2015 Nissan NV200 Overview
- Compact work van with a flexible cargo area
- Four-cylinder engine
- Good fuel economy for its class (24/25 mpg city/highway)
The 2015 Nissan NV200 is the work van for those who want the utility and cargo capacity of a van, but don’t need a full-size solution.
The NV200, along with the Ford Transit Connect, is part of a new generation of work vans that realize that bigger is not always better, especially for small businesses or shops located in urban environments that aren’t conducive to larger vehicles. For 2015, the NV200 only gets very minor changes. Rear Sonar sensors, a glass sliding door, and an updated NissanConnect multimedia system are new options. There have also been some updates to the CVT for improved performance.
With a tight 36.7 foot turning circle, the NV200 is very maneuverable even in close quarters. Payload capacity is 1,500 pounds and sliding doors on both sides make it easy to climb in and out of the cargo area. The rear doors are split 60/40 and can open a full 180-degrees to fully expose the loading area for pallets and cargo of that nature.
There is only one powertrain configuration, a 131-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is mated to Nissan’s Xtronic CVT. Fuel economy figures easily best larger work vans at an estimated 24/25 mpg city/highway.
Inside, there is 123 cubic feet of cargo area behind the front seats. Cloth seating, power windows, and a large center console that can fit a laptop among other items are standard. Power locks, cruise control, a navigation system, and Bluetooth connectivity are optional.
All federally regulated safety features are standard, including six airbags, an electronic stability system, and antilock brakes. A backup camera is optional, along with the aforementioned rear sonar sensors for easier reversing.
