Beautiful skirts painted in body color in a more expensive configuration, look a bit worse than the black version, which comes in a basic version. At this point, as they say, to each his own.

Despite the rather serious and noticeable changes in the appearance, in the arrangement in the finalization of the 2018-2019 Chevrolet crossover body, yet one question largely determines the fact why actual Niva does not have such popularity as new budget crossovers from the same Renault and Nissan.
2018-2019 Chevrolet Niva , the problem is in the engine compartment. More precisely in the absence of any changes therein. After all, it was obvious that the emergence of a new motor – is the primary task for the manufacturer. However, listen to criticism no one.
What is the result? As a result, we see all the same, have already established almost ten years the engine. Its volume is 1.7 liters, and power – just 80 horsepower. A few years ago there were reports that the engineers of the company Opel develop new, improved motor for Niva, which will give out 122 horsepower. After that, we are talking about the emergence of a diesel powertrain. But in the end nothing has changed. Like its predecessors, in the 2018-2019 Chevrolet Niva was the same old, no longer current engine.
Now there are reports of the imminent release of a brand new 2018-2019 Chevrolet Niva, which is absolutely nothing similar to the current version. Which is good, because all these incremental modernization of special benefit do not bring the model. Of course, the recent modifications brought good changes, improved build quality. But with the engine problems remained.
2018-2019 Chevrolet Niva – it is a good and affordable shopping for those who need a car for trips outside the city, outings, hunting, fishing and so on. And numerous reviews of the owners confirm this. As for the track, it’s not exactly the element Niva. Its 100 kilometers per hour keeps confidently, but with increasing speed starts to behave nervously, and on uneven terrain due back sofa features passengers become uncomfortable.
2018-2019 Chevrolet Niva meets its price segment, for little money gives the customer a lot of pluses. Do not forget that the repair of this crossover will cost much cheaper than those of competitors. However, it is time to retire Cornfield and invite his place a new model, even with the old name. Apparently, it all comes to this.
