The Lada-Largus van was very popular back in 2012, when the car first entered the domestic market, literally immediately standing on a par with such well-known car brands as Citroen Berlingo, Renault Kangoo and VW Caddy. But it is worth noting that at the same time, Lada Largus is in a completely different price segment. The developers of the car tried to make the model as affordable as possible, without lowering the quality of the external and internal finishes, while maintaining a high degree of structural strength and the large dimensions of the cargo compartment of the Lada-Largus van.
With the impressive size of the cargo compartment, the Lada Largus van is a practical domestic car based on the B0 platform. By its nature, it is Renault Logan Van, released in 2006, at which AvtoVAZ specialists simply changed the logo and performed some modifications. “Lada-Largus” is perceived as a workhorse that will appeal to both avid lovers of cottage trips and entrepreneurs who qualify for small freight transportation.
Ease of use
The practicality of the car goes well with a high level of comfort. The Lada Largus van has a modern air conditioning and audio system, heated front seats, central locking, power windows and other useful options that are a significant contribution to the profitability of the business. This is because the comfort of the driver affects the success of transportation.
In addition to the above advantages, in “Lada Largus” there are such options:
- Power steering.
- The glove box is large.
- Pockets in the front doors for storing small items.
- The center console is ergonomic.
- Built-in lighting point in the luggage compartment.
The car has a high cross: clearance without load - 18.1 cm, with full load - 14.5 cm. The gear ratios in the gearbox are selected specifically for the cargo model.
Security — number one challenge
The Lada Largus van has the best set of safety features, which include a carefully developed power scheme for the body, airbags, ABS, and sturdy brackets for securing cargo.
"Inside" of the car
The same gasoline engines are mounted on the Lada-Largus van as on the station wagon of the same name - these are in-line Fours with a working volume of 1.6 liters:
- An 8-valve engine that can develop 87 liters. from. at 5100 rpm.
- 16-valve engine, the potential of which is 106 liters. from. at 5800 rpm.
With standard equipment, the car is equipped with a 5-speed "mechanics" and front-wheel drive type transmission. From 0 to 100 km / h, the Lada-Largus van picks up speed in 14-15.4 seconds to 158-165 km / h. In the combined cycle, the car "eats" 7.9-8.2 liters of fuel for every hundred paths.
The van was created on the front-wheel drive platform B0. The actual body size of the Lada Largus van and the dimensions of the entire structure make the car practical and at the same time visually compact.
Cargo compartment exterior
The model of the car, which was created in 2018, can be compared first of all with her universal wagon, and the differences in body shape will be obvious:
- A rather practical solution in the commercial plan is to paint the side mirrors and the bumper of the car in black, and not in the main tone of the car, because when transporting goods on country roads, there are often cases of dents and scratches that remain almost invisible against a dark background.
- The machine is equipped with rear deaf doors without windows. This design reduces the likelihood of damage to the surface of the transported cargo, even when driving on rough roads.
Despite the large size of the cargo compartment of the Lada Largus van, the car looks compact in appearance, which is a winning advantage.
Car interior: there is always space
The design and construction choice of the interior design of the car is considered quite successful for the following reasons:
- the driver’s seat is separated from the cargo compartment, which allows you to transport various types of cargo, for example, household cosmetics, food, building materials, fabrics, etc .;
- cargo compartment volume - more than 2.5 cubic meters. m .; actual dimensions of the trunk of the Lada Largus van: length - 187 cm; opening width - 108 cm; in the area of wheel arches - 98 cm; the width behind the wheel arches is 134 cm; height - 92 cm.
For the driver, the most comfortable cabin is equipped for driving literally in any conditions, although the interior can be called refined only with a big stretch. Ergonomic and slightly austere interior design, the use of high-quality durable plastic make the car interior not only attractive, but also practical.
Low cost in operation
The availability of car maintenance consists of two main factors: the car should not require large financial investments, and the price of spare parts and consumables should be moderate. With both factors, the Lada Largus van with a larger cargo compartment is more than average in full order. Engines from AvtoVAZ, if an unplanned breakdown occurs with them, bring to life quite real low cost. The same applies to other components and systems of the car.
The low cost of spare parts is also due to their wide distribution. Car brands such as Renault Logan, Sandero, Duster and Kaptur, Nissan Almera and Ixrey are produced on the B0 platform with many details. The annual total circulation of these cars is about 200,000 copies only in the Russian market. It is understandable that spare parts for them are produced in large quantities, which helps to save significantly.
The only and obvious drawback of Lada-Largus is its deliberate asceticism. The interior of the car has not changed at all since the creation of the first generation Renault Logan. In this model there is only the most necessary minimum. But many motorists today want to see in the car and some additional excesses like heating seats and mirrors, modern multimedia, electronic assistants. The impressive dimensions of the Lada Largus van, heated front seats, a single-head radio, an ABS system and rear parking sensors are all standard features. The car is equipped with only two airbags and air conditioning with manual control.
Many cars are created with the aim of setting high-speed records, and most of them conquer with their stylish and original design. The Lada-Largus van with the dimensions of the body, allowing the transportation of overall things, was invented specifically for work and for the family. The car will be able to drive where sports cars with low clearance cannot move. At the same time, drivers will look at Lada Largus with true love, because only a working car is considered to be truly beautiful.
