Introduction

What Car? says...

The Nissan NV200 is something of an anomaly in the small van sector. Its compact footprint makes it instantly comparable to the likes of the Volkswagen Caddy, Ford Transit Connect or Citroen Berlingo, yet it’s slightly higher body and much narrower width really set it apart from all rivals.

Load volumes are the most obvious benefit of the NV200’s unusual proportions, with the taller van able to carry as much as 4.2m3.

Three different levels of trim are available on the NV200, with Visia, Acenta and Tekna options each adding improvements on top of the other.

While the obvious competition is the wealth of city vans available including the Transit Connect and Berlingo, extended wheelbase versions offer a closer match for carrying capacity.

The Volkswagen Caddy Maxi and Renault Kangoo Maxi offer similar load volumes but in a longer footprint, while the short-wheelbase versions of mid-sized vans that offer as little as 1.5m3 additional space could even be considered as rivals – although the purchase price and running costs of vans including the Vauxhall Vivaro or Mercedes-Benz Vito are considerably higher.
