New Nissan Nissan NT400 Cabstar

The Nissan NT400 Cabstar is a forward-control vehicle with the cab mounted directly above the engine. This arrangement maximises the load area and makes the Cabstar extremely versatile; it has a high payload and can be easily adapted with a wide range of body styles. This truck also has a very compact chassis, so the Cabstar is easy to manoeuvre around the city.


Nissan equips all Cabstar models with daytime running lights and front fog lamps as standard to enhance visibility in all conditions. Behind the forward-mounted cab is a large, flat load-bed which can be specified with a wide range of specialist body options. Due to the Cabstar’s structure it has a much higher carrying capacity than a van with a conventional cabin. Buyers have a choice of three wheelbase lengths: 2.5 metres, 2.9 metres and 3.4 metres. There are tipper, dropside and box body options which allow you to adapt the Cabstar to meet your business needs.

There is a three-seat single cab and a six-seat double cab on offer. Both cabs provide a comfortable and spacious working environment with plenty of functional storage compartments, including chilled cup holders and a chilled glovebox, a foldaway clipboard tray and overhead lockers. The interior is appointed with a radio and CD player along with Bluetooth® connectivity that enables you to use your phone hands-free. The model with a medium wheelbase offers luxuries such as heated seats, and the long wheelbase model also has a premium cloth trim.

Performance and efficiency

The cab is mounted right at the front of the chassis, and this structure means that you get great visibility from the driving seat. This model has an impressively tight turning circle, making it ideal for negotiating tight urban roads. All engines in the range are diesel units. You can choose a 2.5-litre unit with either 121bhp or 136bhp and a 3.0-litre engine with 150bhp. Each one complies with Euro 5 emissions guidelines, and is paired with either a five or six-speed manual gearbox.

Safety and technology

The Nissan NT400 Cabstar is equipped a range of safety features which work hard to protect you. Vehicle Dynamic Control and a Traction Control System come as standard on all models and the Cabstar’s brakes are specified with Anti-lock Braking System and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution. These active safety systems help to avoid collisions by giving you greater control over the vehicle in challenging situations. In the event of an accident, the reinforced cabin structure forms a protective cell around all occupants. The front and rear bumpers are also fitted with shock absorbers to reduce the force of impact. Driver and passenger airbags are optional on all models.
