2013 Nissan Sentra: First Look

Nissan is seriously on a roll. The new 2013 Altima looks great and drives even better. A new, roomier Pathfinder is on its way. And now, they’re showing us photos of the all-new 2013 Nissan Sentra.

The look of the ’13 Nissan Sentra is not your typical econobox. This time around, the Sentra looks a little more elegant and substantial. Thankfully, substantial doesn’t mean heavier; the new Sentra weighs about 150 lb less than the previous model, which helps it earn an impressive fuel economy rating. Nissan says to expect 34 miles per gallon in combined city and highway driving.

The 2013 Sentra’s interior looks nicer, too, and it has the type of connected tech you’d expect. Nissan Connect with hands-free features, Points of Interest by Google, and Google Send to Car are all available. Other options include heated leather seats and a moonroof. LED lights up front and in the back are standard.

Several versions of the Sentra will be offered so shoppers can find just the right flavor to suit their needs. Trim levels include the base S model, a moderately equipped SV model, and a sportier looking SR model. The top-of-the-line SL includes features like 17-inch wheels, fog lights, keyless entry, push-button start, Bluetooth, and satellite radio.

Even the 1.8-liter engine is new, and Nissan says the Constantly Variable Transmission (CVT) has been reworked for better performance and efficiency.

Look for the 2013 Nissan Sentra to go on sale in fall 2012.
