The New Nissan Navara,The Freedom To Be Yourself

ROSSLYN, South Africa (November 14, 2017) American rock ‘n roll legend and lead singer of the Doors, Jim Morrison, once said: “A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself,” and what better friend could you ask for than the all-new Nissan Navara, which gives you the ultimate freedom to go wherever your heart desires.

Of course, the heart wants what it wants, so you never know when you’ll have a sudden urge to watch the sunset from Sani Pass, drive along the sandy stretches of the Wild Coast, or just stretch your legs out at a drive-in.

The Navara’s award-winning five-link rear suspension will ensure you always travel in supreme comfort while the four-wheel drive system with Active Brake Limited Slip Differential (ABLS) will take you over any terrain and the largest load bay on a Navara to date will ensure you have all the space you need.

Technical Highlights

The coil spring five-link rear suspension is the first of its kind for a mainstream 1-ton bakkie. This suspension gives the Navara superior levels of on-road comfort that are normally only experienced in SUVs.

Better road-holding, car-like comfort and improved traction through high-speed corners are just some of the benefits of the Navara’s new suspension.

The load-carrying capacity on the new Navara has also been upgraded and this powerful bakkie can carry up to 1,002kg, depending on the specification level, and it can tow a braked trailer of up to 3,500kg.

Nissan’s tried-and-trusted four-wheel drive system combines the transfer case with several electronic aids, which all work together to deliver outstanding off-road capabilities. In addition, the ABLS system works together with the Vehicle Dynamic Control System, and ABS to ensure that the Navara tackles tricky terrain with the surefootedness of a mountain goat.

Creature Comforts

Not even the most ardent of adventurers want to rough it all the time. Despite their intrepid nature, they also prefer to travel in luxury and the new Navara has that box ticked.

Epitomising the SUV-like luxury of the new Navara is the Spinal Support front seats which feature a new spinal channel in high-density foam, designed to distribute body pressure on the seat surface. These seats have been proven to reduce fatigue significantly during long road-trips.

The new cabin also has larger doors for easier ingress and egress, and there’s more rear legroom too. The standard on-board navigation system has 3D mapping with live traffic updates, USB connectivity, Bluetooth audio streaming, and you can play an array of audio and video formats.

Peace Of Mind

Whether you do serious bundu-bashing or not, you want to know that all your adventures are covered by a comprehensive warranty and for this reason, Nissan introduced its new Nissan Assured warranty and service plan as standard.

The new Navara, which is priced from R518,900 to R587,900, has a class-leading mechanical warranty of 6 years/150,000km and a comprehensive service plan of 3 years/90,000km.

The new Nissan Navara lets you be whoever you want to be, supporting you on any of life’s journeys. It gives you the freedom to choose your adventures without restraint, to go off the beaten track and to have the time of your life. Who doesn’t want a friend like that?
