Lada Niva

Recommended Posts

We had them as pool cars in Kazakhstan. We also had Landcruisers, Hilux and Discoveries.

When the snow melted and the muddy season came around the Niva was the only one never to get stuck.

I went on a driving experience at Land Rover's test track where they tested their products and all their rivals  products. They had a section so tough that only two cars could get round, Disco and Defender, oh, and the Lada Niva van they used for running parts round the site.

That's a pretty good recommendation. I still don't want one. My mate with the Ladas, well we had to visit him in a Landcruiser, as he lived in the middle of fuck all in Wales without electricity.

I'd love to have one of those but it's LHD only so no.

There is yet another worrying sign in that website that we are going to be losing our cars and sooner than we expect:

You get in the other door for LHD vehicles. Saves arse injury from the snooker ball gear lever.

I think the guy who imports Nivas to Blighty actually registered on this site. Just one or two posts. 

:/ I'm sure I saw his name when the subject of these fabulous cars was raised in an old thread. 

Edit: here's the thread. He posted on 18th March.

you don't need a 4x4 you just need to be able to drive proper, a 205 can do anything a Land Rover can do :P

 

Lightweight FWD cars are usually good off road. The bloke in the video needs to learn to left foot brake rather than using both feet on the accelerator
