Like many commercial vehicles today, the Nissan Primastar is another joint venture between Renault and Vauxhall sharing its body and running gear with the Trafic and Vivaro although the Primastar is only available with 2.0 litre 115ps engine with a 6 speed box as standard. Like its twins it is offered in long and short wheelbase, standard and high roof, a crew cab and a minibus variant. Unlike its twins however the Primastar is also offered as one of Nissan’s ‘GOOD TO GO’ Fridge or Freezer conversions which are fully warrantied by Nissan.

Three trim levels are available in E, SE and SE+ with the latter offering a similar spec (although not quite) to the Vivaro’s Sportive and the Trafic’s Sport models.
Payload range from 1000kg to 1200kg for the panel van and load volumes from 5.0m3 for the SWB standard roof to 8.4m3 for the LWB high roof version. Standard options for the entry level E model are basic to say the least and have a mesh bulkhead as standard which increases cabin noise as well as driver vulnerability from heavy flying objects after an emergency stop. Much like the Vivaro and Trafic, the Primastar is a good reliable van although starting to face some stiff competition from some of the new rivals. Discounts tend to be less generous than its twins so you’ll probably pay more for the Primastar than a Vivaro or Trafic. The Chiller/Freezer van is a good ‘off the shelf’ option.
We can "totally" recommend the service received from Paul and Totally Vans.
In addition to the final price being extremely competitive, the entire process was absolutely painless. So much so, made me question why previous vehicle purchases were so laborious!Michael, Claire, Adam and Albi – Commercial Catering Contracts LTD.
I am always a little apprehensive when buying a new vehicle. What is the best model for my needs?, Which is the most appropriate funding solution? Am I getting a good deal? etc. Totally Vans gave me all of the facts and enabled me to make an informed and confident decision. Antony Cockerell - AR18
