2016 Chevrolet Niva Engine

When it comes to the powertrain, there is not too much info about this car but what we were able to dig up is pretty much what all the rumors and info say – this car’s powertrain will consist out of only one engine, but it will be a tough one. The engine that will find its way under the hood of this car should be a 1.8 liter four cylinder engine that will be able to produce 135 horsepower. This engine is stronger than the previous 1.7 liter engine and it should bring more power and durability on tough roads. Engine will be paired with 5 speed manual shifter and it will come as a four wheel drive.

2016 Chevrolet Niva exterior

Outside of this car clearly shows what this car is all about. When you have a look on this car you can see it was built for off-road terrains since it has a lot of off-road equipment. With BF Goodrich tires, tow hook, winch, high clearance, a snorkel etc. we can see this car is not just an ordinary SUV. But we said it is built for Russian market, and we know winters can be pretty rough out there so the car has to be tough itself. Black paint, nice lights and big roof rack complete this car’s exterior which looks aggressive. Interior part of this car is not yet shown so we can’t tell you more about that, but we are sure it will be just as modern and impressive as its exterior.
