Nissan Navara picks up crossover style

New Navara pick-up will arrive in showrooms in January with prices starting from £18,376


Nissan’s new Navara pick-up will arrive in showrooms in January with prices starting from £18,376.

The third-generation model is described as the most refined version of the pick-up yet, with features evolved from Nissan’s mass-selling Qashqai and Juke crossovers, while losing none of its all-terrain ability.

It will be offered in double or king cab versions, with a new 2.3-litre TDI diesel engine in either 157bhp single-turbo or 187bhp twin-turbo variants. Further choices are between two or four-wheel drive and six-speed manual or seven-speed auto gearboxes.

The safety specification is significantly upgraded too and included as standard across the Navara range are driver, passenger, side, knee and curtain airbags; an electronic Limited Slip Differential; Hill Start Assist; Forward Emergency Braking on all double cab models and Hill Descent Control on 4WD models.

Firve trim levels will be on offer – Visia, Acenta, Acenta+, N-Connecta and Tekna. The £18,376 price, which is the commercial rate not including VAT (the on-the-road price being £21,995) buys a Visia with equipment that includes Bluetooth telephone integration,  steering wheel mounted audio controls, an AUX socket for MP3 connectivity, a USB port, three 12v sockets, automatic headlights with ‘follow me home’, and cruise control with a speed limiter.
