Model Preview

The Nissan Sentra was last refreshed in 2024, and for the upcoming 2026 Nissan Sentra, we expect a full redesign. With a full redesign, we expect new and bold things inside and out. The 2026 Sentra should retain the new nose and tweaked headlights it received in the 2024 refresh, but we expect to see some design changes in the rear as well.

Being a redesign we think the 2026 Nissan Sentra should have a fully new interior with a modified layout and a bigger screen. We expect all the latest interfaces and technologies to accompany this model. We expect it to carry Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, at least four audio speakers, though we're hoping for more, and multiple USB ports. Available features should include a larger touchscreen option, a Bose audio system, a Wi-Fi hotspot, satellite radio, and extra USB ports.

The last refresh didn't bring any new engine options for the Sentra, and we're hoping to see a more fuel-efficient engine, possibly a mild hybrid model, for the redesign. The engine on the current model is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 149 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. The engine should pair with the same updated CVT it received in 2024. We don't know for sure what engine will be available yet, so we can't speculate on the mpg of the 2026 Sentra.

We'll email you as soon as the 2026 Nissan Sentra becomes available.

The Sentra should remain a comfortable sedan for five and should continue to come in three trims unless the new model year has some tricks up its sleeve. We wouldn't mind seeing a fourth trim added which gives buyers a sporty top-of-the-line option.

Pricing & Release Date

We should see tires on the ground for the newly redesigned 2026 Nissan Sentra by late summer or early fall of 2025. We don't know what pricing will look like with the new design, but we speculate it should start between $23,000 and $25,000 depending on the trim.

The 2026 Nissan Sentra should compete against models such as the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Mazda Mazda3, Subaru Impreza, and the Hyundai Elantra.

We will update this page as more information becomes available, so be sure to check back.
