Default NP300 First Impressions?

Hey all!

I thought I would kick off this new section of the forums with a question!
What are your thoughts of the new Navara NP300?

Like the front, not a fan of the back. Not overly excited about the interior either. Hopefully they revise the looks in a couple years.

I dropped money on one, and it is arriving in 3 weeks.

The interior knocks it out of the ballpark. VERY comfy. Best on market at the moment!

In regards to the rear, I think its one of those cars that I think will grow on people. I wasnt interested at first, but it really grew on me and I fell in love with the vehicle.

It is a more 'mature' truck compaired to the 'work' truck that most people are used to from a duel cab. I like it..

I can see people that enjoy alot of off roading may not like it as much, but it is a fantastic vehicle.

All these new utes start to look the same, to me it has a Colorado/Triton look to it.

Same goes for the new range of mid sized 4x4s coming out, all look really similar

I prefer the interior of my Titanium, the exterior of the 300 looks OK and I think will grow on me but for the money I'm happy with the 2014 titanium. Plus I would never buy the 1st series of any car. Just my 2c

Cheers Justo

I want to see how the new coil rear end and shorter wheel base go off road recon it will shit all over the leaf rear end.

Economy ranging from 5.9 l/100 km freeway to 7.3 l /100 km city driving ? Surely that's not possible, that's looking more like Toyota Prius territory.
Would love to see the D22 make a comeback with this new engine, as they've done in past.

I need help, as I am just about to buy a new dual cab and was set on a Ranger XLT but I test drove a new ST Navara and was super impressed with the ride and quality feel, the engine I'm not sure about yet, I will test drive a XLT tomorrow, engine performance means a lot to me, so if the ranger feels significantly better in that area than, well it still will be a hard decision

I really love my D40, but drove my mates XLT and I would honestly go for it. Price was the factor for me, picked up my ST for $37k drive away, XLT was $52k drive away
