5 Reasons Why the Nissan NV350 Urvan Premium is a Solid Choice

  1. The Price


Like any other purchase, a buyer’s biggest concern is the price. For a van like the Urvan Premium, you are essentially getting the best value for your money. At about PHP 1.6 million, the Nissan Urvan Premium offers a lot more than its competitors in every aspect, from the performance and fuel-efficiency to cockpit/cabin features and cosmetics.


  1. The Capacity and Performance


The word “capacity” can mean a lot of things when you’re talking about a machine or a vehicle. In terms of passenger capacity, the Urvan Premium is more than capable of transporting up to 15 people in its spacious cabin. This 15-seater van manages to maintain comfort and luxury even when it’s at full capacity.


Likewise, the Urvan Premium doesn’t fall short in terms of power and performance capacity. It boasts of a 4-cylinder, 2.5 liter engine with a 5-speed dash-mounted manual transmission. The Urvan Premium is rear-wheel drive with a maximum horsepower of around 129 hp at 3200 rpm. Max torque is 356 Nm at 2000 rpm. In short, the van has more than enough power to safely transport 15 passengers to any destination in no time.


  1. The Interior and Exterior Design


The Nissan NV350 Urvan is designed to have flexibility so that it can deliver the most practical options to match your needs. The Premium variant follows the same mold, when it comes to providing different options to suit the needs of its future owners.


The interior of the Urvan Premium is designed to exude luxury and comfort. The dash components are arranged so that it provides ease and efficiency. The seats are well-crafted and appropriately positioned to provide maximum comfort. Combined with the air conditioning and the remarkable legroom, the interior of the Urvan Premium is meant to give passengers a relaxing ride.

The engineers at Nissan spared no expense in designing the exterior of the new Urvan Premium. The sleek lines, the trademark V-motion front grille, the fine-looking headlights, and the wider and taller dimensions give the Urvan Premium a more elegant and stylish appearance, which is way better than its closest competitors.


  1. The Excellent Features


When it comes to family-type vehicles like station wagons and vans, consumers often look at two distinct features—safety and way-of-life features. The Urvan Premium scores high on both regard, without question.

The air conditioning system, with its 12 individual rear vents, the entertainment system, and other quality-of-life features are exceptional. The safety features, from the airbags to the individual seatbelts and electronic door locks—this van is truly worth the investment.


  1. The Manufacturing Brand


Nissan is a reputable car manufacturer that has earned the trust of many consumers. They’ve been manufacturing all kinds of machines for decades, from trucks to sedans, and two of the underlying traits of all their products are quality and efficiency. You can never go wrong when you invest in a Nissan.

2017 Nissan GT-R: Godzilla Has Arrived!

Nissan has always prided itself in innovation, and in recent years, they have indeed shown that they are serious in improving their vehicles and introducing new things to their target market. If you’ve been paying attention, then you would have noticed how the company has been launching one new vehicle (or a new version of an existing model) after another during these past few years. Well, it certainly looks like they have no plans of stopping.


A Showstopper at PIMS 2016

During the 2016 Philippine International Motoring Show (PIMS), Nissan Philippines showcased the 2017 Nissan GT-R, which is given a well-deserved “Godzilla” moniker. The design and engineering of the vehicle definitely makes it a monster of a car. And while this model has been around for some time, this is the first time it is actually introduced to the Philippine market. So, Filipino car and racing enthusiasts, rejoice! Godzilla is here!

The estimated price: A hefty PHP 7.35 million.

Is it worth that price? Let’s see…

The Look


The new GT-R is not designed according to the demands of aerodynamics. Rather, it is designed to sculpt the air according to its needs. The makers extended that car’s rear fascia at the sides so that air is pushed away from the back of the bumper, thereby helping cool the exhaust. The side skirts and C-Pillar have also been redesigned and refined so as to keep air away from the underside of the vehicle and reduce turbulence.


Furthermore, there are larger grille openings at the front to let more cool air enter key components of the vehicle. And the new shape of the front fascia directs the air in such a way that drag is significantly reduced. When you drive this vehicle, you really need to be prepared for the attention it is sure to draw.

And as the onlookers marvel at the car’s amazing exterior, you will be sure to fall in love with its equally breathtaking interior. It has semi-aniline leather appointments on the door panels, center console, the shift lever, and the seats. You will also notice that the attention to detail where the air vents and switches are concerned is almost obsessive.


The Engine

Who wouldn’t appreciate the fact that every single GT-R engine (a 570-horsepower, 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 engine) is hand-assembled by one of five master craftsmen and carries the name and signature of that craftsman on a plaque? These craftsmen are known as Takumi, and true to the spirit of the Takumi, they think of the mind, body, and spirit of those who will someday use their products while they are creating said product. This is the part of Japanese tradition that injects humanity in the Nissan GT-R.

It is also worth noting that the engines are assembled in a clean room that’s dust-free and temperature-controlled, much like the clean rooms used for assembling Formula One racing engines. Top development drivers were then brought together to test the vehicle and make sure that when it is finally launched, it will excel in any track, regardless of the weather, and no matter what level the driver is.

The engine and transmission were repositioned farther back so as to lessen the weight at the front of the car. This is said to have a notably positive effect on the handling, cooling, barking, and traction of the car. The car also features an electronically-controlled all-wheel drive system, which maximizes the driver’s control over the car by evenly distributing power among the four wheels; the driver may also send all power to the rear wheels to get more of a racecar feel.

The new Nissan GT-R is indeed a pricey toy for the big boys. What it means to sports car enthusiasts is perhaps equivalent to what the latest iPhone means to the gadget-crazy. The answer to the question of whether it is worth its hefty price tag depends on how much of a sports car addict you are. For the average car buyer, it probably isn’t worth the time. But for the true enthusiast, it certainly is worth a closer look.

It is definitely a standout when it comes to design, and the technology of the 2017 GT-R isn’t something to scoff at, either. If you’re interested in giving it a closer look and perhaps adding it to your car collection, you’d want to find the nearest Autohub Group because their Nissan dealership is the exclusive GT-R badge representative in the country. The vehicle is available in Gun Metallic, Katsura Orange, Pearl Blue, Pearl White, Ultimate Silver, and Vibrant Red.
