What’s that? It’s the newest Nissan Navara. We’ve already driven it, but this is our first go on British soil. Learn anything new? A bit. You’ll have read that Nissan has tried to infuse its ‘one-tonne’ truck - not how much it weighs, but how much it can carry - with crossover DNA, thus making it less agricultural to drive, more refined and therefore more appealing to folks who buy regular cars. But while the changes it has made - adding more sophisticated rear suspension, bling-ing up the interior, stuffing it full of all the active safety/parking/connectivity tech you’d expect of a Qashqai - have indeed made it more refined, it’s still some way short of a conventional SUV. A crossover-pick-up, this is not.
