2018 Nissan Sentra Car Review

If you want to upgrade your day-to-day commutes around the Hermitage, Youngstown or Warren areas, the compact Nissan Sentra sedan promises to do just that.

With an impressive powertrain, sporty exterior, and engaging infotainment system, the Nissan Sentra strives to make the everyday fun again. We have provided this helpful 2018 Nissan Sentra car review to highlight all this desirable car has to offer.

2018 Nissan Sentra Powertrain

The 2018 Sentra offers you the choice of two engines. The standard engine is a 1.8L 4-cylinder generating 124 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque.

If you want a bigger blast of power, consider the 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which generates 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque.

These engines are paired with a standard 6-speed manual transmission, or two different available continuously variable transmissions (CVT).

The first is the Nissan-exclusive Xtronic CVT®. This smart transmission uses various inputs to determine the best gear ratio for a smooth acceleration. If you want the best of both worlds, you also have the option of the Xtronic CVT® with manual shift mode, for operating in a limited manual mode.

Between all of these options, the Sentra will get you an EPA-estimated combined fuel economy of 27-32 mpg, depending on the engine/transmission combination you pick.1

Sporty Exterior

The aerodynamic Sentra is sure to turn some heads your way.

With clean lines and a low stance, this compact sedan cuts through wind resistance to deliver on its EPA-estimated up-to 37 mpg highway fuel economy.1

The aggressive honeycomb grille and 17-inch alloy wheels add to the sporty styling, while available LED low-beam projector headlights provide both form and function by adding impressive nighttime visibility to this modern design.

Each trim includes Intelligent Auto Headlights, so you never forget to turn your lights on in low-visibility conditions, and you won’t drain your battery by forgetting to turn them off.

Nissan Sentra Infotainment

As you hit the open road, there will be no shortage of ways to stay connected or entertained while piloting the Nissan Sentra.

With available NissanConnect® mobile apps, you can access some of your favorite apps like Pandora®, Facebook and TripAdvisor, and operate them directly through your car. With Siri® Eyes Free, you’ll also have the ability to interact with your phone to make calls, send texts, find destinations and more.

You can also make use of standard Bluetooth® streaming audio for hands-free access to your favorite music and stream it through the Bose® Premium Audio system with eight speakers and two subwoofers.

Stay connected on the go with the standard Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant, which reads your texts to you and uses voice commands to compose and send responses.
