The Nissan Serena is a five-door people carrier manufactured by Nissan Motor Company. The car was launched in 1991 and started out as a rather compact little van, but it grew larger with each generation over the years. Earlier versions were front engine, rear-wheel drive layout with a live axle mounted on leaf springs. Later versions had a multilink independent rear suspension, and were front-wheel drive or 4WD. The most popular version was the 2.3 diesel engine version and it was unusual in that it had eight seats instead of the expected seven. In European markets, the C23 Serena had 1.6 or 2.0 L petrols, or 2.3 L diesel engines. Trim levels were LX, SLX, SGX and SGXi. Until around 2002, the standard petrol engine was an SR20DE. A variety of other engines were used over the years, including diesels specifically the CD20 (for the commercial van version), CD20T 1,973 cc Diesel Turbo and CD20ET.
