Inside, premium materials and metal accents give the Sentra an upscale feel. Standard features include 6-way adjustable driver's seat, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, USB ports and remote keyless entry. Power everything has become expected in this category, and the Sentra comes so equipped.
The FE+ S is fuel-efficiency oriented and comes with low-rolling resistance tires and a rear spoiler. The SV offers optional "smart" headlamps, satellite radio, push-button ignition, NissanConnect with mobile apps, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. A touch-screen navigation system with voice recognition is also available. The system also allows smartphone integration, Pandora internet radio, hands-free texting and a rearview monitor. The optional Premium package includes a power sunroof and a Bose stereo with eight speakers.
The SR trim includes 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lamps and unique exterior touches like a special grille and side spoilers. The top of the lineup, the SL, makes the upgraded stereo standard, as is the leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather seats with heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and fog lamps.
The Sentra's trunk capacity is impressive. At over 15 cubic feet, it rivals some midsize sedans. Meanwhile, safety features include standard anti-lock brakes and traction control as well as frontal and side-impact airbags. Also, SR and SL trims now include rear disc brakes standard.
