The Sentra is completely new for 2007, built on a global platform that Nissan shares with its parent company, Renault. The Sentra remains available only as a four-door sedan but it is significantly larger than the former model, due to the recent launch of the smaller Nissan Versa, which is sized more closely to the old Sentra. A CVT automatic transmission is available across the model line, bringing the Sentra impressive fuel economy. Furthermore, a new electric power steering system is installed on all models, and the latest versions of the sporty SE-R model brings more power and especially distinctive interiors.
Upscale, roomy interior; fuel economy; competitive pricing.
The latest Nissan Sentra stands out for its interior appointments, space-efficient design, and frugal performance of the new engine and CVT automatic, while the sporty SE-R Spec V sets a new standard for interior appointments among compact sedan performance models. The base 2.0 model represents a strong value with quite a few standard features for under $15,000, while the SE-R Spec V performance model offers 200 horsepower and has a base price just under $20,000.
