Can Russians actually do a decent car?

625 ratings | 68695 views
Discover the features of the new bestseller from Russia. Welcome to the new Russian Rides series with Tim Kirby! Here we will test-drive Russian-made cars and see how they handle Russia’s rough and tough road conditions. There is the common misconception that Russian cars are inherently poor quality and unreliable in the field. Let’s figure out whether it’s true — since Russia has a lot of fields, so to speak, it should not be too difficult! We’ll start with the Lada Vesta from Avtovaz: a family car with an elegant appearance. Want to know why it’s the fourth best-selling in Russia and a commonly exported vehicle? Here's the first part of the Russian Rides series to answer all your questions! http://rbth.com

What is the MATTER with Americans... they seen incapable of producing a video without that bl00dy AWFUL groaning, whining guitar noise in the background. Then they yell in an attempt to be heard over the wretched row. Just turn the racket OFF. Speak in a normal voice and throw in a bit of pleasant background music only when we are neither listening to the commentary or the background noises (like the engine, etc), but driving through some suitable countryside or townscape. Having read more negative reviews besides my own, I see that this bunch needs to REALLY, REALLY pay attention if they hope to make a splash on the internet. I couldn't bear it beyond the first few minutes!

I'm not sure I understood his problem with the tires. He didn't specify if his gripe was the diameter or width of the tires. If the width had him upset, he needs to spend an entire winter in Russia or Canada driving through snow. Narrow tires are best. Guys in the US are obsessed with wide tires because they believe they look "cool."

The Batman voice thing is cringe worthy. Instead of swinging the camera around like a drunk sailor how about interior and engine shots? How about telling the audience what type of transmission it has, MPG, and how much horsepower? You can own Russian car reviews if done right.

Iol, this car is engineered by the French, uses Renault Megane parts, and is designed by an Englishman. How is it a Russian car?
It is designed by French, not engineered. And yeah, it has up to ~20% foreign parts. But which car doesn't have them? Following your logic we could assume that IPhone is all Chinese

Just keep in mind that American people actually VOTED for Donald Trump, who is a bona fide moron. All the rest makes sense after that. They are simply a whole nation of idiots which keep on proving themselves stupid over and over and over again.

This is the most expensive Russian car. This is all that the Russians are capable of for today. Russia is a country of the third order, a raw material appendage of the west.
Eddie Stevenson-Kaatsch (3 months ago)
Russia only builds what Russia needs. It has been like this for as long as anyone can remember. What they make always works perfectly well as far as functionality goes. If they want poncy crap they look further afield for fancy toys to play with. When in Rome...

Both of the cars that you mentioned have retarded design. If you google this car design is made way before Focus, Hyundai or other Japanese boring designs come. Hell they can't do it right even when they copy this "X" design . Hint: look at Honda or Mitsubishi.

Recovering New Yorker (1 year ago)
Nice good looking compact car. Other comments have said it's primitive (port instead of direct injection) but I'm not so sure that's a bad thing. Better to do the simple things well than the fancy things badly. Compared to older Ladas it's apparent that Russian cars have come a long way since the Soviet Union.
OXiG (9 months ago)
Considering that Lada 2107 was manufactured until 2012, Lada Vesta is a huge leap for Russian auto industry. Lots of modern cars still doesn't have direct injection, and many Russians considers it to be an advantage, because port injection is much more reliable and not so demanding on quality of fuel.

It looks modern but in reality it is behind in technology since it only comes with port injection and engines that only produce 78 and 90 HP

Oleg Lecinsky That is the whole point. A modern design but made tough for the harsh winter that any local mechanic can fix in the big country that is Russia.
Oleg Lecinsky (10 months ago)
Take a look at the map of Russia to imagine that sometimes you're like 2000+ km away from any certified service center. And what are you going to do with an "up-to-date" sophisticated engine when something fails and all help you can get is 3 local mechanics working in a concrete hangar?
ZnenTitan (10 months ago)
rbagel55 It's what the Russians need. A modern design car that doesn't require a degree in computer science to fix and will take what a Russian winter can dish out and keep rolling.

Discerning Troll (1 year ago)
Les Roches It is pointless to even explain to US idiots. There own cars don't sell at all overseas or at home that much. That's there real problem. The best sellers in the USA are European Designed or Japanese designed. Time and again they have tried to sell there US designed crap in Australia. They always fail and pack up and go home. Ford and GM gave up selling there larger car here. You can drive all day in an Australian city and never see a USA designed car apart from a few Jeeps with there European Diesel. They will be gone in a matter now of 4/5 years. They have nothing going for them. No better than the best Japanese or European. Give more problems. Less durable. Exhirbitantly expensive on parts. Never seen a Cadillac in Australia. Why? Who would buy a gas guzzling heap of shit like that that handles like a bag of shit. Is poorly engineered when for the same money you can buy a Mercedes or BMW or Audi etc. That is the problem. The US itself can't design or build a good car. How did they save GM USA? Apart from the billions Obama poured in the took all there best designers and managers from around the world and set them loose and they cleaned up the USA division. There new large car is now very similar to the GM Commodore designed in Australia. Combines the best of European technology with Japanese finish and ease of Production. Something the US could never come up with. Due credit must go to the German Designers of Opel. That was what the Aussie engineers stated with making it a bit bigger and more of a comfortable touring car for long distances. GMs smaller cars now made in the USA are more or less copies of GMs European designs. Mainly Opel. It was easy just sideline the US designers and bad management to a large degree. That's how good the home grown US industry is.
