Nissan has dressed the Navara NP300 with European clothing and showcased it at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Nissan Navara NP300 is getting ready to be offered for sale across the Old Continent. According to the car manufacturer, the pickup truck will become available in the Visia, Acenta, N-Connecta and Tekna trim levels and it will be getting standard equipment which will be including the cruise control, power windows, hill start assist, seven airbags, electronic braking differential and several other goodies.

Nissan says that the new Navara NP300 has dropped 20 kg from its weight for the double cab version and this has happened thanks to a new five-link rear suspension system which is replacing the old leaf spring configuration. Under its hood, the model is bringing a new 2.3 liter four-cylinder dCi diesel engine, which is being offered in two versions, with either 160 HP or with 190 HP.

The engine is said to be 24 percent more efficient than its predecessor and it is the cleanest and most economical unit in the segment, as Nissan is adding. The 2.3 liter dCi will be working with either the two-wheel or the four-wheel drive system and it will be connected to the engine through a six-speed manual, offered as standard, or a seven-speed automatic, offered as an option. The 2016 Nissan Navara NP300 will be offered with a 5-year / 160,000 km warranty. No pricing details have been announced so far.
