Los Angeles 2015: New Nissan Sentra follows in Maxima, Altima footsteps

A refreshed 2016 Nissan Sentra made its debut yesterday at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. It will go on sale in late December starting at $16,780 in the U.S. Canadian prices have yet to be announced.

Nissan’s third most popular model (after the Altima and Rogue) now looks more similar to the other sedans in the lineup, namely the 2016 Maxima and 2016 Altima. It sports new front and rear fascias, grille, fenders, hood, signature boomerang-shaped headlights and taillights, and a new 17” aluminum-alloy wheel design. 
Depending on the trim level, the interior features a new steering wheel, new available power driver’s seat with power lumbar, new centre cluster and audio display design, new console and shifter knob, and refined seat fabrics. Let’s not forget the available dual-zone automatic climate control system and Bose premium audio system with eight speakers. Under the hood is the same 1.8L engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or an Xtronic CVT.

Equipment details for all Canadian-spec 2016 Nissan Sentra models will be revealed at a later date.
