THE Nissan Navara has taken top honours in one of the UK’s most high-profile series of Commercial Vehicle awards.
The Navara was voted top truck by the readers of Honest John Vans, which pulls data from 2.3 million website users to determine the most sought-after models in each category.
Honest John Vans editor, Dan Powell, said: “Cheaper to run, better equipped and more rewarding to drive than most of its rivals, the Nissan Navara has become the standard by which all other pick-ups should be judged. A favourite with our readers, the Navara provides a class-leading carrying and towing experience that makes it a dependable choice for operators who need a heavy duty 4×4 workhorse.”
The HonestJohn.co.uk awards differ from many others in the industry as it is the site’s readers that dictate the models that take the honours – the awards go to the vehicles that have stirred the most interest among the site’s users over the past 12 months.
Sebastian Bosslet, Navara Product Manager at Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd, said: “The Navara NP300 has been a huge success since it was introduced in 2014, while the latest revisions have also made it one of the safest trucks on the market thanks to its Intelligent Mobility systems, which include Nissan’s Around View camera and Blind Spot Detection. It’s popular with commercial users and leisure users alike, and is clearly a huge hit with the users of one of the UK’s best-loved van comparison sites.”
