Which NV200 does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Nissan's NV200 small cargo van can squeeze through congested traffic and slip into those small curbside parking spots that leave larger vans circling the block. This Nissan (and its Chevrolet City Express twin) is also significantly more fuel-efficient than those full-size cargo vans; the EPA says it can return 25 mpg in combined city and highway driving.
For light-duty commercial business use, the NV200 should be sufficient. The small van's cargo hold will fit a full-size standard pallet between the rear wheelwells and swallow almost 1,500 pounds of whatever payload you need to haul. It's also one of the most affordable cargo vans on the market.
The NV200 has some downsides, though. Its performance is underwhelming — some competing vans offer gutsier engines — and its interior is utilitarian to a fault. Most other small cargo vans offer more interior room, too. Still, if you need an inexpensive cargo van, the NV200 is worth checking out.
2018 Nissan NV200 configurations
The 2018 Nissan NV200 is a two-passenger compact cargo van designed for commercial use. It's offered in S and SV trims. The sparsely equipped S is priced accordingly, while the SV is more upscale and can be fitted with more optional features. Both come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (131 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque), a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive.
Standard features on the S model include 15-inch steel wheels, sliding side doors, 40/60-split swing-out rear cargo doors, wide-angle spotter mirrors, air conditioning, cloth and vinyl upholstery, a height-adjustable driver's seat, a fold-flat passenger seat, a tilt-only steering wheel, power windows and door locks, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a two-speaker audio system, a USB input, and a 5-inch color display for controlling audio and phone functions. Cruise control and rear parking sensors are optional.
The SV offers heated power mirrors, keyless entry, cruise control, an additional rear 12-volt power outlet, and six cargo area tie-down hooks. The SV also presents more options, including a Navigation package that adds navigation, a 5.8-inch touchscreen display, voice controls, smartphone app integration and satellite radio.
Optional on both the S and SV are right-hand side and rear door windows with privacy glass and wire mesh guards, rear parking sensors, a rear defroster and an interior rearview mirror.

2018 Nissan NV200 for Sale
If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere. At least that's what Frank Sinatra said, and if the 2018 Nissan NV200 is good enough to be the Big Apple's Taxi of Tomorrow (aka every cab in the city), then maybe its cargo van variant is worth considering for your business.
Small cargo vans are a relatively new introduction to the United States, but the NV200 and others make a lot of sense for those who don't need all the capability provided by bigger commercial vans. Importantly, they also don't have their heftier price tags and fuel bills. Indeed, for making deliveries and hauling more modest cargo around town, the NV200 could be a better fit given its base price of around $21,000 and fuel economy of 25 mpg combined (24 city/26 highway).
On the other hand, its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine's 131 horsepower is meager, and acceleration is consequently taxed. Some competitors are slightly better in this regard. Sure, no one is expecting you to drag race a commercial van, but the level of power can make a difference when you've loaded it up with gear or cargo.
And how much can you load it up with? With a maximum cargo capacity of 122.7 cubic feet, the NV200 theoretically falls 20 cubic feet short of a typical minivan's capacity. But it doesn't have seats to remove, it's long enough to fit a 6-foot ladder, and it's wide enough to hold a standard 48-inch pallet between its rear wheels. The cargo area is also 4.5 feet tall, so you don't have to crouch too much when milling about inside. (That's about what you can expect from regular-roof versions of those bigger commercial vans.) Its maximum payload is 1,480 pounds. All of these figures represent strong capability given its size, but know that its competitors are slightly better.
At least you'll get a decent amount of standard equipment. Even the base S includes two sliding doors, wide-angle spotter mirrors, air conditioning, a fold-flat passenger seat, a height-adjustable driver's seat, power windows and locks, and a two-speaker sound system. That equipment isn't always available on commercial vans of any size. Opting for the SV adds keyless entry, cruise control and six cargo area tie-down points, while its Navigation package provides the driver with a larger touchscreen, navigation, smartphone app integration and satellite radio. Rear parking sensors and rear windows can be specified.
So, with the 2018 Nissan NV200, you are getting a sensible little work van for those jobs that don't call for heavy-duty hauling or a New York apartment's worth of interior space. It may be outdone in some areas by rivals, but if you can find one listed here on Edmunds' inventory pages for an ideal price, we think that ultimately it will serve your business well.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Nissan NV200?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
