The 2018 Nissan Sentra is the perfect compact sedan, with a spacious interior, nimble maneuverability, and plenty of features. The Nissan Sentra’s size makes it great for city driving, but it’s still big enough to be comfortable during long road trips.
The 2018 Nissan Sentra is available in six trim levels: S, SV, SR, SR Turbo, SL, and NISMO®.
Performance and Fuel Economy
The 2018 Nissan Sentra offers two engine options. The 1.8-liter DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder is standard on the S, SV, SR, and SL, and is paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or an XTRONIC Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). It puts out 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque with the manual transmission, or 124 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque with the CVT.
The SR Turbo and NISMO® trims come with a 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline turbocharged four-cylinder engine and the XTRONIC CVT transmission, equipped with a Manual Shift Mode to add fun to the drive. Both engines provide plenty of power without sacrificing their impressive fuel economy.
Interior and Features
The new Sentra comes with a wide range of features and amenities that make every ride more comfortable, convenient, and fun. The hands-free text messaging assistant, RearView Monitor, and other technologies that come standard on the Sentra improve safety and let you stay connected.
At higher trim levels, you get features like Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control and Push Button Ignition, and plenty of other features that let you relax and enjoy the fun of driving. The Sentra even offers Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and other active safety features can be hard to find on compact cars like this.
New This Year
The 2018 Sentra has the same price as the 2017 model, but it adds plenty of exciting updates like making Automatic Emergency Braking standard on all trim levels besides the NISMO®. Adaptive cruise control is standard on the SR trim, and the Nismo tech package is standard on all NISMOs®.
