Nizhny Novgorod car dealer PKF Luidor showed another version of the shuttle based on a minivan. The interior of the Sobol-NN has been radically changed: instead of a solid sofa, separate armchairs are installed on the third row, there is only one seat in the second row, rotated 90 degrees, and the cabin is separated by a “limousine” partition with a retractable TV. Climate control has also been added.

Serial GAZ Sobol NN – first impressions

On the outside, the luxury Sobol NN stands out only due to its partial anti-chrome and tinting: the wheels remain standard, the wheelbase remains unchanged. But the interior has been improved: white leather and suede now dominate, the seats now have electrical adjustments, and their profile has been changed. “Luidor” changed the ceiling trim and floor covering, and added window sills with cup holders.

“Louis” “Louis d’or”

Unfortunately, the prices of the five-seater minivan are not publicly available and even a complete list of options is not provided. However, the original passenger Sobol NN from dealers costs from 3.7-3.8 million rubles, and equipped minivans will cost four million rubles. There is currently no alternative to the technology: Russian-Chinese 2.5-liter turbodiesel, domestic 6-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive.

A new Volga that has been sitting in a garage for 20 years is being sold in the Far East.

GAZ Group plans to introduce the all-wheel drive Sobol NN to the market, but for now the start of sales has been postponed, although pre-production copies have been shown for a long time. Probably, the new product will immediately debut with the localized G21 diesel engine, and the intermediate version with the old Cummins engine will not become widespread.
