The Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant began to offer customers to abandon the ERA-GLONASS unit, brake force distribution system, anti-lock braking system and airbags.
True, the absence of the ERA-GLONASS unit does not affect the price of the car, but if you refuse ABS, EBD and airbags, you can save from 5 to 20 thousand rubles, as reported by Autonews of the Day.
The maximum discount of 20 thousand rubles when buying a Patriot with a manual transmission can be obtained for refusing the driver and passenger airbags in the Comfort package. The absence of ABS and EBD will reduce the cost of the car by 5 thousand rubles, while it will be possible to replace the standard steering wheel with a driver’s airbag with a simplified Icarus steering wheel without it, which will provide a benefit of another 10 thousand rubles. Rejecting the driver’s airbag without replacing the steering wheel will also reduce the cost of the car by 10,000 rubles.
A discount of up to 20 thousand rubles is also valid when buying a Pickup Truck with a manual transmission. We’ll have to abandon both frontal airbags in the “Comfort” package. If you choose the Classic or Classic Fleet version, then the benefit can be a maximum of 15 thousand rubles: 10 thousand rubles for replacing the standard steering wheel with an Icarus without an airbag and 5 thousand rubles for the failure of ABS and EBD.
When buying a commercial model “Profi” without a driver’s airbag, you can get a discount of 10 thousand rubles. Refusal of ABS and EBD gives an additional discount of 5 thousand rubles.
