2017 Nissan Sentra New Features and Updates

Not much has changed between the 2017 and 2016 Nissan Sentra when it comes to what's under the hood. Both years have offered the standard 1.8-liter inline-four-cylinder that produces 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. Quick and responsive-feeling, this efficient engine achieves 27 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway. The Nissan Sentra will not only save you money at the dealership, but at the gas station on your daily commute.

Looking to the interior, the 2017 Nissan Sentra has a lot to offer drivers looking to take advantage of the stylish design. A standard 4-speaker audio system pairs perfectly with the standard Bluetooth compatibility for making hands-free phone calls and playing your favorite tunes.  Steering wheel audio controls and a bright dashboard make it easy for you to keep your eyes on the road while feeling in control of your vehicle. Cloth seating for up to five passengers and cargo space in the rear allows you to pack your Sentra with whatever you need.
