At the height of the semiconductor crisis, LADA brand dealers behaved like all other sellers: that is, they installed a lot of completely useless “special stages” in order to then drive up the price of a car to exorbitant heights. As a result, in some salons for LADA Vesta they could ask up to 2,000,000 rubles! The AvtoVzglyad portal decided to see with its own eyes how things are right now.

Of course, we were most interested in the “anti-crisis” LADA Granta. Recall that AVTOVAZ is currently producing the only version of this model called Classic 2022. It does not have anti-lock brakes, airbags, and a 90-horsepower 1.6-liter eight-valve only meets Euro-2 standards.

At the same time, the new equipment cannot be called “ragged”! After all, the VAZ team was generous with painted moldings, power steering, front power windows, central locking, power mirrors and Isofix mounts. What is missing is air conditioning. However, the auto giant soon promises to return it.

Theoretically, 658,300 rubles should be asked for such a car. But in practice? Let’s say right away that AVTOVAZ persistently asked its dealers not to be impudent, but to make an extremely modest markup on top of the recommended retail price (RRP). And, having visited several dealers, the AvtoVzglyad portal is ready to confirm: there is not even a trace of the former dealer greed!

In three DCs, sellers worked like a blueprint: for sedans in metallic beige, managers asked for 45-50 thousand more than prescribed by the RRP. But they asked not just like that, but in exchange for “dopa”. The set of non-standard options includes interior mats, a set of motorists, a radio tape recorder and an alarm system.

In general, “folk” price tags have really returned to LADA car dealerships. Moreover, employees of points of sale are even ready to place an order for a “naked” car without any “special stages”. But they do not specify how long the order will be fulfilled.

And one more sign of the new time. Managers jump nervously if they see a client wanting to take a picture of a car. Say, there is an instruction “from above” to limit shooting … I wonder why? After all, the “anti-sanction” Granta looks quite decent. But these are trifles. The main thing is that there are cars, and dealer cheats are quite humane.
