Top-end Lada Vesta with touchscreen display spotted – Spied


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Showroom launch in November.

Following the first look at the interior undisguised, new spyshots of the Lada Vesta reveals the same interior, but with a touchscreen display and steering mounted controls, suggesting that this could be the features offered in the range-topping trim.

This could be the range-topping trim for the Lada Vesta, given the availability of features like a touchscreen display, and steering mounted controls.

Higher trims will also get dual front airbags, heated front seats, electrically adjustable wing mirrors, automatic headlights, automatic wipers and ABS as optional equipment. The design appears to mirror that of the Lada Vesta concept, which is a step up from the Ladas of today.

The Lada Vesta will be the first production-spec model to be based on the company’s new design philosophy, with the signature ‘X’ motif on the front bumper and side body panels. It measures 4,410 mm long, 1,764 mm wide and 1,497 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2,635 mm, and is, reportedly, based on the ‘Lada B’ platform developed by AvtoVAZ and Renault-Nissan. The car is hoisted on 185/65 R15 tires.

Powering the Lada Vesta will be a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter petrol engine available in 8 valve and 16 valve configurations, which will produce 87 hp and 106 hp, respectively. A more-powerful 1.6-liter 16-valve unit sourced from Renault-Nissan delivering 114 bhp is also considered. The only transmission options available are a 5-speed manual gearbox and an AMT unit (16 valve engine only), say Russian reports.
