NV200 was judged to be the best in class for its significant storage capacity and huge versatility.
Matt Eisenegger, editor of Trade Van Driver, commented: ‘This small van with the big interior is now becoming a common sight on the UK’s roads.
‘It’s hardly surprising as although it has a small footprint ideal for city use, it will swallow an amazing 4.2 cubic metres of cargo – more than any other van in the sector. No wonder so many trade buyers are opting for this vehicle.’
The NV200 is available as a panel van – with a 1.5 dCi engine with 85hp or 110hp – and as a five or seven seat Combi. The NV200 comes well equipped with Bluetooth connectivity across the entire range and the n-tec Panel Van and SE+ Combi feature the popular Nissan Connect satellite navigation and communications system along with cruise control and a speed limiter which can be adjusted by the driver.
James Douglas, corporate sales director, Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd, commented: ‘The NV200 has been designed as the most versatile compact van.
Perfect for city driving
‘Its compact dimensions and tight turning circle make it perfect for city driving while still offering the largest cargo volume in its category. We are delighted to receive this award from Trade Van Driver.’
The Trade Van Driver Awards give recognition to vehicle manufacturers who, in the opinion of the judges, offer the very best to van buyers.
The judging panel includes the magazine’s journalists and a panel of readers who use LCVs as part of their businesses. Trade Van Driver magazine caters for the owner-driver and small fleet operator.
