Nissan enters emerging North American compact cargo van segment with bold new "right size" NV200 design
Offers efficient packaging with a large 122.7 cubic foot cargo space within a small overall exterior footprint
Combines innovative ease-of-use features and smart design while minimizing cost of ownership - including the lowest starting MSRP* in segment of $19,990 USD and best-in-class** 24 mpg combined fuel economy (City / Highway)
On sale April 2013 at 300-plus Nissan Commercial Vehicle dealers nationwide
CHICAGO - The all-new 2013 Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo Van adds a new dimension to the Nissan Commercial Vehicle lineup - compact. More than 4.5 feet shorter in length and 2.5 feet lower in height compared to the Nissan NV 2500/3500 High Roof Cargo Van, the new NV200 is designed to be the "right size" for a growing number of small business owners and fleet operators wanting smaller, more efficient work vans. It is also ideal for business owners coming from passenger vehicles, thanks to the NV200's cargo size optimization and functionality.
Joe Castelli, vice president, Nissan Commercial Vehicles and Fleet said: "For many years businesses have bought large vans simply because that's what was available. The 2013 Nissan NV200 offers a great new alternative - a commercial quality vehicle that optimizes cargo space while offering the best possible fuel economy and an affordable price. We"re now able to offer vehicles for nearly every business need, the compact NV200, the full-size NV 1500/2500/3500 Cargo Standard Roof, the 4-row/12-person NV 3500 Passenger and the extra-large NV 2500/3500 Cargo High Roof."
Maximizing Cargo Efficiency
Built on Nissan's proven compact commercial platform, the NV200 offers high cargo volume capacity in a small exterior package. Unique for North America, the NV200 body has been extended 7.9 inches versus the models sold in other global markets.
This longer body length offers additional cargo carrying capability for North American customers.
The combination of a 115.2-inch wheelbase with a 186.3-inch overall length, along with a compact drivetrain and rear suspension, provides an 82.8-inch cargo length, 54.8-inch cargo width (48.0 inches between the wheelwells) and 53.0-inch cargo area height. Along with its low cargo floor height (19.5 inches) and tall roofline, the NV200 a large cargo capacity of 122.7 cubic feet. Payload is estimated at 1,500 pounds (S model).
Said Castelli: "As the next 'innovation for business," the new NV200 is designed to be highly maneuverable in traffic or when negotiating city parking spaces, with a 36.7-foot curb-to-curb turning diameter. Yet it is every inch a business workhorse with its wide-opening doors and its ability to carry standard U.S. 40x48-inch pallets enhancing its exceptional utility."
The tall rear French doors are a 40/60-split design, with the 60-percent side on the right (curb) side for easy access from a sidewalk. The 40-percent left side door is shorter, reducing its potential intrusion into the street when open, helping lower the risk of accidents due to passing vehicles. Both rear doors feature dual opening positions of 90潞 and 180潞. The standard sliding side doors are designed for low effort. All doors are solid (no windows) to accommodate advertising or business signage, with available privacy door glass.
Added commercial flexibility is provided by the standard integrated mounting points, which allow installation of racks and shelves without drilling into the sidewalls, and six available floor mounted cargo hooks in the cargo area.
The new NV200's exterior design features a Nissan signature front grille, aerodynamic front-end design and functional cabin design. Other exterior features include halogen headlights, durable black front and rear bumpers and outside mirrors with wide-angle spotter mirrors and available heated function. Body-colored bumpers, door handles and outside mirrors are also offered. A selection of five exterior colors is offered: Blue Onyx, Brilliant Silver, Super Black, Red Brick and Fresh Powder.
A Driver-Focused Cockpit

The engine is matched with a responsive and efficient Xtronic CVT #174; transmission. Fuel economy is rated at 24 mpg City, 25 mpg Highway and 24 mpg Combined.
The NV200 suspension utilizes independent struts and stabilizer bar in front and a leaf spring design in the rear. Front disc/rear drum brakes with Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist are standard, along with electric power-assisted steering and 15-inch steel wheels mounted with 185/60R15 high-load all-season tires.
Two Well-Equipped Models
The 2013 Nissan NV200 is available in two well-equipped models, NV200 S and NV200 SV in a choice of five exterior colors, matched with a gray cloth interior.
In addition to the long list of standard features on the NV200 S, the SV model adds power heated outside mirrors, power door locks with auto-locking feature, remote keyless entry with two key fobs, cruise control with steering wheel-mounted controls, additional 12V power point in the rear of the center console, six floor-mounted cargo hooks in the cargo area and full wheel covers.

