Restyled Nissan Sentra costs US$ 16,780 in the USA

After showing the new face of its Sentra, Nissan has recently revealed the prices for the C segment sedan, produced in Aguascalientes, Mexico. Its entry-level trim, S, costs US$ 16,780, or US$ 250 more than the outgoing model. Besides the cosmetic changes, performed in order to give the sedan the same family face already presented by Maxima, Altima, March and Versa, the car has a new steering wheel and automatic headlights as standard.

The visible changes are on the front grille, now with a chromed V shaped frame, the headlights and also on the front and rear bumpers, as you can see in the video below. The car definitely has much more character than before.

Equipped with a 97 kW MRA8DE 1.8 4-cylinder engine for the North American market and with a 104 kW MR20DE 2.0 4-cylinder flex engine for Brazil, the New Sentra also offers the option of a new power seat lumbar adjustment and, in higher trims, such as SV (US$ 18,550) and SL (US$ 22,170), electronic safety aids such as Forward Emergency Braking, Intelligent Cruise Control, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Another interesting change the Sentra has suffered relates to its suspension, which has stiffened its dampers and springs by 10%, in order to reduce body roll. The only manual transmission option, a 6-speed, is the S, while all other trims come with the good CVT offered by Nissan.
