    I'm thinking of acquiring a new family van after I got a mirage last year...

    The arrival Nissan nv350 has recently added to my 2 options grandia and starex.. as you can see, I'm targeting a low end variant only..

    I drove a starex gold before.. light steering wheel and comfy ride for me and passengers... and I had a long trip before w/ grandia GL... wherein the seats were cramped... so i was pretty sure starex would be it for us.. but then nissan came up w/ a new van..

    I havnt test drove this kasi wala pa test drive unit... and its just order basis here at our area..

    Can anyone give me info regarding the ride and other pros / cons of the nv350 compare to the starex and grandia?

    Thanks in advance

    Starex ka na lang..yung NV350 na bagong labas ay parang Hiace Commuter ang seats.
    By the way, kung afford mo Grandia GL why not add Grand Starex na CRDi VGT na 1.5M ang price?

    the nv350 is just a remolded hiace commuter, but with better a/c vents. same seating configuration, bare interior.

    so its just like you're choosing between the starex, grandia and nissan hiace commuter. =P

    you might want to consider yung super grandia para hindi cramp at comfy sa passengers mo...

    I would consider the seating capacity. If I won't be needing that much seats then I would opt to less but more comfortable seats.

    Grand Starex pa rin for me, big factor kasi sa akin yung nasa harap ang makina, hindi yung sa ilalim ng upuan. God forbid, pero in case of accident ayoko mapunta sa harap ng Grandia o NV350 dahil flat nosed yang 2 yan, dehado ka agad sa accident, at least yung Starex, makina muna ang sasangga sayo.

    you have a point. maintenance and check up i think would be more accessible if harap yun makina.

    Can H100 shuttle accommodate more people than an 18 seater nissan? It came to my attention that I can actually make a carpool since I'll be using my van send/pick up my 4 kids + 2 adults to schools.
