The Lada (AvtoVAZ) Niva arrived on the Russian market in 1977. The first phase of the small 4x4 was produced for almost 20 years. This puncture-proof vehicle with its impressive crossing capabilities for a vehicle of its size is a figurehead of Soviet know-how. It is very popular in Russia, which is why it can be found "На Всех Дорогах Страны" (on every road in the country). Uncommon in Western Europe, the Niva has made its revolution with the internet and is becoming increasingly popular outside Russia in the past few years.
