2015 Nissan NV200 Overview

Trying to cash in on America’s newfound fondness for urban-oriented small cargo vans, Nissan originally introduced its NV200 for the 2013 model year. For 2015, this 2-seat compact cargo-carrying minivan successfully continues this venture in providing small business owners with an agile, inexpensive, and fuel-miserly alternative to the Ford Transits, Ram Cargo Vans and Mercedes-Benz Sprinters of the world.

Again available in 2 trims, the basic S and marginally up-featured SV, this pint-size van has been the recipient of a few subtle upgrades for the upcoming model year. For instance, a pair of new exterior colors, Cayenne Red and Graphite Blue, are now available, while rear parking sensors and a glass package for the side-mounted, sliding cargo doors also make their debut.

Of course, those standard sliding doors complement the also-standard rear barn doors that ease loading and unloading challenges. Cargo area to the seatbacks is an impressive 122.7 cubic feet, and payload capacity returns at 1,480 pounds.

Power-wise, don’t expect to beat anybody off the line at a green light. The just-peppy-enough 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine pairs with a standard continuously variable transmission to produce 131 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque. All of this is to the tune of 24 mpg city/26 highway, with Nissan claiming that highway mileage bumped up by a single extra mpg over last year’s 24/25.

Facing facts, the 2015 NV200 is a work vehicle, thus bells and whistles are few and far between. The base S trim, for instance, gets only the essentials like 15-inch steel wheels, vinyl and cloth upholstery, a fold-flat passenger seat, power windows, and tilt-wheel steering. Standard air conditioning remains a traditional comfort offering, however, as does the 2-speaker AM/FM stereo.

Moving up to the SV, look for such additional standard goodies as remote keyless door locks, a trip computer, cruise control, and cargo tie-downs.

Besides the new rear parking sensors,options for both NV200 trims include, a rear-view camera, satellite radio, Bluetooth calling and music streaming, splash guards, and Nissan’s fleet tracking technology.The Technology Package — boasting GPS navigation bolstered by a 5.8-inch touchscreen, a USB port, smartphone apps, and a text-messaging assistant — also returns for the coming model year.

Finally, standard safety equipment adorning the 2015 NV200 includes 4-wheel antilock brakes, side-mounted and head airbags, daytime running lights, and a remote antitheft alarm.


Have Laptop. Will Travel. I'm retired and travelling the country in a 34' motor home. I'm really digging meeting people . . and sometimes their cars . . . getting a sense of what makes this nation tick. The plan is to visit all the national parks in the continental US, then cruise to Alaska to visit Denali, and to Hawaii to check out Haleakala and the Hawaii Volcano's national parks. Anyhow, when I'm not horsing the motor home around the roadways, I'm tooting around in the 2012 Ford Focus that we tow behind, or making runs to Home Depot and various malls with the 2004 F-150 that just won't die.
