Now available to order, the new Nissan Pathfinder and Nissan Navara offer far more 4x4 for the money with key enhancements of real customer benefit.
Highly competitive pricing starts at £19,807 (on the road) for the Nissan Navara Acenta King Cab. The Nissan Navara Tekna, available only in Double Cab form, costs from £24,389.50 (on the road) for the manual or £25,682 (on the road) for the automatic. Extra standard features on the Nissan Navara Acenta include side and curtain airbags, ESP stability control, front fog lights, new seat cloth, additional cabin storage. On the Nissan Navara Tekna, pop-up headlight washers, speed limiter, power fold mirrors, MP3 AUX input all come as standard.
The Nissan Pathfinder Acenta 2.5 dCi 190 is priced at £28,495 (on the road). The fully equipped Nissan Pathfinder Tekna is available with either a 6-speed manual transmission (£31,595) or a 5-speed automatic (£33,095). Extra standard features on the Nissan Pathfinder Acenta include Fine Vision combimeter for a crisp view of the instrument dials, new centre console and lidded storage box and MP3 AUX input. On the Nissan Pathfinder Tekna, Nissan Connect Premium HDD, a sat nav infotainment system with 7-inch colour touch screen, comes as standard as well as new 18-inch wheels, headlight washers, speed limiter and new centre console with wood finish.
In its latest guise in both Nissan Pathfinder and Nissan Navara, the 4-cylinder diesel provides peak power of 190 PS (188 bhp) with peak torque of 450 Nm (332 lb ft), figures which represent an 11% improvement over the previous model. For the Nissan Navara, this represents class leading power and torque without compromising on fuel consumption or emissions. Either vehicle is now capable of doing 0-62mph in just 10.7 seconds.
Both models have significantly improved performance and fuel economy - fuel consumption improves and CO2 emissions come down, by an average of 15%. For both the Nissan Pathfinder and Nissan Navara, official combined fuel economy is boosted from the outgoing models' 28.8mpg to 33.2mpg, while CO2 is cut from 264g/km to 224g/km. A drop in CO2 emissions means that the Nissan Pathfinder drops two tax bands in line with rivals with less power and the Nissan Navara can include efficiency amongst its long list of attributes.
Nissan Connect Premium, a whole new 'infotainment' system, replaces both the previous DVD satnav and CD autochanger. The Hard Disk Drive-based system brings state-of-the-art navigation, music storage and playback. The 40 GB satnav offers 3D street-level mapping and extensive POI (points of interest) data. The 9 GB music centre will automatically download and store music from the equivalent of 250 CDs, while also offering full iPod connectivity and a facility for wireless audio streaming using the built-in Bluetooth. The system even includes a reversing camera. And if you get tired of looking backwards you can always pop in a DVD to watch (but only while the vehicle is stationary).
Power output is 231 PS while the torque output of 550 Nm leads the class. Better still, peak torque is achieved from as low as 1,750 rpm and is available all the way to 2,500 rpm, while as much as 500 Nm is available from a mere 1,500 rpm. Idle speed is an exceptionally low 650 rpm with none of the vibrations and noise usually associated with a diesel.
Prices for the V6 diesel engine will be announced at a later date with deliveries starting in September 2010.
