To Any Point of the Country

Getting to your destination, yes, it can be, with a total of 15 passengers. The 2017 Nissan NV350 Urvan comes in 3 seat versions, the 15-seater (as tested), the 18-seater and the 3-seater cargo that could be customize. Seated at the helm of the driver seat with proper seat position, long distance driving could be stress-free and the rear passenger seats are typical to commuter vans with budget fare. The dual air-conditioning system with rear wall to wall air vents could definitely cool the cabin. The steering wheel diameter was the right size for quick maneuvers and the feel of the grip was relaxing. The illumination emitted from the instrument cluster with drive computer can definitely keep the driver awake and informed with glow adjustment. The 5-speed dash mounted shifter was ideally located on the dashboard and it was easy to reach and to shift. The manually rotating window riser can also help the driver exercise his left arm or the front passenger’s right arm with the central locking as an option; locking and unlocking all 5 doors could only be done one by one.
The 2017 Nissan NV350 Urvan has a power plant of a 2488cc (YD25) 4 inline CRDI (common rail direct injection) VGS turbo-charged diesel engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission that could produce a maximum power of 129ps/3200rpm and a maximum torque of 356Nm/1400-2000rpm. Being a de-tuned Navara engine, it could definitely deliver high torque for more pushing power even with a full load. Having a non-ABS front ventilated disc brakes and rear drum brakes together with the 15” steel rim with full cover mounted on 195/80 15LT tires can put this van to a halt on a straight line. The 65 liters fuel tank capacity was ideal for long road trips, thus avoiding frequent reloading in petrol stations. The 2555mm wheel base and 190mm minimum ground clearance contributes to the ride comfort (on a full load). Even with a length of 4695mm, width of 1695mm and height of 1990mm the Nissan NV350 Urvan (when you get used to it) was easy to maneuver with a minimum turning radius of 5.2mm even at U-turn slots with the proper technique and angle approach. Driving at night the multi-reflector type headlamps emit good density even on a downpour but having fog lamps would be a great help. During reverse parking even with a rear mirror mounted on the tailgate, bumper mounted rear parking sensors would be ideal, especially in vehicles with dark tinted window glass. The 2017 Nissan NV350 Urvan is available in two colors, white or silver and two-tone colors as optional, while prices start at SRP Php 1,221,000. Inspect for yourself and even request a test drive or ride, the Nissan NV350 Urvan in the Nissan dealer nearest you.
