2012 NISSAN NAVARA 2.5 DCI LE 4X4 MANUAL

It’s not only been dutifully doing the school run and taking everyone on holiday now and again, but Jakkie’s Navara has also pulled on the heartstrings of his family members.

There are very few vehicles on the market today that can legally tow a Jurgens Exclusive in terms of tare vs GVM weight ratios, still have almost a tonne of loading capacity and carry four in comfort, and that’s why my family loves this Navara. I affectionately refer to her as ‘Trokkie’ but my wife insists that this bakkie is on the small side to be called a truck.
