2013 Nissan Sentra | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Now, It’s been more than 6 and a half years since the Nissan Sentra compact sedan received a major overhaul. The small car landscape has changed dramatically since then, with hot new offerings emerging from all corners. So while the Sentra continues as one of Nissan’s best selling cars, it’s been well past due for a redo. Nissan was keenly aware of this, and the all new 2013 Nissan Sentra is part of a five model assault designed to overhaul the automaker’s lineup and battle the competition.

Fuel economy is a prime selling point in the compact segment, so Nissan reduced the new Sentra’s weight and deployed a more efficient powertrain to boost the car’s MPG numbers. The 2013 Sentra’s chassis is some 150 pounds lighter than the outgoing car, despite increases in key dimensions. At 106.3 inches, the new Nissan compact’s wheelbase is six tenths of an inch longer, and overall length has grown by 2.3 inches to 182.1. It’s not all bloat, however, as its height (0.6 inch shorter) and width (1.2 inches narrower) have been trimmed slightly, resulting in a smaller frontal area sculpted to improve aerodynamics. Nissan claims the changes reduced the Sentra’s coefficient of drag from 0.34 to a slippery 0.29.

The redesigned 2013 Nissan Sentra debuted on Friday, with a cut in horsepower, engine size and weight in the interests of better fuel economy. The high performance Nissan Sentra SE-R and SE-R Spec V have been eliminated from the lineup, Nissan confirmed for Neocarsuv. The 2013 Nissan Sentra, which gets a more sophisticated look and upscale touches such as LED accented headlights and taillights, will go on sale in late October. Pricing has not been announced. Nissan characterized the redesign of the Sentra as the “most revolutionary” in the nameplate’s 30 year history. The Sentra targets the Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte and Toyota Corolla, among others.

2013 Nissan Sentra Interior :
The 2013 Sentra adopts Nissan’s new family look trapezoidal front grille with a chrome surround and horizontal bars. Along with its triangular wraparound headlights, it bears more than a passing resemblance to the mugs of the new Altima and Pathfinder. Its headlights come with standard LED running lights, which Nissan claims is a first for the segment. A new character line runs from the front fenders to the standard LED taillights just below the beltline, which is lower than the outgoing car in a nod to increasing visibility. Sportier-looking front and rear fascias and a rear spoiler are also available if you’d like your Sentra to stand out. Overall, Nissan believes the changes lend the 2013 Sentra a more aggressive stance and premium feel.

Sentra’s all new design is elegant, modern and refined, reflecting a “professional” character targeted at upwardly bound buyers who aspire to drive something more premium than some of the other designs in the segment. It adopts Nissan’s bold new signature trapezoid shaped grille and large wraparound headlights with LED accents the only sedan in the compact segment to offer them as standard equipment. In the rear, LED taillights are also standard, which complements the sophisticated styling.

Compared to the previous design, Sentra’s beltline has been lowered and a new character line has been added that runs from the front fenders, along the sides, and finishes at the sculpted taillights and trunklid, giving the new Sentra a more aggressive stance and enhanced outward visibility for passengers. Other exterior features include chrome door handles and accents, available heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals, and available sport front and rear fascias and rear spoiler.

The standard audio system is an AM/FM/CD system with four speakers. Other available systems include a 6 speaker AM/FM/CD system with 4.3-inch color display, USB connection for iPod® and other compatible devices, and a Bose® Premium audio system with eight speakers and an amplifier that has been specially tuned to either the cloth or leather interior for best performance. Also available is SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately) and Bluetooth® Hands free Phone System.

2013 Nissan Sentra Exterior :
Compared with the previous generation Sentra, the 2013 model offers a 0.6 inch longer wheelbase (106.3 inches) and a 2.3 inch longer overall length (182.1 inches). The front overhang is shorter and the rear overhang extended. It is slightly lower in height ( 0.6 inches) and narrower in width ( 1.2 inches) for enhanced aerodynamics, yet offers nearly identical total interior volume (111.0 cubic feet versus the previous 110.8). The coefficient of drag has been significantly reduced to 0.29 from the previous 0.34.

“Sentra has long been known as one of the roomiest sedans in class and the latest iteration is no exception. The fine tuning of its dimensions has created not only extremely well balanced exterior proportions but enhanced rear seat legroom and created a larger, more usable trunk space,” said Castignetti.

Nissan says the new Sentra is lighter by 150 pounds and more fuel efficient, returning up to 40 mpg highway. It comes equipped with a new 1.8 liter engine rated at 130 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. Most Sentras will use a continuously variable transmission. A six speed manual is available in the base S model. From a styling standpoint, the new Sentra looks a lot like the larger 2013 Altima. Trim levels consist of the base model S, SV, SR and top of the line SL.

2013 Nissan Sentra Engine :
The engine’s internal friction has been reduced, improving efficiency. The DLC creates about half the friction of previous coatings. In addition, the valve springs are shaped similar to a beehive, with a smaller diameter towards the top reducing inertia weight, improving valvetrain efficiency and smoothing engine operation. The engine is rated at 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque.

The new engine is matched with a new generation Xtronic CVT® (a 6 speed manual is available in the base Sentra S model). The new CVT features a host of enhancements (versus the previous CVT) that contribute to an improvement in fuel efficiency and lower vehicle weight. It also offers a wider gear ratio of 7.3:1 through use of a sub planetary gear and smaller pulleys, resulting in high speed fuel efficiency at low rpm and responsive acceleration. Fuel economy is rated at 30 miles per gallon City, 39 miles per gallon Highway and a class leading 34 miles per gallon combined with the CVT*.

The new Sylphy gets a 1.8 liter four cylinder engine mated to a CVT; we suspect the Sentra we get here will get the same combo. This of course would mean the new Sentra will lose some displacement relative to the outgoing car, which is powered by a 2.0 liter engine. No surprise, since Nissan did the same thing with the latest Versa sedan, which switched from a 1.8 liter four to a 1.6 liter mill. Expect the downsizing, as well as other improvements, to help the new car return better fuel economy than the 2012 Sentra.

The base 2013 Nissan Sentra is equipped with a 140 hp 2.0 liter four cylinder engine linked to a six speed manual or Xtronic CVT. The uplevel 2013 Sentra SE-R is equipped with a 177 hp 2.5 liter four cylinder engine. The same 2.5 liter engine in the SE-R Spec V churns out 200 hp.

Nissan said the 2013 Sentra Fe+ models will deliver 40 mpg on the highway. The base 2013 Sentra returns 30 mpg in city driving and 39 mpg on the highway, said Nissan. The EPA has not yet posted fuel economy numbers on the 2013 Sentra. The 2012 Nissan Sentra with a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine and six-speed manual transmission returns 24 mpg in city driving and 31 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. Nissan said the changes to the Sentra result in a “13 percent improvement in EPA combined fuel economy.” Source: neocarsuv.blogspot.com, autocarrelease.com.
