Lately, it seems a lot of car companies are thinking small – or, at least, smaller. Mini’s comeback has been undeniable; the Smart car is showing up in tiny parking spaces in cities across the U.S. And, even big SUVs that were de rigeur in the ‘90s are being replaced by their more svelte cousins in the crossover utility segment
Nissan, whose Cube has given the compact utility segment a fresh, modern face in recent seasons, is no stranger to thinking small. But in 2012, this popular Japanese manufacturer is also thinking big – really big. Big enough to fit a painter’s ladders or a craftsman’s tool chests. Big enough to fit nearly a dozen people. That’s big!
The 2012 Nissan NV (Nissan van) will appeal to a wide audience of buyers that need to carry loads of goods, as well as purveyors that carry groups and gear, such as colleges, churches and airport livery services.
