Nisan has refreshed its NP200, built at the automaker's Rosslyn factory, with new materials and equipment designed to, the automaker says, "make the cabin even more appealing".

According to Nissan: "Nissan has begun fitment of all-new cabin materials and additional specification on certain models to further improve the NP200’s value offering to both private and fleet buyers.

"With this upgrade the NP200 receives a fresh, new interior look featuring new upholstery and a new audio system on specific models. Engineers have also refreshed the controls on the centre console."

New trim

Inside, it gains new upholstery, new audio system (on specific models) and the centre console has been upgraded. On all entry level derivatives, the seat- and door-trim will change to, the automaker says, "hard-wearing black textured fabric", with a vinyl inlay on the seat bolsters and sides.

For the mid-specification bakkie, Nissan has opted for black and grey patterned fabric for the seats and door panels. The seats gain black cloth along the seat bolsters and black vinyl inlays on the seat-backs.

The 1.6 16V and 1.5 dCi versions sport black-and-grey textured fabric and door panels, with black woven cloth on the sides and bolsters.

All mid and high-grade versions also receive a new audio system that features radio, CD and MP3 with USB, Aux and Bluetooth connectivity.

The controls for the heating, ventilation and aircon are black with chromed surrounds, mirroring those found in the automaker's crossover vehicle range.

Production of the upgraded NP200 has already started with the first units set to be available, the automaker says, "at Nissan dealers across South Africa before the holiday season."
