You mean this thing?
as bad as the MF/MH Barina of 1989-1994 was in some areas cars like that and the equivalent daihatsu and mazda and even hyundai look really good for the money compared to the lada.by the time the kf/kh laser existed from 1990-1994 and the second generation of the front drive corolla the lada was off the pace big time.

The European SB Barina that first appeared in 1994 was a game changer for Holden, being the first of the European products from GM's European affiliates to be sold here with a Holden badge. They had issues with the fitment of air conditioning in the earlier batches but this was solved eventually. Then they brought out the TR Astra which was really to test the market, as it did not sell in great numbers. The TS Astra was the Astra model that brought home the bacon for Holden.

Lada died in Australia in around 1994, with stocks hanging around until 1996. I bet not even Franco Cozzo could of sold them.

they were junk.not even the late peter brock could save the car.as we were to learn later on with the second generation excel and the second generation of protons we first saw here in the nineties you can make a good car affordable and not have it turn out crap.
