Nissan NV200 Review

Written By: admin on September 11, 2011 10 Comments

The Nissan NV200 is a versatile van that can tackle long journeys with ease but also excels when it comes to city driving. It is refined and comfortable while the light steering and a tight turning circle make it perfect for tackling more built up areas and getting out of a tight squeeze. Space available in the load area is impressive for a small van and gives it an edge over similar vehicles such as the Ford Transit Connect, Peugeot Partner and Citroen Berlingo. However, the single body style and one engine does mean there is little choice for buyers. But for small businesses, the NV200 is a useful choice.

Behind the Wheel

The inside of the NV200 has a feel of quality with many parts of the cabin shared across other Nissan car models – especially the stereo system – meaning it’s refined and modern. A high and upright seating position makes visibility very good while the seats offer plenty of support making it comfortable for long journeys. There is plenty of storage space too. Both the driver and passenger get a cupholder on the dash as well as in the central console, while there is a good-sized dashtop cubby – ideal for keeping paperwork handy – plus extra hidden stowage between the two seats. The glove-box is also a good size but has no lid meaning anything inside is left on display, the door pockets are also very narrow. However, there is a drawer under the driver’s seat to keep more important things hidden away.

On the Road

Just one engine is available in the NV200, the commonly-used 1.5 dCi diesel with 86bhp. The engine performs well with a good amount of low down power and a smooth nature, plus it is economical and refined. Light steering and a precise five-speed gearbox make the NV200 ideal for driving in built up areas and narrow streets, while it also performs well on windy roads with neat and controlled cornering. It’s extremely quiet on the road with very little wind and engine noise, even at higher speeds.
