Main: With the op­tional ac­ces­sory pack­age the NP300 looks like it be­longs on a farm, or on some off-road track. Above: The cabin is cramped and out­dated by mod­ern stan­dards but an af­ter­mar­ket in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem adds a mod­ern touch. The gear­box is a high­light. The driv­e­train is old-school cool and there’s a sec­ond gear lever for the trans­fer case. The lack of a rear locker ul­ti­mately lim­its the 2.5dCi’s of­froad prow­ess, but it man­ages to tra­verse most tracks the av­er­age user will re­quire it to con­quer.
