The all-new Nissan NP300 Navara has won the 2016 international pick-up of the year award at a ceremony in Lyon, France.
Nissan’s pick-up fought off competition from the Mitsubishi L200 and Ford Ranger with judges praising its superior on-road and off-road capabilities, strong engine performance and payload capacity.
The NP300 Navara underwent the rigorous International Pick-up testing process, with each vehicle being judged for its off-road ability, on-road performance and its value for money.
They were also tested on their ability as a workhorse, which included comparing towing capabilities.
Philippe Guérin-Boutaud, corporate vice-president of Nissan LCV BU, said: “This prestigious award celebrates Nissan’s 80 years of pick-up expertise.
"Rigorous testing by international pick-up of the year jurors illuminated the tough and innovative character of the all-new Navara.”
