The AutoSTAT experts calculated the costs of maintaining two popular cross-country vehicles – the KIA Rio X-Line and the LADA Vesta SW Cross – and found out which one is more profitable to own. All calculations were performed in a special “Car Owner Calculator”, created by the agency itself.

If we take into account the original versions of models with a manual transmission (Vesta SW Cross with a 106-horsepower 1.6 engine and Rio X-Line with a 100-horsepower 1.4 engine), then “Korean “, as it turned out, costs exactly one kilometer 9 rubleswhile in our “Vesta” it costs on average 8.8 rubles.

A slightly different focus in versions with more powerful engines (Vesta SW Cross – with a 122-horsepower 1.8 engine, Rio X-Line – with a 123-horsepower 1.6 engine). In this case, their cost of ownership is identical and is approximately 9.3 rubles for one kilometer drive.

Thus, the owners of both cars will spend a month on the maintenance from 14.7 to 15.5 thousand rubles, and in 5 years or 100,000 kilometers it will go from 880 thousand to 930 thousand rubles (the calculation was made for Moscow and the Moscow region, as well as a driver aged 40 with 20 years of experience).
