Nissan NV200 - 7-Seat Van +Windows
The NV200 manages to be a van yet also look like a really big version of a family vehicle, so in this sense, it manages to look more attractive than your average van. Just take a look at the front.

Again, it seems to have borrowed the same tricks used in popular crossover SUVs. It sports front headlights that taper back and disguise the bulk at the front, and a windscreen that tapers back like a saloon or a hatchback rather than a typical van. The term Van with windows comes from the fact that when all seats are folded flat the cargo space is huge.
The NV200 Combi is available as a 5 and 7 seat. You get the seven seats with the SE and SE+ grade models, both having additional features than the regular S grade.
Prices range between £18,500 to just under £20,000. This price will include delivery, number plates, the first year’s car tax and full payment of the “showroom tax”. This vehicle is quite new so finding a second hand version is quite tricky.
C02 Emissions and Car Tax Bracket
The C02 emissions are considered low for the size and number of seats this vehicle has. They are between 138-144g/km for the SE and SE plus models respectively. This is one of the lowest C02 emitting people carriers you can get! Because it is considered not to be a commercial vehicle the VED isn’t fixed. The Car Tax is therefore based on the Co2 emissions. The 1.5dCi Euro V 89ps engine emits £138g/km of C02 making this vehicle fall into Car Tax bracket E. This currently costs £120 a year.
Safety features include ABS and EBD, front airbags and a range of security safety features. With the more expensive Combi SE+ option you get side airbags and ESP on top.
The boot space with all seats upright is 0.9 cubic meters. This increases to 2.1 with the two rear seats down and 2.9cubic meters boot space when the 2nd and 3rd row seats are folded flat. Hence the term Van with Windows.
Miles Per Gallon
Plus, there is that all-important fuel economy factor ― a major draw these days, especially when it comes to big vehicles that can keep petrol and diesel costs down to a minimum. Once it goes electric, these costs will come down even further. Nissan is clearly onto a winner. The fuel tank capacity is 55 litres. Fuel economy ranges from 44 to 57MPG.
Maximum speed is an acceptable 98 to 99 miles per hour, (158KMH). The engine size is 1461cc with 4000rpm. Only 5 gear diesel models are available in this country.
The tyre size for all Nissan NV200 Combi’s are 175/70R14C Offset 45P.c.D 114.3x4H.
All new Nissan NV200 Combi’s come with a 3year 60,000 mile warranty. This covers you for the whole of Europe. A longer warrantee is available if you require. Nissan European Roadside Assistance is also provided within the first three years.

Nissan NV200 Conclusion
As vans with sliding doors go, the Nissan NV200 Combi is about as sexy as it gets. Now this vehicle is set for a much wider launch, after a new Indian version was unveiled at this month’s Delhi motor show. This, plus, that all-important fuel economy factor ― a major draw these days, especially when it comes to big vehicles that can keep petrol and diesel costs down to a minimum. Once it goes electric, (rumoured to be in 2017) these costs will come down even further. Nissan is clearly onto a winner.
