Factory “AvtoVAZ” since January, 18th, 2010 has started release of new, limited version of model Lada Priora – Lada Priora Coupe. For January it is planned to exhaust about 60 new Priora in a coupe variant. Further also it is planned not to put the Coupe on a stream.
The company positions new Ladu Priora Coupe as «a three-door hatchback, ideal for fans of active style of driving and for all who wishes to go by the rare and non-standard car».
As it is informed in the press release, AvtoVAZ has seriously approached to new Priora of the Coupe: specially for it it has been developed one and a half hundreds new knots and details, among which details of a body shell, doors, a roof, lateral glasses, various decorative mouldings on a body, wheel disks, rear fenders, an interior upholstery. Backs of front armchairs, as well as in the majority of a coupe, collapsible, and the framework of seats is strengthened.
Even prior to the beginning of release of the limited party of Lada Priora Coupe has received all necessary certified tests and some krash-tests which (so assures AvtoVAZ) have shown that new Priora of the Coupe with interest carries out all specifications existing for a car of such class in the Russian Federation.
The Lada Priora Coupe is issued in trial manufacture of AvtoVAZ where “predecessor” of a novelty – 3-doors car on the basis of model LADA 112 earlier was issued. From predecessor Priora Coupe distinguishes more comfortable interior, the powerful motor, wider set of options.
The limited series, by the way, assumes a quite good stuffing for the Russian driver already in a base complete set. To tell the truth, in new Lada Priora Cuope the “base” set inspires respect for the Russian car – here and the air conditioner, and Parktronic, both ABS, and pillows of safety of the driver and the passenger. And still – front seat belts with the gear of a pretension and effort restriction, heating up of seats, the signalling with the central lock and an immobilizer, electric window regulators and as write in release, “many other things”.
AvtoVAZ recommends to sell Lada Priora Coupe’s car for 375 thousand roubles.
The well-known “tenth” family of the Volga car factory has died. Sedans and hatchbacks do not let out for a long time already, and recently the conveyor was left also by the “eleventh” versatile person. But to fans of “sheds” it is not necessary to worry – “AvtoVaz”, at last, has begun manufacture of versatile person Lada Priora.
What represents the new car which, by the way, is the most expensive serial model Lada? “Muzzle” of this car differs nothing from sedan or a hatchback which are already well familiar to us. And here a back part here it is perfect another.
When representatives “AvtoVaz” have told two years ago that they wish to make Priora in a body the versatile person this news has not caused rough delight. Especially at those who appreciates in the car not only its practical possibilities, but also beauty. After all the versatile person on the basis of “ten” did not differ refined forms. It was “shed”. The new versatile person too not sparkling grace, but it looks much more interesting! Put nearby Priora and Lada-111 and all of you will understand. Thanks to the window line lifted up upwards, other wings and a bumper, and also absolutely new lanterns which are located directly on a body, Priora any more does not cast suicide thoughts. It is terrible to tell, but designers Lada especially are to be abused no at all! Unless old «tens» doors spoil rather balanced appearance of the car a little. And that these doors have undergone to little changes – they have received new handles of doors under «the natural successful fellow».
The luggage space has turned out big on volume, and to load things there simply enough – at desire back armchairs it is possible to combine, thanks to what the decent platform with an equal floor (there it is possible even to sleep) is formed. There are also some pleasant trifles which we, to admit, did not expect to see on versatile person Lada Priora. So, in a luggage carrier here is a lot of special скоб thanks to which it is possible крепить load. Besides, on tested cars there was even a special fixing grid, as on good foreign cars! This simple novelty has caused weight of disputes among journalists – all guessed, the grid enters into complete set Priora or not? And here that has appeared. Now the grid all the same does not enter into equipment Priora. However it will soon put on cars in a complete set “lux”. And if the buyer takes the car in the simple version it can order a grid for an additional payment. And, there will be a choice possibility – will be as a “small” grid with four carbines, so “big”.
Back armchairs develop as it is necessary – is remembered on hatchback Priora which has appeared on sale last year, with it there were huge problems. Latches then rose with such work that it was possible to break fingers. On the versatile person the mechanism of fixing of armchairs remained without changes, however, «doodah» here function with hardly any trouble at all. According to founders Priora, no sorcery here is present – simply on the first hatchbacks which have got to journalists on the test, the mechanism has been badly adjusted.
