Used Nissan Interstar for sale
It seems as if Nissan can't quite figure out what to call their largest van, after being originally called the Interstar, it was renamed the N400, and now from 2022 we're back to calling it the Interstar.
Names aside, it's a great van for those who need to carry large items, and best of all there's a lot of different bodystyles, so finding the right used Nissan Interstar should be a walk in the park.
- Multiple bodystyles
- Lots of payload
- Practical cabin
- Front and rear-wheel drive available
- Choice of diesel engines
Economy, Towing, and Performance
Nissan Interstar uses a 2.3-litre turbo diesel engine, with varying power outputs ranging from around 108bhp to 178bhp.
You'll see anywhere between 30mpg and 40mpg for an Interstar, depending on specification. Real world driving will always differ depending on what you'll use the van for, but 30 to 40mpg seems to be the norm in terms of economy for a van of this size.
Performance is good when it comes to the Interstar, with rear-wheel drive models better suited for heavier loads. If you're looking to tow with a used Nissan Interstar, all vans are capped by law at a 750kg unbraked weight.
However, rear-wheel drive versions can tow up to 3,500kg with a braked trailer, whilst front-wheel drive versions are able to tow up to 2,500kg with a braked trailer.
Bodystyles, Payload, and Capacity
There's plenty of choice when it comes to bodystyles when looking at a used Nissan Interstar. Along with the textbook panel van - in different sizes, there's also a box van, platform cab, chassis cab, tipper cab and dropside cab.
For the panel van, you can expect a payload of up to 1,587kg depending on specific specification.
Again, for the panel vans the capacity stats are as follows:
- Load Length = Between 2,583mm and 3,733mm depending on model
- Load Height = Between 1,700mm and 2,144mm depending on model
- Load Width = 1,765mm across all panel vans, front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive
Interior, Technology, and Safety
When the Interstar was called the Nissan NV400, the van itself had been on sale for a while.
Therefore, the interior has been updated slightly, but the utilitarian vibe is still there. That said, the dials of the instrument cluster are clear. Higher specification models look better still with updated tweaks including things like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Safety tech is good by modern standards, but higher-specification models are worth hunting out if you require things like blind spot monitoring within the sun visor and a rear view camera within the rear view mirror. These are available on 'Tekna' trims and above.
Is the Nissan Interstar right for me?
If you're after a large, dependable workhorse of a van, then the Nissan Interstar is still worth considering. It's not massively different from the old version named the Nissan N400, so you could save yourself a bit of money by looking at them in your search too.
Competition is fierce from the textbook Ford Transit, whilst those who want more comfort and plushness will be better off looking at a Volkswagen Crafter or Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.
