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 Above: The cabin is cramped and outdated by modern standards but an aftermarket infotainment system adds a modern touch.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.
