The Korean public-sector employee Hyundai Solaris of the first generation, produced in Russia, for 6 years of its presence on the market became not only a bestseller (more than 660,000 copies were sold), but also a real national car that squeezed AvtoVAZ products. Following the results of the last year 2016, Hyundai Solaris is the leader of the Russian market: 90380 motorists have chosen this model. So Solaris 2 is one of the most anticipated new products of 2017 in Russia.

We told how the new Solaris will look like in the Chinese version of the compact budget Hyundai Verna model, but the Chinese and Russian versions of the sedan differ from each other. Let the differences and not significant, but they are the case. In our opinion Verna looks more aggressive and solid from the front than Solaris, due to strict headlights and rectangular fog lamps, but in the profile and behind the cars are identical.

After experiencing a succession of generations, Solaris remained 100% recognizable, but, of course, it acquired a more modern and respectable appearance, and also grew slightly in size, adding a length and width of 30 mm.

  • The external dimensions of the body of the sedan Hyundai Solaris 2 2018-2019 year are 4,405 mm in length, 1729 mm in width, 1460 mm in height, with 2,600 mm of wheelbase.

When creating the new Hyundai Solaris 2, Hyundai specialists tried to take into account and correct all the shortcomings of the predecessor (pre-series versions of the new Solaris rolled over domestic roads more than 1 million kilometers). Thus, the novelty has got a stiffer and hard body (the share of high-strength steels in the body’s power frame reaches 52%), a completely new rear suspension (the beam from the Hyundai Elantra 6 ) with other attachment points for chassis and shock absorbers, a wider track of the front and rear wheels , Offered as standard equipment for all versions of the new electric power steering.

The 2nd generation generation saloon Hyundai Solaris 2018-2019 is completely new, starting from a different design of the front panel and turned to the driver’s side at 6 degrees of the center console, ending with door cards and a large reserve of space in the second row. Thus, there is a new instrument panel and steering wheel, air conditioning or climate control unit, a modern multimedia system with a 7-inch color screen and wide armrests.



New Hyundai Solaris 2018-2019 configuration

In the basic configuration Active (engine 1.4, 6 manual gear), the equipment is rather sparse: steel wheels, body-color door handles and mirror housings, power windows only on the front doors, audio preparation, front airbags, sensors for monitoring tire pressure, system Stabilization, height adjustment of the driver’s seat and steering column, as well as the mandatory ERA-GLONASS system.

The following configuration Active Plus allows you to choose between 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter engines, as well as 6 manual gearboxes or 6 automatic transmissions. To equip the basic equipment, heated front seats are added, rear-view mirrors with electric drive and heating, air conditioning, a simple audio system with steering buttons on the steering wheel (radio, USB, AUX).

The Comfort package extends the set of equipment due to the presence of rear electric windows with a button illumination, adjustable both in height and in the direction of the steering column, Bluetooth, Supervision dashboard and leather rim trim.

At the top of the top-end Elegance package, pleasing the maximum set of additional chips: alloy wheels, disc brakes of the rear wheels, chrome trim decorative elements, underlining the window line and falshradiator grille, parking sensors, light sensor, advanced multimedia system with 7-inch touch screen (Apple CarPlay And Android, a navigator with tips on the presence of traffic jams on the roads), climate control, an armrest between the front seats with longitudinal adjustment.

But that’s not all. For the most demanding motorists choosing the new Hyundai Solaris 2, in the richest versions of Comfort and Elegance additional packages are offered: Advanced, Winter, Safety, Prestige and Style.
The Advanced package is offered in the appendage to the Comfort kit and includes climate control, a front-row armrest and parking sensors.

The Safety package improves the standard set of safety systems, through the use of side airbags for the driver and front passenger, side blinds, light-alloy wheels and rear disc brakes.

The Prestige package offered for the Elegance package is the mass of chips that are responsible for comfort: a keyless entry system with a start / stop button for the engine, a boot lid with automatic opening function, door handles with chrome trim, heated second-row seats and the presence of a rear-view camera With dynamic markup.
Style set with its equipment provides a more stylish appearance of the budget model: 16-inch light alloy wheels with original design, rear marker lights with LED fill and integrated into the rear-view mirror housing LED turn signal repeaters.

The increase in the size of the wheelbase and the overall overall length of the body of the new Solaris by 30 mm compared to its predecessor allowed not only to add a much needed legroom for the rear passengers, but also to increase the useful volume of the trunk by 10 liters to 480 liters. The back of the rear row in all new models of the novelty folds and increases the cargo capacity of the luggage compartment.

Technical specifications of Hyundai Solaris 2 2018-2019

At the heart of the new Hyundai Solaris 2 is the upgraded and improved platform of the first-generation model. The front suspension with McPherson struts is independent, the rear suspension is semi-independent with a torsion beam from the 6th generation of the Hyundai Elantra (also used on the Hyundai Creta crossover).
Under the hood of the Korean budget worker for the Russian market are two familiar gasoline four-cylinder atmospheric engines, capable of combining with 6 MKPP and 6 automatic transmissions, but with slightly different characteristics.
The base engine of the 1.4-liter model G4LC was strangled from 107 for 99.7 horses for the sake of tax reduction, the torque fell from 135.4 Nm to 132.4. Representatives of Hyundai assure that I will not feel the difference in the power of car enthusiasts (perhaps the characteristics became worse only on paper, and in fact the same 107 horses).
The more powerful 1.6-liter engine (model G4FG), despite the upgrade (in the presence of a second phase shifter, as well as a new variable-length intake manifold) delivers the former 123 horses, but the maximum torque fell to 150.7 Nm available at 4850 Rpm (it was 155 Nm at 4200 rpm).
Whether the new Hyundai Solaris 2 is better than the first generation of the model will show the time m sales statistics. In any case, we very much hope that the developers improved the manageability of the budget employee by providing auto with more stable behavior at high speed.
