Handling that makes you happy

Sharp handling, smooth ride

Sentra finds the coveted balance between compliance and responsiveness with its independent rear multi-link suspension, filtering out harsh, jarring impacts without filtering out the joy of driving.

Efficient engine power

With a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine, Sentra delivers all the horsepower and torque you need without using extra fuel. For more purr-factor, Sentra features a balancer shaft that cancels out unwanted engine vibrations for a smooth feel.

Drive like a pro

Intelligent Trace Control

Reads the situation and, if needed, can brake each wheel individually to help you steer smoothly through the corners.

Intelligent Engine Brake

Uses the Xtronic Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) to apply engine braking, for more level and confident stopping.

Rock every city block

Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control

You like it at 68°, your front passenger stays comfortable at 72°. Available Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control lets each of you set and enjoy the temperature of your choice.

Remote Engine Start System

No matter what the temperature, the available Remote Engine Start System helps make sure you always get into a comfortable car. And once you’re ready to go, keyless entry makes getting in easier than ever.

Tech that’s got your back, sides and front

Rear Automatic Braking

Save your bumper. Sentra with class-exclusive standard Rear Automatic Braking watches out directly behind you for stationary items you might not see.  If it detects something and you fail to stop, it can automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a rear collision or lessen the severity of an impact.

Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection

Sentra looks out for what’s ahead and for people crossing in front of you. Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection monitors your speed and distance between you and the car ahead, and can let you know if you need to slow down.  It can also automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a frontal collision or lessen the severity of an impact. And when it detects a pedestrian in the crosswalk, it can stop you in your tracks.
