What can you expect from a cargo van because such vans usually not attract from outside but this Nissan NV Van is still nice to view from outside as well.
Starting from front it has very large grill with large chrome bars and large Nissan logo. It also has very large cooling area with tow hooks in particular models.
Moving to its side profile it has 17 inch chrome clad steel wheels that are obviously more suitable because it is a cargo van. Another notable thing in its side profile; it is quite different from it competitors because it didn’t have any short looking European front but has long pickup style.
