The practical design of the Nissan NP200
When people think about a bakkie, they often think about the bulky elements to it. For example, an aggressive looking vehicle that is designed for people who merely want to drive into the bush or transport heavy equipment for work. But thankfully, the NP200 exceeds all expectations. Although it includes the traits mentioned above, it is incredibly appealing in looks. With its modern interior and sleek exterior, it’s no surprise that this design has become a firm favourite across the globe. At first glance, the NP200 features a large grille on the front bumper with a proud Nissan badge slammed on the middle, a clean overall look and a payload that can transport up to 800kgs. Internally, we have taken a simplistic approach that includes all the features that matter – adding convenience to your drive.
Nissan NP200 performance
Depending on which type of engine you choose, you will experience power. The NP200 model has a 1.6-litre engine which develops 85 hp at 5500 rpm. While it might not compete against bigger models such as the Nissan Navara, it certainly tops the light commercial vehicle (LCV) category. You are able to tow weight up that ranges up to 800kgs, with a 128Nm torque achieved from 3000rpm. In addition to these engine specs, it’s important to consider the impressive fuel consumption the NP200 offers.
Best-in-class Nissan NP200 fuel consumption
The price you pay for the quality you get is mind-blowing!
It’s not often that you find a compact workhorse bakkie that is able to conquer any task and take you to new heights for less. The all-new Nissan NP200 is budget-friendly, meaning that it is an ideal fleet vehicle for business purposes and even for your personal use.
Depending on the engine you choose to purchase, you can choose between a 1.5dCi diesel engine and a 1.6-litre engine. Both options are a 5-speed manual, with the main difference being the fuel consumption. However, as it stands, both engines are fuel-efficient and have the stamina to achieve any task. And fast. The petrol model offers 8+ litres per 100kms and the diesel model offers 5.3 litres per 100kms. You will have the chance to experience a 5-speed manual in both diesel and petrol. The NP200 petrol engine models come with a fuel consumption figure of 8.0 or 8.1 l/100km. And, even more impressive, the NP200 diesel engine models come with fuel consumption of 5.3 l/100km.
If this hasn’t convinced you to switch over to the all-new Nissan NP200, you can take the time to read through this NP200 fuel consumption article for further information.

Expert Nissan NP200 reviews
According to Auto Dealer “the NP200 Loaded offers versatility and practicality with a maximum 800kg payload, a 1 250 litres standard rubberized load box and specially designed tailgate that can handle 300kg. While still maintaining features from its predecessor such as glove box, door bins and two cup holders under the central console and storage space behind the seat.”
According to Top Car: “the NP200 – the ‘N’ stands for Nissan, the ‘P’ for pick-up and the 200 bit is apparently an internal Nissan designation – enjoys massive cabin space by half-ton class standards. As indicated by the addition of quarter windows behind the doors, there’s real-world stowage space behind the seats, and enough adjustment to accommodate large men (or women) up to around 1.9 metres in height.”
