Updated Nissan Navara brings NVH improvements, updated styling to dual-cab pick-up range
19 Mar 2020
NISSAN has applied another model-year update to dual-cab versions of its Navara pick-up range, ushering in new safety tech and refreshed styling, with the four-door range now kicking off from $34,550 plus on-roads.
The Japanese car-maker has striven to improve the noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels of the dual-cab Navara by improving in four key areas: wind noise, engine noise and vibration, road noise and cabin insulation.
Improvements have been made thanks to the fitment of a new acoustic windscreen which helps reduce wind and road noise inside the cabin, and additional sound-absorbing material for the centre console, firewall and transmission tunnel.
A new engine cover treatment also helps reduce noise intrusion.
The mid-spec ST grade now benefits from the Black Styling package as standard, which applies the dark treatment to the signature V-Motion grille, front foglight surrounds, alloy sports bar and mirror caps.
New black-on-silver 18-inch alloy wheels have also been fitted – up from the previously standard 16-inch rims – which also serve to marginally increase ground clearance and approach, departure and ramp-over angles.
The rest of the range carries over visually, with no other major engineering or spec changes.
Small price increases have been applied across the range including single-cab and king-cab versions, with the majority going up by less than $1000.
All 2020 Navaras come with the Nissan Intelligent Mobility safety suite which extends to hill descent control, active brake limited slip and a surround-view monitor.
No changes have been made to the Navara’s powertrain line-up, which for the dual-cab range consists of a 2.3-litre twin-turbo-diesel four-cylinder mill producing 140kW/450Nm, mated to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission.
Nissan Australia managing director Stephen Lester said the changes were made to benefit customers.
“These changes deliver even more of what our customers want from their Navara,” he said.
“Not only do they add more refinement right across the Dual Cab range, but they also unlock a new tough look for one of our most popular, and most accessible, models, the Navara ST.”
Through the first two months of 2020, Nissan has sold 1767 examples of the Navara, down more than 20 per cent over the 2302 managed to the same point last year.
