Nissan's biggest, most serious van

Best bits

  • Nissan's version of the Renault Master
  • Wide choice of versions and bodystyles
  • Long service intervals.

Not so great

  • Interior quality not up to the standard of rivals
  • Rare on the used market
  •  Volkswagen Crafter and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter better all-rounders

Overall verdict

"If you think you've seen the NV400 somewhere before you have. It's Nissan's version of the Renault Master and Vauxhall Movano, albeit with Nissan's own front end styling applied."

Like its counterparts, the NV400 comes in either front or rear-wheel drive versions with three wheelbase versions, four different lengths, three different heights and cargo volumes ranging from 8.0 to 17.0 cubic metres.


It uses the same direct injection 2.3-litre four-cylinder diesel engine which is smaller than the Interstar's 2.5 dCi unit yet has the same power outputs - 100PS, 125PS and 150PS - with torque figures improved to 285Nm, 310Nm and 350Nm respectively. 


In 2020 the 2.3 turbodiesel engine was updated to meet Euro6d-TEMP emissions standards. Front-wheel drive versions are available with 135, 150 or 180PS, while rear-wheel drive vans get 145 or 165PS. As before, buyers get the option of a six-speed semi-automatic gearbox or a six-speed manual.


As well as the standard panel vans Nissan also offers a range of conversions including a chassis cab, a dropside and a tipper. There is a crew van which can seat up to seven people while still providing plenty of space in the cargo area along with an NV400 minibus which can carry nine people in comfort or combine six people and a generous load space.


There is also a Good To Go range of conversions including a a box van, Luton and refrigerated van, plus a 14-17 seat minibus option that is sold by Nissan business centres to operators as a complete vehicle. About the only downside of the NV400 is there’s no more powerful motor to make the most of its upper end of hauling ability and the cab is quite sparsely equipped in base models.


Similar vans to consider include the Renault Master, Ford Transit and the Volkswagen Crafter.
