There wasn’t much choice in Malaysia if we really want a 7seat MPV and price < 200K RM.
although there are model to choice from Innova , Nissan Lavina , Honda Stream , Mazda 5 , Toyota Wish (grey importer).
What determint the buying factor ?????? Fuel Save , Bigger space if more then 5 person , Comfort Riding + other misc feature.

Safety specification have in Nissan Serena S-Hybrid are, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Hill Start Assist, driver and front passenger SRS Airbags, and ABS+EBD+BA
The roomy of Nissan Serena S-Hybrid interior The Nissan Serena S-Hybrid powered by 2.0L MR20DD able to produce 147 PS at 5,600 rpm and 210 Nm at 4,400 rpm, and matted with Xtronic CVT gearbox.
