With Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) indicating a local launch for the 2015 Nissan NP300 Navara to take place next month, it should come as no surprise that we have managed to obtain a brochure detailing said pick-up truck. Firstly, we can now confirm that the new Navara will be offered in a sole double-cab body style.

Also, the 2.5 litre YD25DDTi four-cylinder turbodiesel mill pumps out a total of 190 PS at 3,600 rpm and 450 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. More importantly, the brochure also states that the new Nissan NP300 Navara will be equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission with manual mode – a first in its class in Malaysia.

Other class firsts include the addition of LED headlamps with daytime running lights (DRLs), Nissan Teana-esque zero gravity-inspired seats, rear air-con vents and multi-link live axle rear suspension. Aside from that, other goodies highlighted in the brochure include an ‘Intelligent Key’ with push-start capabilities, 18-inch alloy wheels, Advance Drive Assist Display (ADAD) and automatic dual-zone climate control.

As for safety kit, the Nissan NP300 Navara is equipped with Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), four-wheel active brake limited slip (ABLS) and traction control – no mention on how many airbags the new truck will arrive with, though. Also present in the Navara are hill start assist (HSA) and hill descent control (HDC).

Interested parties would be glad to know that a quick check on Nissan Malaysia’s website will reveal the full list of locations for a roadshow on the new Nissan NP300 Navara. The campaign kicks off this October in the central region before making its way throughout the country and ending in East Malaysia in November.
