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.
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. Lower models are rather basic while Tekna and N-Guard are rather pricey.
Reliability isn’t a Nissan strong suit; the brand finished joint 27th out of 31 manufacturers in our 2020 Reliability Survey. In comparison, Mitsubishi came an outstanding second with Toyota just behind in third.
