The Nissan NV200 slots in right between the long and short wheelbase Transit Connect size wise, but it is less expensive than either of them. The short wheelbase Transit Connect is $1600 more expensive than the base NV200, and the long wheelbase model starts at $2,600 more. The NV200 has about 17 cu-ft more cargo room than the short Ford too, and just 8 cu-ft less than the long one.
Even though it cost less, the Nissan NV200 comes with more standard convenience features than the Transit Connect. Here are a few things you don’t get standard on the Ford:
Isn’t it time your business moved into the 21st century and stopped making service calls in a V8 van that barely gets 12mpg?
