Nissan NV200 Cargo Van - Compact but Powerful Business SidekickMaybe, Nissan NV200 compact cargo vans aren’t so glamorous, but they sure are useful. Built for small business that doesn’t need a massive fleet, the Nissan NV200 offers affordable transportation that’s easy to maneuver and economical to function. Even though not as refined or big as the Ram ProMaster City or Ford Transit Connect, the Nissan can still haul 122 cu. ft. of a load. The versatile cargo space can also be customized by upfitters to serve the needs of its owner better. Its small size makes it no sweat to park and drive in city traffic, and when the work is finally done, NV200 can be easily stored in a residential garage. Unlike some competitors where there’s an almost confusing assortment of trims, wheelbases, engines, roofs, boxes, and other configurations all models of Nissan NV200 have the same body, wheelbase, and engine. Additionally, the Nissan compact cargo van drives and looks like a car, making it a smooth transition for newbies with cargo vehicles.
Nissan NV200: PerformanceUnder the Hood The Nissan NV200 is available in 2 trims: S and SV. Both come with a 2.0-liter 4-cyl. engine, 131 horsepower, and 139 lbf-ft of torque, front-wheel drive, and an XTRONIC CVT (continuously variable automatic transmission). Its fantastic 36.7 inches turning diameter aids you cruise tight streets and narrow lot places while allowing you to place the van as close as possible to your job location. Plus, with the lowest starting MSRP in compact cargo van class, you’ll save a lot on the fuel economy.
Maneuvering Maybe, besides the price, the Nissan NV200’s most attractive feature is how easy it’s to “ride.” The small size, car-like suspension, and tight 36.7-ft. turning radius allows the NV200 access to spaces that larger pickups and vans wouldn’t dare to try. Single-lane U-turns are a piece of cake for this compact van, and parallel parking is undemanding due to the rearview monitor. Its big windshield provides excellent visibility and large side mirrors somewhat compensate for the big blind spots produces by the solid side panels. Comfort The Nissan NV200, and the standard S model especially, doesn’t offer much in the term of comfort. Its tilt-only steering wheel may make it hard for you to find an adequate driving position. As trucks and work vans go, the NV200’s drive quality is average, and the drive will also be affected if you load the van to its max payload. A lack of steering wheel adjustment will negatively impact the ability to find a comfy driving position. There’s a center armrest for the driver only and poor designed sloping door panel for the armrest. Cargo Area
From a rear suspension specifically designed to minimize the intrusion into the cargo space, to rear doors that swing dual sliding and wide doors, this vehicle makes it easy to manipulate every inch of 122.7” cargo space.
You can employ every inch of available space, including the 54.8 inches of width, due to the squared-off inner wheel arches. Their space-effective blueprint lets stackable and organized loading that is also more secure throughout transport.
The cargo floor 48 inches wide and 82.8 inches deep between the wheel arches. The rear openings include squared-off corners to be more accessible for a forklift.
Its incredibly low cargo floor with a liftover 21.2” height is an excellent back-saver, while loading heavier objects is quick and easy.
Easy for Accommodation
Featuring 127.7 cu. ft. of the cargo area, side doors with dual slide functions and rear swinging doors for instant access, van accommodations are unchallenging to make for shelving, storage units, and other compartments.
Also, partitions, fixed cargo bins, and cargo rack units, along with an integrated roof rack for fastening materials above, keep you flexible when it comes to inside layout.
Office on Wheels
When it is time to get down to business, the NV200 cargo van switches easily into rolling office. The fold-down passenger seat makes a work desk, while power outlets and smart storage are “right there” within research.
