Hmmmm this or 2016 Ranger or Hilux or Triton....

"The all-new Nissan NP300 Navara sets a new benchmark in the one-tonne pick-up sector, combining the best of Nissan's Crossover leadership with over 80 years of experience in designing and manufacturing robust and cleverly engineered pick-ups."

"The Nissan NP300 Navara's new 2.3-litre dCi engine is up to 24 per cent more efficient than the unit it replaces and is the cleanest and most economical in its sector. Available with two power output options, 118kW and 140kW, the range-topping version introduces twin turbocharging technology, which is the first time for Nissan in this segment and delivers exceptionally low running costs coupled with substantially reduced CO2 emissions."

Is the NP300 not aimed at a cheaper cost than the Navara?

The NP300, in SA, is the old generation bakkkie, which Nissan has kept on building.

The new NP300 is meant to replace both the NP300, or D22 generation and the Navara or D40 generation.

Nissan likes to go either bland, or just plain hideous, as can be witnessed by the Nissan Almera, and then they sometimes amaze us with something like the 370Z.

This NP300 falls into the bland category. 10/10 for being consistent though.

All things considered not a bad looking bakkie.

Pity that V6 diesel is gone with this range. It was the most powerful & most err...torque full motor of any bakkie

Wow!

"A Cape Town resident has just passed the 1 500 000 km mark in his 2002 Nissan Hardbody double-cab bakkie.

Brian Kannemeyer purchased the white 2,4i 16v model new from Shus Nissan in Goodwood back in 2002.

“When we picked up our new Hardbody, we promptly took it on a round trip across South Africa, touching base in Johannesburg, Durban, East London and Port Elizabeth before returning home with our new pick-up,” said Kannemeyer.

Kannemeyer, who runs a shop-fitting business, then started putting plenty more kilometres on the bakkie thanks to work commitments.

“I regularly travel for work, and I am back and forth between Johannesburg, Cape Town, Bloemfontein and even as far as the Limpopo Province.

“I also travel to Namibia regularly, and Madam [his name for the bakkie] and I often visit Windhoek, Keetmanshoop, Swakopmund and even as far as the Angolan border for work,” he said.

Kannemeyer said he did not miss a single scheduled service – which was required almost every month – up to the 300 000 km mark. Thereafter, he and his sons would change oil and consumables, leaving the local dealer to complete the major services.

He also made sure to put his Hardbody on a dynamometer every two years or so to pick up any potential problems early.

But, according to Kannemeyer, the 2,4-litre engine has never been opened, although the throttle chamber, manifold and alternator have all been replaced. The Hardbody has also been through two gearboxes in its lifetime.

To celebrate the milestone, Kannemeyer had the bakkie resprayed and the seats re-upholstered."
