This test we made the decision to collect around Renault Dokker, which made an appearance in Russia within the finish of this past year. However, analyzing the competitive atmosphere “French”, we deducted that to check it correctly and never with anybody: just announced Fiat Doblo worth significantly more costly – in addition to counterparts from Peugeot/Citroen who’re now while generational change. Therefore, we made the decision to create ourselves another task: to locate a new Renault alternative, rebounding from the Zelenskaya – it’s, obviously, speaking concerning the passenger version. What’s interesting within this machine?
First multitasking, which supplies high body having a spacious interior along with a family to hold, and make, along with a journey to visit. As it happens the vehicle for work and leisure – as well as in functional terms it’s nothing more than a regular passenger vehicle. The Volkswagen Caddy is really a celebration of the format, but it’s worthwhile utter money. The the complete opposite of a German vehicle – our dear Largus: it isn’t “heel”, but “henpecked”: the rooftop is gloomier, however the body longer. Compare?
As it happens, the “Docker” and never Renault, not French. Because initially this vehicle received the Romanian brand Dacia, being natural-born Moroccan – it happened six years back, while in Tangier began manufacture of “heel” elevated around the platform B0. Thus, the nearest relative from the “Docker” our darling “Logan” and “Duster”. And also the stuffing they intersect: within the Russian reality Dokker could be gas (1.6-litre engine, К7М, 82 HP) or turbo (engine К9К capacity of just one.5 liter, 90 HP) with uncontested 5-speed stick shift.
The option of modifications typical for such equipment, though quite modest. Within our market, Renault exists within the passenger version, as well as in the alteration of purely cargo Van (delivery vans) – the second is cheaper, however, and you may stuff all sorts of equipment as much as navigation. Seven-seat versions didn’t happen whatsoever.
Capacity passenger “Docker” roughly half a lot. Why about? This value depends upon the model and configuration: multiplication of vibrations in the plethora of 459до 540 kg. it ought to be understood that on diesel to choose a complete group of passengers and baggage within the trunk simpler: this motor isn’t as responsive to load because the gas 1.6.
From the purpose of look at easy loading Renault-commercial is well considered. The accessibility load compartment supplies a “vest”, split into unequal halves. The sash swing open in the right position, however, freeing the intermediate latches, door can open 180 levels to get near to the ramp. A little loading height: 570 mm. a corner from the expected large (800 litres), however you can easily extend in to the cabin, folded sofa. The trunk seats are removed progressively: may be put back around the pillow, and so the sandwich is defined upright. Generally, the potential of transformation is excellent.
As with other “heels”, the best way to the rear row runs with the sliding door around the starboard side, as speaking concerning the base version. It may be purchased being an option – either enter the greater costly version Drive such as the one we’d. Rear spacious, but include at least: no handles to seize, no pockets to place Luggage. Landing is nearly vertical, the 3 of these sit easy, but to stay they’ve for one another: the handles aren’t. And Home windows don’t go lower only slightly available to the outdoors, departing a niche for ventilation.
Right in front row poor little, but nicely. The salon is nearly just like a “Logan” from the second generation. Ergonomics isn’t without flaws, but man is undemanding to rapidly Orient within the atmosphere and may get accustomed to anything – except, possibly, particularly rinochnogo cruise control, ingeniously riskreducing the cabin. The steering column can be adjusted just for tilt, after which only in wealthy grade – automatically it’s stationary.

Visibility completely glazed body good, however the mirror continues to be not big enough. Furthermore, within the dirt, your body rapidly will get dirty, and also the view with the interior mirror is reduced by 1 / 3: the wiper is just around the bigger 1 / 2 of the trunk door – as with “Largus”, however.
Interior no frills, however it suits the outline from the vehicle. All plastic is difficult, costly versions appear glossy decor, which increases the salon of nobility. Loved shelf around the ceiling – however, exactly the same unit can feature other machines.
- economical diesel
- cheap options
- good options of transformation salon
- decent ground clearance
- reasonable cost
- specific ergonomics
- couple of amenities of dispassion
- you can’t order the 3rd row seats
- no modifications to”automatic”
- an excellent Supplement for diesel
Were able to try both versions: gas and diesel. Using the turbodiesel, obviously, Dokker runs lighter, well informed obtaining the interest rate and aren’t as responsive to the burden. Meanwhile gas and also the vehicle isn’t disappointed, to uncover it had been hard to overcome the fact that it is capable of doing nothing vegetable. An ordinary vehicle! A minimum of within the city. Around the track, obviously, the possible lack of traction can give an impact on overtaking: area drag at high body decent, and silenok enough. But existence continues to be possible – especially because of the 120-1000 improvement in cost. The storyline of rideable characteristics could be summarized level of smoothness: empty “Reno” a unique nobility isn’t any different, but to state the road is continually experiencing discomfort, simply not worthwhile: a poor bounce, “Docker” doesn’t suffer. But “Largus” in this way better.
