Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM) is pleased to announce that the Nissan Navara Calibre 4×2 has won the “Best Value For Money Pickup Truck” Category at The Asian Auto-Vehicle Certification Agency (Asian Auto-VCA) Auto Industry Awards 2010.

This award was presented to Mr. Aven Yong, General Manager of Marketing Communications at the awards presentation ceremony recently.

“Malaysians have finally realized that a 4×4 pickup is not all that necessary when it is used for tarmac city driving only and so a 4×2 pickup becomes better economic sense to many urban motoring consumers. Responding to this, the product planning team at Tan Chong has released a 2 wheel drive version of the very popular Navara at an attractive selling price,” said Chief Editor of Asian Auto, Daniel Fernandez.

The Navara Calibre 4×2 is a compelling combination of strong performance, bold styling and outstanding features, with a powerful yet fuel-efficient 4×2 drivetrain able to take on all obstacles whether in town or in the outskirts.

The Navara is highly rated for its toughness, off-road capabilities and comfort across the world. Since its November 2008 launch in Malaysia, the Navara has garnered the following prestigious awards:
