The new DS3, customise every feature to suit your style
Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin is showing off his new Russian-made SUV, part of his bid to support domestic car makers during Russia's severe financial crisis.
Putin appeared before journalists on Saturday behind the wheel of his new khaki Lada Niva that's produced by Russia's biggest automaker Avtovaz.
A pleased-looking Putin invited reporters to take a ride, according to Russian television footage. Appearing at his Black Sea residence in the Olympic city of Sochi, Putin said he would use the three-door car for fishing trips.
Putin has urged Russians to support domestic producers - especially automobile makers - against foreign competitors as the economy struggles amid the global financial crisis. - Sapa-AP
