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, the SE-R and SE-R Spec V receive a freshened interior and exterior touting a new headlamp and taillight designs, new sport cloth seat trim, a new 4.3-inch color audio system display, standard interface for iPod and an available in-dash navigation system. Also standard for 2010 are electronic traction and stability control.
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.
Completely redesigned for 2013, the excellent new Nissan Sentra feels less like a compact car and more like a downsized mid-size sedan. The look is substantial and mature, the interior is refined in look and feel, and from front to trunk it's downright roomy. The growing number of tech-dependent drivers will appreciate a robust and intuitive NissanConnect infotainment package with cool Google, Pandora and text messaging features, and anyone who hasn't won the free-gas-for-life lottery will appreciate the Sentra's class-leading combined city/highway fuel economy of 34 mpg. And while it's neither as fun to drive as a Mazda3, nor as quiet and comfortable as a Chevy Cruze, the new Nissan Sentra rides and handles better than most buyers need it to.
