Nissan NV200 Cargo Van - Compact but Powerful Business Sidekick
Maybe, 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: Performance
Under the HoodThe 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.
ManeuveringMaybe, 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
