The new locally produced Nissan Navara is filled with technology yet remains a rugged bakkie. The ride quality has been significantly improved. Instead of the Nissan leaf suspension, it has a dual-rate five-link coil suspension which gives it a ride quality that is similar to that of an SUV. And we all know how much South Africans love their SUV’s. The Nissan Navara allows you to have the comfort and technology of a premium SUV yet still provides an aggressive ruggedness that cannot be matched by its competitors in the bakkie segment.
The Nissan Navara comes in several powertrains. The most popular variants are powered by a 2.5-litre turbo petrol engine. The SE and XE models have 120 KW of power and 403 Nm of torque. While the LE and PRO models have 140 kW and 450 Nm of torque respectively. The engines on all models are quieter and more refined than their predecessors.
Thanks to a 3 Billion Rand investment from Nissan SA, the Rosslyn plant in Pretoria has been equipped with the infrastructure to produce the new Nissan Navara locally for the local market as well as for export markets.
The steering of the Navara feels incredibly light and precise, which makes it easier to manoeuvre in any situation.
The infotainment screen has been updated which now allows much more connectivity such as Apple Carplay and Android Auto. It is also equipped with 4 USB ports and a 12V power outlet. The LE and PRO derivatives come equipped with a host of new safety features such as automatic emergency braking, high-beam assist, rear cross-traffic alert and forward-collision alert. The PRO-2X and PRO-4X models have a 360-degree camera system, navigation and rear privacy glass.
This makes the new Nissan Navara a game-changer within its segment. It can be used as a utility double cab to pick up any workload, however, it can also be used as a vehicle to make a statement. To be the boss of the road. It is like no other. It provides the comfort and luxury of an SUV yet the ruggedness of a double cab that can take on any terrain.
