With the driveability and loadspace of the new Nissan NV200, it is sure to be a winner with Business Vans owners. Business Vans has a new review, details below.

Nissan's eye-catching styling houses a van that's a joy to drive with plenty of room for cargo

NISSAN'S neat and tidy NV200 light van broke away from the constraints of re-badged Renaults with eye-catching styling that houses a four-cylinder 1.5-litre turbo-diesel power unit, well-appointed two-seat cab, and surprisingly large cargo capacity for a short-wheelbase vehicle.

Our test model, the n-tec, is equipped with a 110hp four-cylinder common-rail engine, which develops 240Nm of torque driving through a six-speed manual gearbox. The dash-mounted change is slick in operation and the overall driving position is good.

The torquey engine gives the NV200 plenty of zip making the NV200 a joy to drive. The ride could perhaps be better but in general it’s comfortable to travel in, the supportive seats adding to the ease

The n-tec grade is well appointed and includes Nissan Connect satellite navigation, cruise control, driver-adjustable speed limiter, front electric windows, electric mirrors, CD/FM audio with two speakers, MP3 aux jack, Bluetooth and trip computer.

On the practical side, there are 13 cabin storage areas, a fold-flat passenger seat back, and under-seat storage. Safety features include rear-view camera, ABS and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, driver airbag, immobiliser, remote central locking, superlocking and shielded door locks.

In the cargo area there’s a 4.3cu m of loadspace, which is generous considering the wheelbase, plus a full steel bulkhead and cargo floor covering. Access is easy via twin rear loading doors, and twin sliding side doors.

What’s hot?

  • Torquey, responsive engine
  • Comfortable, well-appointed cab
  • Good in-cab stowage
  • Generous cargo capacity

What’s not?

  • Ride could be better

Business Vans verdict

The NV200 is comfortable and easy to manoeuvre, and its drivability makes it suitable for both around-town operations and long trips. The generous loadspace for a vehicle of this size is a bonus.
