2019 Nissan NV – Cargo & Passenger Van
The Nissan Van (NV) Series presents a variety of solutions that are fully customizable to your commercial needs. It’s offered in Cargo and Passenger van style as well as a highly maneuverable Compact version that’s perfect for navigating tight urban streets. The Cargo Van is built for those who need a business vehicle with a spacious cargo area, while the Passenger Van suits families or businesses that need to carry up to 12 passengers. Let’s examine this trio of versatile vehicles with a bit more depth.
NV200 Compact Cargo
The NV200 Compact Cargo is a durable business vehicle with a surprising amount of cargo capacity: it does not sacrifice storage for maneuverability and performance. It’s excellent as a fleet vehicle, especially for light delivery. This front-wheel drive van’s smaller size, tight turning radius, and outstanding handling make it the clear choice for city settings.
The NV200 Compact Cargo comes in two trim levels: S and SV. Both get a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine making 131 horsepower; this engine is paired to a continuously variable transmission for optimal gas mileage. The S trim comes with 15-inch wheels, a sliding side door on both driver’s and passenger’s sides, wide-angle spotter mirrors, a rearview camera, Bluetooth capability, and a 5-inch color display. The SV adds heated power mirrors, remote keyless entry, cruise control, six floor-mounted D-rings in the cargo area, and an available navigation package, which includes a 5.8-inch touchscreen display, voice controls, and smartphone integration.

This high-capacity vehicle is ideal for businesses involved in transporting passengers and their luggage. The rear-wheel-drive NV passenger van is available in three trim levels: S, SV, and SL. The S and SV models are equipped with a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine that supplies 261 horsepower and 281 lb.-ft. of torque; this engine is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. For those who need more power, there is an available 5.6-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine that delivers 375 horsepower and 387 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. The V8 engine is optional on the S and SV trims, but it comes standard on the SL trim.
The S trim comes standard with three rows of configurable bench seats that can seat up to 12 passengers, power windows, remote keyless entry, a 12-volt DC power outlet, a USB port, cruise control, a 7-inch touch-screen color display, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, Bluetooth audio streaming technology, and a four-speaker sound system. The SV model adds a security system, eight-way power driver’s seat, additional 12-volt power outlets, rear parking sensors, and an upgraded six-speaker audio system. The highest trim, the SL, adds leather upholstery for all rows of seating, fog lights, front parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a navigation system.