Besides, already in second half of this year on the versatile person there will be absolutely new mechanism of folding of back armchairs where it will not be necessary to lift clamps any more. Will enough press the special button and to combine seats. And still it is necessary to notice that Priora the versatile person in the version “lux” will soon receive a new shelf of a luggage carrier – it can be wound on a drum. Already now cars have dredging necessary for it!
It is pleasant that all versatile persons, even in a base complete set, have rayling. And, at once with three fastenings on a roof. Last moment is important – on old “eleventh” versatile persons put рейлинги with two fastenings which at loading often broke. Now, according to founders of the car, they became much stronger and without problems maintain cargo in 50 kg (in Tolyatti especially are proud of that all stamps for new basket car elements have been made in Japan).
And still that the driver has at once three ways of opening of a back door was pleasant. It can take advantage of the standard ignition key, can press a button on an alarm system charm, and can involve function of remote opening of a luggage carrier from salon.
Well and now about the most favourite. About lacks Lada. They, certainly, are present. It is possible to carry still not ideally working mechanism of switching of speeds to car minuses. Complaints to it were even in the spring of 2007 when on sale there were first sedans Priora. Then speeds in 5-step “mechanics” were switched indistinctly (and at times they and at all “did not wish” to join from the first), vibration on the lever were too big, and at attempt to cut back the hand ran into a driver’s armchair. After two years of basic changes in the mechanism and has not occurred. But nevertheless we will notice that speeds began to join hardly more accurately, and vibrations on a side scene have decreased. Also there is a hope that soon situation with a box will improve cardinally – project head Lada Priora Vitaly Kozenkov has promised to us that in the near future there will be absolutely new mechanism of switching of speeds.
In the same list of lacks it is necessary to carry and old armchairs with absent lateral support in which people with a sick back feel not in the best way. Though nevertheless these seats it is hardly better, than sedans Priora of the sample of 2007 – at them had more appreciable zone support though thus about any adjustment here speeches do not go. Well and certainly we will tell about far not ideally adjusted elements of salon and windshields which fall not completely.
As well as it was supposed, in movement the versatile person anything basic does not differ from a sedan or a hatchback. Yes, of course, here not such rigidity of a body as on the same 5-door hatchback, and in intense turns it is felt. But thus about any laxity of speech does not go. After all the versatile person has received the additional amplifier under a roof thanks to what it became much stronger, than its predecessor. Unless visibility back in new model became worse (in many respects at the expense of other back racks and the headrests established on the second row of seats). Therefore unpretentious парктроник which put on the version “lux”, on the versatile person any more luxury, and safety means.
And here the engine here same (1,6 l, 98 h.p.). 98 “horsies” to modern measures not and are a lot of, but it is quite enough for the overwhelming majority of buyers Priora of it.
Wish to know, how many there is a new versatile person? This information is already accessible – the car in a base complete set “norm” have estimated in 313 912 rbl. “Lux” with ABS, two pillows of safety, parktronik, an electropackage, the conditioner, system of automatic inclusion of “yard keepers” and headlights “lux” will manage already in 357 107 rbl. And will cost the car in the version a radio tape recorder 362 000 rbl.
AVTOVAZ and firm Ricardo in Great Britain, have begun teamwork on designing and operational development of the perspective motor in volume of 1,8 litres. As informs AVTOVAZ press-serving, in the new engine for the first time in practice of the Russian motorcar giant the gear of changeable phases of a gas distribution will be applied. It will allow to optimise motor work in various modes and will promote drop of fuel consumption and toxicity of exhaust gases. Within the limits of the concluded contract firm Ricardo will assist experts of AVTOVAZ in working out of a head of the cylinder block for the new engine and in motor calibration. The contract with Ricardo is calculated for two years. With the new engine it is planned to equip cars on the unified platform of a class “C” and family LADA PRIORA cars.
