Lada XRAY crossover is the long waited SUV from Russia which will hit the showrooms around Europe very soon. The announced price of around 7000 Euros tells us that this new vehicle will compete directly with the super successful Dacia Duster. Do I think it is worth taking the risk of investing your money in Russian manufactured car... well, check out the features and specs listed below and decide it yourself. There are some positive feedback about the all new Vesta which we reviewed in February earlier this year so probably that is a good trend not only for a single model but for the whole model line of the Russian car manufacturer Lada.
