AvtoVAZ has repeatedly stressed that it does not officially supply its cars to the European market. This decision is due to the fact that all Lada do not yet meet the recently toughened environmental standards of the European Union. However, today some Russian-made models can be purchased in Europe.
Standard Lada Niva Legend
So, in Germany, a new version of the Lada Niva Legend SUV appeared - 50th Anniversary Limited (photo: instagram.com/rci_news). It is timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the appearance of AvtoVAZ vehicles on the local market. This modification of the SUV has a slightly redesigned body and noticeably increased ground clearance. In particular, a plastic strip with cutouts is placed on the hood for additional airflow in the engine compartment. The wheel arches and sills are covered with a wide body kit. In addition, the Russian model is combined with a winch, special footrests and LED headlights.
Model performed by 50th Anniversary Limited
It is reported that a total of 50 units of this Niva Legend will be produced. Nothing is known about the technical characteristics of this model. But the developers have published the prices for it: in terms of the current exchange rate, an SUV costs about 1.7 million rubles in Germany.
Lada Niva Legend turned out to be 500 thousand rubles cheaper, which was processed by the Togliatti company "Super-Auto". She installed the 1, 8-liter, 122-horsepower engine found on the Vesta today in the SUV. Moreover, this unit is combined with the previous 5-speed "mechanics" and standard all-wheel drive. The SUV in this version has retained the previous set of onboard equipment. However, the increase in power has led to the fact that Niva Legend now takes only 12 seconds to accelerate to 100 km / h. The company "Super-Auto" announced that it intends to release no more than 300 copies of an SUV with a more powerful engine. The exact date of the start of sales is still unknown.
Also recently, AvtoVAZ published official prices for the updated Niva Bronto. At the same time, accepting pre-orders started back in mid-July. The updated Niva Bronto in the initial version is estimated at 917, 9 thousand rubles. That is, this modification of the SUV turned out to be about 250 thousand rubles more expensive than the initial version.

Niva Bronto is distinguished by reinforced springs and shock absorbers, a stronger rear axle and increased ground clearance of up to 240 mm. The car in this version is complemented by a new plastic body kit and tires with large tread.
