Business Owners Rejoice, Nissan Unveils The New Interstar LCV

Business owners across the UK, if you’re looking to invest into a brand-new fleet of LCVs, there is a new kid on the block. The old Nissan Interstar has finally been refreshed, refining upon the brand’s largest LCV offering. Now, it features increased size and versatility, and if you’re going down the diesel route, pre-orders for the updated Nissan Interstar is now open. Two trims are available at launch, the Acenta and Tekna, with the former starting from £33,090. Thankfully, the entry-level Acenta trim no longer feels like a compromise, offering more stuff to the table.

It includes basic necessities and creature comforts like air-con, though the Tekna trim level, for an extra £1,200, offers a huge selection of upgrades. This includes a heated windscreen, a rear-view camera, front parking sensors, 12V plug-in loading area, additional fixing points, and also a bit more lumbar adjustment for the driver’s seat. Sounds like the Tekna trim is the better deal for me, IMO. Nevertheless, whichever trim you go for, the all-new Nissan Interstar LCV will still include an industry and class-leading 5-year or 100,000-mile (whichever comes first) warranty.

Britain’s Best LCV Is Better Than Ever

From a practical perspective, Nissan offers a diverse array of factory-built conversions. As such, you can spec your Interstar either as a tipper, drop-side, with more box van options, as well as additional panel van variants, depending on what your business needs are. Therefore, you can have the best of all worlds, whether you need maximum cargo capacity, or if you require some heavy-duty hauling, and you could even consider adding more passenger room, too. These are now covered by the plethora of unique L2H2, L3H2 and L3H3 variants that you can pick from.

On top of that, the interior of the Nissan Interstar, for the driver at least, has been redesigned to offer more car-like nice-to-haves. That entails fitting in a 10.1-inch infotainment system, in addition to massive cup holders, huge overhead shelves, and tonnes of little cubbies and more stowage capacity. These alone total 80-litres, just for the driver and front passenger. Although Nissan intends on fully electrifying its LCV range by 2026, for now, this new Interstar is diesel-only. With that being said, Nissan has made effort in cranking as much out of it as possible.

Diesel Supremacy & ADAS Systems Aplenty

The all-new Nissan Interstar is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine, with varying outputs from 105PS to 170PS, and 330Nm to 380Nm of torque. Fuel economy figures are impressive as well, averaging 37.8mpg, and it could go as high as 41.5mpg in the N2 versions. And, for those of you who need top-notch payload and towing capacity, this new Interstar delivers in spades. It can handle up to 2-tonnes in payload (the future electric version aim to match this, too), and it boasts a respectable towing capacity of 2,500kg, which should ideal for most fleet owners.

Another handy aspect of this new Interstar is Nissan’s inclusion of all the safety systems you’d really need by default. From the factory, they include a forward emergency braking system, a drowsiness warning system, lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning, intelligent pedestrian and cyclist detection systems, and more. Nissan even tossed in an innovative one-box braking system, ensuring that your braking force remains optimal, even if you’re carrying heavy loads. With so much on offer, is the all-new Nissan Interstar the best LCV on offer in the UK today?
