Considered to be the Navara’s ‘Achilles-heal’, the updated 2017 Nissan Navara welcomes revised shock absorbers all-round and revised rear rebound dampers.
The 2017 Nissan Navara might look the same as before, but suspension revisions have made a big difference to coil-sprung versions of this popular ute. Despite minimal changes elsewhere, improvement in this area is worthy of a ‘Series 2’ moniker. While the 2017 Navara is not perfect, it’s a hell of a lot better.
Every Navara gets VDC, ABS and EBD, while the ST-X adds reversing sensors, Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control, but advanced safety technology like AEB and Lane Assist are missing from the specification sheet altogether.
The Navara received the maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating when crash tested in 2015.
