GM-AVTOVAZ modernized Chevrolet Niva SUV


GM-AVTOVAZ has tested and updated the software of the electronic engine control unit in order to further improve the consumer properties of the Chevrolet Niva. Cars with new software are already available in all the show rooms of official dealers of GM-AVTOVAZ, reports the press service of the joint venture.

As it was noted, the change will provide car owners with improved dynamics, confident acceleration and additional comfort when driving a Chevrolet Niva in the city and on the tracks, while maintaining optimal fuel consumption. However, the update does not affect the engine's life and compliance with Euro-5 toxicity standards. During testing, it was possible to confirm the improvement of elasticity and thrust in low and medium engine speeds.

Recall, in accordance with the current technical regulations on the new vehicle approval, all the configurations of the Chevrolet Niva SUV of 2019 are equipped with an anti-lock braking system (ABS), a driver's airbag and an emergency call system of the ERA-GLONASS. In addition, GLC configuration is offered with an additional package of noise insulation to improve the acoustic comfort in the car.

As AUTOSTAT reported earlier, for the first five months of 2019, sales of Chevrolet Niva in the Russian market were 8,975 cars (-25%). As a result, the SUV from GM-AVTOVAZ entered the TOP-25 of the best-selling models in Russia, noted the analysts of the agency "AUTOSTAT".
