Several resources reported new details about Lada Vesta Facelift on the Web at once. The main thing is that the timing of the launch of the project, which is at a high level of readiness, has become known.
So, Avtograd News states that the production of the updated Lada Vesta is scheduled for December of this year, and sales should start in February 2022. Due to the pandemic and the shutdown of production from a number of suppliers, in particular from South Korea (molds and accessories for the manufacture of plastic interior parts), it is possible to postpone the deadline. RCI News also confirms the above dates. The launch of the series is December 2021, the official sales are February 2022. It is noted that Vesta FL will be launched on time if Samara does not slow down production due to the problem with the shortage of Bosch electronic components.
The interior of the restyled Lada Vesta has already been partially declassified. Inside, the model will receive a modern front panel, modified door cards and a center console, a steering wheel with a large number of buttons, a digital instrument cluster (for the first time on Lada), a climate control unit from Renault Arkana. Both sources claim that the interior of the car will be able to boast of higher-quality materials and soft plastic. RCI News draws an analogy with Kia Cerato. According to the same source, Lada Vesta will have a regular audio system in the basic configurations, a 7-inch multimedia in the medium ones, and a 10-inch vertical tablet in the top ones.

At the same time, the rear bumper will be made with a fashionable false flap.
