Changes for the 2011 Nissan Sentra include an increase in city fuel economy and a realignment of some option packages. 2.0 CVT, S and SL trims receive an SE-R style rear spoiler, while anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control are now standard on all trims.
For 2010, Sentra 2.0, 2.0 S and 2.0 SL receive a slight exterior freshening of their hood, front fascia and rear end; Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) is now available on all models. Packaging and option changes, as well as the addition of an optional (and very affordable) navigation system mark the other major changes.
All three trim levels benefit from minor but meaningful upgrades in standard equipment or option packages. The base 2.0 now has a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), the 2.0 S adds a security system and anti-lock (ABS) brakes, the 2.0 SL gets XM Satellite Radio and all gain daytime running lights.
In addition to CVT availability, Nissan's second-smallest sedan is bigger inside and out, as well as more powerful: Specifically, 140 horsepower versus the prior 126. Buyers who crave more assertive performance can wait for the Sentra SE-R, which debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show and goes on sale in 2007.
Nissan has always endeavored to make its compact Sentra sedan look and feel bigger and more upscale than its reasonable price tag suggests. The 2015 Nissan Sentra advances this philosophy by adding more style and performance than its predecessors. With more interior room than a Dodge Dart and more rear-seat legroom than the Ford Focus, the Sentra offers superior comfort for all its occupants while keeping its exterior dimensions tidy and manageable. The Sentra's handsome interior is augmented by its advanced infotainment system that includes NissanConnect, an apps-based platform that permits access to Google and Pandora as well as the ability to manage incoming and outgoing text messages.
