2023 Nissan Sentra: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

For 2023, Nissan is rumored to be giving a refresh to the Sentra. The compact sedan underwent a complete redesign in 2020, so while we cannot confirm that a refresh is in the books, we imagine that it wouldn’t be too drastic if it is.

There are no spy shots available to confirm any design changes in the next Sentra, but refreshes usually come with slightly updates grilles, fascias, and head and taillights. On the interior, a refresh may constitute a slightly larger display screen and another option for the material of the upholstery.

The current Sentra has only one powertrain option, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) that delivers 149 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. EPA ratings top out at 29 mpg city, 39 mpg highway, and 33 mpg combined. It’s speculated that the refresh may introduce a new independent rear suspension. If that is the case, it may improve ride, handling, and fuel economy. Also possible could be a performance version of the Sentra that comes with a 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder engine.

The current MSRP for the Sentra starts at $20,835, and it’s doubtful that would change much for the 2023 model, except perhaps for the performance version, if one does get produced. Since this refresh is only speculative, we don’t have a release date, but the next Sentra would be likely to come out by the end of 2022.

Sedans are a shrinking class, but possible rivals for the Sentra include the Chevrolet Malibu, Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai Accent, Honda Civic, and Kia Forte.

Stay tuned to find out more information.
