To keep up with competition, car manufacturers have to launch many variations of their best selling models. This is very important among fans of modified and performance tuned vehicles. One of these is Nissan Sentra. There are many cars with their upgraded models, with engine that produce more power, aggressive design, and revisited interior for better comfort and impression. Nevertheless, Japanese company won’t be late, since 2017 Nissan Sentra Nismo is on the way to make some changes in the class. Predecessor of this vehicle is SE-R model, but it was removed in 2012.

Under the hood of the 2017 Nissan Sentra Nismo is a 1.8-literinline four-cylinder unit. This DOHC engine is naturally aspirated and it is ready to deliver 130 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. This output is distributed through CVT transmission to front wheels, which can make new Sentra Nismo sprint to 60 mph in 9 seconds. Manual gearbox is not an option on Nismo vehicles. But, on the other hand, this kind of car can get turbocharger, which can launch specifications into orbit. For example, sprint would be around 6 seconds and output doubled, to 265 horses. These are great numbers for decent fuel economy of around 30 mpg on the highway.
