Despite its compact dimensions, the Nissan NV200 has a generous load volume and payload. This light urban van comes with a choice of 1.5-litre diesel engines, sourced from Nissan’s Alliance partner Renault. Both promise low fuel consumption.
There’s also a choice of three specifications – Visia, Acenta and Tekna – but whichever you go for, and whether you buy the panel van or the NV200 Combi with five or seven seats, the Nissan is nimble and manoeuvrable for its class.
Users can specify a folding passenger seat – as in many LCVs – as well as a folding mesh bulkhead, allowing longer loads to be safely carried alongside the driver’s seat. Nissan also sells the NV200 Fridge Van, with an insulated cargo cell and a 2.2 cubic metre load volume, for food couriers, while the regular NV200 is a popular choice for drivers looking to carry out a camper van conversion. Plus, the van forms the basis of a new taxi for the streets of New York, and is bidding to rival the LTI black cab as a new taxi for London.
