Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Rough, tough, rugged and chunky to drive, the Lada Niva won’t appeal to sophisticated SUV drivers – it feels like a car from the past. Unsurprisingly, the UK importer is targeting the agricultural market, offering it as an alternative to a second-hand Land Rover Defender. With a two-year warranty and a whole load of old-school appeal, it has a certain charm – although its best days are long behind it.

This really is a Lada Niva, and you can buy it new for less than £10,000! Although you would be forgiven for thinking it died years ago, Russia’s favourite 4x4 is still in production, and it’s being imported to the UK again for the first time since 1997.

The interior is basic and not terribly comfortable, while there are three simple levers sprouting from the transmission tunnel to control low/high ratios, the diff lock and the five-speed box.
Space is in short supply in the rear, and the LPG tank takes up most of the luggage bay. Yet despite these drawbacks, the Niva appeals with its old-fashioned honesty, plus its off-road ability

But the car is accomplished in mud and gravel, and the short wheelbase, high ground clearance and torquey engine ensure only the roughest terrain will stop it.

Its compact size and a 4 wheel drive are the qualities of LADA 4х4 that are important in any city, both in old curving streets and on crowded avenues.

Other traits that cannot leave a city person indifferent are comfort and original style. We took into account these wishes and created LADA 4х4 Urban.

Number one in the list of options for the city is an air conditioner. An effective conditioning system quickly creates a comfortable temperature in a compact cabin of LADA 4х4 Urban, and a pleasant freshness stays longer thanks to sunscreen glasses

The observability is improved thanks to power heated exterior mirrors and a bigger cleaning zone of the back window

A more strict black covering replaced chrome on door knobs and window seals

The Niva has impressive off-road credentials thanks to steep attack and departure angles, as well as a low-ratio gearbox and locking centre differential. However, as soon as its wheels touch Tarmac, the problems start

Faster trips are more fraught affairs because the engine doesn't really have the power to make cruising pleasurable, and overtaking on the motorway requires a lot of forward planning.

The Niva is available only as a left-hand drive, three-door hatchback, so isn't the easiest car to live with. True, the dashboard is simple enough principally because there's almost nothing on it but fit and finish feel like they're from another century, and some of the plastics have an alarmingly flimsy feel.

Still, at least the weak performance perfectly compliments the Niva's poor ride and road holding. The ride is unsettled and there's severe body roll when cornering. The steering is reasonably light, but it's also slow and numb

Although based on an existing design, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is an all-new plug-in hybrid vehicle.We think it's worth springing for the GT trim once you figure in a standard federal tax rebate for plug-in hybrid vehicles.

PROS
Delivers plug-in SUV utility without luxury SUV price
Offers a generous list of standard features
Sophisticated all-wheel drive offers stability on slippery surfaces
Generous warranty coverage

CONS
Limited Mitsubishi dealer network
Lower ground clearance hinders off-road ability
Regular fuel economy is underwhelming
Small gas tank limits overall range

Mitsubishi’s technology flagship, the Outlander plug-in hybrid, has arrived in the United States nearly five years after it was originally due. The vehicle itself might look rather dated (as does the rest of the Outlander lineup), but the technology within is most definitely not.

Pros
Drives electric (mostly),
speedy fast charging,
two AC outlets
comfortable ride,
quiet cabin.

Cons
Antiquated design,
queasy on the back roads,
cheap-feeling cabin materials,
off-canter engine revs.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a roomy SUV that’s very economical for short journeys if you can plug it in to charge the battery – it’s just a shame it looks a bit drab and doesn’t drive that well

Pros
Cheap to run on short journeys
Quiet around town
Roomy back seats

Cons
Terrible infotainment system
Unsettled on bumpy roads
Drab interior
