The new Nissan Navara Stealth, just launched in SA, is another that adds comfort to functionality.
It’s certainly rugged, but brings an array of design updates that lend a strong and stylishly modern feel, as well as the Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies that assist the driver in corners.
Modelled on the Navara luxury edition, the new Stealth replaces the chrome detailing with sleek black trims, while introducing orange accents on the grill, front bumper and side steps to give the bakkie a bold and edgy look. Roll bars, side steps and black alloy wheels.
Inside, the two-tone theme continues with black leather side bolsters and orange inserts. Kabelo Rabotho, director of marketing at Nissan South Africa, puts it this way: “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.”
The Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies include a 4X4 system that adjusts power output to front and rear wheels to assist in cornering, hill start assist as well as a full-on view monitor that gives the driver a 360 degree view of the surrounds as well as an aerial view.
“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.
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.
The Nissan Navara Stealth starts from R582 200 and comes with Nissan Assured, including a comprehensive 3-year/90 000km service plan plus a class-leading 6-year/150 000km warranty with Nissan Assured.
