Nissan Navara Pick-up 3.0 dCi Double Cab Outlaw 4dr Review

For This engine gives the performance and refinement that the smaller engine simply can't, and Outlaw trim comes jam-packed with luxury goodies.

Against It's many thousands more expensive to buy than the rest of the Navara range, and although it drives well for a pick-up, it can't compete with lifestyle 4x4s.

3 out of 5 stars

This version is the most expensive Navara, but the refinement of the engine alone makes it worth the extra. Our favourite.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The Nissan Navara is available as either a Double Cab, with enough space for five adults and a decent loadbay, or a King Cab, with a class-leading loadbay but limited cabin space. A choice of engines is also offered. The cheaper 2.5 diesel is up to the job, but it’s noisy and rather inflexible. The 3.0 V6 diesel is many thousands more expensive, but if you can afford to upgrade, it’s well worth it.

The Navara has impressive low-range four-wheel-drive abilities, but because it relies on leaf-sprung suspension for heavy loads, its ride is decidedly bouncy when the loadbay is empty or lightly loaded. That said, it still rides better than most pick-ups.

Buy the Navara through your business, and you can claim back thousands of pounds in VAT because of its commercial classification.
