2013 Nissan Sentra Road Test and Review: Models and Prices
The 2013 Nissan Sentra is sold in S, SV, SR, and SL trim levels, with prices starting at $16,780 for a Sentra S with a manual transmission and topping out at $24,715 for a Sentra SL with every factory-installed option. The sporty SE-R and performance-tuned SE-R Spec V models are discontinued.
My test car was the Sentra SV model, painted Graphite Blue and equipped with a Charcoal cloth interior and a standard continuously variable transmission (CVT). It wore a sticker price of $21,670.
Options on my test car included the SV Driver Package ($1,000 – Bluetooth connectivity, Nissan Intelligent Key with push-button ignition, automatic headlights, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, upgraded audio system with satellite radio and a USB port, Easy Fill Tire Alert system), the Navigation Package ($650 – 5.8-inch color touchscreen monitor with Nissan Connect navigation, real-time traffic and weather, voice recognition technology, Bluetooth streaming audio with Pandora Internet radio, hands-free text messaging assistant, Google POI and Send-to-Car functionality, reversing camera), and the Premium Package ($1,200 – power sunroof, Bose premium audio system, auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass, sun visors with illuminated vanity mirrors and extensions).
To improve the Sentra SV’s appearance, Nissan offers factory-installed 16-inch aluminum wheels ($975) and a set of front fog lights ($310), which would have pushed my test car’s price to $22,955. Personally, I think these items need to be less expensive, and included in the Premium Package.
