Nissan sees no 'negative aspect' to Renault and FCA's merger
Nissan has reportedly rebuffed plans to merge with Renault, but the Japanese automaker is unlikely to oppose the proposed merger between Fiat Chrysler (FCA) and Renault.
"Overall, we don't see any particularly negative aspect," Hiroto Saikawa, Nissan CEO, told reporters (including those from Reuters) after a meeting of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance board.
Everyone’s favourite pioneering Russian SUV, the Lada Niva, turns 40 years old this year - making it just about ready for an update.
Reports this week suggest that Lada’s parent company, AutoVAZ, is finally looking to move the ‘darling of the field’ (Russian translation for Lada Niva) to a new and more modern platform, for launch in 2018.
Russian manufacturer Lada has teased a new SUV concept ahead of its debut at the Moscow International Auto Salon (MIAS) later this month.
Little details have been revealed about the mystery concept, however the company has confirmed that it will show "19 new offerings" at the Moscow motor show, including six concepts.
