2018 Sentra S: The Base Trim

Under the hood of the 2018 Sentra S, you’ll get a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, which delivers 124 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. This engine can be found in most Sentra trims, and it works well for your daily, around-town driving. A 6-speed manual transmission comes standard, but an Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) is available for seamless transitions and more efficiency.

The base infotainment system includes a 5-inch touchscreen, four speakers, and Bluetooth® technology for hands-free calling and audio streaming on the go. You can also use the standard rearview camera for confirmation of what’s going on behind you when you need to back up.

Take It Up a Notch: Nissan Sentra SV & SL

2018 Nissan Sentra in Deep Blue Pearl

What will you find in the next level up, the Sentra SV? To start, it makes the Xtronic CVT® standard, so you can benefit from top-notch fuel economy: an EPA-estimated 29 city and 37 highway MPG.1 Your commute will keep you far away from the pump with a fuel economy like that.

To save some time in your daily routine, this trim gives you the Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition. You can enter, exit, and start your car without inserting a key, and if you happen to lock yours in the vehicle by accident, you won’t have to lose any time.

Another level up, the SL trim adds more creature comforts, including leather-appointed seats, a power-sliding moonroof with a tilt feature, and a Bose® 8-Speaker Premium Audio System for crisper, clearer sounds.

Sporty SR & SR Turbo Trims

Upgrade to the SR trim, and you’ll find plenty of sporty touches, including a set of 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels to replace the 16-inch wheels on lower trims. Seats are decked out in premium sport cloth, and the LED low-beam projector headlights with LED accents add a stylish and distinctive touch.

The SR Turbo upgrades function to match the SR’s style. Powering the SR Turbo is a turbocharged 1.6L 4-cylinder engine, good for 188 horsepower, 177 lb-ft, and a more accelerative highway-driving experience. You’ll also get a trim-exclusive CVT with Manual Shift Mode, so you can customize power delivery to meet your needs.

The Performance-Tuned Sentra NISMO 2018 Nissan Sentra interior features

At the highest level is the 2018 Sentra NISMO. On it, you’ll find a set of 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine from the SR Turbo trim. The performance-tuned suspension has structural reinforcements to the chassis to deliver a more dynamic ride, as well as larger brake rotors to help you come to a stop more quickly.

A sportier design unites every aspect of the NISMO, including the chrome exhaust finisher and front/rear fascias designed for aerodynamics and flashing a red stripe. On the interior, the track-inspired design adds race reds to the cabin and Alcantara® upholstery, whose high-friction texture will help keep you in your seat.
