NP300 Navara: International Pick-Up Of The Year


Nov. 18 – Lyon, France – The all-new Nissan NP300 Navara has driven off with the coveted 2016 International Pick-up award 2016 at a ceremony held on Tuesday.

The Navarra claimed the title over competition, including the Mitsubishi L200 and Ford Ranger, as judges praised its superior on-road and off-road capabilities, strong engine performance and payload capacity.


The crown of International Pick-up Of The Year sends a strong signal in Europe’s fast-growing pick-up market.

“This prestigious award celebrates Nissan’s 80 years of pick-up expertise. Rigorous testing by International Pick-up of the Year illuminated the tough and innovative character of the all-new Navara,” said Philippe Guérin-Boutaud, Corporate Vice President Nissan LCV.

The new Navara goes on sale across Europe from January 2016, while production began in Barcelona this month.

“Nissan is best known by its customers in Europe as the maker of capable 4x4s and breakthrough crossovers. This new Navara represents the fusion of those two realms of excellence to deliver a truly breakthrough pickup truck that combines rugged 4×4 toughness with the sophistication and efficiency of a Crossover”, said Ponz Pandikuthira, Director of Light Commercial Vehicles for Nissan Europe.
