Nissan has unveiled what it describes as a ‘smarter, safer, and connected Navara’ with a host of new features.
The latest Navara has several key changes including a new 6-speed manual gearbox that features longer gear ratios and a shorter shift pattern, providing a less frequent and slicker gear selection. There are also revised alloy wheel designs and the latest connectivity.
Multi-link rear suspension has now been added to the King Cab, making this feature standard on all models. The multi-link rear suspension system has new dual stage coil springs and with a revised set-up, the rear posture is raised by 25mm to give the pickup an upright and more powerful looking stance, whilst continuing to deliver a more comfortable and dynamic ‘car-like’ driving feel.
There is also an increase in braking performance, payload up by 46kg (dependent on model) and more torque available on the 163PS version. 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.
Both outputs now conform to the forthcoming new Euro 6d-temp emission standard. Andrea Patti, LCV category manager at Nissan Motor (GB), said: “The multi-award winning Navara once again sets a new benchmark in the pickup sector, combining the best of Nissan’s crossover leadership with over 80 years’ experience in designing and manufacturing robust and cleverly engineered pick-ups.”
