Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has given the Nissan Serena S-Hybrid a bit of flair, with the introduction of the dressed-up Serena S-Hybrid Tuned by Impul in the country. Two Impul variants are available – the 2.0L Impul Highway Star, which is priced at RM145,578 and the 2.0L Impul Premium Highway Star, which goes for RM155,863, both on-the-road without insurance.
As you’d expect, the Impul job adds a fair amount of kit. There’s a new front bumper (though it’s not as dramatic as the Impul Serena Premium Version in Japan), a rear bumper spoiler, side skirts and a roof spoiler, with chrome-finished sport ducts and a bonnet fin adding further bling.
Rounding off the exterior add-ons are 18-inch Impul Aura SX-50 alloy wheels finished in gloss gun metal, wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport 3 rubbers.
Otherwise, it’s pretty much your everyday Serena S-Hybrid, save one little revision. The interior of the Impul Highway Star has been left untouched, but the Impul Premium Highway Star adds diamond-stitched combination leather seats – with an Impul logo embossed on the front seats – into the equation.
Existing CKD Serena S-Hybrid owners wishing to get in on the action can do by retrofitting the Impul package on their ride, though no prices were mentioned for going this particular route.
