World debut 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo

2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo

The hottest segment of the vehicle market is SUV/CUVs. The second is the compact sedan segment. It only makes sense that the 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo would make its world debut at the 46th annual Miami International Auto show alongside the new 2017 Rogue compact SUV.

Nissan rounds out the Sentra with SV, SR, and SL grades with the new SR Turbo. The SR Turbo is rated at 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque, 50 hp more than the naturally aspirated Sentra and 64 hp more than the non-turbo 2017 Sentra models. This engine is the same direct-injection turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that is in the Nissan Juke.

The millennial anti-theft device

What is a millennial anti-theft device? It is a 6-speed manual transmission, which most millennials don’t own, and many don’t know how to drive. Brand White, Director, Chief Marketing Manager Small Cars at Nissan North America said there an Automatic Xtronic transmission was also available.

The Nissan Sentra is already one of the best-selling compact sedans in the United States. The reasons given for buying the Sentra are dependability and reliability. Building on that foundation the Sentra SR Turbo will add more horsepower and better performance handling.
