Award-Winning: All-New Nissan NP300 Navara Wins International Pick-Up of the Year Crown

YOKOHAMA, Japan (23 November 2015) – The all-new Nissan NP300 Navara has won the coveted International Pick-up Award 2016 at a ceremony in Lyon, France.

Nissan’s all-new pick-up fought off stiff competition from Mitsubishi L200 (Triton) and Ford Ranger with judges praising its superior on-road and off-road capabilities, strong engine performance and payload capacity.

The all-new NP300 Navara underwent the rigorous International Pick-up testing process, being judged for its off-road ability, on-road performance and its value for money. The pick-ups were also tested on their ability as a workhorse, which included comparing towing capabilities.

The all-new NP300 Navara delivers Crossover-inspired comfort and refinement while maintaining the Navara’s acclaimed off-road ability, durability and load capacity.

Its robust chassis introduces a host of new features, including an all-new five-link rear suspension for the Dual Cab pick-up models and an impressive load bed, which is 67mm longer than the previous model.

Philippe Guérin-Boutaud, Corporate Vice President Nissan LCV BU, said: “This prestigious award celebrates Nissan’s 80 years of pick-up expertise. Rigorous testing by International Pick-up of the Year illuminated the tough and innovative character of the all-new Navara. “Nissan is best known by its customers in Europe as the maker of capable 4x4s and breakthrough crossovers. This new Navara represents the fusion of those two realms of excellence to deliver a truly breakthrough pickup truck that combines rugged 4x4 toughness with the sophistication and efficiency of a Crossover”, added Ponz Pandikuthira, Director of Light Commercial Vehicles for Nissan Europe.

“It is truly an honour to be selected as the International Pickup of the Year by a panel of the most experienced commercial vehicle journalists across Europe. Thank you to the IPU jurors for this award and for this powerful endorsement of the new Nissan Navara's product excellence”.

Production of the all-new NP300 Navara for the European market began in Barcelona this month.

It goes on sale across Europe from January 2016.

The complete range of Nissan’s NP300 Navara model variants – Single Cab, King Cab and Dual Cab in a multitude of engine, drivetrain and tray combinations – is now available in Australia.
