NASHVILLE – With the books on the all-new Nissan Sentra compact sedan’s highly successful first year now closed– with sales up 16.6 percent (calendar year-to-date versus 2012 CYTD) – Nissan today announced pricing and an extensive list of refinements and enhancements for the 2014 Sentra. It is on sale now at Nissan dealers nationwide.
“Though totally revised just last year with a ‘class above’ look and feel inside and out, at Nissan we continuously strive to make our great vehicles even better,” said Fred Diaz, divisional vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing, Service & Parts, Nissan North America, Inc. “With Sentra, we looked at every aspect of the vehicle – chassis, handling, quietness, fabrics and other critical customer touchpoints – and dialed things up to a higher level of refinement.”
The evolution of Sentra includes a wide range of changes designed to provide an even more rewarding driver and passenger experience. For example, Sentra’s available NissanConnect with Navigation now includes all-new NissanConnect Apps smartphone integration for iPhone and Android, allowing the user to connect with Pandora, iHeartRadio, Facebook and more. It also has improved voice recognition and one-shot destination entry. In addition to the new app integration, the NissanConnect™ with Navigation system’s capabilities now include SiriusXM Travel Link (fuel prices, movie times, stock updates and weather; SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately).
The 2014 Sentra’s performance enhancements include:
A reduction of engine noise into the passenger cabin through use of improved body insulation and sealing, along with a change in engine mount layout
More responsive steering feel, through use of a quicker steering ratio (16.3:1 versus the previous 18.5:1) and retuning of the Electric Power Steering (EPS) system
Body roll has been reduced through use of retuned spring, shocks and thicker stabilizer bars (22.0 mm front versus previous 18.0 mm, 24.6 mm rear versus previous 21.7 mm)
Ride comfort has been increased through improved body motion control, due to shock absorber damping force tuning
And acceleration feel has been enhanced through retuning of the Xtronic CVT®, including the addition of a D-Mode step shift program
Seat comfort has been improved with new seat frame spring tuning and revised foam density and shaping, additional lateral support and a feeling of seat plushness. In addition, a sliding front armrest is now standard on the SL grade and added to SV Driver Package and SR Driver Package. New front seat lower cushion storage pockets are standard on all models and an Auto Hazard Warning Signal is added for all models.
Once again for 2014, Sentra offers an elegant, modern and refined exterior, reflecting a “professional” character targeted at upwardly bound buyers who aspire to drive something more premium than some of the other designs in the segment. It features Nissan’s bold signature trapezoid-shaped grille and large wraparound headlights with standard LED accents and a 0.29 coefficient of drag. In the rear, LED taillights are also standard, which complements Sentra’s sophisticated styling.
Sentra’s refined look continues inside with a high-quality interior design featuring materials not usually found in compact vehicles, including a soft-touch instrument panel and door armrests, available leather-appointed seating and available Maple wood-tone trim. Along with offering ample roominess in a compact-size exterior, including an outstanding 37.4 inches of rear seat legroom, the intuitive interior layout emphasizes driver control and outstanding seat comfort for all occupants.
Sentra utilizes a fuel-efficient 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine, which along with the next-generation Xtronic CVT with sub-planetary gear, helps deliver 34 miles-per gallon combined highway/city fuel economy, a more than 415-mile real-world driving range**. Sentra FE+ models achieve 40 mpg on the highway. Other CVT-equipped Sentra models are rated at 39 mpg on the highway. All CVT models achieve an EPA rated 34 mpg combined (city and highway, 50-state emissions).
The 2014 Nissan Sentra is offered in seven well-equipped trim levels: S 6MT, S CVT, FE+ S, SV, FE+ SV, SR and SL.
