The first major competitor to the Ford Transit Connect in the U.S. market, the Nissan NV200 has made some inroads into the small commercial van market both among small business users and taxi fleets. Making no pretense of being consumer-oriented has helped Nissan keep the prices down for its value-oriented business shoppers on the NV200. But as is usually the case going from one model year to the next, Nissan has raised the base MSRP on both trims of the NV200 by $250.

The 2014 NV200 S model now starts at $21,100 and the SV model starts at $22,090. Both prices include $860 in destination charges. No major changes have been announced for the 2014 model, meaning a single powertrain choice for the U.S. market, a 2.0-liter I-4 producing 131 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque, mated to a mandatory continuously-variable automatic transmission.

The U.S.-spec Nissan NV200 comes from Nissan's plant in Cuernavaca, Mexico. European models come from Nissan's plant in Barcelona, Spain. North American-spec NV200s differ slightly from their international counterparts with a slightly longer wheelbase, and chassis reinforcements to deal with tougher use and generally poorer road quality conditions of the U.S.

The NV200 also recently made headlines for being the basis of the future London Taxi, with a unique front clip with round headlights, and a gasoline engine. London "black cabs" have traditionally used diesel engines for the past several decades.
