Nissan Interstar Luton Review
The Nissan Interstar Luton At A Glance
A versatile, practical solution if you’re looking for a large, heavy van, Nissan’s Interstar Luton remains one of the best options on the market. Featuring three different engine specifications, a range of body styles, load volumes and options, the Nissan Interstar is a comfortable, durable commercial van that is ideal for use in everyday business operations.
Engines and Spec
Powered by a four-cylinder, 16-valve twin-turbo diesel engine developed by Renault, capable of generating increased torque at low revs for improved acceleration at city speeds and higher torque and power at increased motorway speeds, the Nissan Interstar Luton is a long-distance driver’s dream van. This increased flexibility allows for fewer gear changes, reducing driver fatigue and enhancing fuel economy.
The Nissan Interstar Luton offers three different versions of its 2.3-litre dCi diesel Euro 6d-TEMP engine and the choice of both front and rear-driven configurations, making it highly versatile and practical for a range of applications and individuals. Fitted with additional hi-tech features, including cruise control, passenger airbags and Nissan’s MediaNav system, this van is available in three trim levels; ‘Visia’, ‘Acenta’ and ‘Tekna’.

As well as a large, versatile load area, the new Nissan Interstar also offers a spacious, practical and connected cabin capable of becoming your ideal on-the-go office!

With adjustable seating and wheel height, the Nissan Interstellar interior offers side door bins, overhead shelves, cup holders, a chilled glove box and cubby holes and compartments for laptops and sunglasses.
