First Drive Review: 2013 Nissan Sentra
Introduction: 2013 Nissan Sentra
Cars like the 370Z and GT-R may get all the glory, but Nissan knows that it can pin the success of the company on its halo vehicles. Instead, it takes machines like Altima, Sentra, and Versa to keep people shuffling in and out of their local dealerships. Recently, the Altima received a fresh redesign which sees it competing head-to-head with the best that the segment has to offer. Soon, the Versa will get a similar treatment but for now it's time to focus on an all-new 2013 Nissan Sentra.
Now in its seventh generation, the Sentra remains a strong selling machine that appeals to entry-level shoppers. Over 4.3 million have been sold to date, and studies show that one in every three car buyers will be searching for a compact car in the year 2015.
To make sure those car buyers are thinking about the Sentra, Nissan went to work on the inside, outside, and under the skin of the new Sentra. The result is a stylish four door that puts forth a strong value proposition and returns great fuel economy.
