The Nissan Navara is one of the best all-around utility vehicles to hit Mzansi shores – all thanks to its bold and distinctive style, heavy-duty independent double-wishbone with stabiliser front suspension and Leaf spring rear suspension that gives it superior off and on-road performance, best-in-class technology and segment-first features.
All of these are perfectly blended with exemplary performance levels and capabilities to create a truly South African vehicle that suits a diverse range of driving needs and lifestyles.
Below are some of the reasons why it is one of our most beloved bakkies:
The latest Nissan Navara range boasts a new and improved engine, described by journalists as “an engine powerhouse”.
The 2.5 Turbo diesel produces up to 140 kW and 450 nm of torque, and the petrol variant up to 120 kW and 403nm of torque tied to a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic transmission.
The Nissan Navara also has the best fuel consumption in its category, with the best-combined fuel economy being 7.1 litres per 100 km.
Additional engine modifications include speed-sensitive power steering, an independent double-wishbone front suspension and a 5-link coil spring rear suspension.
The PRO-4X, however, has Bilstein monotube shocks optimised for off-road performance and a rear-suspension stabiliser bar. It also offers a generous ground clearance of 221 mm with much-improved approach and departure angles to navigate almost any terrain.
