Nissan Serena Overview

The Nissan Serena is classed as a large MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) and is produced by the Japanese manufacturers The Nissan Motor Company. These vehicles are also known as 5-door people carriers, which began life as more compact MPV’s and have grown in size over its lifetime. They can come in 7 or 8 seaters. These vehicles are very spacious and versatile with good sliding doors at the rear, which makes for easy access in tight spaces. They have good driving positions and the 8 seater version is unusual but good for transporting that extra person. How did your Nissan Serena rate compared with whats said above?

This vehicle was discontinued in the UK and replaced with the Nissan Primastar, which is a rebadged Vauxhall Vivaro or Renault Scenic. The Mark II (1999-2005) had different engines available and had a different look than its predecessor. It had a slight makeover in 2002.
