The Nissan Pathfinder is designed as a rugged, practical workhorse, and rivals the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Land Rover Discovery 4, Toyota Land Cruiser and Mitsubishi Shogun. It’s based on the same underpinnings as the Nissan Navara pick-up, but instead of two or four seats and a load bed it features a huge seven-seater

Double-cab Pick-ups are growing in popularity in Kenya – cars like the Nissan Navara provide an appealing alternative to a van if you need space to store work equipment, carry heavy loads but seat passengers in relative comfort.  The Navara is Nissan’s double cab pick-up version of its Pathfinder seven-seater, and carries over many

Toyota Land Cruiser V8 review

Now the V8 came to right the wrongs of the TX. Toyota claims offers more comfort and better handling, while retaining its renowned off-road ability.  The V8 replaces the Amazon – the smaller standard Land Cruiser continues unchanged – and the first thing that strikes you is its humongous size.
