Recently, the Russian automobile concern "AvtoVAZ" set about creating completely new, modern cars. This decision was made due to the fact that the competitiveness of the domestic car was very low. Even the cheapest Chinese cars were much more interesting and of better quality. In this regard, it was fundamental for our domestic manufacturer to change the entire policy of the production of VAZ cars. New designers breathed life into the concern and began to create modern and interesting car models. Over the past few years, the company has introduced new VAZ crossovers, such as Kalina Cross and X-Ray, to the world community.
New VAZ: "Kalina Cross"
For the first time this car was presented in the summer of 2014. The new Russian crossover VAZ - "Kalina Cross" - has very serious technical characteristics, an interesting design and its own character, which is felt when driving.
The appearance of the car is quite fit and sporty. Distinctive features in appearance are: a body kit, a sports rear wing, alloy wheels of a largeradius, an interesting exhaust system - that's all about the external parts. Inside, the car has special struts that give the car rigidity and improve its handling.
The interior of the car is spacious and quite comfortable. New VAZ crossovers, including this one, are interesting in the design of the front panels. Cars have reached a whole new level of design thought - they do not have dullness and ridiculous details.
"Kalina Cross": specifications
"Kalina Cross" is equipped with a four-cylinder power unit with a volume of 1.6 liters, 4 valves per cylinder. This engine gives the car 106 horsepower. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h is 12.2 seconds. Fuel consumption can be said to be average for cars of this class - 7.8 liters in the combined cycle. The maximum speed of the car is 165 km/h.
Car suspension is completely independent, front and rear "Kalina" has good disc brakes. Manageability is excellent. The car behaves well both on the paved road and on rough terrain. Experienced Russian racers tested this car and were pleasantly surprised by the independent suspension settings. This model is perfect for everyday driving in the city.
There is also a weaker model with a volume of 1.6 liters, but already 2 valves per cylinder. The car received a power of 86 horsepower. New crossovers VAZ "Kalina Cross" will delight customers with their running gearqualities.
Price for a new VAZ - "Kalina Cross"
Lovers of domestic technology were very happy when they learned that a new VAZ crossover was released. The price of this car will be approximately 400,000 - 450,000 rubles. There are two vehicle configurations. The first is the simplest - there is nothing fundamentally new in it, except for 2 airbags and ABS. The second configuration, in addition to these two components, has at its disposal heated side mirrors, heated front seats, air conditioning and a good audio system.
In addition to all this, manufacturers claim that another model will soon appear, the cost of which will be 490 thousand rubles. This version will become the owner of a permanent all-wheel drive and some more electronic security systems. Which systems will be installed is unknown, the manufacturer keeps this information in the strictest confidence.
Car VAZ "X-Ray"
Several years ago, AvtoVAZ presented to the world community a concept car of its own production - a new crossover VAZ "XRay". This is the first model designed by designer Steve Mattin. The car has an attractive appearance, excellent technical characteristics and a high degree of comfort inside. The domestic auto giant turned out to be an excellent new VAZ crossover. When this model will be released into mass production is not yet known. However, manufacturers assure that no later than 2018, this car will already be rolled off the assembly line as a production car.
The appearance of the car is somewhat reminiscent of the "Infiniti FX35", however, if you look closely, the domestic car looks much better. The front grille in combination with designer optics create a very interesting combination. The appearance of the car is quite taut.
Inside the cabin is very spacious. Despite the fact that the car is 3-door, 5 people can easily fit inside. Ergonomics of the cabin at the level. The driver inside will feel comfortable. The cabin contains almost all electrical systems that improve the comfort of being in it - from 4-zone cruise control to heated seats.
New VAZ crossovers not only have a beautiful appearance, their technical side is no less attractive from an engineering point of view. And here "X-Ray" is no exception. The car will be equipped with permanent all-wheel drive with intelligent traffic control systems. Since this is a crossover class car, the ground clearance will be 18 cm. As for power and engine volumes, it’s too early to talk about anything here, the manufacturers themselves have not yet decided on the versions of power units with which new cars will roll off the assembly line. It is only known that the latest AvtoVAZ developments will be applied, which will make engines economical and powerful. In the coming years, the automaker will provide information about this car, but when will it be- nobody knows.
Price for the new "X-Ray"
Since it is still unknown when exactly the new VAZ crossover will be released, the price for it also remains uncertain. However, manufacturers assure that it will not rise above the bar of 600 thousand rubles. It is worth noting that this price is very reasonable for a car of this class.
The model of this car presented at the exhibition will be finalized, and apparently, many exclusive items will be slightly changed or removed. All this is done so that the car can become cheaper for domestic buyers.
The beginning of March 2014 was marked by long-awaited news for motorists, AvtoVAZ officially introduced the new Lada Granta hatchback.
