Nissan has released details of UK pricing and specification levels for the new NP300 Navara pick-up, which will replace the current Navara when it goes on sale in January 2016.
Prices for the NP300 Navara will start from £18,376 +VAT and there will be five trim levels, Visia, Acenta, Acenta+, N-Connecta and Tekna. All models will get a 5-year warranty as standard.
Visia and Acenta models will be available with a choice of King Cab or Double Cab, but from the Acenta+ trim level upwards, only double cabs will be available.
Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive variants are available, as is a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearboxes with the more powerful 190PS engine — although the automatic is a £1,700 option.
Here’s a summary of what each specification level will have to offer.
Visia (from £18,376 +VAT)
The entry-level Visia is most likely to be specified as a corporate or agricultural workhorse, rather than a personal vehicle. As a result, it features plenty of black plastic rather than chrome and painted trim.
However, Nissan hasn’t skimped on safety and the majority of the NP300’s new safety features are standard across the range, including on the Visia. These include Forward Emergency Braking on all double cab models; driver, passenger, side, knee and curtain airbags; electronic Limited Slip Differential (eLSD); Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control (on 4WD models).
Power is provided by the 160PS single-turbe version of Nissan’s new 2.3-litre dCi engine.
Acenta (from £19,834 +VAT)
Opting for the Acenta provides customers with 16″ alloy wheels, some chrome trim and a 5″ colour screen with which to manage the onboard entertainment. Buyers also get an engine start button but the engine it controls is still the lower-powered 160PS model.
Acenta+ (from £22,084 +VAT)
Drivers looking for more oomph may want to opt for the Acenta+, which comes with the twin-turbo 190PS version of the 2.3-litre dCi. This offers a chunky 450Nm of torque, compared to 403Nm for the 160PS model.
The Acenta+ also includes 18″ alloys, automatic air conditioning with dual zone climate control, a reversing camera, side steps, electric folding heated door mirrors and rear privacy glass.
N-Connecta (from £22,793 +VAT)
The N-Connecta trim level is all about enterainment. The onboard system is built around the NissanConnect 2.0 7” touchscreen satellite navigation and entertainment system. This incorporates features including DAB digital radio, a rear colour reversing camera, Bluetooth audio streaming, app integration and live traffic updates.
Tekna (from £24,293 +VAT)
Prices for the range-topping Tekna model start at £24,293 +VAT. For this, you get a leather interior, heated front seats, LED headlights and Nissan’s Around View Monitor, which uses cameras to give the drive a bird’s eye view of the car.
