AvtoVAZ started the production of LADA Granta DriveActive


On August 23rd, AvtoVAZ started the production of a new version in the LADA Granta family. According to the press service of the company, now it has expanded due to the sedan in the DriveActive version. The prices and the start date of sales of new items will be announced later. It is noted that the new version is intended for those, who like an energetic driving style and its distinguishing features are the suspension from LADA Sport, aerodynamic body kit and sports seats.

At the same time, the presence of a short-stroke sport-type suspension from LADA Sport allows the reduction of rolls and it improves handling in high-speed turns.

The basic equipment of LADA GrantaDriveActive already includes air conditioning and an audio system. As for the appearance of the new product, stylistically LADA GrantaDriveActive has some similarities with LADA VestaSport. For example, a chrome exhaust pipe was borrowed from it and alloy wheels are made in a similar style. It is also worth highlighting the relief bumpers with red moldings, door sill fairings and a trunk spoiler. In total, 28 new parts and assemblies were introduced in LADA GrantaDriveActive.

LADA GrantaDriveActive has anatomical front seats with developed lateral support. In addition, there is a bright shade in the interior design: the leather steering wheel is decorated with red stitching, bright inserts are in the seat upholstery, and the instrument cluster received a red highlight. As AUTOSTAT reported, the LADA Granta family remains the most popular in the Russian market. By the results of 7 months 2019, its sales reached 76,434 vehicles, showing an increase of 40%.
