Vadim Novikov and Mikhail Kutinov, who drive the “Patriot” as part of the UAZ factory team, explained why they believe that their SUV is not inferior to competitors on the track, including the Toyota Land Cruiser.
“And even in pairs, the Patriot car, equipped with the ZMZ-409, according to our feelings, is quite competitive on a dirt surface with imported cars like the Land Cruiser, with which we have to compete. Well, Toyota has somewhere It has its own advantages, but we also have undeniable ones. Therefore, in our opinion, it is a completely competitive engine”, the corporate newspaper Motor quotes the pilots.
The racers specified that the racing “Patriot” is not equipped with a standard engine, but with its upgraded version in accordance with sports regulations. She, according to Novikov and Kutinov, “is a bit behind in the progress of what ZMZ can offer at the moment.”
The athletes also responded to criticism of the Russian engine: “The imported one (SUV – ed.) consumes 25 liters, the Russian, for some reason, 15. Moreover, the imported engine has twice as much and consumes almost twice as much.” Only in ours someone complains, but for some reason they don’t complain about him. We ourselves can say from personal experience that you can easily fit in urban conditions on a Patriot car with a ZMZ-409 engine with a flow rate of no more than 15 liters, even with aggressive driving with sharp acceleration, with sharp braking, when it occurs the maximum fuel consumption. Perhaps, those owners who really don’t like their car and don’t take care of it have high gas mileage.”
