Special features for 2011

The Sentra has always been a good value, and with prices relatively unchanged for the 2011 model year, Nissan has staked out its territory in the compact sedan market, facing fierce competition with the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. Fuel economy is great across the board, with the 2.0L CVT model capable of 26 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.
The 2011 Nissan Sentra is a FWD sedan with three available engine options; 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 140 hp, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 177 hp, and an additional 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine (SE-R trim level) that produces 200 hp. Transmissions include a 6-speed manual, 6-speed close ratio manual, and Xtronic CVT® automatic transmission. Depending on engine and transmission selection the Sentra can get anywhere between an EPA estimated 24 mpg city and 34 mpg highway. Options include navigation, rear-view monitor, and navigation. Safety features are comprised of six standard airbags, vehicle dynamic control, anti-lock braking, and electronic brake force distribution. For those interested in upgraded performance the SE-R trim level features a 200 hp producing engine, lightweight intake manifold, lightweight exhaust, aluminum pedal pads, paddle shifters, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, truck-mounted V-brace, sport bucket seats, and oil pressure gauge. The Sentra is backed by a 3-year/30,000-mile warranty.
