GAZelle Next has been produced since 2013, but its development began back in 2006, it was then that they were made previously published sketches. The first option, the render of which we made, is quite different from the serial car. It has a more angular front with a tapered hood and stampings over the front wheel arches, as well as an almost vertical grille. The headlights have a similar shape, but are installed much lower. Mirrors are located on one leg, the front side windows have a beveled corner, and the door handles are in the recesses behind the doors. The sidewalls of the body are simple in execution, only one wide horizontal stamping stands out at the bottom.
The second option is more similar to the current GAZelle Next, but there are many differences. The headlights are also similar in shape to the production model, while they are larger in height. The trapezoidal radiator grill has more horizontal horizontal bars. The unpainted front bumper smoothly goes into the lining on the wheel arches and sills, also made of unpainted black plastic. The front doors have larger windows with a significant lowering of the window sill in the area of the side mirrors. The sides also have only one stamping along the entire length, but its shape and location are somewhat different.
Today, the GAZelle Next minibus is offered with two engine options. The most affordable – gasoline UMP Evotech 2.7 with 107 hp for 1,400,000 rubles. There is a diesel 150-horsepower modification 2.8 (Cummins ISF), which is estimated at 1,540,000 rubles.
Recall that in the beginning of autumn a new generation Gazelle prototype with the NN index was presented, which received a different “filling”, additional equipment and an updated look.
