The Lada 2105, one of the most recognisable symbols of Soviet and Russian automotive industry, is a testament to durable engineering and simple design. First introduced in 1980 by AvtoVAZ, the 2105, also known as the Lada Riva, continued in production until 2010 in Russia, with an even longer production run in Egypt.
The Lada 2105 was typically fitted with a four-cylinder petrol engine with capacities ranging from 1.2 litres to 1.6 litres. Depending on the model, the power output ranged from 64 horsepower to 76 horsepower. This engine, known for its sturdiness and longevity, was paired with a four- or five-speed manual transmission.
Designed as a compact sedan, the Lada 2105 had a simple, square-shaped aesthetic, bearing a clear resemblance to the Fiat 124, which the earlier Lada models were based upon. The car featured a roomy interior with seating for five and a spacious trunk, making it a practical choice for families and businesses alike.
True to its origins, the Lada 2105 was a no-frills vehicle, featuring a basic yet functional interior with a standard heating system and manual controls for windows and mirrors. Read more
