Calibre-X serves as Navara's sporty 4x2 variant

Following last year's introduction of the refreshed Navara, Nissan Philippines has launched a limited-edition variant of the pickup truck at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS).

Say hello to the Nissan Navara Calibre-X. Basically, the variant is a Pro-4X minus the 4x4, and is geared toward customers who want a sporty 4x2 right off the dealership.

For its exterior, it has adopted the 4x4 Pro-4X 's no chrome approach to its grille, side mirrors, door handles, roof rails, and even the Nissan emblem. It also has orange contrast accents on the fender, skid plate, and at the emblem lettering.

The new Calibre-X features standard zero-gravity seats and gets a similar leather interior treatment as the Pro-4X. For in-car entertainment purposes, the Calibre-X has Nissan's 8-inch touchscreen display audio that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with Bluetooth, USB, and iPod connectivity.

Under the hood is the same 2.5-liter turbocharged diesel engine found in higher-spec variants of the Navara. The engine produces 190 PS and 450 Nm of torque and is mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels.

The limited-edition model also comes with Nissan's Intelligent Mobility features and gets smart safety kits like a 7-inch advanced drive-assist display, driver attention alert, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, high-beam assist, a 360-degree around-view monitor, and moving object detection.

Other available safety features on the Navara Calibre-X are six airbags, anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, hill start assist, speed-sensing door locks, and ISOFIX anchors for child seats.

The Nissan Navara Calibre-X sells for PHP 1.526 million, which basically puts it just below the VL Calibre 4x2 A/T in terms of pricing. The limited-edition variant comes in three colors: Fiery Red, Galaxy Black, and Aspen Pearl White (additional PHP 15,000).
