Nissan Navara Trek-1° limited edition now on sale

  • Fully loaded limited edition lifestyle pickup
  • Just 400 examples on sale, priced from £29k
  • Sporty load cover, LED spots, 18-inch wheels

Nissan has launched a new limited edition version of its NP300 Navara pickup called the Trek-1° – here's what you need to know.

Priced from £29,220 (or £35,065 including VAT), it costs £2,863 more than the top-spec Navara Tekna grade it’s based on, but includes a whole host of bespoke extras – including sport styling bars with LED spot lamps, 18-inch black alloy wheels and an unusual hard plastic load area cover.

Just 400 examples will be available to UK buyers, all in the double cab bodystyle, powered by Nissan’s 190hp 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel engine.

Mercedes-Benz X-Class vs Nissan Navara - what's the difference?

Smartest-looking pickup on sale?

The Navara is already one of the more attractive pickups on the market, and the Trek-1°’s add-ons only enhance its appeal.

Nissan Navara Trek-1 - Black Metallic front

Combined with the choice of Black Metallic or the exclusive Storm White paint, the black-finished accessories – new side styling bars also included – are very much on-trend right now, and give this version an even more purposeful stance.

The sporty load cover is unique to the Trek-1° and coloured to match the bodywork; with a hinge near the cab and gas struts to lift it, it effectively turns the Navara into a giant hatchback.

The load area is fitted with a liner and a divider as standard, keeping items secure while preventing damage to the truck’s bodywork. There’s a light on the underside of the load cover, too.

High level of standard equipment

Most of the enhancements for the limited edition are cosmetic – but that’s largely because the Navara Tekna it’s based on is already fully loaded with standard equipment.

All of the following are fitted as standard:

Standard safety kit includes Hill Descent Control, Hill Start Assist and Forward Emergency Braking (similar to AEB) – in addition to the usual electronic stability control.

A seven-speed automatic gearbox, a tow bar and a locking rear differential are optional.

Good value?

If you like your pickups with a lot of attitude, it certainly seems good value to us. The Navara is among the very best to drive on the road – thanks to its multilink, coil spring rear suspension – and has a 3.5-tonne towing capacity as well as the typical one-tonne payload rating.

It does cost a little more than the similarly accessorised Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP we’ve just reviewed, but the difference isn’t huge and we do feel you’d be getting a better pickup.

We’ll have a review of the Nissan Navara Trek-1° up on the Parkers Vans site next week.
