Ken Kcomt, Nissan Director, Product Planning, on the 2016 Nissan Sentra

Ken Kcomt, Nissan Director, Product Planning talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, Driving the Nation about the 2016 Nissan Sentra.

There’s a reason the Sentra double paced the industry growth of vehicles – 38 miles per gallon (mpg) starting at under $17,000! How can that be? Kcomt walks us through the new 2016 Sentra highlights such as acoustic windshield, dash insulator and other additions to create a quieter experience.

You can see the radar in the Sentra for the predictive forward collision warning that Kcomt talks about in the video. This technology, first introduced in the Murano, allows the car to see two vehicles ahead and warn the driver of cars slowing down ahead of them.
