A NEW entertainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto tops a raft of tweaks to the 2019 Nissan Navara line-up.
Navara SL, ST and ST-X dual- and king-cab models have all been upgraded with Alliance In-Vehicle Infotainment (AIVI), a system which loses the CD player but adds a redesigned interface and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. An 8.0-inch touchscreen replaces the outgoing 5.0- and 7.0-inch screens, while AM/FM radio, USB, AUX and Bluetooth functionality all remain.
Sat-nav integration via device mirroring is now available with SL models, with the upper-spec ST and ST-X models getting a new TomTom sat-nav system.
“Nissan is pleased to introduce Apply CarPlay and Android Auto to Nissan Navara,” said Nissan Australia managing director Stephen Lester. “We took the opportunity to introduce this technology with our updated infotainment system – one that not only looks great but is modern, simple and intuitive to connect to and use.”
In addition, Nissan has brushed black paint on the headlamp bezel (SL, ST and ST-X) and side steps (ST).
The Navara 4x4 range is available with either the 120kW/403Nm 2.3-litre turbo-diesel or the 140kW/450Nm 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel, which can both be mated to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission.
Despite the upgrades across the range, prices remain unchanged.
