The 2019 Nissan Sentra is coming completely new. After six years of production, the current model will be replaced by a completely new version, which is about to bring many novelties. The original version of this famous nameplate came in 1982. During these 36 years of production, we have seen seven generations of it.
The current model is present since 2012. Characterized by a spacious interior, this sedan is one of the bestsellers in the class, thanks to the affordable price as well. For the next year, the company has prepared numerous changes.
The new model will come with plenty of novelties. A completely new design will include things like a new platform, styling, interior design etc. Changes under the hood are also expected. The new generation has been in the final stage of testing and should come somewhere in the second half of the year.
2019 Nissan Sentra redesign
Just like every redesign, this one will also include all those common changes. First of all, there is a new architecture to come. Count on similar proportions. On the other side, we should see a slightly longer wheelbase, which would provide even more space inside, especially for rear passengers. Finally, count on some nice weight reduction, which will provide better handling and dynamics. Finally, there is a new styling. The new design language from Nissan will be applied, something similar to what we have seen recently on the new Altima.
The interior design will also come completely new. This sedan has been characterized by spacious cabin so far, and we expect the same from the new generation. Besides plenty of space, we will see a new cabin design, with new higher-quality materials, new dashboard layout etc. Finally, expect more standard equipment, including some new safety systems.
2019 Nissan Sentra features
Although the trim level organization is about to remain pretty much the same, the 2019 Nissan Sentra should come far more equipped. There should be five trim levels in the offer. Those are S, SV, SR, SR Turbo and SL. Compared to the current model, we expect more equipment already in the base package. Some of the most notable novelties should be things like bigger touchscreen, leather upholstery, heated seats, Bluetooth, USB, smartphone integration, rearview camera and several new safety systems. Upper trims will gradually add more and more standard features. Once again, we are expecting to see a hi-performance Nismo version as well. This model comes with various mechanical and visual tweaks, in order to provide best possible performances.
2019 Nissan Sentra engines
When it comes engines, it looks like a familiar 1.8-liter will continue as the base engine. This unit is currently good for about 130 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. With such modest numbers, acceleration isn’t on a high level. So, we are expecting some optional, more potent unit in the offer as well.
According to some reports, it could get a revised version of another familiar engine from Nissan’s lineup. It is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit which should deliver around 180 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. The base transmission will be CVT but expect manual gearbox in the offer as well. When it comes to Nismo version, we are expecting some more potent engine under the hood, not just cosmetic changes like last time.
2019 Nissan Sentra release date and price
The 2019 Nissan Sentra will come somewhere in the second half of the year. However, we still don’t know a more precise launch date. When it comes to the price, base models should go around 18.000 dollars.
Competition remains the same. There are numerous models like Toyota Corolla, VW Jetta, Honda Civic and many others.
