Nissan is out to make heads turn as it rolls out the recent variant of its award-winning truck Navara: the new Nissan Navara Sport Edition, which comes with a sporty performance upgrade.

The new Navara Sport Edition comes in two variants, a 2.5L 4×4 VL 7AT and a 2.5L 4×2 7AT Calibre edition, priced P1,656,000 and P1,275,000, respectively.

Both variants come in two color options: Riptide Blue and Aspen White.



Nissan upgraded its powerhouse truck with a more muscular and sportier appeal. A new honeycomb grille in front is mated to a new front skirt and fog lamps wrapped in dark chrome finish.

It’s the 18-inch alloy wheels that seal the deal, however, keeping you driving at optimum performance through every terrain. At the back of the truck, a rail bed liner and sport roll bar give sporty flare to the road-tested truck.



Inside, the Navara’s got a soft spot to keep riders and passengers comfortable. The vehicle shows off premium styling with its leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift knob, armrest, and door trims. Zero-Gravity inspired seats add to the overall comfort by providing spinal support that reduces long-ride fatigue.



The Sport Edition Navara churns out power from a DOHC inline 4-cylinder, 16-valve engine with Variable Turbocharger (VGS) and Intercooler. It also carries a 7-speed automatic gearbox and a 2.5L engine.



According to SJ Huh, General Manager for Marketing of Nissan Philippines, Inc., the new Nissan Navara Sport Edition is projected for the “urban warrior,” which he describes as befitting to exude a “refined macho” appeal.



Meanwhile, Nissan President and Managing Director Ramesh Narasimhan believes that the new Navara is a truck that delivers all-around performance.



“Continuing the legacy of Nissan’s long pickup history, the brand once again exhibits innovation that excites with the new Nissan Navara Sport Edition, answering to the call of the consumers who are looking for a pickup that offers riding comfort, first-in-class features, and sportier look.”
