The DX work ute is the only Navara NP300 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 (while retaining the more powerful diesel). 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. 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-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.
