Hello there. Process of elimination really. The Ranger Wildtrak 3.2 doesnt quality as a commercial vehicle for tax (specifically BIK) purposes if you fit a hardtop or cover, the old Amarok was underpowered and the new Amarok commands an extra £15k (fully specced out) over the Navara, also I needed a vehicle for April, VW couldn't supply until June so didnt have a choice in the end. Finally, the new Hilux seemed to be rated just slightly under the Navara in the motoring press, despite its historical reputation. On balance, given the features of the Navara, the 5 years 100,000 warranty and a £99 4 year servicing pack, the Navara pegged the Hilux at the post.Hello mate. What made you pick the nav out of everything else on offer?
I didn't really look at american trucks or the Isuzu/Mercedes/Fiat/Renault offerings, as I think the Merc and Renault are based on the Navara anyway and Isuzu I'd likely buy if I was a farmer. Fiat...well, it's a Fiat.
PS. The 17% off the Navara that I was offered also swayed me I have to say.