LADA Priora Despite original bumpers and light engineering, in a silhouette of “Priora” lines of the predecessor – “Lada-110″ are guessed. But in the car more than thousand new details that, you see, many for restyling or face lifting. All body is cut out anew, even facings of doors, apparently, the same, as at “ten”, are updated – for reduction of backlashes … LADA Priora Appearance of “Priora” – not last sigh of an automobile fashion, but “ten” nevertheless is more modern: slanting headlights (by the way, them dispersive – from polycarbonate which is much stronger some glass) and an elegant lattice of a radiator with a large emblem. Has left in the past “zilovsky” a cowl. Now it, as on the majority of cars, habitually keeps within between wings. Backlashes between body elements have decreased twice, and interfaces a bumper – a wing – a headlight (lantern) as if are drawn now. That glasses of doors remained pure, along the edges of a windscreen have provided the rubber reflectors which are taking away splashes on a roof. A frame of back deaf “window leaf” now from metal. It is less than details – manufacturing is easier, and it is more reliable – how many former overlays in movement simply blew off air pressure!
LADA Priora Back lanterns have entirely moved to wings, on a luggage carrier cover only licence plate with an overlay covering lanterns of illumination. LADA Priora the line of a back arch is raised, and the wheel is completely opened now. From hidden to an eye I will note the changed longerons, the strengthened thresholds, bokoviny and doors. All it has allowed to improve passive safety. 29 % of a surface of a body are zinced, and settlement firmness from through corrosion – 6 years. Work of door-locks became easier, have appeared a latch ljuchka a petrol tank and a stopper on a leash. Earlier such trifles on VAZ did not favour. LADA Priora the luggage carrier aperture hardly became wider. A cowl considerably potjazhelel. And business not only that it is covered by thicker noise isolation: now instead of two gas emphasis – one folding. So, speak, more cheaply. Perhaps it is necessary to open less often? In the PURSUIT OF EURO of 16 valve the 1,6-litre engine with an index 21126 outwardly differs nothing from 21124. However in the motor many new decisions. The main thing – the shatunno-piston group became easier. Details – import, from Federal Mogul. Compression degree has increased to 11 units. Capacity of the modernised motor of 98 h.p., and it keeps within in III. ventilation kartera Is finished: the oil separator volume is increased approximately by 50 % that has considerably lowered the expense of oil on charcoal fumes. A belt, pulleys, rollers and a semiautomatic device of a tension of belt GRM – too import, with a guarantee hodimosti 200 thousand in km.
In a transmission of “Priora” the closed bearings and more effective synchronizers, the mechanism of a choice of transfers is strengthened. Coupling the mechanism of automatic indemnification of an extract of a cable and deterioration of a conducted disk too is strengthened, entered. CHANGE of SCENERY LADA Priora the Panel of devices with the routeing computer is modern and informative enough. In an interior from “ten” there were only seats. LADA Priora in an average part of the panel – a double nest for “music”. In the same place a place for any trifle. Below – three rotary handles of management of a heater. Distribution of air streams the round handle knows, and zaslonki moves a motor-reducer. In left “corner” the block of management was attached by light. Here the rotary handle of external illumination and two regulators – illuminations of devices and the electroproof-reader of headlights are grouped. LADA Priora in a steering wheel the 60-litre pillow of safety is hidden. (The passenger – it is visible, less valuable crewman, for it the pillow in a base complete set is not provided.) and on a ceiling there was a place and for ochechnika. LADA Priora the updated engine reminds GAS to character 1.5 litre 16 valve, waking up after 3500–4000 rpm. The terminator works on 6200, but to the motor, apparently, such mode not in burden. A steering thanks to the electroamplifier a lung, but only on small speeds. Perhaps, even unduly easy. However, since the speed of 80 km/h, a steering-wheel it is smoothly poured by informative weight, and at achievement of hundred help of the amplifier and at all vanishes. On road “Priora” it is appreciable sobrannee “tens” – a merit of the changed characteristics of a suspension bracket and occurrence in a back suspension bracket of the stabilizer of cross-section stability. Has as a result disappeared valjazhnost, lists in turns have considerably decreased. On 70 km/h I pull a wheel, simulating the rerate, and … pleasantly I am surprised.« Priora »behaves let and not ideally, but nevertheless it is better than the predecessor though small propensity to drift is. Brakes are much more effective than”tenth”, thus effort to pedals on-inomarochnomu small – thanks the new main cylinder and the 9-inch vacuum amplifier. In fast turns the wheel, apparently,”became shorter”. But it only subjective sensation – from an emphasis against the stop here the same almost four turns. On modern foreign cars such not to meet.
