Nissan Navara Review

August 13, 2015

Fake Friday is upon us and, with only one more working day until the weekend, we’re bringing you a review to get you through Thursday. Rolling onto our radar today is the Nissan Navara – and with impressive load-carrying capability, bags of kit and plenty of pulling power, this SUV means business.

If you’re on the hunt for a practical pickup that doubles up as a family-friendly car, dive into today’s Nissan Navara review and find out more – and if car finance is holding you back, we can help there, too.

The Nissan Navara is built for carrying capability rather than comfort, with the rear spaciously designed to carry a heavy weight. For passengers, there’s plenty of legroom up-front and the cabin is scattered with generous door bins and cubbyholes for your in-car essentials.

The most spacious model in the lineup is the King Cab, with a load bed stretching 1,851mm. The Double Cab isn’t far behind, offering a 1,511m long load bed – but whichever model you opt for, the Nissan Navara is a well-built, durable and practical car.

Performance & Handling

Despite its size, the Nissan Navara comes with plenty of pulling power – thanks to its array of diesel engines. The 190bhp model accelerates from 0-62mph in 11 seconds, while the 3.0 litre V6 has a more spritely 0-62mph time of 9.3 seconds – making it the fastest engine in the lineup.

When it comes to running costs, the cheapest model in the range is the Visia Double Cab, returning 34.5mpg. A car of this size is always going to come with high emissions, but opt for a 2.5 litre Double Cab and emissions remain between 215g/km and 222g/km. Thanks to being categorised as a light goods vehicle, the Navara’s annual road tax is £225 – regardless of the engine’s CO2 output.


All Nissan Navara models come with plenty of kit, with even the entry-level Visia featuring remote central locking, Bluetooth connection, 17 inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning and electrically adjustable door mirrors.

Stepping up to the Acenta model adds side steps; a leather steering wheel, gearstick and handbrake; dual-zone climate control and cruise control. For a touch more tech, topping the range is the Outlaw trim – packing in a Sat Nav system, Bose stereo system, 18 inch alloys and an electric sunroof.
