The Mercury Cars Guide : February 27th 2010
Saturday, February 27, 2010 Classifieds 62 300 400 carsguide.com.au ---23 MARKING THEIR TERRITORY: The latest models of Nissan's Navara and Pathfinder will reach Australia in May. Nissan playing it safe Down Under It's only a mid-life facelift, but Nissan is clearly pointing to its conservative future with the new Navara and Pathfinder. Neil Dowling reports It's an expensive engine and we have to be careful that it doesn't push the Navara and Pathfinder into price segments where it won't be justified.' NISSAN'S 2010 versions of the Navaro and Pathfinder are virtually ident- ical to their current incarnations and will retain the same petrol V6 and a more muscular four-cylinder turbo-diesel en- gine range. ESC becomes standard, taking the ute into safer territory. The bad news for Australian performance- seekers is that the European-spec Navara and Pathfinder, to be unveiled at next week's Geneva Motor Show, come with an optional 170kW/550Nm three-litre V6 turbo-diesel. Nissan Australia corporate communications boss Jeff Fisher says that engine isn't in the new line-up when the refreshed wagon and ute arrive here in May. ''It's not for our market, at least not yet,'' he says. ''There may be a trickle-down through the markets in the future. It's an expensive engine and we have to be careful that it doesn't push the Navara and Pathfinder into price segments where it won't be justified. ''I understand that the V6 is more for a sports- oriented vehicle in Europe.' The Renault's V6 turbo-diesel is the same unit that slots into the next Patrol. Nissan's Navara is Europe's best-selling ute and its covered twin, the Pathfinder, is also up there on the sales charts. It's not the same story in Australia, where Pathfinder has a 1.9 per cent segment share compared with Holden Captiva at 21.7 per cent and Toyota Prado at 17.5 per cent. However, the Navara 4WD models are second only to the Toyota Hilux. For 2010 the 2.5-litre turbo-diesel four gets an 11 per cent rise in both power and torque to 140kW and 450Nm respectively. Nissan claims the engine tweaks have better fuel economy, now 8.5l/100km --- an improve- ment of 1.3l/100km --- for the manual trans- mission model. Emissions have slipped from 40g/km CO2 to 224g/km. The Euro option is a new direct-injection V6 turbo-diesel from the Renault Nissan Alliance. This narrow-vee engine --- its angle is a mere 65 degrees --- has a 16:1 compression ratio that has been lowered to improve fuel economy, emis- sions and noise, vibration and harshness. It has a large single turbocharger, mounted within the vee of the engine, an intercooler, and the latest-generation Bosch 1800-bar common- rail fuel injection with piezo injectors. Power is 170kW and torque is 550Nm, the latter from 1700rpm and flat through to 2500rpm. It has 500Nm from 1500rpm. Nissan says the engine in the Pathfinder will pull a 3500kg load, while the Navara is good for 3000kg. Externally the Aussie-bound ute and wagon get a touch-up with a new bonnet, grille and bumper (the latter adding 80mm to the length), with xenon headlights for the Pathfinder and optional 18-inch alloys. New equipment includes the Nissan Connect Premium touch-screen satellite navigation system, a premium Bose sound system and a rear-view camera. There is also a speed limiter incorporated into the existing cruise control system. Electronic stability control, already standard on the Pathfinder, gets added to the Navara specifications. The 2.5-litre turbo-diesel engine vehicles debut at next week's Geneva Motor Show and go on sale in Europe in April. The V6 versions follow two months later. Australia gets the new models in May with the 2.5 turbo-diesel and four-litre petrol V6.
