As far as new sedans go, Canadian customers have a ton of options to choose from. However, don’t make the mistake of overlooking the amazing Nissan Sentra and everything it has to offer.
When looking for ways to describe the Nissan Sentra, one can resort to a number of adjectives and complicated terminology. The words “fun,” “efficient” and “performance” seem to spring to mind the quickest. Indeed, the Sentra was designed to change the way you think of your morning commute, partly thanks to a roomy, comfortable interior and partly because of a remarkably efficient engine.
Engine Innovations Are Hard To Beat
Thanks to features like spray-coated and mirror-finished cylinder bores, low-inertia turbocharger and low-pressure EGR cooler, expect your Sentra to revolutionize your daily transportation activities. You’ll be able to opt for no less than three different engine specs: the first being a 1.8-litre DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine, which generates 130 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 128 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,600 rpm. The second version is a 1.8-litre DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder that produces 124 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 125 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,600 rpm. Thirdly, is the 1.6-litre DIGTM 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, putting out 188 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 177 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,200 rpm. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual, Xtronic CVT and Xtronic CVT with manual shift mode.
Essentially Three Different Cars At Your Fingertips
You’re able to custom-tailor your Sentra to match your mood with the simple push of a button, and opt for Eco, Normal or Sport Mode. The car is effortless to drive thanks to the electronic steering system, which puts 100% control in your hands by making it easier to steer at slow speeds and also providing a firmer response at higher speeds. The car also delivers impressive handling thanks to damper tuning and a stiffer chassis. Your Sentra will also come equipped with independent strut front suspension, torsion beam rear axle with integrated front and rear stabilizer bars.
Aerodynamic on the Outside, Top Quality on the Inside
If your goal is to buy a reliable and usable car that also turns heads wherever it goes, then look no further than the Sentra. The sleek, aerodynamic silhouette is adorned by signature LED headlights, which give you an impressive line of sight, as well as Nissan’s signature V-motion grille, which appears threateningly aggressive with a distinct honeycomb pattern. On the inside, expect to get a rich and tactile experience thanks to perforated leather-appointed seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, rich Piano Black trim and heated front seats. If you’re really itching to get your Sentra premium, opt for the 8-speaker Bose audio system and Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control.
To Buy Or Not To Buy?
It really depends on what you’re looking for. Certainly one of the biggest selling features of the Nissan Sentra is the fact that it offers higher standards and luxury/premium features at a lower price. The car really makes a powerful first impression and redefines what a sedan is capable of being. Add to that a fuel economy of 7.3 L/100km, loads of advanced technology, interior roominess and tons of other useful features and it becomes clear that the Nissan Sentra is ideal for nearly everyone.
