NISSAN has launched an exclusive new version of its award-winning Navara pick-up, with additional extras added to the standard specification.
Badged somewhat awkwardly as Trek-1°, the car made its world debut at the Brussels Motor Show.
The name relates to the geographical location of Spain’s Navarre desert — at -1° of longitude — from which the Navara’s name was originally taken.
Nissan says exclusivity of the Navara Trek-1° is “guaranteed”. Only 1,500 examples will be built — all in double cab body style. Each is based on the Navara’s top Tekna grade, with extras fitted as standard.
These include black sport styling bars with two forward-facing LED spot lamps attached to the top section.
The Navara Trek-1° also comes with black side styling bars, black 18-inch six-spoke alloy wheels and a new load bed cover made from durable plastic and finished in black or white.
This addition offers security, allowing loads to be hidden from view. Beneath the cover is a load bed divider and liner, which will keep loads secure during transportation.
Optional extras on the Trek-1° include leather seats, heated front seats and eight-way adjustment on the driver’s seat.
A powered sunroof, tow bar, differential lock and full-sized spare wheel are also available. The Trek-1° is available in two exterior colours — the new-to-Navara Pearlescent White and Black Metallic.
Customers who want a six-speed manual gearbox can opt for the 160 PS or 190 PS versions of the 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, while those wanting a seven-speed automatic transmission can select the 190 PS. All versions offer “on-demand” four-wheel drive as standard.
Every double cab comes with unique-in-segment multi-link rear suspension for a better ride, plus a number of safety technologies including forward emergency braking, vehicle dynamic control, hill descent control and hill start assist.
The Trek-1° also benefits from the NissanConnect infotainment system with satellite navigation and DAB digital radio, 360-degree around view monitor, rear parking sensors and LED headlights.
The Navara Trek-1° is on sale now in Belgium, and will be launched in other European markets in the coming weeks.
