2021 Nissan NV200 Prices, Reviews, and Pictures

Overview

The 2021 NV200 shares its first two letters with Nissan’s full-size van for work, but it is a cargo hauler that can be towed with small fry cargo and has city-friendly dimensions. Many of these vans can be seen on New York’s streets as taxis, though they might be more difficult to spot in the future. Tradesmen looking for a low-cost option are attracted to the NV200 by its affordable entry price. It also boasts a four-cylinder engine that provides good mileage. The Nissan has the lowest cargo and payload capacities of its competitors, but it makes up for it in comfort and ease of maneuvering.

What’s new for 2021?

The NV200 has remained the same for 2021. The base S model now has cruise control, while the SV is equipped with rear backup sensors. Buyers have the option to choose Gun Metallic among the available colors.

Pricing and Which One To Buy

The cheapest vehicle in the compact-cargo van class is the Nissan NV200. We recommend the SV trim level over the other two. It provides plenty of things to justify the jump in price, including power-adjustable heated sideview mirrors, remote keyless entry, cruise control with steering-wheel-mounted controls, an additional 12-volt power port in the rear of the center console, body-colored trim, full wheel covers, and a chrome grille.

Transmission, Engine, and Performance

The NV200 is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The engine produces 131 horsepower and 139 pounds-feet, which is a lot for this class. There are more powerful engines available in the Mercedes-Benz Metris and Ram ProMaster City as well as the Ford Transit Connect. The NV200 is the only compact cargo van to have a continuously variable auto transmission (CVT). This allows for smoothness and fuel efficiency over acceleration and response.

Towing and Payload Capacity

The NV200’s small size and 131 horsepower is no surprise. It can carry a maximum payload of 1480 pounds. Each of its competitors can carry more weight. The Metris, which can haul nearly 1000 pounds more than the Nissan, has the highest towing rating of any vehicle in its class at 5000 pounds.

Fuel Economy and Real World MPG

The EPA estimates that the NV200 will achieve 24 mpg city-wide and 26 mpg highway. This is about average for the class. On the highway, the more powerful ProMaster City and Transit Connect have a higher fuel efficiency than the Nissan. Visit the EPA website for more information on the NV200’s fuel economy.

Interior, Comfort, & Cargo

The NV200 cargo van is the smallest in its class, measuring 185.6 inches from nose-to-tail and with a wheelbase length of 115.2 inches. Only the Transit Connect’s short-wheelbase version is smaller. The Nissan’s cargo volume of 123 cubic yards is still about average for its class. Nissan claims that the van can hold standard-size pallets (40×48 inches) despite its small dimensions. This is due to its wide-opening doors. The rear doors have a 40/60 split. The shorter door is on the street side, to reduce traffic disruption. Dual opening positions are available at both the rear doors, with one being open 90 degrees and the other 180 degrees. Comfort is average for the simple interior, which is cloth-covered. The versatility of the front passenger seat folds down to be used as a worktop, or extension surface for long cargo.

Connectivity and Infotainment

The NV200 doesn’t come with in-cabin tech from Nissan. Even for this class, the van’s connectivity and infotainment features are very minimal. Nissan claims that the van’s 7.0-inch color touchscreen screen is the best in its class. Bluetooth, SiriusXM satellite radio (subscriptions sold separately), Apple CarPlay integration and Android Auto integration are all standard. Its dashboard features a single USB port.
