The Urvan is one of Nissan’s longest-running nameplates. That said, it competes directly with some of the category’s staples like the Toyota Hiace.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Where did Nissan launch the 2022 Nissan Urvan?

    The 2022 Nissan Urvan was launched in Japan.
  • How many variants is the Philippine-spec Urvan have?

    The current-generation PH-spec Urvan is currently offered in five variants with prices ranging from P1,440,000 to P1,866,000.
  • Nissan recently gave the Urvan a facelift and was launched on the Japanese domestic market sometime in October of 2021. There’s no word yet when the updated Nissan Urvan will arrive in the Philippine market, but we’re sure many of our readers are excited about it.

    Until then, let’s look at the differences between the new — Japanese-spec — Urvan versus ours, the now old and probably outgoing one.

    Exterior

    Outside, the 2022 Nissan Caravan, as it is called in the Land of the Rising Sun, gets subtle updates. It now has updated headlights flanking a new grille. The Nissan Urvan retains its typical look overall but the new front fascia gives it a more modern appeal.

    The Philippine-spec Urvan, on the other hand, has multi-reflector headlamps with halogen bulbs and integrated turn signal lights flanking its honeycomb grille. Depending on the variant, Filipino Urvan shoppers can get fog lamps to go with the lighting fixture they have at the front end.

    Overall, the new Nissan Urvan looks a lot more polished. But honestly, we kind of like the more aggressive-looking Urvan currently offered by Nissan Philippines.

    Interior

    The new Nissan Urvan sports a flat-bottom D-shaped steering wheel. The higher trims even get a touchscreen infotainment system, climate control, and copper accents on the A/C vents.

    Ours do still look more utilitarian though. It has the traditional three-spoke urethane steering wheel, manual air-conditioning system and either a 2-DIN or a 1-DIN audio head unit.

    Safety

    The new Urvan gets updated safety features in the form of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility which is said to include lane departure warning, intelligent emergency braking, and an intelligent around-view monitor.

    The old Urvan still gets decent safety features with ABS, a high-mount stop lamp, and an anti-theft system.

    The Nissan Urvan is currently offered in the Philippines in five variants with prices ranging from P1.44 million to P1.866 million.
