Want to add some pizzazz to the rather sedate styling of the facelifted Nissan Serena? Well, look no further, as Impul has teased a new kit for the Japanese MPV called the Impul Serena Premium Version, which will make its debut at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon next month.

Based on the posher Highway Star variant (which is what our Serena S-Hybrid is specced in), the Premium Version’s outlandish looks is dominated a massive front grille that extends all the way down. It’s flanked by chrome bars that lead to the headlights and look to incorporate LED daytime running lights, as well as huge scoops with chrome accents.

Also fitted is a huge chin spoiler and splitter, along with fender air vents and large wheels. If you’ve always wanted your Serena S-Hybrid to look like a mini VIP-style Elgrand, consider your wish granted, I suppose.

Launched here last year, the CKD facelifted Nissan Serena S-Hybrid is priced at RM132,978 for the Highway Star model and RM143,063 for the Premium Highway Star variant; both prices are on-the-road without insurance, inclusive of GST.

Power comes from a 2.0 litre direct-injected twin-CVTC four-pot assisted by an ECO electric motor, delivering 147 PS at 5,600 rpm and 210 Nm at 4,400 rpm, mated to an Xtronic CVT. Fuel consumption is rated at 15.2 km per litre on Japan’s JC08 test cycle.
