Nissan Navara goes
for a Trek
NISSAN produces some of the best pick-ups around and the latest to be available in the UK, with a limited 400 being offered, is the Nissan Navara Trek-1° - a special version of the double cab model.
It costs £35,065, and is based on the award-winning Tekna grade.
The Trek-1Â° designation comes from the geographical location of the Navarre desert in northern Spain - at -1Â° longitude.
The special Navara is powered by a 2.3-litre dCi 190 diesel engine, which offers fuel economy figures of 44.9 mpg for the six-speed manual and 40.1mpg for the seven-speed automatic, giving CO2 emissions of either 167 or 186g/km depending on the transmission.
All versions offer 'on-demand' four-wheel-drive as standard.
The Trek-1° also includes a number of extras for price of £3,435 above a top-spec Navara Tekna.
Exclusive extras include black sport styling bars, with two forward-facing LED spot lamps attached to the top section.
It also comes with black side styling bars, black 18-inch six-spoke alloy wheels and a new load bed cover. Made from high-grade durable plastic and finished in black or white, the load bed cover is hinged at the end closest to the cab and lifts easily using a single gas strut at either side.
The load cover offers added security, allowing valuables to be secured from view. Beneath the cover is a load bed divider and liner, which keeps loads secure during transportation.
As with all Navara double cab models it is fitted with multi-link rear suspension plus a number of safety technologies including forward emergency braking, vehicle dynamic control, hill descent control and hill start assist.
The Navara Trek-1Â° also has the NissanConnect infotainment system with satellite navigation and DAB digital radio, a 360 degree around view monitor, rear parking sensors, full-sized spare wheel, leather seats, heated front seats and eight-way adjustment on the driver's seat.
