In Russia LadaGranta remains the best-selling domestic car, a position it has held for 14 consecutive months.
The Russian consumer has 16 LadaGranta models to choose from, ranging from a standard model starting at 279,000 rubles to a luxury model for 382,000 rubles. The LadaGranta is the first Russian car equipped with automatic transmission, a 4-speed system produced by the Japanese company Jatco.
The luxury model includes front airbags, fog lights, an alarm security system, ABS and BAS, all powered doors, electric and heated exterior mirrors, a heated windshield, parking sensors, a rain sensor, and other features.
