ISSAN’S versatile Navara pick-up is to benefit from a number of significant improvements for the 2015 model year. The latest Navara, which is being launched at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover has added safety features, new standard equipment across the range, an upgraded interior trim and new body colours.
Every model in the Navara range now has 17-inch alloy wheels and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) as standard.
Two new metallic body colours – bronze and grey – have been introduced while new trim can be found on SE and LE versions, offering not only improved look and feel but also enhanced quality.
Another significant introduction is the arrival of an SE model powered by a 144hp version of the familiar 2.5-litre dCi diesel engine.
This engine, first seen in the fleet-oriented XE version launched last year, offers an ideal compromise between performance and efficiency. Delivering 144hp, it produces 215g/km of carbon dioxide emissions (7g/km improvement vs 190HP), and the combined fuel economy is 8.2l/100km.
SE equipment provides a number of enhancements over the XE model, with automatic air-conditioning and a combined CD tuner with Bluetooth
