Nissan Navara vs Ford Ranger (2017) Comparative Review Video Part 1

We put the new Nissan Navara to the test against the new Ford Ranger FX-4! Watch the video to see how these double-cab bakkies fare in Part 1 of our test. 

The bakkie market is truly thriving in South Africa and motorists have never had so much choice. The Ranger FX-4 is a new edition to the leisure bakkie market and South Africans had to wait a good while for the new Nissan Navara to arrive in local showrooms, but it is finally here and Nissan is confident that this is the bakkie to set new standards in the segment.

In part 1 of this head-to-head test, we review the on-road comfort of the Navara and Ranger FX4 and take a detailed look at the interiors.

We also properly test their load capacity with the help of our friends at the Backsberg wine farm. It involves a forklift...

We couldn't have made this video without the generous help of the people at the beautiful Backsberg Estate. With a top-notch restaurant, wine tasting and cellar store on the property, the winery is leading the way in terms of modern farming practices - it was the first carbon neutral wine farm in South Africa.
