Анонсированная ранее "вседорожная" версия Frets XRay, точнее, проект по ее реализации, похоже временно застопорился. У нас любят что-то обещать намного раньше, чем проверят свои возможности. В этом смысле история с Lada XRay Cross is quite typical for the Russian car market. At the Moscow International Automobile Salon, which will be held at the end of the summer of this year, the cross-version Frets XRay previously promised to show. But today nothing intelligible on this issue can be found out. A list of cars that will participate in this auto show is being established, and so far there is no VAZ cross-version of the “high hatchback”. In early April, as you know, the VAZ leadership changed. Therefore, a unique decision of fate Frets XRay Cross directly depends on how the new president of the auto giant, Nicolas Mora, looks at this. But he seems to be closer to the resuscitation of the legendary "penny": information about this leaked to the Web. If a high-ranking Frenchman of VAZ decides to continue the development of the project Lada Xray Crossthen we will most likely see a body reinforced with protective lining along the entire perimeter, roof rails, and, of course, four-wheel drive.
This is exactly the concept кроссовой версии XRay on images published at the end of 2015.
As for the all-wheel drive, which, in the case of continuing work, will be transferred Lada XRay Crosshere only two options are considered. One is the development of VAZ Kulibins, the second is borrowing from the Renault-Nissan arsenal. Most likely, they will be inclined to the last option, because why reinvent the wheel when there are ready-made modular solutions that need only be adapted for a specific car.
But we still have the words of the project manager. Cross Lada XRay that the four-wheel drive at this stage is not yet primary, now we must do everything possible so that the front-wheel drive version in all its trim levels, as they say, has taken root in the Russian market. Massively sell lada xray started just nine days ago, and the price tags on the car start with 590 thousand wooden. For stocks and special offers, you can save a little: recycling and trade-in are available for the entire VAZ line.
Under the hood XRay install several motors. This is a 1.6-liter 106-horsepower, paired with a manual transmission, of the same volume, with manual transmission, but already 110 “horses” and the most powerful 1.8-liter 122-horsepower with a robotized (AMT) transmission.
A few days ago Lada Xray began to export and Belarusians.
