    The Lada Niva has gone through many updates over the years both in terms of mechanical and cosmetic aspects. It was initially sold in European markets, but the company had to confine its sales to Russia due to a few sanctions. 

    After a brief halt, the assembly of the SUV resumed in the year 2022. It has got a boost with an engine upgrade and reintroduction of the anti-lock braking system to meet Euro 5 emissions standards. Another Niva family model, the Niva Legends SUV, is also expected to receive a Euro-5 engine. This update could be implemented due to the introduction of new internal combustion engine control units.

    Unfortunately, a few important details, like type and displacement, have not been disclosed about the Lada Niva’s Euro 5 engine upgrade. The SUV is facing component shortages, due to which AvtoVAZ has decided to temporarily utilise Chinese-brand engines. However, detailed information is not available on this aspect.
