Here is named the date for export, for example, to Germany. In Russia, the car was available much earlier. In export then there is a '2' before the type designation '110'. The criticism on the car is somewhat devastating. The design smelt too much of the scent of past times and the testers complained about lack of safety features. Although, the car had a lot what was standard in the West: Plenty of room for people and luggage, asymmetrically folding rear bench seat and bumpers in body colour.
But one accused the product defects in manufacturing such as clearly unequal clearance. Although, this Lada had a quite respectable engine with good performance and relatively low fuel consumption and noise with alleged help from Porsche. But if it then for the steering was no help, not even for money and fine words, then that was a fall-back to the seventies, and if the car had to be specially unlocked before starting a fall-back to the nineties.
That's what happens when you wait so long with the export. Moreover, if this steering wheel still had to be held firmly, even at faster straight ahead, but one could not prevent parts of the dashboard moved freely, the skill of the engine was diametrically opposed to the rest of the car. Perhaps Porsche would also have to make the rest of the vehicle and its production.
