DESIGN / HIGHLIGHTS
2015 Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo Features Updated NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps, Increased MPG. Continues to offer smart design, efficient packaging and low cost of operation. Now in its third year of production, the popular Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo van continues to set the standard for compact cargo van design, combining a small exterior footprint and excellent fuel efficiency with a large cargo capacity and outstanding versatility.
The 2015 NV200 also offers America's best commercial van warranty*, increasing basic limited warranty coverage from 3 years/36,000 miles to 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. The powertrain limited warranty has also been extended from 5 years/60,000 miles to 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
With its efficient 2.0-liter 16-valve 4-cylinder engine, refined Xtronic transmission and cargo bay that allows for loading standard U.S. 40 x 48-inch pallets, the NV200 offers fleet and small business owners alike an alternative to their larger, less fuel-efficient vehicles – along with a low projected total cost of ownership.
The NV200 Compact Cargo is designed to be highly maneuverable in traffic or when negotiating city parking spaces, with a 36.7-foot curb-to-curb turning diameter. Yet it is every inch a business workhorse with its wide-opening doors and ability to carry standard U.S. pallets enhancing its exceptional utility.
The tall rear doors are a 40/60-split design, with the 60-percent side on the right (curb) side for easy access from a sidewalk. The 40-percent left side door is shorter, reducing its potential intrusion into the street when open, helping lower the risk of accidents due to passing vehicles. Both rear doors feature dual opening positions of 90º and 180º. The standard sliding side doors are designed for low effort. All doors are solid (no windows) to accommodate advertising or business signage, with available privacy door glass, with passenger side sliding door glass and back door glass with privacy and defroster optionally available.
Added commercial flexibility is provided by the 20 standard integrated, reinforced cargo-mounting points, which allow installation of racks and shelves without drilling into the sidewalls, and six available floor mounted cargo hooks (standard on SV models) in the cargo area. Six exterior roof rack mounting points are also standard.
The NV200 Compact Cargo's exterior design features a Nissan signature front grille, aerodynamic front-end design and functional cabin design. Other exterior features include halogen headlights, durable black front and rear bumpers and outside mirrors with wide-angle spotter mirrors and available heated function. Body-colored bumpers and outside mirrors are also offered.
A Driver-Focused Cockpit: The NV200's driver-focused cockpit includes both comfort and functional features. The driver's seat is mounted in a high ''commanding'' position that is easy to get in and out of and provides a good view of the road and surrounding environment. The 6-way adjustable seat with manual lumbar and armrest is designed for durability with outboard vinyl wear patches.
The passenger's seat is a 4-way adjustable design. Height-adjustable front seat head restraints and front door map pockets are also standard.
The Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo offers ''Mobile Office'' functionality with a center console featuring laptop/hanging file folder storage, pen/pencil tray, CD holder and dual cupholders. Recessed storage areas are provided on the upper instrument panel for folders and documents.
In addition, the passenger seat folds down to serve as a worktop or lunch table, or it extends the cargo space for hauling longer items such as pipe or lumber. Passenger seat slide travel is nearly 9.5 inches. The durable 15x13-inch tray built into the seatback can fit most laptops and includes a penholder for use as desk.
Power windows with auto up/down are standard, as is a 12-volt power outlet on the instrument panel. An additional 12-volt power point in rear of center console is available. There is also a passenger-side under-seat storage tray, drive computer, battery saver feature, AM/FM/CD with auxiliary input and two front door mounted speakers.

''Right-Sized'' to Maximize Cargo Efficiency: While anchoring the lower end of the Nissan Commercial Vehicle lineup – when it comes to dimensions – the 2015 Nissan NV200 more than holds its own in terms of workhorse-like utility against the larger, full-size NV 1500/2500/3500 Cargo and extra-large NV 2500/3500 Cargo High Roof Vans.
More than 4.5 feet shorter in length and 2.5 feet lower in height compared to the Nissan NV 2500/3500 High Roof, the NV200 Compact Cargo is designed to be the ''right size'' for small business owners and fleet operators wanting smaller, more efficient work vans.
Built on Nissan's proven compact commercial platform, the NV200 Compact Cargo offers high cargo volume capacity in a small exterior package. Unique for North America, the NV200 Compact Cargo body is extended 7.9 inches versus the models sold in other global markets. This longer body length offers additional cargo carrying capability for North American customers.
The combination of a 115.2-inch wheelbase with a 186.3-inch overall length, along with a compact drivetrain and rear suspension, provides an 82.8-inch cargo length, 54.8-inch cargo width (48.0 inches between the rear wheel wells) and 53.0-inch cargo area height. With its low cargo floor liftover height (21.1 inches) and tall roofline, the NV200 Compact Cargo a large cargo capacity of 122.7 cubic feet. Payload is estimated at 1,480 pounds (S model).
