Jens Riedel on shared impressions about Lada Vesta, which he got in the Deluxe package. Earlier, he writes, the Russian models were some inherent backwardness, Vesta also marks a step Lada in the new century, thanks to the former designer of Mercedes and Volvo Steve Mattina, who now heads the design office of AVTOVAZ.

Sedan with a length of 4.41 m with a smoothly descending back looks nice and catchy thanks to the two side podshtampovkami forming like the letter H. it is Curious that this element of the design, many Russian journalists as the times have been critical.

The Germans thought that the wheels are somewhat lost in the big arches, and after 7 thousand kilometers in the interior still hovers the typical smell of new Frets. Otherwise, Vesta bears little resemblance to Russian. Steering wheel adjustable for reach and height, has buttons control, ergonomic and sensitive. Adjustable Central armrest could, perhaps, climb another couple of steps. Cute selector lever of automatic gearbox invites you to “drive” the car by hand. However, the robot German absolutely do not like — he feels that the car Napping while switching as much as when braking. And learning system of the robot could switch up often and readily, otherwise, it appears that all travel at a speed of 30 km/h (the so-called “residential area”) can go in first gear.


Going on the Lada Vesta in Paris: what the French say?

Powerful enough 1.6-liter engine is virtually silent and keeps the rpm but after 3000 rpm it is somewhat annoying, says Jens Riedel. Suspension is customized for Russian conditions, pits and bumps, which, however, gradually become a reality, and Germany. So this car will be relevant for German buyers.

The instruments on the instrument panel rough, but they all clearly and clearly visible. In the cabin is dominated by hard plastic.

Breakthrough for new Frets were not climate control and not Navigator, touchscreen with rear view camera with good resolution and Bluetooth. There is even a heated windscreen, admires German journalist. Apparently, that luxury from the Russian car he did not expect.

Navigator is “raw”, his lyrics evoke a test pilot for a smile — for example, instead of saying “turn left”, it says “keep left”. Especially touched by the journalist, the expression “end of route”.

Price 12 500 Euro for the basic version, plus 1760 euros for the top version, with 5-year warranty, he finds quite attractive for a vehicle of this class. The main disadvantage of Jens Riedel believes that for the rear seat passengers cannot accommodate airbags.
