For On top of its tax benefits as a pick-up, the Nissan Navara's large load bay and composed handling are key attributes. The Double Cab can seat five in comfort, too.

Against The ride is slightly fidgety and we have some reliability concerns. The rear of the King Cab version is quite cramped.

The tax benefits are probably the Nissan Navara’s biggest selling point. While it’s short of the abilities of the best 4x4s, it’s one of the better pick-ups.

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.
