The TagAZ Aquila has entered production phase and will arrive in showrooms very soon.

The Russian four-door coupe is already available for order and has received so far more than a thousand reserves. At first it will be offered exclusively with a 1.6-liter 16v engine producing 107 HP (79 kW) connected to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Later on it will also be available with 150 HP (110 kW) and maybe an automatic transmission.

It has a starting price of 415,000 rubles (about 10,625 EUR / 14,000 USD / 8,900 GBP) and comes as standard with ABS, power steering, air conditioning, front airbags, sound system and electric parking brake. The car won't be sold beyond Russia and nearby countries because if they would want to sell it in Western Europe they would have to make in-depth modifications and add more safety equipment which would make it pricier and less desirable than the competition.
