Top 10 cheapest cars in Russia for 2019


Budget car buyers often have to choose between a used and a new car. Yielding to equipment or even a class, the new car is under official warranty, does not require expensive repairs a month after purchase, and it is more pleasant to have a new thing than a used one.

In recent years, foreign car manufacturers have been moving the assembly to Russia, adapting models to our conditions, for example, increasing ground clearance, installing “winter packages” that facilitate operation in severe frosts and so on.

To summarize, a new foreign car should be chosen instead of a used one for the following reasons:

  • Zero mileage, perfect condition, no risk of buying a stolen, beaten and otherwise problematic car,
  • Warranty from an authorized dealer
  • frequent adaptation from the manufacturer to our road and weather conditions,
  • an opportunity to buy the necessary complete set and color, but not a choice between a pair of options.

9. Lada Granta (from 383 000 rubles)

The working title of the AvtoVAZ project was simple and frank: “Low cost". Designers, engineers and marketers have made every effort to justify this motto.

Despite the quite modern level of comfort, the price Lada granta at the time of the start of sales, it was only slightly higher than the cost of the "classic", outdated by a quarter century.

The modern interior design, the obligatory equipping of cars even in the cheapest configuration with airbags, the originally provided mounts for child seats and the low toxicity of the exhaust are quite European standards for a “people's car”.

Designed to modern standards, the body provides good passive safety.

Unfortunately, the reasonableness of the design is leveled by not too high quality workmanship.

Owners of cars worth 383 thousand rubles often complain about a noisy interior, extraneous squeaks, vibrations and even falling off interior details.

8. Geely HQ SRV (from 380 000 rubles)

A simple and unpretentious little car is characterized by decent reliability and sufficient comfort. If you look for flaws, you can only note the difficulties with the search for spare parts.

Is it possible to purchase a new car on the domestic market with a very limited amount? The answer is yes, and the choice of cheap cars is scarce. We present to your attention the rating of the most budget models and modifications.

The cheapest cars in Russia are the hope and joy of a huge number of owners who are ready to prefer an inexpensive, but new used car, even if the class is higher. No matter how attractive the prices for used vehicles with easy maintenance are, the choice is often made in favor of a fresh car.

The first line in the ranking of the cheapest is Datsun on-DO, whose exterior hardly hides its origin. In fact, the car, manufactured at AvtoVAZ under the banner of the revived Japanese brand, is a converted Lada Granta.

The engine in the base version is a 87-horsepower 1.6 liter with a five-speed manual gearbox. It is no exaggeration to say that in the initial Datsun there is practically nothing, except for such necessary equipment as ABS, a driver's airbag. But the price is corresponding - only 394 thousand rubles.

Prices for a related brainchild of the Togliatti brand, that is, Lada Granta, start at 414.9 thousand rubles. The basic configuration of the sedan still includes the same 1.6-liter eight-valve engine with 87 hp, aggregated with a five-speed manual gearbox.

The initial version, as expected, does not indulge in equipment and includes such equipment as a driver’s airbag, ISOFIX child seat mounts, childproof rear doors, immobilizer, daytime running lights and, of course, ABS with EBD and BAS.

Then follows the Lada Granta with a liftback body, the initial version of which will cost 431.9 thousand rubles.

Lada Granta liftback

The power unit is the same as the four-door version, but the boot volume is less, although you expect a different result from a practical liftback. In fact, 440-760 liters versus 520-815 liters.

Similarly, there is the Granta hatchback, which before the update, the audience knew under the name Kalina.

Lada Granta hatchback

Last year, the “berry” line was updated and renamed.

The most expensive in the Lada Granta palette is a station wagon, which was part of the Kalina family until last year's restyling - this modification is estimated at a minimum of 441.9 thousand rubles.

Lada Granta station wagon

The initial power unit is the same as that of other members of the family - a bunch of a 1.6-liter eight-valve and a five-speed manual gearbox.

The five-door Datsun mi-DO, created on the Lada Kalina platform, starts from 465 thousand rubles and is ready to argue a higher price tag than Granta's list of basic equipment.

The five-door flaunts with bumpers to match the body color, but it is much more important to have not only the driver’s airbag, but also the passenger airbag, on-board computer, electric adjustment and heating of the side mirrors, front electric windows, electric power steering, steering column adjustment in height, and heated front seats. The engine, of course, is repeatedly mentioned above 87-horsepower.

