A few days ago, South Korean automaker 2018-2019 Hyundai began selling the official restyled version of the Solaris model.
In the company called the car somehow “new Solaris», although in fact the new there is not much.
However, you can turn inside out, pouring criticism 2018-2019 Hyundai’s policies in general, and finding a variety of disadvantages in the new Solaris models in particular, but statistics says that by the volume of sales of this car up close and anyone does not admit to the title of the most popular foreign car in Russia.
And last but not least due to the fact that the car is constantly improving.
After the initial phase of production in the list of equipment was not a heated steering wheel or rear-view camera or parktronikov or climate control.
Moreover, the first copies of the new 2018-2019 Hyundai Solaris, which came off the assembly line at a factory near St. Petersburg, was not even vnutrisalonnoe filter.
And since the situation has changed for the better from one model year to another – a planned upgrade potential buyers budget model waiting with great impatience.

From smaller, but still significant changes in the cabin distinguish the appearance of the rear door pockets with compartments for bottles, new upholstery seats and softer armrest.
In addition, the onboard computer screen now shows passengers ambient temperature.
And yet – in the optional package “Winter” is now included such useful feature as heating the entire windshield.
But the power units, steering and suspension Korean engineers decided not to change.
But now a new 2018-2019 Hyundai Solaris with a 123-horsepower 1.6-liter volume began to install the new 6-band transmission – manual or automatic.
