From inside and out, the Nissan Urvan Premium steps up the van game
We Filipinos love traveling. Whether it's taking the balikbayan for a night out in the city or bringing the extended family to the province, we pack as much people, and cargo, when we hit the road. It's no surprise then that vans are a popular choice here.
Perhaps one can say that the van has become part of local culture. Given our family-oriented culture, these haulers fit our way of life quite well. Simply put, the van suits the family's need and have practically become the backbone of large families, businesses and communities.
The formula for a van sounds simple enough: It should seat at least ten, offers stacks of space for luggage and come with robust mechanicals. But while the basics have stayed the same, the van has also evolved into a plush riding experience. There is now a greater emphasis on comfort, as well as new and ingenious ways to carry more than ten people as safely as possible. Needless to say, the modern van is more than just a people carrier.
For starters, gone are the days of fixed bench seats that proved uncomfortable on long trips. These days, one can get individual reclining seats in a van, just like the ones found in the Nissan Urvan Premium. In Nissan's newest van, there are fifteen of these seats, offering more comfort to its occupants when out on the road. These aren't just rudimentary seats either with stacks of padding for added support. Also, these seats are finished in high-quality fabrics that are also toughened for the long haul. Of course, getting to these seats are just as important and one no longer has to fumble around with jump seats to get to the next row thanks to the center aisle.
That said, the modern van isn't just about seats. It has to provide a comfortable journey as the kilometers pile on. Remember the days of long trips crammed inside a van with weak air-conditioning? For those who grew up with such vans, the Nissan Urvan Premium banishes those memories by providing individual air-conditioning vents for all passengers. No one has to argue about who gets which vent anymore. Plus, you can expect it to be cold given Nissan's solid reputation for air-conditioning.
As for space, there's acres of it inside thanks to the wider body and high roof. One can stand up when walking through center aisle which allows easier access from one row to another. Plus it makes ease of entry and exit much more convenient. Speaking of ease of entry, the Urvan Premium's low step in height makes it easy to get on board for both children and adults. There's no need to slam the sliding door either as the Urvan Premium is equipped with a sliding door closure assist.
While a van is, in essence, a box on wheels, that doesn't mean it can't have style. With wider bodies and much taller roofs, vans these days come with much more presence and it can be seen in the Urvan Premium. There's style on the inside too thanks to the beige interior, further enhancing the feeling of spaciousness inside. Simply put, the van of today can shuttle you in style and maximum comfort
The modern van is a far cry from the vans of the past. No longer do you have to deal with cramped quarters and a hot cabin just to get to your destination. The Nissan Urvan Premium exemplifies what a modern van should be: comfortable, commodious and capable. Thanks to its generous seating, creature comforts and the luxury of space, the Nissan Urvan Premium goes beyond what is expected from a van. It proves to be great value too as it offers full-size van capacity at mid-size van prices.
If transporting people is your trade or you regularly take the extended family out for a road trip, it's difficult to find a more comfortable way to carry fifteen passengers for less. Nissan's newest van takes the idea of a van to a new level by adding a touch of class for their workhorse. Premium, retains all that is needed from a van which is room for both people and cargo.
