The Nissan Navara really is the best 4x4 by far, according to 4x4 Magazine Awards, the market-leading publication for automotive off-roading, naming it ‘Pick-up of the Year’.

With an incredibly high level of capacity and practicality, the Navara has shown just why it’s such a popular choice with it’s extremely high work ethic.

The Navara has always been one of the best pick-ups on the market and has recently undergone a comprehensive set of technical updates for the current model year, taking it further than ever before.

The facelifted Navara looks much like it did before, yet do not be fooled. Inside that deceptively familiar exterior lies a revised engine, a sublime new manual gearbox, improvements to brakes, suspension and steering. In fact, it’s stronger in almost every area.

Andrea Patti, LCV manager at Nissan Motor (GB) commented; “We’re absolutely delighted by this prestigious award for the Nissan Navara. Thanks to a combination of improved comfort, performance and rugged capability, the latest updates reinforce Navara’s position as the ultimate working tool”.

Also to be embraced as part of the Navara’s updates is the NissanConnect Services app, featuring a telematics control unit and built-in 4G device that allows data to be shared without a separate phone connection. Embedded Tom Tom maps combine with over-the-air updates to ensure mapping is accurate in real time, alongside live traffic information, 3D maps, weather information and Google Satellite and Street View.

A more efficient engine, all-new six speed manual transmission and upgraded suspension improve the ride, handling and comfort of the Navara. The revised suspension also increases the payload capacity, and, thanks to Intelligent Trailer Sway Assist technology, towing has never been so confident.
