After seeing the stylish Renault Arkana Concept at the 2018 Moscow Motor Show, it’s now time to focus our attention on yet another model, this time from Lada.
It’s called the 4×4 Vision, and it’s a study with a very bold design that looks pretty much like a Renault/Dacia Duster on steroids. It has the brand’s X-shaped front end, underbody protection and 21-inch rims that don’t look like they belong off the beaten path.
The funky styling is being continued inside, where Lada’s designers used bright orange accents, grey details and aluminum trim. The 4×4 Vision has an infotainment system integrated into the dashboard and flanked by a couple of air vents on each side, dual-zone climate control, digital instrument cluster, ambient lighting, panoramic glass roof and three-spoke multi-function steering wheel.

Unlike the Romanian budget SUV however, the study has an automatic gearbox with high and low ratios, said to come in handy on the off-road, alongside the short front and rear overhangs and generous ground clearance.
Lada doesn’t say what powers the 4×4 Vision, nor if it serves as a preview for the next generation Niva/4×4, but it was inspired by the latter and it’s all about the future.
“We are preparing the future of Lada. With the 4×4 Vision, we demonstrate the potential of a unique, expressive, bold and energetic design in a new SUV, drawing inspiration from the legendary Lada 4×4 Niva”, commented the brand’s Director of Design, Steve Mattin.
