2017 Nissan Sentra Nismo Glendale Heights IL
If you’re going to get a new car, you want one you can be excited about. And what’s more exciting than a compact car outfitted with performance features and powerful engine to get you zooming along the highway and around tight corners? The 2017 Nissan Sentra Nismo has been outfitted with performance parts from the Nissan Nismo Motorsports technologies, allowing it to have more road control and improved stability for an even more exhilarating ride, while still offering up a low starting cost.
So what do you want to know about the 2017 Nissan Sentra Nismo? The model is the top trim level for the Sentra lineup, which may be surprising considering how affordable the model is. The starting MSRP for the Nismo is just $24,990 and it’s one of three trims that have the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine. This makes it among the top performers based on power output alone, but then it adds on Nismo-sport tuned suspension and electronic power-steering designed to work in conjunction with the turbo.
Under the hood is a 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers up to 188 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, providing more than 30 horsepower above the standard trims in the lineup. Paired with it is a standard Xtronic CVT or optional manual.
You don’t want a powerful engine without improved driving dynamics overall. The Nismo has monotube rear dampers and stiffer springs for improved handing, electronic power steering specifically designed to be paired with the engine and the Nismo aerodynamic body kit for a swifter feel when taking curves.
Is efficiency your top concern when looking for a performance option? Nissan believes life is about balance, and the turbocharged engine happens to provide that. The model earns an EPA-estimated 25 city and 31 highway mpg rating thanks to the standard Xtronic CVT with manual shift mode.
The Nissan Sentra Nismo impresses with performance
