The Nissan Sentra is available in three trims, the S, S Plus, and SV. A 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 109 hp and 107 lb-ft to the front wheels is standard. This is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox on the S trim, while a CVT is equipped on the upper trims.
The entry-level S trim is extremely affordable but offers minimal features for this price. Infotainment is limited with no smartphone integration, but Bluetooth streaming and MP3 playback are supported. No driver aids are provided, and safety features are limited to airbags, ABS and traction control. The S Plus adds minor changes to the exterior, such as a rear spoiler, and equips cruise control and the automatic transmission to the vehicle, which improves fuel efficiency. The top-tier SV trim improves on the aesthetics, both internal and external by means of silver dash accents and chrome exterior trim, and installs a rear seat with 60/40 split fold-down capability. Power windows and door locks become standard, and the Special Edition Package is made available, which includes smartphone integration, and NissanConnect.
