2017 Nissan Sentra Review

The good life is well within your reach. You’ll enjoy it more in the Nissan Sentra. It’s a sleek looker that’ll impress your friends and at 40 miles per gallon on the highway--impress you. The Sentra was recognized as an IIHS Top Safety Pick with a long list of available advanced safety features so you can hit the road with confidence. Choose from 5 models starting with the S through the top-of-the-line SL. The Sentra is daring and impressive. The sleek aerodynamic exterior keeps things whisper-quiet and the interior is filled with available unexpected luxuries like leather and mood lighting. Available NissanConnect keeps tabs on your music texts calls and more–all while allowing you to keep your hands on the wheel. It even offers an array of safety and security services. Get away with just a warning. Available Safety Shield Technologies like blind spot warning act as a second set of eyes. Choose from an array of sporty colors to make your Sentra yours. The Nissan Sentra upgrade your everything.
Sentra’s interior has ample leg room as well as amenities. The 60/40 split rear seat and fold-down front passenger seat give you flexible cargo space. Available premium features include leather dual-zone automatic temperature control and an 8-speaker Bose audio system. NissanConnect offers navigation mobile apps and services. The touchscreen brings it all together on one dash-mounted system. Use available Siri Eyes Free and the text messaging assistant to stay in the loop without getting distracted by your smartphone.
The Sentra comes with a host of safety features to help you feel at ease. Nissan’s Advanced Air Bag System includes supplemental front air bags that move with seating adjustments. The Vehicle Dynamic Control and Traction Control System reduces engine power and increases brake pressure if it senses over- or understeering. Anticipate and avoid accidents before they happen with available features like the rearview monitor and rear cross traffic alert.
The Sentra is one smooth operator. The aerodynamic exterior cuts through air while the 1.8-liter engine paired with a virtually gearless Xtronic CVT transmission helps maximize efficiency. You’ll get up to 40 miles per gallon keeping you going…and going. With the push of a button you can customize your driving to fit your mood. Choose from Eco Normal and Sport. It’s like having 3 different cars. Electronic steering makes your drive feel effortless while the road-tuned suspension and stiffer chassis provide confident handling.
