If it goes to the assembly line, then the days of “Arcana” are numbered.
AvtoVAZ promises a bunch of new products by 2026, but the idea of them is rather vague. The editorial staff of the “Let’s Ride!” Portal, relying on the materials of “Yandex.Zen”, told about the LADA Niva Cross Coupe.
Recently, a concept of a premium version of the popular SUV has appeared on the web. The body is made in the same style as the BMW X6. But at the same time, a corporate X-style and headlights from LADA Vesta are seen in the front part. What is behind is unknown, but we dare to assume that the car will be endowed with the same “vestovskiy” lights and a rear bumper.
In the salon of the LADA Niva Cross Coupe, presented in the renders, one can see a digital “tidy” and a large display. The interior itself is stylishly executed and bears little resemblance to typical “VAZ” models. But we assume that Renault Arkana trim may appear inside the coupe-like cross from Lada.
Further, it is worth mentioning the technical component. Under the hood, a 1.3-liter turbo engine with 150 “forces” from the “Arcana” and a 1.6-liter “atmospheric” with 114 “horses” from Duster and Logan may appear. Both will be coupled with a variator. And if you consider that the platform of the car will be from Renault, then you shouldn’t wait for a permanent all-wheel drive, so it’s better not to drive off-road on such a car.
So far, only renders of LADA Niva Cross Coupe are circulating on the Web, but it is quite likely that AvtoVAZ will release a premium, the cost of which will reach up to a million. With this attitude, the car will finally “push” Renault Arkana.
