At the moment, the CBU Japan Serena Hybrid's priced at RM149,515.30 OTR Without insurance.  It comes with 3 years OR 100,000km warranty.

Highlights of this Hybrid MPV:

+ 14 seating configurations

- No spare tyres.  Tyre puncture kit given instead
- NOT Full hybrid.  It's little difference VS Skyactiv.
- Many Glass area = Moving Greenhouse Oven.  Unless you tint the whole car.
- No leather seats, Fabrics in place.
- Quirky Boxy Design.
- Only 2 Airbags.


I only spent 10 mins behind the wheel of this Serena S-Hybrid so I can't comment much except it's a Comfortable, smooth operator thanks to the X-tronic CVT.  It handles Much much better than it's arch-rival Mazda Biante 2.0 Skyactiv.  It's more spacious and practical too.  Quite pleasent ride and handling.


Overall Rating: 8/10.  Better Comfort, Better RIDE and Handling and More practical than arch-rival Mazda Biante.
