    I am 191cm.

    I am able to sit behind the driver's seat (after it was adjusted to my preference) without much discomfort.

    And I have enough headspace as well.

    I ask the question because I drive a 3.2 Ranger that never gets close to the red line. So I'm not use to the higher revving newer diesel engines.

    Ek wou nou dieselfde vra. Dis nie waar nie.

    Eks self effe langer en pas gemaklik voor en agter en kon nou die dag n vergelyking doen toe ek agterin my broer se Hilux gery het. Het gevoel soos toe ons kinders was en die 4 van ons moes saam op die after sitplek van my Pa se Saphire sit tusse Port Shepstone en Kaapstad.

    I have owned Nissans for over 40 years, from progressing from Ford Cortinas and Minis to the Datsun 120Y ( my first car that never broke down ) in the 1970's. That 120Y was so reliable I was hooked with the brand and have only owned Nissans since then.
    I have never understood why the brand has not been more appreciated.
    The new Navara is an awesome vehicle and I really wish I could upgrade from my trusty D40. But most of the SA Bakkie public will probably not even test drive it.

    IMO the New Navara is a beauty. Have previously had a Ranger and Amarok, both were great, but next bakkie in the garage will definitely be the Navara. Engine is tried and tested, great value for money, SE spec is just what I am looking for.
    Hopefully will be lower risk in terms of crime, only time will tell based on the volume of sales etc, but when the time is right and the funds are there, I will gladly part with my hard earned rands for the Navara.
    Well done Nissan SA

    I hope that this venture is a success and we get better competition in the bakkie market. For one to drive down prices of especially Toyota en Isuzu.

    What is odd, here we are getting the 2.5 motor saw the latest test from down under and they are still getting the 2.3 engine. ST X model which is which fits above our LE, but below PRO 4X.

    Would think Ausies also got the 2.5 motor

    I think its because of the quality of some of our diesel.
    The 2.5 is better with dirty fuel

    Ek dink ook nie die 2.5 sal die uitlaatgasvereistes van AUS haal nie.

    "There is some firmness (you’ll know when you drive over hard ridges), but the ride is particularly stable on dirt. Is this the market’s best-riding bakkie on mixed road surfaces?"

    Ek kan ook in klein spasies inpas vir kort rukkies.

    Ek sal nie vir 700km agter in a double cab kan sit nie.

    Moenie skiet nie. Ek is 'n Nissan fan!
