Rent Hyundai Solaris (5D) to enjoy its power

The review of the Hyundai Solaris (5D) – an attractive and powerful car. Its main advantage is its design and low rental price. However, its handling isn't very well, and its cabin isn't spacious. Passengers might feel tired during a long trip.

How have the Solaris been changed after restyling? And is it worth taking Hyundai for rent?


The updated Solaris hatchback became more attractive. Earlier it had plain round shape, but now the body has sharp edges and expressive lines. Headlights are decorated in the general style. The rear part of the car looks very good.


There are black lacquered inserts in the interior. Although the appearance and quality of plastic aren't very attractive, the material has a planar texture. There is a modern multimedia system on the centre console. But the display isn't colourful. The air conditioner is organized very well, but it's located too close to the gear lever. The beautiful dashboard is highlighted in blue, which makes it not very readable. It glares in the afternoon, and your eyes will feel tired at night. Also, the centre armrest is not enough comfortable because of its small size. However, there is a key start button, heated windshield, and heated steering wheel. At the bottom, there are lAUX and USB connectors.

The driver's seat has a good enough lateral support. There are a lot of adjustments. However, only two passengers can sit on the rear seat. The leg room isn't enough spacious, so passengers might feel uncomfortable during a long trip.

Driving perfomance

The model is equipped with a 1.6-litre, 123bhp engine and a 6-speed manual transmission. The torque is 155Nm.

The dynamics of the car can compete with cars of the older segment (C, D, E). The car accelerates very quickly up to 150kmph, but then a low capacity imposes its own limitations.

The energy-intensive suspension provides a high level of comfort and prevents rolls. Passengers will definitely like it. The soundproofing is good for a B class car. You won't hear wind or engine's noise while driving up to 140kmph. But handling isn't excellent – its understeer isn't enough.

To sum up

The updated Hyundai Solaris can compete with vehicles of the C class. The design is also pretty good. In general, the car is quite good for daily use, and it's suited for almost everyone.

Advantages of the model:

  • design;
  • equipment;
  • powerful engine;
  • high level of smoothness;
  • cheap rental prices in Moscow.

Disadvantages of the model:

  • narrow rear seat;
  • ergonomics;
  • handling.
