Atoy Customs creates the Nissan Urvan Premium A

In case you want something more opulent than the Premium S

Last week, we told you about the Nissan Urvan Premium S, a more luxurious version of the Japanese automaker’s passenger van. Well, it turns out more discriminating customers who have higher standards of luxury have a better (but also more expensive, of course) option. Friends, meet the Urvan Premium A.

Atoy Customs big boss Atoy Llave sent these photos to VISOR ahead of the vehicle’s debut at this week’s Manila International Auto Show. Basically, the Urvan Premium A has everything the Premium S is equipped with, but with more opulent seats and better materials and finish for certain features. Just check out the interior. It’s literally like walking into a spa.

The only thing missing here from the actual package is a removable table, which should allow you and your friends to play board games—or conduct a Bible study—in traffic. A 19-inch TV is also a possible add-on, Llave told us.

If the Premium S is priced P442,000 more compared to the basic Urvan Premium model, the Premium A will cost you P550,000 to P570,000 on top of the Premium’s price tag (P1,776,000 for the MT and P1,836,000 for the AT).

Besides the plush interior package, Atoy Customs also offers Urvan owners aftermarket wheels and tires “for more grip” and suspension components “for a softer ride.”

Those who are interested may check out the Nissan Urvan Premium A at MIAS from April 5 to 8, or visit Atoy Customs at 57 West Avenue, Quezon City. Why put up with a regular van if you have the means to pamper yourself and your family on the road?
