The DX work ute is the only Navara with a petrol engine, and it comes with 15-inch steel wheels and vinyl-covered floors.
Spend more for a Navara RX and you get 16-inch steel wheels and the less powerful of the two diesel engines. You also get a security alarm, tinted rear and side windows, a rear-window demister, fancier external mirrors and door handles, an interior fuel-flap release, and remote door unlocking via the key fob.
The RX also has a 12-volt outlet in its rear tub, which is handy for powering portable fridges, among other things.
Spending more for a Navara SL 4WD Dual Cab gets you the more powerful, twin-turbo, diesel engine in a package that retains rugged steel wheels and a work-friendly vinyl floor. The SL also has a 5-inch multi-function screen on the dashboard, with smartphone integration via Nissan Connect, and a reversing camera.
For more comfort and style in a Navara, you can opt for the more expensive Navara ST. That brings you fancier-looking 16-inch wheels made from an aluminium alloy, carpets on the floor, and satellite navigation. The steering wheel, gear change lever and handbrake lever are trimmed in leather, and there is a trip computer. Headlamps are a more effective, projector, design. Signature running lights give the car a more distinctive look. And the ST has foglights, side steps (which help you get in and out of the cabin), and a chrome sports bar for the tub (which can be handy for carrying long items).
Navara STs with four-wheel drive gain a locking rear differential, which gives you better drive in slippery or very rough conditions off road.
Pay more again for a Navara ST-X and you gain partial-leather seats, heating for the front seats, and power adjustment for the driver’s seat. Power-folding door mirrors are heated, for demisting in wet and cold weather. There are also four cameras to create a virtual overhead view. Sporty-looking 18-inch alloy wheels are accompanied by an alloy spare. (Other models have steel spare wheels.)
The ST-X also has a 7.0-inch touchscreen, and rear parking sensors (which tell you how close you are to obstacles immediately behind). An intelligent key allows you to unlock the car simply by touching a front door handle, provided the key is nearby (say, in a pocket or bag). There are moveable tie-down points in the rear tub and a heavy-duty plastic liner, and also roof rails, which make it easier to mount luggage systems.
On ST-X Dual Cabs, a power-operated sunroof is an extra-cost option.
Four-wheel drive versions of the ST-X have Hill Start Control, which prevents them from rolling backwards on steep hills, and Hill Descent Control, which prevents the vehicle from running away on steep off-road descents.
