Nissan Navara Now Uses Euro 6 Engine, in Europe
Already the holder of the International Pick-up Award 2016, and renowned for its tough attitude and robust performance, the entire range of the Nissan Navara has now switched to a more advanced and eco-friendly Euro 6 engine. Well, in Europe at least; not yet here in Malaysia.
The upgrade covers both the 190PS twin-turbo and 160PS single turbo versions of the Navara’s 2.3-litre dCi diesel engine. It has made a significant difference to the pick-up’s environmental performance – a vital consideration for buyers because it affects running costs. CO2 emissions now start from as low as 159 g/km, a reduction of 8g/km on the predecessor Euro 5 engine. It’s an enhancement which makes the Nissan Navara the best in its class. Fuel consumption on the Official Combined Cycle has improved to 46.3mpg, up by 1.4mpg.
The Nissan Navara Euro 6 benefits from a reduction in oxides of nitrogen (NOx) thanks to the addition of a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. An AdBlue tank has been fitted to the Navara, with a filler flap on the opposite side of the vehicle to the diesel tank to avoid confusion.
It will hold 17 litres of liquid, allowing up to 7,150 miles between refills. Driver assistance messages relating to the AdBlue system have been integrated into the Navara’s colour LCD combimeter, the central information screen set between the two main dials.
A number of other enhancements have been made to the Nissan Navara’s specification:
- Idle-Stop System (ISS) for reduced fuel consumption is now standard on all Navara manual models
- One-tonne payload and 3.5-tonne towing capacity remain unchanged
