Sentra fans, you’re going to love this. The first-ever Nissan Sentra NISMO model has been unveiled, and we have all the details. The four-door sedan is the latest member to join the motorsports-inspired NISMO lineup, and we expect it to be a big hit with drivers throughout the Dallas area. Keep reading to find out why.

"For 2017, we're bringing new excitement to Sentra with the Sentra NISMO, which brings driving enthusiasts aftermarket tuner-style performance straight from the factory," said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc.

Underneath the hood, there’s a peppy 188-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharger that makes 177 pound-feet of torque – the same powerplant found in the Sentra SR Turbo. The energetic engine is paired to a choice 6-speed manual transmission. An Xtronic continuously variable automatic is standard. All Sentra NISMO models come with front-wheel drive.

Outside, the car gets fitted with a body kit that adds lower-body parts to the front, rear and side, improving its already aerodynamic design. The front fascia features a dark-chrome grille, dark-chrome door handles, black mirror caps and red trim along the body kit. There are also NISMO badges that only add to the vehicle’s signature style. Four colors are offered: Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, Super Black and Aspen White.

In the cockpit you’ll notice a microsuede-and-leather steering wheel and red-and-black NISMO accents on the push-button starter, leather shifter, instrument cluster and carpets.

Aside from the Sentra NISMO, the car is offered in five other trims: S, SV, SR, SR Turbo and SL. To learn even more about the 2017 Nissan Sentra, please contact us or stop by to see it in person.
