Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
Of all the makes and models of pick-up truck sold in the UK, the four-door, five-seat types, such as the Navara’s Double Cab body style, are the most popular. For Navara buyers who need to prioritise bed length over passenger space, the King Cab has an extra 215mm, coming at the expense of rear seat space. You’ll need to opt for Visia or Acenta trim to get a King Cab, while chassis cab models that do without a rear bed are Visia only.
All versions have a maximum payload of in excess of 1100kg, greater than allowed by plushest versions of the Ford Ranger if not the Ssangyong Musso Rhino. All versions can tow up to 3500kg, matching the best in class. However, the Musso goes one step further by being able to carry its maximum payload whilst towing 3500kg, a feat unmatched by any other truck.
Sitting in the front seats, two tall adults get ample head and leg room, although shorter drivers will wish the front armrest could be slid forwards. Stick to the Double Cab and two adults will be comfortable on a long journey; there’s good head, leg and shoulder room although the rear floor is slightly raised. Even so, it’s bigger in the back than a Mitsubishi L200. With two chairs that fold down like a pair of cinema seats, the King Cab isn’t as comfortable for rear seat passengers, and is tighter on space.
