Nissan Sentra Promises Fuel Economy, Connectivity

Nissan’s all-new 2013 Sentra, unveiled Friday, is the third of five vehicles being introduced in a 15-month period.

Like the recently unveiled Nissan Altima and Pathfinder, the redesign of Sentra focuses on design standards as well as efficiency in engineering. It is 150 pounds – or five percent – lighter than the outgoing model, yet has slightly larger overall dimensions and more interior room.

The lighter and more aerodynamic new Sentra allows Nissan to use a more fuel-efficient 1.8-liter engine, which along with the next generation Xtronic CVT with sub-planetary gear helps deliver a 13 percent improvement in EPA combined fuel economy.

“With the complete redesign for 2013, Sentra is closer in look and feel to Altima than a typical compact sedan. Like Altima, the new Sentra offers best-in-segment attributes, such as high fuel economy and easy-to-use connectivity,” said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc.

It offers NissanConnect with navigation, hands-free text messaging assistant, POIs (Point of Interest) powered by Google and Google Send-to-Car functions. It will be on sale at Nissan dealers in the U.S. this fall.
