Benefits of Driving a 2013 Nissan Sentra Sedan

The new Sentra is better-looking than ever and more fuel efficient than ever. Even in the base trim, the Sentra is well-equipped. At the top of the lineup, Nissan includes many premium touches, such as a touch-screen audio system with Bluetooth, 'Intelligent Key' entry and dual-zone climate control. All this comes in at less than $20,000.

What's new for 2013?

The 2013 Sentra has been completely redesigned. Riding on top of a brand-new platform and powered by a brand-new engine, the new Sentra has become a true competitor in the compact sedan market.

Model Strengths

  • handsome new styling
  • roomy interior
  • premium tech options

Model Review

For 2013, Nissan placed fuel economy as a high priority. To that end, a brand-new 1.8L 4-cylinder engine debuts. It makes 130 horsepower and 128 lb-feet of torque. Both a 6-speed manual transmission and a continuously variable (CVT) transmission are available. The best part of the new engine is that it helps the Sentra return 30 mpg city and 39 mpg highway fuel economy numbers.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
