Nissan Navara NP300 2015

All-New Nissan NP300 Navara

The All-New Nissan NP300 Navara sets new benchmarks for toughness, versatility and running costs. Backed by 80 years of global ute know-how, it’s as practical as it is powerful, whether you’re transporting bricks, the kids or your favourite toys – be it your boat, bike or caravan.

There are three 12V power sockets and one USB port (an extra USB port would be nice), decent sized door pockets and six cup holders (not bad for a five-seater), and air-conditioning vents at the rear of the centre console, for back seat passengers.

Other neat touches: the centre section of the back window slides opens at the press of a button in case you need to yell instructions (or take them?) when backing up to a trailer.

And the back seat flips up (as with the current Navara) so you can stow some decent-sized cargo in the safety and security of the cabin. Two small hidden storage areas remain under the back seat. Two new 2.3-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder engines have replaced the previous 2.5-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder engines.

The outputs are almost the same as before, despite being smaller in capacity -- a 118kW/403Nm version and a 140kW/450Nm version. The high-powered version has two turbo-chargers, the low-powered version has a single turbo-charger. Fuel consumption figures are yet to be published but Nissan claims there are savings of up to 20 per cent.

The highly regarded 550Nm twin turbo V6 turbo diesel sourced from Renault has been dropped from the new line-up due to emissions requirements. Matched with the seven-speed auto, it’s a smooth operator and feels like it has more power than the brochure suggests, easily slipping into the right gear to make sure you don’t lose momentum.

The multi-link, coil spring rear end definitely makes the new Navara more comfortable over bumps (we didn’t get to sample the leaf spring model), although it was a little choppy at low speeds on what looked like relatively smooth surfaces.
