New Nissan Navara NP300 revealed

The vehicle is all-new, with a robust and tough chassis that introduces a host of new engineering features designed to further improve drivability and practicality.

The introduction of a five year or 100,000 mile manufacturer warranty with the new Navara is further testament to the vehicle’s credentials, and provides additional peace of mind for customers.

New technology includes an Around View Monitor and Forward Emergency Braking (FEB). Further safety and convenience features include Cruise Control, Hill Descent Control (HDC) and Hill Start Assist (HSA), as well as keyless entry, a rearview camera and parking sensors.

Nissan has designed an all-new coil-sprung five-link rear suspension system for the Double Cab model, providing significantly improved ride comfort and handling, plus it is 20kg lighter than the previous layout.

The dashboard assembly has been redesigned, with a sculpted appearance that creates increased cabin space and a more open feel. Spinal Support front seats offer improved ergonomics, and have been engineered using technology inspired by NASA.

Additional features include dual-zone digital climate control, as well as a new rear cab ventilation and seat design.

The Navara’s new 2.3-litre dCi engine is available with two power output options - 160PS and 190PS, the range-topping version introduces twin turbocharging technology to the sector for the first time and delivers exceptionally low running costs and substantially reduced CO2 emissions.

The latest generation Navara NP300 launches with the choice of two or four-wheel drive and the option of a standard six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic gearbox. It has payload ratings in excess of one tonne across the range and a towing capacity of 3,500kg.

The new Double Cab’s load bed is 67mm longer than the previous model. The King Cab’s load bed measures 1,788mm in length.

Euro 6 Navara launched

Claimed economy for the Euro6 Navara peaks at 46.3mpg for two-wheel drive versions and 44.8mpg for four-wheel drive models. CO2 emissions are lower too, starting from 1 59g/km. All models get cruise control, speed limiter, Bluetooth phone connectivity and steering wheel mounted audio controls as standard.

The Navara keeps its comprehensive five-year/100,000 miles warranty, one-tonne payload capacity and 3.5 tonne braked towing limit. The car-like, five-link coil rear suspension set-up is unchanged too, which means the Navara retains its excellent ride quality. However, the NP300 is dropped from the name, with Nissan claiming the letters and digits proved confusing for dealers.

Nissan launches limited edition Navara Trek-1° pick-up

The double cab Navara Trek-1° is powered by a twin-turbo 2.3-litre diesel engine, with 160PS or 190PS. Both engines are linked to a six-speed manual gearbox and return an official 44.9mpg. A 190PS automatic is also available, although this cuts claimed economy to 41.0mpg. All models get four-wheel drive as standard.

Available with metallic black or pearl white paint, the Navara Trek-1° gets black roof mounted LED spotlights. black side bars and - yep, you've guessed it - black 18-inch six-spoke alloy wheels.

Important 2019 updates for Navara

The latest Navara receives several key changes. These including a new six- speed manual gearbox, revised alloy wheel designs, and the latest in-car connectivity.

Multi-link rear suspension has been added to the King Cab, making this feature standard on all models. At the same time critical utility vehicle features improve with an increase in braking performance, payload up by 46kg (dependent on model) and more torque available on the 163PS version. With a revised set-up, the rear posture is raised by 25mm. As a result, Navara’s payload also increases by up to 46kg, dependent on model.

The 163PS 2.3 dCi engine is now fitted with two turbo-chargers, similar to the higher powered 190PS version, to produce 425Nm of torque, up 22Nm from the previous version. Both outputs now conform to the forthcoming new Euro 6d-temp emission standard. Completing the powertrain improvements is an all-new six-speed manual gearbox that features longer gear ratios and a shorter shift pattern, providing a less frequent and slicker gear selection.

Safety has been improved with a reduced stopping distance along with a 40 per cent reduction in braking force. This has been accomplished by changing the rear drum brakes to discs and callipers along with larger front brake discs (+4mm) and an increase to the boosters size (+1”). Trailer Sway Assist is now incorporated into the whole range.

Exterior upgrades include new 17 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 8-inch touch screen and Apple Car Play, offers owners the latest in-car connected technology. New features include smartphone integration, with customers able to locate the vehicle, lock/unlock the vehicle, check vehicle health (fuel and fluid levels) and send their destination to the vehicle’s satnav ahead of departure.

  • Tough: enhanced capability thanks to upgraded suspension and increased payload
  • Smart: new on-board and in-app technologies delivered through NissanConnect infotainment system
  • Efficient: Euro6D-temp twin-turbo engine mated to all-new manual transmission
  • On sale now across Europe

July 2019

Further improvements announced for Nissan Navara.

Six speed manual transmission. Upgraded suspension for heavier payloads with Intelligent Trailer Sway Assist technology for towing. Rear disc brakes are now standard for improved stopping power.

The more efficient twin turbo 2.3 litre 4 cylinderengine offers fuel economy up to 40.9mpg (NEDC-back translation Combined Cycle) and emissions now starting from 182g CO 2 per km. Choice of two outputs offering 163PS/ 425Nm or 190PS respectively. The entry level engine also sees a 22Nm boost in torque to 425Nm. Engine features steel pistons and Diamond-Like Carbon Coating to piston rings, as well as a lower compression ratio of 15.1. Fuel injection pressure has increased from 2000 to 2200 bar with a new pump, for more precision and efficiency. Cooling system updated and a new exhaust system integrates Diesel Particle Filter (DPF) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technologies.

All-new six speed manual transmission manufactured in Europe. Major improvement in ease of shifting and refinement thanks to cable operation, adoption of a shorter gear lever, enhanced synchronisation and reduced vibration. Also features a more conventional shift pattern, with reverse gear next to first, and new ratios for improved fuel efficiency and lower noise levels for highway driving. Also been further tuning of alternative 7-speed automatic with improvements to refinement and responsiveness.

The Navara features the second generation of the SUV-like 5-link coil spring rear suspension, providing better comfort and control without compromising capability. Improved comfort and control without compromising on load hauling. King Cab sees an increase in payload to 1,165kg (and Permissible Total Weight of 3,200kg). The Double Cab meanwhile sees a payload increase to 1,115kg – 1,180kg and a Permissible Total Weight of 3,250kg.

Front suspension modifications reduce steering effort, with lighter and more comfortable handling in low-speed manoeuvring. 25mm lift in rear suspension and 2-stage coil springs enhance the vehicle posture.

Front disc brakes now 320mm, with rear brakes now featuring 308mm discs in place of drums. As well as improved stopping distances, this has also enhanced pedal feel and fade resistance, reduced noise levels and makes it easier to obtain maximum performance, with a 40% reduction in pedal force required.

Intelligent Trailer Sway Assist anticipates trailer sway by detecting yaw in the vehicle and making minute corrections in individual wheel braking and torque reduction to bring the vehicle and trailer back under control. Intelligent Emergency Braking, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control and Intelligent Around View Monitor are again included.

Inside, new NissanConnect with Alliance In-Vehicle Connectivity (A-IVC). NissanConnect infotainment system allows customers to mirror their phone inside the cab, displayed on a new 8” high resolution clearer screen with multi-touch control and faster response times.

The app also includes remote horn and light control and remote vehicle locator. System is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Wheel size has also been increased from 16 to 17 inches on lower grades.

Higher grade models feature updated LED headlamps with a high gloss black inner shell.
