Lada is hard at work reinventing itself from Soviet era vehicles to new Renault-Nissan-based vehicles, which also happens to be its new owner. First launching the Vesta and XRay last year, Lada is ready to launch a larger crossover. This was previewed this week by the XCode concept, a name which will likely carry into production.

The design is largely what you would now expect from Lada. The front and side design mimics that of the Vesta and XRay. Perhaps the best part of Lada’s new design in the side sculpting. Its very unique and youthful and is helping sell their new vehicles. The rear of the XCode takes after the Nissan Juke, a vehicle which likely shares the same platform.

Expect the XCode to launch next year with sales mainly in Russia, but exports to Europe sometime down the line.
