I only have eyes for the Tesla Model S now, nothing else matters...

Forthcoming Model 3 is interesting though especially if it does sell for $35,000 (it won't in Denmark with the 180% car tax on top).

Just seen this.

Not bad...

2x4 or 4x4, 2/2.5, man/auto, trim level??
Heavier duty suspension only for Russian roads of course.. :ROFL: :ROFL: :ROFL:

toyota.ru

2 litre petrol auto option  - all there

Its going to cost you much more than the eco for insurance, you will be looking at 110/130 k.r.

I already posted it's 12,000 Rubles ;)

Servicing will also rock your wallet pretty hard.

free servicing for three years.

And they are uncomfortable sofa's...


Probably - what with the uprated suspension for Russian roads ?

Good luck with it and the engine warning light...

That was the Ford Focus..

I checked here - before buying ,,,,

http://www.carcomplaints.com/Toyota/RAV4/2016/

Cannot spot any major issues with engine warning lights

Am not going to respond to your other bollox...

Correction : I left off a zero on the insurance 120k Roubles = 1500 UK Pounds / 1800 USD - for insurance ..   nearly 4 times more than the UK for a RAnge Rover Evoque worth 54K Pounds new ?

Why is Russian insurance SO much more expensive ?
