XRAY Cross, Creta and Kaptur: Kuz’kina’s mother against foreign crossovers

Even a quick glance at the price lists is enough to understand: if Lada is indeed their competitor, then in Tolyatti they are clearly dumping. After all, the price for the most sophisticated XRAY Cross is lower than for the basic monoprivodnye versions of Crete and Kaptur!

Yes, the car has received new features, but soon they will become familiar and in the traffic flow you can’t really figure out – which modification is more recent, and which is dorestayling. The updated Elantra is unlikely to risk getting lost among previous versions. So what, and the exterior of this sedan really changed dramatically: the headlights became triangular and now literally wedged into the radiator grille, the trapezoid grille itself has more acute angles, a triangular block with “fog lights” and “turn signals” appeared on the sides, and the front bumper came out downright screaming.