The Technology Package includes the NissanConnect? with Navigation system, RearView Monitor and SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately).
Said Castelli: "Built into the NV200 from the earliest planning, is low total cost of ownership. The 2013 Nissan NV200 offers a competitive price, excellent fuel efficiency and reduced upfitting costs due to the standard integrated mounting points, all of which will provide business owners with a low total cost of ownership."
A Global Award Winner
While new to North America, the Nissan NV200 compact van is in use in more than 40 countries around the world, receiving acclaim from both users and media alike for its optimal functionality and smart design. It won the 2010 International Van of the Year award in Europe, the 2010 Commercial Delivery Van (CDV) of the Year in China, and the 2011 Universal Design Award from Universal Design GMbH, a German organization dedicated to promoting the convergence of design and the emerging importance of customer needs. NV200 has also established a presence as the strong segment leader in Japan with a wide-ranging lineup that includes a taxi version - and will soon be seen on the streets of New York City as the designated taxi design.
"Our global success provides a great foundation for the North American version, which we know will become an essential tool for business," concluded Castelli.
The new Nissan NV200 will be assembled in Cuernavaca, Mexico and available through a select network of certified Nissan Commercial Vehicle dealers nationwide.

2013 Aston Martin Rapide S #12304;Video #12305;
Aston Martin has released the first official video for the new 2013 Rapide S.
The new exterior pack adds carbon fiber to six surfaces, including the center section of the new front splitter, all formed and fitted by hand. A jewel-like side-strake machined from aluminum sculpts the side of the car whilst each bonnet louvre is cast individually from high-density zinc.
The new Aston Martin Rapide S receives power from an even stronger engine, the new AM11 V12. The naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V12 unit is capable of developing great power. To be more precise, the output reaches 550 BHP and 457 lb. ft. of torque. This power enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mpg in 4.7 seconds and to reach a top speed of 190 mph. When it comes to European CO2 emissions, the model can reach 332 g/km in comparison to the current model that emits 355 g/km. On a combined cycle, the fuel economy reaches 19.9 mpg.
A new piano black interior pack adds a big dash of the grand to the new Rapide #8217;s interior, with the dark mirror finish featuring across the dashboard facia, transmission tunnel centre plate and door handles. There #8217;s plenty of soft, sculpted leather liberally adorning the four separate seats, as well as a twin screen rear seat entertainment system with wireless headphones, remote control and six-disc DVD changer.
Press Release
Rapide S is the most powerful four-door Aston Martin to date
- Peak output jumps 17% as new 6.0-litre V12 engine produces 558 PS
- More assertive new look emphasises Rapide S #8217; sports car character
The stunning new Aston Martin Rapide S is making its debut with yet more luxury and yet more power on offer in its quintessentially elegant four-door silhouette.
The iconic British car maker #8217;s new luxury GT has been sympathetically redesigned and painstakingly re-engineered to reassert its position as the world #8217;s most beautiful, and beautifully balanced, four-seat sports car.
Aside from the extensive design and engineering improvements, the luxurious new Rapide S #8211; which replaces the outgoing Rapide in markets worldwide #8211; is now even more refined thanks to a range of additions to the four-seater #8217;s sumptuous interior.
Still instantly recognisable as an Aston Martin, of course, the new Rapide S now boasts an imposing and assertive new #8216;face #8217;, created by virtue of the impressive and striking new full grille.
Imbuing the new car with an even more sporting, forceful demeanour, the revised front end design is matched at the back by a striking new rear deck profile which includes a more pronounced boot lid #8216;flip #8217;. The aerodynamic and aesthetic upgrades both reinforce the sporting nature of new Rapide S and work to counteract lift at higher speeds.
Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Dr Ulrich Bez said: #8220;The Rapide S is to me, without doubt, the most beautiful four-door sports car on the market today. This is, very clearly, the power of luxury in action.
#8220;The car #8217;s stunning visual appeal is now matched by a much more powerful and yet more efficient engine #8211; our exceptional new AM11 V12 #8211; which increases massively both the excitement and performance potential of the Rapide S.
#8220;It is a four-door sports car that uniquely combines luxury, style and sporting excitement in Aston Martin #8217;s most flexible and accommodating silhouette. Purity of proportion and exceptional elegance are mixed with truly sensational dynamic performance #8211; this is the four-door sports car in its most versatile form and I am sure our customers around the world are going to love it! #8221;
Engineered to excel
Changes under the new Rapide #8217;s skin are comprehensive, with a version of the new AM11 naturally-aspirated 6.0-litre V12 powerplant delivering unprecedented power and improved in-gear acceleration.
