for more than a year and a half when in the Auto Salon Moscow 2014, we met the prototype of the second generation of the Chevrolet Niva. Since then we had not returned to have news of this crossover destined for the Russian market that is born of a joint-venture between Chevrolet and Lada. The new Chevrolet Niva will replace the first generation of the model, which is on sale since 1998 and will exceed technologically in all aspects.
have been leaked to the network the first two pictures of the Chevrolet Niva, which show its appearance as it will arrive at dealers. Practically does not change anything regarding the prototype presented in Moscow, ignoring some elements of the preparation off-road with which he was presented to the model. The change with respect to its predecessor is absolute, and the Chevrolet Niva adopts a design much more modern and in the front reminds us of the Ford EcoSport.
For the moment, still have to wait to 2016 for the official presentation of the Chevrolet Niva, which has no specific date. In due time we will know more details of the model, such as the mechanical, but what is sure is that the Chevrolet Niva will offer a maximum torque of the engine of petrol of between 1.6 and 1.8 liters, and that will offer system all-wheel drive with low range and locking center differential, .
The prototype had an engine 1.8 source PSA with 135 BHP of power and a manual gearbox of five speeds with an awd system as described above. It is expected a remarkable evolution in terms of consumption and performance with respect to the Niva force, which has the same 1.7 engine 81 HP in the Lada 4×4 (formerly Niva).
