Even during the very difficult crisis in the automotive market, crossovers and SUVs constitute its most significant part. Their popularity has not decreased. And it can be stated that even in such a difficult time is gaining momentum … Chinese cars.

If in the Russian Federation, 415 thousand passenger cars and light commercial vehicles were sold in the Russian Federation from the beginning of the year to April, then 212 thousand came to crossovers and SUVs.
