Lada XRAY Crossover – 2016

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.
