Borrowing a bit of aesthetic appeal from the Altima and some eye-catching specs from rival
brands, the newly redesigned Sentra has finally come into its own. That freshness should help
attract the appetite of shoppers looking for the perfect economic option.
Nissan Sentra Trims and Features Review
The Nissan Sentra is a small five seat sedan that’s offered in S, SV, SR, and SL trim levels,
along with fuel saving FE+S and FE+SV models. The latter two options come with a rear
spoiler, aero deflectors, and low-rolling resistance tires. Every trim comes with a four-cylinder
engine worth 130 horsepower, and Eco, Sport, and Normal drive modes that help produce either
33 or 34 combined MPG (the base manual Sentra achieves 30 combined MPG).
Things have been expanded inside to the delight, and comfort, of both driver and passengers.
Standard features include basics like power accessories, A/C, and cloth seats, though upper trims
can be decked out in wood and leather trim, heated seats, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth,
Nissan Connect infotainment with navigation, and Bose audio.
The 2013 Nissan Sentra starts at $15,990.

Nissan Sentra Interior Highlights
Part of Nissan’s quest for the new Sentra was improving driver and passenger friendliness,
and they’ve achieved this by adding welcoming space and versatility up front, along with extra
room for backseat passengers. If you are relegated to the second row, you’ll get 37.4 inches of
legroom. Trunk space measures an impressive 15.1 cubic feet.
If you choose, you can build an upscale atmosphere by adding wood and heated leather seating
to the quiet cabin. Nissan Connect offers hands-free texting and voice commands for hands-off
control, and the 5.8 inch touchscreen is also within easy reach for the more traditional among us.
Nissan Sentra Safety Features
Standard on every 2013 Sentra are four-wheel antilock brakes (front disc, rear drum) with brake
assist, stability and traction control, and full-length side curtain airbags. SR and SL trims also
get a rear disc brake option. The Navigation package comes with a rearview camera, and upper
trims get an Easy-Fill Tire Alert system that lets you know the tires are properly inflated.
