Nissan unveils ‘toughest Navara yet’
January 28, 2020driversclub
If you like your 4x4s tough, you’ll be excited to hear about the latest version of the Nissan Navara Off-Roader AT32. According to Nissan, it’s the “toughest Navara yet”.
Built through an ongoing partnership between Nissan and Icelandic off-road experts Arctic Trucks, the new Navara comes with full underbody shielding that has been upgraded to lightweight aluminium.
It also has a refined shape designed to provide maximum protection for underbody components.
Another highlight of the new model is its 31.6-inch Nokian tyres, which offer benefits including better on-road handling as well as off-road capability, combined with better fuel economy and emissions.
Satin black alloy wheels are fitted with dual valves to allow tyre pressure adjustment when the car moves across different terrains.
Nissan highlighted some other Navara features that have been carried over to the new version of the Off-Roader AT32, including the bespoke all-terrain wheel arch extensions, side steps, mud guards and tailgate.
Optional accessories are available to those who really want to test this 4×4 to its limits, including an air intake snorkel that increases the Navara’s maximum wading depth to 80cm.
Onboard technologies like hill start assist, hill descent control and intelligent emergency braking should also help drivers get the best out of this model.
Manuel Burdiel, Nissan’s general manager in Europe for light commercial vehicle sales and business development, said: “We have upgraded the Off-Roader AT32 so it can maintain its position as the ultimate Navara while bringing new efficiency and becoming fully WLTP [Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test] compliant. It’s the perfect blend of in-car technology, comfort and extreme off-road performance.”
The updated model will go on sale from February 2020.
Steve Clarke, marketing manager at Drivers Club News, comments: “Nissan has already enjoyed success with its Navara range, and this new version looks like it should grab the attention of hardcore off-roaders.”
