Why this off-road, Russia-only Chevy concept should come to America
The Chevrolet Niva, a mini-SUV produced as a joint venture between GM and Russian automaker AvtoVAZ, is a beige little ute based on a Lada. It’s an incredibly boring car, but the next generation Niva that has just been revealed in concept form at the Moscow auto show, well, that’s not boring at all.
Can you believe that in roughly 1984, this was ok?
Like, someone in charge looked at this and said “yeah, fine, let’s do it. We’ll use the people as guardrails instead of actual guardrails.”
No worries that a 300 horsepower race car was literally inches away from killing dozens of people. It looks badass, so it’s alright.
