The Lada Nadezhda or VAZ-2120 "Nadezhda" ("Hope", also a Slavic female name) is a seven-person four-wheel-drive minivan, produced by the Russian automaker AvtoVAZ in 1998-2006.

The VAZ-2120 was the first minivan produced by the Russian auto industry and was based on the VAZ-2131 Niva line of sport utility vehicles. Built in small numbers, it was not met with commercial success and the production dropped down to 1,500 units before it was cancelled in 2006 due to low demand in the Russian market.[1]

The companies Motorica and Super-Avto, two AvtoVAZ subsidiaries located in Tolyatti, produce the Nadezhda on demand.[2]
