Three Unusual Reasons Why The Nissan Stealth Is Awesome

www.Cars.co.za – Small bakkies are becoming mightily impressive – and not just in terms of what they can carry. However at 800kg, which is the largest payload capacity in the segment, the Nissan NP200 is not exactly found wanting.

Where South Africa’s most popular sub-tonne bakkie could improve is the looks. In plain, workhorse white, I think you could arrive in your friend’s driveway only to be mistaken for a Telkom technician. Or a courier van.

The thing is, we spend most of our time sitting inside the bakkie, so that’s where we really need the car to shine. And in an age of constant connectivity, what we really care about is safely making a handsfree call over Bluetooth. And a USB port would be nice.

Thankfully Nissan have addressed all of these concerns with the Limited Edition NP200 Stealth. Based on the NP200 which sells incredibly well in South Africa, the Stealth has the same 1.6 engine, the same impressive load capacity and the same 6 year/150 000km warranty of any other NP200, but it looks really, really cool.

Customised body paint, wheels and decals separate it from any other NP200 on the road, and for the same price as the normal NP200 1.6 S, Nissan will throw in a huge list of extras, all of which are featured in our video.

But we thought at that price, perhaps owning this little bakkie is in some ways better than owning a small car. Which we’ve tried our best to demonstrate…

    there is nothing stealthy about that NP200, that car is slow, you can be overtaken by a Canal Boat.

    chuck in a VW VR6, SR20, VAG 1.8T 20V, KA24DET in that np200

    don't bother turboing that k7m waste of time

    Why buy a Nissan if you are going to get a Renault that will cost the same as a Renault to run??
