FebNewsMavaraTractor and farm Trader has placed the Nissan Navara at the top of their towing list in a recent test. Taking five of the most popular pick-ups, editor Howard Sherren and his team spent time putting them through their paces off-road with a trailer loaded with 300kg bales of hay.

The Navara had plenty of pulling power, excellent steering and comfort, with a firm ride it felt the most stable when towing and achieved the best traction. The VW Amarok followed closely on its heels with excellent build quality, new features and driveability. T&fT considered that the VW might be considered better value when compared to the V6 Outlaw Navara’s high purchase price.
