Nissan announces NV200 tweaks
All NV200 models will be fitted with Bluetooth connectivity as standard, while SE trim will gain a rear-view camera too. Nissan has also introduced a new trim level, above the SE specification. Based on SE trim, n-tec also brings Nissan Connect satellite navigation, as well as a cruise control and a speed limiter.
For customers who want even more, there is also a HI-TEC option pack available with n-tec, which adds air conditioning and Intelligent Key remote keyless entry and engine starting. Provided the "key" fob is carried by the driver, the doors will unlock and allow the engine to be fired up.
As expected, Nissan has also introduced the higher-powered variant of the 1.5-litre common-rail diesel, originally developed by Renault. Like the Renault Kangoo, the NV200 will be available with the 110PS variant of the engine, which will be fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox in place of the five-speed 'box with 85PS models. Carbon dioxide emissions increase by 2.0g/km to 139g/km for the more powerful engine.
Five and seven-seat Combi models get similar treatment, with Bluetooth standard on all models. The top-spec Combi becomes "SE+", gaining similar equipment to the n-tec van, with Nissan Connect sat nav, cruise control and speed limiter. SE 110PS vans start from £13,635, while n-tec van prices start from £13,585 (ex-VAT) for Euro 5 89PS models.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
