Leaders of the Russian car market in 2017


The basis for the new Niva was taken from "Lynx"

LADA 4x4 Urban.jpgSales of LADA 4x4 Urban (the former "Niva") will start in October of 2014. An updated version of the SUV called Urban is distinguished by original plastic bumper, partially painted in body color, enlarged cell plastic radiator closure, larger tires, aluminum wheels. The car has received increased steering wheel, another perception of seats, facing was changed. Among the additional options - Japanese air conditioning, electric set, standard radio player. The developers had a task to make the car more attractive, more comfortable and more silent, which will better meet the modern needs of the market and to increase the interest of buyers. For many years, Niva has the main two advantages - off-road performance and price (there are no analogues with such a set of off-road quality and price in the world). 

To design a new car based on the current sales of 50,000 per year – it is impractical financially, so we work to improve what we have. However, changes were made with the technical part: the basis for it was used from a car "Lynx" (small scale model based on the "Niva", presented by Togliatti tuning "Bronto" company in 2009). There is a special group that works with the problem of vibration, which is always remarked at the "Niva" cars, changes affected also the transmission. "The car has become more silent, but the development continues. Not all of our ideas may be announced today”, - said the director of the project of cars "4x4", Anatoly Moskaluk. - But one we can say for sure: the style of X-Ray will not be applied at Niva".

In general, a special project to modernize LADA 4x4 today is aimed to highlight the popular characteristics of the car, to identify groups of customers and to form a wide range, depending on their interests, by trying to get away from the "mono-properties."
