Lada XRAY Crossover - 2016

Like in the West, former Soviet states that define Eastern Europe have seen a shift buying patterns towards Crossovers (previously called SUVs). These new Crossovers are fundamentally passenger cars underneath, but take a tall-profile approach to providing occupant and luggage capacity.

Lada, a vehicle brand under Russian auto manufacturer AutoVAZ, has built the XRAY since late 2015. During 2016 AutoVAZ accepted a majority ownership by the Renault-Nissan combine (now the world’s third largest vehicle producer).

Lada, known for many years for solid, if uninspiring cars, also historically produced the highly competent Niva offroader.

Merlyn started off as a front engined Method Junior prototype constructed as a particular task by Selwyn Hayward. Selwyn then went on to style and sector the Mk2, generating 4 cars in overall, with two of them remaining transported out to the United states of america. This was then followed (unsurprisngly) by the Mk3. The Mk4 (shockingly) was developed as a two seater road auto, before the Mk5 reverted back again to the race auto ethos.
