The all-new Nissan NP300 Navara is the 12th generation of its hard-working pickup, embodying Nissan's legacy of excellence and trust in this highly demanding segment, and now with new levels of comfort, convenience and advanced technologies. 

Backed by Nissan's 80 years of global pickup truck know-how and legendary reliability, the NP300 Navara meets the needs of demanding individuals and business owners alike.

The all-new model boasts highly competitive fuel economy, improved acceleration and easier operation, a more rigid and durable frame, as well as modern yet tough and strong design.

The new Nissan NP300 Navara achieves lower overall running costs through a combination of improvements in powertrain performance and a reduction in body mass. Exterior refinements include a reduction in roof height and higher ground clearance, as well as a larger loading area

The Nissan NP300 Navara will be represented by a wide range of body types and powertrain options when it goes on sale locally early next year. Narrow- and wide-body types, king and double cab models, as well as all-wheel drive and two-wheel drive types will underpin the comprehensive all-new Navara catalogue.

Occupants will feel the clear influence of Nissan's SUV leadership in the new Navara, through the intuitive ergonomic design and use of high quality materials, and thanks to easier ingress and egress as well as improved refinement and visibility. 

Overall, the interior is spacious and comfortable, offering convenience for hard-working entrepreneurs and the quiet relaxation of a well isolated space for family journeys. The material selection and elaborate treatment such as double stitching fully express its high quality and sophistication.

"Since we built our first pickup in 1933, over 14 million customers around the globe have come to depend on a Nissan pickup to transport their families, workmates and cargo, sometimes in the toughest of circumstances, "explained Andy Palmer, Nissan's Chief Planning Officer. "Nissan pickups are often the lifeblood of their communities, and they need a broader range of abilities than almost any other vehicle. Engineering a good one isn't easy, but with the NP300 Navara, we've added to our accumulated 80 years of Pickup know-how, more comfort, convenience and SUV-inspired features, in-order to build a great one."

"The Nissan New NP300 Navara sets new benchmarks for performance, toughness, versatility and running costs; all the qualities that are critical for pickup users," adds Palmer

While life-on-board is comfortable and convenient, the NP300 Navara has been designed and developed to easily and confidently handle heavy loads, while allowing ease of loading and unloading. 

Underneath, the NP300 Navara's high-strength chassis and suspension have been engineered to take the punishment of intense daily usage, reflecting the expectations of pick-up customers around the world. Among the other improvements to the NP300 Navara's characteristics are a reduced turning circle, reflecting the importance of agility and manoeuvrability in city driving.

Overall, the new Nissan NP300 Navara provides fleet and individual owners improved productivity in the field and comfort on the road. This is thanks to the high quality engineering that has delivered a tough and durable frame along with a range of high performance powertrains, all wrapped in a striking design inside and out for a premium ownership experience.

"We are confident that the all-new Nissan NP300 Navara will go straight to the top of pickup buyers' shopping lists in all of the markets where we will sell it," said Andy Palmer. "It's combination of striking looks, efficient performance, robustness and durability will allow owners to work and play harder - enriching their daily lives. The NP300 Navara continues the legacy of Nissan's long pickup history and, like all Nissan models; it will deliver excitement through innovation."
