CEO says changes of produces are there but it’s too early to talk about terms and specifications.

Lada Vesta Cross concept has been unveiled at the Moscow Off-road show. The design concept is aimed at gaining feedback from the customers.

Speaking to media at the show, AvtoVAZ CEO, Bo Andersson stated that while there is a chance of this crossover entering production, it’s too early to tell with certainty. The company haven’t released the technical specifications of the car yet.

Based on Lada Vesta sedan which is set to go on sale in Russia later this year, Cross concept bearsĀ a strong resemblance to its three-box sibling, starting from the front bumper all the way up to B-pillar post which it gets a bigger rear quarter glass panel and a tapering tailgate. Angular wraparound combination lights and hexagonal license plate enclosure go well with rest of the design.

Lada Vesta Cross Concept borrows the dashboard from its sedan sibling.

The jacked up ride height, black roof, bigger alloy wheels, silver rear diffuser and black lower body plastic cladding further enhance the crossover concept’s visual appeal. The signature ‘X’ motifs on the front fascia and side sheet metal have been retained.

Lada Vesta Cross concept demonstrates the new modern product family’s ability to churn out market relevant derivatives. With the Russian auto market slowing down, it’s imperative for the native automaker to come up affordable and attractive new models. Vesta family has a lot riding on it.
