What are the differences between LADA Kalina Cross and LADA Kalina-2?

The developers of LADA Kalina Cross had a problem - to create a crossover with the ability to move in a small off-road and not to lose the smooth of Kalina-2, at a minimum funding. As a result, clearance increased by 23 mm. The new suspension with gas-filled shock absorbers (it is used on the family LADA Kalina from January 2014) received the original adjustments. The rapids and the wheel arches received a plastic kit that protects the enamel of body from damage ("not to be afraid to scratch, by going by car to the country"). There are laths that make the car visually higher. Specifically for this vehicle it was designed a new style of wheels that will be introduced in October and it was changed the track - for greater stability and handling. It was changed the angle of rotation rack, and it touched the steering changes. AvtoVAZ’s designer in their work for the first time adjusted the suspension under a certain type of tire (for "cross" it will be used tires Pirelli). Therewith, the car put on weight, fuel consumption increased only by 0.2 liters. Seats were changed: they received improved lateral support. In the arches of rear wheels there were introduced special sound-absorbing screens. In order to improve the properties of the brake booster it was used a new, reconfigured pedal and there were introduced new pads. 

Improved insulation, more comfortable seats and strong suspension - such strengths of the new LADA Kalina Cross were called by journalists on the basis of recent test drive in Kazakhstan. At the car it was used 8-valve power aggregate with a modified pair, allowing the car to become a little bit more dynamic. However, to meet the wishes of regions that want to have a few options for configuration and a more powerful engine, AvtoVAZ promises even 16-valve unit (106 HP) in December and in the first half of 2015 the car may receive an automatic gearbox. However, the maximum price for this car AvtoVAZ would like to keep at the level of 450 thousand rubles (this is a powerful engine and a number of additional options that previously applied only to the "luxury" versions, but now they are planning to put on a "norm» Kalina Cross) .
