A vehicle is one of your biggest investments, so it’s important to select one that suits your lifestyle—especially if this vehicle will be ferrying you and your loved ones regularly. So before you commit to one vehicle, here’s a model you may want to consider if you reside in the concrete jungle of Metro Manila but also have an unquenchable thirst for adventure: the Nissan Navara.
Whether you’re in the middle of a rural adventure or navigating city traffic, the Nissan Navara has the features, technology, design, and versatility to give you a safe and pleasant ride.
Here’s how the Nissan Navara performs in different conditions:
Conditions: rocky dirt roads, steep hills, sand dunes, ravines, and uneven terrain
The right engine is essential to have a good time off-roading, like the Nissan Navara’s 2.5-liter turbo diesel engine with 190ps and 450Nm of torque. It's perfect for when you’re crawling over rocks and obstacles!
You’ll also want good ride height. The Nissan Navara EL Variant has a generous 245 mm ground clearance.
Your sports truck should stay solid and not twist when you’re navigating uneven terrain. A sturdy fully-boxed ladder frame (or chassis) like the Navara’s is your ideal truck’s skeleton.
Safety features are also useful when off-roading. The Navara’s Intelligent Around View Monitor has a mode dedicated to driving on unpaved surfaces. Four cameras will give you a 360-degree view of obstacles. On rough terrain, the Off-Road Monitor will activate and help you see exactly where to drive your front wheels.
Conditions: traffic jams, narrow roads, motorcycles, bikers, and pedestrians zipping past
When you’re stuck in Metro Manila’s infamous traffic jams, at least be comfortable. The Nissan Navara is equipped with thoughtful designs like the Zero Gravity Front Seats. Inspired by the weightless posture of astronauts in space, these are created to give you generous support and reduce fatigue.
If you rely on your phone for directions and feel-good driving music, you’ll want a vehicle with a lot of USB ports. The Navara even has the elusive USB-C port! Each variant has an 8” Advanced Touchscreen Display Audio (except for the EL), and both Apple Carplay and Android Auto systems, so you can keep yourself and your passengers entertained during your journey.
For bumpy roads and humps, the Navara has a rear multi-link suspension system to ensure a smooth and comfortable drive.
The Navara PRO-4X, Calibre-X, VL and VE variants are also equipped with other Nissan Intelligent Mobility features such as Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Intelligent Emergency Braking. Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are also available in the PRO-4X, Calibre-X, and VL variants. These are beneficial when you’re backing out of a crowded car park or driving in places where lots of motorbikes, bikers, and pedestrians zip around.
The Nissan Navara also has a 5-year warranty for worry-free ownership. So if you think this is the vehicle for you, sign up for inquiries or book a test drive via Nissan Philippines’ website now!
