At the mass production launch ceremony, AvtoVAZ head Bo Anderson said the price would be between 495,000 and 600,000 rubles (6,800-8,100 euros).

Initially, Lada Vesta will have a 106 hp 1.6-liter 16-valve petrol engine, which will work with a manual or robotic transmission. At a later stage, the range will be expanded with a unit with the same displacement, but increased to 114 horsepower.
