The ever-popular Nissan Sentra is a small, spirited economy car that has gone through many iterations in its model life. The latest Sentra generation has brought a higher level of technology, security and stability to the overall driving experience when you’re behind the wheel. Improved handling, responsive braking and steering lend a higher comfort level with the sense of being in control at all times. The 2016 Nissan Sentra refresh, in particular, turned out to be pretty comprehensive.
The exterior styling has been redesigned for a surprisingly upscale look; the interior trim modifications are thoughtful and upmarket, new technology and safety features are attracting a new audience for this economy brand.
The technology Sentra offers now is outstanding for the vehicle price point. The base Sentra S infotainment system is an AM/FM radio and CD player with 4 speakers with USB port for connecting a variety of compatible devices as well as an Aux input jack that can accommodate all kinds of, MP3 players and phones, WMA CD playback capability, and a Bluetooth hands-free phone system.
On the outside, the base Sentra S comes with 16-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, remote keyless entry, air-conditioning, a height-adjustable driver seat, a sliding front armrest, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, cruise control, and a full cohort of power accessories.
But that is only the start, The 2016 Nissan Sentra comes with 5 trim levels and a fairly extensive pallet of options: the sedan is offered in S, FE+ S, SV, SR and SL trims.
Every 2016 Nissan Sentra gets a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 130 hp and 128 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the S and FE+ S trims, while a CVT is optional on those models and standard on all other Sentra trims.
Standard are antilock brakes, stability control, tire-pressure monitoring, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and active front head restraints. A rearview camera and Nissan's Easy Fill Tire Alert system are standard starting at the SV trim level.
Airbags, vehicle dynamic control, front seatbelt pretensioners, and child safety locks are standard on every Sentra. Forward emergency braking and blind-spot warning are available, but only as options and only for the top two trim levels.
The Nissan Sentra was an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+ which is the organization's highest possible rating.
Since the price point is so on target for the economy segment, the base model can be had for much less than similar competitors but with more features. The Sentra is a value-minded, attractive, roomy and well-equipped sedan. Ask about the outstanding warranty Nissan is offering for new purchases!
