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.

Limited to just 500 units, the N-Sport Black Edition is based on the ST-X Dual Cab 4x4 variant (from $51,990), adding an array of exterior enhancements for extra visual appeal.

Headlining extras include a black sports bar, black nudge bar, an LED light bar, black wheel arch flares, 18-inch black alloy wheels, black gloss honeycomb grille, smoked chrome fog-light finishers, a black soft tonneau cover, N-Sport badging and 'Black Edition' decals.

Features carried over from the base car include a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation, a rear-view camera, rear parking sensors, and leather trim.

Under the bonnet is the same 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, developing 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque.

Pricing starts at the aforementioned $54,490 with the six-speed manual, or $56,990 with the seven-speed automatic.

The Nissan Navara N-Sport Black Edition is available to order now.
