2017 Nissan Sentra Goes On Sale From $16,990

Available at US dealers, and with the new Sentra SR Turbo set to join the lineup from October, Nissan has announced the official price list of the 2017 MY.

Kicking off the range is the ‘S’ grade, which features improved interior quietness thanks to the increased thickness of the front and rear window glass, and almost double the storage capacity in the front center console. It starts from $16,990 for the six-speed manual gearbox, while opting for the Xtronic transmission means paying an extra $1,000.

Powered by the same 1.8-liter engine, mated to the Xtronic, the SV, SR and SL models will set their future buyers back from $18,790, $19,990 and $21,500, respectively, while the latest addition to the range, the Sentra SR Turbo, can be had from $21,990. The most potent variant uses a 1.6-liter petrol turbocharged engine that comes straight from the Juke and offers 188 HP (191 PS) and 177 lb-ft (240 Nm) of torque.

To match the powertrain’s performance, changes were made to the steering, suspension and brakes, and drivers are assisted by the brand’s Safety Shield Technologies, which include the Forward Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Intelligent Cruise Control. Depending on the selected model, the Siri Eyes Free voice recognition becomes available, along with the NissanConnectSM with navigation and mobile apps, and Bose premium sound system.
