Kalina, red Kalina: buy Lada Kalina

What, where and how are we looking?
AvtoVAZ never pleased us with interesting restyling (he pleases with machines one more time), so we are looking for any first-generation car. The Kalina-2 (VAZ 2192/2194) will be viewed somehow separately: this is a completely different car, technically more similar to Grant.
Usually in this place I tell which one is better to choose a motor or box, but this time the details will not be for obvious reasons.

In Subaru, the idea took the heat, and therefore took their work on the Impreza and “dopili” her trolley for the required tasks.

BENEFITS OF THE BOX-AUTOMATIC
A car with automatic transmission gives you the opportunity to concentrate on the road, without being distracted by the gear shift. This especially applies to novice motorists who find it difficult to handle the “mechanics”. Now it is possible in a driving school to be trained in a car equipped with an “automatic”. Just keep in mind that driving a car with a manual transmission will be prohibited, as will be marked in the driver’s license. Continue reading
