Navara gets SA-only Stealth model

Nissan introduces the new Navara Stealth to the South African market.

Modelled on the Nissan Navara luxury edition, this award-winning bakkie comes with a number of design updates to make it an even more rugged, redefined version of the iconic pickup.

Kabelo Rabotho, director marketing Nissan SA, says: “Nissan has more than 50 years of heritage in South Africa. The new Nissan Navara Stealth 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.”

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 and one to match that of its driver. Roll-bar, side steps and black alloy wheels completes the picture.

Two-tone interior

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.

Rabotho says: “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.”

140kW of power

The Navara comes in two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configuration, featuring the Navara twin-turbo engine with 140kW power and 450Nm torque, as well as a six-speed manual transmission or seven-speed automatic transmission, and a five-link coil rear suspension.

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 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 new 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.

The Nissan Navara Stealth starts from R582 200 and comes with Nissan Assured, including a comprehensive three-year/90 000km service plan, plus a class-leading six-year/150 000km warranty.