Power from the new engine jumps significantly versus that of its predecessor: up by 17% or a massive 81 PS from 477 PS at 6,000 rpm to a now very substantial 558 PS at 6,750 rpm.
Peak torque increases, too, up from 600 Nm to 620 Nm at 5,000 rpm. Meanwhile an even more marked improvement in torque occurs lower down the rev range, as pulling power rises by more than 40 Nm between idle and 4,000 rpm with an additional 50 Nm available at 2,500 rpm.
Naturally, increases in power and torque lead to even swifter performance as befits a four-door sports car. New Rapide S shaves 0.3 seconds off its 0-62 mph time, which drops from the 5.2 seconds of the current car to just 4.9 seconds for the new model. Top speed climbs, meanwhile, to 190 mph.
The 5,935 cc naturally aspirated V12 boasts race car technology #8211; developments derived directly from Aston Martin Racing #8217;s successful WEC GT campaign #8211; to maximise both performance and efficiency. The new AM11 engine thus boasts fully CNC machined combustion chambers and lighter, hollow, cam shafts.
Dual variable camshaft timing, knock sensing, even the fully catalysed stainless steel exhaust system #8211; these are all engineering advances developed to preserve the V12 #8217;s position as a mainstay of the Aston Martin range.
The engine is now even more efficient, too. Despite the very significant increase in peak power and torque, the Rapide S is appreciably more economical than before. CO2 emissions drop by seven per cent #8211; from 355 g/km to 332 g/km #8211; while fuel economy now stands at 19.9 mpg on the official EU combined cycle.
A product of the latest generation of Aston Martin #8217;s world-renowned VH engineering philosophy, which debuted in 2003, the new car of course benefits from many elements of the current Gen4 VH architecture.
The carefully conceived engineering changes continue as the new Rapide now offers even sharper agility and even quicker responses to driver input. The new AM11 engine #8211; a key Gen4 component #8211; has been lowered by 19 mm versus the position of the powerplant in the previous car, with a corresponding reduction in the sports car #8217;s centre of gravity.
The changes also lead to a tangible improvement in front end turn-in #8211; no mean feat for a car that was already acknowledged as a leader in dynamic performance.
Aston Martin engineers at the company #8217;s global HQ in Gaydon have worked to revise the car #8217;s dynamic stability control (DSC) in line with its significant increases in both power and torque.
As befits the more sporting nature of new Rapide S the car benefits from the latest Gen4 iteration of Aston Martin #8217;s hi-tech Adaptive Damping System (ADS). The system now offers three distinct settings: #8216;Normal #8217;, #8216;Sport #8217; and #8216;Track #8217;, with the character of each being tailored to the nature of Rapide S.
The ADS automatically alters the suspension settings to ensure the driver has high levels of control at all times, with the ability to respond quickly to different driving conditions. The different damping modes help to significantly broaden the character of the Rapide S, adapting its set-up to suit the driver #8217;s precise requirements. Thus it can be a luxurious GT car in Normal mode with the capacity to morph into a more assertive sports car in Sport and Track modes.
The damper settings are determined by an electronic control unit which takes sensor readings from the car #8217;s systems, including throttle position, brake position, steering wheel rotation and vehicle speed. This data establishes the prevailing driving conditions and the demands the driver is making on the car.
Head of Product Development at Aston Martin, Ian Minards, explains: #8220;Growing the power in a luxury sports car is all very well, but maximising control and #8216;usability #8217; of that increased power is, just as much, the engineers #8217; challenge.
#8220;Balance, poise and control are the keys to a successful sports car and the dynamic improvements we have made with Rapide S showcase our efforts to make this not just the most beautiful, but also the most beautifully balanced, car in its class. #8221;
He added: #8220;Transmission calibration, ADS refinement, braking capability and engine output optimisation are among the many #8216;ingredients #8217; which the team here at Gaydon have used to create a sports car of unerring quality and excitement. #8221;
Meanwhile, as with the new DB9, the new Rapide S achieves compliance with the latest European pedestrian protection regulations courtesy of its innovative new front grille design.
The lowered engine, new bonnet, new front bumper construction and new grille combine to deliver a uniquely innovative approach to pedestrian impact protection.
The patent-pending design #8211; which features a unique #8216;keystone #8217; construction #8211; enables the grille to move rearwards on impact, whilst the central and outboard chin stiffeners give rigidity to the lower structure and support achievement of the leg impact regulations. Cut-outs on the front wing catwalks contribute to the achievement of the headform regulation.
The solution means Aston Martin can remain true to its design ethos, and avoid the use of plastic grilles and nose cone bumpers that stretch up in front of the bonnet.

