Test UAZ Patriot Sport: Encouraging Feedback From.

Uazovskaya modification of the popular Russian sport utility vehicle appeared in our market this year and, of course, immediately attracted the attention of fans of the automotive brand. There are several reasons, and not the last one #8211; a smaller, compared with the usual patriotovskoy model, price, and individual design features. So we wanted to get to know the results, which showed one of the tests UAZ Patriot Sport.

And as it turned out, reviews of UAZ Patriot Sport has been overwhelmingly positive.

Test UAZ Patriot Sport: Reviews and Specifications As we know, Russia has two misfortunes #8211; fools and roads. What to do with the first, alas, still have not really come up with. But out how to do without a developed highway network, some of which are already on paper and even built, yet found our forefathers. Established in 1941, Ulyanovsk defense plant in 1954 was converted into a dedicated #8211; to produce light-duty off-road vehicles.

The first model was the legendary GAZ-69, production of which was transferred from the Nizhni Novgorod, and later #8211; developed mainly in the proper size.

As SUV UAZ Patriot certainly good, but his indiscreet dimensions often are not claimed. Overseas experience tells us #8211; need a #8220;lite#8221; in all respects, including price, release. So a new, shortened version of Sport #8211; that#8217;s it! And when she finally appeared this year on the market, it immediately attracted the attention of buyers.

His vpechtaleniyami about this machine is divided AutoWorld Editor Andrew Kochetov, who conducted the test UAZ Patriot Sport. Expert opinion about this car, there were more than positive.

Let#8217;s start with the technical characteristics of UAZ Patriot Sport. From the initial model car differs shorter (260 mm) base, smaller (by 327 mm) long body and a more modest (2000 instead of 2050 kg with the motor) weight. Turning circle 13.10 m was reduced from to 11.76, and improved throughput due to a better geometry #8211; at the same ground clearance (210mm) radius of the cross with a 2328 mm 1766 mm fell before.

In this #8220;trimming#8221; the usual Patriot pros more than cons. Loss of interior volume and passenger capacity are obvious. And yet, the new product #8211; a full five-seat off-road touring with a large, 750-liter trunk. But the car was not so cumbersome.

Due to the shortened rear side windows and rear door openings reduced, Sport looks far less ponderous than the #8220;grown-up Patriot.

Something diminished, but to add something #8230;

Test UAZ Patriot Sport: Reviews and salon professionals #8230; Sport version has lost not only millimeters and kilograms, but the price tag in U.S. Dollars #8211; from 70 000 to 92 000 (depending on version). At what expense? Reduced material consumption and reduced the list of available options.

It does not have ABS, Rellingen roof hatch, hinged additional thresholds, the second heater, a variant velvet and leather upholstery, folding benches in the trunk, and additional adjustment driver#8217;s seat (height, tilt and lumbar support cushions).

We should also talk about the cabin car. In the Sport seats are new. Besides that they have become easier, there is another function #8211; the transformation of a sleeper (see photo).

Controls are logically light #8211; to the left of the steering wheel. But the joystick mirror and window openers will have to get used to #8211; they have settled down in the box between the front seats. Devices in all versions of Patriot, including the Sport, the same.

For ease of reading and completeness of the information to present a claim difficult.

Thus, the major internal and external content (except where noted exceptions), as well as proprietary designations original equipment UAZ Patriot Sport has not changed. True, the version with a diesel engine in the sport version is not provided. The choice of engines is reduced to just two options for forcing all of the same 2.7-liter gasoline engine ZMZ409.

To complete Classic (420 000 rubles.) And Comfort (470 000 rubles.) Establish a 112-strong version, and the Limited (505 000 rubles). #8211; 128 hp By the way, if you make chip-tuning of these power units, their capacity can be increased by 15-20%.

As regards the construction of transmission and chassis, it left unchanged the following components: frame, uncut axles (on springs, rear #8211; on the springs), the steering screw-nut, constant back and rigidly connected front-wheel drive, 5-speed manual gearbox and transfer case with a decreasing series.

Test UAZ Patriot Sport: expert reviews that deserve!

Test UAZ Patriot Sport: feedback from off-road and on #8230; What version of the Sport is markedly different from the large Patriot, so it senses the wheel. The impression that the car was better not 50, and 250 kg at all! Although Sport (128 hp) from zero to 100 km / h only 1s faster in the amount of markedly increased maneuverability, this is enough to make more confident, without too much stress for the driver to stay and rebuild in an urban stream.

But on the suburban route is practically no difference. Although the maximum speed in Sport at 5 km / h above, practical sense in this.

Already at 90-100 km / h and the long and short versions of roughly the same start to #8220;look for#8221; the road and need constant adjustment of the course, roll call and reduce speed when driving in the fast-sloping curves. A steering precision and in fact, and another case, a lot to be desired. Still, Sport a little faster and sharper reaction to the helm #8211; so a big difference in the length of the wheelbase still affected.

As shown by test runs UAZ Patriot Sport, off-road model with the main differences are due to a different geometry. Theoretically Sport diagonal display comes a little earlier, but equally large stock moves suspension and lowers the number of transmissions on both cars provides them with almost equal permeability uncommon.

By the way, the difference in the nuances of the terrain of #8220;short#8221; and #8220;long#8221; versions of the Patriot will be able to catch only experienced extremals. Moves the suspension and ride height on both machines are identical, but because of the lower base of UAZ Patriot Sport posted a bit earlier. But the geometric cross (corner ramps) in the Ulyanovsk #8220;sports car#8221; is best.

Test UAZ Patriot Sport: Reviews of experts and views of the panel #8230; It would not change very much, but the car is very different. He lost his clumsiness and heaviness of Patriot, retaining the basic #8220;bastions#8221; of comfort, the flagship brand has already won. But still the trump card version Sport #8211; an adequate price.

That it can play a decisive role in winning popularity in the market.

Opinion of many experts, including experts of information-analytical portal AvtoParad is that the emergence of another model in the series of the classic SUV UAZ, of course, correct tactical move. Now the price gap and the gap between the comfort and Hunter Patriot firmly clamped.

Revision Sport #8211; this is probably one compromise that will finally ready to meet that part of the consumer audience, which embarrassed the huge size and price of Patriot and asceticism not suit Hunter.

In general, the automaker has successfully made his bet. Now it#8217;s consumers Ulyanovsk sport SUVs. We believe that over time, UAZ Patriot Sport and the motorists will receive a massive amount of good words, good interest in the car right now, according to representatives of dealers is large enough.
