Crossovers Frankfurt-2017, which Russia will not come. Which is a pity

The current international motor show in Frankfurt (IAA-2017) was the site of the debut of mass crossovers, that’s just not all of them will be delivered to us. We have selected five models that could use in our market good demand.

Stonic Kia: Rio c tonic

The loudest premiere of Kia in Frankfurt was the petite crossover Stonic, consistently collected around him the crowd interested. It is based on the platform of Rio, and apparently they are very similar. Stanica length 4140 mm, height — 1520 mm. the driven wheels front — wheel drive Koreans don’t even offer for a fee.

The interior design is almost one to one repeats the style of European Rio. Set of equipment too. Nevertheless, due to the higher roof in the cabin Stanica more air, it does not feel boxed in.

European buyers Stonic offers four engines to choose from in the power range 84-128 HP And the greatest impact — the 1.6 turbodiesel, which the Koreans are doing a special rate. The Russians are sad about the lack Stanica should not — in a few months we will debut the same type of machine which will be a raised hatchback Rio.

Hyundai Kona: fussy

Hyundai has a reputation for conservative: her car is always distinguished by the discreet appearance that allows you to attract the widest possible audience. But in the case of a compact crossover Kona they decided to change strategy, giving him defiantly extravagant appearance. Two-storey head optics is reminiscent of the Jeep Cherokee, whose appearance did not abuse only the lazy. Here. colleagues-journalists called a smirk. Koreans it did not bother. On the contrary, they believe that the external shock will help to bring outside the box thinking people who want to stand out from the crowd.

Kona dimensions slightly inferior to the popular Crete: length — 4165 mm, height — 1550 mm vs 4270 mm and 1630, respectively. Interior design is not so extreme. Then all the decorum-noble. Is that plastic trim was confused: he is too easily scratched door panel exhibition of the machine was covered with grooves, by the end of the first press day.

Kona is based on the same platform with Stonik, but twin brothers these machines still are not. Thus, in contrast to the relative, Hyundai will be available not only with front-wheel drive, but with a complete. And motors at Kona powerful. For example, in the base version there is a three-cylinder 120-horsepower engine. For a fee you can also get a 1.6-liter turbo with 177 HP recoil Well and next year will be a version on electric.

Opel Grandland X: hi from the mainland

In fact, Opel Grandland X was presented in late spring, however, the public display of the flagship crossover from Rüsselsheim held just now. Despite the “big” name, but in reality a newcomer small: length 4477 mm, width — 1844, height — 1636, wheelbase — 2675 mm. same figure and the Peugeot 3008 platform, which is based Grandland X. What does that mean? And the fact that opalewski crossover comes exclusively with front-wheel drive. Here for all-terrain component of the rap system Grip Control, changing the settings of drive electronics, depending on the selected driving mode.

The interior impresses with great ergonomics and high quality finish, but not design — it now looks old-fashioned. A feeling that Opel still can not part with his past and fears of the future. Well at least for equipping all right: adaptive cruise control, camera circular review, Samarkandek, the function for contactless opening of the trunk (its volume, by the way, 514 l).

At first, the choice of buyers are offered two engine. All-aluminium petrol turbo-unit with a working volume of 1.2 liter produces 130 HP In a 1.6-litre turbo-diesel 120 horses. The standard car comes with mechanics, 6-speed automatic — for a fee.

Seat Arona: the game of skittles

For many years the Seat all the models names in honor of the Spanish city. Not interrupted this tradition and now — a new B-crossover Arona is the name of a small town on the island of Tenerife. To admit, when you first look at Aaron I was thinking of the hatchback Ibiza. And no wonder: the design of these machines are made in a similar style. Yes, and they are built on a common platform MQB-A0. But, as expected, the dimensions of the crossover exceeds Ibiza: the length of the body is 4138 mm and a height of 1543.

Once in the driver’s seat, you begin to curse the man who invented those stupid triangular mirrors — they are almost can not see anything! But otherwise driving good. Beautiful, high-quality, richly equipped car! Especially liked the intelligent interface infotainment system with protocols Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and with a bright 8-inch screen.

On the question of the presence of a full drive the firm’s representatives shrug their shoulders, say, for a small urban SUV, it does not need. “But we take lots of modifications,” — they are justified. Indeed, five engine variants can not be beneficial. Opens a range of petrol trekharkovy the 1.0 TSI turbo engine, which delivers 95 or 115 HP Has a version and bigger: 1.5 TSI (150 HP). Fans of diesel engines addressed to the 1.6 TDI unit, developing 95 or 115 HP And you would be which version choose?

Volkswagen T-Roc: not heavy rock

Until recently it seemed that the next crossover will be the VW Taigun baby, but its premiere was postponed. Expected in Frankfurt and showing the third generation of the Touareg — and then by! And yet no debuts the company from Wolfsburg visitors have left: pride of place on the podium took the crossover In the segment — T-Roc.

Beautiful car! It is only slightly smaller than the Tiguan, but it looks not interesting example. Especially great look “exaggerated” wings and deaf-pillar, which the Germans decorated with contrasting overlays. The salon is also not trivial that for Volkswagen is an achievement in itself. Two-tone finish, the asymmetrical centre console, virtual devices, who dares to say that the Germans make only boring cars?

Unlike many rivals, the T-Roc can be purchased not only with front-wheel drive, but with such versions in the cabin there is the control of operating modes of the powertrain. One of the chips can be regarded as optional adaptive dampers DCC, which in this segment are extremely rare.

For the T-Roc offers three petrol engines (115, 150 or 190 HP) and three diesel, with the same gradation of power. In future we expect the appearance of sports modified with a 300-horsepower engine. The guys from VW, maybe you change your mind and start shipping T-Rock? We vehicle need!
