BASE PRICE RANGE: $21,000-$23,000*
BODY TYPE: Full-size Van

WHAT'S NEW: The NV200 could finally give the Ford Transit Connect some competition in the small commercial van segment. Nissan still stops short of a confirmation that the van will make it to the U.S. market. Available in different configurations from two to seven seats, the NV200 can hold more than 148 cu-ft of cargo.

COOL FACT: Nissan is considering the introduction of an all-electric NV200 van to follow in the footsteps of the Leaf.
