The 2021 Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo looks like a slightly diminutive version of every other typical commercial cargo van. Visually, the S comes fitted with rudimentary exterior features, including a black front grille, black manually-adjustable side mirrors, and a black-colored rear bumper, with 15-inch steel wheels filling the arches. The SV is upgraded with a silver-painted front grille, body-colored power heated side mirrors, a body-color rear bumper, and wheel covers for the standard 15-inch steel wheels. Multi-reflector halogen headlights with daytime running lights are standard on both trims, along with a rear high-mounted center brake light.
The NV200's core appeal lies within its diminutive dimensions as a compact van purposefully aimed at small business owners wanting smaller, more efficient cargo carriers. Its overall body length spans 186.3 inches, its wheelbase 115.2 inches, its overall height is 73.7 inches, and its width works out to 68.1 inches. For comparison, that makes the NV200 a bit shorter than average with the LWB Ford Transit Connect's length of 190 inches and the Ram ProMaster City's length of 187.1 inches. Its wheelbase is up to five inches shorter than both. The S grade NV200 carries a curb weight of 3,274 lbs while the SV weighs in at 3,282 lbs. Both have a running ground clearance of 6.4 inches in front and 6.1 inches at the back. These figures make the NV200 one of the lightest vans in the class with one of the higher ground clearances as well.

This year, Gun metallic joins the color palette. It's joined by three others which are carried over from last year and they are Brilliant Silver, Super Black, and Fresh Powder. The only remotely vibrant shade on offer is Cayenne Red metallic but only the SV has access to this one. For the S, we recommend the Super Black exterior hue simply to integrate the black-colored rear bumper. For the SV, we recommend either the Super Black or the Fresh Powder (White) as the two options that would best accommodate advertising or business signage.
