Nissan’s Sentra has been one of its most notable vehicle offerings since it was first produced in the early 1980s. The Sentra has come a long way: in 2013, the Sentra entered into its seventh generation. Although the 2015 Nissan Sentra has not been released yet, the auto industry is abuzz with excitement about the 2015 Nissan Sentra NISMO. The Sentra NISMO concept was first debuted in late 2013 at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The new Sentra maintains many of the old characteristics that Sentra fans are used to, but also introduces some radical new elements that will excite people that were previously not interested in this kind of car.
The 2015 Nissan Sentra NISMO Overview
NISMO stands for Nissan Motorsports, Nissan’s motorsports division. Nissan has already produced NISMO models of some of their more popular vehicles like the Juke, 370Z, and GT-R. The biggest changes that vehicle enthusiasts will notice on the 2015 Sentra NISMO are the engine upgrades, the redesign of the Sentra’s exterior, and the changes to the seats and trim on the interior.
Under The Hood of the 2015 Nissan Sentra NISMO
For the 2015 Sentra NISMO, Nissan adopted the engine technology found on the Juke NISMO, but made it better. The 2015 Sentra NISMO has a 240 horsepower, 16-valve direct injection gasoline engine. The displacement has been improved from the 1.6 liters found on the Juke NISMO’s engine to 1.8 liters, which increases speed and performance. The 2015 Sentra NISMO uses a six-speed manual transmission to change gears.
The Exterior and Interior Appearance of the 2015 Sentra NISMO
When you take a look at the 2015 Sentra NISMO, you will know that it is not a normal Nissan Sentra. The normal silver grille on the Sentra has been changed into a black grille to make the vehicle look more exciting. LED accent lights, running lights, and headlights are all standard on the 2015 Sentra. To give the 2015 Sentra NISMO a more aerodynamic look, its fenders are flared out and its grilles are wider.
On the inside, the sporty, aerodynamic theme of the 2015 Sentra NISMO is continued. The 2015 Sentra’s black leather seats are wrapped with Alcantra suede, giving the 2015 Sentra a very sleek look. The seats themselves have been changed to Recaro “Sportser” bucket seats instead of the standard seats found on the Sentra. The center of the new Sentra’s steering wheel has a red stripe at the top, which helps set it apart from the crowd.
The 2015 Nissan Sentra NISMO will be a high quality offering in its sedan class when it is released. With a fierce, sporty exterior, an upgraded engine, and a comfortable interior, the Sentra NISMO will be sure to capture the attention of people that are fans of Nissan as well as people that are unfamiliar with their offerings.
