According to the press service of the Togliatti auto giant, additional soundproofing elements are integrated with the car floor carpet; the carpet itself became one-piece molded.
The soundproofing of the motor shield, upholstery of the thresholds and other interior elements have undergone changes.
The wheel arches are now protected by new covers made of brushed material.
Such a solution, as noted at AvtoVAZ, not only reduces the noise from small stones, but also prolongs the life of the anti-corrosion coating of the body.
SUVs with upgraded sound insulation were tested in laboratory and road conditions.
Noise and vibration levels were measured at idle and at full speed, on smooth and rough pavement, on paving stones and off-road. Tests, according to representatives of the plant, have shown the effectiveness of the new sound insulation.
New soundproofing elements are installed on Lada Niva Legend SUVs in all trim levels.
