2018 Nissan Sentra: The Sedan with Attitude


It is a good thing that you can expect improvements and updates for the upcoming 2018 Nissan Sentra. Sentra has been known as the classy sedan type that has been neglected by Nissan for several years – Nissan seems to have such a tendency for such a thing, right? – but it is a good thing that even Nissan finally realizes the good potential that Sentra can deliver. And with some updated work due, hopefully, they will be able to boost sales and make people interested.


Nissan has created some plans for the new 2018 Nissan Sentra which includes a redesigned look, a new and better NISMO type, and also the turbocharged engine. Of course, the changes should be subtle and not too much so it seems that Nissan won’t overdo it. Yes, they are planning a redesign project but not the significant one and definitely not the grandeur type. With the new model and refreshed touchup, the Sentra will look like Altima or Maxima. The changes won’t only happen on the exterior but also in the interior.


The company hasn’t said much, especially making official comments about the kind of updates happening to the design. But it is safe to assume that the new Sentra will definitely look great even without the major updates. For the interior cabin, there will be some updates that will improve the comfort, access, and performance of the vehicle. Hopefully, Nissan won’t change the standard features that are already available. Such features like the auto headlights, air condition, 16 inch wheels, keyless entry, the steering wheel with tilt and telescope ability, and some other option packages. All these features have already been good so it will be a great idea if Nissan can improve the features instead of reducing it.


The 2018 Nissan Sentra will be coming with different trims, like the SL Premium Package and the SR Technology Package. The engine will be coming with four cylinder 1.8 liter capacity that is delivering 130 hp of power. For the NISMO and SR Turbo, the engine will be a four cylinder turbocharged 1.6 liter engine delivering 188 hp of power. The basic trim is using the manual six speed transmission as the standard and the CVT for the optional, while the higher sporty trim will be using either the tuned CVT or the manual six speed transmission. Hopefully, the new 2018 Nissan Sentra will be as promising as expected.
