Nissan Motors will showcase the Nismo version of its Nissan Serena MPV at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show 2017.
The fifth-generation Nissan Serena which went on sale in Japan in August of last year boasting enhanced practicality, greater cabin space and the company’s ‘ProPilot’ driver assistance technology.
The Serena Nismo is fitted with performance orientated styling parts - such as the redesigned front bumper, side skirts and rear bumper that deliver a sporty outlook of the otherwise practical people-hauler.
Along the flanks, snazzy gloss black five-spoke wheels also fill the wheel arches. Nismo’s signature red accents will also dress-up the interior of the Serena.
The Serena Nismo also promises better handling, thanks to a sport-tuned suspension system. A new engine control module and exhaust system are claimed to sharpen the overall driving experience.
The Japanese market Serena S-Hybrid is powered direct-injected 'MR20DD' inline-four which has been carried over from the fourth-generation model (currently on sale in Malaysia), albeit with some tweaking for better fuel consumption. The engine is mated to Nissan's X-Tronic continuously variable transmission.
The Serena Nismo is scheduled to go on sale in Japan in November 2017.
