At the end of the last century, foreign cars poured into the post-Soviet space. Some were better, others worse. It is not hard to guess that a list of folk "/>
1. Lada Samara
Why (and most importantly, how) can a representative of the front-wheel drive creation of the Volga Automobile Plant be driven to Russia? The thing is that we are not talking about Lada cars created for local consumption, but about export models. They had a fundamentally different level of equipment, and therefore were highly appreciated by the local buyer. In addition, such Lada had better fittings and parts.
2. Mercedes E-class W123
An extremely reliable, incredibly comfortable and, of course, unpretentious sedan was very popular among the people. There were so many of them that finding such a car was not a problem for those who could find money to buy it. Models with a variety of motors were imported to the territory of Russia. The car from the Germans turned out to be truly indestructible.
3. Audi 100 C3
Because of the shape of the body, the people called this car "herring" and the car in the 90s was able to get its share of fame and recognition in the domestic open spaces. Very reliable, comfortable enough, and most importantly, the roomy Audi 100 C3 has served its owners faithfully for more than one year.
4. BMW 5-series Е34
Popularly compared this car with the T-34 for its reliability. The legendary "five" from the third generation. This car was really cool! There are many urban legends about her (in some places not very decent!). Of course, the BMW 5-series E34 is surrounded by a sad halo of gangster glory. This is the car that the roads wanted and tried to bypass.
5. Volkswagen Passat B3
The car, which in many ways has become a reflection of the consumer interest of Russians (and of all residents of the post-Soviet space). All because they tried to look for a car cheaper and more. And this fellow from the third generation is the best fit for this kind of request. There was a particularly great demand for a station wagon body. Volkswagen Passat B3 was loved for its huge trunk, cheap parts, general unpretentiousness and high travel resource.
6. Opel Kadett E
However, size is not the most important thing. There were also those in the 90s who were much more concerned about the expense and price. Most often, in this case, the buyer's choice stopped at the Opel Kadett E. Unfortunately, despite the very strong demand, the car acquired an exceptionally bad reputation in the secondary market, which later became entrenched for all Opel. What to do, Russian conditions were too harsh for Kadett.
7. Ford Sierra
What did an inexperienced car enthusiast need, who yesterday got off the domestic "/>
8. Toyota Mark II X80
Ferrymen from Japan dragged literally everything that came to hand. The Toyota Mark II X80 was no exception. However, this car was able to earn special popularity with the Russian driver. As expected, the decisive role in this was played by high reliability and a reasonable price, both for the purchase and for the maintenance of the machine. At the same time, the Mark II X80 has good equipment.
9. Mitsubishi Galant MkVI
At one time, the Galant was an advanced car in all respects. Air suspension, turbocharging, steering the rear axle and, of course, only four-wheel drive. All this could be seen only in the most "stuffed", expensive assembly. Most drivers still preferred simpler and more affordable models. Nevertheless, Galant ate its share of the pie in the market.
The past XX century was remembered for many things. Take at least this one Soviet plane "Mriya", which is able to transport a spaceship and in general was created precisely for such purposes.
