If four-wheel drive is not required, then with this budget, there is one good option --- our Lada Vesta SW Cross . And a new one! Technically, this is not a crossover. But the geometric cross-country ability of the Vesta is not worse than that of many modern crossovers. You can choose the Luxe version with a 122-horsepower engine and manual transmission. In such a car will be almost all the benefits of civilization. And if you want a car with an automatic --- then the version with a 113-horsepower 1.6 engine and CVT is suitable. However, the configuration will be simpler-Comfort/Winter without rain and light sensors. But in General, this car will be well equipped: with heated steering wheel and cruise control.
Renault Duster --- all the faults
The most obvious and simple option, if you want cheaper and fresher, is a bestseller Renault Duster . From cons: frankly budget salon and mediocre ergonomics. Among the advantages-absolutely impenetrable and unbreakable suspension, reliability and low maintenance costs.
For 900 thousand rubles, you can pick up a Duster in good condition --- a two-year-old with a mileage of 40-50 thousand kilometers. From the engines, it is best to choose between a two-liter gasoline or a one-and-a-half-liter diesel of 109 HP.the Gasoline engine can be paired with an archaic four-speed automatic. So it is better to prefer the version with a manual transmission.
Used Toyota RAV4 --- all the problems and weaknesses
"Rafik" has gained fame as a reliable crossover. For 900 thousand rubles, you can choose a restyled car of the third generation of the last years of production --- 2012 or 2013, with a mileage of 130-160 thousand km.
There are several engines in the range, but it is better to choose the 2.0 or 2.4 liter petrol version. Both of these engines, with proper maintenance and operation, easily overcome the mark of 300 thousand kilometers. The two-liter unit is paired with a variator. This is a relatively reliable transmission, but it does not like long-term skidding. Therefore, you do not need to get carried away with long off-road trips. With a 2.4-liter engine, an old four-speed automatic was installed. Unit very reliable , and its resource is comparable to that of the engine. The main thing is not to forget to change the oil every 60 thousand km.
The only weak point of the car is the steering rack, which can rattle after 100 thousand km. On sale there are repair kits with new steering rods. But experience suggests that this is a temporary solution. Sooner or later, the rail will have to be replaced, and this is not cheap.
Not the most popular crossover we have, but in vain. The Subaru XV is a great choice in every way. With this budget, you can count on a six-to seven-year-old copy with a mileage of 100-140 thousand kilometers. Most cars with a two-liter gasoline engine and a CVT Lineatronic . This option is the most reliable and successful from all points of view. The only weak link of the engine may be increased oil consumption after 150 thousand kilometers. The reason is oil-removing caps. The variator is very reliable and easily rolls out for 200 thousand kilometers. In the all-wheel drive system, you need to monitor the transfer case's friction. In suspension, the weak link is the silent blocks of the front levers. Other elements usually do not require attention before 170 thousand. Also a distinctive feature of Subaru (as well as all Asian models) is a thin paint coating. Chips on the hood appear quickly.
Skoda Yeti on the secondary market: 3 advantages, 4 shortcomings and 3 chronic diseases
The non-standard appearance of Yeti often scares off buyers. Although this is a very successful and pleasant crossover in many ways. For 900 thousand, you can find a car from 2014-2016. I recommend looking closely at one of the two options. If all-wheel drive is not a panacea, then take a car with a 1.6-liter ea211 series air conditioner and a six-speed automatic. Both the engine and the box have proven to be exceptionally reliable.
If you want more dynamics and all the driving wheels, then your choice is the 152-horsepower Yeti with all-wheel drive and a six-speed DSG robot. The common opinion that any TSI turbo engine is a one-off, does not exactly apply to this unit. the 1.8-liter engine of the second generation (ea888 series) was much more reliable than its predecessor, the BZB. The same applies to the robot, which by this time had already got rid of its childhood illnesses with the early failure of the mechatronic unit.
And if you want a premium? Then it is better to choose a Volvo XC90. For 900 thousand rubles, you can count on a ten-or nine-year-old copy. Despite the complexity and variety of options, the Swedish crossover turned out to be very reliable. The best option to choose is five --- cylinder petrol modifications. Regardless of the degree of forcing, this unit is durable and will last a long time with normal and timely maintenance. It is better to diagnose the instance you like in a service that has a proprietary VIDA system. Although the HS90 is unpopular with hijackers, they often steal the front optics and the center-to-center clutch control unit. Both are expensive, and" twists " from the car easily. So you need to take care of additional fasteners for the headlights and protection for the unit.
This is the reality --- even with the amount under a million, you can not go on a rampage. If you still want a new car, then only our Vesta. And if you are ready to buy a car with mileage, then a very good option will be the Subaru XV-a well-balanced SUV from all points of view with good reliability. Just keep in mind that it will be more difficult to sell this car --- all because of the same unpopularity in our market.
