UAZ may revive the Patriot Sport model

3d122ffd-670-0.jpg

Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant launched a survey on social networks about the demand for sports version of the current UAZ Patriot. The opinions of subscribers in the comments were divided: some readers want to see the updated Patriot Sport in the model range, and the majority is waiting for the Patriot in a three-door body.

As a reminder, UAZ presented the short-wheelbase UAZ-3160, which was named Patriot Sport, in 2010, but due to low demand its production was discontinued a year later. During this time, less than 3000 units of Patriot Sport rolled off the assembly line of UAZ, although initially the manufacturer expected to collect 900 such cars per a month. UAZ Patriot Sport differed from the standard SUV by a spoiler on the fifth door, a wheelbase shortened by 360 mm and a length reduced by 300 mm. In addition, it was more passable due to the improved characteristics of the exit and entry angles. In this case, the directional stability of the shortened "Patriot" was deteriorated.

The car was offered with a ZMZ-4091 engine (112 hp) or with a 128-horsepower engine. A diesel modification was also predicted. The compact Patriot Sport cost 70-90 thousand rubles less than the full-size Patriot. It is worth noting that the flagship Patriot SUV is the best-selling UAZ model: in the first half of 2021, 4,779 buyers chose it (-17%), according to the AEB.

Meanwhile, it became known earlier that Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant has suspended the development of a new frame SUV, which should replace the Patriot model. At the same time, the company does not abandon the strategic task of a new platform developing for UAZ SUVs.
