Nissan Announces 2015 NV200 Pricing
Slight Price Increases in Store for Both Models
Nissan has announced official pricing for the 2015 NV200, with a $290 price increase for both the NV200 S and the NV200 SV models. The S now starts at $20,720 and the SV starts at $21,710, before adding $860 for destination and handling. Thanks to an updated CVT transmission (called Xtronic by the company), the new compact cargo van also will see a 1-mpg increase in highway and combined fuel economy, at least as rated by the EPA.
Rounding out the changes for 2015 are new options for sliding door glass and a rear sonar system, an updated infotainment system, and two new colors. As before, the NV200 has the best commercial-vehicle warranty in the business, and the little van can carry a payload of up to 1,480 pounds.
This gives the NV200 a slightly lower payload capacity than both the 2015 Ford Transit Connect and Ram ProMaster City. However, the Nissan gets better city fuel economy than the Transit Connect and costs somewhat less as well, even fully loaded. Pricing and economy figures are not yet available for the smallest Ram, which will go on sale early in 2015.
We've appreciated the economy, maneuverability, and versatility of our long-term 2013 NV200 SV, so if that modest price bump isn’t a huge deterrent to potential buyers, the 2015 model should preserve those values pretty well.
