Chronology
Successor Lada Priora

The Lada 110 or VAZ-2110 is a sedan built by Russian automaker AvtoVAZ since 1995. It also spawned two close derivatives: the Lada 111 estate and the Lada 112 hatchback. It was one of the first generation of Lada vehicles produced after the fall of communism, but before foreign investment and partnerships influenced the direction of AvtoVAZ.

History[edit]

The development stages of the 110 began in the early 1990s, with a prototype coupé called the Katran 1.6i produced that was first demonstrated at the AvtoVAZ Togliatti factory in 1991. A lack of financial investment stalled the project, but the design of the Katran prototype was revisited in around 1995, when work on the 110 series began, and clear similarities between the Katran's shape and the 110's overall design can be seen.[3]

The 110 enjoyed moderate sales success in the domestic Russian market; although early models were hindered by a number of recurring reliability problems.

The 110 featured a 1.6 litre engine producing approximately 90 hp (67 kW). Production began with 8 valve, and subsequently, 16 valve motors. Overall, the car weighed around 1050 kilos (2315 lb).

The Lada 110, 111 and 112 were largely restyled in 2007 and relaunched as the Lada Priora.

Ukrainian production[edit]

Since 2007, the 110 has been discontinued by Lada, however Bogdan continues to produce this car as the Bogdan 2110 for the Ukrainian market.

Racing[edit]

Team LADA Sport commenced the 2009 World Touring Car Championship season with a trio of 110s for Jaap Van Lagen, Kirill Ladygin and Viktor Shapovalov. The team replaced the 110s with the Prioras during the course of the season.
