Nissan Navara Aventura X-Back UK version

Japanese carmaker Nissan developed the Navara Aventura X-Back. Exclusivity comes courtesy of a stylish hard top load cover providing a unique design yet still retaining a high cargo volume. The new hard top was sculpture-led by the design center of Nissan based in London. The result is a visually arresting design with a distinctive look made all the more stylish by the use of privacy glass and a gloss black finish to the rear pillars, creating a continuous sweep from one side to the other. The pickup body is provided by a rear door handle cover finish matching that of the tailgate handle. The high quality finish continues inside with all internal surfaces trimmed in a dark grey carpet with the exception of the rear door which has the same paint finish as the exterior. In terms of safety, the carmaker provided an internal laver that allows the rear door to be opened from the inside. The hard top it features is made from composite material SMC, which is similar to glass reinforced plastic, but with a uniform layered construction making it particularly though and light for easy installation. The finish is also resistant to minor impacts, its heat expansion properties are identical to the steel body panels and last, but not least, SMC can be recycled. Just like other Navaras, the X-Back offers SUV levels of comfort, refinement and performance while still offering quality. Under the hood it hides a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine capable of developing 171 PS and 403 Nm of torque. Drive is transmitted to the road by a tried and tested 4-wheel drive system. The extensive spec includes side bars and chunky chrome back bumper, 17-inch alloy wheels, electric and heated door mirrors, front fog lights, automatic headlamps with washers, roof rails and also rain sensing. In terms of safety, the new model was equipped with front, side and curtain airbags plus active front headrests.
