    siyempre Urvan, malamig ang aircon, timing chain pa, kung tibay ang pag-uusapan nasa nag-aalaga yan.

    The Urvan is more proven in this sector... Is this the Urvan Escapade or Urvan Estate? The Hiace Commuter has the newer body design but it's just oh-so-bare and uncomfy for passengers.

    nasakyan ko na both urvan and hi ace commuter. yan kasi mga gamit namin pag mag hospital duty kami..

    kung sa lamig ng aircon, URVAN wins the aircon..
    kung sa space, HI ACE..
    sa suspension, URVAN.. grabe kc yung hi ace. sa likod ako umupo at matagtag ang ride sa likod di gaya ng URVAN na magnda ang suspension system..

    comfort.. syempre urvan kasi mas malamig at hindi pa kasing tagtag ng hi ace.. pero both sila ay sagad sa tuhod ang space pag nakaupo..

    yung quality pa ng materials sa hi ace ay ang cheap di kagaya ng sa urvan.ok na ok.. lalo na kapag escapade na urvan, ok ang loob..

    nga pala, both ay NEW unit low end na hiace at low end na urvan na nasakyan ko dahil puro bago VAN sa skul namin..


    all i can say, if u want "space only" go for hi ace. but if you want comfort and space (kaunti lang diperensya ng space sa hi ace) URVAN na..

    for me URVAN wins...

    i had an urvan escape before and 2 hiace commuter now.

    sa aircon parehas lang sila, ang sa urvan pag trafik medyo humihina ang lamig kelangan lagi mo rev ng kaunti para ma maintain yung lamig. sa hiace constant yung lamig.

    ride quality mas malambot ang urvan

    pero pagdating sa akyatan at arangkada iwan ang urvan sa hiace

    both vans pag karagado mas stable at mas comfy ang ride.

    sa akin Hiace, kasi i have 2 units. both 94 model.

    one recently got overhauled, 230,000 na ang tinakbo, and nung binuksan nagulat kami at walang tama yung bore. tibay talaga

    I have not personally owned or driven an Urvan, but I hear a lot of praises from owners who attest to the durability of their Urvans, but we owned a Toyota Hiace for about 10 years and I have nothing but praises for it, unlike the L3 that we had before the Hiace which proved to be a headache. Sabi nila malamig daw aircon ng Urvan pero sa tingin ko di matatalo aircon ng Hiace sa Urvan. In this comparison the Hiace gets my vote.

    yung previous gen hiace mas maganda ang ac compared sa urvan due to large AC blowers and evaporators which are closer in proximity to the blowers compared sa urvan. dunno bout the new boxy hiace.

    also, marami ako naririnig na camber problems sa owner ng Urvans as compared sa hiace.

    as for performance, in straight line the 2.7L of the Urvan wins against the previous gen 2.4L Hiace. fuel consumption is about the same. the hiace has better pulling power on steep inclines though and has better gearing for climbing. maybe its just because of the gearing cos the urvan leads the way when it comes to accelerating to highways and switchbacks. again, dunno bout the new 2.5L d4d commuter.

Better Passenger Van? Nissan Urvan Or Toyota Hi-ace Commuter or others?
