OREANDA-NEWS. Lada Priora in February of 2016 should come back on the conveyor of AvtoVAZ by going to ultra-budgetary segment of cars. According to the portal "Russian car", it is planned to produce this model 1.5-2 years. Therewith, AvtoVAZ refused facelift of Priora in the corporate X-style, which will concern the entire model range.

According to "Rossiyskaya Gazeta", ultra-budgetary Lada Priora will receive 8-valve engine VAZ 21186 1.6 liter with a capacity of 87 hp, upgraded to meet Euro 5 standards. Now under the bonnet we can see a 106-strong 16-valve engine. It is expected that Priora will receive one airbag, electric power steering and anti-lock braking system ABS, the presence of which in 2016 is regulated by law.

AvtoVAZ will save on interior decoration, by using the most simple and cheap fabric and plastic, as well as noise insulation - it will be "at a minimum". The vehicle will not have air conditioner. All this will help to keep the price within 5 thousand euro. That is, the car will be able to enter the top-10 of the most affordable models in the Russian market.

As it was reported previously, the possible transfer of Priora to the segment of cheap cars is connected with the desire to keep a popular model that in the top versions can make unnecessary competition for Lada Vesta. Now Priora sedan is sold at the price from 435 thousand to 533 thousand rubles, the new car - from 514 thousand to 677 thousand rubles.

As "AUTOSTAT” reported previously, LADA Priora, the production of which is currently stopped, by the results of November entered the "top-ten" of Russian bestsellers, by becoming the third most popular model of AvtoVAZ after Granta and Largus. Last month Priora was chosen by 2,678 customers, which is less by 32.6% than a year ago.
