  • No significant changes for the 2014 model year

Introduction
The 2014 Nissan NV200 Cargo Van is a compact, front-wheel-drive (FWD), 2-passenger utility model available in two trim levels powered by a 4-cylinder engine. Competitors include the Chevrolet City Express (an NV200 rebadged as a Chevy), Ford Transit Connect, and, to a lesser extend, the mid-size Ram C/V Tradesman.

Models and Features
The base version of the 2014 NV200 Cargo Van is referred to as the S trim level. This is where buyers will find standard features including 15-in. steel wheels, dual sliding doors, black exterior trim, cloth upholstery, height-adjustable driver's seat and flat-folding passenger's seat, vinyl flooring, and a simple 2-speaker sound system. Also found among the amenities are power windows, manual air conditioning, exterior temperature gauge, and a center console.

An SV trim level tops off the lineup, and boasts upgrades like cruise control, multiple rear tie-down hooks, heated mirrors, power door locks, keyless entry, and an extra power outlet in the cargo area.

Options and Packages
Drivers in areas where talking on a cell phone while driving is now illegal will likely appreciate the option of equipping their 2014 Nissan NV200 Cargo Van with a hands-free Bluetooth system, and the available Back Door Glass package (which also includes an interior rearview mirror and rear defroster) is more or less a must-have for those who shift the transmission into reverse.

Those items are offered on both trim levels, but the Technology package is reserved for the SV. As its name implies, this bundle of goodies features a 5.8-in. touch screen, Bluetooth connectivity and streaming audio, satellite radio, text-messaging capability, navigation system with voice commands, rearview camera, and access to apps such as Pandora.

An Exterior Appearance package is yet another SV exclusive, one that bundles body-color trim with a chrome grille and a set of hubcaps.

Under the Hood
Regardless of trim level selected, every 2014 Nissan NV200 Cargo Van features the same 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that delivers 131 horsepower and 139 lb.-ft. of torque to the front wheels via a standard continuously variable transmission (CVT). Other mechanical bits include electric steering and a suspension consisting of front struts and rear leaf springs.

Nissan claims the NV200 provides 122.7 cu. ft. of cargo space and can carry a 1,500-lb. payload.

Fuel Economy
That single powertrain has earned EPA fuel-economy ratings of 24 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the highway, and 24 mpg combined. Nissan recommends filling the tank with regular-grade gasoline.

Safety Ratings and Technology
As this overview is written, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has rated the crashworthiness of the 2014 Nissan NV200 Cargo Van.

Nissan hasn't overloaded its small cargo van with related technology, but it has addressed the basics by incorporating 4-wheel anti-lock brakes with front ventilated discs and rear drums, electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist, 6 air bags, and the optional rearview camera.
