Very different is also climate control panel, which is now automatic with electric control. New Sanden air conditioner works faster than the previous of the Delfi mark.

It is time for music! In the basic equipment is 2 DIN radio Ural the same one as in Lada Priora.

Radio has new panel, Bluetooth, hands-free phone system, USB cabel is in the box in front of the passenger.

There are some problems while loading data from flash disc, UAZ company knows about it and specialists are working to eliminate defects.

Next time will be USB connection in front radio panel.

All the trims and door panels are new, softer, lighter than the previous ones. They are more elegant now.
