This is Lada 4×4, The off-road legend was born as the Niva in 1976 and designed to be strong like bear – sturdiness and capability were necessary to get to the deepest parts of the sprawling Soviet empire.
For 2020, the 42-year-old SUV has been treated to some modest changes. The only change to the exterior is the addition of fog lights to Urban models. Inside, there’s a refreshed dashboard with much more modern climate control switchgear and larger air vents. There are two new 12V sockets and cupholders on the centre console, while there are also new seats and changes to the cabin lighting and grab handles.
Still Lada’s rugged four-wheel drive doesn’t even have a driver’s airbag or an infotainment system.
Lada Niva is powered by a naturally-aspirated 1.7-litre four-cylinder delivering power to all four wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. There’s just 83 horsepower and 95 pound-feet of torque – the five-door 4×4 takes 19 seconds to get to 100 km per hour, and tops out at 85 mph.
