Old Audi S6 Challenges Lada Niva In A Tug Of War 8

In the snow, choosing between an old performance-oriented saloon and a high ground-clearance, off-roader should be pretty straight forward.

Then again, you need to factor in weight, tires and performance, and so the second-generation Audi S6 (C5) kind of has the Lada Niva out-gunned when it comes to power and torque.

Powering the S6 C5 is a 4.2-liter V8 engine, pushing down 340 PS (335 HP) and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque to all four wheels. With a kerb weight of just over 1,800 kg (roughly 4,000 lbs), it can also dig in pretty well during a tug of war.

Now, while this Niva seems to be packing a few after market modification, it would have to be something truly special in order to match the Audi in any way.

When stock, the Niva 4×4 only puts down a little over 80 HP, so right off the bat, it doesn’t look like much of a fair fight.

Lada Returns To Cuba With Vesta Sedan And Largus Cross 30

Lada is returning to Cuba, making it the first time since the Russian automaker stopped exporting cars there in 2005.

The return will be launched with an initial shipment of 344 Vesta sedans and Largus wagons, which will be used as local state-owned taxis, tourism and rentals.

The cars will be shipped to Cuba in the coming days and are expected to arrive in the country in January 2018. Since Renault-Nissan took over AvtoVAZ, which owns Lada, the plan for the Russian brand was to increase its exports from 20,000 vehicles in 2016 to almost 200,000 vehicles by 2026.

Sales of cars in Cuba are strictly controlled by the local government and prices remain out of reach for the vast majority of Cubans. The car ownership rate is just 20 per 1,000 residents.

“Cuba, among other Latin American countries, is one of our priority export markets”, said Nicolas Maure, CEO of AvtoVAZ. “This country respects the Lada brand with a significant fleet of classic Ladas and Nivas still on the roads, and today we are ready to renew our presence with our new modern cars Lada Vesta and Lada Largus Cross. They are perfectly adapted to local usage, meeting world-class quality standards and we will provide the necessary aftersales training and spare parts availability.”
