The Nissan Sylphy Transformation Promo: Celebrating Change

There are brands almost everyone immediately recognizes and Nissan is one of those. If you take the time to ask random individuals you meet on the street, all of them will probably tell you that they or a member of their family either owns a Nissan at present or has owned one in the past. There is definitely no denying the fact that this brand has become a world leader in the automobile industry over the years and they take pride in having held on to their leadership status for years.

Today, Nissan continues to be on a roll, with a continually increasing market share as well as improved customer satisfaction and dealer profitability. This isn’t to say, though, that the company can rest on its laurels. Considering how competitive the world in general has become, they can expect to still have some pretty tough battles to fight. And it does seem like they’re more than ready to take on these battles.

The Nissan Sylphy Transformation Promo: Celebrating Change

Special focus is placed on ensuring that every member of the Nissan family commits to the fulfillment of their mission, which is: “To enrich people’s lives, building trust with our employees, customers, dealers, partners, shareholders, and the world at large.”

A huge part of their effort to enrich people’s lives involves the beefing up of their product line. So you can expect to see some major improvements in their products this year and beyond. One such major improvement is the transformation of the classic Nissan Sentra into the Nissan Sylphy, a better and more exciting version! And in a bid to further build trust with their customers, Nissan Philippines has recently launched a special promo where you could win a brand new Sylphy.

The All-new Nissan Urvan NV350: Comfort at its Finest


With the unveiling of the new NV350 Urvan, Nissan’s commitment to continually modernize their vehicle offering becomes apparent. This fifth-generation van is the latest in a line of cargo haulers that dates all the way back to 1973. With this new model, Nissan aims to serve the needs and meet the stringent demands of shuttle operators, family users, and entrepreneurs. This is why they chose to give the Urvan a total overhaul on both its exterior and interior design. So, how does the NV350 measure up? Let’s find out.


The Exterior

One of the first things you’re bound to notice when you see the Nissan Urvan NV350 is that its halogen lights look more modern. The model also has a bigger bumper and a revamped grill. The side of the vehicle has new character lines, and the exterior mirrors as well as the side windows have been redesigned. The sharper design continues with the vehicle’s rear, which now features distinctive taillights, a chrome emblem, and a sleek bumper. The new Urvan also has a third brake light and 15-inch wheels. Cool, huh?


According to TopGear, the new Urvan’s design is indeed “…an improvement over its predecessor’s aging styling. It has clean lines and a shortened overhang to give it a modern look. The angled strut front grille and the sharply angled halogen headlights contribute to the Urvan’s leaner profile.”


The Interior

The NV350 boasts a 2.5-liter engine, which is similar to one in the NP300 Navara and the most powerful in its class. This means that even when you’re travelling to places like Baguio and Bukidnon with a full load (passengers and cargo), you’ll still enjoy a smooth travel. And you’ll no longer have to turn the air conditioning unit off when you go over mountain passes! The vehicle also has a new shift indicator on its dashboard, letting you know when you need to shift so as not to waste fuel and reduce the stress on the engine.


Comfort is also one of the best things the new NV350 Urvan has to offer. The driver gets to enjoy a sliding and tilting seat as well as tilt-adjustable steering; never has it been this easy to be behind the wheel of a van! Plus, a total of 12 air conditioning vents are evenly distributed throughout the vehicle’s roof line, which means you no longer have to worry about the heat, even when you’re on a long road trip in the middle of summer. The redesigned interior also offers more legroom and elbow room for ultimate comfort.


It certainly looks like the new Nissan NV350 delivers on its promise of serving the needs of shuttle operators, family users (and barkadas), and small businesses that may rely on vans for operations. But perhaps the customer group that gets the best news is the shuttle operators, because Nissan offers a free three-year warranty to any buyer who registers the van as a PUV.

Nissan-PlayStation GT Academy – Year 1 In the Philippines

Calling all motor racing hopefuls. The chance for you to shine in the world of motor racing has come at last. Are you a racing enthusiast? Do you dream of becoming the next Kimi Raikkonen or Sebastian Vettel, riding that scarlet red beast of a machine on a Formula 1 circuit? Or the next Danica Patrick, perhaps? Are you wishing—while playing your favorite racing game on your PlayStation—that you’re inside the cockpit of a 3.5L V6 engine NISSAN 350Z, leaving smoke and black streaks on the tarmac? If you’re quick enough, your dream might just come true.
The NISSAN GT Academy is now in the Philippines. NISSAN, in collaboration with SONY PlayStation and Polyphony Digital, is bringing the race to all the aspiring Filipino racers out there. From Luzon to Mindanao, you will have a chance to learn from the best racing drivers in the industry and compete in an International level. And all you have to do is qualify in the live events that are held in various locations all over the Philippines.

What are the Qualifications for GT Academy in the Philippines?


What started as a pan-European contest has now become a global program for motor racing hopefuls. GT Academy Asia, which includes the Philippines and Japan as participating countries, is bringing the race to you.

Everyone is invited to join the Live Events, which gives you the chance to prove your mettle in a racing simulator using GTA pods. The top 20 fastest lap times in the regional Live Events will then qualify for the next stage of the competition – The National Finals, which will be held in July 2015.

To be eligible to win, participants must be at least 18 years of age, must have a valid driver’s license, must undergo a mandatory health screening for vision and physical fitness, and must have an updated passport. Contestants who have existing, or previously held, competition driving contracts and have previously competed in any national level racing competition are no longer eligible.

GT Academy Live Event Schedules

Live Events for GT Academy in the Philippines are held at the following locations:

Robinsons Bacolod: June 5-7
Centrio Mall Cagayan de Oro: June 5-6
SM Ecoland Davao: June 12-14
SM Cebu: June 11-17

There is no registration fee required! Even children are permitted to have a go. To make thing more exciting, leaderboards are shown during the live events. Those who are waiting for their turn can see the time they need to beat in order to be one of the Top 20.

The top 20 nationwide finalists from the Live Events will have a chance to compete in the National Finals, where their driving skills and mental toughness will truly be tested. The top 6 finalists will then proceed to the next level of the competition, held at the Silverstone Racing Circuit in the UK, where they will be tested alongside other GT Academy Asian finalists for their mental toughness, physical agility, and of course their racing skills.
