Cars with a pick-up body are not very large, but rather stable in demand. This is a very versatile and practical class of cars that combine the qualities of both an SUV and a small truck. Pick-ups are often chosen by enthusiasts of outdoor activities on the ride, such as hunters and fishermen. There are not many pick-ups on the Russian market, but with the help of experts, Autonews of the Day selected the TOP 3 best models.
3rd place – Volkswagen Amarok
An excellent example of the modern German approach to making utilitarian cars. It seems that there is nothing special in the design of the car, but Amarok still looks very organic and strict, sometimes even brutal. Perhaps "Amarok" has the most balanced design in our top.
Technically speaking, the German pick-up is also good. Under the hood is a 3.0-liter diesel engine with a capacity of 163 to 224 hp, which works with a manual six-speed gearbox or an 8-band "automatic". Equipment and comfort of the cabin also do not ask questions. Here are just the highest of all current trinity prices that noticeably spoil the whole picture.
2 place – Mitsubishi L200
To date, two versions of the L200 pickup truck are for sale in the Russian market – updated and dead end. New looks stricter, but dorestayl has an expressive, but ambiguous design. Moreover, the old version is now offered at a considerably lower price, i.e. less than 2 million rubles (the most affordable pickup in our rankings).
Among the advantages of the car, you can opt for good road holding, a functional interior and a very efficient diesel engine with two power options (154 or 181 hp). The manual six-speed gearbox or the 5-band "automatic" work with this 2.4-liter unit.
1st place – Toyota Hilux
Japanese pick-up, which is considered to be one of the most reliable on the world market. Such cars often take part in all kinds of expeditions with difficult working conditions, where they show themselves from the best side. Toyota has succeeded in combining simplicity and reliability with modern equipment, so that the comfort level is at a high level.
Under the hood of the Toyota Hilux are reliable and economical 2.4 and 2.8 liter turbo diesel engines, which respectively have a capacity of 150 and 177 hp. The first engine is aggregated with a "mechanics" with six speeds and more powerful – with a 6-band automatic transmission. In terms of price, the Toyota Hilux costs about halfway between the expensive Amarok and the more affordable L200.
There is also a cheap price category, including domestic and Chinese models, but apart from low costs, they have no special advantages.
