to the Yeti and a more affordable alternative model Kodiaq.

In the middle of the year waiting for the launch of crossover Kia Seltos. It will be more expensive than Crete for the same units, but more interesting in appearance, better equipment and under that plays a role in the segment of affordable cars. A potential leader in its class!

Kia Seltos able to break into the top ranks of the sales rankings, surpassing Cretu. Release our market is expected in mid-year.Kia Seltos able to break into the top ranks of the sales rankings, surpassing Cretu. Release our market is expected in mid-year.

A step above

This is the premiere of top 25 market is not exhausted. Kia Optima, the new generation were surprised by the design. She first gravitated to ultimately the newest and now the sedan has become like him even more. The new Optima has more options and a solid increase in size. Watch Out Toyota Camry! In October, the old Optima lost her just a little bit (2685 2658 sold Camry vs Optim), and the new is probably going to increase. Coupled with the overthrow of the RAV4 for the Japanese, it will fail.

In the first half to Russian dealers need to get updated once again survivor Mitsubishi ASX. In Geneva in March showed a SUV with a modified appearance, and in Guangzhou in November — and with another salon. Hopefully, we will get a machine with both new clothes.

In less than a year Mitsubishi ASX managed to freshen up both outside and inside. Ten years of age is not so noticeable, and it will help the car to stay afloat another couple of years.In less than a year Mitsubishi ASX managed to freshen up both outside and inside. Ten years of age is not so noticeable, and it will help the car to stay afloat another couple of years.

By the end of the year waiting for the new Outlander on the platform of the Alliance Renault-Nissan. In the fall Nissan may reveal the next iteration of the crossover Qashqai. Current Kashkay for seven years — it’s time to think about retirement. But we’ll live with him again some time: to us new machines come with a serious delay.

From the more expensive machines can with great certainty assume the world debut of the new Mazda 6 sedan and Kia Sorento crossover Prime. Under the question mark — the next generation of the Citroen C4 and the Hyundai Tucson. But the first crossover Genesis GV80 put on the conveyor belt in December, and in the first quarter of 2020, he has already sold.

When waiting for fresh Land Cruiser 300? Toyota remained silent. According to our estimates — in the fourth quarter, along with luxury soplatformennika Lexus LX.

And joined China

In 2019 on cars comes from China accounted for one-fifth of novelties on the Russian market! The pace the Chinese are not going to slow down. Surely the Prime Minister will be even more than is now known.

Chery intends to shoot doublet expensive platform crossovers — TDO 8 and its variation under the premium sub-brand Exeed TXL. But the sedan Arrizo GX in question: the mission understands that the demand will be limited, not comparable with the interest in the SUV. However, not all that scary: FAW ‘ll take my chances with the sedan B30.

Exeed is another attempt by Chery to launch a premium sub-brand. Now the pilot project has hit Russia. In the photo — model TXL, the certification process which is already running.Exeed is another attempt by Chery to launch a premium sub-brand. Now the pilot project has hit Russia.

Fans of minivans in Russia. But the lack of diversity and a pronounced monopoly the monocab GAC GM8 there is a chance not to be missed.Fans of minivans in Russia. But the lack of diversity and a pronounced monopoly the monocab GAC GM8 there is a chance not to be missed.

Another experiment will crank the GAC. In the line after the flagship crossover GS8 appears van GM8. More precisely, biznesmen — with particularly comfortable seats of the second row and in the rich set. Let’s see whether the Chinese market is a more affordable alternative to Multivan, the Alphard and the V‑class. Other brands are not inclined to risk. Geely, Changan, JAC and DFM announce only crossovers.

* * *

That is our forecast. Of course, in the course of the year much will happen, companies change plans and some of our assumptions do not come true. But a large part of the Prime Minister will be held within the specified period.
