Nissan Serena


The New NISSAN Serena symbolizes first class travel on the road. The distinctive wide boxy exterior, the mark of today's flagship MPVs (Multi-Purpose Vehicle) such as the NISSAN Elgrand is evident in the new Serena as well.

I agree with the spacious claim, and it has decent safety features too. It is a good size minivan type of vehicle (don't compare with Alphard, though). Kids can "run" around inside, which now I think probably is not preferable. It fits three-four decent size bicycles with the last row folded. Another cool feature is the rotateable second-row seats.

Luxurious and modern? I'm not sure. It seems Nissan try to balance between costs and features. It's way behind what Toyota Wish has, not to mention the truly luxurious Honda Stream. The interior seems rigid, which I wish Nissan can do a much better job in designing it (they have many options for exterior accessories).
