The single-cab Nissan Navara has touched down on South African shores, with the local arm of the Japanese car manufacturer saying the locally produced bakkie features an “impressive” list of standard equipment. See pricing below…

A duo of drivetrain options are available.

“The Single Cab comes with an impressive list of best-in-class features that make it the perfect partner to get the job done right,” Stefan Haasbroek, marketing director at Nissan South Africa, says. “It also offers high levels of safety and security from entry grades, including driver and passenger airbags standard as well as ABS and electronic brake-force distribution.”

All models are equipped with a manual transmission.

The local line-up comprises six derivatives – four two-wheel-drive and two four-wheel-drive models, each employing a manual gearbox. The opening gambit to the range, the 2.5 XE variant is powered by a 2.5-litre petrol motor, which produces 118 kW and 233 N.m of torque. The remaining models make do with Nissan’s 2.5-litre turbodiesel unit in various states of tune.

In the XE and SE turbodiesel variants, the 2.5-litre produces 120 kW and 403 N.m. The flagship model’s 2.5-litre, meanwhile, has been tuned to deliver 140 kW and 450 N.m.

A load capacity of “up to” 1 144 kg is on offer.

As standard, the single-cab derivative ships with Nissan’s six-year/90 000 km service plan. A six-year/150 000 km warranty is included in the asking price.
