2015 Nissan Sentra Preview

Pros: The current Nissan Sentra offers up some fantastic interior features, plenty of space, and a comfortable ride all at an affordable price. 

Cons: The Nissan Sentra isn’t the most dynamic compact car in the segment, and without a sporty version to choose from, it looses some of its previous appeal. 

2015 Nissan Sentra Price and Fuel Economy: The Nissan Sentra offers up some great style and features for not a lot of coin. It’s well priced in the market and the following is a list of the models available (base MSRP prices):

And if it’s the CVT you choose, then those numbers change to 6.1L/100km on the highway and 8.0L/100km in the city. 

Powertrain: As mentioned above, there is only one engine available and it is a 1.8L 4-cylinder mill that produces 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels only, and transmission choices reside in a 6-speed manual and an Xtronic CVT.
