New Nissan Navara VL Plus Now with Intelligent Around View Monitor
Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM) today introduced a new addition to the Navara model line-up, the Nissan Navara VL Plus, with Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) technology and enhanced safety features.
The new Navara VL Plus is equipped with Intelligent Around View Monitor (I-AVM), a Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) technology which uses 4 cameras to provide a 360° bird’s-eye view of the vehicle for easier navigation in tight spots and tricky parking situations.
7 SRS Airbags (dual front, side and curtain airbags, as well as driver knee airbag) are also included for added protection, while the new Digital Speedometer housed within the Advance Driver-Assist Display offers more driving convenience.
“Imagine a whole new driving experience, moving through life with more excitement, confidence and connection to the world around you. Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) offers that through Intelligent Around View Monitor (I-AVM), which is available on our 3 best-selling models; X-Trail, Serena S-Hybrid and now the Navara”, said Mr Christopher Tan, Sales and Marketing Director of ETCM.
The Navara VL Plus remains unchanged in delivering a dynamic driving performance; with a 2.5 litre turbo intercooler diesel engine that outputs 190 PS and 450 Nm of torque, and fitted with a first-in-class 7-speed automatic transmission with manual mode for an invigorating drive.
Additionally, the Navara is the first Japanese pickup in Malaysia with a Multi-Link Rear Suspension System that offers an unprecedented driving comfort and handling, similar to SUVs. Along with Zero Gravity Inspired Seats, comfort is further enhanced as it eliminates driver fatigue on long journeys. Whether for recreational or business use, the Navara is a reliable double-cab pickup that can accommodate a full payload of one tonne.
The new Nissan Navara VL Plus comes with 5-years or 150,000km (whichever comes first) warranty, and is also available in the aggressive Black Series package.
The Navara VL Plus will make its appearance in the upcoming Nissan Nationwide Test Drive Carnival at selected showrooms over 2 weekends (4 th to 5 th August and 11 th to 12 th August), starting from 10am to 8pm. Members of the public are invited to visit the Nissan Nationwide Test Drive Carnival and be the first to experience the new Navara VL Plus.
