An interesting prototype of a long wheelbase Lada Vesta has been spotted in Russia
An interesting prototype of a long wheelbase Lada Vesta has been spotted in Russia.
Tentatively called the Vesta VIP, the car is longer than the standard model by 25 cm measuring 4.4 meters long. The added length seems to be providing additional legroom for the rear passengers, judging by the longer rear doors. We also noticed a set of new 17-inch two-tone multi-spoke alloy wheels.
No other details about the vehicle are currently available, but Russian media is reporting that it probably won’t be offered to regular customers and will be produced in a highly limited production run.
AvtoVAZ president Bo Andersson commented he was surprised by his engineers who made the car without informing anyone.
The standard Vesta will go on sale in three versions – Classic, Comfort and Suite, with two naturally aspirated petrol engines – 1.6 and 1.8 with power ranging from 106 PS (78 kW) to 122 PS (90 kW). The standard equipment for the sedan includes two front airbags, power steering, ABS, ESP, etc. Higher-end models will have an automatic gearbox, 4.3-inch touchscreen display, electric mirrors and windows, steering wheel mounted audio controls and cruise control.
