Earlier this year, Japanese manufacturer Nissan gave us the Nissan Sentra SR Turbo, and at the Los Angeles Auto Show we got the 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO, the fourth model with the NISMO emblem to hit Nissan dealership floors.
Thanks to a new design and, more importantly, important tuning improvements to the suspension and other components, the 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO is more than ready to take on all comers.
A more aggressive style for the 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO
The 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO, like the other NISMO models in the Nissan range, is immediately recognizable thanks to its aerodynamic package, its larger exhaust and 18-inch wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Red accents are found all over the body of the 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO, as is the case with all other NISMO models.
Inside, one notices the many NISMO emblems, all well as the alcantara finish on the steering wheel. There are also several red accents throughout, such as on steering wheel and gear lever, as well as on the seats and doors. The seats also offer much more lateral support than in a “normal” Nissan Sentra.
A more powerful engine and improved suspension in the 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO
Mechanically, the 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO receives a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine developing 188 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. This engine will send its power to the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission, or a continuously variable automatic transmission. The new NISMO Sentra’s engine is particularly advanced with its variable valve timing, a variable pressure oil pump and its low compression ratio of 10.5: 1.
Under the body, a very complex suspension ensures a perfect connection between the car and the road. Indeed, rear monotube shock absorbers, which are oil and gas-powered at the front, are able to adapt to road and driving conditions, thus ensuring optimal and dynamic handling.
The 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO will be the most powerful Nissan Sentra in the compact sedan’s lineup. In combination with the Sentra SR Turbo and the redesigned 2017 Nissan Sentra, there is something for everyone in the Nissan Sentra range. For more information, contact us today at Red Deer Nissan!
