Nissan NV200 Review

Buying a Nissan NV200 van

Comfortable, practical and a joy to drive, the Nissan NV200 is the perfect on-road companion for businesses both small and large – with value and quality guaranteed. This remarkable vehicle has the sophistication and energy you would expect from such a renowned marque offering style and charisma as well as power and on-road satisfaction. The Nissan NV200 reliability is also spot-on ensuring daily tasks get completed promptly and efficiently.

Plus, with model variants to suit all kinds of business needs, there’s sure to be a Nissan NV200 variant to suit your personal and professional requirements.


The Nissan NV200 with its strong lines and determined personality is a powerhouse out on the road. As a two-passenger compact cargo van ideal for commercial use, it’s been perfectly designed to assist with a wide variety of tasks. Firstly, dual seating means solo travel is only an option – if you need an assistant, there’s enough seating capacity. Secondly, the Nissan NV200 is wonderfully compact making it easy to drive through bustling city centres and to park in tight spaces – which can be difficult in a larger vehicle.

Despite its compact exterior, the NV200 has a more spacious interior than its dimensions perhaps suggest – with even tall drivers having enough headroom to adopt a comfortable driving position. Feeling good out on the road is an absolute must and with the Nissan NV200’s chic styling, both passenger and driver can sit back, relax and get on with the job at hand.

With many versions of the NV200 available, this vehicle offers businesses and drivers multiple choices that allow for optimum flexibility.


One of the main jobs of the Nissan NV200 is to carry cargo and therefore this van is expected to be highly practical – which, indeed, it is. With regards to Nissan NV200 specs, standard models offer 4.2 cubic metres of loadspace in the rear and a 739kg payload. To bring these dimensions to life a little, there is essentially enough room for two Euro-pallets as well as bulky loads of up to 1.36 metres in height. Indeed, the NV200 has a surprisingly tall roof considering its overall size which makes it highly convenient for all kinds of professions requiring optimum cargo space.

The Nissan NV200 is also highly practical thanks to its double sliding doors which come as standard. This means if you need to get a job done quickly or have to nip back and forth to the van to acquire more tools – you can do so with ease. All vans feature six load lashing points on the floor to ensure the transportation of cargo is as safe and hassle-free as possible.

When it comes to practicality, different models offer different configurations. Opt for the 5-seat Crew Cab, for instance, and you’ll find a bulkhead behind the second row of seats. Opt for the 5 or 7-seat Combi and you’ll be able to fold the rear row of seats forward to create more storage space. Indeed, an extra 2.3 cubic metres of volume is created in the 5-seater and an extra 2.1 cubic metres of volume is created in the 7-seater.


Sleek and road savvy, the Nissan NV200 is perfectly designed to navigate narrow roads, busy cities, tight roundabouts and parking spaces which are perhaps not suitable for larger vehicles. This makes the Nissan a favourite with professionals who need a reliable ride wherever they go.

The Nissan NV200 is narrow with relatively small wheels for its size making it easy to handle in all different environments – without compromising comfort. While there is no automatic option available, the 90bhp engine comes with a five-speed manual gearbox, while the 110bhp engine comes equipped with a six-speed gearbox which allows for slightly more relaxed cruising. The engines are capable of meeting Euro 6 emissions standards.

The Nissan is perfectly tailored for urban driving and can set the pace of traffic around town. It’s non-jerky and highly reliable backed by Nissan’s five-year/100,000-mile manufacturer warranty.


Stop-start isn’t yet available in the NV200, but this modern ride is not short of technological features that make it stand out from the crowd. Cruise control and speed limiter are available on select models and every NV200 has a gear shift indicator on the dashboard to help drivers to maintain an eco-friendly performance out on the road, and reduce their overall fuel consumption.

All models come with an immobiliser, remote central locking and super-locking. If you’re wondering about entertainment, all vans come with an MP3-compatible stereo with steering wheel controls as well as USB/aux inputs. The Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity (which comes as standard) is sure to appeal to anyone who needs to take calls and run a business while on the go. Tekna models feature a Nissan Connect touch screen sat-nav and entertainment system as standard, while it’s an optional extra on Acenta models.


Safety is of paramount importance and Nissan has been sure to incorporate many features which a safe a drive as can be. The NV200 features Vehicle Dynamic Control with Tekna models featuring a passenger airbag as part of the overall design spec. All vans also come with Brake Assist.


The Nissan NV200 is a great all-rounder ideal for businesses big and small. As well as being a top performer on the road, coming into its own in the urban territory, it’s also comfortable to drive and offers impressive storage for its compact dimensions.
