Throughout the review of Japanese cars, we will tell about advantages and defects of cars from a model range of two more giants of Japanese automotive industry – the Honda and Mitsubishi companies. The majority of the models presented in the review, in fact, are restyling versions, but not everything is so unambiguous.
Review of Honda carsHonda Civic
Honda Civic – passion and comfort.
Here such two qualities managed to be connected in one car to designers of Honda Civic, thus having made very stylish and beautiful design. You can be sure for 100% that all passersby will look back at your car and to envy. Designers, really, tried wonderfully well.
In Sivik's salon very conveniently, especially to passengers on back seats – there it is spacious and it is comfortable. But not less comfortable conditions and at the driver: the wheel is regulated, buttons are at the necessary distance, sideways there is a convenient armrest and a small platform for the left foot, seats well fix a body. The forward panel rather attractive and interesting – shines white-blue light. Visibility excellent.
But technical characteristics are not so impressionable. To 100 km/h Sivik disperses in 11 seconds that it is impossible to call brilliant result, but switchings happen to slightly noticeable breakthroughs. InfoAdvisor.net also focuses your attention that Sivik is not suitable even for some broken roads on which all hollows are told through a suspension bracket that is not really pleasant. On turns it is also necessary to be careful. For the rest, claims to Sivik are not present.
The price of Sivik makes from 572 000 to 653 000 rubles ($21 200 - $24 200).
Conclusion: Honda Civic – the convenient city car which has, both the pluses, and minuses. In principle, the price corresponds to quality.

Honda Accord – an excellent ratio of controllability and smoothness of the course.
The first that that it is not sensitive to small roughnesses of asphalt wants to note in the Chord, and it can already be told the ticket for a survival in Russia, not to tell me what roads in our country. Do not think that on it it is possible to drive on off road terrain, we did not tell it. It is possible to go by Honda Accord successfully only in city boundaries. In management of a car too shows good results. Ease and speed of a response of a wheel strike. Plus to it, the automatic transmission fulfills as and it is necessary – earlier, not later, and switching happens in fractions of a second.
Let's honestly tell that the car caused in us only positive emotions, the only disappointment – too rigid seats that for certain not to all will be to the taste.
The price of Honda Accord makes from 724 000 to 915 000 rubles ($29 000 - $36 600).Honda CR-V

Honda CR-V – the car created for asphalt.
To what to what, and to appearance and equipment of CR-V claims are not present. Here everything is fine. Let's not spend time and we will talk about technical characteristics.
Slightly below you will see the key Honda CR-V technical parameters. They though not outstanding, but quite worthy. In these data small , in comparison with many other considered Japanese cars very much pleases.
But it everything bare figures if to move on the road, first of all it is possible to note excellently debugged work of a suspension bracket: it rather rigid, as those is not present lists and swings on "waves". Besides, the effective brake system pleased. I.e. on asphalt the car behaves perfectly therefore if you will spend quite often time in traffic jams (of course not necessarily in traffic jams, the main thing that on a good paving), attentively consider CR-V as your car.
Is not suitable for off road terrain of Honda CR-V, at most it is possible to pass where the ordinary car will not pass because of smaller clearance. In extreme conditions the car did not show "superpassability", and in the version with a box "automatic machine" at a driving for off road terrain in addition also quickly wears out also transmission.
The price of the car makes from 862 000 to 1 007 000 rubles ($34 500 - $40 300).
The maximum speed – 177-190 km/h

Engine capacity – 2 l
The maximum power – 150 hp.
Transmissions – 6-staged MKPP, 5-staged AKPP
Review of Mitsubishi carsMitsubishi Lancer X
Mitsubishi Lancer X - almost the leader … is more than passion.
It is our conclusion. It is severe and unchangeable. Will describe this InfoAdvisor.net car not as usual. Let's make a small respite, we will leave all excess words and at once we will list pluses and minuses of Lancer X.
Advantages: the beautiful and stylish design, harmony in an interior, a good noise isolation, all devices are near at hand, accurate management, lack of lists.
Shortcomings: the small luggage carrier, lack of character (which it is supposed for a car with aggressive appearance), demands a constant control.
The cost of the car makes from 482 100 to 651 200 rubles ($17 990 - $24 300) depending on engine displacement.
The maximum speed – 191-200 km/hMitsubishi Pajero

