I’ve always loved the 5-door hatch-back. Back in my youth, the Honda Civic was a favourite. My own car today is a Volkswagen Golf. A great combination of useable space, thrifty economics in terms of running costs, and occasionally a great drive when the moment and environment is right. As a result I was very much looking forward to my first proper experience in an all-electric car that was also a 5-door hatch. And so my week with the Nissan Leaf began.
In 2019 the Light Commercial / Truck segment made up 114,428 units representing 21.2% of all cars sold in Australia. That’s 13 new Light Trucks / Utes being delivered every hour – 24×7 – every day of the year! When you look at what’s on offer in this segment, you can certainly see what the appeal is for literally tens of thousands of people. There is no shortage of models and options and some very good engineering. The Nissan Navara N-TREK is no exception.
