Q1 2023 Sentra Sales: Down 17% from 40% Drop in ’22
Nissan is re-vamping the 8th iteration of the Sentra for 2024. To give the range a new look, they have remodeled and made improvements to its powertrain capabilities, making it more energy-efficient than ever before, although no up-to-date numbers are yet available.
Nissan will provide the 2024 Sentra in three configurations when it hits the market in late summer seasons: S, SV, and SR. They’ve incorporated a modified V-motion grille, a refurbished front fascia, revamped lower bumper design into each model and new headlights to boot. The SV trim includes a fresh SV Premium Package that comes outfitted with a 8-speaker Bose audio set-up, side-mirror turn signals, as well as Intelligent Around View Monitor from Nissan. A brand-new 16-inch wheel design is also available with the SV trim.
The Sentra SR gets a few more modifications beyond just the new styling, which Nissan highlights with dark chrome accents on the sporty edition. The back got an updated lower fascia plus a new 18-inch wheel design. Inside, the SR includes heated front seating as standard, and a fresh red-orange accent stitching that is in line with what Nissan gives the Altima SR and Frontier PRO-X and PRO-4X.
The SR really stands out, somewhat even more so with its distinguishable red tinge badging on both the front and rear. Also available are the two-tone paint option, showcasing a black roofed exterior. This comes with the Aspen White Tricoat shade, as well as Monarch Orange Metallic, Electric Blue, or the new Atlantic Gray.
The all-new 2024 Nissan Sentra comes with an array of technologies, making it a must-have for safety conscious drivers. Every model is standard equipped with Safety Shield 360, which elevates the driving experience with six advanced driver-assist functions. In detail, this includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Automatic Braking, Blind Spot Monitoring, and High Beam Assist. Forward Collision Warning also comes as standard, with optional Intelligent Cruise Control available for added convenience.
Hidden below the common paneling lies a fresh Xtronic unceasingly diverse transmission. This is connected with the Sentra’s 2.0-liter inline four motor and has an extra stop-start capacity. The engine creates 149 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque.
Nissan has declared that modifications boost the potency of the Sentra, however exact EPA figures will be published at a later point. For 2023, the Sentra records 29 mpg in urban areas, 39 mpg for highways, and 33 mpg all together. The Sentra SR attains ever so slightly lesser ratings measuring as follows: 28 mpg city, 37 mpg on highways, and 32 mpg on average.
It is yet to be revealed how much the 2024 Sentra will cost when it hits dealers. This information is estimated to come out around the same time as fuel efficiency ratings. The 2023 Nissan Sentra has a starting price of $21,145 (inclusive of a $1,095 destination charge). the SR model for this year is listed at $24,035. Not much of an increment is assumed to apply to the cost of the forthcoming version.
Nissan Sentra figures after 2021 plummeted by almost 40% reaching a dismal 77,124 sales, becoming one of the lowest in over 10 years. Unfortunately, sales for 2023 have dropped 17 percent in the first quarter in comparison to last year, suggesting the updates may not be enough to impede or counter the rapid decrease in popularity.