The need for cheap SUVs, which has long existed in Russia, AvtoVAZ has long and successfully satisfied the legendary Niva, now sold under the name Lada 4x4.

This is an excellent Spartan all-terrain vehicle, the initial cost of which is 488.9 thousand rubles. The asset is a 1.7-liter engine with 83 hp. a five-speed manual gearbox and permanent all-wheel drive with a reduction gear. The basic equipment, as they say, for the countryside - there is a power steering, power windows, ABS, light tinted windows. By the way, the base Lada 4x4 with a five-door body is noticeably more expensive - prices start at 557.9 thousand rubles.

A step from the half-millionth psychological mark for some buyers is the Lada XRAY, which hides the Renault B0 platform under the body in the AvtoVAZ signature style.

Expensive? But already in the basic version, the hatchback has a sixteen-valve 1.6-liter engine with a five-speed manual gearbox and a very good level of equipment. Here, frontal airbags, immobilizer, LED daytime running lights, directional stability system and traction control, as well as an assistant start uphill. There are also front power windows and an on-board computer.

The Russian range of Renault poses a dilemma for the audience - for the identical 554 thousand rubles, both the Logan base sedan and its five-door version Sandero with a 1.6-liter engine with 82 hp are offered. and a five-speed manual gearbox.

7. Renault Logan (from 349 000 rubles)

The car was originally designed as an inexpensive car for poor countries with poor roads.

Moreover, the savings began even at the development stage - due to the fact that instead of building prototypes, computer calculation and simulation methods were widely used. This alone saved almost 20 million euros.

Cheaper production was also facilitated by the widespread use of components and assemblies that were already well developed and used in other brands of Renault cars.

Engines, gearbox, steering, suspension - all these units have already been massively used on other mass-produced machines. All this allowed to omit the final cost. Renault Logan up to 349 thousand rubles (in Russia).

Significant clearance provides a good cross. Alas, the simplified body structure does not provide adequate passive safety.

Rating of the cheapest new cars in Russia

Choosing a new car with a limited budget is not so easy, you need to approach the choice with all responsibility, since it is most likely acquired for at least 3-5 years, and often on credit. Therefore, it should not be as beautiful and comfortable as reliable and inexpensive to maintain.

In our ranking, we will consider models from the following manufacturers:

6. Ravon R2 (from 335 000 rubles)

«Small, yes udalenky»Fully applies to baby hatchback Ravon r2. A car with a full curb weight of less than a ton is equipped with a 85 horsepower engine, which is quite powerful for a flea.

At the request of the consumer, the salon can be equipped with all accessories, familiar owners of significantly more expensive brands.

The low final cost of the car was initially laid when deciding on production. The fact is that the Ravon brand is produced in Uzbekistan.

Production was designed primarily for the domestic market, and export prospects were rather a pleasant addition for company managers.

In order to reduce the cost, the ready-made developments of the General Motors and Daewoo concern were used to the maximum extent possible, which made it possible to achieve a selling price of the car of 335 thousand rubles.

Perhaps the only drawback noted by the drivers is the rather low "landing" of the car - the clearance is only 140 mm.

Lada Granta - the cheapest model

The first in our rating of the most inexpensive cars is the domestic Lada Grant, it is the cheapest in Russia today. In 2019, Granta experienced the first serious restyling as a result of which the appearance, equipment, and new options were updated. The car began to look quite modern, although the interior remained extremely budget.

A serious advantage can be called a large selection of body types, namely:

Grant is equipped with two gasoline engine options: 87, 106 hp. The gearbox is available mechanical or robotic. With the reliability of the technical part of the problems, owners do not have up to two hundred thousand kilometers. What can not be said about the paintwork, chips appear quickly enough, if they are not processed on time, then after a while rust will appear in their place.

Price: from 405 000 rub.

  • High ground clearance
  • Reliability of the technical part,
  • Low cost
  • Low cost service
  • A wide selection of bodies and trim levels.
  • Weak LCP
  • Low comfort
  • Poor insulation.

5. Daewoo Matiz (from 314 000 rubles)

The appearance of this urban subcompact will leave few indifferent. And no wonder, because the charming face was painted by Italian designers.

A smart South Korean car is produced under licenses in almost a dozen countries.

Daewoo matiz is one of the prime examples of cars that “inside more than outside».

