Road Trip - - READY ROAD -

Nis­san has re­cently ex­panded its Navara range with 4×2 dou­ble-cab de­riv­a­tives that also uses the coil spring rear sus­pen­sion of its 4×4 cousins, and ac­cord­ing to Nis­san this en­sures su­pe­rior han­dling and ride com­fort.

Other in­no­va­tive fea­tures in the 4×2 mod­els in­clude an Around View Mon­i­tor that uses cam­eras to dis­play what is go­ing on around you, as well as en­hanced in­su­la­tion with fur­ther re­duc­tions in en­gine noise, vi­bra­tion, and harsh­ness. Like in its 4×4 coun­ter­parts Blue­tooth au­dio stream­ing and satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion with 3D-map­ping and live traf­fic up­dates are stan­dard across the range, as well as an in­tel­li­gent key with stop/start but­ton.

The Navara 4×2 mod­els are avail­able with ei­ther a six-speed man­ual gear­box or a seven-speed au­to­matic gear­box and has a pay­load ca­pac­ity of more than one ton and braked tow­ing ca­pac­ity of up to three and a half tons.

The Navara has a 229 mm ground clear­ance, but the raised sus­pen­sion set-up and smart de­sign have al­lowed for a three-de­gree im­prove­ment in the ap­proach (33.0 de­grees), ramp-over (25.2 de­grees) and de­par­ture an­gles (27.9 de­grees).

With the in­tro­duc­tion of th­ese mod­els, the Navara range now of­fers 11 4×2 mod­els. Prices for the six new 4×2 dou­ble-cab mod­els range from R475,900 for the SE man­ual to R551,900 for the LE auto with leather seats, and Nis­san As­sured of­fers a class-lead­ing war­ranty of sixyear/150,000 km and a three-year/90,000 km ser­vice plan.
