Lada Vesta Sport came to Germany: good or bad?
Lada Vesta Sport – the German competent opinion about the “Sport” novelty AVTOVAZ
The German experts on cars in the last few years literally stuck to the theme of various “Lad”, “UAZ”, “Neve” and other cars manufactured in Russia. No, honestly, in the German press repeatedly appear technical briefs, small test drives, reviews with a touch of nostalgia for the Soviet models, whose more or less direct descendants produced in 2017, 1028. That’s to Lada Vesta Sport got… did not have time to show her our MIAS 2018. If interested in reading excerpts from the German press about the new version of Lada Vesta – welcome!
As noted by German journalists from AutoBild:
“Lada “hones” Vesta and launches sporting variant of the Russian sedan. At the Moscow motor show 2018 will debut the sedan with a little more power. At the front that the Russians will get an updated bumper with decorative linings of red. Russian front gets a revised bumper with a red outer trim. Trapezoidal chrome grille air intakes under filesresearch made in Vesta Sport, color Matt silver, and the grille received emblem “Sport”. Also the word “Sport” emblazoned on the side, emphasizing to what Kingdom belongs the car.”
On the sides is traced become familiar to previous models of “X”-design, continue the description of the Germans. “A punch is seen, an additional element – red decorative stickers. Vesta is available in a sport version in 17-inch alloy wheels, chassis as standard, lowered by 16 millimetres. At the rear of the Lada Vesta installs a spoiler on the boot lid plus bumper integrated diffuser and exhaust bifurcated system” in principle, everything is standard, about how it will look “Sport” everyone knew for a long time, and at the Moscow motor show last mystery was finally dispelled.
And here is an interesting comparison, which somehow never come to mind in the form of Association: “the Rear fog lamp located in the center between the exhaust pipes is vaguely reminiscent of “rain brake” racing F1″.
The interior follows a fitness plan
In addition, salon dynamic “Vesta” has received the portion of sporty details. “The seats are upholstered in “mixture” faux leather and fabric on the back “Vesta Sport”. On the rim of the steering wheel has a red stripe on the 12 o’clock – as on race cars,” noted one of the most visually apparent changes are the Germans. It is also noted that to create a racing atmosphere, many elements, including arrows and illumination of the dashboard, the stitching, seat and ambient lighting got a red tint. The dashboard and door trim in Vesta Sport embedded carbon.
Finish the Germans some technical details, which all lovers of Lada also have been heard. Quote:
“The Russians pressed from the powerful 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, the original capacity of 123 HP, a whopping 145 horses. Torque is 182 Nm. In combination with a manual five-speed transmission, the sprint to 100 km/h should correspond to 9.6 seconds. Whether Vesta Sport is offered in Germany, Lada has not yet disclose”.
It’s funny to hear adjectives like “powerful” or “tremendous” relative to the 1.8-liter four VAZ-21179. It’s some kind of subtle joke or statement of fact? What is your opinion?
Well, we are waiting for test Vesta sport on the Nurburgring Nordschleife. That would be really interesting. Enough ranting, give practice!
