Budget Russian car maker Lada has previewed its new family of compact cars, unveiling a trio of concepts at the Moscow motor show overnight.
Front and centre on Lada’s stand is the sub-compact X-Ray SUV, compact Vesta sedan, and a World Touring Car Championship version of the Vesta.
The third of the trio will be the first to arrive, with the low-slung, wide-body model set to go racing in next year’s WTCC.
It will be followed in September 2015 by the production version of the Vesta – a 4.4-metre rival for the likes of the Honda City. It’s based on a new modular platform that’s set to underpin a number of different variants and other models.
The X-Ray will launch in early-2016, with a family of related variants also expected to follow. The crossover model is said to share much with the Dacia Sandero Stepway beneath its body.
The Lada Vesta and X-Ray will be sold exclusively in Russia.
