Introducing the Nissan Interstar
Nissan's Interstar has built its reputation on dependability and versatility, which is why it's a popular choice among working professionals.
Flexibility is one of the biggest selling points of the Interstar, because it can be tailored to the majority of businesses. The Interstar is available in the following bodystyles:
- Panel van
- Crew van
- Box van
- Platform cab
The Interstar is the largest in Nissan's range of vans, and is loaded with useful features and driver aids that are designed to make everyday driving much easier.
Payload and Capacity
The most common variant, the Panel Van, is available in a combination of three heights and four lengths, depending on whether you opt for a front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive version.
The options available mean you can benefit from between 8.0 and 17.0 cubic metres of cargo volume. Cargo length sits between 2.6 and 4.4 metres, whilst payload capacity ranges between 901 and 1,587kg; depending on the specification you select.
If you need to transport a team regularly, then the Crew Van can accommodate up to seven people. Depending on the length and height combination, there's between 5.0 and 9.0 cubic metres of cargo volume, as well as a max payload of between 947 and 1,397kg.
More niche options, such as a Box Van or Platform Cab, are available. We recommend speaking to your nearest Evans Halshaw Nissan dealership for more information.
Technology and Safety
As you'd expect from Nissan, the Interstar's cabin is a robust and comfortable place to spend time between jobs.
Bluetooth connectivity and a DAB radio feature as standard across the range alongside a USB port and two speakers. The driver's seat offers substantial adjustment, while there's also a foldable central seat back with a fixed table.
If you're looking to buy multiple vans for your fleet, then the Interstar is available with a digital tachograph as an optional extra.

Economy and Performance
The Interstar is only available with a turbocharged 2.3-litre diesel engine. However, it's available in a variety of power outputs that range between 110 and 180bhp.
All engines meet Euro 6D emissions regulations, which means you can use the Interstar in low emissions zones without being charged. A selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system features on each engine to reduce emissions.
Service intervals of two years or 25,000 miles ensure the Interstar is affordable to maintain for both local businesses and fleet managers. Your nearest Evans Halshaw Nissan dealership can take care of any servicing requirements.
All versions of the Interstar come with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard, along with a gearshift indicator that helps maximise efficiency. A semi-automatic is available on the 150 and 180bhp engines.
