Nissan Navara NP300 gains a 5-star ANCAP safety rating
In completely expected news the Nissan Navara NP300 has scored a top 5-star ANCAP safety rating.
A 5-star safety rating is now the norm, and even new utes are expected to achieve it so it is no surprise the NP300 has top-scored.
What’s notable in this case is that the rating applies across the range – all single, extra (king) and dualcab variants, whereas in some cases with utes not all variants have been 5-star rated, only the 4WD dualcabs.
Nissan made a change to a child restraint point, and the Navara scored 35.01 out of a maximum of 37 for dual and extracabs, and 34.01 for the single cabs. The minimum for a 5-star rating is 32.5 out of 37.
All Nissan Navara safety ratings:
- Navara NP300 – tested 2015 – 5 star
- Navara D40 – tested 2014 – 4 star
- Navara D22 – tested 2012, 2013, 2014 – 3 star
As time goes on, a 5-star rating becomes progessively harder to achieve so a 5-star in 2015 is better than a 5-star in 2010.
