The Navara Visia has been carefully developed to offer operators a practical, robust and capable pick-up at a price that’s in tune with the times.
The new model introduces a new version of the respected 2.5-litre dCi common-rail diesel four-cylinder engine, producing 144 PS and 350Nm of torque and is capable of up to 39.8mpg on the extra urban cycle.
For the new business-oriented Navara, Nissan engineers have worked to provide smart savings in specification.
For example, the interior door handles are finished in black rather than chrome. Similarly the front bumper is specified in body colour rather than having a two-tone element, while the grille struts are painted rather than chromed and conventional wiper blades are used in place of the flat blades found on higher-specification versions.
None of the changes affect the vehicle’s outstanding ability and functionality with the Navara Visia providing a generous 2.36m2 load bed and a practical internal bed length of 1,511mm. Hardworking businesses will also value the Navara’s 2,600kg towing capacity and a maximum 1,250kg payload.
The Navara Visia’s specification includes part-time four-wheel drive, air conditioning, central door locking, six airbags, a CD player and Bluetooth connectivity.
The robust part-time four-wheel drive system provides drive to the rear wheels under normal conditions or a 50/50 torque split to all four wheels when 4WD mode is engaged. Owners and drivers will also welcome ESP as standard fit to help maximise the Navara Visia’s driver control in all conditions.
Also featuring on the Navara are high and low ratio modes, the latter providing outstanding levels of traction and pulling power, especially on steep slopes and sticky situations.
Jon Pollock, corporate sales director at Nissan, said: ‘We’re working hard to develop our LCV offering as well as respond to customer needs and the introduction of the Navara Visia is a shining example of this. We’ve listened to our fleet and SME customers’ desire for an affordable pick-up and we look forward to seeing the Navara Visia working hard for SME fleets from January 2013.’
Order books for the new Nissan Visia are open now priced from £17,995 CVOTR, with deliveries beginning January 2013.
