The Nissan Sentra has been with us for more than three decades, and now the seventh generation Nissan Sentra, which was introduced in 2012, is now getting a makeover with several additional luxury, comfort and technology upgrades to make this super popular vehicle even better!
From a comfort and technology perspective, the new Sentra will include standard USB connection port, 6-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with 4.3-inch colour display (on SV and SR) and Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System to make driving safer and more comfortable. The Sentra’s luxury upgrades also sees leather-appointed seats and heated front seats being introduced as standard on the Sentra SL. Safety-wise, the Sentra is also including rear disc brakes as standard on the Sentra SR and SL models.

There is also a new appearance package going to be available for the Sentra SV that includes a power sliding moonroof, dual illuminated visor vanity mirrors, 16-inch 10-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels and rear spoiler.
When the new 2015 Nissan Sentra is launched internationally at the end of the year, we are expecting six models, each with a standard 1.8-litre DOHC 4-cylinder engine, as well as next-gen Xtronic transmission (Except on the S 6MT).
There is no clear indication when the new Sentra will arrive in South Africa, but in the mean time you can still take advantage of these great prices on the current Nissan Sentra.
