Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has introduced the facelifted Nissan NV350 Urvan in Malaysia, and the 14-seat people mover – which made its local debut in October 2014 – features some cosmetic changes as part of a minor refresh.

External revisions include a new V-motion signature front grille and restyled front bumper as well as redesigned headlights. Inside, the Urvan gets a new steering wheel, which the company says adds a modern touch to the cabin. Otherwise, the EEV-certified microbus continues on as before – no mechanical changes to the powertrain and drivetrain combo, a YD25DDTi 2.5 litre turbodiesel mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

The revised high-roof NV350 comes equipped with the features introduced to it in September last year, in this case manual levelling for the headlights, an ECE R89-compliant speed limiter to adhere to the speed limit regulation in Malaysia of 100 km/h for passenger vehicles with more than 12 seats and a fuel cap with lock (complying with ECE R34 regulations). Standard safety items include brake assist and ABS.

Imported from Japan as it was previously, the Nissan NV350 Urvan facelift is priced at RM125,000 (on-the-road, without insurance) and comes with a five-year or 150,000 km warranty for individual and company private registrations.
