The depth of Nissan’s NV400 range means you can find the perfect model to meet your business challenges. With a tough build, large cargo capacity and strong engines, the NV400 model can meet any task head on.
The highly functional NV400 also has an appealing form. The front face isn’t dissimilar to Nissan’s SUVs, and from every angle, the van’s hardy character is obvious. A robust plastic trim stretches along each side and over the steel wheels to protect the body from any small bumps. The door mirrors are made from the same material and include integrated indicators that let other road users anticipate your next move.
The exact interior arrangement will depend on the model you pick, but you can expect comfort, support and a wealth of convenient features from every variant. The largest Panel Van has room for up to 17,000 litres of cargo and a maximum payload of 2,254kg. If passengers are the priority, the Crew Bus seats nine. With Crew Van, Tipper, Dropside, Box Van and Freezer/Chiller versions also on sale, you are sure to find the NV400 that perfectly aligns with your business needs.

Performance and efficiency
All engines have a common base - a state-of-the art 2.3-litre common rail/direct injection, four-cylinder, 16-valve turbo diesel developed by Alliance partner Renault.
A pair of single turbo units produce 110hp/285Nm (previously 100hp) and 125hp/310Nm and these are joined by a pair of newly developed Twin Turbo units, developing 135hp/340Nm and 165hp/360Nm. Also available is a 150hp/350Nm version of the engine that has a variable geometry single turbo and is available only with a robotised semi-automatic gearbox.
The new Twin Turbo models are seen as ideal for vans and chassis cabs needed for heavy-duty work or for longer journeys. The technology uses a small turbocharger to generate increased torque at low revs (up to 1,500 rpm) for more rapid acceleration at city speeds or when fully laden.
At higher engine speeds, the larger turbo takes over to provide more power and a usefully wider torque band that is especially appreciated at motorway speeds. Thanks to this increased flexibility, there is less need to change gear to maintain momentum. This not only reduces driver fatigue but also enhances fuel economy.
The NV400 also benefits from a number of advanced technologies providing greater safety and enhanced cabin comfort.
One such feature is Extended Grip, which is available on both front- and rear- wheel drive versions of NV400. Operated via a dashboard button, Extended Grip works with the new ESC system to optimise traction in tricky conditions such as mud, sand and snow. Extended Grip transfers engine torque between each of the driven wheels as required and by as much as 25 per cent to help start off and to maintain traction.
Another feature is Hill Start Assist, which automatically operates when pulling away on a slope with a gradient of more than 3 per cent. Primed by pressing the footbrake, when the driver moves his foot from brake pedal to throttle the system ensures the van will not move backwards for two seconds - by which time the driver will be ready to pull away.
A comprehensive range of active and passive safety features help to prevent incidents in the NV400 and keep everyone on board safe if they do happen. All models support you with Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), which monitors the van’s performance and intervenes with the braking or power output to keep it stable. ABS stops the wheels from locking under heavy braking, so you can steer away from obstacles. Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) even varies braking pressure according to the conditions for optimum stopping power.
The NV400’s car-like feel is enhanced by technology such as Bluetooth audio streaming as part of the audio system. You can also play music from an external device by connecting it via the USB or auxiliary socket.
When it comes to transporting lots of goods efficiently, the Nissan NV400 panel van is a brilliant choice – no matter what the job. Available with front-wheel drive as well as rear-wheel drive, it offers you a cargo volume of up to 17m³, and a payload of up to 2,134kg.
Offering three lengths and three roof heights, the front-wheel drive NV400 van can be tailored to fit your needs. With this extensive range, you'll find just the right combination for maximum business efficiency.
The front-wheel drive NV400 has a lower loading sill and more space inside. Cargo volume ranges from 8m³ to 14.8m³.
If loadspace length is critical, opt for the rear-wheel drive NV400 in one of the two wheelbases – 6.2m or 6.8m.
The rear-wheel drive layout creates optimum front-to-rear balance, for better payload distribution. This improves stability when fully loaded – an important consideration given that the rear-wheel drive NV400 can take up to 17m³ in volume.
Rear doors that open through 270° are available as an option, and swing easily out of the way, to make the most of the NV400’s width and height. Loading and unloading is a breeze – whether by hand or by forklift.
Magnetic catches hold the 270° doors against the side of the vehicle, so you can load safely, making use of every inch of the rear opening.
Enquire with Crayford and Abbs in Mundesley or Bodham to take a closer look at the NV400 and to arrange a test drive of the van. Speak to an adviser over the phone or contact us through the website and we will respond shortly.
