With the soul-sapping traffic congestion we’re all exposed to on a daily basis, many of us would now rather take some form of public transport than drive our own cars ourselves. And for some of us who can afford it, we’d much rather just get a spacious van and hire a chauffeur to take us to wherever we need to go. No more stress, no more cursing, no more wasted hours just staring at someone else’s broken taillights.

Now, if you’re among the fortunate ones who have the luxury of ditching the steering wheel in favor of the back seat of a personal van, why not take things up a notch by transforming the vehicle into a more comfortable mobile lounge? One in which you can literally sit back and enjoy a good book or a revitalizing nap.

That is basically the proposition being put forward by Atoy Customs to owners of the Toyota Hiace Grandia, the Hyundai Starex, the Nissan Urvan or even the Foton Traveller. The vehicle customization specialist currently has four packages that offer different premium seating configurations. Check them out.

Modifying your van’s passenger cabin isn’t cheap, but think about all the benefits you will get from a spruced-up and more comfortable interior. Just look at the above photos and ask yourself if you’d rather not rest your derrière on these opulent perches instead of your vehicle’s pathetic benches. If you’re thrilled with the possibilities, you can give Atoy Customs a visit at 57 West Avenue in Quezon City, or contact (02) 411-5858 or (02) 414-1068.
