The Vesta is based on the Lada B-Platform and is powered by a 1.6-liter engine.

The Renault-Nissan company had unveiled the Lada Vesta concept in August last year at the Moscow International Motor Show, and officials had said that series production would begin in September 25, 2015. Now, pilot production of the vehicle has commenced at the Izhevsk plant, which will yield 49 units, mainly for on-road testing. The company will invest 5 billion rubles (INR 469.16 crore) on a new production line to manufacture the car.

There aren’t too many external changes from concept, and the car is a big step forward from current Lada models like the Granta and the Kalina.
