The Nissan Sentra is a solid sedan manufactured by Nissan Motors, the leading automaker in Japan. The Nissan Sentra is usually a rebadged export edition of the Nissan Sunny of Nissan Motors until 2006. Since 2013, Nissan Sentra has been the rebadged export edition of the Japanese Nissan Sylphy, the compact car of Nissan, as the nameplate, the Nissan Sentra is not employed in Japan.
Currently, the Nissan Sentra serves as the compact sedan in the United States, and the base model of the sedan is available at a starting price of $16,430, whereas the models that are crammed with optional features are available at a base price of $24,000. While earlier Nissan Sentra models were subcompact sedans, the Sentra has developed over the years, with the Nissan Versa having restored the Sentra in the admission-level area, and the Nissan Sentra is currently rated as a mid-size sedan by the environmental protection agency of the United States, owing to its interior capacity. It vies with the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla.
The Nissan Sentra was brought in for the 1982 model sedan, with the name Nissan Sunny as the export name for the United States. Several other American countries, such as Brazil, Bolivia, and Chile in sell their models of the Sunny with the name, the Sentra. In Mexico, the initial three generations of the Nissan Sentra were branded as the Tsuru, and the 1994 model of Sentra is still marketed under the name, the Tsuru, having assumed three model replacements, alongside the existing Sentra. Since 2013, the Nissan Sentra has been sold as pulsar in Australia and Sylphy in Japan.
After undergoing several model changes, finally, the Nissan Sentra came into the compact sedan category when the revamped model was introduced during February 2000 as a 2000 year model. When fresh, this revamp was considered a considerable upgrade, when compared to the low-priced economy sedan it replaced. Earlier, the compact category had been engaged by the Altima that moved to the mid-size category during 2001, and its wheelbase continued unchanged from the earlier generation. Furthermore, it should be noted that while previous Nissan Sentra cars were very like their B-series Nissan Sunny twins of the Japanese market, the B15 Nissan Sentra deviated from the B15 Sunny to a great extent. Production changed from Smyrna in Tennessee to Aguascalientes in Mexico, and the Smyrna construction lineup was retooled to construct the Nissan Xterra.
A sample of the 2013 Nissan Sentra was exposed at the auto show in Beijing in 2012. Nissan exposed the seventh generation the Nissan Sentra during August, 2012. The fresh Nissan Sentra is totally redesigned in its interior and exterior design, with the upscale style to appear more like Nissan's other cars, such as the Maxima and Altima, as well as LED accents in the head lamps, LED tail lamps, and a novel electronics and navigation system.
This generation of Nissan Sentra went on sale during early 2013 in Australia and it was sold under the name, the Nissan Pulsar. The sedan was introduced in 2014 in the Russian market, which was equipped with a powerful engine to get the power of 117 HP, and it is mated to a five-speed CVT or manual transmission. The Nissan Sentra that was intended for the Russian market is locally constructed in Izhevsk.
