One of its main highlights is the Door Closure Assist feature that allows passengers to open and close the sliding passenger door at the pace they want it to happen, while it takes care of the firm closing of the vehicle without exerting too much effort.
It is powered by the same 2.5L turbo diesel engine that is at the heart of the Nissan Navara, ensuring the abundance of torque available to make sure that it can take its passengers to where they want to be with utmost comfort.
The Nissan Urvan Premium is the offers warranty coverage for business use, allowing customers to have their vehicle serviced for the first 3 years, or 100,000 kms whichever comes first, at no additional cost.
