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.

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.

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, to give 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.
