2016 Chevrolet City Express Overview

Contributing Editor - April 8, 2016

Several front-wheel-drive compact vans have hit the market in recent years, including the Ford Transit Connect and Nissan NV200. They’re developed for buyers who would appreciate the cargo space and versatility of a large, typically rear-drive commercial van, but are put off by the bulk and weight of such a vehicle. A growing number of urban dwellers and small-business owners seem to be heading in that direction nowadays, opting for the easy maneuverability of a compact. They’re also attracted by the compact van’s better gas mileage.

What's New for 2016

All-new for 2015, the City Express is unchanged for the 2016 model year. Chevrolet’s City Express is actually a near-twin of the Nissan NV200, with seating only for the driver and a single passenger.

Choosing Your Chevrolet City Express

The City Express comes in two trim levels: LS and LT. Both use a 2-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 131 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque, coupled to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Fuel economy is estimated at 24 mpg in city driving and 26 mpg on the highway. Not many vehicles get almost the same gas mileage in both types of driving.

Payload capacity is rated at 1,500 pounds. Cargo space totals 122.7 cubic feet, measuring 82 inches between the front seats and the rear doors, and 54 inches between the side walls. The fold-down passenger seat can convert into a work table. Center console storage includes a file folder bin. Six airbags are standard.

All City Express vans have front-wheel drive. The turning circle is 36.7 feet. The two trim levels differ mainly by content levels and available options.


Priced at $21,955 (plus $995 destination charge), the basic LS model rides on 15-inch steel wheels and has two sliding doors as well as solid, 40/60-split rear cargo doors. Standard equipment includes cloth upholstery, vinyl floor covering, power windows, roof rails, rear steps, manual air conditioning, a 12-volt power outlet, armrests, and two-speaker audio. Six floor-mounted D-rings are installed in the cargo area, which also has 20 cargo-mounting points.

Options include a $355 Appearance Package with full wheel covers, a chrome grille, and body-color trim. Also available are Bluetooth, tinted rear glass windows, cruise control, and rear parking sensors.


Additional creature comforts go into the LT edition, priced $1,560 higher than the LS. They include Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity, power door locks, remote keyless entry, cruise control, and rear parking sensors. Power heated side mirrors also are standard. Fifteen-inch alloy wheels are optional, as are tinted glass and the Appearance Package. An available Technology Package adds navigation, as well as USB input, SiriusXM satellite radio, smartphone integration, a 5.8-inch touchscreen, and a backup camera.

CarsDirect Tip

Because the monetary difference between the two trim levels isn’t all that great, it might be prudent to select an LT, rather than add options to the base LS model. Foremost competition for the City Express comes from the nearly-identical Nissan NV200, so it makes sense to cross-shop both models before deciding.
