Vesta SW vs Sid and Focus — battle wagon

Newly-made universal Lada Vesta SW we decided to push the last of the Mohicans-class Golf, Kia CEE’d and Ford Focus. Cars niche and undervalued, we believe.


They did it! AVTOVAZ finally caught a wave that carried the plant to meet the profit – the newest SW message queue which even the most successful competitors are not seen with fat years.

The station wagon has long ceased to be purely utilitarian and moved into the category of cars for outdoor activities. The concept of “sleeping car” to them too. I know this firsthand, as he himself had ten years to move exclusively on the “barns” and the body of another type object. Because unlike the sedan, the news index SW was waiting for like no other car. Still, it’s nice that in this age of sedans and crossovers gave place to universal. Yes what! Athlete, Komsomol and simply beautiful Sport Wagon!

Who are the opponents? To compare West with other universals Lada unfair price — it never does! As such, we decided to give her a real thrashing: rivals chose “adult” wagon — recently updated with fresh Ford Focus and Kia CEE’d.

Test Lada equipped with 122‑horsepower engine and 5-speed manual transmission. The Kia engine is slightly more powerful (130 HP), but it works in pair with 6-speed automatic. And Focus under the hood a 1.5-liter EcoBoost with 150 HP, which is assisted by 6-speed automatic.

This time we are not limited to a standard set of tests, and used the cars as intended — went on a journey to the edge of the Tver region, Vesyegonsk.

Vesta station wagon rides no worse than the sedan. She’s no stranger to the joy of unity with the driver. And direct it even more stable.Vesta station wagon rides no worse than the sedan. She’s no stranger to the joy of unity with the driver. And direct it even more stable.

Lada Vesta SW

The debut was to take place a year ago, but after the change of leadership of AVTOVAZ premiere was postponed. In the range there are off-road modification of the SW Cross. Engines — 1.6 and 1.8. Box — 5-speed manual transmission, and a robot.

Side bottom

The way to the heart of the universal is through the trunk. He largely shaped the face of the machine, and with that SW Vesta in order. Togliatti did not go through “eleventh” or priors, when the stern was placed a large suitcase cargo compartment. Sloping roof and heavily littered with the rear rack give the West the full right to bear the name “Sportwagon”. The image is associated not with the cottagers having seedlings, and fit tourist (or tourist!) with a neat fashionable backpack. Roomy “backpack”?

Good reinforce the impression of little things like the side pockets, hooks and nets. Of course, littered with stands limit the capacity, and the ceiling is low. So that the sport dominates here over tourism. I recall a couple of times had to sleep in a wagon… Repeat the experiment?

Tried to settle in the West with a sleeping bag and then slammed his head on the ceiling: sit on a sleep will not work. In side the discomfiture has happened: the ceiling above. The trunk is noticeably larger, while on the underground with a great organizer too, is not forgotten. Upset egg-shaped opening large box is not zapihnesh.

However, the trunk is the most capacious, and its form (and aperture) are close to the ideal: Cuba. In addition, Ford has minimum loading height, and the bumper trimmed unpainted plastic, so spoil paintwork when loading difficult. And it does not mean that Ford gives the impression of mossy handyman wagon is very harmonious!

But with a back line of Focus came bobble that update is not correct. All right, if that’s higher Then 175 cm and landing on the rear seats are comfortable and enough space. But with the growth of over one hundred and eighty — problem. The supply of space will remain only on the head, and in other areas a complete failure.

Vesta, formally live segment below, but rear passengers offers less space, and part of the nice little things like a heated seat is not inferior to competitors. But the front of the cabin with giblets gives class. And the hard plastic and buttons Windows cheap and the feeling of comradeship in the West more acute. On the go and look a glass of coffee fall out of the shallow cupholders. Well at least, flawed armrest between the front seats, which we “kicked” in the saloon, gave way to a decent Central Boxing.

