Nissan Europe has updated its Spanish-built Navara pickup range with a more advanced Euro 6-compliant diesel engine and some detail equipment changes.
The upgrade is for both both the 190PS twin-turbo and 160PS single turbo versions of the 2.3-litre dCi diesel engine. CO2 emissions starting from 159g/km are down 8g/km on the Euro 5 engine while fuel consumption on the EU official combined cycle improved 1.4mpg to 46.3mpg.
New emissions equipment includes an oxides of nitrogen-reducing (NOx) Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system with AdBlue tank with its own filler flap on the opposite side of the vehicle to the diesel tank to avoid confusion. The tank holds 17 litres of liquid, allowing up to 7,150 miles between refills. Driver assistance messages relating to the AdBlue system have been integrated into the colour LCD combimeter, the central information screen set between the two main dials.
Other specification changes include Idle-Stop System (ISS), colour combimeter, cruise control with speed limiter, Bluetooth hands-free audio and multi-function controls on the steering wheel.
The gross vehicle weight (GVW) has increased 25-35 kg, while kerb weight has increased 5-38 kg (both depending on model). One-tonne payload and 3.5-tonne towing capacity remain unchanged.
Double Cab and King Cab body styles are offered.
Driver aid options include Around View Monitor (AVM) camera system and with Forward Emergency Braking (FEB).
