The All-New Nissan Serena 2.0L S-Hybrid has been launched by Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM). As a great addition for families, the all-new Nissan Serena S-Hybrid comes with a completely new design and sporty appearance, not forgetting space! Two trims are available at launch a Premium Highway Star and Highway Star.
Present at the launch was Vincent Wijnen, VP of Marketing and Sales, Asia and Oceania, Nissan Motor Asia Pacific Co. “In many ways, the Nissan Serena is a strong symbol of Nissan itself. It has consistently been one of the most popular passenger cars. In fact, this calendar year, it’s number-one in its class in Japan, with more than 33,000 units sold so far”, he said.
Locally assembled, the new Serena is powered by a 2.0L direct-injected twin-CVTC four-cylinder petrol engine. It’s power output stands at 148 hp at 6,000 rpm with a torque of 200 Nm at 4,400 rpm. The unit is paired to XTRONIC CVT with Adaptive Shift Control (ASC). Adoption of the new Dual Arm Tensioner (DAT) works to maintain optimal tensile force on the belt to reduce friction, reduce power lost and increase fuel efficiency.
Improvements have been given to engine, resulting in a 2.8 per cent improvement in power to weight ratio. It also has the best-in-class fuel economy of 14.2 km/ litre which is a 13 per cent fuel economy improvement over its predecessor, thus providing the all-new Serena S-Hybrid an Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) status.
The locally assembled MPV also offers new technologies beginning with Hands-Free Dual Power Sliding Door which operates by a simple quick kick below the door to open or close in case your hands are full. Dual Back Door can be opened easily in tight parking space, also Capless Fuel Filler makes refuelling more convenient, and there are 7 USB-Powered Ports for each passenger’s electronic device charging needs.
The modern and premium interior of the vehicle is a plus for both drivers and passengers. It has a full colour 7-inch Advance Drive Assist Display (ADAD) which provides vehicle and driving information. Other than that, there is a Flat Bottom Leather Steering Wheel with Cruise Control, an asymmetrical centre cluster housing the premium 6.75-inch Clarion Advanced Touchscreen Display Audio, push start ignition with Intelligent Key for keyless entry and a Dual-Zone Auto Climate Control System.
For matters concerning safety, 6-SRS Airbags are now standard in the all-new Serena S-Hybrid.