But the chair itself is worse — the back is uncomfortable pressure in the lumbar region. Among the benefits is the mass of branches and “Chainikov” that before a long journey can shift everything around in his pockets. Ford is not so generous in space and literally covers the driver and front passenger on the array front panel. But offices and coasters here, not less. Ergonomics — zero issues.

From our Trinity the most comfortable fit driver provides Focus, what convinced March of five hundred miles to ves’yegonsk. He would have better visibility, and the massive windshield stand aggravated by small mirrors and wide not cleared the sector of the windshield.

In Kia to visibility came more serious, and made little vents in the bases of the front pillars, but large mirrors Koreans have a fuse is not enough.

How critical a good overview on the muddy roads in Togliatti know firsthand that West got large mirrors, and blind spots it is not less an example.

The car will start

Vesta loved the ergonomics and visibility, but also the chassis tuning. The stability of the machine wagon on the straight, I had no doubt — after all, the shape of the body contributes more than the sedan, which is confirmed by my years of experience “sarasoda”. A nice bonus is that the handling of Vesta SW as well understood as that of the sedan. Universal dutifully writes the arc, showing the tendency to over-roll and not uzbrukuma heavier stern, and in the limit is not inclined to derail the rear axle, than the sin wagon. For example, the Kia CEE’d.

Up to a point CEE’d happy clear responses and not worse news dives into turns, though the steering is not so precise. But during sharp swerving out the skeleton in the trunk. Easy drift front gives way to a breakdown of the rear wheels, and all this is accompanied by a series of spurious oscillations. Of course, the stability system alert and will not allow the trouble, but pleasant enough.

But Focus knows a lot about riding. On this road in a rush not only when it is absolutely straight. Live feedback on the steering wheel seasoned accurate, without a shadow of hesitation, reactions. Close to neutral understeer provokes increase the tempo. The main thing — to consolidate the goods, he did not fly around the trunk. Live “the barn”, which is really nice to go on a “long haul”.

A test with a top Vesta 1.8‑liter 122‑horsepower engine paired with a manual transmission — the lady I got almost a hundred HP per ton. With a turbocharged Focus to compete meaningless, but the 130‑strong sid she’ll probably give me a light!

Not given. No matter how hard I squeezed all the juice out of the motor Vesta, to accelerate to hundreds in less than 12 seconds failed. I feel that the well-known 1.6‑liter engine carries not worse. Where did the “extra” Newton-meters and “horse”? Looks like they trampled the ragged nature of the motor. If the elasticity of the base unit you can enjoy infinite, more powerful engine such pleasure will not give in transient regimes and then felt failures in traction.

Kia is also not standard, but draft control is much nicer, aided though not the most agile but logical, 6-speed automatic.

The impression of the automatic Focus spoiled inconvenient manual mode, located at the end of the selector. But to touch the pedal a bit Ford — thanks to a-liter turbo engine. His head is brighter than the competition – available from the bottom of a deadlift much more impressive. From space Ford is gaining a hundred a little longer than nine seconds.

But for navigation “Cityguide” no questions.

What a very good brake! And efficiency level, and the information content of the drive. Kia is also not far behind, and Lada did not miss — because behind the machines with the motor 1.8 now employs disk mechanisms. Can’t say that to “drums” was some claim, but to control the deceleration was much more convenient. Domestic cars today is the best brake system.

The smoothness of Vesta against the background of some domestic models not the reference. But even in the trash broken asphalt on the road in ves’yegonsk Lada digest without the heartburn. Full range of road imperfections without a trace dissolves in the absorbers, leaving behind only a light, almost musical finish. In this case the car cannot be called noisy, because Vesta is especially well isolated from road noise. Aerodynamic noises is felt only at speeds over 120 km/h and the loudest about themselves says a motor. Well, even “cricket”, who lived in a completely new salon.

