The Nissan lineup is filled with storied nameplates that have been around for decades, but only the Maxima has been around longer than the Sentra. Last year saw the Sentra enter its eighth generation as an all-new compact sedan, so naturally it has undergone its changes through the years. Getting its start all the way back in 1982, it actually started off in the subcompact classification. It wasn’t until the 2000 model year and the nameplate’s fifth generation that it moved up to the compact sedan segment that the 2021 Nissan Sentra still calls home today. Available right here in the Newport News VA area, we’re stoked to provide this outstanding car.
Fresh off its generational redesign, the Nissan Sentra looks to continue building the reputation it has established. While a two-tone exterior color option available on the SR trim level, which sees Electric Blue Metallic panels joined by a black roof, is the only thing new for 2021, the compact sedan remains an exciting prospect within its segment, one year prior to its 40th anniversary.
Available in three different trim levels, including the S, SV and aforementioned SR grades, the Sentra is powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder powertrain regardless of which trim level you choose. The engine is capable of generating 149 horsepower alongside 146 pound-feet of torque, which is not only plenty of power for its segment but is also an improvement of 20 & 17 percent respectively over the seventh-generation Sentra.
Of course, its powertrain is just one exciting aspect of the 2021 Nisan Sentra. It’s also packed full of outstanding content that is sure to not only make you feel safer on the road but make your experience that much more enjoyable as well. This includes Nissan Safety Shield 360, which is standard across the board and brings a host of driver-assistive safety technologies to your fingertips.