A simple but very neat interior provides ample comfort. The economical three-cylinder engine does not expose the owner’s wallet to excessive spending on fuel.

If anything can be reproached to the baby, it is only that a long trip in it can be tiring. But the "urban motor-carriage" at the price of only 314 thousand rubles was not created for tourism.

Criterias of choice

Choosing the cheapest new car for the price is not so difficult. You need to focus on certain parameters:

  1. type of car (subcompact, crossover, SUV),
  2. body type (sedan, hatchback, station wagon, liftback),
  3. security systems
  4. additional options.

The budget model can be found in any category, but first of all, you should focus on personal preferences.

Lada Granta (from 430 000 rub.)

Datsun-on-Do (from 460 000 rub.)

The car is represented by Datsun and Nissan. Appearance reminds Lada Kalina. On the body are elongated headlights, a wide grille. The moldings are painted in body color.

A solid interior with expensive fabrics and plastic has nothing more. The panel is quite informative.

Appearance resembles a full crossover. Massive plastic body kits protect the car from damage. Inside the cabin, the user receives high-quality upholstery in fabric seats, a convenient steering wheel shape. Lateral support for driver and passenger seats provides comfort. The central part of the rear seat is easily transformed into a wide armrest.

Ravon R 2 (from 490000 rub.)

The car is based on the famous Daewoo Matiz and is equally inexpensive. In the basic configuration, the model is equipped with a gun, ABS, electric power steering. A typical small car, which weighs only 950 kg, meets the requirements of Euro-5.

Engine capacity - 1.25 liters with a developed power of up to 85 liters. from. A four-speed automatic gearbox is installed, but there is a model (Ravon Matiz) on which the mechanics are installed. The biggest plus is fuel consumption - from 5 liters on the highway to 8 liters in the city. A speed of 100 km / h is achieved in 12 seconds. The suspension is soft, due to which the smooth movement of the car is achieved.

Among the minuses are not enough spacious interior. In addition, the car is considered expensive to maintain.

Kia Picanto (from 530000rub.)

The compact European-class hatchback, the Kia Picanto, is enduringly popular. A modern dynamic appearance with massive air intakes and large headlights gives the foreign car a slightly aggressive look.

Skoda Rapid (from 604 000 rub.)

The classic Czech liftback with improved aerodynamic properties invariably falls into the rating of the cheapest, but high-quality cars. Strict body lines give the car a stylish look.

3 Ravon R2

Not so long ago, the Ravon R2 appeared on the Russian market, but has already managed to gain fame as the most budget auto with automatic transmission. The Uzbek subcompact is a licensed copy of the Chevrolet Spark. Appearance of the car is made in a modern style. Perhaps most of the merit in this original version. At the same time, a budget car does not look cheap, it will quite confidently feel in a stormy street stream.

Specifications can surprise even experienced motorists. The manufacturer does not offer much choice. The complete set has one engine (1.2 l) with a capacity of 85 l. from.

Chevrolet Spark (from 650,000 rubles.)

The new Chevrolet Spark models have a fairly powerful 1.4 liter engine that delivers nearly 100 hp. At the choice of buyers are offered cars with mechanics or a CVT, both options are five-speed.

Spark advantage is low fuel consumption - 6 liters per 100 km. The refreshed car exterior has become more prominent.

Skeptics note such disadvantages as poor noise insulation, fogging of windows in rainy weather, and interruptions in the operation of rear window heating.

1 KIA Picanto

Despite the small size, and, in general, a reasonable price, the South Korean small car has a whole range of advantages that distinguish it from its closest competitors. In terms of its safety parameters, she managed to leave behind even the more expensive FIAT 500 car model. In addition to traditional airbags (the base package also contains side AirBags), there is an AEB collision avoidance system and tire pressure monitoring.

In Russia, for such a price you can find not so many cars, especially among unpretentious small cars. In addition, in terms of comfort and safety, the KIA Picanto is highly regarded in the market, which undoubtedly affects its popularity.For the same reason, this model fully deserves the first place awarded to it in our rating in the subcompact category.

Chery Tiggo 2 (from 790 000 rub.)

Compact SUV attracts with its appearance, which is not inferior to full-size cars. Aggressive profile part with a reinforced bumper like young motorists.

High ground clearance (16-18 cm) allows you to confidently overcome bumps on the road. The contrasting interior design is minimalist.

