NISSAN SAFETY SHIELD
SURROUNDING YOU WITH CONFIDENCE
The Nissan Safety Shield philosophy is a comprehensive approach to safety that guides the engineering and development of every vehicle we make. We help protect you and your passengers by focusing on three key areas: keeping an eye on your vehicle’s systems, assisting in handling unexpected situations, and helping to keep you safe in the unfortunate event of an accident.
ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEMS
The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps prevent wheel lockup by pumping the brakes faster than you ever could during sudden-braking situations, helping you steer around obstacles to avoid a collision.
We gave the NP300 Hardbody an advanced anti-theft system that uses a chip embedded in the key to trigger a unique starting code, so your vehicle always knows it’s you.
DUAL FRONT AIRBAG SRS
Dual front airbags plus 3-point seatbelts provide an extra measure of safety. After all, it makes good business sense to ensure that everything – and everyone – arrives safely.
THE ULTIMATE BUSINESS TOOL
Your business needs to perform in all conditions, so the NP300 Hardbody rises to the challenge. With a range of petrol and diesel engines that combine low fuel consumption with long service intervals, it performs as well on the books as it does on the job.
The NP300 Hardbody offers two petrol engines to help you get the job done. Choose from a 2.0-litre engine that delivers 84kW and 169Nm of torque (available only in the Single Cab), or opt for even more power in the 2.4-litre engine – a full 105kW and 205Nm of torque.
DRIVEN TO EXTREMES
All the torque and power in the world won’t do you any good if you can’t transfer that power to the ground. That’s why we gave the NP300 Hardbody a reliable yet economical 5-speed manual transmission, along with available extras such as shift-on-the-fly 4-wheel drive and a limited-slip differential.
TAME THE TOUGHEST CONDITIONS
Built to dominate even the most extreme environments, the NP300 Hardbody is engineered with increased stopping power, high ground clearance, a sturdy, closed-section ladder-type frame, and a reinforced chassis to help it take on any terrain.
CLOSED-SECTION LADDER-TYPE FRAME
With a name like the NP300 Hardbody, you know it’s built tough. Nowhere is this more evident than in its sturdy, closed-section ladder-type frame. Incorporating five strength-enhancing crossmembers, it delivers the kind of durability that makes this pickup Africa’s first choice for toughness.
VENTED FRONT DISC BRAKES
Adverse conditions abound in Africa, which is why we gave the NP300 Hardbody the added stopping power of ventilated front disc brakes. Providing greater fade resistance than non-ventilated discs, these brakes will help ensure your cargo – and passengers – arrive safely.
