The Nissan Serena NISMO recently went on sale in Japan, combining NISMO’s performance, driving pleasure and styling with the popular minivan’s family-friendly, utilitarian nature. This latest addition to NISMO road car series combines powerful styling and driving pleasure with comfort and convenience.

The new model offers the opportunity to experience the appeal of the NISMO brand. It’s the latest addition to the NISMO road car series, which began with the Nissan Juke NISMO in 2013. The series has since expanded with the addition of the Nissan March NISMO, Nissan Note NISMO, Nissan Fairlady Z NISMO and Nissan GT-R NISMO models.

NISMO, a short form of ‘NIS’an MOtorsports,’ is the performance brand for Nissan and one of the company’s purveyors of “innovation that excites.’ NISMO offers products featuring innovative technology and high performance to a wide range of customers for street use. NISMO cars provide an exciting driving experience with motorsports-inspired aerodynamics and styling, enhanced handling characteristics and unmatched agility.

Nissan has spared no effort in fully incorporating NISMO technology into the Serena, which went through a full model upgrade in August 2016. The result is the Serena NISMO, realizing powerful styling and exhilarating driving without compromising the convenience and comfort that allow the entire family to enjoy long drives. The Serena NISMO offers strong stability and comfortable handling for worry-free driving, even at high speeds. This is achieved through the custom-made reinforced body and suspension tuning. In addition, the custom tuning computer and custom sports-tuned muffler result in the exhilarating acceleration for which NISMO is known.

The exterior design features the toughness and style characteristic of the NISMO brand. Specially designed elements in sections such as the front bumper and rear spoiler have significantly improved its aerodynamic performance. Both the interior and exterior feature accents in red, the colour of NISMO. The model comes in seven available body colours, including four that are exclusive to the NISMO series.

The Serena features ProPILOT technology, enabling autonomous driving in single-lane traffic on highways. The technology is a key part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s blueprint for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated with society. The new Serena is 2WD and is an Xtronic A/T CVT. We would love to see in in South Africa.
