The debut of the Sentra took place at the Moscow Motor Show 2014. This sedan replaced the Tiida model. In Japan, China and Thailand is sold under the name Sylphy. In Australia - as Pulsar sedan. Our Sentra is a counterpart of the model sold in the USA (under the same name). The car offers customers a comfortable and spacious interior, robust chassis design, a robust engine and a roomy trunk. In terms of dimensions, Sentra is one of the leaders in its class: the length of the body is 4625 mm, the length of the wheelbase is 2700 mm, the width is 1760 mm and the height is 1495 mm.
The turning radius of the front bumper is 5.5 m. The curb weight is 1216–1267 kg, depending on the configuration and type of transmission. The car is built on a stretched Nissan platform V, the one that underlies the Micra, Pulsar, Note and second-generation Tiida hatchback models. Adaptation of the model for regional conditions involved an international team. Sentra passed the full cycle of tests on Russian roads, after which the engineers made a number of changes to the design of the car. For example, reinforced floor panels and suspension, retuned in the direction of greater energy intensity shock absorbers, increased ground clearance (up to 155 mm) and a battery of larger capacity.
Also, engineers have improved the cooling of the variator, and in the cabin installed other front seats. Salon Nissan Sentra is designed for 5 seats and boasts an impressive amount of free space both on the front row and in the back, and even passengers with a height of 180 cm can accommodate at the back with sufficient comfort. The interior is quite simple, but ergonomic and of high quality.

The petrol engine, unencumbered by high technology, gives out 117 strengths and 158 N • m and meets the Euro-5 toxicity standards. Traction on the front wheels transmits five-speed manual gearbox or CVT, which has seven virtual steps. In the first case, the car accelerates to a hundred in 10.6 seconds and reaches a limit of 192 km / h. With the variator sedan slower - 11.3 seconds and 184 km / h, respectively. Regardless of the transmission in the combined cycle, fuel consumption is 6.4 l / 100 km, but in the city and on the highway the version with the “mechanics” is a little more economical - 8.1 vs. 8.2 liters and 5.4 against 5.5 liters .
