Could be that FIAT bought the rights to the engine. And the closest thing to Palio is the Punto

Strada hasn't been sold her either.

I considered a Panda before i saw the UAPC on sale

Older Lada engines were actually developed by Fiat.

The only Palio bodystyle available in Western Europe was the station-wagon (Palio Weekend), and it was usually a little cheaper than the Punto at the time it was offered there.

I probably would do the same. I guess you eventually can have more fun with the Lada

The engine in RWD-era ladas is indeed design by Fiat, but for some reason they abandoned the design and opted for a OHV engine (dunno lol) in their 124. Some soures state that FIAT had intended it to use all-iron top and block, thus requiring leaded gasoline but lada changed it to aluminium, as "progress" was a ideology when they redesigned the Fiat 124 to be Vaz-2101

The belt-synchronized SOHC layout is a later development of the OHV used in the 124, and after seeing some cases of belt rupture in Brazilian Fiat engines I actually don't think it was a bad move from Fiat to keep the OHV setup in the 124.

Rear brake drums of the Vaz-2101 were also made out of aluminium but IIRC it didn't have nothing to do with ideology, as Russia just has some enormous bauxite reserves. Regarding all-iron block and head, it's supposed to increase the heat retention on the engine, which is actually not that bad at all as it achieves the optimum operational temperature quicker. No wonder Ford uses an iron block for its 1.0L EcoBoost instead of the aluminium block used in bigger EcoBoost versions.

I meant, that FIAT had first intended to use the OHC design with a engine top made from cast-iron and thus requiring leaded gas. Lada's do not need leaded gas, as they had a agenda of making a practical people's car

Changed a burned-out lamp today. And I think the alternator regulator is breaking, the lights are flickering at idle.

The flickering was tracked to be a bit corroded Ground.

I bought a bluetooth-based OBD reader named Drive Looper. It shows various data from the car's own system, focusing on mileage

For example, I drove 55Mph behind a semi, on a even road and the app showed a consumption of 59 US MPG! :O

Proof for my statement is that the average consumption showed on the app is about the same (+-0,25litres) i calculated using GPS-based kms instead of the car's own trip meter.

Bu it might be baloney what the temporary consumption is, the average MPG i get is 45.
Not bad for a russian car with a 30-years old engine design :3

Are you sure its engine design is only 30-years old?
