Not only the sport utility vehicles got smaller, the vans also got its share as well as the push for better fuel economy. And now, Nissan is releasing its newest Serena minivan edition in Japan. Since its introduction in 1991, the Serena minivan has enjoyed its prosperous moment from 2007 to 2009, with its being the top-selling minivan in Japan.
Now in its third generation, the all-new 2011 Serena is updated with a newly-developed MR20DD engine. The MR20DD engine comes with direct-injection, twin valve timing control (VTC) and Nissan’s new Idling Stop control. Power is shifted through Nissan’s Xtronic CVT transmission. The 2011 Serena minivan achieves a 25 percent improvement in fuel economy over the outgoing 2010 standard models. In addition, the new 2011 Serena produces 75% fewer exhaust emissions when compared to the 2005 Serena.
