Nissan Navara pickup (2004-2015) - Interior & comfort

There's plenty of leg and headroom inside the Nissan Navara, but it's noisy on the motorway

At motorway speeds, the Nissan Navara generates a noticeable amount of road and mechanical noise, which can become tiring on longer journeys.

Nissan Navara dashboard

The dashboard is another part of this car that reveals its commercial-vehicle roots. It’s certainly pleasant enough to look at, but its construction is more about longevity than tactility – there are plenty of hard plastics, but it all feels built to last.

There’s a refreshing simplicity to the design and all of the controls are easy to read and operate. The buttons are chunky enough to be operated while wearing gloves, which is important when working on a site.

Nissan Navara equipment

All Nissan Navara models feature a decent amount of standard equipment. The entry-level Visia is slightly agricultural compared to plusher models in the range, but still features alloy wheels, air-con, electrically adjustable door mirrors, remote central locking, a CD player and Bluetooth phone connectivity. The Visia is available in the Double Cab bodystyle only.

The Acenta is the only version to be available in the Double Cab and King Cab body styles, and it’s our pick of the range. It adds chrome trim, side steps, a leather steering wheel, gearstick and handbrake, driver-seat height adjustment, dual-zone climate control, heated door mirrors, cruise control, a trip computer and USB connectivity.

The Tekna model is Double Cab-only. It adds folding door mirrors, heated leather seats and an electrically operated driver’s seat, plus automatic headlights and windscreen wipers.

The Double Cab Outlaw V6 tops the range, featuring an electric sunroof, sat nav, hard-drive music storage and a Bose stereo system.

Nissan Navara options

Most of the Navara’s options are centred on practicality and usability, with various load-bed covers and liners on offer. Two different hardtops for Double Cab models are available, providing added security for any equipment stored inside. The X-Line Hardtop Pack, which includes a hard-top, bed liner and tailgate liner, is reasonably good value at £2,400.

The all-singing, all-dancing Nissan Connect Premium package, which features satellite navigation and a music server, is pricier, at £1,650.
