What frame SUVs are the Russians frantically buying up in the “secondary”

BCHD – an abbreviation familiar to lovers of huge SUVs, stands for a large black jeep. For many fans of such cars, this is not only a way to stand out on the road, but also an opportunity for self-realization. The AvtoVzglyad portal found out what kind of off-road vehicles and why Russians actually buy.

Seeing a petite driver behind the wheel of a huge SUV is common in Russia. Psychologists attribute this phenomenon to the fact that a person experiences complexes – either because of his short stature, or because of the small “male economy”. And owning a huge behemoth turns him into the master of anything and everything. Indeed, many of the drivers of frame SUVs allow themselves rudeness and recklessness on the roadway, believing that everyone else is obliged to let them pass everywhere (read – be afraid).

However, not all of these drivers are so brutal on the road and use the car correctly and subtly. Although in some cases they agree that owning a healthy SUV adds them not only emotions, but also “showoffs”.

Meanwhile, more than half of Russian motorists do not even consider buying “frames”. In any case, this is apparent from the results of a study conducted by Avito Auto analysts. According to the survey, 33% of respondents dream of purchasing a heavy-duty SUV, and 16% already own one and are likely to upgrade their “horse” to something similar over time.

Most owners of “frames” were registered in Moscow – 61%, despite the fact that at the beginning of 2023 such models accounted for only 4.5% of offers on the secondary market. By the way, the average price of a used SUV is 1,850,000 rubles, while the average cost of “used” cars as a whole does not exceed 800,000.

The most popular “villain” in Russia is expected to be the Japanese Toyota Land Cruiser, including the Prado, followed by the native Russian UAZ “Patriot” in popularity. As for brand preferences in the SUV frame segment, our compatriots call Nissan the most successful brands, next to Toyota and UAZ. But if only 14% of the study participants voted for the crafts of the Ulnovsk Automobile Plant and 15% for the products of the Japanese Nissan, then 31% of the respondents voted for the all-powerful and unsinkable Toyota.

It is noteworthy that women are also not averse to exploiting more frame “all-terrain vehicles”. For example, the Korean Kia Mohave is more preferred by the representatives of the weaker half – 16% versus 10%, but UAZs are most often chosen by men – 17% versus 11%.

Russians rightly consider high cross-country capacity as the main advantages of such models, as stated by 73% of voters. However, in almost half of the cases, the participants believe in the indestructibility of such cars, and 43% are satisfied with their comfort. The latter is, of course, debatable, but no one deprives fans of all-wheel drive cars of their right to an opinion.

As for the shortcomings characteristic of this type of transport, the Russians point to the increased consumption of “fuel”, the inconvenience of operation due to the large dimensions of the car, as well as the high cost of both the car itself and its maintenance . Oddly enough, almost half of the respondents simultaneously use a frame SUV as a family car, 44% – for travel and 58% – for trips to nature, where they often have to find their way to the goal on open impassability.
