The Nissan Navara N-Sport Black Edition has arrived on Australian shores this week, with the tough-looking special-edition ute kicking off at $54,490 before on-road costs.

Nissan acknowledges 'missed opportunities' with product, addresses regional customers

Nissan in large part cut its teeth in Australia with a strong range of bush-ready vehicles, typified by the previous iterations of the Patrol wagon and cab-chassis. Yet the company's global shift away from this - think of the still-capable, yet luxury-focused petrol V8 Patrol, and the cushy monocoque Pathfinder crossover as examples - mean its local portfolio is conceptually quite different to what it once was...

Mercedes-Benz X-Class v Nissan Navara: Styling face-off

With today's unveiling of the new, first-ever Mercedes-Benz X-Class ute, comes the inevitable 'first glance' comparison with its platform donor, the Nissan Navara. The 2018 X-Class is not the first vehicle to be spun off the Navara, of course. Last year, thanks to the long-running alliance between Nissan and French car maker Renault, we saw the latter reveal its own Navara-based ute: the Alaskan...

Richard Emery, managing director and CEO of Nissan's local arm, told CarAdvice at the launch of the updated X-Trail range that a Ford Everest rival is still under consideration, though it's not a prime focus for the brand...

Nissan Navara SL directly driven by customer demand and feedback

Nissan's new Navara SL variant was created as a direct result of customer demand and feedback, with the company focusing its efforts on the rugged tradie that wants a good looking, honest workhorse. Speaking with CarAdvice at the recent Nissan Navara SII launch, Nissan Australia senior manager of product planning, Adrian Sciacca, said that Nissan is constantly listening to customers in the hunt for the right vehicle configuration...

Nissan Australia sales "a little off the pace", Wildtrak rival under consideration

Nissan Australia has admitted that its local sales performance is "a little off the pace", with a month-on-month improvement required to bring the brand back to target. But, speaking exclusively with CarAdvice at the recent Navara SII and Pathfinder launch, Nissan Australia boss Richard Emery suggested that while the company is behind on sales, it's not overly concerned...

January Sales: Toyota HiLux edges Ranger and Colorado

Now that we’re acclimatised to the idea of a light commercial being the nation’s top-selling vehicle for a calendar year, we can watch the market with a different set of eyes. We’re only one month into 2017, but the January figures for ute sales make for interesting reading, mostly on account of the ever-growing Toyota HiLux versus Ford Ranger battle — billed by some as the new Commodore v Falcon rivalry...
