Segment: Small

Also known as the Lada Riva, the 1500, the Signat or the Laika, the Nova is a medium sedan first built in 1980.

Like many other cars produced by AvtoVAZ, it was based on Fiat technology, beig a restyled version of the Lada 2101. The car came in three options, the sedan (VAZ 2105), the estate (VAZ 2104) and the deluxe saloon (VAZ 2107). There weren't many mechanical changes from its "donor" vehicle, the Fiat 124. It has the same engine, suspension and transmission, with aluminum brake drums in the rear. The only improvement came in 1990 when fuel injection and catalytic converter were introduced
