The Savanna in GTA San Andreas
(Rear quarter view)
Vehicle type Civilian car
Body style Lowrider
Capacity 4 (driver and 3 passengers)
Appearance(s) GTA San Andreas

The Savanna is a four-door convertible lowrider in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.




Side view of two Savannas modified at Loco Low Co. to feature two forms of tops: "Hard Top" (above) and "Soft Top" (below).

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. The car can be blown up by shooting its rear license plate. 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.



Possible combinations of modifications that can be given to the Savanna at Loco Low Co.

Upgrades can only be made at the Loco Low Co. garage.

Cesar's Savanna

  • 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.

Lowrider Challenges Savanna

  • In the mission Cesar Vialpando, there were 3 uniquely colored Savannas. They are colored Turqoise and White, Red and Turqoise, Light Blue and Red, Yellow and Purple. These cars can also be seen anytime you start the mission Lowrider Challenge.


  • 1962-1964 Impala's which is the based of car, were very popular with Black gangs and rappers throughout the 90's, seen in countless West Coast Rap videos and hood films with the 1964 model widely known as a "64" (Six-Foe).
  • In the beta version of the game, the Savanna had a different front bumper, different wheel design, and was a coupe, resembling the Blade.[1]
  • The name "Savanna" is likely a reference to the Chevrolet Impala, as the animal of that name is found in the savanna biome.
  • The default radio station in the Savanna is Radio Los Santos.
  • If a roof is installed on the car, whether it is a hard top or a soft top, the head of the passenger(s) in the back seat will clip through the roof.
  • Anytime when you start GTA San Andreas, and you see the intro movie, one of the clips shows a Savanna toggling its hydraulics.
  • It is possible to paint stock Savannas and make it the same color like Cesar's Savanna or the Savannas found in the Lowrider challenges.
