Choosing Your Nissan Sentra

The Sentra comes in two main flavors: a frugal compact sedan with a 124-horsepower 1.8-liter engine, and a sport sedan with a 188-horsepower 1.6-liter engine.

The frugal sedan comes in four trim levels, from cheap and cheerful to inexpensive and well-equipped.

S

The base Sentra is fairly plain, but serviceable. A manual transmission is standard and raises engine output to 130 horsepower. The optional continuously-variable transmission (CVT) keeps the original 124 horsepower rating, but raises fuel efficiency to 32 mpg in combined driving. Drivers have a choice of Eco, Normal, and Sport driving modes. The S comes with Bluetooth, cruise control, a USB connection port, and automatic headlights.

SV

The SV adds the following to the S as standard equipment: keyless entry, Bluetooth streaming audio, premium cloth seats, a sliding armrest, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, hands-free text message assistant, and a 5-inch color display. The CVT is the only available transmission on the SV model and up.

SR

The sporty-looking SR model rolls on 17-inch alloy wheels, features a rear spoiler, and has extended lower body side sills. Additional exterior trim bits include LED projector headlights, fog lights, a chrome exhaust tip, heated exterior mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, and SR badging. The interior gets heated front sport seats in premium fabric.

SL

The top-of-the-line SL features leather seating, a power driver seat with lumbar adjustments, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and piano black interior trim. Safety gets a boost from blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Other equipment is shared with the SR.

The sports sedan version is available in two models.

SR Turbo

The SR Turbo builds on the SR with a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 188 horsepower. Along with a stiffer body, you get a sport-tuned suspension, larger brakes, and upgraded steering. A sunroof is also standard. The Turbo is offered with a manual transmission or a CVT with manual shift mode.

NISMO

The NISMO carries the turbocharged engine, plus performance upgrades such as 18-inch wheels, four-wheels disc brakes, unique suspension tuning, and a functional rear spoiler. The exterior wear special NISMO design elements.

CarsDirect Tip

Feeling sporty? Skip the SR and head straight to the SR Turbo. The added performance will turn even a trip to the grocery store into a good time.