From the purpose of look at your budget from the Franco-Romanian “Moroccan” was effectively joined into our reality: exactly the same format because the competitors – including Caddy is significantly more costly. A little annoying significant surcharge for that diesel, but there’s already a necessity to think about how rapidly it covers itself. Choices are not very costly, but when getting associated with them, the cost from the “Docker” is going to be over 1.a million, meanwhile, which amount may not look too terrible otherwise for that Largus, that is less expensive.
Lada Largus Mix
Popularly favorite Largus weren’t always domestic: nee this really is Romanian Dacia Logan MCV – in other words, the universal based on the very first “Logan”. And not simply universal, however with a elevated roof and extended wheelbase last circumstance has permitted to tug in to the interior third row of seats, although there’s the typical 5-local modification. In addition to a cargo van with solid metal panels and smooth floor. Interestingly, the modification of generations Romanian Logan MCV switched into a regular wagon. So we found Largus in April 2012 in Togliatti premiered manufacture of a brand new “Lada”.
First, “Largus” was offered to French with 1.6-liter engines K7M (84 HP) and K4M (102 HP), but later these engines were replaced VAZ power units: in 2016 underneath the hood, the bottom form of the VAZ-11189 (1.6 l, 87 HP) and from October 2017, folded from the first wagon, with 16-klapannym VAZ-21129 (1.6 liters, 106 HP). Now the option of modifications is very decent: two engines, five trim levels, 2 or 3 rows of seats. Of special note is really a cargo van, and “crossovery” Largus Mix – with elevated ground clearance, off-road plastic body package and larger wheels. However, no automatic transmission or all-wheel drive “Lada” no.
When the van “Largus” has the capacity to require 750 kg of cargo, the burden capacity from the wagon (“Mix”) doesn’t exceed half a lot. Therefore, within this sense, Lada parity using the Renault and VW. However, the helpful amount of a corner within our vehicle is certainly under those of the people from other countries: the utmost for “Largus” (should you pull the 3rd row seats and fold the 2nd) 2350 liters, and “Docker” and “Cuddy” is able to accommodate greater than three cubic meters of bags. Furthermore, a minimal roof, demanding towards the height from the products. The loading process nothing complicated: back “vests” you’ll be able to stand out 180 levels in the closed position. However, conventional side door rather from the sliding restricting freedom of maneuver, so when it comes to easy loading “Lada” still slightly inferior to rivals.
And that is area of the transformation salon special states “Largus” isn’t: third row of seats simple to dismantle and assemble the 2nd sandwich and placed vertically, creating more maximum space for Luggage.
Security in the rear row Largus looks much better than competitors”heels”. This is actually the passenger landing, the doorways have armrests, as well as on the ceiling – handles which may be understood. The legs and mind space is sufficient, however the three people sit worse compared to the “Docker” and “Cuddy” on the ground stands a really pronounced tunnel. Around the door handles no – rather, you will find cutouts around the door armrests cards. However the third row is very functional: you can easily sit even adults taller than average.
From the purpose of look at the motive force “Largus” is “Logan” the very first generation, with all of its shortcomings for ergonomics. Home windows secret is on the Central console, the control unit climate searching lower a shallow Cup holders won’t hold one half-liter plastic and so forth. However the interior reminds concerning the cost from the vehicle, saying, don’t like to consider some thing costly. Oh, no, it is best to suffer and buycotts.
“Largus” looks not very modern, however, a significant drawback that is certainly not stalling
Have the difference?
It’s almost there: “Largus” same lever “mechanics”, and the phrase inclusion is extremely similar
Using the the least adjustments
that provides a “Largus”, to consider an acceptable posture in the wheel is not difficult
The wide part of the glazing from the body enables us to discuss good visibility, but enough weaknesses. It is the only wiper around the double doorways from the cargo compartment and small exterior mirrors – with right-still just a little blocked through the inclined pillar. At least you will find rear Parking sensors, the advantage package is wealthy.
- spacious interior
- comfortable second row
- full third row
- enough number of modifications
- attractive cost
- excellent ride
- fuzzy transmission
- lottery quality
- no versions SARC
- specific ergonomics
- simple salon
The caliber of the inside decoration of the miracle in the “Lada” can’t expect what goes on. Plastic hard, otherwise brutal the decor is poor, include low. The instrument panel from the same kind of “Logan” – it’s that easy, but understandable its a great informative. The mind unit doesn’t pull around the proud title from the multi-media, but it’s good: radio is decent, the background music plays with USB, Bluetooth works. OK!
Shestnadcatiletnim informs the vehicle a great quality of ride and acceleration, though not impressive, although not depressing a minimum of. The selectivity from the gear lever leaves much to become preferred, as well as in this sense “Largus” like the “Docker”. Rulitsya machine understandable and foreseeable, but many importantly – wins level of smoothness: roughness Lada is by using the correct comfort, while demonstrating a good margin of consumption. Although not a “jumper” Largus lays even softer!
Within the group of budget domestic vehicle wins a landslide victory. Universal starts from 544 900 rubles, which kills even in the cost of relatively affordable “Docker”. A clever Mix (689 900) may appear costly only from the usual “Largus”, however with this type of cost, within the camp cars opponents for him there.
