The Russian segment of "SUV" has experienced a small revolution – the former leader, Toyota RAV4, is losing ground for the advent of a new generation, and the palm has been picked up by the Kia sport. But even more surprised Nissan Qashqai, suddenly jumps after a recent update. We took them for comparison.
There is no doubt that our compatriots fell in love with the design – after the novelty, Kaya's spaghetti became even more spectacular with the new grille and front bumper, cut with a chrome-plated "sword". A strip of rear lights even more resembles Porsche Cayenne. Is it because in Kia's caves he is more poisonous than Nisan?
This is unlikely due to the fact that Qashqai is 9 cm shorter than the athlete – visually it does not seem smaller, only the low hood catches the eye.And Nissan after the upgrade is clearly more beautiful – new optics with a spectacular "sweet" diode and The grille renewed the "interior".
The salons of the two Crusaders have hardly changed-both Lekia and Nissan now have new steering wheels, and the Nissan is uncomfortable because of the twisted language at the bottom. It looks good, but your hand regularly "misses" if you rotate it with interception – and this should be done more often than Vetch, where the wheel makes fewer turns from stop to stop.
Nissan after the update became beautiful inside, and the soft pad appeared above the glove compartment. But Kia is more conveniently organized, especially in the central tunnel.
The main innovation in the living room in Nissan is the multimedia complex "Yandex." Auto-like ones that put cars and carsharing. The navigator has been "wired" into it and there is an internet connection, therefore, the Yandex service works. "I liked the track – you like, and the system starts to offer similar music.But it has been loaded for quite a while, and Qashqai is also surprised by the catastrophic low resolution of the camera at the rear sight – in 2019 even Lada has a better picture …
Kia in the Lux package does not offer navigation, and the screen here is much smaller than in Nissan, but there is support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. In addition, Sportage is more convenient in terms of gadgets and small things – opposite 2 outlets for 12 volts, niches and coasters are successfully grouped. And the seat buttons and glosses are located in a more logical place – they are scattered right around the cabin of the "squishy", and the back sofa is activated with a button on the central tunnel.
Dynamics is not inspiring
The most powerful engine offered in Russia for "Kashkai" is 144 horsepower 2.0, so we also took the KIA with a two-liter engine. Moreover, it is usually the most popular version of the Crossover Sportage – 2.0, 150 automatic forces. Although the prefix name of the model here is completely unnecessary …
Kaya is lazy at first, and then, as if remembering himself, he quickly throws the speed to the city of 80 miles per hour and falls asleep again, and on the runway – and with all the longing – after centuries, it's very slowly accelerating the 180-mile-long passport under the roar of the engine and the noise of the air cut . In addition, on 17 inch wheels, Sportage becomes sensitive to the wind side due to its high tire profile.
Liquor has a wheelbase, so it is not surprising that there is more space for the rear passengers. In addition, the back of the sofa is adjustable at an angle. The roof of the SportsGate is also higher. And the front seats are better with Nissan – on a long way behind Kia's wheel, your back is getting tired
There is another route nuance – if you put the cruise control at 150 km / h (this can be done with 130 allowed on some roads and not wait for fines), the machine often jumps into fifth gear, as the engine just does not pull sixth! Thus – increased fuel consumption, up to 12 l / 100 km.Therefore, it is better to immediately switch to manual mode – then the highest level will not go anywhere, although will lose speed if you go uphill.
Nissan with the variable of this problem is deprived, although you can not call it a good road car – its minuses are the same: weak engine, do not like for ruts and average level of noise insulation. But in the town of Kashkai it is good – not laziness, quick reactions to the gas pedal, linear impulse. If only the wheel was "sharper" … However, the impressions turned out to be misleading – Qashqai on the passport should go faster than Kia (10.5 seconds compared to 11.6) and he feels more like an animal machine, but the Racelogic device can not be fooled.
The instruments of the two crossovers are simple and informative, at night scales are highlighted in white
Run, do some beginner. Kaya almost entered the passport function, and Nissan was slower, almost 12 seconds to a hundred. Although further accelerates further shocking 130 mph – long 19-20 seconds for both cars Very slowly! At the same time, crossovers are not economically different – the combined fuel consumption in circulation was about 10 l / 100 km. But both engines can be "fed" with gasoline AI-92.
Under the hood of the Nissan, the engine asks more powerfully – it is controlled no more than ordinary cars and hatchbacks: the 18 inch Michelin Primacy 3 tires allow you to "roll" into turns at very good speeds, and there are practically no rolls. Kaya also savors the habits of "traveling" but even here it feels more lazy. In addition, due to lack of visibility, sports are less convenient for city traffic and courtyards.
The larger trunk is vomit (491 l compared to 431), it is deeper, it has the right shape of the opening and the load height is less. But Nissan offers more vertical space than floor to shelf, and at the end of the cell there are 2 niches with straps. Two crossovers are equipped with dokatka.
The smoothness of these versions is better than the upper configuration with low tires. The sportaz on the "17-shkah" less suffer from minor deviations, and even Kaya was unexpectedly resistant to large teachers. After the upgrade, Kashkai received an upgraded suspension and began to act more cautiously with the driver and passenger. But both crossovers are not really comfortable – they still do not like sharp joints, well-hatched holes, and at city speeds they return to road profile too many details. You can ride, but shaking can not be avoided.
So Qashqai or Sportage?
Both crossovers are close to each other in terms of dynamics, comfort and equipment. While the Yandex QE with advanced multimedia, 18-inch wheels and Nissan LEDs will cost more – 1,778,000 rubles against 1,744,900 for Kia. But, if we compare the basic options with each wheel and two liter engines, prices for Nissan start at 1.665 million rubles – as many as 10 complete kits are offered for "Kashkai".
Kia does not require additional payment for metallic paint, but for Nissan you will need to add 17,000 rubles
The Sportage 2.0 4WD is only 4 versions, including the limited edition of the Europa League (The Kia has long supported the UEFA.) The base is well equipped with a Sportage Comfort for 1 694 900 rubles.Compared with the same Nissan – it's just a whole set of SE for 1 665 000 rubles.Then for the difference in price is minimal.
Prices for Nissan Qashqai start at 1.293 million rubles for a front wheel drive with crossover engine 115 horsepower of 1.2 liters (with turbo). Payment for variable – 61 thousand rubles. With a liter of two liters (144 kW) – this is 1.415 million rubles.There is 1.6 turbo diesel (130 kW), available only with CVT and front wheel. Qashqai with this engine costs from 1 604 000 rubles.
Kia Sportage is at least 2 liters and 150 horses and in this version is cheaper – 1,389,900 rubles with a front wheel drive mechanics. Sports with a gun starts with 1,549,900 rubles, and there is also a 2.4 engine (188 hp) and 185 turbo diesel power 2.2. But such crossovers have been at least 1 854 900 and 2 304 900 rubles
Therefore, you can choose by character design – Nissan is more lively than the youth, there is "Yandex." Auto, but it has no versions with powerful engines. Kia offers a comfortable and spacious back sofa and is more resistant to suspension on bad roads. And, if the dynamics with a two-liter engine is not enough, then you can pay 110,000 for the Sportage 2.4 (188 hp) and eight-speed automatic.
