UAZ will launch the sales of automatic transmission Patriot SUV in Chile


 

RusAutoNewsCom.- UAZ continues to expand in the Latin American market, launching the sales of the automatic transmission Patriot SUV in Chile, as announced by the company press office. The modification, which made its debut in the market, has fulfilled all the necessary certification procedures, implemented since November 2019. The vehicle has received the approval for usage within the territory of the country, as a result of an extensive programme of tests.

Since the model fully complies with the local requirements, no constructive changes were applied. The vehicle is traditionally equipped with a proven 149.6 hp ZMZ Pro petrol engine and a reliable 6-speed PUNCH Powerglide gearbox. The Patriot SUV will be available in two versions: Comfort Automat and Lux Premium Automat.

As estimated by the representative of the Chilean side, the market volume of the aforementioned version will exceed 200 units per year in the first stage. Hunter and Profi models and the SGR line are officially sold in the country currently, alongside UAZ Patriot with automatic or manual transmissions. The certification process of the new UAZ Profi Polutorka with dual-pitch rear axle tyres will also start in the foreseeable future.

Five official dealer centres of the Ulyanovsk brand will have commenced operations in the country by the end of 2021. In addition, there are plans to open an official representative office of the brand in Peru.
