Introduce even more practicality into your daily routine with the 2017 Nissan Sentra. This compact sedan has been designed to be incredibly roomy on the inside, so you can fit four passengers and plenty of cargo without difficulties. At the same time, parking in tight spots is simple. Excellent fuel economy means not having to stop at gas stations as often. Drivers will also appreciate the simple and effective infotainment system, as well as the intuitive dashboard layout.
You can get the 2017 Nissan Sentra in one of five available trims: S, SV, SR, SR Turbo and SL. Each one comes with some useful and exciting features.
The standard engine is a 1.8-liter DOHC four-cylinder with 16 valves. It can whip out 130 horsepower and 128 lb.-ft. of torque for great all-around performance. The SR Turbo trim boasts even more performance, thanks to a 1.6-liter direct injection gasoline turbocharged four-cylinder engine, it pushes out a mighty 188 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines make use of continuously variable valve timing for excellent efficiency and a responsive electronic drive-by-wire throttle.
Front-wheel drive is the only option with the 2017 Nissan Sentra. A six-speed manual transmission can be had with some models, with an Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) is standard on others. Vented disc brakes for the front wheels come standard, complimented by electronic brake force distribution and brake assist. Drivers will be thrilled by the independent strut front suspension, plus a torsion beam setup for the rear axle. Turbo models gain even more aggressive suspension tuning, helping the car to really hold to the road through tight turns. Active understeer control can be added to models without the manual transmission.
Safety is a priority placed high on the list with the 2017 Nissan Sentra. The airbag system includes side curtains, which guard all outboard seat positions. Vehicle dynamic control with traction control helps correct slides, oversteer and other dangerous situations. The zone body structure combines with side impact beams, an energy-absorbing steering column and buckling creases for the hood to soften the blow of any crash.
Several available advanced safety technologies transform the 2017 Nissan Sentra into an extra set of eyes for the driver. Blind spot warning lights up an indication signal on the corresponding door pillar as well as the dash. If the driver ignores the warning and switches on the turn signal, an audio alert sounds out. Rear cross traffic alert can detect vehicles not even visible as they approach from the sides, making backing out of any spot as less risky endeavor. Radar allows the car to detect other vehicles and objects in front of it, powering the forward emergency braking and intelligent cruise control.
Everyone will love traveling in the 2017 Nissan Sentra. Front and backseat space is excellent, and the trunk is large enough to swallow up bags, groceries or whatever else is needed. Cutting-edge systems put you in command of useful information and entertainment options, such as the SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, handsfree text messaging feature, voice commands, Siri Eyes Free and a Bose Premium Audio System with eight speakers and two subwoofers.
