Nissan updates NV300 and NV400 vans

Nissan has revamped its NV300 and NV400 mid- and full-size vans with a number of improvements that bring increased comfort, safety and style alongside new Euro 6d-TEMP powertrains with lower emissions.

Safety updates see a range of Nissan Intelligent Mobility features installed in both the NV300 and NV400

The changes see the introduction of new powertrains meeting new Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standards, with cleaner engines and reduced NOx.

Under the changes, the Nissan NV300 – available in passenger Combi, panel van or crew van variants – gains a new 2.0-litre diesel engine, bringing increased power thanks to the introduction of 170hp and 145hp variants alongside a 120hp version and the 1.6-litre 95hp.  Also available is a brand new dual clutch transmission, offering improved driver comfort and increased improved fuel efficiency, while the NV300 interior has been revamped with upgraded seat fabric, satin chrome finishes, a new dashboard colour and improved equipment, including a new-generation DAB audio system.

The updated NV400 is available in a variety of body types – including panel van, dropside single/double cab, tipper, crew van, or as a base for conversions, including chassis single/double cab or platform cab. It’s powered by the same 2.3-litre Euro 6d-TEMP diesel engine as fitted in the Nissan Navara pickup – offered in 180hp and 150hp variants with manual or auto gearbox and a 135hp manual-only version. Along with the new 2.3-litre Euro 6d-TEMP engines, the NV400 is also available with the 2.3-litre Euro VI engines, with 145hp or 165hp power outputs and rear-wheel drive.

As well as new engines, the NV400 also gets the new Nissan interlocking grille on the outside and a complete refresh of its cabin, including an all-new dashboard and steering wheel design for improved comfort, ergonomics and premium appearance. It also delivers improved storage and utility including a pull-out tray and generous door panel storage.

And it introduces new features such as an updated Infotainment system in the style of a smartphone replication.

Changes to both models also bring enhanced technology and connectivity, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration. There is also a new-look interface on the seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which replicates the familiar layout of a smartphone and provides fast access to maps and media services.

Furthermore, the NV400 sees the addition of several new Nissan Intelligent Mobility safety options, including Blind Spot Warning and Side Wind and Lane Departure Alert. Also included are auto wipers and lights, Rear Park Assist, rear view camera and Hill Start Assist. While for enhanced security in the loading area, extra locks have been added to the rear and side doors.

Paolo D’Ettore, light commercial vehicles (LCV) director for Nissan Europe, said: “We understand that keeping down total cost of ownership without sacrificing essentials like comfort, safety and technology is vital for commercial drivers who make a living from driving but who also spend a great deal of time on the road. That’s why we continue to improve our entire range of LCVs as part of our ‘Your Future Guaranteed’ promise. This includes the newly upgraded NV300 and NV400, which are now more cost-effective, comfortable and connected than ever.”

Prices start from £21,655 for NV300 and from £24,390 for NV400.
