New Lada

new lada 2107 1

The car on the pic above is the old Russian LADA 2107. It was in production since 70s, until late 90s. When it was taken off from the production many Russian people thought that finally they got rid of it. But here is a surprise from Russia car manufacturer. New Lada 2107.

  1. Lada Riva FTW!

    A friend of mine’s family had a Riva many years ago and it was a great car according to them. They apprently hit about 115mph in it one time!

  2. Looks like all they’ve done to the outside is just chopped the front off and uglified it.

    I’d love to have a car that looks like a Lada; just as long as it doesn’t behave as one.

  3. i like lada 😛

    dunno about the shown model here but here are some phots from other new lada kalina:

    for me it looks like a typically opel and it seems it gets also a opel engine:

  4. Oh my god! Is it finally 2.0 DOHC Turbo AWD ABS TRC, may options inside? So ugly…….. Looks like from 80’s
    When someone will buy this manufacture and demolish facility, all people around will be happy with Audi, Mercedes, Skoda, VW, BMW, Toyota, Nissan, Infiniti, Subaru, Mazda and other Cars!

  5. It needs some wheel covers. Russians must not like hub caps because they seem to be missing them on many cars featured on this site.

  6. Sarcasm. Even in this time when other car manufacturers makes similar bolides like spaceships, russian cars still uses 35 year old shell.
    No secret, but I still have VAZ-2103 made in 1974. And I can strongly say that my car is some kind of classic or retro.
    By representing Lithuanian lada club “LADAKLUBAS” [http://www.ladaklubas.lt], I affirm to a very bad step of Russian car step for future.

  7. Why all the hate?
    From the picture, this new Lada is based on the old body shell with new sheet metal on the front and rear. That means they’re using tooling that’s already *paid for*, they can get this car to market *much* cheaper than an all new model, that means they can sell it for a profit at a much smaller price and volume.
    This car is entry-level basic transportation, period.
    If you were a first time car buyer and had a choice of spending your hard earned Rubles on a brand new car with a factory warranty or some used POS that had been dealing with Russian roads for however many years you might be tempted, especially when you see large numbers of the original version still in use after years of abuse 🙂

  8. Hey people I live here and I vant to say LADA will no do this car ! Better look here http://priora.lada-auto.ru/priora.html

  9. TO THOSE RESPONSIBLE AT AO AvtoVAZ

    Right, sad to say. The original – presentable Italian design when new – truly had some charm. And wasn’t as small as some tend to moan – today, there’s Suzukis, Minis, Micras, Ka-cars, … all such limited space needs is intelligent seat shaping to make it comfortable for taller, longer-legged folks, and to grant passangers not to roll to the side when passing narrow curves fast.

    It was simply essential, sort of a humble, but at the same time almost somewhat elegant parody of what little kids from the 1950s on tended to draw as edgy right-angled standard passenger car shape.

    A renewed – or reminding – car of that type should either use current inspirations. But perhaps quite courageously, watching the development of realistic, yet not too common lines in concept car designs.

    Or it should be a subtle, truly dignified – and even improved(!) – redesign. Not just a short-lived past re-invention, like the (though somewhat pretty) Nissan Figaro or the nice ’round 2000 retro Thunderbird. But really inspired to last, like the Mustang, Charger or Camaro concepts, or the reborn Volkswagen Beetle. Or the Mini.

    And avoid those optically heavy outside-diaper-like black aprons – that’s like sending sunnyboy out to a bmx bicycle competition, on dad’s 1970s folding bike, with training wheels added, the only guarantee even all the adults will laugh at him.

    There’s obviously been done almost nothing to the passenger section, except replacing the rest of chrome (been reduced by and by during 25 years) with black rubber or polysomething, and adding (dia-per, dia-per!) protection strips to the doors. The face has been, like Robert stated, just uglified. only the upper part of the rear shows a tiny little bit of what might be something that one day can grow to sort of a slightly strange but almost special idea.

