The head of Renault spoke about the new generation of LADA Niva


The head of Renault, Luca de Meo, spoke about the new global crossover, which in various editions will be produced under the brands Dacia, LADA and Renault. The harbinger of such cars was the Bigster concept car, which debuted in January of 2021, wrote Autonews.ru portal.

According to Mr. de Meo, each of the brands will release their own model, unlike the cars of other brands. Moreover, all cars will share among themselves up to 85% of common components and assemblies. The novelties will be built on an extended version of the modular platform CMF-B, which formed the basis for the third generation Dacia Logan and Sandero. The top manager noted that the annual sales of new soplatform crossovers should exceed 1 million units. The next generation of Niva model (previously called 4x4) will be produced under the Russian LADA brand.

Luca de Meo said the new car will be more suited to tough off-road driving than Dacia Bigster. The exterior of the new LADA Niva will be made using some elements of retro style, as it will be with the Renault 5 model, in instance, which will be revived as an electric car. “We imagine the new LADA Niva as a car with good cross-country ability, adapted to serious loads and difficult conditions. To some extent, it can be compared with Suzuki Jimny,” Luca de Meo said in an interview with AutomotiveNews.

Earlier, AVTOVAZ published the first teaser of the new generation LADA Niva SUV, which will premiere in 2024. The model will receive at least two different versions - standard and for serious off-road with ground clearance up to 240 mm. According to unofficial data, the engine lineup will include a 1.8-liter naturally aspirated engine that will work in conjunction with a 6-speed manual transmission or CVT. In addition, LADA Niva will have an edition with a 1.3-liter "turbo four" from Renault Arkana and the new Kaptur. At the same time, the output of the unit will be reduced from 150 to 130 hp.
