Introduction

Performance gets the nod for Nissan’s compact sedan in the 2017 model year. A new SR Turbo edition borrows its powertrain from the Juke crossover SUV. A new Midnight Edition package has been added, too, with black wheels and spoiler. Window glass is now thicker, in the interest of quiet running, and the center console gains storage capacity.

Introduced 35 years ago, the Sentra is in its seventh generation, last redesigned for 2013 and freshened for 2016 with a V-shaped grille in a new front end. All told, Nissan’s compact sedan blends into the crowd, but its appeal is enhanced by abundant passenger space.

Four basic trim levels are offered: S, SV, SR, and SL, plus the new SR Turbo. Regular Sentras hold a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 124 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque (130 hp and 128 pound-feet with manual shift). The 6-speed manual gearbox is standard in S trim, but a continuously variable transmission (CVT) goes into other Sentras and is optional for the S edition.

Offered with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a specially tuned version of Nissan’s CVT, the new 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the SR Turbo generates 188 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. The Turbo’s suspension is a little stiffer than usual.

With or without turbo power, SR is the sporty premium Sentra model. An available Premium Package adds a moonroof, Bose eight-speaker audio, leather upholstery, upgraded infotainment, and several active-safety features. A Style Package for SV includes the moonroof, a rear spoiler, and 16-inch alloy wheels. Base S models don’t even include a rearview camera. At least, outward visibility is good, helped by a lower beltline and relatively high seating position.

Fuel economy is a plus, but safety ratings are less impressive and contemporary safety technology is offered only on top trim levels. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave Sentra Good crash-test scores and declared it a Top Safety Pick. In crash-testing for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Sentra got only four stars overall and for frontal impact, but five stars for side-impact collision.

Forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking is part of a Technology Package, along with adaptive cruise control. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert also are offered.

Lineup

Nissan Sentra S ($16,990) comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox, four-speaker audio, and 16-inch wheels. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.) Sentra S CVT ($17,990) substitutes the continuously variable transmission, adding cruise control, automatic headlights, and Bluetooth phone connectivity.

Sentra SV ($18,790) adds a rearview camera, smartphone connectivity, Siri Eyes Free voice recognition, and keyless ignition. Option packages include features such as a moonroof, heated mirrors and front seats, and navigation.

Sentra SR ($19,990) features appearance add-ons including lower bodyside sill extensions, a rear spoiler, and 17-inch alloy wheels, plus all-disc brakes.

Sentra SR Turbo manual ($21,990) comes with the turbocharged engine, 6-speed manual gearbox, upgraded suspension and steering, sport seats, sunroof, and Bluetooth audio streaming. Sentra SR Turbo CVT ($21,990) substitutes the continuously variable transmission.

Sentra SL ($21,500) features leather trim, a power driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, NissanConnect with navigation, and an auto-dimming mirror.

Sentra NISMO ($24,990) offers factory-tuned performance, including turbo engine and either 6-speed manual shift or a CVT.

Walkaround

Taller and narrower than typical of compact bodies, Sentras lack the visual spirit of a Honda Civic or Mazda 3. Overall, the Sentra conveys the relatively plain image of an econocar.

Up front, the deep V-shaped grille is flanked by boomerang-shaped headlights. SR models express a modestly sportier theme, making them stand out a bit from the compact crowd.

Interior

Roomy and welcoming, the tall-roofed Sentra would have been considered midsize not so long ago. Though seat comfort ranks around average, four passengers can expect ample space for heads and legs. Even with a sunroof, head clearance for six-foot riders isn’t a likely concern.

Up front, the driver and passenger sit somewhat higher than usual. Back-seat passengers get plenty of legroom, with sufficient space for two average-size adults or a trio of pre-teen youngsters. Getting into the back seat is easy, too, through doors that open wide onto broad openings. At highway speeds, the cabin is agreeably quiet.

With cargo volume of 15.1 cubic feet, the Sentra provides one of the largest trunks in the compact class. Split rear seats fold down to increase storage capabilities and include a folding center armrest.

Although the cabin won’t be called fashionable, it’s traditional in nature, led by an upright dashboard with logical controls. Curving gently, the two-tier dashboard tapers at the sides, boosting available space. Standard cloth upholstery is a better choice than optional leather, which has a plastic-like feel.

Driving Impressions

Until 2016, all Sentras held what’s now the base engine. Not especially quiet, lacking somewhat in power, the 1.8-liter four doesn’t provide a stimulating experience. Basically, it does its job without fuss.

Nissan’s latest CVT performs decently, as expected, but acceleration tends to be sluggish. A base-engine Sentra seems overmatched when traversing hilly terrain or carrying several passengers. Programmed virtual gear ratios in the CVT can simulate a conventional automatic transmission, but the engine grows quite loud when accelerating hard or tackling an upgrade.

Compared to a Mazda 3 or Ford Focus, even the Sentra SR Turbo trails in driving enjoyment. Performance clearly reaches past that of the base engine, but the Turbo won’t remind anyone of Nissan’s old SE-R models. The 6-speed gearbox for the SR Turbo is loose and notchy, lacking in precision.

All Sentra drivers can select from three modes: Normal, Eco, or Sport. Unfortunately, the selection buttons aren’t easily seen, but they affect throttle response as well as transmission operation.

Handling has never been Sentra’s strong point. While the sedan is competent enough and corners capably, thanks to its brake-controlled steering assistance, it doesn’t inspire spirited driving. Steering, on the other hand, is well-weighted and confidence-inspiring.

Ride comfort is sufficiently smooth and relatively soft. The suspension absorbs bumps and pavement roughness effectively. During highway cruising, the cabin is serenely quiet.

Only SR and SL models can have all-disc brakes, but the rear-drum system halts sufficiently well. Expect some nosedive and excess body motion when halting hard in a Sentra.

Fuel economy ranks as respectable, EPA-rated at 29/37 mpg City/Highway, or 32 mpg Combined. The SR Turbo is EPA-rated at 27/33 mpg City/Highway, or 29 mpg Combined, with CVT; but 26/32/28 mpg with manual shift.

Summary

Shoppers are more likely to turn to Sentra because they need a capable compact, rather than because they crave this particular one. After all, family-minded buyers aren’t ordinarily seeking stimulating performance and high-end handling traits. Lower-level Sentras are better values.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
