Russia’s Lada Vesta SW And Vesta SW Cross Arrive In Europe, Pricing Starts At €11,990

AvtoVAZ is expanding its operations in Europe by launching two additional Lada models in certain markets.

The Vesta SW and Vesta SW Cross have already landed in Germany, Austria and Hungary, and will launch in Slovakia, Serbia and Bulgaria by the end of April.

Joining the Lada Vesta Sedan, the two estate derivatives are available in two trim levels, Comfort and Luxe. The automaker has yet to release full details about them, but pricing starts from €11,990, or $14,673 at the current exchange rates.

In comparison, the base Dacia Logan MCV starts at €7,990 ($9,778) in Germany, with a 75PS (74hp / 55kW) petrol engine. The Logan MCV Stepway can be had from €12,300 ($15,053), with a 90PS (89hp / 66kW) unit.

Europeans looking at the two Vesta SW models will have to settle for a 1.6-liter petrol engine. It meets the Euro 6 emission standards, generates 106PS (105hp / 78kW) and 148Nm (109lb-ft) of torque and works together with a 5-speed manual transmission.

With a dry weight of 1,280kg (2,822lbs), the Lada Vesta SW needs 12.4 seconds to hit 100km/h (62mph) from a standstill and can reach a top speed of 174km/h (108mph). The Vesta SW Cross is 0.2sec slower to 100km/h (62mph) and maxes out at 172km/h (107mph). The average fuel consumption is 7.3 l/100 km (32.2 US mpg / 38.7 UK mpg) and 7.5 l/100 km (31.4 US mpg / 37.7 UK mpg), respectively.

In Russia, customers can also order the 1.8-liter unit, with 122PS (120hp / 90kW) and 170Nm (125lb-ft) of torque, which is mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission.

The only differences between the two Vesta SWs are the plastic cladding and jacked-up suspension added to the Cross, and some trim revisions inside.

    Love that these is a separate USB port -for mobile charging- at the back seat. I mean for this kind of a car.

  • Matt

    That dashboard is very Jeep.

    • Mr_Fanta_Pants

      The interior is more previous generation Fiesta.

      • ZYGIUS

        No interior is Russian self design, all mechanical components is identical to Dacia, engineering by Renault. Renault owns Lada and uses Dacia parts and underprints to create new Ladas models

        • Mr_Fanta_Pants

          I mean the style. It looks almost the same as the previous generation Fiesta, except this has a nicer screen.

          Just say how much of foreign-made components in Lada Vesta.. Actually, Vesta is build on Lada’s own platform having almost nothing to do with Renaut. The X-Ray is built on Renaut platform.

  • Would be interesting to see it compare to other budget cars in the market.

  • ZYGIUS

    New Duster starts from 9999€, who will buy this russian made disaster …

  • Nobody is going to buy these. Even China produces way better cars now than Russia. No wonder their economy is smaller than of Italy. Spending money on military and yachts does not pay off long term…

    • ZYGIUS

      Russians buys Russian cars, because president was said they’re best😃

    • Marty

      Yes, Russians will buy Russian cars.
      Russian companies don’t seem to be able to produce consumer products that are good enough to attract foreign customers. It’s a country of natural resources.

      • Zaichusha

        Russia now exports more of a non-military and non-gas-oil products. You rely on BBC World News and this is the problem.

        • McFly

          That’s good!
          But you make an oddly specific (and false) assumption of what I rely on. I only have to look around me to know how extremely under-represented Russian consumer products are on the international market. For such a enormous industrialized nation, the inability to create desired consumer products is notable.

          I can promise you that most Europeans own more products from puny single digit million countries like Denmark or Switzerland than from great Mother Russia (with 144,5 million people).

          I just find that strange.

      • Zaichusha

        You know, I can’t write too much here but just a few recent facts. Kaliningrad factory Grunwald exports truck trailers to Latvia. Тransmashholding just bought a “DCD Rolling Stock” machine plant in South Africa and will make railroad cars and other related machinery. RusAl owns several major aluminum making plants all around the world. First delivery of mechanical supports for reactor ITER was deliverd to France from St. Petersburg last month. Total export of pharmaceutical products increased 8.3% in 2018 and reached $792 million. The home cleaning supplies export increased 2.3% in 2018 and reached 298000 tons. Russia exports reserve diesel-generators to Iran. The new mid-range plane MC-21 has not even entered into production phase but out of 279 orders 30 are from foreign countries. LEDVANCE is a world leader in special lighting products and exports into 140 countries. And I am not mentioning gas/oil and military. I know this is not something you see in your local store. But the new developments are promising. And, again you will never ever learn this from BBC.
