At least according to a dealer post on Facebook, the Nissan Serena looks set to get a facelift in Malaysia this year. The MPV, which is still in its fifth generation (C27), was first launched here in 2018 and is currently the S-Hybrid Powertrain and two variants – 2.0L Highway Star and 2.0L Premium Highway Star (package or two-tone package available with Black) ).
As far as design changes, the latest Serena has a neat V-motion grille with slim chrome slats and a modified mesh. The more discreet chrome edges of the grille also extend into the headlamps, which retains their shape, but now appears to be attached as a result. Elsewhere, the front and rear bumpers have been slightly re-profiled, while the taillights have remained the same.
The modifications for the Highway Star version (this is what we get for the pre-facelift model) are a little more noticeable here, it has a double V-motion grille that extends further down towards the center air intake.
It has a black surround and is accompanied by chrome inserts, as well as a more aggressive front bumper sporting L-shaped inserts that have fog lamps at the corners. These inserts are also repeated for the rear bumper, and the highway star’s taillight clusters are larger, extend further down the side of the car, and feature a unique light signature.
Inside, the Serena gets some minor trim changes and a redesigned instrument cluster but otherwise remains the same as the pre-facelift model. This applies to both Standard and Highway Star versions of MPV.
The FB Post did not include a full list of specifications, but did say that the updated Serena would come with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), lane exit warning and active safety features such as a blind spot monitor.
The current Serena does not have such a system now and its safety kits for both variants include six airbags, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Traction Control, Hill Start Assist, Intelligent Moving Object Detection (I-MOD) and a surround. ) And intelligent driver alert (i-DA). MPV is a popular option for car buyers here, so having a more robust set of safety features is a must.
Other systems added as part of Facelift include Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Emergency Assistance for Pedal Misappropriation. The optional ProPILOT semi-autonomous driving feature that was introduced at the time of the C27’s first introduction also gets a restructuring to provide improved speed control for smoother braking in different driving situations and better maintaining the driver’s set speed.
There is no mention of what power the new Serena will have when launched here, although we should expect the same S-Hybrid powertrain as before. It has an MR20DD 2.0 liter direct-injected four-cylinder petrol engine with 150 PS at 6,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm.
Coupled with an Xtronic CVT, the Mill works with an SM24 ECO electric motor rated at 2.6 PS and 48 Nm, which acts as an alternator and starter motor, helping to control the lazy stop system, restore energy and provide acceleration assistance.
In Japan, the S-Hybrid Hall is offered one of two powertrains, the other being Nissan’s e-power system that includes an EM57 electric motor (136 PS and 320 Nm) powered by an HR12DE 1.2 liter three-cylinder engine (84) PS. And 103 Nm) – no direct connection of the engine with the wheels.
