On a simplified version of the Lada Granta, which is produced without airbags, anti-lock braking system (ABS) and power windows, it will be impossible to leave Russia - anywhere but Belarus.
 
This is reported by Lada.Online with reference to a source in the Lada dealer network.

When buying a Lada Granta Classic of this modification, it is now required to sign an agreement on restrictions on travel abroad. The fact is that due to the reduced environmental class, such a car can only be driven on the territory of Russia, as well as those countries with which there are bilateral agreements on this matter. Currently, they have been achieved only with Belarus

Also, to purchase Lada Granta Classic, you need to sign a document stating that the car is not equipped with an ERA-GLONASS alarm button, and an obligation to install it. Due to the shortage of electronic components, the government allowed to do without a system that serves to call emergency services in case of an accident at the end of 2021.

AvtoVAZ resumed the production of Lada Granta Classic in a simplified configuration after leaving idle on June 8. The new cars were equipped with a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with 90 horsepower and a manual gearbox. The environmental class of the car was downgraded to the Euro-2 standard.
