Nissan has taken the wraps off a hardcore 4x4 derivative of the Navara bakkie. Meet the Nissan Navara Off-Roader AT32.
Nissan has teamed up with Arctic Trucks, famous for its Iceland 4x4 bakkies, to build the Navara Off-Roader AT32. There's been extensive work done to the Navara to make it even more capable than before.
The entire underbody is shielded with lightweight aluminium material to protect the vital components. There are also 31-inch Nokian tyres which boast dual valves for quick inflation. These tyres are said to improve the economy and "enhance on-road handling without compromising its off-road ability', which is quite a claim for offroad rubber.
There are also bespoke all-terrain wheel arch extensions as well as all-terrain Bilstein performance suspension. If the chunky bodywork and huge tyres didn't indicate what you're looking at, there's special badge on the front wings, arches, side steps, tail gate and mud guards. For those owners wanting even more from their Nissan Navara Off-Roader AT32, an electronic lock for the front differential and an intake snorkel are available, the latter increases the wading depth to 800 mm.
“The Nissan Navara Off-Roader AT32 was a sell-out success and proved incredibly popular with adventurers seeking elegance and toughness,” said Manuel Burdiel, General Manager Europe, LCV Sales and Business Development. “We have upgraded the Off-Roader AT32 so it can maintain its position as the ultimate Navara while bringing new efficiency and becoming fully WLTP compliant. It’s the perfect blend of in-car technology, comfort and extreme off-road performance.”
The Nissan Navara Off-Roader AT32 goes on sale from February 2020 across Europe. Should it come to South Africa?
