Lada Niva Legend: Living Legend

Going strong since 1977, Lada’s iconic off-roader has had numerous aliases over the years including the 4x4 most recently. It now however re-adopts its most recognizable export Niva moniker for its last stretch before a replacement arrives in 2024.

An easily affordable, highly capable and un-diluted off-roader that can take the fight to far more sophisticated SUVs costing multiples more, the Lada Niva has however always been a jewel in the rough, with very little by way of creature comforts and refinement. With a more modernized and improved interior treatment and elevation to Niva Legend status for its twilight years, it now gains better noise suppression, remote central locking, alarm system and sound system with USB/mobile connectivity.
