Driving report Lada Niva Travel: Welcome to the nineties: This is how the new Russian SUV drives
The Russian edge Lada Niva is a cult-and if the rust and care is correct, a fascinating everyday car for everyone who does not belong to the comfort-spoiled generation of snowflakes. Now the Niva comes as a new edition. Site tested him.

The legendary Lada Niva always remained the Niva, even if it was officially not allowed for quite a while – General Motors had secured the name for the five -door Chevrolet Niva from the joint venture with Avtovaz. The joint venture has been history for over a year. And now there are two Niva, the most recently marketed ancestor as a 4×4 and the former Chevrolet as (somewhat) more modern Lada Niva Travel. Even if the import in Europe was officially ended, both are in Germany. Lada Automobile GmbH, which is still responsible for the service with over 200 dealers, brings the vehicles into the country in homeopathic doses by individual acceptance.

Lada Niva comes to us in small quantities

After the exit of GM, Lada donated a completely new and angular front section to the former Chevrolet. It is better than the round of the previous form. At 4.10 meters, the travel is four centimeters shorter than the stretched five -door version of the former Lada 4×4, which is now legended in Russia as a Niva. The well-known 1.7-liter engine breathes three horsepower here and provides typical NIVA for a decelerated form of locomotion, for which the only 140 km/h top speed stand. That is only three kilometers an hour than in legend. And from zero to 100 km / h offic the traveler officially needs 19.4 seconds. The steering, which is as good as a feedback -free steering, also does not encourage them to do so. The travel can then show it off -road. With permanent all -wheel drive, reduction and the central blocking differential, in connection with the short overhangs and the compact dimensions away from the street does not do anything so quickly. Here the Lada clearly outclasses the Dacia Duster.

Where the Niva is outclassed the Dacia Duster

It is only more favorable in the off-road area with the older brother.Nevertheless, the new Niva also surprises on asphalt. On the one hand, there is the rather comfortable suspension, on the other hand, the surprisingly low level of noise of the somewhat aging construction. Only from about 110 km/h and beyond the 3300 revolutions per minute does it get louder in the Lada, which by the way has a windshield that is clearly curved at the lower corners. The five-speed transmission requires a little reprint, but freaks precisely. A little more courageous can also be stepped onto the brakes, which make the Travel stand up to a look much earlier than the previous 4×4.

Silit catch: Russian cult Lada in the hardware test

The instrument ads and the switches exude the charm of the late 1990s, but are of course also a jump forward compared to the legend. The travel is also more flexible. The rear seat bench can be folded down and, thanks to the high -performance seat cushion, creates a flat loading area of a good 1.20 meters in length. There are holding brackets for the belt bands and bags for the locks and Isofix. We find the middle armrest smartly. If it is folded 180 degrees backwards, she turns into a cupholder for the rear passengers.

The heating really deserves its name

The heating presents itself as usual powerfully. The versions directly introduced from Russia come without air conditioning, but also the German Lada GmbH procures on request. The same applies to the missing rear headrests, which also identify the Niva Travel as a car of the nineties. In any case, one or the other extra is possible by consultation, as well as those mounted on our copy and the infotainment system with optional card navigation and Bluetooth hands-free system show. All of this does not play a major role for the special Lada clientele anyway, Bernd Haack from Marketing knows. Just as little as the consumption. Like the legend, the Niva Travel is a niche vehicle for individualists, real off -road drivers and people who like to be put back in earlier cars without wanting to get an expensive classic car. And by the way, they make a long nose to all soft -washed SUVs.

The new Niva has become plenty of expensive

Unfortunately, the Russian cult has now become much more expensive than before. The exclusive pleasure begins at 17.990 euros in the basic execution. Currently the Russian new addition to the former dealers and the brand’s service workshops can only be found occasionally. The former importer in Buxtehude already have 40 to 50 pre -orders for next year. (Aum/jri)

  1. The author is an alphaier
    Sure, a car that is oversized and therefore comes according to measurement 11.9 liters (in reality … will probably be 15) consumed, but only 140kmh is a car for a man and not for snowflakes. The car is simply technically weak on Def chest and has no new extras (which I personally like). People who buy this car for cheap say afterwards "Thanks Merkel and the refugees" and complain about the high fuel prices.

  2. It must
    Finally, it is abolished that such scrap piles come into the country by acceptance. The car is by no means cheap. Realistic 14-15l consumption per 100 km you have to be able to afford first. And if Cem now makes the minced meat more expensive, it slowly becomes tight.

  3. Auto romance & the reality
    Already as a boy I was a off-road vehicle fan, wg. Daktari. Then I drove a Land Rover with a rental, new car. Tight, rumplic driving behavior, loud, consumption strong and lame. Dream ended. Similar to a Mercedes Pagoda. Looks great, drives itself compared to the modern small car "oh well". If you really need such a work animal, you will be better and cheaper than with many other brands. But only under this requirement. In my new cars, I pay attention to contemporary equipment in terms of comfort and security. And driving fun where I drive. This is not the terrain.

  4. so what ?
    Is that a bad car now ? Just because the box is not 100% online, has no huge touch in it and "just" 1 engine has installed ? There is also a market for that, not everyone needs and wants the whole climb in today’s cars. Costs a lot of money and is prone to errors if it works (Golf8): Incidentally, many of them drive around in the east, all without hybrid or electric. Whether our climate hysterics know that ? On go – there is huge information needs for these topics, provided that one lists there……
