Which NV200 does Edmunds recommend?

The base NV200 S should meet most cargo needs. But the upgraded SV adds a significant number of features for only a marginal increase in cost, so that's the one we'd choose. The SV looks a little nicer with body-colored bumpers and mirrors, and it offers an additional power outlet in the rear, six cargo tie-downs and cruise control as standard equipment. The SV also has several available options that you can't get on the S, such as a 5.8-inch touchscreen, navigation and satellite radio.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

The 2019 Nissan NV200 is a small cargo van that specializes in providing basic transportation and a short list of standard features. From a price perspective, the NV200 is one of the most affordable vans on the road, which no doubt is a positive for those looking to save a bit of cash.

Basically, vans like the NV200 are meant for city use. They provide easy maneuverability and respectable fuel economy in the same package. However, rivals, such as the Ram ProMaster City, the Ford Transit Connect and the Mercedes-Benz Metris, all beat the Nissan for refinement, available features and cargo space, even if only by a small margin. The NV200 is the most fuel-efficient of the bunch, providing an EPA estimated 25 mpg city/highway combined. But those competing vans offer more power, which will be useful if you're hauling a full load of gear or cargo.

If you just need an inexpensive small city van, the NV200 will certainly get the job done. But depending on your needs, one of the other vans might be more useful overall.

2019 Nissan NV200 models

The 2019 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, 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.

On top of the standard equipment, 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 nav, 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.


Overallundefined / 5


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.


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.


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


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.


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.


The NV200, and the base S version in particular, doesn't offer much in the way of creature comforts. Lack of significant adjustments may make it hard to find an ideal driving position.

Seat comfort

A lack of steering wheel adjustment will make it harder for some people 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 has average ride quality, and that's with the small 15-inch tires. The ride will also worsen if you load the van to its max payload.


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. People who are 6 feet or taller 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 of 180 degrees.


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 standard.


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 amplification of even the smallest of noises when the van is empty.


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.


The SV trim offers an optional navigation package that includes a bigger touchscreen display and satellite radio.

5 out of 5 stars, LOVE MY VAN
Doug Crawford,
SV 4dr Minivan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)

Great van outstanding MPG average 26.5 mpg, I use it for daily driver and camping trips, LOVE My Van!

5 out of 5 stars, Love my van
SV 4dr Minivan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)

Yep, it’s just a little, four-cylinder engine, but’s it’s just a little van. It’s fun to drive, my 6’2” body fits fine, it’s easy to get in and out of, easy to load and goes a long way between fill-ups. Perfect for my small business needs as a working musician and sound company owner. I can get all the gear, I need for any of the bands I work with, in the van and still have room for a passenger. Working shows in crowded tourist areas is a breeze because it’s very easy to park, even though it doesn’t have side windows. The backup camera works great when parallel parking. The nav and entertainment system is easy to use and the factory speakers sound just fine. Bluetooth connectivity is easy and hands-free calling sounds very good on both ends. This was a great buy for me.

4 out of 5 stars, Traded from 2013
SV 4dr Minivan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)

Replaced 2013 with 2019 and found it essentially unchanged. Totally satisfied but opted not to include power mirrors, remote locks and GPS. Miss the convenience of remote access but never needed GPS and after first setting mirrors, didn't need power adjust nor heaters. Still meets ALL my cargo needs UPDATE 2020 - Added 3rd party remote and purchased household indoor outdoor thermometer, ziptied sender in gas filler door and double faces taped the thermometer to dash. Display is reflective and difficult to see. Added digital stopwatch on stand in unused pocket at edge of dash. Also added LEDs to cargo area. Still very satisfied with van

1 out of 5 stars, There are much better alternatives
SV 4dr Minivan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)

I have had the pleasure of driving many service vans, with exception to the Mercedes vans. If you are looking for a small city van, you can do much better with Ford Transit Connect or even the Ram ProMaster City. If you are still stuck on the Nissan NV200, get the SV outfitted with navigation and the passenger side door window. This van is extremely outclassed in all areas by the Ford and Ram vans. The best things about this van is the Bluetooth connectivity and radio. HVAC is lackluster unless it is 50 to 60 degrees F, then it is just OK. Instrumentation is terrible. There is an accurate speedometer, a useless tachometer, and a tiny digital fuel gauge. The tachometer is useless in this van, as there are only two distinct RPMs this 6500 RPM redline engine turns, 5000 and 2000. 5000 RPM for acceleration and 2000 RPM for trying to maintain speed. The CVT transmission wails like siren, literally; unsynchronized transmissions are more quiet. Acceleration is best summed up by comparing this to a race with a snail; bet on the snail for the win. Outward visibility is great, as long as you just look out of the windshield, it is recommended to splurge and get the passenger side door window. The seats are just slightly better than concrete benches, although there are plenty of adjustments, a comfortable position cannot be found. Steering feel is rubbery, and there is extreme torque steer upon acceleration. The best thing about the NV200 is its size, which is really nice in tight urban areas. I cannot recommend this vehicle especially with Ford and Ram offering better vans for not much more.

Nissan NV200 vs. the competition

Nissan NV200 vs. Ram ProMaster City

Aside from the Mercedes Metris, the Ram ProMaster City leads the compact cargo-van class for payload capacity at over 1,800 pounds. That bests the NV200 by over 300 pounds, meaning that's a lot of tools you no longer have to leave behind. The Ram also beats the Nissan when it comes to highway-rated fuel economy (26 mpg compared to 28 mpg) and cargo capacity (122 cubes compared to 131 cubes). The ProMaster City is slightly more expensive but not by much. The Ram's advantages may be small, but it wins out over the NV200 in several important ways.

Compare Nissan NV200 & Ram ProMaster City features

Nissan NV200 vs. Ford Transit Connect

If you're looking for user-friendly tech in your cargo van, the Ford Transit Connect should be at the top of your list. Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system is one of our favorites (especially in the small-cargo-van segment) with fast responses and easily executed voice controls. The Ford does give up a few mpg to the Nissan however, with the Transit Connect checking in at 23 mpg combined compared to the NV200's 25 mpg combined.

Compare Nissan NV200 & Ford Transit Connect features

Nissan NV200 vs. Mercedes-Benz Metris

Given a choice between the NV200 and the Mercedes-Benz Metris, we'd definitely go with the Metris. It has a nicer interior and better standard and optional equipment. And driving dynamics — ride quality, highway noise, available power — are much better. However, as you'd probably expect from a Mercedes, the Metris is significantly more expensive, especially on the upper trim levels. If you're looking for a bargain, you might have a hard time finding one with the Benz.

More about the 2019 Nissan NV200

If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere. At least that's what Frank Sinatra said, and if the 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 $22,000 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 carry? 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, a rearview camera, 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 2019 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 2019 Nissan NV200 Minivan?

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.
