Nissan PH Bumps Up Prices Of Kicks E-Power, Urvan

Even Nissan Philippines isn’t immune to the rising suggested retail price on some of its vehicles. Thankfully, the effect isn’t as widespread as what we’ve seen at Honda, but it’s also not as small as we’ve seen at Toyota.

Starting this month, be prepared to pay a bit more for their well-received hybrid, the Kicks e-Power as well as select variants of the Urvan.

Staring this January, the SRP of the Kicks compact crossover is up P 30,000 across the board. This means the effective prices are:
  • Kicks E-Power EL – from P 1,209,000 to P 1,239,000
  • Kicks E-Power VE – from P 1,309,000 to P 1,339,000
  • Kicks E-Power VL – from P 1,509,000 to P 1,539,000
Select variants of the NV350 Urvan have also gone up P 30,000 for two variants:
  • NV350 Urvan 15-Seater – from P 1,480,000 to P 1,509,000
  • NV350 Urvan 18-Seater – from P 1,489,000 to P 1,519,000
The rest of the Nissan range have remained the same. To stay updated on the latest car prices, don’t forget to check out our Car Price Guide.


  1. Its okay if Nissan increased the prices of the Kicks and Urvan SWB as dealers give away good cash discounts for those vehicles.
    Almera VE is nice but its small engine and transmission are gonna be expensive to replace in the long run.

    2. If taken with reasonable care, that's gonna be a very loooong run before you'll have to replace the small engine and transmission.

    3. That junk jatco CVT? No amount of reasonable care can save those transmissions. 不

    4. Let me guess, your only experience with JATCO CVT's are from what you saw with Scotty Kilmer's Youtube videos?

      Locally, JATCO cvt's are not a major concern, reliability-wise. The likelihood of you, poorly maintaining the car, as the cause of breakdown is higher than the JATCO CVT failing on its own considering the fixes that was introduced over a decade ago.

    5. And your proof of unreliability is? lol Youtube.

      Since the Gen1 Xtronic CVT, JATCO hasn't had as many problems as before. LOL. Napanood mo lang, naniwala ka na agad tapos di na nag-update HAHAHAHAHA 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不

    6. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! "Since the Gen1 Xtronic CVT, JATCO hasn't had as many problems as before."

      DUDE, I can't breathe. HAHAHAHA 不不不 You got good jokes.

      By the way, comments with links get deleted here. A simple google search will reveal Nissan with CVT owners reports. And let me tell ya, it doesn't look pretty.

    7. LOL dude, either those units have over 150k MILES, and above, not properly serviced (due to expensive servicing cost), and all of them are in NORTH AMERICA.

      HAHAHHA JOKE TIME KA DUDE. Considering Nissan made it to Top 5 of the most reliable car brand in MALAYSIA, the same country where we have the same mechanical specifications.

      J.D Power stat also shows that Nissan fared within the industry average, and was even able to reach Top 10 in the most dependable brands in 2021.

      Pinagsasasabi mo, source mo Google search and blog lang kasi. hahaha joke time ka dude saka ka na magcomment kapag may actual and reliable source ka na, hindi yan kukuda kuda ka jan, blog lang naman pala source mo.

      FYI, we also owned a Nissan way back in 2010, and our office currently manages several Nissan's, all of them using JATCO transmissions. All still perfectly working.

      Not only that, kung may kilala kang reliable na mekaniko, majority won't even list Nissan CVT's as the most problematic CVTs out there. At madalas, CVTF oil change lang ang katapat. hahahaha patawa to, wala namang real world, relevant knowledge. Google search pa nga, eh north american market naman. with the most common issue beIng improper servicing. HAHAHAHAHAHA

    8. "At madalas, CVTF oil change lang ang katapat." AHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAAAHA不不不

      BRUH, gayahin mo na lang si Jokoy. Mag stand up comedy ka. Cause what you're saying, just pure comedy gold man. 不不不

    9. JATCO CVT issues are much more prevalent in America than in the Philippines. In America, the CVTs were paired to torquey V6 gasoline engines with heavy bodies (Murano, Altima) that travel long distances interstate travels. While here in the Philippines, the JATCO CVTs are limited to puny Almeras, Celerios, Swifts, and Mirages that are city runabouts. With quite a lot of CVT Celerios and Mirages, the transmission is really not the main concern of most customers (most of their concerns were about the poor body build quality, "kalampag" suspension, electronics, etc). The rest of the car could as well fall apart well before the CVT gives in LOL. The transmission is not really stressed because the load is much much lighter and less demanding especially when travelling within the short-distance routes here in the Philippines.

    10. I read an experience with Nissan CVT years ago in one forum, I think it was tsikot, the guy was having problems with his sylphy's transmission.

    11. Maybe its not tsikot, but kutchi d GREAT LIAR不不不