As luxurious as it is thrilling, the new car now boasts a host of new luxury- or sports-orientated options, allowing buyers to more precisely tailor the car to their specific style.
The new optional Carbon Exterior Pack, for instance, immediately dials up the Rapide #8217;s sporting attitude. Front splitter, rear diffuser, mirror caps and rear lamp infills all fashioned from carbon fibre clearly signal the sporting nature of this 558 PS four-seater.
More pronounced luxury, on the other hand, comes from the new piano black interior pack that adds a deep, rich, mirror-like shine to the facia, transmission tunnel centre plate and door handles of the Rapide S. A darker surround in the instrument binnacle and steering wheel with black horn-push surround round off the pack #8217;s sumptuous additions. Luxurious blend headlinings in either tan or grey emphasise the luxury still further inside.
As would be expected of a modern Aston Martin, handcrafting is the order of the day in the Rapide S with the standard-fit pure glass transmission selector switches in the centre console one small yet important example of the truly authentic, bespoke, nature of the car #8217;s cabin.
However those with a desire for a more sporting ambience in their sports car will not be disappointed. Optional duotone perforated red and black leather makes its Aston Martin debut here #8211; delivering a captivating visual combination that #8217;s unique to the new Rapide S.
Luxury is enhanced by the removal of extraneous #8216;noise #8217; and the enhancement of desirable #8216;sound #8217; #8211; a fine distinction but one that helps the new car deliver an aural experience like no other. Improved NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) characteristics are derived from the likes of the new bonnet lining and revised windscreen cowl.
Flexibility comes in the form of four seats #8211; the rearmost two capable of accommodating adults in a uniquely sporting setting #8211; while at the touch of a button the individual back seats fold down to almost triple the Aston Martin #8217;s load space.
Options to further enhance the luxurious look and feel of the Rapide S include, subject to market, a reversing camera and twin screen rear seat entertainment system with wireless headphones, remote control and six-disc DVD changer.
Those seeking the ultimate in luxury and personalisation can also consider the #8216;Q by Aston Martin #8217; service which offers uniquely-tailored options for individualisation. The Q service focuses on fashioning colour and materials with limitless boundaries precisely to customer choice and specification, enabling owners to give free rein to the creativity and indulge their desire for bespoke luxury.
The new Aston Martin Rapide S will be available to order through the brand #8217;s 146 dealers worldwide next month with prices confirmed closer to the on-sale date.

2014 Subaru Forester priced #12304;Video #12305;
Subaru released official pricing for that its all-new 2014 Forester. The new Forester made its debut at the 2012 Los Angeles auto show back in November. But we had the opportunity to drive a pre-production model at Subaru's test facility before the show.
Standard all-wheel drive returns for 2014. Powering the base Forester is last year's 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder teamed to a six-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission. Subaru estimates the 2.5-liter should see 24/32 mpg city/ highway, up from the 2013 model's EPA rating of 21/27 mpg. The automaker says the new compact leads the segment in all-wheel-drive fuel economy.
When the 2014 Subaru Forester goes on sale in the spring, a base 2.5i model will start at $22,820 #8211; up $730 from the previous model #8217;s $22,090 base price. Prices range all the way up to $33,820 for the top-line turbocharged Forester 2.0XT Touring model.
Press Release
- Pricing for the popular Subaru Forester starts at $21,995
- All-wheel drive Forester priced below competitive front-wheel drive vehicles
- 2014 Forester also available with new Subaru Eyesight and STARLINK technology
Cherry Hill, N.J., - Subaru of America, Inc. today announced pricing for the all-new 2014 Forester. The 2014 Forester 2.5i model will be available in base, Premium, Limited and top-line Touring versions.

The turbocharged Forester 2.0XT will be offered in the Premium and Touring versions, with the Premium trim offered at $27,995. These prices all reflect MSRP before the $825 destination charge.
As with all previous Forester models, the 2014 version comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a distinction from competitive models that come with front-wheel drive as standard and offer all-wheel drive as an extra-cost option. The 2014 Forester will lead the segment in all-wheel drive fuel economy, with the 2.5i model achieving manufacturer's fuel economy estimates of 24 mpg city / 32 mpg highway / 27 mpg combined. Those figures also compare well with competitors that feature front-wheel drive.

High-line 2014 Forester models equipped with the CVT also feature new Hill Descent Control and a new X-Mode control feature, which provides extra control in certain driving conditions. Other new amenities and conveniences include rear vision camera, color multi-function display, power rear gate with automatic close and Keyless Access and Start. The available navigation system features smartphone integration with the driver-friendly Aha #174; audio application. The top-line Touring models come standard with a navigation system and 440-watt harman/kardon #174; audio system.
The new Subaru Forester will build on the sales success of the previous generation, which helped the Subaru brand to achieve four consecutive annual sales records. The 2014 Forester is expected to sell in even greater numbers than the outgoing model.
