Nissan NP300 wins Best Pick-Up 2016 title​

The newly-launched Nissan NP300 Navara has claimed another title under its belt by being named the Best Pick-Up in the 2016 Diesel Car Top 50 – a list of the 50 best cars on sale today.

More than 200 cars were tested by the Diesel Car judging pane, with thousands more over prior years, creating a definitive ‘Top 50’ list. The Nissan NP300 Navara was the only pick-up included in the list of 50 models.

Ian Robertson, Editor of Diesel Car, commented: “Many manufacturers boast about car-like road manners and don’t deliver, but this latest NP300 Navara delivers it in spades.”

The Nissan NP300 Navara offers the choice of a double cab or king cab and a 190PS twin-turbo or 160PS single turbo version of the new 2.3-litre dCi engine. There’s also the option of a two of four –wheel drive and a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission.

Many of the model’s intelligent safety features, including a number of first-in-class technologies – are featured in the range as standard. This includes Forward Emergency Braking on all double cab models, driver, passengers, side, knee and curtain airbags, electronic Limited Slip Differential, Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control (on 4WD models).

The model’s robust chassis also introduces an array of new features, including an all-new five link rear suspension for the Double Cab model and an impressive load bed, which is 67mm longer than its predecessor.

On receiving the title, Anthony Jones, Navara Product Manager at Nissan Motor (GB), said: “This latest recognition is further evidence that the new NP300 Navara delivers one of the strongest product offerings in the market. Innovative technology, superior on- and off-road capabilities, engine performance and payload capacity, combines with competitive finance and servicing offers make ownership both enjoyable and rewarding.”
