When you hear the words “compact car,” you might not expect much room for passengers and cargo. The Nissan Sentra delivers on both, however, with user friendly features and legendary gas mileage as well.
Experiencing the Sentra’s agile handling, smooth ride, and fine interior might also lead one to suspect a premium price tag, but Nissan’s versatile compact delivers a remarkable value at a modest price.
If you would like to see this cool compact for yourself, come by our dealership today to take it for a test drive. At Tom Naquin Nissan, we carry the Sentra and many other cars, trucks, and SUVs, all ready to cruise the streets of Elkhart. Whether you’re searching for a reliable commuter or any other Nissan, we’ll help you find what you need.
What’s New in the 2019 Nissan Sentra?
The latest Sentra comes with new tech, including smartphone integration capabilities. The current generation’s interior has been updated in recent years, and offers a host of impressive amenities that bolster its value.
The Sentra seats five in a surprisingly spacious interior for a compact car. Car seats may also be secured with LATCH connectors on the rear outboard seats. The large trunk offers plenty of cargo space, and the rear seats can also fold to open up even more room.
Standard interior features include an infotainment system with a USB port, four-speaker sound system, and touchscreen. Available features include six-speaker audio system, satellite radio, moonroof, Bose premium audio system, extra USB ports, plus Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities that are new for this model.
A rearview camera comes standard, and available safety features include automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and rear cross traffic alert.
There are two powertrain options available for the Sentra: a 124-horsepower 4-cylinder base engine and the 188-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder. The compact manages twists and turns with ease, and the ride is a pleasure.
History of the Sentra
First impressions are extremely important in the U.S. automotive market, and the Nissan Sentra certainly entered on a high note. Nissan released the Sentra in North America in 1982, making it the second vehicle to hit the market with a Nissan nameplate. Within its first years on the road, the Sentra reached two major milestones. The EPA ranked the Sentra’s gas mileage as top of the list among gas-powered engines at the time, and it also became the best-selling import in the North American market in its first year available.
The Sentra grew and adapted to the market over the following years, evolving from a value-loaded subcompact into the larger compact that it is today. Nissan updated the body style in 1989, and revealed an entirely new redesign ten years later. Through all of its changes, it retained its prized fuel-efficiency and added to its value with the addition of more high-end features and technology.
