The idea is good, but why is it so collective-farm? What is wrong with the expeditionary version of the residential UAZ “Loaf”

Designers preferred to invest in technical “improvement”, having forgotten that the car should look good from the inside.

Recently, for the amount of 500,000 rubles for the UAZ “Bukhanka” you can buy a set with the minimum necessary equipment that will “turn” the Russian van into “Baikal” – a tourist camper or even a camper on wheels, it’s already closer to anyone.

The most “juice”, of course, will be offered in the maximum package of options for the “Loaf”, the price of which will exceed one million rubles – the sky-high amount at first glance will be fully justified if we compare the UAZ “Loaf” with the closest competitors in the segment. The most affordable caravan-foreign car buyers will cost 3.5 million rubles – it will be Mercedes.

At the same time, the number of useful options should not be misleading – the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant decided not to change it, because it’s easy to get to the new UAZ Baikal, which was done by Russian motorists in the UAZ theme community on VKontakte social network, sharing, in their opinion, the important shortcomings of the promising camper as a whole.

The passenger cabin was trimmed with high-quality plastic, now there is no impression as if the car was “stuck in the 70s,” but at the same time, the seats remained the same “rigid, uncomfortable stools”, and the steering wheel looks like it was stuck on it with pieces of plastic left over with expeditionary equipment UAZ “Patriot”. Yes, and door opening handles are still the same antediluvian.

The material itself looks very heavy and untidy, the tile with the burner seems to be marching, the cheapest possible, and the joints, as usual at UAZ Bukhanka, leave much to be desired – the build quality was not significantly tightened. Motorists believe that even 500 thousand rubles for such poor performance is too much. The idea itself turned out to be good, but the execution is extremely “collective farm”, Russian “uazovody” complain.
