Registration of interest for the fifth-generation Nissan Serena S-Hybrid is now open, with the launch of a dedicated page on Nissan Malaysia’s website. The new MPV has already been given its first public preview just last week, and we are now provided with a few more details.

Under the bonnet, the C27 will continue to use a S-Hybrid powertrain as seen on the C26 Serena, with a MR20DD 2.0 litre direct-injected twin-CVTC four-cylinder petrol engine providing 150 PS at 6,000 rpm and 200 Nm at 4,400 rpm.

The mill is mated to an Xtronic CVT with Adaptive Shift Control (ASC), and is joined by an ECO motor that controls the car’s Idling Stop function and serves as an alternator during deceleration. The 1.8 kW/200 A motor also allows for a “torque assist” function, providing a 50 Nm boost for up to one second when moving away from a standstill.

A fuel consumption of 14.2 km/l (NEDC) and Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) status are also touted on the site, with the latter confirming the Serena will be a locally-assembled (CKD) model as before.

The rest of the specifications is similar to our previous report, with a seven-seat configuration (2-2-3) being the only one that will be available. Other items include seven USB ports, dual-powered sliding doors, a 360-degree Around View Monitor and Intelligent Moving Object Detection (I-MOD).

Safety-wise, there are six airbags, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), traction control, Hill Start Assist (HSA), ABS with EBD, brake assist and dual Isofix child seat anchor points. Lastly, four colours are offered – Brilliant White, Tungsten Silver, Diamond Black and Cashmere Gold.
