The 2019 Nissan Sentra is back for another year as the car for the people. This compact sedan has everything the modern driver needs: enough space for five passengers plus their stuff, plenty of technology and safety with lots of available upgrades, and all the horsepower it needs to get you where you're going on time. Making it even better, it's pretty easy on both your wallet in the price tag and at the pump.

The Perfect Ride for...

Car buyers looking for everything a new car has to offer at an affordable price. For years now, the Sentra has been synonymous with affordability and value. Nissan has kept that going this year with a starting price tag of just $17,790.* Despite the price, buying a Sentra means you still get all of the comfort and safety amenities you would expect in a 2019 model year vehicle.

Drive & Handling

Thanks to Nissan’s history of automotive engineering evolution, this year’s Sentra gets unexpected performance by combining a lightweight body with a more-than-capable powertrain. Drivers can enjoy 130 horsepower from the base model’s 1.8-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine. Plus, Nissan’s Continuously Variable Transmission maintains useful RPM levels for whatever you need your Sentra to do, whether it’s passing a slower car or cruising on the open road. This means you get great performance when you want it without sacrificing fuel efficiency. The 2019 Sentra’s money-saving EPA-estimated fuel rating begins at 27 city mpg and 35 highway mpg for the Sentra S when equipped with a manual transmission.**

The 2019 Sentra also comes in upgraded performance models for those that feel the need for speed. The SR Turbo burns up the roads with a 1.6-liter direct injection gasoline turbocharged engine, and the high-performance Sentra NISMO® includes that same turbo engine with NISMO-tuned suspension and steering, as well as a super-slick NISMO aerodynamic body kit and interior with signature red trim.

Key Features

Wireless Tech

You can easily enjoy content on your smartphone or tablet using the Sentra's standard Bluetooth® or available USB connection, or you can sync your device to stream more than 30 million songs available on Pandora®, Spotify®, or any other streaming service. If talk “radio” is more your style, you can stream thousands of podcasts covering a variety of subjects from the latest political discourse to hot celebrity gossip. Plus, all of these entertainment options are easy to control with either the illuminated steering wheel-mounted audio controls, hands-free voice controls, Siri® Eyes Free, or the 5-inch color LCD display. Available Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® mean even further integration, so that you can seamlessly access the features of your cell phone on the go.

Safety Tech

Nissan engineers have packed tons of tech features into the Sentra’s compact frame, especially when it comes to safety. The Sentra’s available Nissan Intelligent Mobility system uses an arsenal of sensors to actually see other cars and potential hazards on the road. Blind Spot Warning can see other vehicles in the next lane, and it will sound an alarm if the driver activates the turn signal and it senses a potential collision. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert does the same thing when the Sentra is backing out of a parking space if it senses an oncoming vehicle or pedestrian. Looking ahead, the sensors can detect obstacles in front of the vehicle and can stop the vehicle to avoid a collision using Automatic Emergency Braking or maintain interval distance with the car ahead using Intelligent Cruise Control.

Alternative Options

Need something that's a bit bigger but isn't too bulky? Look no further than the versatile Nissan Pathfinder. On the other hand, if you want sporty styling, the latest tech features, and a surprisingly large amount of power for a compact car, the Nissan 370Z® is everything a sports car should be—and more.
