Introducing the 2018 Nissan Sentra

Just because a car is classified as compact doesn't mean that you can't think big. Thinking big is exactly what Nissan has done with the 2018 Sentra. By creating a car with an ambitious amount of cabin space, exciting technology, and safety features to protect you from the unforeseen, the 2018 Nissan Sentra is a big deal with a small body.

Exterior Style

As you gaze upon the Sentra, you will notice its prominent grill with its chrome accent. It's muscular hood and signature headlights provide a bit of sporty styling to the Sentra. From the side it creates a sleek, aerodynamic profile, and optional 17-inch alloy wheels make a statement when you pull up to your destination. 

More Room than Expected

When you climb inside the Sentra, you will notice the sheer abundance of space. Not only is there plenty of legroom for passengers, but there is quite a bit of room in the back seat as well. This is all thanks to Nissan's designers and engineers ability to shoehorn a cabin that is nearer a midsized car's volume into the compact sized Sentra, providing comfortable seating for five. The cabin has been embellished with numerous soft-touch materials. For next level styling, the Sentra's interior is available with cushy, 6-way adjustable heated leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power sliding moonroof, and Piano Black trim. 

The Sentra has a wealth of cargo area for your belongings. A generous trunk yields 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space, one of the most spacious in its class. Even more room can be had by laying down its 60/40 split rear seats. This gives you up to 74.1 cubic feet of space for bulky items. For extra tall cargo, the passenger side front and rear seats can be folded to provide room for items up to eight feet long.


There are two engine options for the Sentra. The first is a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that provides 124 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. The 1.8-liter engine is rated for an impressive 37 Highway MPG* when paired with Nissan's Xtronic automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) and 35 Highway MPG* when combined with a 6-speed manual transmission. 

For those that prefer a more spirited drive, SR Turbo and NISMO trims are powered by a 188 horsepower 177 lb-ft of torque 1.6-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The turbocharged engine provides 50% more horsepower than other Sentra models, while still providing up to 33 Highway MPG.* Both the SR Turbo and NISMO trims also receive an upgraded suspension, improved brakes, and larger wheels for your driving enjoyment. SR Turbo Sentras are equipped with an automatic continuously variable transmissions (CVT) and NISMO Sentras receive a 6-speed manual transmission.
