Many people are hopeful that 2024 Nissan Sentra would be coming with improvements, at least from the powertrain. Although the sedan has been known to have smooth driving experience, it’s not the punchiest sedan ever created. A little bit of power boost won’t hurt and it can definitely help Nissan to sell more of their Sentra.
About the Sentra
Originally, Sentra was designed as an undersized and economical sedan, but it got a redesign job in 2020. The sedan comes with all weather package and Midnight option. Each of the packages has its own perks. The Midnight package has black trim, while the SR trim would be equipped with 18 inch (alloy) wheels, while the all weather package makes the vehicle ‘ready’ for colder areas with colder weather.
The Redesign Plan
Although the 2024 Nissan Sentra won’t get any updates, it’s expected to at least undergoing some minor tweaks to improve the performance. After the last redesign work, the Sentra feels smoother and more responsive – and hopefully, it will remain the same (even improved) in the 2024 model.
In terms of interior, the Sentra is somewhat spacious and roomy although it’s a small sedan. The vehicle is able to accommodate passengers as well as cargo, with the same capacity as the big sedan. Good visibility is one of the main advantages of the Sentra, while comfort is one of the biggest forte of the ride.
For the exterior appearance, there won’t be any significant updates. The basic model will still be coming with 16 inch (steel) wheel and its cover. For the SV Premium, however, the wheels would be 17 inches while the SR will get 18 inches. If you go with the Midnight package, expect getting black badges and exterior trim.
Powertrain and Performance
All the trim models would be running on four cylinder unit with 2.0 liter capacity that is paired with a CVT. It is able to generate 149 hp through the front wheel system. For fuel economy, this model is said to have 29 mpg for the city and 39 mpg for the highways. It has 33 mpg combined.
Even with the basic trim level, you can expect quiet and smooth performance. The sedan has this pleasant and somewhat light feel when cruising down the road in high speed. Expect the interior cabin to have improved features, including climate control system, heated seats (for higher trims), and advanced safe drive assist.
