AvtoVAZ launches the production of LADA Vesta cars with continuously variable automatic transmission of the Japanese brand Jatco. The new gearbox will be installed at LADA Vesta and Vesta Cross sedans, station wagons Vesta SW and Vesta SW Cross. With the release of the new model in the color scheme of LADA Vesta, a new blue color “Diving” will appear.
