As every car wants to qualify and even win a COTY award (Car Of The Year), every pick-up truck sold in Europe wants to become the International Pickup of the Year distinction.

Recently launched in Europe, but also all around the world, the new generation Nissan NP300 navara managed to reach the top position this year.

The new NP300 Navara underwent the International Pick-up testing process, each being judged for its off-road ability, on-road performance and its value for money. They were also tested on their ability as a workhorse, which included comparing towing capabilities.

It had to fought off stiff competition from  the  Mitsubishi L200 and Ford Ranger, but managed to top the rankings, being awarded the International Pickup of the Year Award. 

Nissan is best known by its customers in Europe as the maker of capable 4x4s and breakthrough crossovers.  This new Navara represents the fusion of those two realms of excellence to deliver a truly breakthrough pickup truck that combines rugged 4×4 toughness with the sophistication and efficiency of a Crossover”, said Ponz Pandikuthira, Director of Light Commercial Vehicles for Nissan Europe.
