Today we will talk about a 4×4 car that you will not expect, dear Arab GT followers, it is the Russian Lada Niva 2020 model that got some updates but not radical changes, and now this renewed car bears the name of Lada Niva 4X4.
Just as a reminder, since 1977, Lada Niva cars are being sold without major renewals or changes to their exterior design, and they always maintain a 4-cylinder engine and four-wheel-drive system.
However, Lada recently decided to announce the updates of the 2020 model car, which is illustrated in the photos you can see below. The name of the Russian car was also renewed, as we mentioned at the beginning.
This is a set of photos of the updated 2020 Lada Niva:
The Simple updates made to the car’s exterior included fog lights on the front bumper, in addition to some negligible touches. As for the interior of the newest Russian-made car, it got an updated climate control unit, and the car seat design was renewed to become more comfortable and now the car is available with heated seats. The cockpit also got electric powered windows, and the volume of the storage space increased in for the front passenger.
This Russian-made car is powered by a naturally aspirated 4-cylinder of 1.7 liters gasoline engine, it produces 83 hp, and it is connected to a 5-speed manual gearbox that delivers power via a four-wheel-drive system to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 17 seconds (No surprise), while Niva’s top speed is 142 km / h (88 mph).
As Lada put it the updated Niva 4X4 is “the most reasonably priced SUV in the Russian market” but the price of this updated car has not been revealed at the time of writing this article.
