Still running well behind arch-rival, Toyota’s LandCruiser, in the sales race the changes announced this afternoon by Nissan include:
- Updated infotainment system (with multi-touch panel)
- The addition of two USB charging points at rear of console
- Extra front and rear parking sensors for easier parking
- Tweaked styling front and rear
- New-look 18” alloy wheels
While the top-spec Nissan Patrol Ti-L picks up larger 8” screens (in back of front head rests) for the added enjoyment of rear seat passengers.
The Australian front-end though is expected to be different to that vehicle and we will bring you a look at the Aussie version as soon as possible.
Nissan Australia boss, Stephen Lester, says the changes, particularly the extra parking sensors, make the model an even more attractive proposition for families and adventurers.
“Rear view cameras and 360 all-round views are important on larger SUVs, but doubling the parking sensors to four at the front and four at the rear will make parking, and the manoeuvring of the vehicle in tight spaces, significantly easier.”
Powered exclusively by a 298kW/560Nm 5.6 litre V8 petrol engine, the 2018 Nissan Patrol range is priced from $71,990 (Ti) and $88,990 (Ti-L).
