- Manufacturer -PSMA Rus LLC, Russia
- Year of issue — 2021
- In operation “Behind the wheel” – from August 2021
- Mileage at time of report – 16,000 km
I had the chance to drive a Combo with a 1.6 diesel of 90 hp.
The most striking (and for many unpleasant) difference with the 115 hp petrol version: the diesel engine is only linked to a manual gearbox, the automatic does not match. Probably, this is also why the fuel consumption of the “gasoline” is almost one and a half times higher.
The actual average consumption (half city road) for Combo Life with petrol engine and automatic transmission is 12 l/100 km. A diesel engine with mechanics consumes one and a half times less. Thus, every thousand kilometers of diesel saves about 2000 rubles.
On the track I hardly manage to “stack” the Combo at 10 l/100 km. Under the same conditions, the diesel consumes less than seven litres.
According to factory data, a 115 horsepower gasoline engine accelerates the “heel” almost a second faster. Although it seems subjective that the diesel is more dynamic.
Inside there is no more noise than in a car with a petrol engine. In some modes, the diesel is even quieter.
Overall a good engine. Still an automatic machine – there would be no price for it…
