There are a lot of compact sedans available on the market, each with its own set of strengths, but one that's definitely worth checking out is the 2017 Nissan Sentra. It's roomy, fuel-efficient and user-friendly, plus it's a great value for your money. For all of these must-have qualities – and more – the newest Sentra is an excellent choice.
For a five-passenger compact sedan that offers lots of content – standard and optional – the 2017 Nissan Sentra provides it with five stand-out trim levels. The Sentra's base-level S comes with all of the essentials – automatic headlights, cruise control – along with some nice add-ons like remote keyless entry, height-adjustable driver seat, Bluetooth phone connectivity, and four-speaker sound system with CD player, USB port, and auxiliary audio input jack.
Consumers that are looking for the basics, but also want an extra dose of electronics, the SV trim gains:
• 5” driver information screen with instrument cluster
• 5” central touchscreen
• Rearview camera
• Bluetooth audio connectivity
• 6-speaker sound system with satellite radio
The Sentra's top-line SL trim is perfect for those wanting the most out of the Sentra. It comes with all lower-trim content, plus upscale loot, such as:
• Dual-zone automatic climate control
• Leather upholstery
• Auto-dimming rearview mirror
• 5.8” touchscreen with navigation and voice controls
• Blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-path alert
For consumers seeking a small sedan that boasts sports appeal, Nissan's 2017 Sentra is an excellent choice thanks to its available SR and SR Turbo trims. Both are equipped with rear disc brakes, sport body kit with rear spoiler, and 17” alloy wheels. They also include LED headlights, foglights, heated mirrors, upgraded cloth upholstery, and heated front seats.
The SR Turbo adds additional sports allure with the inclusion of:
• Turbo-charged engine
• Sport-tuned suspension
• Re-calibrated steering
• Upgraded front brakes
There are also two optional packages that can be tacked on to the Sentra's SR and SR Turbo trims – the SR Premium Technology package and SR Turbo Premium package. They equip the Sentra with:
• Leather upholstery
• Power driver seat
• Auto-dimming mirror
• Larger touchscreen with navigation
• Adaptive cruise control with automatic emergency braking
• Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert
• 8-speaker Bose audio system
Nissan's 2017 Sentra may not be the fanciest or the most upscale, but it does provide two essentials – quality and space. The interior is solidly built and materials are of great quality. While the exterior of the Sentra may appear like a typical compact sedan in size, the interior is much larger than seems possible. Front and rear seats offer excellent head- and legroom, even for those of six feet. Trunk space is above-average, too, with 15.1 cubic feet of storage. Add in the 60/40-split rear seat backs and the Sentra's backseat expands for more cargo capacity.
