Nissan Navara 2018

The 2018 Nissan Navara range of configurations is currently priced from $21,990. Our most recent review of the 2018 Nissan Navara resulted in a score of 8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing Journalist Tim Robson had this to say at the time:   It's taken a couple of attempts, but Nissan has finally built the truck it's always intended to build, when it released the Navara D23 back in 2015. Its main point of difference is the fact that it rides on more comfortable coil suspension – and now that that suspension actually works, the Navara rises towards the top of the heap when it comes to around-town stability and comfort in the 4x4 dual cab segment.

The 2018 Nissan Navara carries a braked towing capacity of up to 3500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

The Nissan Navara is also known as the Nissan Frontier (North America), the Nissan NP300 (Mexico and the Europe) in markets outside Australia.

Nissan Navara 2018 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Navara 2018 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What can I do if the steering wheel and gear knob are peeling in my 2018 Nissan Navara?

    This is a more common problem than you might imagine and applies to a lot of cars besides Nissan Navaras. It’s not always caused by people with constantly wet hands or those who work with chemicals, either; a lot of pampered vehicles have seen this type of problem.

    As well as being pretty ordinary to look at day after day, this sort of damage also devalues a car when you go to sell it. The warranty on your Navara would have been for the first three years (Nissan shifted to a five-year warranty mid-2019) but because it was a demonstrator, the warranty period would have started from the date it was first registered or reported as sold, not the day you bought it.

    Most new-car warranties also state that `normal wear and tear’ is not covered, but there’s an argument that normal wear and tear shouldn’t be visible on a steering wheel after just four years and 60,000km of use.

    If it really bothers you, there are motor trimmers who can stitch on a new leather covering which I would expect to last a lot longer than four years. You would, of course, have to remove the wheel from the car which requires somebody who knows their air-bag safety drills and procedures.

  • Is the Toyota HiLux or Nissan Navara a better work vehicle?

    I would rank the Hilux marginally better than the Navara, but there’s little to separate them. Both are similar for safety, rated at 4 stars they have the most essential safety gear in terms of airbags and ABS braking, the Hilux gets the nod on reliability, running costs are dependent on which engine you chose, and I would suggest you don’t buy a V6 petrol Hilux as they are thirsty, but the Toyota has capped-price servicing which makes it attractive.

  • Nissan Navara 2018: Engine vibration

    At this stage you should work with the dealer to resolve your concerns. They are already switching tyres to see if the higher speed vibration is due to the tyres, which is a sign they want to work with you. With the other concerns I would urge you to demonstrate them to the dealer, so they are in no doubt as to what it is you don’t like, and press them to find and fix the cause.

  • Nissan Navara: Suitable for towing?

     Both have a 3500kg towing rating, so will tow most caravans with ease, but you also need to be aware of the Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) and Gross Combination Mass (GCM) and make sure you don’t exceed them when loaded.
