2019 Nissan Sentra
The 2019 Nissan Sentra is a small sedan with sufficient interior space, features, and
fuel economy, all offered at a very reasonable price. The Sentra for 2019 is offered in six trim levels; S, SV, SR, SR Turbo, SL, and NISMO. The standard engine is a 124 hp four-cylinder, but the SR Turbo and NISMO get a 188 hp turbo-charged powerplant.
Those who appreciate a zippy car that’s entertaining to drive should look to an S model equipped with the six-speed manual transmission, or the lively SR Turbo or NISMO trims. The NISMO, which is also offered in a stickshift version, shows off with a sculpted body, bolstered racing-type seats, and a specially tuned suspension. NISMO models with the CVT include a manual shifting mode for clutchless shifting.
Like its bigger sibling, the Nissan Altima, the 2019 Nissan Sentra now comes standard
with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The NissanConnect infotainment system is standard with the higher trim levels (SR, SL, and NISMO). It integrates and centralizes your smartphone’s functions on its touchscreen so you can make calls, stream music, and even remotely start your Sentra and unlock its doors.
Nissan makes some nice options available as packages to add to certain trims. There’s an All
Weather Package for those who crave the comfort of heated seats and the luxury and safety factor of heated exterior mirrors. The all-new Sentra SV Special Edition Package includes a number of driver safety features like blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control. The SR Turbo is eligible for the Premium Package, which adds an upgraded Bose audio system, a HomeLink transceiver, leather-trimmed sport seats, a six-way power driver’s seat, and more great amenities.
2019 Nissan Sentra Safety Features
The safety features for the all-new Nissan Sentra helped to earn it a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS. Every Sentra includes six airbags, front and rear crumple zones, an energy-absorbing steering column, buckle creases in the hood, steel door beams, and anti-lock brakes. Emergency braking comes with automatic transmissions. On the upper trim levels, you can expect to have a rear-view camera, blind-spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control.
2019 Nissan Sentra Utility & Technology
Even though the Sentra is part of the subcompact sedan segment, it still has substantial
trunk space (15.1 cubic feet). The center console and cupholders may be basic in design, but they are more than sufficient for the driver and passengers’ needs.
The touch-screen NissanConnect infotainment system is faster than ever before, with complimentary head unit software and map updates. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are now standard, as are two USB ports (two more are available for the rear seat). For those looking for more improved audio options, a nine-speaker Bose audio system is available.
