The 2017 Nissan Sentra ranges from $17,855 in its base S trim to $25,855 (including the $865 destination charge) for its top-of-the-line Nismo trim. Because the Sentra caters to a more value-oriented crowd, its base trim will be the most popular among buyers, and it comes standard with:
- Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel controls
- A USB port
- Keyless entry and ignition
- A four-speaker audio system
- Power windows, locks, and mirrors
- 16-inch steel wheels with covers
- Automatic on/off headlights
To spruce up this base model, buyers can add the S Style Package ($500), which includes 16-inch 10-spoke aluminum wheels and a rear spoiler. Nissan also offers the SV, SR, and SL trims for buyers that demand a better array of standard equipment. Buyers looking for some added performance can opt for one of the SR Turbo models ($22,855 to $23,345 with $865 destination fee) or the Nismo model ($25,855 with $865 destination fee).
The Sentra is available with three engines. The base model uses a 130-horsepower, 128-pound-foot, 1.8-liter four-cylinder, while the SV, SR, and SL trims use a tweaked version of this engine with 124 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. Both the SR Turbo and Nismo trims use a 1.6-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder with 188 hp and 177 pound-feet of torque. The base trim gets a standard six-speed manual and an optional continuously variable transmission, while SR Turbo and Nismo flip the script and get a standard CVT and an optional manual. The SV, SR, and SL are only available with the CVT.
