Lada Samara VAZ-2114

VAZ-2114 (LADA Samara) is a five-door hatchback of the Volga Automobile Plant, a restyled version of the VAZ-2109, a continuation of the family under the code name “Samara-2”. The model differed from its predecessors in the original design of the front part of the body with new headlights, hood, radiator trim, bumpers and the presence of moldings.

It was presented to the public in 2001 and the serial production started on April 2003 and terminated on December 2013.

The interior of the VAZ-2114 was equipped with a new instrument panel (the so-called “European panel”), an adjustable steering column, a steering wheel from the “tenth” family, a new heater design, and front power windows. The car was equipped with a 1.5-liter eight-valve engine (VAZ-2111) with distributed fuel injection.

Initially, the designers planned to change the rear lights and increase the trunk opening – like the VAZ-2115 sedan, but such alterations were considered too costly.

Small-scale production of the hatchback in AvtoVAZ pilot production began in 2001, and the model moved to the main conveyor in 2003.

From 2003 to 2005 they were produced with 1.5 liter Euro-2 engines. From 2005 to 2007 they were produced with 1.6 liter Euro-2 engines. Also during this period, we smoothly switched from the 21114 engine to the Kalinovsky VAZ-11183.

Since 2008, cars began to be equipped with a new control unit (M73) and environmental friendliness became higher than Euro-3.

Since 2011, the control unit (M74) has been replaced. According to the documents, environmental friendliness has not changed, but in fact, thanks to the transition to a new control unit, the car began to comply with Euro-4 requirements. Due to the new control unit, the gas pedal was replaced by removing the cable. Now the engine is completely electronically controlled, which immediately added problems in the first batches of the car. By the end of 2011, the problems were partially resolved with the release of new firmware I414DE06. At the beginning of 2012, the malfunctions were overcome with the new firmware I414DE07, which became final, and no more updates were released.

Since 2007, the car has been equipped with a new 1.6-liter eight-valve engine (VAZ-11183) of environmental class up to Euro-3 inclusive, the model receives the VAZ-21144 index. An “electric throttle” and an “electronic gas pedal” (E-gas) were installed. It was produced in standard and luxury versions. Distinctive features from the old engine – the catalyst is located not under the bottom, but near the engine, a plastic decorative cover is put on the engine, instead of an aluminum receiver, a plastic one is installed. In addition to the new engine, the car received a new front panel (there is no glove compartment in the upper part; more rigid material is used, which increases strength, but also increases the likelihood of extraneous noise), a new instrument cluster with an on-board computer function.

In 2008, there were minor changes in appearance: instead of wide moldings, narrow ones began to be installed on the doors. In 2009, a subsidiary of AvtoVAZ OJSC, Super-Avto CJSC, modernized the VAZ-2114, namely, it installed a 16-valve 1.6-liter engine on the car; The car’s power became 89 horsepower. With a 16-valve engine, the car model received the index 211440-24. The dynamic characteristics of the car have increased. In addition to the engine, the suspension, gearbox, clutch and brakes were changed. This model was equipped with 14-inch wheels on stamped rims.

In 2010, Super-Avto CJSC prepared for production a car with a 1.6-liter 21126 16V engine from the LADA Priora with a power of 98 HP. This model received the index 211440-26.

On December 24, 2013, AvtoVAZ completed production of the Lada Samara family of cars – the last white five-door VAZ-2114 hatchback rolled off the assembly line.
