2012 Lada X-Ray Concept
If the utterly unreliable Ranger Rover can sell well then this will have no problems.
Being a mechanic myself i would never buy a Ranger Rover after seeing the epic list of faults they have had over the years, i would happily buy the Lada if i had a choice between the two.
Good looking car. One caveat would be that, given the build quality of Lada's of the past, this may be strictly on-road but since so many of them never venture far from the highway anyway, this would be an ideal SUV for the urban driver.
One huge problem, of course, will be the name. Lada doesn't have necessary class to suit some drivers. In the past they were bought by drivers whose budget was very limited and, even then, their cars were worth nothing after a few years.
If it's actually ever produced and actually comes to the UK, it may take a trick.
Shame that there are no dealers left here and those that sold them in the past have probably moved on to marques with a slightly better reputation.
they used to laugh at skoda ..... they dont now as they got bought by VW ...
they took cheep laybour and eastern european work ethic and matched it with west tecnology and now they out sell alot of western names ....
LADA could do the same a country screeming for jobs ... cheep laybour ....and a good work ethic
if they built this i would test drive one at least
Russia & Eastern Europe produced some great concepts in the past but lacked the ability to create a quality product. Previous Ladas had great wallet appeal, below average showroom appeal and little user appeal. Now if the product performs well & lasts it may have a chance.
On the other hand we still rarely see Dacias here even though their quality has increasd enormously in the last 10 years. Something to do with the cost of conversion to RHD making it uneconomic to pursue the UK market I think.
