The 2024 Nissan Sentra arrives with updates that span from exterior design changes to new features in its SV grade. Equipped with technological advancements and fuel economy improvements, the latest model will be available in S, SV, and SR grades. Let’s take a closer look at what sets this new iteration apart.
Exterior Design: Sleek Meets Street
Starting from the front, the Sentra’s restyled facade captures attention with an updated V-motion grille and chrome trim. The lower fascia adopts a cleaner look, with vent-like elements pushed to the sides. Furthermore, new headlight designs with black interior bezel elements add a sporty and premium flair.
Moreover, fresh 16- and 18-inch alloy wheel designs add to the dynamic visual presence. The SR grade amps up the athletic vibe with dark chrome accents, red SR badges, and body-colored lower trim strips. The SR even allows for two-tone paint options, providing an individualized touch.
Interior Space: Where Comfort Meets Class
The Sentra’s interior features are where functionality and elegance meet. Space isn’t just abundant—it’s smart. Alongside generous storage options, you’ll find a D-shaped steering wheel, round air vents inspired by the Nissan Z sports car, and Nissan’s Zero Gravity front seats for enhanced comfort. The rear seats don’t skimp on luxury either, offering an optional armrest with cupholders for ultimate convenience.
Cabin Amenities: Elevating the Experience
Upgrades in the SV Premium package include an 8-speaker Bose Premium Audio System, Intelligent Around View Monitor, and turn signal indicators on the exterior mirrors. Additional amenities in the SR grade include heated front seats and dual-zone automatic climate control, among others.
In-Cabin Tech: Connectivity at Your Fingertips
From the standard 7-inch touchscreen to the upgraded 8-inch screen in the SV and SR grades, Sentra has you covered. Connectivity options include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth, ensuring you’re always in touch and in tune.
Performance: Engine and Transmission
The heart of the Nissan Sentra is a responsive 2.0-liter inline-four engine boasting 149 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. The new Xtronic CVT and Idle Stop Start feature work in unison to improve fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance. This powertrain arrangement is typical for this class, aligning with what the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla offer.
Trim Levels and Packages: Customizable Comfort
From the base S to the sportier SR, Sentra offers an array of features to match your needs. The SV Premium package ups the ante with added luxurious touches, while the SR Premium package aims to impress with additional bells and whistles like a Wi-Fi hotspot and a heated steering wheel.
Driver-Assist Technology: A Suite of Safety
All grades come standard with Nissan Safety Shield 360, which offers six advanced driver-assist systems, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and lane departure warning. Additional options like intelligent driver alertness and intelligent cruise control make for a safer, smoother ride.
Price: Value Meets Luxury
While official pricing has yet to be released, expect competitive price points for each grade, reflecting Nissan’s commitment to offering luxury at an attainable cost. That said, we expect prices to align quite closely to the 2023’s $20,200 starting price.
A Stellar Choice in a Crowded Market
The 2024 Nissan Sentra arrives with several updates, reflecting consumer preferences and current market trends. With design changes, enhanced interior features, and advanced safety technologies, the latest model aims to compete effectively in the compact sedan market. The updated Sentra is expected is available for order and may also be found on dealer lots.
