Click above for hi-res gallery of the Lada C-Cross concept

The Moscow Auto Show is underway and Damon's on site with camera in hand. The car you see here is the Lada C-Cross Concept, which looks kinda like a Chinese knock-off of a last-gen Euro Ford Focus with added ground clearance. The C-Cross show car presumably gives a sneak peek at what a future AvtoVAZ car-based crossover might look like, and if we had to guess, a production version probably isn't too far off. We'll pass on it, though. Our hearts and minds forever belong to the Lada Niva, whose old-school looks are like visual comfort food. Plus, something tells us that this C-Cross thing wouldn't do nearly as well underwater.

      Moscow auto shows really need to find some better looking models. Yikes!

      Lada C-Cross is a bit of stupid name, as there already is the Citroën C-Crosser...

      If it's not the TopGear Lotus tuned Lada does it even matter?

      Many moons agomy 1st car was a Lada 1500s,which looks like a Fiat 124-125 cross (because of the 4 headlight grille). It was a good,durable car,that I kicked the crap out of.There was the usual odd electrical gremlin(it was based on a Fiat afterall),but the drivetrain was dead reliable.It was owned by a mechanic before we got it and the engine was rebuilt from what I understand. It must have been fortified somehow too(because it had more oomph than it should have had for that type of car).I once got it up to a little over 160km an hour on flat piece of road,used to redline it fairly consistently(it had a nice sounding exhaust note) and the engine hung in there.The nail in the coffin of this poor little car was our harsh Canadian winters.It didn't have a block heater(west coast car) and I used a blowtorch to heat the oil pan and the water pump at -35C. It seems as the blow torch damaged the waterpump(gasket perhaps) and caused it to fail on my journey home.After filling the rad with snow(no water in the middle of nowhere) I limped it back to civilization.I was to poor at the time to deal with repairing the car and she was abandoned.Sure do miss her and the fun times we had :-(

        You monster!

        Actually, both my father and grandfather owned similar vehicles, Polish Fiat 125P, which both took a beating and continued ticking.

      That's a Lada? Not bad...

      I like how companies are starting to take styling cues from Hyundai :D (that grill is so Veracruz).

      I always liked the word lada. It reminds me of rhianna's new song disturbia.

      The car? Not so much. I'm disturbed just by looking at it.

      The whole thing screams Mazda if you ask me, It's like a Dash of 3 a sprinkle of CX-5, a smattering of 6, and a dose of Euro Ford Focus.
