City-friendly road manners; strong fuel economy for a cargo van; reasonable pricing
Very few style tweaks distinguish it from the NV200; a little smaller inside than it needs to be; pretty sparse on technology and driver-assist features
The City Express gains power locks and remote entry as standard equipment. A revised 1LS package now requires those wanting Bluetooth to also spring for cruise control and rear-park assist. Hill-start assist is available this year, as is a new Security Package that adds over cargo glass windows for greater privacy. See the 2017 Chevrolet City Express models for sale near you
The City Express LT is our pick of the lineup. For only a little more money than the base-level LS model, it offers several important convenience features such as Bluetooth and cruise control. It also comes standard with park assist, which is always a feature that's highly appreciated by anyone who's spent time behind the wheel of a cargo van. Find a Chevrolet City Express for sale
The 2017 Chevrolet City Express is offered in two trim levels: the base-level LS and the upscale LT.
The City Express LS ($23,400) includes only the basics. It has traction control, for example, and anti-lock brakes, power locks and keyless entry, but you won't get power mirrors. Other standard features include air conditioning, power windows, vinyl floor covering, 6 D-ring cargo hooks in back, side airbags and a 2-speaker sound system.
Given the small price jump to the LT ($24,510), you won't find too many additional features in the higher trim level. It does add a few more convenience items, however, such as cruise control, power adjustable heated side mirrors, Bluetooth and rear park assist.
The City Express also includes a range of options, including deep-tinted rear glass, a navigation system, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, a USB port for music and a backup camera.
