Lada Vesta with a CVT all new features

Whether decreased clearance of Vesta with the new gearbox and whether really to change the oil in the variator, contrary to the manufacturer? To these and other questions are answered by the expert “Behind the wheel”.Cyril Mileshkin “Behind the wheel”

Vesta entered the market four years ago. Even detractors of AVTOVAZ, acknowledged that this is a huge step forward for the plant and the domestic automobile industry. Except that the robot AMT does not deserve compliments. The laziness, inadequate work and unhealthy appetite to grip it spoiled an overall positive impression of the car.

A year vazovtsy quietly changed the clutch for enhanced resource has increased markedly. After a year and a half, also encrypting from the press and customers, has introduced the 2.0 firmware. She has transformed the character of the car, and not too sophisticated might think that under the hood installed the classic slots.

It was all half-measures. First, a more “brisk” firmware got robots working with the engine 1.8, and the cars with the more popular engine 1.6 left with the same software. Secondly, the direct competitors ride with preselective and 6-speed machines. Something had to change!

Alas, AVTOVAZ Shine only units of the Renault-Nissan Alliance. Hence, only the CVT (on the European Renault put and robotic with two clutches, but they are expensive).

A complete restyling of Vesta is scheduled for next year, and with it the car will change very much (the rumours and the background is). But now, simultaneously with the CVT, the flagship has gained a lot of innovations. Among them, metallic blue “diving”. In a palette and one more addition — black colour Maestro.A complete restyling of Vesta is scheduled for next year, and with it the car will change very much (the rumours and the background is).

Variability

I haven’t forgotten! Renault have still and ancient “greedy” 4-speed automatic DP2 but not to put it on the news! So she was allocated a CVT Jatco JF015E, known for Capture, Logan and Sandero Stepway in the performance of City and some Nissan models. The range is large, and if the Frets with a CVT will sell well, it is possible that it will start to collect in Russia.

The sewn CVT with six virtual gears. Its main feature is a two — step planetary gear, which protects the multilayer metal belt from excessive loads in the most unpleasant modes. That is, moving machine like the mechanical first gear and then the traction picks up the belt, and the transition process provides a torque Converter. Same thing when driving in reverse.

It seems that the torque Converter gave marketers the idea to promote a new transmission under the abbreviation of at — such a classic machine. But let’s not deceit: it’s a CVT.

Introducing the CVT on the Logan and Sandero, the engineers were able to maintain clearance as the cars with the mechanics from the lower crankcase clearance reduced by 20 mm. So CVT is only installed on a “raised” Stepway.

From Vesta clearance has not diminished. The CVT and the Renault is below: according to official figures, the sedan and station wagon — 7 mm and cross versions — 4 mm. But the bottom point of the engine protection did not change — variable speed Vesta retained outstanding accessibility.

Jatco JF015E is not ideal to its reliability there were a lot of claims. However, before installing it on the Frets of nissanusa said that all problems are solved. If so, your 150 000-200 000 km up to the first investments he needs to nurse, and it’s not bad, although hydromechanical machine is still more reliable and seamlessly. Vazovtsy say that the oil in the CVT do not need to change. We have a different opinion: the oil should be changed every 60,000 km if you want to live with a proper variator long.

Warranty on drive CVT is the same as the rest of the modification: three years or 100,000 km.

Another Expat

Paired with a CVT works imported engine. Model it has index HR16, Renault — H4M. With a working volume of 1.6 liters was removed 113 forces. Production, up to the casting head and the block, established in Togliatti.

AVTOVAZ officially allowed to feed the engine with gasoline AI‑92, although he is unlikely to be the food going to be happy. For example, editorial West with a VAZ 1.6 like not everyone is “ninety-second”. But the dealer will not be able to drop-kick the client with warranty handling if the tank is filled gasoline 92 octane.

Large-scale alterations in the engine compartment is not required. Vesta and XRAY originally designed for using that motor, but have not installed it solely because of the cost. However, in 2016 hatchback a few months went off the Assembly line with this engine in conjunction with a manual transmission.

Not much time was wasted and calibration. The motor and CVT have been “podrejeni”, it took just set them under the vest. For this reason, the CVT is unlikely to be released in tandem with cheaper domestic engines: you will have to spend a lot of effort to “marry” CVT c them, and thus the price of Vesta CVT will not be able to make more attractive.

With the transition to the variator Vesta became quieter — with VAZ box left to “brand” the buzz, and the new exhaust system sounds nobler. Four years on the editorial West I these nuances are used and believed that the machine is very quiet by the standards In the class. It turns out that you can do better.

