2020 Nissan NV200 VAN: Redesign, Specs, Price & Release Date
2020 Nissan NV200 VAN: Redesign, Specs, Price & Release Date | The Nissan NV200 is a lineup of light-duty cargo vehicles designed to provide capability and reliability. So far, it has been able to provide capability and reliability. In fact, the current model, the Previous Nissan NV200 is considered one of the most affordable and efficient cargo vehicles.
Soon enough, we are going to see a new member of the lineup: the 2020 Nissan NV200. Will the 2020 NV200 be as good as the Previous NV200? How will it look like? What kind of engine and features will it come with? Do you want to know more about the upcoming NV200? If you do, just read on.
We would like to mention that the information that we present here is our expectation for the upcoming NV200. We base our expectation from the available information of said model as well as its predecessor model. Also, the images that we include here are just illustrations, not the real images of the NV200.
2020 Nissan NV200 Redesign
Since the Nissan NV200 is a cargo vehicle, a redesign is not the main concern for the manufacturer. What is more important for a cargo vehicle are its capability, reliability, and carrying capacity. That said, the NV200 has remained mostly unchanged from 2013. While we don’t know for sure, a redesign may happen for the 2020 NV200. The upcoming NV200 will surely benefit from a redesign that will make it a better cargo vehicle for 2020.
For a cargo vehicle, the function is more important than style. Unsurprisingly, the 2020 Nissan NV200 is lacking in styling. Rather than focusing on good-look, Nissan designed the NV200 to be practical. For instance, Previous NV200 has dual-sliding side doors, which make it very accessible. Or, rear doors that can be opened to up to 90 degrees or 180 degrees.
The NV200 also comes with flat sides and a rather blunt nose. As such, it is easy to install vinyl decals or wrap that is commonly used in private businesses that utilize cargo vehicles.
Since exterior styling is not a major concern for the lineup, a major redesign is not likely to happen for the 2020 Nissan NV200. So, don’t expect too much of it. However, the upcoming NV200 may come with some small changes or updates here and there that will make it a better light-duty cargo vehicle for 2020.
2020 Nissan NV200 Interior
Just like the exterior, the interior is focused on function rather than style. The 2020 NV200 will inherit the interior of the Previous NV200, which means it most of the interior will not change. Inside, the interior will be stark. The cargo space should be big. The Previous NV200 has a cargo space of 122.7 cubic feet and is able to carry up to 1,480 pounds of payload. The 2020 NV200 should have at least the same cargo space. The front seats should be easy to access. The controls should be easy-to-reach, effective, and simple.
Not much can be expected from the interior of the upcoming 2020 Nissan NV200. The main complaints about the interior are that the armrest is poor and the steering wheel can’t be adjusted, which is uncomfortable for some people. Will Nissan fix these issues for the upcoming NV200? We don’t know yet.
2020 Nissan NV200 Specs
The Previous NV200 has only one engine option: a 2.0L, four-cylinder engine capable of delivering up to 131 horsepower with up to 139 lb-ft of torque. For a vehicle, this may not seem impressive at all. It may even seem lacking. However, for a light-duty cargo vehicle, this amount is enough to do all the tasks thrown at it. In terms of acceleration, the engine is able to cover 0 to 60 mph in 10 seconds. The engine is paired with a gearless CVT and come with the front-wheel-drive system.
In terms of performance, the 2020 NV200 should be easy to drive like the Previous NV200. Despite being a cargo vehicle, the Previous NV200 feels quite agile on the road. Also, thanks to its small size, the Previous NV200 can slip into tight places easily. The handling is quite good for a cargo vehicle while the braking is excellent for everyday applications.
Since the engine of the Previous Nissan NV200 is already capable and reliable, we don’t think Nissan will introduce a new engine for the 2020 Nissan NV200. Most likely, the 2020 NV200 will carry over the 2.0L engine. With the same engine, we can expect the NV200 to have more or less the same performance as the current model. It should be at least as capable and as reliable as the Previous NV200.
In terms of features, the 2020 Nissan NV200 should come with the following as standard: 15-inch wheels, a 5.0-inch display for controlling phone and audio functions, adjustable front seats, power door locks, power windows, cargo-area work light, a floor protector for the cargo-bay, a rearview camera, a rearview monitor, an audio system, and a USB port.
The higher trim level should come with those standard features with the addition of cruise control, wheel covers, satellite radio, power heated exterior mirrors, rear power outlet, and six D-rings on the cargo floor.
As for optional features, the following features should be available for the 2020 NV200: keyless entry, a 5.8-inch touchscreen display with mobile app system, rear sonar sensors, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, NissanConnect navigation, voice recognition, USB input, sliding passenger-door with a window an interior rearview mirror, a rear defroster, rear parking sensors, wire mesh guards, and privacy glass.
2020 Nissan NV200 Release Date and Price
The release date is not yet announced by Nissan. We can expect the upcoming NV200 to enter the market somewhere this year, probably in the second half of the year. The NV200 is meant to be a 2020 model, after all.
While there is no official price yet, we can guess that the starting price of the 2020 Nissan NV200 will be in the $23,000-$24,000 range. After all, the starting price of the Previous NV200 is around $23,085 so the price of the 2020 NV200 should not be too far from that number. A slight increase should be expected, though.
