LCVs: Bold new look for Nissan Cabstar

NISSAN has revealed pictures of the new Cabstar to be launched in October as part of an aggressive product strategy in the European LCV market.

Designed and developed in Japan, the new Cabstar promises best-in-class payload combined with compactness, impressive man-oeuvrability and best-in-class cargo length. In addition, cost of ownership will be among the lowest available, thanks to quicker and easier maintenance, longer service intervals and reduced fuel consumption.

Three new engine options are available. A 2.5-litre common rail diesel engine in two levels of tune provides 108bhp and 128bhp and 184lb-ft and 199lb-ft of torque.

A 3.0-litre unit will offer 147bhp and 258lb-ft of torque.

There are three different wheelbase options: 2,500mm, 2,900mm and 3,400mm and two different cab configurations, single tilt and double-cab.

Europe will be the first region to see the Cabstar, with sales starting from January 2007.
