If you're running 4.4 and an app allows immersive mode, then the nav bar will hide. Otherwise, no, you have to be rooted then install something like gravity box and enable expandable desktop.

Being rooted has so many benefits though. There's a xposed module called rootcloak which hides root from certain apps, allowing them to work.
