Lada Niva continues to make the headlines. Not necessarily here, but in Russia, where he continues his interminable career, he is one of the pillars of Lada’s strategy for 2022. During a press conference on the results for 2021 and the outlook for 2022, the Lada management presented a brand new version of the famous off-roader that promises to sell well. And our colleagues from Motor1 Russia photographed and seen it live.
This is the Niva Travel Black, and enthusiasts may know that spy photos of this special version have been circulating in recent months. It is now ready for its official debut and will go on sale in February.
Dark suit and elegant interior
The characteristics of the Niva Travel Black – which can be chosen in any color on the exterior – are: glossy black 16-inch rims, unpainted arches, matching number plates and a specific interior.
Inside, the seats are covered with diamond patterned fabric and the backrests are decorated with black letters. Curious: the car on display (the one you see in the photos) is not equipped with a passenger airbag.
A growing family
The Black Edition family already exists in Russia and includes the Vesta Cross, XRAY and Niva Legend models. The Niva Travel adds to the family and will be offered in five trim levels.
The Niva Travel comes in five equipment variants, with the cheapest starting at 879,900 rubles (around 10,300 euros at the current exchange rate). The engine is a four-cylinder petrol engine with a displacement of 1.7 liters and an output of 83 hp.
