Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The vast majority of pick-up trucks are run through work, and due to their LCV tax rating, the Navara attracts fixed monthly tax payments regardless of trim, engine and gearbox. Not only will the monthly payments be far cheaper than a large SUV, they’ll even undercut some family cars.

If you’re buying with cash, the Nissan is competitively priced versus its rivals. Make sure you haggle, though, because there are plenty of dealer discounts to be had. Nissan usually offers tempting finance rates, so your monthly PCP finance bill shouldn’t be too hard to swallow.

Overview

The Navara’s appealing interior and responsive touchscreen infotainment system impress, while the top diesel engine is gutsier than those found in the Isuzu D-Max and cheaper Toyota Hiluxes. However, the Ford Ranger is better to drive while the Ssangyong Musso Rhino can carry a heavier payload.

  • Reasonably comfortable on the motorway
  • Appealing interior
  • Responsive infotainment system
  • Lots of wind noise
  • Ponderous handling
  • Rivals are gutsier
