The most popular Korean cars that arrived in Russia through parallel imports

Despite the fact that the Korean brands Hyundai and Kia have officially “frozen” the supply of cars to our country, Russians are actively buying products from the Land of Morning Silence, using the parallel import window. Last year, passenger cars worth more than $100,000,000 arrived from South Korea. Which models do our compatriots prefer, found out the AvtoVzglyad portal.

Apparently this is exactly the case when the input is “not parallel”. No wonder, because thanks to the “gray” schemes, such a stream of cars of different genres has appeared on the market that the eyes widen. And before, a Russian had never heard of many of the models. Whether there will be more – the association “Russian Automobile Dealers” predicts further expansion of the range of cars imported into the country. The range of four-wheelers is expected to be supplemented with dozens of fresh models in the coming months. Among them, of course, are the “Koreans” who are so beloved by our brother.

If earlier we could only dream of some immodest off-road Hyundai Santa Cruz, now, as they say, nothing is impossible. The same Kia Sportage, which managed to get on the Russian conveyor belt, but really did not get into the official stock, is not difficult to find among dealers and private sellers. However, among the sought-after Korean cars there are much more advanced options. For example, the Hyundai Kona crossover, which survived an adrenaline rush in the form of an N version and a major design metamorphosis. For a cosmic appearance and a couple of liters under the hood, people are asked from 1,700,000 to 3,000,000 rubles.

And what do you think of the updated Kia Seltos, which received a whole range of smart security systems and comfort options? Beautiful and practical. Moreover, in Russia there are already enough cars from both Korea and China. In the latter case, we are talking about the KX3 model in a glamorous Fashion Edition outfit, showing off a stylish decorative body kit and a special styling package. The issue price is from 2,500,000 rubles.

For those who want something simpler, there is a budget compact crossover Hyundai Bayon, built on the Hyundai i20 platform. For 2,100,000 fortified Russian rubles, you can fish a car with a 100 “horse” engine. Yes, scarce, but for the city it is sufficient. In any case, it is better “Korean” than the domestic LADA for the same money.

Russians are actively buying updated Hyundai Santa Fe crossovers and Kia Carnival minivans. In the first case, cars are sold at a price of 3,750,000 to 5,000,000 rubles, and in the second – from 4,900,000 to 5,500,000 “wooden”. By the way, the no less “minibus” Hyundai Custo, a platform car named after the legendary traveler Jacques-Yves Cousteau, can become an alternative. Prices for the model start from 3,600,000 rubles – for 170 forces in the engine compartment. A 2-liter unit requires a surcharge of at least 200,000 “rubles”.

And the flagship “rogue” Hyundai Palisade is also in great demand, mainly with a diesel engine, which is ready to please the owner for almost 7,000,000 rubles. But the gasoline Kia Sorento will be almost half the price.

In general, as you can see, there are a dime a dozen “Koreans” on the market. As they say, every whim for your money. Remember that no “parallel” imported car is covered by an official warranty. Therefore, when laying down hard-earned money for a “gray” novelty, think: is the game worth the candle?
