Nissan Sentra is back with a new design. Exuding an air of modern sophistication with a touch of “professional” character, the new Nissan Sentra is a magnet for those who want a premium driving experience.
The new design features Nissan’s bold new signature trapezoid-shaped grille and large wraparound headlights with standard LED accents – a first for a sedan in the compact segment. The rear also features standard LED taillights, complementing its sophisticated styling.
Creating a more aggressive aura and improved outward visibility for its passengers, a new character line runs through the front fenders, along the sides and ends at the sedan’s sculpted taillights and trunk lid. Its beltline has also been lowered, compared to that of the previous model’s. On top of that, the new design features chrome door handles and accents, heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals, and a sport front and rear fascia and rear spoiler.
New Sentra is now 150 pounds lighter because it now uses a different platform compared to the previous design. This new platform also provides ample rear seat legroom and a larger trunk capacity, making the 2013 Sentra’s interior one of the largest interior volumes in its class.
Dimensions of the 2013 Sentra also differ from the previous model. Its wheelbase is now longer by 0.6 inches (or 106.3 inches) and its overall length now measures 182.1 inches (2.3 inches longer than the previous design). It now comes with a shorter front overhang and an extended rear overhang. To improve its aerodynamics, the new Sentra is now shorter in height by 0.6 inches and narrower (width) by 1.2 inches. However, its interior volume at 111.0 cubic feet is quite larger than the 110.8 cubic feet of the previous model. Coefficient drag is also reduced from 0.34 to 0.29.
