Serena J Impul – ‘soul of Japanese luxury’

06 Dec 2018 / 21:02 H.

EDARAN Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM) today introduced a new luxury variant of the Nissan Serena 2.0L S-Hybrid that “dynamically enhances and exudes premium-ness” – the Serena J Impul.

Designed by Nissan specialist and tuner Impul, the chrome-plated J Impul’s front and rear lip spoilers are specifically made in Japan to create a high precision, three-dimensional design via injection moulding to achieve 10% downforce and improve high speed stability.

The 18-inch Impul Millennium alloy wheels in black and polished finish enhance the luxurious design and compliment the aerodynamics, while the mocha-coloured diamond quilted premium leather seats further embody “the soul of Japanese luxury”.

“The introduction of the new Serena J Impul is tailored for customers who seek and appreciate Japanese luxury, while the 2.0L S-Hybrid system continues to offer best-in-class fuel economy of 14.2 km/L (NEDC R101*) earning the Serena the Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) status,” said ETCM sales and marketing director Christopher Tan.

*New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) is a driving cycle designed to assess the emission levels of car engines and fuel economy in passenger cars (which excludes light lorries and commercial vehicles). R101 is for the measurement of carbon dioxide and fuel consumption and/or the measurement of electric energy consumption and electric range in hybrid and fully electric M1 and N1 vehicles. M1 are vehicles designed and constructed for the carriage of passengers and comprising no more than eight seats in addition to the driver’s seat. N1 are vehicles designed and constructed for the carriage of goods and having a maximum mass not exceeding 3.5 tonnes.

“Thoughtful and innovative features like the hands-free dual power sliding door, dual back door, seven USB-powered ports, ‘Intelligent Around View Monitor’ (I-AVM) with ‘Intelligent Moving Object Detection’ (I-MOD), and smartphone connectivity with Apple CarPlay, contribute towards making the Serena 2.0L S-Hybrid the number one best-selling non-national mid-size MPV in Malaysia*.”

The Serena J Impul comes with standard five years unlimited mileage warranty, while the accessories come with three years or 100,000km warranty (whichever comes first).
