PARIS, France (August 29, 2018) – The Nissan Navara N-Guard is a tough and stylish new special version of the brand’s award-winning pickup, and it’s on sale now.
The Navara is the versatile ‘go-anywhere’ pickup that’s perfect for a tough week at work followed by an adventurous weekend in the wilderness. The N-Guard special version makes it even more desirable, thanks to a contemporary design upgrade, plus extra standard equipment.
Based on the flagship Tekna grade, the front grille, fog lamp surrounds, mirror covers, door handles and rear bumper are all finished in black. Matching side steps and roof rails have been added, along with unique black 18-inch alloy wheels. The interior of the headlamps has been darkened, and a powered sunroof with tinted glass is standard.
Customers can order the Navara N-Guard in one of three exterior colours – Dark Grey, Metallic Black and Storm White. The makeover is completed with unique decals at the base of the doors, extending on to the load bed behind the rear wheel.
Inside, the themes of refinement and sophistication continue with restyled leather seats. The base and back inserts have been upgraded with a smart new dark grey and yellow design, complemented by yellow double stitching. This feature is replicated on the door trim and on the new signature floor mats, which feature a geometric design to match the exterior decals.
Front and rear parking sensors and headlamp washers are fitted as standard equipment. Previously they were only available as optional extras. The one item still on the options list is a front differential locker which, when fitted, works in tandem with the Navara’s standard rear differential locker to provide enhanced traction on every type of surface.
For even greater off-road performance, customers can order the Navara N-Guard with the OFF-ROADER AT32 pack. Launched in June this year, the pack includes bespoke performance suspension that increases ride height by 20mm, full protection of key underbody components and larger 32-inch tyres. A snorkel to improve wading depth can also be integrated, creating the most capable Navara ever offered to customers.
The N-Guard’s new features complement the Navara’s existing suite of advanced technologies. Standard equipment includes Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, Intelligent Emergency Braking and Intelligent Around View Monitor. As with every Nissan LCV, the Navara N-Guard comes with an industry-leading five-year / 160,000 km warranty.
The Nissan Navara N-Guard takes its name and ‘tough and stylish’ attitude from the Nissan EnGuard concept, first seen at the Hannover Motor Show 2016. The Navara N-Guard will make its public debut at the Hannover Motor Show 2018 later this month.
A former winner of the International Pickup Award, the Navara is Nissan’s most popular pickup globally. It is manufactured at facilities in Spain, China, Mexico, Thailand and – since July 2018 – Argentina.
