Brian Joss – Nissan South Africa has launched the new Nissan Navara Stealth which has been “engineered specifically with the South African customer in mind, to meet the demands that are placed on them and to reflect something of who they are,” says Kabelo Rabotho, Director Marketing Nissan South Africa.
Modelled on the tough-as-nails Nissan Navara luxury edition, this award-winning pickup comes with a number of design updates to make it an even more rugged, redefined version of the iconic pickup.
Standard silver and chrome detailing on the exterior gives way to sleek, black trims; while newly added orange accents – on the grill and front bumper, side mirrors and side steps – give the new Navara a character that is both edgy and bold .Roll-bar, side steps and black alloy wheels completes the picture.
This two-tone colouration is carried through into the interior, with seats featuring black leather side bolsters and orange material inserts and stitching which both contrast and complement one another to give the cabin a strong, modern feel.
“The new bakkie builds on the Navara’s name as a tough, luxurious and comfortable pickup. These updates are designed for the customer who is passionate about vehicle accessories and looking for a pickup that speaks to who they are,” says Rabotho.
The Navara comes in 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive configuration featuring the Navara twin turbo engine with 140kW power and 450Nm torque, as well as a 6-speed manual transmission or 7-speed automatic transmission and a 5-link coil rear suspension, to further optimize the driving experience.
It also comes with an array of Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies, geared at moving Nissan customers towards safer and more sustainable driving.
“Nissan Intelligent Mobility is a suite of cutting-edge technology that paves the way for a whole new way of driving. It offers peace of mind, opens up new experiences, and connects you to your world and those around you,” says Rabotho.
Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies that feature in the new pickup include, the Intelligent Key System, the Intelligent 4×4 System – which assists drivers in smooth cornering by adjusting power output to the front and rear wheels – and Hill Start Assist.
The Navara also comes with Intelligent Around View Monitor, which uses four cameras positioned at different points around the pickup to give the driver a 360-degree, aerial view of the vehicle and its surrounds.
