True, this time the “lost”, of course, was not the prototype of the future people's Datsun, but “only” his drawings, which soon surfaced on the World Wide Web. Of course, the article with the images of the upcoming news was promptly seized, but what has flown to the Internet cannot be cut down with an ax …
The future Datsun is a little more elegant than the donor Granta, but the feed with a longer trunk lid and other lights looks much slimmer The future Datsun is a little more elegant than the donor Granta, but the feed with a longer trunk lid and other lights looks much slimmer It’s a long history with the iPhone prototype “forgotten in the bar”, a detailed description of which then appeared on one of the profile sites long before the premiere. It is not clear, however, whether the Franco-Japanese-Russian alliance really decided to take advantage of the marketing practices of the apple company and made a conscious "drain" or, in this case, a banal disorder? Be that as it may, the drawings of the car with the factory index NKD 2196, which will be produced at the facilities of AvtoVAZ under the revived Datsun brand, are strolling around the World Wide Web.
A careful study of these images confirms our previous information that the VAZ Lada Granta will be the basis of the novelty. And it’s not just about borrowing the platform, but about using the power structure of the body. Of course, the upcoming Datsun will differ from the Lada Granta design. For example, in the design of the grille, the theme of the “rounded hexagon” is used, which is used in the recently presented updated logo of the Datsun brand. However, in addition to purely stylistic differences, there will be more significant ones: the upcoming budget Datsun is 70 mm longer than its ancestress Lada Granta (4330 mm versus 4260 mm for Lada). The wheelbase of both cars is the same, and the entire increase in the longitudinal dimensions of Datsun fell on its rear overhang. As a result, the “Russian Japanese” looks more proportionate and has a more capacious trunk.
In our previous attempts to predict the appearance of the future people's sedan under the Datsun brand, we also relied on the look of the Lada Granta, but we borrowed the design style from the Nissan models. However, the final appearance of the subcompact turned out to be more prosaic.
