A totally new car: the "Calina", launched at the Moscow Show 1999. This car has the same engine of the "110" (1.5 eight-valves with 71 hp, or 16V with 90 hp), but the progress in the design is evident. The hatchback version, the sedan version (similar to the Seat "Cordoba"). At the period, the car was called with the strange name of "Lotta" (in Italian this means "fight"...testing a Lada with the snow and the russian weather, it's really a fight!

With the "Calina", in the 1999 also a prototype of electric car was presented: the "Rapan". This concept-car shows the good ability of the Lada's designers...but it's very strange to see this car realized while the old "Zhighuli/124" models of 30 years ago rolls out of the factory! A prototype of Lada 2.0 DOHC 16V engine: it's still in phase of realization.
