New Nissan Sentra debuts at Los Angeles Auto ShowNovember 20, 2019
The compact sedan from the Japanese automaker received an update that affected the interior, exterior and engine compartment.
The very first version of the Nissan Sentra debuted in the US back in 1982. Over 37 years of sales, the company managed to sell more than 6 million copies of the sedan, making the car one of the most successful models in the history of the brand. Next year, Nissan has planned the release of a new generation of Sentra, which received many changes in exterior and interior.
The novelty has visual similarities with the Altima and Maxima sedans, as well as the Kicks and Rogue crossovers. Sentra received the same V-Motion grille, thin LED headlights available as an option, as well as a “soaring” roof – they can be found on other cars in the Nissan range.
Buyers can choose one of eight body color options, but there are three options for two-tone color.
Sentra is equipped with a completely new platform that reduces clearance and increases width. The novelty also boasts increased comfort in the cabin thanks to the sealing of doors, windows and the body.
Under the hood is a 2.0-liter engine that develops 149 horsepower and 197 Nm of torque and is paired with a continuously variable Xtronic transmission.
Regarding the interior, the novelty received branded Zero Gravity seats, a leather trim option, a 7.0-inch touch screen with Bluetooth and speakerphone, as well as a 4.2-inch digital dashboard unit.
The basic version is equipped with a Nissan Safety Shield 360. The kit includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, monitoring “blind spots”, a warning about cross traffic at the rear and out of the lane, automatic high beam control and automatic braking.
