At the front, the elegant expression of the Serena is enhanced with a chrome garnish that accentuates the aggressive profile of the front bumper, the trim also complements the distinctive chrome inserts of Nissan’s bold V-Motion front grille. At the rear, chrome trim is applied to the lower edge of the bumper to visually differentiate the J IMPUL and likewise matches the front chrome accent and IMPUL emblem found on the tail-gate.

To ensure surefooted handling and a smooth ride, the Serena J IMPUL is equipped with ultra high-performance Goodyear Eagle F1 Sport tyres with signature Eagle Claw tread design and ActiveControl Technology for outstanding stability and steering response. It also delivers superior braking through its DynamicBraking Technology along with a quiet and comfortable ride.
The spacious interior of the Serena also receives a premium IMPUL makeover with the seats and door trims upholstered in combination leather.

The new Nissan Serena J IMPUL retails for RM169,888. All IMPUL accessories are factory-fitted and enjoy a warranty of 3 years or 100,000km, whichever comes first.

Innovative features such as the Dual Back Door with split tailgate operation offers unparalleled loading flexibility in tight spaces, while getting into the Serena is easy even when you have your hands full courtesy of the hands-free Dual Power Sliding Doors – both features are class-leading conveniences enjoyed exclusively by Serena owners and not found on other MPVs.
