Which NV200 does Edmunds recommend?

Choosing the right 2018 Nissan NV200 comes down to knowing your needs. The NV200 S will work fine as a basic work van since it comes with a decent set of features, including air conditioning and power windows and locks.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

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.

Driving

The NV200 is easy to drive. It feels downright agile compared to traditional vans, and its small size makes it easy to slip into tight places. But the four-cylinder engine's performance is anemic, especially with heavy cargo aboard.

Acceleration

The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine makes 131 horsepower and is paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission. Unladen, this combo is enough to maintain good momentum in typical driving, but it could use more power for large loads. In our testing, it covered 0-60 mph in 10 seconds.

Braking

The NV200's braking is perfectly fine for everyday driving applications. The pedal is reasonably firm and predictable. But in our simulated panic-braking test, it stopped from 60 mph in 137 feet, which is long, considering how light this van is.

Handling

The NV200 leans considerably when you're going around turns, a characteristic amplified by the van's high center of gravity. But in most situations, you won't notice how soft it is.

Drivability

The high profile and boxy shape of this cargo van make it susceptible to crosswinds. Initial turn-in is quick, which is helpful when making low-speed parking lot maneuvers.

Comfort

The NV200, and the base S version in particular, doesn't offer much in the way of creature comforts. Settle into the driver's seat, and the tilt-only steering wheel may make it hard for you to find an ideal driving position.

Seat comfort

A lack of steering wheel adjustment will negatively impact the ability of some to find a comfortable driving position. The sloping door panel design makes for a poor armrest. There is a center armrest for the driver only.

Ride comfort

As work vans and trucks go, the NV200's ride quality is average, and that's with the small 15-inch tires. The ride will also be affected if you load the van to its max payload.

Interior

The interior is stark and the cabin is sparse. But the controls are simple and effective, and access to the front seats is easy. The cargo area is equally accessible with a low load floor.

Ease of use

The instrument panel gauges are pretty basic, and the controls are a collection of dials, easy-to-use knobs and clearly marked buttons. The fuel-filler neck is very low. Six-footers will need to bend down awkwardly to fuel the van.

Getting in/getting out

Access to the front seats is easy. The sliding cargo doors on either side open fully for access to the load area. The rear cargo doors open up to a maximum 180 degrees.

Visibility

The large sideview mirrors with blind-spot mirror inserts are useful. Visibility is obviously limited if the van doesn't come with the optional door or panel windows. A rearview camera is optional.

Quality

In our test van, we observed some squeaks and rattles from the cargo area. We consider this borderline acceptable given the nature of the vehicle and the fact that even the smallest of noises is amplified when the van is empty.

Utility

The NV200's cargo hold offers 122.7 cubic feet of space, with a maximum payload of 1,480 pounds — not bad. But by comparison, the Ram ProMaster City checks in at 131.7 cubic feet and 1,886 pounds of payload. The SV model makes securing cargo easy with a half-dozen standard tie-down points.

Technology

A rearview camera becomes a standard feature for 2018. Optional on the SV trim is a navigation package that includes a bigger touchscreen display and satellite radio.

Nissan NV 200 timing chain
G. Martin,12/05/2018
If you are looking for a commercial van, don't buy a Nissan. My timing chain broke at only 147000 miles. The dealer did all oil changes and required maintenance. The chain should last the life of the engine, which according to everyone I talked to at Nissan is only as long as the warranty. Nissan does not stand by their vehicles and I will never by another one.

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.
