Compare Nissan NV200 to Chevy City Express

To some, the idea of a "small" cargo van might seem counterintuitive. After all, what use would a compact model have in the commercial segment?  For business throughout the United States, however, and particularly here in Winter Haven, FL, models such as the Nissan NV200 Cargo Van are quite popular for their fuel economy, tight driving dynamics and size.

Below is a comparison between Nissan's option and another top competitor.

Nissan NV200 vs Chevy City Express


One of the NV200's competitors is the Chevrolet City Express, a relative newcomer to the scene. At first glance, it might be hard to distinguish between the two, aside from the differing front end treatments. That's because the body shell, engineering, and powertrain of the Chevy City Express have all been borrowed from the Nissan model.


Both models feature the same powertrain--a 2.0L four-cylinder engine with 131 horsepower and 139 lb-ft of torque--the same 24 mpg city/26 mpg highway fuel economy rating, and the same 122.7 cubic feet of cargo room. While these numbers are quite impressive for a cargo van, it's the standard features and warranty that push the NV200 ahead of the pack.

Safety & Security:

The NV200 puts the safety and security of your vehicle first, with a standard security system the Chevrolet model does not offer. To protect the van itself, Nissan offers it with a superior 60-month/100,000 mile warranty. Conversely, the Chevrolet only comes with 36 months and 36,000 miles.


In spite of the similarities of shell, and the superior features of the NV200, the Nissan comes at a lower MSRP of $20,720. The Chevrolet City Express starts at $21,955 MSRP. Which is the better option, you ask? It seems pretty clear cut to us!


The Nissan NV200 offers a warranty that the Chevy City Express simply cannot touch, a 5-year, 100,000 mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty . When deciding between the NV200 or Chevy City Express, Tampa, Winter Haven and Lakewood business owners make the obvious choice, the Nissan NV200.

"Because it employs the same unibody construction as Nissan's small cars, the NV200 rides and drives very much like a compact SUV rather than a top-heavy van. Aided by its electric-assisted power steering, the NV200's extremely tight 36.7-foot turning radius allows it to execute U-turns in the narrowest of confines. The NV200's tall, narrow body allows it to fit into parking spots overlooked by larger vans, and the huge windshield provides excellent forward visibility"

"Inside, Nissan has already done some of the work for you by providing standard integrated mounting points to allow the installation of racks and shelves without the need to drill into the walls of the van. The mounting points paired with the six optional cargo hooks should give drivers an easy solution for securing their tools or supplies."

"The NV200's standard dual-sliding side doors make the cargo area accessible from either side of the vehicle. The French-style rear doors are split 40/60, with the wider door on the curbside to ease loading and unloading. Both doors open up to 180 degrees, so they won't get in the way; a 90-degree detent is also provided."
