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 8m3 to 17m3.

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. All are Euro 5 compliant and have lower running costs thanks to improved economy and to major service intervals which have been extended to 25,000 miles or every two years.

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 whichcan 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.
