SMARTER, safer and better-connected are the claims made by Nissan for its latest, revised range of Navara pick-up trucks.
Key changes include a new 6 speed manual gearbox, revised alloy wheel designs, and the latest in-car connectivity. The King Cab model joins the rest of the Navara range with the addition of multi-link rear suspension as a standard fitting while all models benefit from an increase in braking performance, higher payloads up by 46kg dependent on model and more torque available for models fitted with the 163PS version of the 2.3 dCi engine.
The 163PS 2.3 dCi engine is now fitted with two turbo-chargers, similar to the higher powered 190PS version, to produce 425Nm of torque, up 22Nm from the previous version. Completing the powertrain improvements is an all-new six-speed manual gearbox that features longer gear ratios and a shorter shift pattern, providing a less frequent and slicker gear selection.
Safety has been improved with a reduced stopping distance along with a 40 per cent reduction in braking force thanks to the adoption of rear disc brakes along with larger front brake discs. Trailer Sway Assist is now incorporated into the whole range.
Exterior upgrades include new 17" and 18" alloy wheel designs and new black bezel inlays to the LED headlamps.
Nissan's latest generation entertainment system is fitted as standard from N-Connecta grade upwards, featuring an eight-inch touch screen and Apple Car Play and smartphone integration.
Prices start at £21,850 excluding VAT for the 4WD King Chassis Cab Visia 6 Speed Manual, rising to £31,125 ex VAT for the range topping 4WD Double Cab N-Guard 7 Speed Auto.
