The model should be presented next year
The Lada Iskra will receive two body types, on the basis of which three modifications will be created, as reported by the “Russian Cars” public page on the VKontakte social network.
“There will be no station wagon in the Lada Iskra (XJO) range – the two-volume version of the model is designated as a hatchback in the internal factory documentation,” writes the Russian Automobiles public page.
Lada Iskra will receive three body versions:
- LJO – sedan;
- BJO – hatchback;
- BJO Cross is a cross hatchback.
The hatchback provides a shorter rear overhang than the sedan and station wagon. The cross-hatchback should be distinguished by a protective plastic body kit around the perimeter of the body and increased ground clearance.
The launch of production of the Lada Iskra is expected at the end of 2024, it should replace the best-selling Lada Granta.