The car is equipped with a 1.5 liter gasoline engine and is capable of developing a capacity of 106 liters. from. Of course, this is not much, but the car consumes little fuel: only about 6 liters per 100 km. Cherry is unpretentious and can consume 92nd gasoline.

Two versions are available - with a five-speed manual and a four-speed automatic.

UAZ Patriot (from 850,000 rubles.)

The price for the UAZ Patriot can only conditionally be called low. However, an all-wheel drive car, as adapted to our roads as possible, is worth it. Thanks to the high clearance (21 cm), he confidently overcomes a deep track and high rises. Comfortable superior interior is not inferior to foreign counterparts.

The engine with a volume of 2.7 liters is capable of developing a capacity of 150 liters. from. The car has 4 main drive options. Available with gasoline or diesel engine.

4 Renault Logan

For many years of operation on the roads of Russia, the Renault Logan car has proved to be an unpretentious and reliable transport unit, which has become a real helper and friend for many Russians. The components in the car are distinguished by their endurance, and if they are replaced, the owner is not at all afraid of the cost of spare parts. Despite the fact that their price does not belong to the cheap segment, due to the increased resource of components, the total operational cost is one of the most affordable.

Renault Logan is also appreciated for its unusually spacious interior - its use is not limited only to the transportation of passengers. It is enough to assemble the back seat to significantly increase the cargo compartment - there is no partition between the luggage compartment and the backs of the rear sofa. This allows you to place oversized items with a length of up to 168 cm. In this case, the luggage compartment lid is opened in such a way as to simplify the owner's access to the internal space as much as possible.


In conclusion, it can be noted that the market has a wide selection of inexpensive models, both domestic and foreign brands. New cars, unlike used ones, can be taken based on the following considerations:

  • Very good condition,
  • zero mileage
  • warranty service,
  • a wide selection of models, configuration, color schemes.

Official dealers, as a rule, sell new cars adapted to the conditions of our country. Therefore, you can safely take a foreign car without worrying about its behavior on our roads.

Ravon Nexia R3 - a budget foreign car

This is the first cheap foreign car in our rating. Despite the fact that Ravon P3 is being assembled in Uzbekistan, it is based on a Korean-designed car - the Chevrolet Aveo T250, which has been sold in Russia for many years and enjoyed great popularity due to its simplicity and reliability.

The main difference from its predecessor is the power unit, here it is represented by the only version of the 107 hp gasoline engine. Customers can choose from a 5-speed “mechanics” or a 6-speed “automatic”. It is the automatic gearbox that makes this car so attractive; it simply will not work to find another full-fledged sedan with such a transmission for this money.

Many complaints are caused by the low reliability of mechanical components and frequent failures of electrical equipment. However, the low price still attracts buyers.

Renault Logan - inexpensive but reliable

The car not only looks modern at the level of other budget cars, but also boasts a large list of options and a good level of safety, which was obtained thanks to various systems and a strong body.

How can I save?

If you buy one of the cheapest cars, then you probably want to save money, so it’s worth everything to think carefully and not to make a hasty conclusion. Here are some tips to help you:

  • Buy only from authorized dealers. Find out the addresses of official car dealerships and buy a future car exclusively there. Believe me, you still will not find cheaper prices, but gray dealers can deceive you.
  • Carefully study the configuration. Before buying, go to the official website of the manufacturer, look at the prices of all the trim levels and examine what is included in them. Some unscrupulous dealers have ways to offer factory equipment for a fee, which would be a clear violation.
  • Select the version you need in advance. Sellers will most likely offer you those cars that are in stock or have long been in stock, and this may be the most complete configuration. And if you do not need some options, then it is better to place an order for the desired version so as not to overpay.
  • Do not buy additional equipment in the cabin. In any case, you will need equipment such as mats, alarm, mud flaps, a DVR, winter tires, but it’s better not to buy them at a car dealership, but in specialized stores and services, where they can be provided 2 times cheaper.

What good are cheap foreign cars

But along with the advantages, they also have disadvantages. First of all, it is a short service life. It can be designated as before the first shot. Repair after an accident can fly into a serious penny, which may exceed the final cost of the car. Or, after several years, it depreciates to an indecent level, making the sale absolutely unprofitable. In this case, it is better to immediately cut into scrap metal. Although, perhaps, there will definitely not be any good from such recyclables.
