Nissan Sentra Price

Time has come for the Japanese carmaker Nissan to present the pricing list of their new Sentra compact saloon. The specialists plan to bring it in the North American Showrooms starting the 16th of October. Until then, let us check out the list. Apparently, the carmaker will offer the 2013 Nissan Sentra for a starting price of $15.990. This amount does not include the $780 handling and destination fee. Actually, this price is $440 less that the starting retail price suggested by the manufacturer of the previous generation model, the 2012 model year, to be more precise. The 2012 Sentra receives power from a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine capable of developing 140 horsepower and 147 lb. ft. of torque. With the 2013 Nissan Sentra, we have a different story.

The carmaker reduced the size to a smaller displacement. Now, the 1.8-liter engine is capable of producing 130 horsepower and 128 lb. ft. of torque. Even though the new model is a bit larger overall, offering more interior room, the carmaker said it is 5% lighter than the current model on the market. To send the power to the wheels, the engineers have offered a next generation Xtronic CVT. The fuel consumption was reduced because of this, but also thanks to the more aerodynamic and lighter body. After a 13% reduction, the model uses 36 mpg of fuel. All grades except the Sentra S come with a CVT. The S is equipped with a standard 6-speed manual transmission.

When it comes to comfort and technology, the new 2013 Nissan Sentra features Dual Zone Automatic Climate Control, heated-appointed seating surfaces, Bose Premium Audio System, NissanConnectSM with Navigation system and RearView Monotor. The highest price was established for the 2013 Sentra SL equipped with a 1.8-liter engine mated to a CVT, which reaches $19.760. These are all the information available so far.
