Nissan’s all-new 2013 Sentra, was unveiled on Friday with a cut out in horsepower, engine size and weight in the interests of better fuel economy.
Lets just check out what’s inside the the all new 2013 Nissan Sentra.
A Range of Models
The 2013 Nissan Sentra is offered in a selection of well-equipped S, FE+ S, SV, FE+ SV, SR and SL trim levels. All models come with standard Xtronic CVT, except the base Sentra S that is available with a choice of 6-speed manual or CVT.
Engine and torque-
It was expected that, the new Sentra will feature a all-new engine and CVT transmission. Now displacing 1.8-liters, Sentra’s advanced DOHC 4-cyinder engine offers a longer stroke than typical engines in its class, which would result in improved combustion speed and efficiency. The engine is equipped with a twin Continuously Variable Timing Control (CVTC) system which modulates both the intake and exhaust valve opening time (similar to that used on the flagship Nissan Maxima).
The engine’s internal friction has been reduced, which improves the efficiency In addition, the valve springs are shaped similar to a beehive, with a smaller diameter towards the top – reducing an undisputed weight, improving valvetrain efficiency and smoothing engine operation. The engine is rated at 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque.
The new engine is mated with a new-generation Xtronic CVT (a 6-speed manual is available in the base Sentra S model). The new CVT features a host of enhancements that contribute to an improvement in fuel efficiency and lower the vehicle weight. It also offers a wider gear ratio of 7.3:1 through use of a sub-planetary gear and smaller pulleys, resulting in high-speed fuel efficiency at low RPM and responsive acceleration. Fuel economy is rated at 30 MPG-City, 39 MPG-Highway and a class-leading 34 MPG combined with the CVT.
We have much to explore outside, Sentra’s all-new design is elegant, modern and refined, reflecting a “professional” character targeted at upward buyers who aspire to drive something more premium than some of the other designs in the whole segment. It adopts Nissan’s bold new signature trapezoid-shaped grille and large wraparound headlights with LED accents – the only sedan in the compact segment to offer them as standard equipment. In the rear, LED taillights are also standard, which complements the sophisticated styling.
I should also bring it to your notice that sentra’s beltline has been lowered and a new character line has been added that starts from the front fenders, along the sides, and finishes at the sculpted taillights and trunklid, giving the new Sentra a more aggressive look and is enhanced outward, visibile enough for passengers. Other exterior features include chrome door handles and accents, available heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals, and available sport front and rear fascias and rear spoiler.
we have much waiting for us in the Interior’s, a high-quality interior design are made with materials not usually found in compact vehicles, including soft-touch instrument panel and driver’s door armrest, available leather-appointed seating and available Maple wood-tone trim. Along with offering mid-size roominess in a compact-size exterior, the intuitive interior layout emphasizes driver control and class-leading seat comfort for all occupants. The instrument panel curves out towards the doors and features Fine Vision electroluminescent gauges that are backlit even in daylight, providing a high-quality look that is also easy to read.
Standard interior features include 6-way manual driver’s seat, 4-way manual front passenger’s seat, front and rear door pockets, front center console with padded armrest and cupholders, rear seat armrest with cupholders, air conditioning with in-cabin microfilter, tilt and telescopic steering column, power windows with driver’s one-touch auto up/down with auto reverse, power door locks with auto-locking feature, two auxiliary 12-volt power outlets, remote keyless entry and remote trunk and fuel-filler door releases.

Other available systems include a 6-speaker AM/FM/CD system with 4.3-inch color display, USB connection for iPod and other compatible devices and a Bose Premium audio system with 8 speakers and an amplifier that has been specially tuned to either the cloth or leather interior for best performance.
