Nissan Navara Named Best Pick-Up

The Nissan Navara has been named Best Pick-Up at the Parkers New Car Awards 2018, adding to its list of industry accolades. Our motoring journalist, Tim Barnes-Clay, reports.

Real-World

Judges from the car website put every pick-up through its paces and took the reviews of real-world owners into account before reaching their decision. And, after assessing the field, the judges’ verdict was that the Navara stood head and shoulders above the competition.

Class-Leading

Alex Smith, Managing Director at Nissan Motor (GB), said: “We are delighted to accept this award as further evidence of the Navara’s class-leading appeal. Combining practicality with outstanding performance, comfort and technology, it’s great to see Navara setting the benchmark that all other pick-ups are measured by.”

All-Rounder

Presenting the award, Editor of Parkers Keith Adams said: “Nissan has created the closest thing the pick-up segment has to the perfect all-rounder with the latest Navara. The engines are powerful yet efficient, while the chassis is strong but sharp to drive. Add in an interior that would be at home in a modern family off-roader, and you’ve got a highly capable workhorse that’s also impressively refined.”

Innovative

Available as a King Cab or a Double Cab, the all-new Nissan Navara has everything the driver needs for a pick-up for both work and play. It has a powerful and efficient engine, a strong chassis and an interior that offers the comfort and innovative technology seen on Nissan’s Crossover range.

Load-Lugger

Priced from £24,480, and including a 5-Year/100,000-mile Manufacturer Warranty as standard, the robust Navara can handle payloads of more than one tonne and has a best-in-class towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes. Its efficient diesel engine has best-in-class fuel economy of up to 46.3mpg and CO2 emissions from as little as 159g/km (for the 160PS single-turbo engine).
