These Russian SUVs Sell New (2017) for $12,000-$15,500

UAZ Patriot for $12,000

They start from 12000-15500 US dollars in Russia, and they’re 4X4 SUVs. They’re called “Patriot” and they’re made by UAZ. For the price, they might be worth a look, even if shipping them over might not be something that’s going to happen right away.

An interesting insight from Stephen James Cooper: “When UK leaves EU, I think there will be a new market for Russian Off road cars, if they can be engineered to RHD. There are no Landrovers in UK anymore and all the Japanese vehicles are so ‘complex’ There is a place in a farmers heart for simplicity.”

What do you think of these vehicles? Should we get some in North America?
