JOHANNESBURG, South Africa –  Nissan SA launched a new version of its Navara double-cab in June 2021 but now comes a single-cab, assembled in SA and ”ready to work”.

Stefan Haasbroek, Nissan SA’s marketing director, told The Corner: ”The single cab comes with an impressive list of best-in-class features – among them high levels of safety and security such as driver and passenger crash-mitigation bags anti-lock brakes, and electronic brake-pressure distribution.”

The single-cab 2.5-litre D0HC petrol engine (XE grade) can provide 118kW/233Nm but the 2.5-litre diesel has a choice of two engines: 140kW/450Nm but the mid-output (XE and SE) are powered by a 2.5-litre with dual-overhead camshafts, direct injection, turbocharger/intercooler diesel capable of 120kW/403Nm – claimed by Nissan to be the most powerful in its class.
