Will be launched in Japan in August 2016.
The current, fourth generation Nissan Serena, launched in Japan in November 2010, will soon be replaced by the fifth generation Nissan Serena. The all-new Nissan Serena has been leaked online in an image published on livedoor Blog.
The all-new Nissan Serena looks much sharper and angular than the currently sold model. Curves are perfectly blended with razor-edged creases in the right balance it takes to make a traditionally boxy minivan notably more appealing than before. New split headlamps, V-shaped upper grille in chrome finish, redesigned bumper, rectangular foglamps and a re-sculpted hood round up the changes on the front.
Redesigned door mirrors and new door panels are the visible changes on the sides. The rear-end is yet to be seen. The leaked image confirms availability of a two-tone exterior scheme. Three interior schemes and Panasonic 9-inch infotainment system are the two interior features known as of now.
The powertrain of the fifth-gen Nissan Serena isn't known as of now. The current Serena is offered with a hybrid powertrain which consists of the MR20DD 2.0-litre petrol engine producing 108 kW (147 PS/144.77 hp) and 210 Nm of torque in the the 2WD models or 106 kW (144 PS/142.09 hp) and 207 Nm of torque in the 4WD models as the core. The combustion engine is assisted by the SM23 electric motor that generates 1.8 kW (2.4 PS/2.41 hp) and 53.6 Nm of torque.
