Introducing the Nissan NV250
Hard working compact panel vans don't get much better than the Nissan NV250, which has been engineered to offer a hassle-free and dependable driving experience everyday.
Despite being smaller than its siblings, the NV250 punches well above its weight with a large cargo area that is robust and versatile. On top of this, there is the option to choose different body types based on the needs of your business.
Times have moved on, and panel vans are more than just a mode of transport for your tools or deliveries. Nissan's latest technology can be found inside for a more serene driving experience, while the range of available engines have been designed to reduce emissions and improve fuel economy.
Payload and Capacity
The versatile nature of the Nissan NV250 means it can be tailored to suit the needs of your business. There are two body lengths to choose from and two differing body types.
The shortest version is called the 'L1' and boasts a cargo volume of 3.5m3, while it can haul a payload of up to 650 kg in the back. Aptly named 'L2', the longer version has a payload of up to 800kg, while cargo volume increases to a welcome 4.6m3.
Depending on what you need, you can opt for a standard panel van; or you can choose a crew van, which gives you comfortable seating for four passengers alongside cargo space for your tools and equipment.
Technology and Safety
Nissan NV250 is generously equipped with some of the latest driver aids and safety features on the market, which are designed to give you peace of mind when driving between jobs.
Hill Start Assist is a must-have for any van that's fully-loaded in the back, while cruise control is guaranteed to make those long journeys on the motorway easy work. Parking your van has never been simpler thanks to the available rear view camera, which displays a crisp image of what's behind you on your centre console.
Other safety features include the Electronic Stability Program, which helps by stabilising the vehicle, and front air bags for the driver and passenger.
Economy and Performance
The sole 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine is a strong performer that suits the lightweight nature of the NV250 down to a tee.
It's available in three variants (80bhp, 95bhp and115 bhp respectively) and manages to deliver a healthy wedge of torque from 1,750 rpm for maximum pulling-power. It even meets the Euro 6 emissions standards.
The efficient nature of this engine means you can expect between 50-60 mpg on a combined cycle, which is bound to help with the annual overheads. The reasonable running costs continue with the generous service intervals, which are every 2 years or 25,000 miles.
A 6-speed manual gearbox comes as standard across the range, and makes for seamless progress both in-and-out the city.
