Nissan has updated the Navara with improved driveability, technology and payload.
Among the key changes, the engine line-up has been revised to meet the Euro 6d-Temp requirements with twin-turbochargers now fitted to both the 163PS and 190PS units.
The lower-powered unit gets a torque boost to 425Nm and a new six-speed manual gearbox features longer gear ratios and a shorter shift pattern, providing a less frequent and slicker gear selection.
Multi-link rear suspension has now been added to the King Cab, making this feature standard on all models.
Safety has been improved with a reduced stopping distance along with a 40% reduction in braking force. This has been accomplished by changing the rear drum brakes to discs along with larger front brake discs.
As a result of these upgrades, maximum payload is increased by up to 46Kg (dependent on model).
Exterior changes include new 17-inch and 18-inch alloy wheel designs and new black bezel inlays to the LED headlamps.
Inside the cab, fitted as standard from N-Connecta grade, is Nissan’s latest generation Nissan Connect entertainment system featuring an eight-inch touch screen and Apple Car Play.
For the first time, the Navara can be located, locked or unlocked from a mobile app. Users can also check vehicle health (fuel and fluid levels) and send their destination to the vehicle’s satnav ahead of departure.
The Nissan Navara is priced from £21,850 (ex VAT) for the 4WD King Chassis Cab Visia, rising to £31,125 for the range topping 4WD Double Cab N-Guard Auto.
