The 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO is a hot sedan which is predicted to hit the dealers in the end of this year. This compact sedan was spied by some automotive magazines recently. It becomes our trend today because Nissan has unveiled a bit about the concept of this car which will have a turbocharged engine under its hood. Moreover, its chassis has been also upgraded to create sophisticated feels for the drivers. Meanwhile, the designs create some beautiful visual although we just see some camouflaged version in this post. Overall, the body looks like more aggressive and thanks to the upgraded wheels down there. For you information, this car is now heading the production phase.
2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO Reasons
The main reason why Nissan chooses 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO as its new compact sedan is because other flagships can afford this class. For your information, the GT is not young anymore. It also happens for the 370Z. Moreover, the Juke NISMO which is classified as crossover cannot carry all classes itself. Thus, the choice is given for Sentra NISMO whatsoever. For your information, this sedan is expected to repeat the successful story of Sentra SE-R that happened in 1990s ago. Furthermore, this lineup will be a good taste for all current Nissan lineups. In other words, other competitors will have some challenges from Nissan.
2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO Platform
Now, we are going to talk about the platform which is planted with 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO. Actually, the platform is still the same with other lineup of front-wheel drive Sentra. For your information, this platform also follows the 2016 design as modern sedan obviously. Meanwhile, there is a rumor about the upgraded chassis based on the new concept of Sentra NISMO. If this is true, we may see something different especially on the stiffer body of Sentra NISMO later. Moreover, the Brembo brakes will be added on the chassis too. The larger wheel that becomes our expectation on a compact sedan can be seen on this lineup.
2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO Under the Hood
Finally, the powertrain is the most interesting part of this review by the way. Based on the rumors, the engine of Juke NISMO which is a 1.6 L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine will be the standard engine of Sentra Nissan. This engine is not a surprise because it produces 188 horsepower and reaches 215 horsepower at its peak. However, we predict that the engine is not as small as it obviously. We prefer to be a 1.8 L which pumps out 240 horsepower and 240 pounds feet of torque. It is more suitable for 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO obviously.
