JV «GM-AvtoVAZ” has published official photos of the prototype second-generation SUV 2018-2019 Chevrolet Niva.
Public premiere of a novelty will take place in Moscow tomorrow.
The concept will appear before the visitors MIAS , armed with a snorkel, a rooftop luggage carrier with spare wheel and “chandelier”, motor protection and front axle, as well as off-road tires of the dimension 235/70 / R16.
The styling of the new “Shnivy” became more 2018-2019 Chevrolet, than the “Niva”, which in our subjective opinion car went good.
In the engine compartment of the prototype (exactly like the production version) will house a 1.8-liter petrol “aspirated” by the Peugeot , which develops 135 hp (172 Nm). The engine will be aggregated with a 5-speed manual transmission with GM “razdatkoy” and downshift the transmission to the traction system of permanent four-wheel drive.
As the unit and gearbox will be made in Russia.
In addition, the prototype and the production version of the new generation “Shnivy” will lock the center differential, the traditional longitudinal position of the engine, dependent rear suspension and new front suspension with McPherson struts.
Later coupe can be equipped with front-wheel drive modification with “automatic” , but the diesel variant, most likely, never will.