Focus and the CEE’d is quiet, because their interiors are tailored not only of hard plastic. The Focus motor is also wails on the high notes, but his timbre is pleasant hearing. Road noise is muted slightly worse than the Lada, but the overall background noise is much weaker. You can not say about Kia: “sandblasting” solo loud.

Can side just blindly dive into the abyss of dead roads? To a point Yes, but when the depth of pits becomes indecent, breakouts are increasingly shouting about the need to slow down. Ford has been tolerant, despite the 17‑inch wheels.

Ticket price

Largus is too utilitarian and even rude, and station wagons C-class noticeably more expensive.”Alexander Vinogradov: “SW Vesta is not cheap, but direct competitors it does not. Largus is too utilitarian and even rude, and station wagons C-class noticeably more expensive.”

So we got to the place. What is the universal manifested itself in a long journey?

Claims to close the back and problems with visibility did not prevent the Ford to win. He was the most friendly in the long journey. The car is the most expensive in the trio — the price is almost half million, but a quarter of this amount came in many expensive options that did not affect the result. The only serious benefit is the turbo which have no rivals, even in theory. But if we Focus with 125‑horsepower aspirated, it too would have won, albeit with a reduced margin.

The CEE’d took second place. Solid and beautiful wagon. At a reasonable price: the test car is 1 100 000. Other things being equal, he thousand fifty cheaper Focus. But if the behavior on the road for you the last sound, the choice in favor of “Koreans” is not obvious.

Lada is in third place with a slight lag. Time and a half if you consider the price difference and the fact that SW Vesta battled with station wagons is a class above, it is a defeat comparable with the victory.

WHERE NO TRAINS

If the city resident or a foreigner will want to know what the real Russian heartland, it is not necessary to go beyond the Urals. You can go to ves’yegonsk, a town on the outskirts of the Tver region.

Almost all the houses here are wooden, there is no centralized gas supply. In autumn and early spring the roads are covered with a thick layer of mud from unpaved road shoulders. This city on the shore of the Rybinsk reservoir is small and very rich. The condition of the roads in some places is just awful. Especially on the Northern border of the city, on the road in Ustyuzhna. Railway communication with Moscow and St. Petersburg for five years. And the local airfield, where he performed flight Tver and Cherepovets, long abandoned.

But the city was not always so. In the XVI-XIX centuries the Whole Egonskoy (then known as the village) was a major trading center, they were selling honey, furs, fish. Unfortunately, in the early 40‑ies of XX century, the city was almost completely flooded during the filling of the Rybinsk reservoir. All of the current buildings appeared later. One of the few reminders of the life of ves’yegonsk before the arrival of the big water, the ruins of the Kazan Cathedral on the shore.

The best seat — the Trick: perfectly contoured, not tiring on a long trip and moves in wide ranges. Is there an adjustment of a lumbar emphasis. The seat of Vesta is also well done and also shows off adjustable stop, but lateral support is not as pronounced. Chair Kia shortage of lateral support does not suffer, but the back is not contoured optimally. The management bodies of Sid and Focus parity: the first one is better the instrument panel, the second wheel. The wheel of Vesta is not so easy, devices read worse, annoying and inconvenient for the left leg. But the Frets better overview large mirrors and minimal dead zones. Blind spots in side a little more, and its mirror less. The worst visibility — Ford: a small mirror, a massive Foundation pillars.

Ride quality

The filigree handling — Focus. Reactions, feedback — all at altitude. Vesta early breaks from arc, and stress on its wheel is not so noble. But on the whole the car goes very well. CEE’d can not be called ideal. The force on the wheel is also sub-optimal by rapid rotation. And a sudden change to the strip there is a tendency to sharp disruption of the rear axle and a series of spurious oscillations. Dynamics of Kia expected good. But Fret a bit disappointing. Car specific power of 100 BHP per tonne it is not superior to less powerful version of the 1.6. Besides, not like the fragmentary character of the engine in transient regimes. The dynamic — Focus: turbo EcoBoost takes it away from competitors. The possibility of brake systems of all three cars are close.
