45 Years Later, Lada Is Finally Developing an All-New Niva for 2025

Renault, Lada’s owner, has stated that a new Niva is on the way for 2025


  • The current and original Lada Niva was introduced in 1977.

  • The Niva has undergone very few changes in all this time.


The Lada Niva is a 4×4 icon. For a while, it was available for sale in North America and although it was pulled nearly 25 years ago, it’s still appreciated by fans. Over in Europe and other markets, the Niva carries on under Renault’s large umbrella.

New Lada Niva Confirmed for 2024

Lada, now merged with Dacia, will finally offer a new, that’s an ALL-NEW, Niva come 2025. The current Niva was re-branded Niva Legend last year as a tribute to its status. A Niva Travel version, a leftover from a bygone partnership with General Motors, was updated in 2020.

Last year, news emerged that a new Niva was in the works and that we could expect it in 2024. The latest update has the new Niva landing in 2025 according to Top Gear. The next-generation Niva should ride on the Renault Group’s CMF-B platform and feature a 4×4 system befitting this legend’s legacy.

There’s no hope that the Lada Niva will return to North America, sadly. Renault, on its own, and the subsequent Renault-Nissan Alliance, mulled the idea over to finally decide to not cross Pond.