Fuel consumption (in a city cycle) – 8,2-11,9 l / 100 km
Fuel consumption (in a country cycle) – 5,4-6,4 l / 100 km
Fuel consumption (in the mixed cycle) – 6,4-8,4 l / 100 km
Engine capacity – 1,5-2 l
The maximum power – 80-150 hp.
Transmissions – 5-staged MKPP, CVT Sport Mode
Mitsubishi Pajero – opening for country rest.
Excellent car for a trip to the village or the district with a bad paving. It perfectly passes practically on any off road terrain and thus combines lines of expensive, beautiful car with good high-speed indicators. Equal in a driving on off road terrain of Mitsubishi Pajero there is not a lot of! But also to praise highly it as the best SUV, InfoAdvisor.net too will not be. Though Padzhero passes the majority of road collisions, completely to be sure that will not get stuck in any snowdrift, is not necessary.
Now about important shortcomings. First, the car shumnovat, designers should have worked better over a noise isolation. Secondly, it is not really steady on turns, especially on turns with a height difference. And, thirdly, uses a lot of fuel that can push away many Russian buyers.
On it all – other notable "defects" are not present. You needed to draw a conclusion – whether such car is necessary to you or not. We think that it is possible to find for smaller money the car approximately with the same characteristics. If it does not grieve you to spend a little spare cash, about what then conversation? Buy!
The cost of the car makes from 1 340 000 to 1 634 800 rubles ($50 000 - $61 000) depending on the engine displacement and transmission.
The maximum speed – 174-200 km/hMitsubishi Galant
Dispersal to 100 km/h – 10,8-12,7 with

Mitsubishi Galant – a scope and freedom.
Saying the word "Galant", at me in the head the word "comfort" for some reason emerges. Probably, these two concepts not of a razdelima, at least, for me. But, as it appears, they also not razdelima and for founders of Mitsubishi Galant, as with comfort in it everything is all right. Besides key parameters to which usually drivers pay at once attention, also such small, but very convenient details as regulation of brightness of illumination of devices are thought over; cavities in a luggage carrier for road trifles and so forth.
On a question: Whether "Designers should have paid attention to it?", – it is impossible to answer instantly. At first it is necessary to weigh everything because there are shortcomings of Galanta which could be avoided: too sharp backing, slow braking and some other. Dear founders of Mitsubishi Galant, maybe, it would be worth working at first over it, than to care of different trifles?
But of course, not everything is so sad, there is also a mass of pluses: the engine obediently and quickly gains steam, almost imperceptible gear shifting, good controllability.
Conclusion: Mitsubishi Galant – quite acceptable option for those whom the car for movement on the city, with good running characteristics and high level of comfort interests.
The cost of the car makes from 761 000 to 863 000 rubles ($28 400 - $32 200).
The maximum speed – 200 km/h
Dispersal to 100 km/h – 11,5 with
Fuel consumption (in a city cycle) – 13,5 l / 100 km
Fuel consumption (in a country cycle) – 7,2 l / 100 km
Fuel consumption (in the mixed cycle) – 9,5 l / 100 km

The maximum power – 158 hp.

Got to this part of the review, one of the brightest representatives of a Japanese auto world – the extraordinary design allocates them at once from some other cars. For certain it also played an important role in manifestation of interest in these cars. Whether there correspond technical characteristics of models from Honda and Mitsubishi to those requirements which you impose to the car, everyone will solve for himself.
We cannot but tell about other not less popular Japanese cars released under the Mazda and Subaru brands. You learn about them from the following survey .
