The all-new Nissan NP300 Navara sets a new benchmark in the one-tonne pick-up sector, combining the best of Nissan’s crossover leadership with over 80 years of experience in designing and manufacturing robust and cleverly engineered pick-ups.
Nissan_Navara_4The all-new NP300 Navara will make its European debut at the Frankfurt Motorshow on 15 September. The introduction of a market-first five year or 160,000 km manufacturer warranty with the new NP300 Navara is further testament to the vehicle’s credentials, and provides additional peace of mind for customers.

Nissan_Navara_5Improving comfort and refinement while maintaining the NP300 Navara’s acclaimed off-road ability, durability and loading capacity, was a cornerstone of the new vehicle’s development. 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 drivability and practicality.

Nissan designed an all-new five-link rear suspension system for the Double Cab model, providing significantly improved ride comfort and improved handling, and is 20 kg lighter than the previous leaf spring layout. The King Cab features a substantially updated version of the leaf spring design fitted to the previous generation model. Not only does the new over slung leaf weigh 7 kgs less than the previous under slung design, it also gives the King Cab a 3.1 per cent improvement in rear wheel approach angle and delivers a reduction in road noise. Nissan_Navara_11Nissan_Navara_3

Every element of the fully re-designed cabin has been optimised to provide the best possible quality, comfort, space and practicality for drivers and passengers. The dashboard assembly has been redesigned from the ground up, with a sculpted appearance that creates increased cabin space and a more open feel. Further features include the dual-zone digital climate control for both King Cab and Double Cab models as well as new rear cab ventilation and seat design, to provide a more comfortable travelling environment for passengers. The new NP300 introduces an array of new in-car technology. Around View Monitor and Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) are unique to the pick-up market. Further safety and convenience features include Cruise Control, Hill Descent Control (HDC) and Hill Start Assist (HSA), as well as keyless entry, rear camera and parking sensors.

Nissan_Navara_10The NP300’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, 118 kW and 140 kW, the range-topping version introduces twin turbocharging technology to the sector for the first time and delivers exceptionally low running costs coupled with substantially reduced CO2 emissions.

Nissan_Navara_12The latest generation of Nissan pickup will launch with the choice of two or four-wheel drive and the option of a standard six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic gearbox. The four-wheel drive system builds on the strengths of the design fitted to the previous generation model, and delivers surefooted traction over rough terrain.

Nissan_Navara_9With payload ratings now in excess of one tonne across the range and an impressive towing capacity of 3,500 kg, the new NP300 Navara is ready for the toughest and most demanding of jobs or leisure pursuits.

Nissan_Navara_6The new Double Cab’s load bed is 67 mm longer than the previous model, with a sector-best load bed length of 1,578 mm. The King Cab’s load bed measures 1,788 mm in length. 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.
