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
