The first SUV of Kazakhstan: the history of the creation of the car LAF 4101

The story began in the very city where, according to the creators of the “Gentlemen of Fortune” motion picture creator, the mother of Vasily Alibabayevich lived with her mother. It was in Dzhambul in 1996 that a private entrepreneur decided to try his hand at creating vehicles of his own design. Now they would say softly that this idea was not simple, but then, at the very peak of the devastation, people’s heads hurt about something else, and the majority didn’t care who did what. However, the owner of the largest maintenance station in the region felt that it was quite realizable.
Of course, at the very beginning of this path no major developments were foreshadowed. It all came down to changing the designs of finished cars. In the first case, the top and doors were removed from the Niva SUV and the body was reinforced. Thus, Alexander Loktev (the same entrepreneur) received a phaeton for his passion for hunting.

Without a trick has not done. New Toyota Corolla

In fact, the answer to the question of why the Japanese made two versions of the Corolla lies on the surface – along with beautiful stories that since the appearance of the model in 1966, more than 46 million units have been sold. The fact is that it is the sedan version that is the best-selling one, which means it generates the most profits. And if for a hatchback and a station wagon, a bold move with a bright appearance was fully justified, then it was worth tinkering with a sedan – to determine the consumer audience by country and give customers what they expect.
So two variants of a sedan with the obvious names “Sporty” and “Prestige” were born. Of course, from a technical point of view, there are no differences between them, and even the overall dimensions are up to a millimeter. The new generation Corolla, as it should be, moved to the global TNGA architecture as a GA-C platform, in which it joined the Prius, C-HR and Lexus UX. Continue reading

Five reasons to love and hate the Mazda CX-7

Mazda joined the crossover race later than other Japanese brands. Toyota, Honda and Subaru were already working on the third generation of their crossovers, and Nissan and Mitsubishi were working on the second, when in February 2006 at the Los Angeles auto show the Mazda CX-Crossport concept was shown, which after a little tweaking and minimal changes and went to the series in April of the same year as the Mazda CX-7. Mazda had to offer something new in the already highly competitive market, and this “something” was not the usual motor for the family of universal cars.
Under the hood of the crossover, a four-turbocharged 2.3 MZR L3-VDT was registered, borrowed from the Mazdaspeed Atenza sportscar (aka Mazda 6 MPS) with a K04 turbocharger retuned to lower power and more torque. Power for different markets ranged from 238 hp (in Russia) up to 256 hp (in England). Transmission – or six-speed automatic Aisin Warner AW TF-80SC (aka – AWF21, AF40-6, AM6, AW6A-EL), or six-speed mechanics. All-wheel drive Active Torque Split AWD with Haldex controlled electronic multi-plate clutch was taken from the same Mazda 6 MPS. Continue reading