And vibrations from a couple of expats less: standing still, do not understand, started up the motor – and from VAZ is a chronic microKORG.

Engine H4M stood under the hood of Vesta as a mother. He has a chain timing, aluminum block and variable phase on the intake. In the plus column are also more quiet and smooth than the engines of VAZ.Engine H4M stood under the hood of Vesta as a mother. He has a chain timing, aluminum block and variable phase on the intake.

Not fond of

Variable speed Vesta and “mechanical” have the same mass — 1230 kg. Imported “aluminium” engine is easier domestic “iron” as much as the CVT is heavier mechanics. But 113 forces, partly pojedinih variator, West for brisk overtaking on the highway is clearly not enough.

When the front of the slug, no problems. However, if to spur the car at least 90 km/h, the engine howls more than luck. “Seven times measure, once overtaking” the creed of the owner of Vesta with a CVT.

And appetite are not happy! Official figures promise small savings: 0,1–0,3 l/100 km on the machine with a robot and a 1.8 motor, which is always reputed to be voracious. I’m two days drove about 500 km almost entirely in suburban mode, quite impressive. Trip computer sedan showed an average consumption of 8.1 liters per hundred, and wagon SW Cross — 8,3 liters. But we go not always. Operating experience of drafting Vesta with the robot suggests that the actual appetite a little higher.

It turns out, the test cars on the highway more than a liter blocked the claimed consumption for mixed cycle (of 7.1 and 7.4 l/100 km, respectively)! Partly this can be attributed to features motors, partly on mountainous terrain. But still on the “free” ride with a CVT don’t count.

In the city on the West of the CVT after robot — bliss! No plugging, no brakes switches, no failure of logic. Even with AMT version 2.0 can not compare, but the firmware is great altered the character of the robot. The CVT in the city is better! But if you love dynamic country ride, pick a car with a manual transmission.

Rug on top

Supplement for the variator on the West relative to the mechanical box is 50 000 rubles (for the robot at any VAZ models pay twice as less). AVTOVAZ to launch Vesta with CVT has revised the recruitment and composition of trim levels, so price list new.

Jatco put on even the cheapest modification. Minimum 736 900 rubles for variable speed sedan, high — 982 900 rubles for a SW Cross with a CVT and all options. Competitors are more expensive by an average of 80 000-120 000 rubles, with similar power and a similar level of equipment.

Machine with robot AMT chose only 9% of buyers of Vesta. And Kia and Hyundai almost three quarters of sales are to the version with automatic transmission: even in the budget segment people are willing to pay for comfort.

Now the Frets has opportunity for growth. Marketers expect to increase the share versions with the CVT at least 30%.

The Exclusive package is now available not only for the sedan but for the wagon SW. Its distinctive features outside — the nameplates on the trunk lid and rear doors, black exterior mirrors, a nozzle on the muffler, spoiler (the sedan) 16‑inch two-tone wheels original design (by the way, in other configurations the style of “sixteen” alloy wheels changed).

I wonder whether the next step to install on drive 150‑horsepower turbo engine 1.3 from Arcana? He revealed all the possibilities of the chassis! In 2020, the West is waiting for restyling, and — what the hell.

According to official figures, Vesta with a CVT is the most nimble of “automated” versions of the model. Sedan 1.6 CVT accelerates to hundreds faster version 1.8 AMT 0.8 seconds (of 11.3 vs. 12.1), universal — 1.1 seconds (12,2 13.3). Subjectively, the variant with 122‑horsepower engine is more nimble.

For the city is better than the AMT High fuel consumption

And a couple of details

The Cup holders are now the same and deeper (early left was purely symbolic). Half-liter bottle is still holding them uncertainly, but the fast food cardboard cups can be placed safely.The Cup holders are now the same and deeper (early left was purely symbolic).

To fold them you can by pressing on the key or the driver’s door open — the same button on the door or transfer selector from “Park” into “drive”. Hooray, for the first time domestic car glass steady on the go! In versions without electrosolderie mirror remained in the old buildings.Expensive configuration mean power folding side mirrors.

Together with the CVT AVTOVAZ introduced to the West many new. For example, the door finally found a reliable latches for the intermediate positions. Now less likely to make a nearby car in the Parking lot. The question arises: why the West had to wait four years, and the other models of the decade? And another for all the news started to put frameless brush. Imported. Really in Russia there was provider?!
