Look in the trunk of a universal Vesta and surprised European thought-out decisions.
Lada Vesta Vesta CrossLada SW SW Cross
It all starts with the castle. Universal does not have the traditional VAZ cars larvae: the fifth door opens by pressing the located on the sun visor license plate button, which is borrowed from Ixray. In addition, the trunk can be opened with the key FOB. Button instead, the larvae acquire and sedans.
The door to high rises: the growth of 186 cm I’m under it with the stock. And since no sharp corners, the emergency contact (for example, if the machine is on an uneven surface) will be safe. On the inside of the door trim — two strong and comfortable handles for natural grip. Moreover, the force is chosen so that even a frail woman will close the door easily.
The trunk volume is “under the curtain” — 480 liters as the sedan. And another was to be expected, since the lower part of the machine, including the rear bumper, unified between sedan and wagon — to reduce the cost of production. Because of this, the loading height is not the smallest, but the gap is not the greatest, but it is an inevitable victim.
If you fold the rear seat, trunk volume is increased almost twice — up to 825 liters. Vazovtsy traditionally indicate the volume up to the roof and to the window sill line. If shipping to the eyeballs, you get far per cubic meter.

At once, the Lada looks like a foreign car not only outside but also inside — including the Luggage compartment!
But not only the capacity of a good versatile Vesta. The highlight of the trunk with double floor, divided into two sections.
Each section is roomy organizer (gray foam tray) for small items and hard cover. Trays — same size — lids too. So they can be interchanged to put on top of each other or vertically, or even removed, by configuring the trunk at its discretion. The underground capacity is 95 liters.
I liked the cover: rigid, durable. If you put this on two boxes, you get a comfortable bench for a picnic.
Under the organizer another floor, but soft. Underneath, a full spare wheel with a diameter of 15 inches. This means that for Cross version SW with wheels are only 17 inch, so the tire will play a role temporary. On the other hand, it is loose, with gaps here and there will fit and 17‑inch wheel.
Both organizer covers in their places. A large grid will capture cargo on the floor. Behind the seat tight mesh bag. In the left
the arch is a small mesh that fenced off the canister. Beside her is a small shelf for small items. On both sides — hooks, lighting.Both organizer covers in their places. A large grid will capture cargo on the floor. Behind the seat tight mesh bag. In the left

Boot light is a pair of lights (one left & right), integrated into the side panel of the Luggage compartment. Just fire in the right pane, provided a 12‑volt outlet.
On the side made hooks for the fixation of bags and packages. In addition, there are hinges on which hang three regular mesh: a large square for fixing cargo on the floor, cross mesh bag and small mesh along the niche on the left side. Great solution!
Located in the arch of the right wheel box, lockable lid, can be used for storage of kits or fold it tools. But the left wing made a niche under a five-liter canister — easy to keep the oil or washer fluid.
The rear seat as the sedan. Only slightly changed the padding, modifying the seams and joints. Accordingly, the seat is folded, as at sedan, in the ratio of 2:3 to the back just rests on the pillow. The perfect loading area is not obtained but a slight bump will hold heavy things — and aligned.
The shape of the rear seats as the sedan. But the upholstery is different. From the backrest reclines armrest with dual cupholders.The shape of the rear seats as the sedan. But the upholstery is different. From the backrest reclines armrest with dual cupholders.
Reclining of the backrest of the rear seat is quite comfortable center armrest has two cupholders. Behind the armrest is a plastic wall. I assumed that it would hatch for transporting long goods such as skis, curtain rods, but the flap is not, and not the fact that it will appear in the near future.
The rear end of the tunnel is a 12‑volt outlet, a USB port, and a breakthrough for Lada! — button for heated rear seats.
As the roof of the wagon is flatter (this is evident in the changed window frame of the rear doors), the distance from the seat to the ceiling increased by 25 mm, and this is essential! Tall passengers, to which I belong and will feel more comfortable as the roof is no pressure.
The interior base wagon SW Vesta solved in the same way that saganowski. But the version of SW Cross stands out accents. Orange rings of light surround the instrument dials. On the front panel and door handles used black glossy decor.
I sympathize with bright orange inserts, although someone they can deter.I sympathize with bright orange inserts, although someone they can deter.
Fans of quiet solutions to gray textured upholstery. And for those who crave a stronger, offer a contrasting orange inserts on the door panels and seat upholstery. Cover the cooled glove box (volume 14 liters) no longer crashes when opening, and gently lowered — and pleased interior organizer with Cup holder.
Between the front seats has a large box for small items, lid plays the role of the armrest.
Everything else on sedans in expensive versions: adjustable, including for height, the steering column is equipped with a microlift the driver’s seat with pronounced lumbar support and three-stage heating.

Beautiful and comfortable car! At once, the Lada looks like a foreign car not only outside but also inside — including the Luggage compartment. I’d deciphered the abbreviation SW is station wagon, but as a sport wagon. However, no matter how called. Even just a generalist. Far more important was the attention to detail and human relation to the buyer for which all and was started. Appears to have succeeded.
