This week all the attention was focused on the «Skoda». And not without reason, because the company introduced new generation of its most popular model is Skoda Octavia. Citroen managed to call Ukrainian the prices for a novelty in the segment of budget sedans — C-Elysse. In the meantime we found out in the test drive, why the once popular model of Renault Megane lost its magic on the Ukrainian market?
The week began with a test drive of Renault Megane hatchback. Popular truth, in the past generation, the model has become increasingly rare to see on our roads. The reason is simple — 99 percent of car buyers last generation chose the sedan, from which the French decided to withdraw. The hatchback, in particular a version with a diesel engine, did not disappoint us. The car honestly work out your money. But the model’s appearance has discouraged their inexpressive, that it would seem unusual French machines.
But the Megane is too early to write off. As soon as we have published a test drive, came the news that in the second half of next year the French will update the model. And here’s what it can become (see photo) — the magazine L’automobile suggests that the hatchback will borrow the style of the new Clio. There is every reason to believe, as similar changes have already occurred with the facelifted Renault Fluence.
In the segment of budget sedans in the Ukrainian market in the near future will be a bit crowded, but you will only win. Citroen called the price of C-Elysse — from 105 thousand hryvnias. Though the French tried to reduce the cost of the model that allow reasonable limits, they should pay tribute outside the machine, as is often the case with «public sector» has not turned out a sort of skate-gorbunka. And Spanish the Assembly must become a serious argument in the competition with already obrovskaya we have competitors — «Accent», Rio and Polo sedan.

Whether the bone smelled, or wanted something else.

The market is gradually increasing the number of companies offering to buy them not only new but also used cars. From the 10th of December they were joined by Renault, which offers not only the purchase of used cars of its brand, but other manufacturers.

Judging by the comments to the news, or something to do with the price or the design. «Versatile» trunk of a sedan in 563 liters, like, did not cause complaints. Well, at least that is what the model is made correctly.
