TagAZ S-190: specifications, description and reviews
Various automakers are carried out in Russiathe release of machines since the end of the last century. Some build their own factories, others create joint ventures, others sell licenses. This is due to the fact that such companies receive preferential terms with regard to customs duties, etc. As a result, the cost of cars produced on the territory of the country is less than exported, which is beneficial for both consumers and producers. The assortment of such cars is very wide. The local plants produce the most popular budget models, and luxury cars, and less common versions of little-known brands. Among the latter -TagAZ S-190.
This car is compactcrossover. It is a licensed version of the Chinese model JAC Rein, also known as S1, which was built on the basis of Hyundai Santa Fe first generation.
The car was built according to the traditional method for Chinese manufacturers: the design of the original model was completely adopted. The design was also borrowed, but still changed a little.
In ChinaJAC Reinproduced from 2007 to 2011. The car was introduced in the local market before the Russian version appeared, but could not take acceptable positions among the main representatives of the segment for the following reasons.
TagAZ started production of the car with some changes in 2011. Its position in the market remained approximately the same, and in 2014 the issue was completed.
Auto TagAZ S-190 is a 5-door station wagon, traditional for the class. In his design, the features of the firstHyundai Santa Fe,since the construction is adopted from himIn this case, the exterior was partially changed by using designer borrowing fromToyota:in the design of the front there are traitsLand Cruiser Prado,and the back is very similarLexus R
Moreover,TagAZ S-190 externally differs from the Chinesemodel, because before the production was made restyling: changed the bumpers, fog lamps, radiator grille, removed moldings and wheel arch extensions.
In addition, the welding technology has been changed, increasing the number of points, and anti-corrosion treatment.
The body dimensions are 4.5 m in length, 1.875 m in width, 1.73 m in height. The wheelbase is 2.62 m, the track is 1.54 m for both axles. The curb weight is just over 1.8 t (1.7-1.81 t forJAC Rein). For comparison, the length, wheelbase and trackHyundai Santa Feidentical, but the car in question is slightly larger than its width and height.
Testers Rusdriver.ru note good for the Chinese car manufacturing qualityJAC Rein.So, despite the large gaps between the body parts, which also say journalists 5koleso,Welds are missing, as are paintwork defects. At the same time, there are burrs on some details.
JAC Reinequipped with twomotors
- 2-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, developing 128 liters. from. at 6000 rpmand 172 Nm at 3000 rpm;
- 2.4-liter engine of the same design capacity of 130 or 136 liters. from. (according to various data) at 5500 rpm and a torque of 193 Nm at 3000 rpm.
For the modelTagAZ S-190only the engine is .
JAC Reinequipped only with a 5-speed manual transmission. The car with the engine on 2 l front-wheel, and 2,4-liter versionIt hasare full ofdrive unit. Consequently,TagAZ S-190is available only in one version:MKPP, four-wheel drive
It is noteworthy that the car has the same gear ratiosHyundai Santa Fe.
The design, again, is identicalHyundai.Both car suspension independent: front typeMcPherson,rear - two-lever.Brakes on all wheels are disc. The ground clearance is 207 mm.
TagAZ S-190, as well asJAC Rein,has 16-inch wheels measuring 225/70.
Vehicle interior,identical todesigninteriorthe firstSanta Fe,very spacious.Journalists Rusdriver.ru believe,that the quality is not badfor Chinese models, especially as regards materialAnd yet, the quality of both the manufacture and materials of the machine lags far behind the more famous analogs, for example, the sameSanta Fe.Despite the large size of the cabin, the driver's seat is convenient only for a person of medium build and height, and the rear seat has a too low pillow.Testers Avtomarket.ru,as well as specialistsRusdriver.ru,note the incorrect functioning of climate control, poor noise insulation,rigid seats, the lack of the possibility of opening the trunk from the passenger compartment.In addition, according to the testimony of the testers 5kolesousdriver.ru,on the interior there are also burrs.

Budget compact crossovers usually have modest dynamic characteristics, such as, for example,Hyundai Santa Fe,which is the basis for TagAZ 190. The technical characteristics of its engine are even lower, hence, the dynamics suffer too. So, according to the manufacturer, the acceleration to 100 km / h takes 16 s, the maximum speed is 160 km / h (12.5 s and 170 km / h, respectively literSanta fe). According to the testers, the motor has an even character throughout the entire rev range, and with its capabilities it is difficult to achieve even the declared maximum speed. They also note excessive fuel consumption, which is more than 15 liters in urban conditions. Partial compensation for this is the possibility of using 92 gasoline.
The car is simple to operate and hasfront-wheel drive. Journalists note a well-tuned chassis: it gently passes irregularities with relatively small rolls in turns. Also the testers praise the brakes.
As for off-road abilities, they are also close toHyundai Santa Fe,Considering that the engine of the car in question is weaker Strengths in the given conditions arerelatively good geometric patency, due to high clearance and short overhangs, and a relatively long suspension. In other respects TagAZ S-190 is weak on impassability: the engine is not strong enough and powerful, and the simplest all-wheel drive system that connects the rear axle when slipping is also not suitable for this. And yet for the crossover patency is very good. Thus, the firstSanta feis considered one of the best in the class in this indicator.
As it was noted,JAC Reinhas a 2-liter front-wheel drive version. According to the dynamics, it is close to the 2.4-liter, as a slightly smaller performance is compensated by more than 100 kg of lesser mass. In addition, a significant advantage of this modification is a lower fuel consumption. Since such cars are usually not used on a serious off-road, the lack of an all-wheel drive for most users will be felt only in the winter.
JAC Rein,as noted, was presented in two trim levels, differing in the engine and the type of drive.
TagAZ S-190 has the only equipment close to the equipment, again, toSanta fe. It includes climate control, electrical package, audio system,ABS, EBDIn addition, the Russian version, in contrast to the is equipped, in addition to the driver's, passenger airbag.
How much is this model? The price of used cars TagAZ S-190 andJAC Reinis an average of 400-500 thousand rubles.
Place on the market
JAC Reinfor some time competed withHyundai Santa Fe.And at a cost, it corresponded to versions of 2.4 literscfront-wheel driveand all-wheel drive diesel.Equivalent all-wheel drive modification for 2.4 liters cost about 100 thousand rubles more. Therefore, mostof buyerspreferred a Korean car.And this is not to mention other classmates, such asKia Sportage,Japanese andothermodels.And the competitionHyundairemained inabout production timeTagAZ S-190. Packages and pricesdieselSanta Fe Classic, also produced in Russia,were still very close. Also,althoughOther competitors moved to a higher price segmentwith a change of generations and changing market conditionstheir place wasRenault Dusterand othersbudgetarycrossovers, whichalso could not compete.As one of the strongest Chinese classmates can be notedChery Tiggo.
