“These are different cars, not the ones that were lit up earlier”

After the publication of the first photo of the Lada Iskra station wagon , which was assembled at the VAZ Engineering Center, pictures of a new sedan car appeared on the Web.

The car was photographed on a public road, as reported by the Avtograd News insider public on the VKontakte social network. That is, he is already being tested.

A flame will ignite from Iskra, the project is in good motion. Visually, you can note the diode head optics and a large multimedia screen. These are already other cars, not those that were lit up earlier. Our engine, VAZ, there is no information on the checkpoint yet.

Sergey Tsyganov, a well-known auto expert and host of the Russian Automobile Telegram channel, predicted that the Iskra would be more expensive than the current Lada Granta, and also said that the car would be shown in August. Although it was previously reported that the presentation and start of production are scheduled for next year. Recall that the car should get a panoramic roof and other innovations.

Apparently, AvtoVAZ will present a pre-production prototype of Iskra in August this year. The same units that are used in the current “Grant” will be used in the car. These are VAZ engines and a VAZ manual transmission, a Chinese variator, which will be installed on the Granta and Vesta from next year. The car will cost more than the Granta but less than the Vesta because it is more compact than the Vesta. At the same time, it must be remembered that as soon as AvtoVAZ equips Vesta with key components – electronic units, a stabilization system and an automatic transmission, the model will significantly rise in price. Now AvtoVAZ can produce Euro-2 cars. This opportunity will soon disappear. When AvtoVAZ fully switches to Euro-5, the weighted average price of VAZ cars will rise. Accordingly, “Iskra” will cost no less than the basic version of “Vesta” or slightly lower, but in any case significantly more than “Grants”.
