Production of LADA Vesta SW and Vesta SW Cross started


At LADA Izhevsk plant, it was started the mass production of the LADA Vesta SW and its off-road version LADA Vesta SW Cross started today. Sales of new models will begin in the autumn of 2017, informs the press service of AVTOVAZ.

As it was noted, LADA Vesta SW and Vesta SW Cross complemented the model range of LADA Vesta, one of the most demanded vehicles in the Russian market. As a result of eight months of 2017, this model is among the top-three of Russian bestsellers. The new models combined an expressive design with crossover features.

In the process of preparing of the serial production, more than 100 prototypes of LADA Vesta SW and LADA Vesta SW Cross were tested, which were tested in laboratory and road conditions, successfully passed crash tests and reliability tests with full load on a special cobblestone road, ground and gravel tracks. Novelties passed the cycles of climatic research in a thermal chamber at temperatures from minus 40 to plus 55 degrees. The carried out checks confirmed the high level of safety and reliability of the new design.

Particular attention was paid to the fine tuning of the LADA Vesta SW suspension, taking into account the new mass distribution of the car. For LADA Vesta SW Cross it was managed to develop a unique suspension variant with increased ground clearance and an effective balance between the initially inherent LADA Vesta's responsive handling and comfort. In the body structure, there were introduced 33 additional stamped parts, which made it possible to increase the rigidity of the body for torsion and thereby improve maneuverability and vibro-acoustic comfort.

To start the production of LADA Vesta SW and Vesta SW Cross in Izhevsk, it was mastered the stamping of 79 new and modified body parts; welding, painting and assembly shops were modernized - 38 new technological operations appeared only on the conveyor. The first pre-production car LADA Vesta SW went to the training class, where the personnel of the car factory are trained. 

Cars LADA Vesta SW and Vesta SW Cross have supplemented the model range of the LADA plant in Izhevsk, where the LADA Granta liftback and the LADA Vesta sedan are already manufactured today.