German Caddy may be the longest-running model on the market. However, nachinalsya like a pickup: the very first “athletic shoes” sample in 1979 would be a truck based on the then Golf. The 2nd generation would be a classic “heel” like our IZH-2715, having a obvious division from the body for passenger and commercial part, and also the third “Cuddy” acquired its current shape. And just what generation now? The state record states concerning the 4th: the modernisation in 2015 am significant that Caddy is totally regenerated. Actually the present engine remains the same body originate from 2003, but completely modified. And also the filling today is very different.
Searching at the plethora of modifications, arrived at the final outcome that two identical “Cuddy”, possibly, doesn’t exist. Two choices for the size of your body, a couple of gas and diesel motors (as well as gazobalonnogo equipment), “mechanics” or “automatic” (or “robot” DSG), front-or all-wheel drive plus different versions that may be supplemented by countless options – in a nutshell, exactly what your heart desires. However, in Russia, not every one of modifications can be found: for instance, no cars with 1.2-litre gas turbo along with a 1.6-litre diesel. For the market, the gamma power units looks poorer: either the naturally aspirated gas 1.6 (110 HP) or 140-horsepower 2. diesel (all wheel drive power is slightly under – 110). But otherwise the choice is really as wealthy as with Europe.
The capability of Caddy within the various versions differs, however, generally, comparable using its competitors: cargo vans will be ready to undertake Board as much as 750 kg as “Docker” with “Largus”. Within the situation of passenger versions from the benchmark is really a mark on the highway: for instance, by subtracting the curb weight in the full could determine our yellow “Athletic shoes” has the authority to take only 501 kilograms – both people and cargo. Meanwhile to overload the device easy, thinking about his semimestny.
Luggage capacity depends upon the size of your body and quantity of seats within the cabin. Within our elongated seven-seat Caddy Maxi Existence boot capacity differs from 530 to 3880 l within the fundamental version, that is shorter by 470 mm cargo space of 340 liters less. In the perspective of convenience in loading various modifications will also be different. Machines with hinged doorways tailgate can near to drive to the ramp, and the like versions as ours – having a huge lifting door – provide the chance to complete the loading work even while it is raining. Besides, it arrives with a set of vibrant brought lights that within the darkness an excellent light throughout.
Transformation salon all similar “Docker”, aside from the truth that there’s another row. He’s back, however the seats could be entirely taken off the device and then leave in the spare room for those who have it obviously. Disassemble the furnishings may not be difficult, however it weighs well: someone may require a helper. The center row also folds, but you may still lower the rear of the leading seat – then your entire entire cabin could be shipped to excessively oblong objects. Practical!
The rear row is preferable to Renault. There’s no bare metal around the doorways, but pleasing towards the folding tables within the backrests from the front seats. Glass sliding doorways don’t fall, but has sliding air vents handles which may be understood within the turns, by no means.

The ergonomics are very well considered: the “Cuddy” you don’t need to prikazivati, once is sufficient to adjust the seat many not to concern yourself with the quest for an ideal landing. Is modifying seat height and lumbar podpora, the wheel fits in the possession of, and buttons on its spokes online resources music as well as an onboard computer. Visibility is very good, even though the exterior mirrors might be bigger. Area washing the rear window greater than the cut from the shirt “Docker” and “Largus”. And incredibly good rear view camera, only need the vehicle that lengthy.
Salon the vehicle brand automobile in design, however the commercial materials: plastic everywhere. But the horizontal bar in the Central bar in body color nice variety towards the interior. Multimedica great: functional and will get along well with smartphones. Dear only: 62 400 rubles.
- good ergonomics
- excellent diesel engine
- the option of automatic transmission along with a full drive
- numerous modifications
- wide options of transformation
- our prime cost
- costly options
- mediocre level of smoothness of the course
- excessive surcharge for diesel
Two-liter diesel coupled with DSG works fine: “Athletic shoes” rides very intensely. Find fault using the driving characteristics from the “German” won’t work – unless of course, obviously, to create allowances for mediocre level of smoothness of the course: suspension, though and not the cargo, but left near her. Rails, mix joints, big bumps the vehicle is nearly hopping, great Recalling balance cheaper Renault. This, however, is treated download.
And the other claim, the reason behind which gave another spring snowfall. The make an effort to overcome the parapet very opposed stabilization system, which didn’t let it spin the wheels and clogged the engine. From the mute product is not immediately found, and also to dig in to the menu did not have enough time, therefore we needed to act vraskachku what “robot”, because it switched out, not love. Generally, leave ultimately be located, but osadochek continued to be.
Volkswagen is easily the most costly vehicle within the segment. With no budget of just one.4 million to some Caddy you do not even need to inquire the cost, as well as then it is only a pretty sad set. And the like a dressy “Athletic shoes” having a lengthy body Maxi in performance and a lot of options pulls by 50 percent.5 million. To include a bit more – and you may go ahead and take newest full-size crossover VW Terramont! Or four the typical “Largus”.
