It will be the successor to the 2014 Nissan Sentra, a comfortable family car with plenty of room in the back seat and a decent engine to power you to speeds just below 125 mph. There are, however, expected changes with the 2017 Nissan Sentra over its predecessor, though you should not be expecting a hatchback Sentra. It will still be a family car with moderate engine capabilities.
2017 Nissan Sentra Design
There is speculation, though, of improvements to the overall design, both in the interior and exterior. With Nissan’s release of the new Pulsar, there’s speculation of a similar approach to the design exterior. It will adopt very dynamic lines, as opposed to the smooth body of its predecessor, making it stand out a bit more. It will also adopt the V-shaped grille at the front and have the headlights reshaped to fit the hood. The tail lights might also get a retouch, with a boomerang design, protruding out from the back and ending along the side.
In the interior, the seats might receive an upgrade to sports seats like the Pulsar. Although this is doubtful since it is still targeted to families and not rally drivers. But there’s going to be new front seat lower cushions. What’s guaranteed is the addition of more gadgets and options inside. With the increase of 4G enabled vehicles, the 2017 Nissan Sentra might enjoy a decent data connection and an improvement of the various features included.
2017 Nissan Sentra Under the Hood
Under the hood we might find some hidden surprises although there has been no mention of what to expect. The current model only has 1.8 liter, four-cylinder engine capable of delivering just 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque, which is not so bad as compared to other cars in the same category released in 2014. It can be driven manually with a six-speed gearbox or automatically with a continuous variable transmission. We should expect greater engine power in the upcoming 2017 Nissan Sentra, as more manufacturers are paying attention to the need for speed, even for the average family man, or woman.
Nissan have always managed to pull a feat, by producing well performing vehicles at affordable prices and we hope this policy will be maintained with the Nissan Sentra 2017. While some people opt for the flashy exotic cars that end up costing the both arms and legs, a wise buyer could choose to buy the 2017 Nissan Sentra which promises to be just as well performing, in the long-run, with considerations of fuel economy and buying price. Do not be fooled by the recent fall in oil prices and dismiss fuel economy as a factor, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
