Ten Second Review
Having piggybacked on Renault's commercial vehicle range for a few years, Nissan designed and built one of its own and the NV200 compact van shows real promise. The tall shape squeezes maximum capacity out of a small footprint and the 1.5-litre diesel engine delivers strong economy.
The NV200 was created to replace the Nissan Kubistar, a strong compact van product which basically amounted to a first generation Renault Kangoo with its badges swapped. Renault's second generation Kangoo never got the same dual identity treatment. By the time that model hit the streets, Nissan was well along the road to a little load-lugger of its own. Having been presented with a blank canvas to create a van in its own image, Nissan departed emphatically from the Kubistar and produced a vehicle that's about as unorthodox as modern compact vans get. The NV200 looks like a miniaturised version of a full size panel van rather than a traditional compact van and boasts the desirable combination of a small footprint and a large payload. Can it deliver the goods?
Sharing a platform with the Nissan Micra passenger car that debuted in 2003, the NV200 isn't a big van but there will still be those who have their doubts about its reliance on a 1.5-litre engine. The 1.5 dCi diesel is on the small side but with 86bhp and 200Nm of torque from 2,000rpm it's a muscular little unit that compares well against the entry-level diesel engines offered in rival products. It does start to look a little outgunned against models that can match the NV200's prodigious carrying capacity but the Nissan should still have enough verve around town and a 98mph maximum suggests decent open road performance. The tall panel van shape of the NV200 gives rise to an upright seating position that will help drivers who are forever clambering in and out of their vehicle during the working day. The dash-mounted gear lever that controls the five-speed gearbox is ideally located and the steering column adjusts for rake, but not for reach. With the front wheels pushed right to the front of the vehicle, the NV200 gains a very tight 10.6m kerb to kerb turning circle which is better than the majority of the compact van class and even outmanoeuvres some superminis. With good visibility, it promises to be an ideal partner for urban driving.
Design and Build
There are more visually arresting small vans on the market than the NV200 but once that scaled down panel van design was settled upon, it was always destined to be a vehicle of the plain and practical persuasion. What operators gain in a package that's only 1,695mm wide and 4,400mm from noise to stubby tail, is a very big load bay. Most of the leading compact vans come in two different wheelbases but the NV200 combines a single short wheelbase with a 750kg payload and a 4.2m3 load volume - that's on a par with its long wheelbase rivals. The shape of the vehicle means the loadbay is relatively tall but there's enough floor area for two Euro pallets and a low loading lip of 542mm will help when lifting items inside. The NV200 comes with a pair of sliding side doors as standard along with the usual side-hinged doors at the rear. Also as standard, the driver is protected by a ladder frame behind the seat but higher spec models get a solid steel bulkhead that will also do wonders for refinement. There are six tie-down points in the load bay floor and further versatility is available through the aptly named but optional Versatility Pack. This increases the maximum load length from 2,040mm to 2,800mm by means of a folding passenger seat and an opening mesh bulkhead.
Market and Model
There's a choice of E and SE trim levels for NV200 buyers to get their heads around. Even the E model has a decent range of features including remote central locking and a good trip computer. The manual wind-down windows are less appealing and many operators will want to upgrade the safety spec from the single driver's airbag on the E model. With the SE, there's electric windows and Nissan's keyless entry-system which will be great for multi-drop drivers. If you want more comprehensive safety kit, however, you'll need the optional Safety Pack with its ESP stability control, passenger airbag and twin side airbags.
