Nissan's new NP200 bakkie has received a turbodiesel boost with the introduction of the 1.5dCi model.

Like the 1,6-litre NP200s, the diesel model has a loading capacity of 800 kg, while Nissan says that its baby bakkie boasts a load area which is the longest (at 1807mm) and has the highest volume in its class.

The NP200 dCi is available in two specification levels, a Base and a High spec. The better-equipped of the two adding key safety features such as ABS and airbags, an audio system, 15-inch alloy wheels and body-coloured bumpers.

There is also 300 litres of stowage capacity behind the front seats.

- NP200 1.5dCI High-Spec: R174 000
