All-New 2013 Nissan Sentra Moves Up In Style, Sophistication, Refinement And Range With Up To 40 MPG Highway And 34 MPG Combined Fuel Economy

DALLAS, Aug. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- 

  • All-new lightweight design saves up to 150 pounds
  • New 1.8-liter engine and next-generation Xtronic CVT® with sub-planetary gear for optimal performance and efficiency
  • Best-in-class combined fuel economy of 34 MPG*
  • Sophisticated new design with high-end details such as LED accented headlamps and taillamps

Nissan's all-new 2013 Sentra, unveiled here today, continues the brand's product onslaught as the third of five all-new vehicles being introduced in a 15-month period.

Like the recently unveiled Nissan Altima and Pathfinder, the redesign of Sentra focuses on class-above design standards inside and out, as well as efficiency in engineering.  The new Sentra is 150 pounds – or five percent – lighter than the outgoing model, yet has slightly larger overall dimensions and more interior room.  The lighter and more aerodynamic new Sentra allows Nissan to use a more fuel-efficient 1.8-liter engine, which along with the next generation Xtronic CVT ® with sub-planetary gear helps deliver a 13 percent improvement in EPA combined fuel economy.

With the FE+ models, Sentra achieves up to 40 mpg on the highway.  Other CVT-equipped models are rated at 39 mpg on the highway.  All CVT models achieve a best-in-class* EPA rated 34 mpg combined (City and Highway).

"The 2013 Nissan Sentra is the most revolutionary design in the nameplate's 30-year history, a worthy addition to what is without question the most innovative, highest quality, highest value sedan lineup in Nissan history," said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc.  "With the complete redesign for 2013, Sentra is closer in look and feel to Altima than a typical compact sedan.  Like Altima, the new Sentra offers best-in-segment attributes, such as high fuel economy and easy-to-use connectivity, that offer real customer value and convenience."

The new Sentra has a strong family resemblance to the recently introduced 2013 Nissan Altima, both in exterior and interior styling cues and its "class-above style" against competitive vehicles in the compact sedan segment.
