It’s big, it’s roomy, and it features a lower, aerodynamic body that widens at the fenders for a striking broad-shouldered look. Together with finishing touches usually reserved for luxury vehicles, Sentra’s transformation is nothing short of class-defying.
LED brilliance LED accent lights catch the eye. That means they can help make Sentra visible to other drivers, even in daylight—and they’re stylish too.
Stylish wheels The available 17” alloy wheels not only look really cool, they’re also lightweight—helping to contribute to a smooth and responsive ride.
Clarity in almost any condition With available heated exterior mirrors, weather conditions won’t prevent you from seeing what’s coming up from behind. Plus, integrated turn indicator lights signal your intentions.
Premium materials. Plush trim. More rear leg room than the Corolla, Elantra, Civic, or Cruze[*]. And it’s all packed into a cabin built so quiet, you can carry on a conversation no matter how loudly the world outside is carrying on.
Room to stretch With seating for five, Sentra’s redesigned interior is not only stylish, there’s also plenty of room to stretch your legs—comfortably.
Design that soars This unique dashboard was inspired by a bird’s wing, giving Sentra’s cabin an open, airy feel.
Smart storage With 60/40 split fold-flat rear seats and a 15.1 cubic foot trunk[*], forget about packing light. Whatever you need, just take it along.

Step inside your
A well-designed space makes you feel at home. So when you reach for a button or glance at a gauge on Sentra’s dashboard, everything’s exactly where you expect it to be. And with available extras like rich wood-tone trim and leather-appointed seating, you’ll get tired of the sights long before you get tired of driving.
Bring all you need
(plus a few things you don’t)
Sentra is a compact sedan, but you might just have to take our word for it. With fold-down seats, the cabin is so spacious and versatile that there’s even room for oversized items, like an 8-foot ladder. Just lower the front passenger seat, fold the rear seats, secure your cargo, and you're on your way.
Dual Zone Temperature Control
Some like it hot. Some, not so much. That’s why Sentra comes with an available Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control (ATC). And if you go with the available heated front seats, both the driver and front passenger can customize their level of cold-weather cozy.
Smart auto headlights
Optional Smart auto headlights turn on automatically in the dark, and when you activate your windshield wipers. And they know to switch on if you drive into a tunnel, but are smart enough to stay off in the shade. Pretty smart for headlights. You might even say brilliant.
Forget old-school key-ignitions. When Sentra detects the available Nissan Intelligent Key® in the vehicle, all you have to do is push the start button, and go.
BOSE® premium audio
The sound engineers at Bose®[*] took a look at Sentra’s cabin, assessed the acoustics, then custom-built an optional eight speaker audio system with an 8-channel amplifier for it. The result: sound-quality that’s simply unheard of.
Nissan Intelligent Key®
Instead of reaching for your keys, just tap a button on your door handle to lock or unlock Sentra. It’s the magic of the available Nissan Intelligent Key®.
Want to reply to a text message? No need to reach for your phone. Sentra’s optional Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant[*] keeps you connected through voice recognition technology. Or use the available Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System[*] to make a call without diverting your attention.

Best-in-Class 34 MPG[*] Combined Mileage
For 2013, we completely redesigned Sentra’s powertrain. It now comes with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, and a smooth-shifting Xtronic CVT® that’ll handle the passing lane as easily as the parking garage. But power is just the start. Every part—from its twin valve timing system to its beehive-shaped springs—is built for fuel efficiency. Best-in-Class 34MPG combined[*] fuel efficiency, to be precise.
Next-generation Xtronic CVT
Nissan’s next-generation Xtronic CVT® guarantees Sentra is always running in the right gear. That means better fuel efficiency[*], smooth acceleration, and seamless shifting.
Eco Pedal Indicator
Get better mileage just by changing your driving habits. The all-new Sentra is equipped with an Eco Pedal Indicator that lets you know when you’re driving efficiently, and helps you smooth things out if it detects you might be using more fuel than necessary.
Sentra’s streamlined new body is designed to let air flow over, around, and under more easily, literally creating efficiency out of thin air.
Drive it your way
3 Drive Modes
With three drive modes, whatever your lifestyle or your mood, there’s a Sentra to match. It’s almost like having three cars in one.
Choose Eco Mode to help you maximize
For an ideal blend of efficiency and performance, set the drive mode to Normal.
For maximum responsiveness—and a boost
of fun— try Sport Mode.
Sentra’s optional RearView Monitor[*] gives you a clearer view of what’s directly behind you. Because it’s nice to have a little back-up when you’re backing up.
Traction Control System (TCS)
When the Traction Control System senses drive-wheel spin, it reduces throttle to help maintain traction. That means more confidence at the wheel, knowing you’ll have better control in slippery conditions, and rounding sharp corners.
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
When you need to stop in a hurry, Sentra’s Anti-lock Braking System pumps the brakes faster than you can, preventing wheel lockup and keeping you in control. So just hit the brakes, focus on steering, and let ABS work its magic.
Brake Assist and Electronic
Brake Distribution (EBD)
Should you ever need to slam on the brakes, Sentra’s Brake Assist will help you come to a quicker stop, by applying maximum braking force. If you’ve got passengers in the back, EBD will detect the added weight and apply the right amount of pressure to the rear brakes too.
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)
Standard on all Sentra trims, VDC[*] takes ‘smart’ to a new level. By monitoring your driving habits, the system can apply brake pressure, and control engine power when it detects sudden over, or under steer.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Easy-Fill Tire Alert
Forgot to check your tires before leaving for that road trip? Not to worry. Sentra’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System[*] warns you when tires aren’t properly inflated. And when you stop to fill them up, the Easy-Fill Tire Alert[*] will tell you—with a friendly beep—when they've got enough air.
