Key Features of the Nissan Navara


The Nissan Navara combines reliability with unique and distinctive design features on which Nissan have built their reputation. There are a number of different models available in the Navara range. Each has its own advantages within its price range and trim.

The Navara boasts a 2.5 litre diesel engine which is the most powerful in this class of pickup. Providing it with more than substantial towing capabilities and a payload of 1,000kgs. The flatbed is fitted with unique adjustable heavy duty anchorage points enabling fragile and awkward shaped loads to be securely fastened during transit.

Tough and mean looking the Nissan Navara has a distinctive body shape which incorporates

front and rear crumple zones. These have been designed to provide additional resistance and protection to passengers. Nissan have used an F-Alpha ladder chassis made from high tensile steel to provide extra durability without the weight.

ABS is fitted as standard, used in conjunction with the revolutionary Electronic Breakforce Distribution EBD provides maximum breaking efficiency. Alloy wheels are available as standard on SE models.

Five people can be comfortably seated in the Navara. The second row folding seats provide additional interior storage space. Fully adjustable driver and front passenger seat provides a comfortable driving position. The models also have tilt adjustable steering columns to provide additional driving comfort.

The Adventura comes with many additional comforts which you would expect from a top of the range model. The voice activated Birdsview satellite navigation system is mounted on the stylish central section of the console. Leather seating which is electronically adjustable and heated are also included. Door mirrors are also electronically adjustable and come as standard with the Adventura. This model is the only Navara model which is available with automatic transmission. A six speed gear box is fitted as standard.

Each Navara model has a whole host of different key safety features. The top of the range models are fitted with active head restraints, these have been proven to reduce the severity of neck injuries if the vehicle is involved in an accident. Side and curtain air bags are also included with the top range models. These provide the all important extra safety barrier when the vehicle is involved in side impact collisions. Basic models have dual front air bags and standard head restraints.

An impressive 33.2mpg makes this powerful pickup an affordable option which is ideal for domestic, personal or work use. It is an impressive vehicle which is classy and yet very tough. The off-road handling is second to none. Selectable four wheel drive and a low ratio gear box provides the Navara with the ability to drive across rugged and challenging terrains effortlessly.

It is well worth taking a Nissan Navara for a test drive. It may not be possible to go off-road during the test drive but it is worth asking the dealership to take the vehicle on as many different road types as possible. You will then be able to appreciate the spacious and well equipped interior as well as overall road performance and handling.
