Orders are now open for the new, locally produced Nissan Navara, set to roll off the production line at Nissan’s Rosslyn plant from June 2021. Thanks to competitive pricing, the modernised line-up is well positioned to compete in most of the one-ton bakkie segments.

 

Keen to provide exceptional customer satisfaction, Nissan has produced an exciting range of models, ensuring that there is a Navara to suit everyone’s needs, whether to empower a business or take your family on an off-road adventure.

 

Priced competitively, the Navara’s innovative technical changes, modernised styling and high-power specs are sure to impress all customers.

The new Navara single cab 2.5-litre DDTi diesel mid-output, with its 2.5 litre dual overhead camshafts, direct injection and turbocharged intercooler diesel boasts 120kW and 403Nm.

 

Significant suspension upgrades

Drivers of the new Navara can expect significantly enhanced balance, superb handling and heightened performance, both on-road and off thanks to the successful combination of a new chassis with revised mountings for less vibration, increased rear ride height, improved shock absorber damping and dual-rate five-link coil spring suspension that has been designed to ensure a comfortable ride across all of South Africa’s spectacular terrains.

 

Real 4x4 ability

Choose two-wheel drive for maximum efficiency or shift to four-wheel drive at speeds up to 100km/h with the Navara’s 4x4 gearbox. The four-wheel drive system constantly monitors conditions and adjusts the balance of power between the front and rear axles to maintain traction, while the Active Brake Slip Differential system manages power delivery and wheel braking between the front and rear axles and between the left and right of the vehicle, depending on traction and speed. Four-wheel drive low range is available for extremely difficult terrain.

 

Improved payload

The Navara’s payload is now 100kg larger, thanks to an increase of 36mm in the front and 64mm in the rear of the height of the load box. An added step to the rear bumper for the SE Plus and LE grades and an easy-lift tailgate and torsion bar on all double-cab derivatives makes loading and unloading easier.

 

Towing is made easier and safer thanks to the Navara’s Trailer Sway Control system, with yaw-rate monitoring, which can detect the trailers self-oscillation, while the Vehicle Dynamic Control system can control the brake pressure of the trailer to reduce self-oscillation.

 

A more refined experience all round

Nissan has invested substantially in improvements to the noise, vibration and harshness reduction for a quiet and comfortable drive, which bears testimony to the improvements made on suspension range and powertrain capability. The Navara line-up also features additional safety technology through Nissan Intelligent Mobility and a host of cabin features including and 8-inch touch screen featuring NissanConnect, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to delight and empower customers.

 

Availability

The Nissan Navara will be available from June, with pricing starting from R311 000 for a 2.5 Petrol XE 4x2 manual single cab and R474 000 for a 2.5D SE 4x3 manual double cab.
