Upon unveiling the NP300 Navara crossover pickup, Nissan has revealed its goal of combining the off-roading capabilities, durability, and capacity of the Navara with all the refined comfort and luxury of a crossover. The all-new vehicle brings the style and quality of a car to the practicality of a pickup truck.

A tough chassis has a host of engineering innovations and features to enhance handling, and the NP300 Navara itself utilizes the same crossover platform that was used to create reputable vehicles such as the Juke, Qashqai, and X-Trail. In addition, the NP300 Navara makes use of such cutting-edge safety features as an Around View Monitor, Forward Emergency Braking, Cruise Control, Hill Descent Control, and Hill Start Assist.

Inside, the design of the seats was inspired by NASA technology, while the sculpted design of the dashboard gives the cabin an open feel. The engine is a 2.3-liter dCi engine, considered the cleanest and most economical in its segment and touted as 24% more efficient than previous engines.

The NP300 Navara crossover pickup has improved towing and load capabilities as well to keep up with the pickup market, while also maintaining the stylish design cues and comfort of a car. Four-wheel drive capabilities also ensure the vehicle has just enough traction off the road as on the road. Overall, the Nissan NP300 Navara fuses smooth luxury with rugged practicality.
