Which NV200 does Edmunds recommend?
Picking a 2017 Nissan NV200 largely comes down to getting a version that matches your needs. As a basic work van, the NV200 S will work out fine as it comes with a decent set of features, including air-conditioning and power windows and locks. To get more a more comfortable and convenient van for the driver, you'll want to pick the SV. It's the only way to get the optional touchscreen infotainment display that includes a USB-digital media interface.
Edmunds' Expert Review
The NV200 is surprisingly un-trucklike on the road. It feels downright agile compared to traditional vans, and its small size makes it easy to slip into tight places. But the four-cylinder's performance is anemic, especially if you've got a lot of heavy cargo aboard.
The NV200, and the base S version in particular, doesn't offer much in the way of creature comforts. Settle into the driver seat, and the tilt-only steering wheel may make it hard for you to find an ideal driving position.
The interior is stark. There isn't a lot of "stuff" inside the cabin. But controls are simple yet effective, and access to the front seats is easy. The cargo area is equally accessible with a low load floor.
The NV200's cargo hold offers 122.7 cubic feet of space, with a maximum payload of 1,480 pounds. Though that's not bad, to put those numbers into perspective, the Ram ProMaster City checks in at 131.7 cubic feet and 1,883 pounds of payload. The SV model makes securing cargo easy with its half-dozen standard tie-down points.

S 4dr Minivan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
Not real fast, but accelerates fine. Great cargo room...but the seats are hard and extremely uncomfortable during extended driving . Poor build quality. Very tin-can like and the body creaks during turns. HORRIBLE suspension...train tracks will launch you out of your seat.
SV 4dr Minivan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
DO your research if you are going to buy from dealers. Drive each van. We were surprised at how different the Nissan is from the Ford and the Ram even though all three are mini cargo vans. Watch Youtube to find out just how to negotiate. It's amazing how much we learned in a short period of time.
S 4dr Minivan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
Very basic van which is expected. Very loud road noise. Nothing out there compares to a chevy and astro. Drives through anything. Dont think this would drive through a pothole. I had high Hope's. Gonna look into a truck instead. Gas mileage ain't that much better. Definitely not worth going in debt for.
