2020 Lada Vision 4×4 SUV – News, Concept & Release Date
The Moscow Motor Show has seen among its protagonists the famous off-road brand Lada, now under the Renault Group, which presented the 2020 Lada Vision 4×4 SUV Concept to replace Niva as a reference economic 4×4 SUV
Lada Niva is one of the emblems of Soviet engineering. The project, born in 1971, wanted to offer the Russian people a car capable of dealing with country life (hence the name Niva, translatable in the field of wheat) without the car could encroach on luxury. Reduced costs to the bone and a mixture between the practical and the reliability that has brought the Lada Niva up to today, with its anachronistic consumption and almost non-existent safety equipment. In the same way, however, the Russian off-road car made its debut in the Seventies with a load-bearing body, four-wheel drive, rear differential lock (three in all, as tradition dictates) and reduced gears independent of locking.
At the Moscow Motor Show, the Renault Group, owner of the Russian brand, presented the Lada Vision 4 × 4 Concept. With futuristic lines and new technical solutions, it will exploit the same base on which Dacia Duster is built to return to the splendor of the past. The Vision 4 × 4 will, in fact, replace the Lada Niva as a model with Spartan equipment, but able to face most of the dangers of off-road. Compared to forty years ago, considering Russia’s ever-increasing commercial power, more attention to detail can be expected.
2020 Lada Vision 4×4 SUV Release Date
At the moment, the Concept shows details that we will see in the production phase, such as four-wheel drive, and others that not all the probabilities will be eliminated with the arrival of the model: we think, for example, the Suicide Doors and the shape of the interior. In any case, Lada Vision is full of expectations thanks to particularly technological interiors strongly desired by project manager Steve Mattin. Still, it is difficult to imagine when we will see Niva’s heir in production, but we can expect concrete development in mid-2019. Meanwhile, in Dacia, the new Duster for 2020 it is also taking shape thanks to this project.
