Three stars for reassessed Navara

Nissan’s Navara has been awarded three stars by EuroNCAP after it was reassessed by the European vehicle safety organisation.

Last month the Navara was given just one star in its initial crash test, but the Japanese manufacturer has since modified the pickup truck’s airbag control unit software.

In the original test the deployment of the airbag was delayed, leading to criticism from EuroNCAP.

The problem was limited to Navaras built between May and December last year. Nissan has since invited Navara owners to have the updated software installed in their vehicles at dealerships.

In the retest, the truck scored three stars for its adult occupant protection and full marks in the side impact test and toddler protection category.

It also scored two out of four stars for pedestrian protection.
