    New items that will surprise the Russian auto industry in 2021
    Alexey Kovanov
    January 2, 2021

    But we can when we want! This was shown to us by the past 2020: KamAZ, with the direct participation of the St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, rolled out the electric Kamu-1, and the native AVTOVAZ was generous in general for the restyling of Largus and Niva. What will happen next? The AvtoVzglyad portal has outlined an approximate calendar of the release of fresh developments.

    However, in fairness, we note that there was no formal premiere of either LADA Largus or LADA Niva - both events are scheduled for early next year. However, we are sure that the SUV will change only externally , retaining the old equipment and interior.

    But Largus will please not only with a tweaked "face", but also with a relatively fresh interior : "relatively" - because the front panel was taken from Renault Duster, and the related XRAY shared other details (steering wheel, seats, etc.).

    Let's go further. The main long-term construction of the domestic auto industry - the Aurus project - will soon acquire serial status: the production of Senat sedans will start in the spring! Although the main hopes of the bosses of the Russian premium brand, of course, are pinning on the Komendant crossover. They wanted to show him at the Moscow Motor Show, but, as you know, the exhibition was canceled ...

    Technically, the Commandant is no different from the Senate. But what is there technically! Both cars have a common interior, ground clearance and even most of the body parts (in any case, the cars are completely identical to the front pillar). We will see all this with our own eyes in a few months. Although the production on the conveyor will be delayed again - right up to 2022.

    Only Vesta remained in the LADA brand. But soon the situation will be corrected: the restyling is not just being prepared at full speed, but is already rushing along the finish line - the first ten cars have been assembled in Izhevsk, which after the New Year holidays will go to sea trials. And the series "facelift" will go in the summer.

    What to expect from a refreshed flagship? Optics will replace halogen bulbs with fashionable LEDs, and the headlights will be shared by Renault Logan of the latest, third generation. A large touchscreen of the media system and other new items will appear in the salon. But the 1.3-liter turbo engine, which the Vestavods dream of so much, does not seem to exist ...

    If in six months the country recovers from covid, then the Comtrans exhibition, where the main cargo novelties are displayed, will be held in a completely familiar “live” format. And there, most likely, a new generation of the gas "monochromatic" - "Sobol NN" will be presented. But GAZ showed the first prototype of this car to the public ... in 2012!

    By the way, the spies have already declassified the new generation Sobol. Representatives of the Gorky Automobile Plant did not deny, confirming: yes, the pictures were taken during a private demonstration of prototypes, when the company's bosses "were choosing optimal solutions for a number of structural elements." I wonder which of them "leaked" the photo?

    Of course, in the new year we would very much like to see another frame novelty from the Russian brand - the fresh UAZ Patriot. But it looks like the project is on a very long pause. And that's really bad news! After all, the SUV, designed by the aforementioned St. Petersburg Polytechnic, turned out to be just what you need.

    What. The AvtoVzglyad portal congratulates Russian automakers on the New Year and wishes them new products - good ... and very good. The main thing is that there should be as many of these new products as possible, and that lack of finance should not hinder their putting on the conveyor (as, for example, happened with the startup Zetta).
