Simple and rugged LADA 4×4 Urban gives them a sense of freedom, and prying eyes on the streets collects more than cars of premium class. An elongated body, according to the authors, leaving more space for passengers and cargo, but robs the car of maneuverability. However it should be noted that the tested German. LADA 4×4 are not on the roads for which it is mainly designed, and in the city.
