Performance gets the nod for Nissan’s compact sedan in the 2017 model year. A new SR Turbo edition borrows its powertrain from the Juke crossover SUV. A new Midnight Edition package has been added, too, with black wheels and spoiler. Window glass is now thicker, in the interest of quiet running, and the center console gains storage capacity.
Introduced 35 years ago, the Sentra is in its seventh generation, last redesigned for 2013 and freshened for 2016 with a V-shaped grille in a new front end. All told, Nissan’s compact sedan blends into the crowd, but its appeal is enhanced by abundant passenger space.
Four basic trim levels are offered: S, SV, SR, and SL, plus the new SR Turbo. Regular Sentras hold a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 124 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque (130 hp and 128 pound-feet with manual shift). The 6-speed manual gearbox is standard in S trim, but a continuously variable transmission (CVT) goes into other Sentras and is optional for the S edition.
Sentra SV adds a rearview camera, smartphone connectivity, Siri Eyes Free voice recognition, and keyless ignition. Option packages include features such as a moonroof, heated mirrors and front seats, and navigation.
