Nissan & Serena Edit
The Nissan Serena S-Hybrid or more commonly known as just the Nissan Serena is a 7-seater multi-purpose vehicle (MPV). Although it doesn’t have direct competitors in its price range, it can be compared to other large MPVs like the Toyota Innova, Toyota Estima, and Kia Grand Starex. The Nissan Serena’s interior is fitted with various thoughtful features for the driver and passengers which make this car very pleasant to live with.
Nissan Serena Variants
There are three variants of the Nissan Serena in Malaysia; the standard Nissan Serena S-Hybrid Highway Star, the Nissan Serena S-Hybrid with Premium Highway Star Black Package, and the Nissan Serena S-Hybrid with Premium Highway Star Two-Tone Package. Although Nissan included the word “S-Hybrid” in the vehicle’s name, it doesn’t refer to a hybrid engine. Instead, it refers to Nissan’s S-Hybrid energy-efficient motor system with an electric power regenerator that charges the battery.
