Mud plugging patrons of the Chorley Group were given the chance to put the new Nissan NP300 Navara through its paces at a special off-road experience day.
The award-winning, family-run group took 80 customers to Trax in Preston to demonstrate the pick-ups credentials across a number of obstacles on a purpose-built course.
Adam Turner, Chorley Group Sales Director, said: “The purpose of the event was to give customers an insight into both the off-road and on-road capabilities of the new NP300 Navara.
“It was also a chance for customers to develop their driving skills under expert tuition and gain a greater understanding of vehicle control.
“We set them a series of challenges which tested their ability to navigate different types of terrain such as steep inclines, descents, side slopes and water crossings.”
Matthew Lockley, one of the customers at the event, added: “It was great fun. I currently own a Navara but I’d never previously had the chance to test its true off-road capabilities in an environment like that.
“The new Navara has a number of new features, including Hill Descent, so it was great to be able to put it to the test and see how it compares to the model it’s replacing."
The Chorley Group, which has been crowned Nissan UK Retailer of the Year for the sixth consecutive year, has dealerships in Chorley, Preston, Wigan, Blackpool and Burnley.
Nissan’s NP300 launched in dealerships in January and is expected to enter the UK’s top three top selling pick-ups in 2016, with around 7,500 to 8,000 sales.
Visia, Acenta, Acenta+ and Tekna specifications are available to customers, with prices starting from £18,376.
