The family’s defender

The Nissan Navara promises dependability as well as improvement in many aspects. Good news for South Africans- the Stealth will become a permanent fixture on our roads as this special edition won’t be limited like many others but let’s go find out why there will be more smiling faces on our roads.

The Concept

This Navara is ideal for the family looking for a multifunctional vehicle that can easily adapt from a workhorse to comfortable family transporter. It’s a remarkable all-rounder and offers terrific multi-functionality, perfect for the busy family.

The Look

The Nissan Navara Stealth has been designed to grab attention wherever you go, you will surely be the talk of the braai if you pull up in this beaut. The front end looks assertive and eager to attack challenging environments with a pitch black grille, orange accents in the bumper and upswept headlights that are also finished in Stealth embellishments. On that topic, LED projector headlights are elevated by twilight detection and LED signature daytime running lights. Additionally, there is also a pair of fog lights in the front and a LED high mounted stop light in the rear. To remind buyers that the vehicle is not only a pretty face but also a hard worker, the Stealth features sporty roof rails and a tubular sports bar. Continuing with the athletic theme, the side of the vehicle features black mirrors with an orange stripe, black door handles and black side steps with an orange band. The black 18-inch alloy wheels not only give the vehicle a proud road stance but also helps to highlight its orange, sporty aspects.

The Feel

Step inside and be engulfed by the Navara Stealth and its sheer sportiness. The cabin of this striking bakkie is similar to its predecessor but is embellished with its signatures to proclaim its exclusive status. Orange stitched leather seats are integrated into the Stealth to continue the design theme of pure athleticism. They are comfortable to sit in thanks to functions such as a 4-way and 8-way seat adjustment for the driver and passenger respectfully and heating. You can easily take an entire day of road tripping or gallivanting with the kiddies in this bakkie

The Features

The touchscreen infotainment system is equipped with a CD player, AM/FM radio, AUX and USB/iPod connectivity, Bluetooth Connectivity and Satellite Navigation. Cruise Control, dual zone climate control, Intelligent Key with remote keyless entry, push button engine start, power windows and a rear power sliding window have all been added into the Stealth to make every trip enjoyable and memorable.

This Nissan’s utility nature is assisted by 2 channel Utili-Track and three 12V power sockets of one are located in the load box. Driving aids listed in the Stealth include Traction and Vehicle Dynamic Control System, a Brake Limited Slip Differential, Brake Assist, Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control. You will always be aware of your surroundings with an Around View Monitor (360° camera) and reverse sensors. Additionally, you will find ISOFIX and a range of airbags in this family carrier.

The Drive

Powered  by a 2.3-litre twin turbo diesel engine, the Stealth pushes out 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque. It has a claimed fuel consumption of 7.0-litres per 100km but I think you will achieve a bit more than that. This four wheel drive vehicle is fitted with a 7 speed automatic transmission to simplify and enhance pleasure behind the wheel. When it’s time to pack up and hit the bush or dunes, the Navara will be ready as well with elevated ground clearance and a differential lock. Nissan has pulled the spanner out and fitted the Navara with a coil-spring rear suspension instead of the traditional leaf spring. This means that uneven roads will feel less bumpy and cornering is improved. Speaking of, through corners this beast also has an impressive amount of grip and minimal body roll, so you won’t spill your morning cup of Joe if you’ve overslept and are driving a wee bit faster than usual.
