The Nissan Navara has been named Pick-up of the Year by Company Car & Van Magazine.
Tough, smart and refined, the mighty Navara boasts an advanced four-wheel drive system that can go virtually anywhere, plus a rigid chassis with the first multi-link rear suspension in its class.
Its high approach, departure angles and ground clearance mean Navara’s imposing presence can’t be ignored, yet its sleek aerodynamic shapes and distinctive LED lighting give it a fresh, modern look.
The current iteration of Navara represents the culmination of 80 years of Nissan pick-up production experience – and the award from Company Car & Van follows similar recognition in previous years from the likes of Honest John, Parkers and 4×4 Magazine.
Andrew Walker, editor of Company Car & Van Magazine, which caters specifically for SME fleets, said: ‘‘Despite the global pandemic, Nissan have managed to make changes to Navara which have improved it and made it a very hard package to beat.
‘‘New Euro6d engines, NissanConnect Services, multi-link rear suspension on all models and an improved six-speed manual gearbox combine to make the Navara a deserved winner.’’
Andrea Patti, Nissan National Corporate Sales Manager, said: ‘‘Naturally we are delighted with this recognition for Navara.
‘‘With its strong payload and towing capabilities, undeniable value for money and cutting-edge technology, no wonder it is such a popular choice for fleet managers who need pick-up trucks that won’t let them down.
‘‘It’s a vehicle we are incredibly proud of here at Nissan and it’s great to see it get the recognition it deserves.’’
