    Depends on your preference but i'd go with the new nissan nv350 van. The a/c is really important to me sir coz of our climate. My brother has a hiace and in this kind of summer heat it can't cool the cabin for us to be comfortable. Malayo po yun performance sa a/c talaga sir

    Wait first for the Urvan to come out then you decide.

    The advantage of the Hiace is that it is proven (reliability and durability) and has the parts support due to the time it has been on the market.

    The Nissan NV350 (JDM Caravan) looks promising. It's about time that the Urvan is updated. I hope they change or upgrade the YD25DDTi engine. Frugal but needs refinement. Nissan played copycat with the new model. It look so much like the present HiAce. Curious how the Philippine version will look like. I'm wondering if the HiAce will be updated soon. I like the size of the Foton Traveller and the Cummins truck engine. But I'd give Foton 3-5 years experience to really place money on them. Will you be using the van for business or for the family, or both? Take note that the bubble top versions like the TOTL (Super) Grandia and the Foton Traveller are a pain to park in most basements. These vans are built to carry many passengers and payload. If you drive them alone, they are very uncomfortable on the road. If you are planning to haul less than 12 passengers, you are better off with the Grand Starex.
