Canadian car buyers are now able to buy a Nissan Sentra model that is turbocharged. This Sentra trim is the first with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and is fifty per cent more powerful than the standard Sentra. Historically this SR turbocharged Nissan Sentra four door sedan is the first model Sentra to come on the market with a turbocharged engine. Fifty per cent more power than on the standard Sentra is provided by a 1.6-Litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine giving 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. The SR Turbo has larger brakes, a revised suspension with firmer shocks, and revised electric steering. It is also equipped with LED lights and a spoiler. The Nissan Sentra is available with a choice of 6-speed manual or unique Xtronic transmission with manual mode. Both are tuned specifically to the SR Turbo engine.

Upgrade your Sentra with Premium packaging

With the Premium Package, you get the NissanConnect multimedia system that contains a 5.8 touchscreen. This is equipped with navigation, voice recognition, SiriusXM, and mobile apps. The premium package also includes a sliding glass moonroof, a Bose Premium audio system with eight speakers, as well as leather seats.

The five- passenger four-door turbocharged Nissan Sentra is front engine four-wheel drive producing 1.6L/188 horsepower, 177 lb-ft turbocharged DOHC 16 valve 1-4. The SR Sentra Turbo is also offered with an advanced Xtronic transmission that provides a wide gear ratio resulting in high-speed fuel efficiency and responsive acceleration. This is enhanced with the Xtronic’s D-Mode step shift program that simulates shifts, enhancing a more natural acceleration feeling and letting rpm’s build as speed builds.

The present Nissan Sentra range now comes with front and rear glass that is thicker enabling them to give a quieter drive. Another convenient feature is the storage console that is now almost double in size. The 17-inch wheels and sporty interior and exterior trim of the SR turbo make the turbocharged Sentra most appealing. LED headlight accents, side sills, chrome exhaust finisher, fog lights and heated outside mirrors with LED turn signals, all add to a sportier trim. The turbocharged SR Nissan Sentra is designed to attract car enthusiasts who want the attributes of traditional compact sedans combined with serious turbo performance.

The interior

There is a soft touch instrument panel and armrests. Entry is keyless, and the ignition start is with a push button system. Features include a rearview monitor, tilt and telescopic steering column, power windows, and power auto-locking door locks. The rear seats are standard 60/40 fold- down design that adds extra space for carrying any large cargo.

The Nissan Sentra represents the compact car field with force and its worth the time to check out and test drive to feel its power.
