Ever since the introduction of the Nissan Navarato the Australian marketplace in 1986, Nissan has carefully endeavoured to improve upon its design with care and expertise. Impressively, the 2017 edition is available in more than 30 variants, shipping with either single cab or dual cab, petrol or diesel, manual or automatic, or two- or four-wheel drive. Starting at about $20,000 for the base model, the 2017 Navara goes all the way up to the princely sum of $55,000 for premium variants. The cheapest variant within the four-wheel-drive category will set you back about $32,000, and, even then, it is only a single-cab chassis with manual transmission. There is certainly merit to purchasing a model with four-wheel drive; however, whether or not it is a financially prudent decision for your expected use is for you to decide.

Power-wise, the 2017 Navara is rock solid. Its engines are economical and powerful, featuring a technically outstanding automatic gearbox for the automatic varieties (which arguably justifies the higher cost for such variants). The cabin is comfortable but not overly spacious for a vehicle of its class.

If you’re looking for value, the Navara’s most expensive engine configuration might actually save you the most money over the long term. This is because the 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel configuration is incredibly fuel efficient, using less than seven litresper 100 kilometres in the automatic variant; this is according to official testing that was conducted by Nissan, who used a balanced mix of city and country testing.

With an impressive selection of 30+ variants for the 2017 Nissan Navara, you can be assured that there really is something for everyone.

Pros

  • Efficient and powerful engines in all variants
  • Automatic gearbox is highly optimised
  • The 2017 Nissan Navara ST (4×4) King Cab Utility is arguably the best choice for four-wheeldrive
  • Very good fuel economy; the efficiency difference between manual and automatic is negligible

Cons

  • Cabin space isn’t amazing for a vehicle of its class
  • Tow capacity isn’t anything to write home about
