Identical Chery Arrizo 8 in a rich Ultimate configuration with color schemes, LED blue beams and black numbers with code 18 (assigned to the Ministry of Emergency Situations) were spotted on the streets of the capital. Judging by open data, the previous carriers of numbers 0047mm 18 and 0064mm 18 were four-cylinder Toyota Camrys of the outgoing XV70 series.

In Russia, Chery Arrizo 8 business sedans are officially sold, but the model is not localized here. Prices start at 2.8 million rubles, but a package with a 1.6 turbo engine (186 horsepower, 275 Nm), 18-inch alloy wheels and a panoramic roof with sunroof will cost 3.05 million rubles, excluding promotions and special offers. This is exactly the sedan in the photo.

The Chery catalog has a signature gray body shade, and orange brake calipers are the only possible option for our market. Ironically, the color of the brake mechanisms is almost the same as that of the Ministry of Emergency Situations. No other Chinese sedans have been noticed on the balance sheet of the Ministry of Emergency Situations yet; Before the departure of global automakers from Russia, the federal structure mainly purchased Toyota Camrys of different generations for officers.

The Russian National Guard began to switch to Chinese business sedans

The Ministry of Emergency Situations is not the only law enforcement agency that has paid attention to the Chery Arrizo 8. In the spring, similar business sedans appeared at the National Guard. In both cases, we are not yet talking about large batches of machines: rather, about a trial purchase to evaluate performance qualities.
