I genuinely like utility vehicles. I like their honesty, form-follows-functionitude, and I like it when they prove to be fun to drive despite everything. It's like when you learn a really serious theologian does a party trick lighting farts. The NV200 isn't quite that fun, but I enjoyed my time with this little useful van.
Nissan's still relatively new to the van game here in the US, which thanks to the Chicken Tax and a number of other factors is still dominated by Ford and Chevy. Their first entry was the full-sized NV2000, which I'm not particularly fond of. The NV2000 has a very long, truck-like hood, and to me, that's the worst thing a van can have. A van is all about maximizing load space in relation to the overall area the van takes up, and a long hood is just useless area you can't cram things into. The NV200 still has a bit more hood than I'd like (I'm a cabover man at heart) but it's not nearly as bad.