So, “Priora” – a new mark on a way of domestic car industry? Hardly. More likely, result of the correction of mistakes, revealed at “ten”, attempt to be kept in the niche of the market at active approach on all front of leaders of a world autostructure. However the main component of success – the best parity the price-quality. And traditional quality of cars of VAZ hardly can be carried to competitive advantages. In a technical part of break too it is not visible – ABS both was not, and is not present, and a unique pillow of safety in base – yesterday. There is last trump – the price. Despite similarity with “ten”, “Priora” is more modern. But in relation to competitors-foreign cars it defends more likely, than attacks. However, defence – the best way to exhaust the opponent. SAFETY? It is handed over! Bumpers reliably protect the car at a parking, absorbing energy of blow about a motionless obstacle in speed to 5 km/h without deformation of other details of a body. “Priora” corresponds to modern requirements on passive safety at face-to-face blow with displacement and lateral arrival (rules R94 and R95 EEK the United Nations). At blow by technique EuroNCAP of “Priora”, on estimations, types three stars. Also actions in calculation are thought already over to earn four. To protection of the driver and passengers serve not only a pillow and belts (for forward armchairs with a preliminary tension), but also strengthened a board front, thresholds and lateral racks, and also door bars. In upholsteries of doors the inserts, called to disperse local loadings on a body of the person in contact zones are provided. The soft overlay over the panel of devices will help to save the forward passenger from traumas at collisions on small speeds. The bottom parts of a casing of a steering column and the panel of devices are supplied by power absorbing inserts that knees of the driver have not suffered from blow about a steering shaft and the block of pedals.
LADA Priora designers of AUTOVAZ develop special colour scale For cars of family LADA PRIORA. If the flop-effect for LADA PRIORA the new pigment ksiralik will be already used more often is applied to colouring LADA KALINA. If the sun is not present, enamel with such pigment looks one-colour. But when on a surface the ray of light gets, particles of other colour or even the whole mix of several shades inside start to sparkle. This fantastic effect also will be shown in colouring of cars LADA PRIORA. For February two new colours – “space” and «a star dust» are already planned. Dealers of AUTOVAZ will start to receive cars LADA Priora in April. The marketing service of AUTOVAZ will prepare a number of celebratory actions for this time. They will be devoted an exit on the market new vazovskoj to model. According to the head of department of marketing of AUTOVAZ Alexander Bredihina, sedan LADA Priora, after the assemblage beginning, within 2-3 months, completely will replace on the main conveyor of AUTOVAZ sedan LADA 110. A hatch-back and the versatile person while will be issued in a former body. In total it is till the end of the year planned to let out an order of 84 thousand sedans LADA Priora. According to Alexander Bredihina, the price for new model will be comparable to current cost LADA 110, but taking into account the additional equipment which already in a base complete set enters into new model, for example the pillow of safety of the driver and is a lot of another. For today the recommended price of factory of 280 260 roubles. The January plan of welding of bodies for LADA PRIORA makes 84 pieces. Four bodies – for prototypes, the others will go for assemblage of commodity cars. In a New Year’s vacation works on modernisation of the welding equipment in manufacture of bodies of cars LADA have been spent. In particular, forces of experts of factory put into operation the multidot welding car necessary for welding of bodies with unified system of release of fulfilled gases for LADA PRIORA and cars of the “tenth” family. Now on the main conveyor of AUTOVAZ already there are unified bodies.
In December, 2008 of Open Society “AUTOVAZ” has made the first pilot lot of cars of family LADA PRIORA with a body “versatile person”, it is informed today in the company press release. Versatile person LADA PRIORA distinguish about 200 original details. In particular, in this car the new panel of a roof, back wings, a back folding door, glasses боковин, back lanterns and a bumper are applied. Assemblage of pilot versatile persons LADA PRIORA is carried out in the conditions of the main conveyor of AUTOVAZ that allows to fulfil technological process operatively. Further cars will go on bench and road tests in which course reliability and consumer qualities of new model will be estimated. Also on pilot versatile persons perspective options, in particular, the integrated audiosystem which will be a part of separate complete sets LADA PRIORA 2009 will be fulfilled.
