VAZ-21053 "Zhiguli" - an improved model based on the VAZ-2105.Rear-wheel drive four-door sedan was developed in Togliatti, on the Volga plant.In essence, the vehicle repeated all features of the "Five", except for the more powerful engine and the difference in length of the body.VAZ-21053, which presented photos was longer by 17 mm.

inexpensive model "AvtoVAZ"

In 2008-2009, was considered the cheapest car on the market.For reasons of price conjuncture of steady decline, as demand for the car has been negligible.Pop did not promote ascetic equipment and the lack of accessories that make the car comfortable means of transportation.Also at that time there was a model VAZ-2107 - a direct competitor to "five".Since the unification was almost hundred percent, it was decided to produce only one of them - VAZ-2107.

basic foundation for the model VAZ-21053 has become a platform of 2101. Design changes were not, except for the permutation brackets in the issuance of export versions with right-hand steering.

front suspension VAZ-21053 - are two independent units (left and right), consisting of extruded profiled arms which are mounted on a crossbeam using silent-blocks.Tip of the arm connected to the stub axle by means of ball bearings.Each pair of levers supported on a steel coil spring, which ring with its upper part into a special socket mounted in the wall of the engine compartment.In the middle of the spiral hydraulic shock absorber set.Both lever unit interconnected rod, which dampens vibrations and provides lateral stability of the vehicle.

pendulum rear suspension design consists of trailing arms connecting the body with the bottom beam of the bridge.An integral part of the spiral spring is also coupled with the shock absorbers.The transverse stability of the vehicle provides a special stabilizer bar, located behind the rear axle.


on the model VAZ-21053 establishes an effective dual hydraulics.From the main brake cylinder pressure comes to the front and rear wheels on the separate scheme.One pipeline connects the cylinder with the left front and right rear wheel, and the other - the left rear wheel with the right front.This division ensured the failure of one brake circuit.

front brake disc pads unventilated drives the slide covering the brake disc on both sides.The pistons are equipped with special rubber rings, gaskets, return them to their original position after each pressing on the brake pedal.

Rear brakes, drum type, consisting of two self-regulating pad actuated by a hydraulic cylinder operation.The pad back to its original position by the spring.The design also included a mechanism of a manual brake controlled from the cabin.Lever "parking brake" was in the cabin, between the front seats.

small car VAZ-21053, photo and description

Since 1999, the automotive market in Russia began a precipitous decline in prices caused by the 1998 default.VAZ-21053 model, the engine leaves much to be desired in terms of timing parameters and other characteristics, has also suffered from the volatility of market conditions.Shops selling cars, one after another refused to supply.Demand for the car VAZ-21053, which specifications have not been updated for years, was moderate, since 2000 and up to the closing of production in 2009.Once in November 2008 removed from production minicar "Oka", "Harmony-2105" and all its modifications have become the cheapest cars on the Russian market.

recycling program

car demand not used, and the manufacturer has already begun to suffer losses.The situation was even out after the introduction of the recycling program, when the owner of the old machine has received from the government of 50 000 rubles as compensation for its smelter.During this period, all models of "AvtoVAZ", including VAZ-21053, were again in demand.Prices rose and then began balancing between the cost of the certificate of recycling and the market value of the car.This continued until the removal of the assembly line model (2009).

What attracted car buyers, though a few?First of all, the availability of spare parts and accessories, which cost relatively inexpensive.In addition, the attractiveness of the VAZ-21053 for the Russians was the possibility of its repair and maintenance of their own (in the garage, on-site, or just "in the field").This circumstance lined low demand for the car, but its prestige on the world market fell hopelessly.The car stopped to complete even the most essential accessories come to the point that in early 2009, with the instrument panel removed daily odometer.

at a standstill

model VAZ-21053, as well as her "sister" for the time of manufacture can not be upgraded.Exterior years remained unchanged running characteristics also remained unheeded engineering sector "AvtoVAZ".About improved interior design nobody thought.The result of this neglect and was the fall in demand, which ended with the removal of production.


Price VAZ-21053 for the time of release did not rise above average.Today, the car is listed as an inexpensive means of transportation.The cost of the machine varies from 50 000 to 130 000 rubles, depending on the year.This prerequisite is in good technical condition as a criterion rarity on VAZ-21053 does not apply.

Reviews Reviews of model VAZ-21053 has never been enthusiastic.The owners noted shortcomings in the distribution system.Especially a lot of criticism caused a cam belt drive, which is often out of order.At a time when the engine was installed on the car "VAZ-03" and "VAZ-06" with chain drive, these claims were not.

If there are positive reviews of the owners of the car, they relate to the repair and maintenance of machines: all consumers say the relatively low prices of spare parts and the possibility of repair in his garage.
