Former AZLK designer spoke about the new Moskvich

Former chief designer of the Lenin Komsomol Automobile Plant (AZLK) Igor Zaitsev worked at the enterprise from 1974 to 1987. He believes that the new Moskvich 3 has a modern design, but there are a few nuances.

“Overall the car looks good, but there is work to be done. This car has a traditional “Chinese”. If you look from the side, you will see two slanted stamps on the doors. One of them, in my opinion, is superfluous, it should be removed. There is another solution to this shortcoming: the top line must be somehow connected to the bottom, in other words, visually closed. You can still slightly change the shape of the bumper,” quotes Zaitsev.

He explained his opinion with a joke: “If I were Chaliapin, I would sing differently.”

Zaitsev thinks that this crossover is unlikely to be upgraded for the sake of originality – this will cost money and time to reconfigure the equipment.

We ourselves add that it is a great achievement to achieve the production of a car in just a few months. And this takes into account the time to look for partners. This not only saved jobs within the company itself. The factory will also switch to small-scale assembly and production of its own cars.

Recall that Moskvich 3 is equipped with a 150 hp turbocharged gasoline engine of 1.5 liters. It is mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT.
