When buying, few people think about it.
Subcompact cars with engine capacity up to 1000 cc. cm are especially popular in Europe, which is understandable, given the cost of fuel. In Russia, preference is given to engines with a volume of 1.5-1.6 liters, said Sergey Shabunin, master acceptance officer of the Veshnyaki Avto technical center.
At the same time, he noted that minicars with a “liter” engine have the biggest disadvantage of the engine resource: it is about 200 thousand kilometers.

After that, the unit may need to be overhauled. For cars with engines of 1.5–1.6, the engine life is, on average, about 400 thousand km. The final figure is affected not only by the quality of oil or gasoline, but also by the driving style, the specialist explained.
The main problem of a low-volume engine, the expert called the fact that it is not always designed for the weight of the car. If such a car drives in a stream at a speed of more than 70 km / h, then the driver has to constantly “spin up” the engine, sometimes to the red zone. Fuel consumption from this increases, and the engine gets very hot, Shabunin concluded.
