2012 Nissan Navara First Drive
22 February 2012
There’s a gunfight brewing in the diesel dual-cab ute market. Last year the segment accounted for more than 75,000 sales, and it’s growing, with impressive new contenders emerging on a regular basis, aimed as much at tradies as recreational and family buyers.
Perennial favourites, Nissan Navara and Toyota HiLux, which together account for around 50 per cent of diesel dual-cab sales, are no longer clearcut choices, with the likes of the Volkswagen Amarok and Ford Ranger/Mazda BT-50 raising the bar over the last 12 months.
