Lada XRay

The crossover concept in same sentence with Mother Russia? It sounds impossible, but let find out the details!

Well, obviously it is not impossible, because AutoVAZ has a plan. The main plan is to begin a whole new era in the industry, accepting the fact that all from the West is not doom and gloom, as it was thought for many years. Except for Niva and Samara, everything else produced by the AutoVAZ in the former communist capital of the world is simply unusable. It is about time to show the world that they have their own values, so at the Moscow International Automobile Salon they presented a new shining star on the Russian auto sky and believe it or not - the star is not red.

This article is about the new Lada XRay Concept – Crossover, a modern line of which we are almost sure that for the initial development of the new design is used the curve follower, opposite of the rulers and the triangles used for all Russian cars so far. It is developed under Mr. Steve Mattin watchful eyes, the new head of department design and a former designer at Volvo and Mercedes-Benz.

The respected designer did not have to go in some of the research centers of the friendly KGB that would later take over the exposure draft, yet Lada was entirely designed in Italy, more precisely in Turin.

From this concept all Lada and Volga designs will be derived in the same way and under the supervision of the same designer. This indeed is something that we should get used to, because Beautiful Lada were not compound words that we used to hear in the past.

The entire car front end dominates by X-theme, which in fact symbolizes the direction in which the new Lada and Volga will proceed. The car front end alone is not enough for one car to be successful in the market, so he tried to define minor details such as chrome accessories and specially designed wheel arches. Finally we can conclude that the entire car with the overall appearance and the details, including the great interior is a total success.

Basically, this is what should we expect from Lada in near future. However, this is also quite unbelievable for us too, so you might rub your eyes, pinch yourself and ask yourself are you sleeping, but Lada is now out of the Cold War era and enters the first league.

The only mystery of the new Lada Crossover XRay was how the car will look. Looking through peepholes, it seems like the design that was presented as a concept sample is totally unmasked crossover that should be on sale during the next year.

In order to prepare us for the arrival of the new Lada XRay crossover, Lada released two studies. It is now known that the final look of the Lada crossover is very similar to the car they have been announcing for the last year. It only differs in smaller wheels and other small details.

The new Lada XRay which is generally based on Dacia Duster will now have front-wheel drive and manual transmission. However, the all-wheel drive and the automatic transmission that are borrowed from Dacia Duster will be optionally available. As we have mentioned before, Lada XRay technology is generally taken by Dacia, so the vehicles are equipped with 1.6 and 1.8-liter engines.
During the past 20 years we have seen so many extremely modern prototypes and futuristic lines in the Lada cars industry. At one point the Russian car manufacturer AvtoVAZ was focused on production of modern and futuristic Lada cars, but only to present them on the International Automobile Salons. Unfortunately, none of them met mass production.

It was technically, technologically and financially impossible to realize the idea at that point. We should probably say the same about this Lada Xray Concept, but by some sources this project will be successful and the model will meet a mass production

Everyone that saw the Lada Xray Concept on the Moscow International Automobile Salon agreed that it would be great if the car meets a mass production. There is no doubt that AutoVAZ can produce the car body, but the extravagant form of the interior is much more complicated. This means that it will be produced but in much simpler and cheaper form.

Sumary