    So, wipe off all the miscarried changes, take this little attempt, breed and feed or fertilize and water it, or start completely new (with the 1970s Fiat/Lada, or with an independent idea) – and afford a really good designer. Consider: this is, except years ago, some luxury sports concept car attempt with Mercedes-Benz (of no meaning for mass production), the very first step of a Russian car’s exterior into the 21st century, years after even China has arrived here.

    If you just let it happen the way the pics show, history books will remember an embarassingly ugly flop.

    But if you invest some wit, creativity and even money (modernistic or retro – THAT is still your choice and of little matter for the success), photos of the resulting new Lada on Red Square may become a (the very?) new global cult symbol of design.

  10. i think that the disgner did not understod the facts of the body the fiber is not comptentable with body thats is the problem lada 2107 outside shape could be easy changed but not that awful but some changes can make the car looks better

  12. Iam from malta i have a lada samara 1995 the car is very good esp in road holding and fuel coms no trabel at all .
    the new lada C is the top if it comes to malta i buy it

  13. I don’t know why the author said it was in production until 1990s, because 2107 is still in production in 2009! VAZ makes it along with newer models like Kalina and Priora. For example, here’s the pricelist of one of the official dealers: http://www.eleks.ru/lada/
    As of 2009.03.01, the 2107 costs 161500 Rub which is about $4500. They still make it because it’s popular, and the price is the main and probably only cause of this popularity. Still, many people including me prefer used European cars which in many cases are even cheaper despite ridiculously high import duties here in Russia.

  14. I’ve always liked the Lada 2105/7 type models.I never got to drive one because I live in Toronto Canada and they haven’t sold those here for many years. I was quite young when they were around, too young to drive. Also they were not very popular here because of political reasons. The TV and the newspapers always depicted Russia as the enemy. Remember Ronald Reagan U.S. president declared Russia an “EVIL EMPIRE”, well Canada usually just follows the USA anyway and if people saw you driving a Lada they frowned at you.
    I wonder if they could try selling them here again. Sooner or later people are going to need a cheap car once again as the economy gets worse, and GM may disappear some day. If they make them to be OBD2 compliant and they meet our pollution restrictions, I don’t see why not. the price is cheap and some of you say they’re tough as hell.
    Also I think I found the website:
    http://www.lada-auto.ru/cgi-bin/models.pl?model_id=4935&branch=tth

    • They sold new ladas (in alberta at least) as late as 97/98. I think they quit selling 2107 (“signet” here) earlier, and it was only Niva available. But they quit selling it due to emissions or crash saftey or somesuch…

  15. I suppose that the new version had fuel injection at least, truth is said, it’s not a terrible car, now the chinese made some worse ones.

  16. The Lada 2105 is one of the best cars I have driven, it was my first car with a Fiat Mirafiori 1600 engine conversion, I learned how to slalom and race in that car, it protected me from many “learning” impacts on other cars, walls etc. it survived and so did I, had it been another car I think I would not be here writing this.

    LADA POWER

  17. I have a lada 2107. It is best car. but in Iran there isn’t tools for it.pleae help me to find tools .I wait for your mail.

    Thank you

  18. This restyling is connected with the purchase of shares by Renault. Frankly, it’s the composition of Renault Logan, which is quite popular in Russia now, and VAZ-2107. Whate’er, as far as I know, this project has been dead already. Anyway, some of LADA cars are not so bad. We have a Lada 2112 and it’s quite ok.

  19. Soy de Colombia, tengo un 2106-1994, me gusta este automovil por lo sencillo de la mecanica. Igual presta el mismo servicio que un auto de alta gama.
    Me gustaria conocer la mecanica de este nuevo modelo, motor, caja de cambios etc.

  20. lada have a monster – “Nadezhda” (“hope”). russian has a proverb – Hope dies last. I’m ashamed of my country =,(

  21. Do not blame LADA or any Russian car . They last long and are very useful ones. Im Mozambican and even now Im driving a 28 years old LADA 2107. My LADA 2107 is the unique you can see in Maputo rodas.They many people wanting to by my LADA . It would be a great God bless to me if anyone from anywhere realise to offer me spare parts of it or used lada or Niva .Roberto Dimande-Maputo 2012! Cheers !!!
