2016 Nissan Sentra near Newark

The 2016 Nissan Sentra is aimed at those car buyers looking for a compact sedan that offers a comfortable drive, a roomy interior, and plentiful high-tech features. With the Sentra, they'll have five trim levels to choose from: base S, fuel-efficient FE+S, well-equipped SV, sporty SR and premium SL.

The Sentra underwent some big changes for 2016. There's a new, more aggressive exterior styling with a new V-shaped front grille and boomerang headlamps. This brings the compact more in line, looks-wise, with its larger Altima and Maxima siblings. Both the SR and SL models receive new 17-in. wheel designs as well.

The interior also underwent several updates. A more hi-res information screen greets the driver while the steering wheel has been inspired by the 370Z roadster. Speaking of class-leading, there's such a generous amount of headroom in both rows that the Sentra feels like a larger mid-size sedan. This includes the trunk which has a volume of over 15 cu.-ft.

The Sentra's infotainment gets upgraded with NissanConnect services powered by SiriusXM satellite radio and Siri Eyes Free for the iphone. Also new for the 2016 model year are available active cruise control, forward emergency braking, a blind detection system and rear-cross traffic alert.


The base Sentra S comes with air conditioning, Bluetooth phone connectivity, keyless entry via a fob, power windows and mirrors, cruise control and automated headlamps just to name a few. The SV builds on that with such popular creature features like Bluetooth audio connectivity, push-button ignition, a rearview camera and the above mentioned NissanConnect.

The SL is the top model. Leather upholstery, navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control and a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert are just a few of the items found exclusive at this trim level.

The FE+ S and SR are specialized Sentra variants. The former, which is based off the S, prioritizes high mileage via low-resistance tires, a rear trunklid spoiler and underbody aerodynamic deflectors. The SR is the sporty model of the line. It builds on the SV with such exclusive bits like a sport body kit, sport cloth upholstery, unique wheels and foglights.

All Sentra models are powered by a 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder engine which is paired to either a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission. Horsepower and torque are 130 and 128 respectively. EPA estimates manually-equipped Sentras to get 27 mpg city, 36 mpg highway and 30 mpg combined while those with the CVT to achieve 29 mpg city, 38 mpg highway and 32 mpg combined. The exception is the FE+S which impresses with 30 mpg city, 40 mpg highway and 34 mpg combined.
