The Savanna is a four-door convertible lowrider in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
Being a lowrider, the Savanna can be used in the lowrider competion if hydraulics are equipped. It is a four-door, making it rather suitable for drive-bys and transporting gang members. Like the Hermes, it cannot be blown up by shooting the fuel cap, as it does not have a visible fuel cap.
The Savanna is based on a 1964 Chevrolet Impala with the rear resembling a 1963 Chevrolet Biscayne. In beta screenshots, however, the front of the Savanna resembles a '63 Impala. While normally appearing with only an open top, the car can be modified in Loco Low Co. to feature a permanent hard-top or a soft convertible roof.
Grove Street Families uses the Savanna as one of their gang cars.
The Savanna's main merit is its speed, with quite good acceleration to complement this. However, cornering is poor due to the car being heavy and bulky. Like the Blade, the car's brakes are very sensitive, giving it very responsive stopping power at any speed. However, the driver risks spinning out in handbrakes turn.
Cesar Vialpando owns a bright red Savanna with red seats. Hydraulics are a randomity in the missions it appears in, as with all Savannas. The license plate reads "LVA4L" (like Sweet's license plate reads GROVE4L), standing 'Los Varrios Aztecas For Life', referring to the Varrios Los Aztecas, Cesar's gang.
