In the base, an updated Vehicle Type Approval (OTTC) appeared on the Lada Vesta sedan. Apparently the plant is preparing to bring the cross-version of this model to the market. For the first time the sedan Vesta Cross was shown in 2016 as a concept at the Auto Show in Moscow.
Most of the parameters in OTC are the same except for the maximum length, which has grown by several centimeters and the height, which in some versions can reach 1526 mm. This is 9 mm less than the cross version of the Vesta SW Cross, which is easy to explain by rails at the latter. Thus, the ground clearance of the cross-sedan will exceed 200 mm – quite an off-road indicator.
New engines for the sedan is not provided: it’s all the same 106-strong 1.6-liter and 122-strong 1.8-liter gasoline engines. As transmissions, the plant offers a 5-speed mechanical box and a classic “robot” based on its AMT5.
When they show a sedan Lada Vesta Cross – is unknown. But changing the certificate indirectly indicates that it will happen in the coming months. For example, the hatchback Lada XRAY data has not yet been updated, but its version of the Cross will be shown only at the end of August at the Moscow International Auto Show.
Most likely sedan Lada Vesta Cross will be accessible exclusively inexpensive complete sets, with a full set of options and two-color registration of an interior.
