Even modest during operation of the Korean budget car for the Russian roads showed the imperfection of the body in both versions Disadvantages and problems of body 2018-2019 Hyundai Solaris -. It is, above all, extremely thin-walled doors without ribs good quality rigidity – in the case of a side impact in an accident, they will not provide any protection.

Another problem is clearly manifested itself Solaris – substandard body painting. Already in the first year after the purchase of the model by some owners of the facts of occurrence coating cracks were observed, and the repainting of an effective result and did not give – cracks appeared again. 2018-2019 Hyundai Solaris owners have to put up with such deficiencies in the body structure and the characteristics of the paint, the car because the budget, and, clear business, is far from ideal.

The quality of the national assembly manifests itself in some other details. For example, often when driving may appear extraneous scratches, noise and vibration.

The rest, as interior – everything is almost perfect. The instrument panel is multifunctional and is very comfortable and ergonomic, steering is quite comfortable. Very well designed and high-quality front seats help make even the long trip comfortable and pleasant, without causing fatigue.

However, the rear seats for three is not enough, though cars capacity and declared as five people. To sit down on the second row of Korean cars assembled in Russia uncomfortable, blame domed roof.
