Presented in its current form just last year, the new generation Nissan Sentra has been updated for 2021 with new features and is already on sale at dealers across the nation.
Previously reserved for the higher grades, the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration is now standard in the entry-level model too.
The NissanConnect Services and NissanConnect with Wi-Fi hot spot can be ordered for the range-topping SR, which is also available with a new dual-tone paint finish, which combines the Electric Blue Metallic with a Black roof.
The Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite of driver assistance systems comes at no extra cost and features things such as the automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot warning, intelligent driver alertness, high beam assist and rear door alert.
The lineup still includes three variants, with the Sentra S starting at $19,410, excluding the $925 destination and handling charge, and the dealer fees. The Sentra SV is priced from $20,470, and for the Sentra SR, you’re looking at a minimum of $21,750. The MSRPs have gone up by $100 on all trim levels compared to the 2020 model.
Power still comes from a 2.0-liter engine, which soldiers on unchanged. The naturally aspirated four-cylinder unit pumps out 149 HP (151 PS / 111 kW) and 146 lb-ft (198 Nm) of torque, 20 and 17 percent respectively more than the old generation, and is hooked up to an XTronic CVT.
