The all-new Nissan NP300 Navara aims to set a new benchmark in the one-tonne pick-up sector, combining the best of Nissan’s Crossover leadership with more than 80 years of experience in designing and manufacturing robust and cleverly engineered pick-ups.
The new model is a fully updated version of the previous generation, with a robust and tough chassis which introduces a host of new engineering features designed to further improve driveability and practicality.
The NP300 Navara’s new 2.3-litre dCi engine is up to 24 per cent more efficient than the unit it replaces and is the cleanest and most economical in its sector. Available with two power output options, 118kW and 140kW, the range-topping version introduces twin turbocharging technology, which is the first time for Nissan in this segment and delivers exceptionally low running costs coupled with substantially reduced CO2 emissions.
Knowing that pick-up owners need their vehicles to earn their keep, the NP300 Navara’s load carrying and towing ability across the range is improved. With payload ratings now in excess of one tonne across the range and an impressive towing capacity of 3,500kg, the new NP300 Navara is ready for the toughest and most demanding of jobs or leisure pursuits.
The load bed itself is home to further Nissan innovations in the form of the brand’s acclaimed C-channel load system. With heavy-duty channels on the rear cabin bulkhead and bed sides, owners have complete flexibility when it comes to securing vulnerable loads. Because the clamps slide along the C-shaped channel tracks, even the most unusually shaped load can be secured with ease.
To help owners go further with more, the new Double Cab’s load bed is 67mm longer than the previous model, with a sector-best load bed length of 1,578mm.
