Sentra’s all-new 1.8-liter engine matches Continuously Variable Twin Valve Timing Control with an available next-generation Xtronic® Continuously Variable Transmission. What does all that mean? That both the engine and transmission are constantly adjusting for maximum efficiency to get you a combined 33 miles per gallon.
1.8-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine
Sentra® is powered by a 130hp, 1.8-L 4-cylinder engine, that achieves an impressive 36 mpg on the highway. It’s built compact with special friction reducing coating, and advanced technologies—like twin continuously variable valve timing, and beehive shaped valve springs—for power and efficiency.
6-speed manual transmission
If it’s full control of six gears that does it for you, the 6-speed manual keeps you close to the action. Triple-cone synchronizers in first and second gear make for brisk and precise shifting. While a smaller rpm drop with each upshift means a more seamless response to your demands.
Vehicle-speed-sensitive electric power steering
Sentra® is sensitive to your needs. Its electric power steering system senses how fast you’re going, so it provides a natural, solid feel at higher speeds and more power assist at low speeds for effortless maneuvers.
Eco, Normal and Sport drive modes
Sentra® is equipped with three drive modes to suit your mood. Choose Eco mode to help maximize fuel efficiency. For maximum responsiveness—and a boost of fun— try Sport mode. For an ideal blend of efficiency and performance, set it to Normal.
Up to 39 MPG Highway
Sentra® delivers excellent fuel efficiency, while maintaining performance. Get where you need to go, and get there on budget, with up to 39 mpg on the highway when equipped with the Xtronic CVT®.
Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control
Some like it hot. Some, not so much. That’s why Sentra comes with an available Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control (ATC). And if you go with the available heated front seats, both the driver and front passenger can customize their level of cold-weather cozy.
Smart Auto Headlights
Smart auto headlights turn on automatically in the dark, and when you activate your windshield wipers. And they know to switch on if you drive into a tunnel, but are smart enough to stay off in the shade. Pretty smart for headlights. You might even say brilliant.
Push Button Ignition
Forget old-school key-ignitions. When Sentra detects the available Nissan Intelligent Key® in the vehicle, all you have to do is push the start button, and go.
Bose® Premium Audio with speakers
The sound engineers at Bose® took a look at Sentra’s cabin, assessed the acoustics, then custom-built an optional eight speaker audio system with an 8-channel amplifier for it. The result: sound-quality that’s simply unheard of.
Nissan Intelligent Key®
Instead of reaching for your keys, just tap a button on your door handle to lock or unlock Sentra. It’s the magic of the available Nissan Intelligent Key®.
Want to reply to a text message? No need to reach for your phone. Sentra’s available Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant keeps you connected through Voice Recognition technology. Or use the standard Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System to make a call without taking your hands off the wheel.
