New 2013 Nissan Sentra Starts at $15,990*, $440 Less than Outgoing Model

Nissan today released detailed pricing for the brand-new Sentra compact saloon before it hits U.S. showrooms on October 16.

Prices for the 2013 Sentra start at $15,990, not including a destination and handling fee (*) of $780, which is $440 less than the starting MSRP of the previous generation model (2012MY).

However, whereas the 2012 Sentra is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine rated at 140hp and 147 lb-ft of torque, the new model has downsized to a smaller displacement and less potent 1.8-liter unit generating 130HP and 128 lb-ft of torque.

According to Nissan, the new Sentra is five percent lighter than the outgoing model, even though it is slightly larger overall offering more interior room.

The smaller engine that’s connected to a next generation Xtronic CVT along with the more aerodynamic and lighter body help the new Sentra deliver a 13 percent improvement in EPA combined fuel economy at 39mpg.

Besides the base Sentra S that comes with a standard 6-speed manual gearbox, all other grades are offered with a CVT.

Available comfort and driver-focused technology features for the 2013 model include heated leather-appointed seating surfaces, Dual Zone Automatic Climate Control, Bose Premium Audio System, RearView Monitor and NissanConnectSM with Navigation system.

More detailed information on pricing and available options can be found in the list that follows below.
