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. Those considering one on a PCP finance deal will find the Nissan one of the more attractive pick-ups if they hand it back at the end of the term.

We think N-Connecta trim makes most sense, because it comes with climate control, electric windows, cruise control, keyless entry and drive, a leather steering wheel, automatic lights, Bluetooth, DAB radio, a USB port and two free colour choices; red and white. In addition it gets 18in alloys and a reversing camera.

Safety kit includes seven airbags, an alarm and immobiliser and emergency braking. It received four stars from Euro NCAP.
