2015 Nissan Sentra SR

The 2015 Sentra SR comes with a 1.8 liter DOHC 16 Valve 4-cylinder engine. It has 120 horsepower, and 128 pound per foot of torque. Now you’re thinking that doesn’t seem like a lot of power. But Nissan makes up for that with the stellar efficiency! The 6 speed manual transmission Sentra SR gets 29 miles per gallon running around the city. And 39 miles per gallon on the highway… Yes I said 39 miles per gallon on the highway… You can drive over 500 miles before you have to fill the tank, makes those road trips seem a lot faster. While you’re driving you’ll be enjoying the space, comfort, and technology Nissan added, in the Sentra SR.

You’ll be driving in absolute comfort in the Sentra SR. It has over 38 inches of head room and over 42 inches of leg room up front. So now that you’re comfortable, it’s time to enjoy the state of the art technology Nissan put in the Sentra SR. The Sentra SR comes standard with Nissan Connect, which has mobile apps, and my favorite the hands-free text messaging assistant with great voice recognition, that keeps your eyes on the road where they belong. Oh and Nissan keeps everything hands free, with the Bluetooth phone system. There are two features that are a must inside the Sentra SR. The Bose premium audio with a color touch screen monitor, and the 8 speakers, with two woofers. Not only do you have a clean crisp sound, The Sentra SR comes with speed-sensitive volume control. The Sentra SR has premium Charcoal Sport Cloth Heated front seats with a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. With a sport silver interior trim and you have the look of a very sophisticated sedan. That elegance continues with the exterior of the Sentra SR.

The style of the 2015 Sentra SR starts up front, with Nissan’s recognizable trapezoidal front grille. Nissan integrated fog lights into the front fascia, to give drivers a low wide projection to increase visibility in tough conditions. Then the 17 inch 7-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels give the Sentra SR an edgy look. That look continues to the rear of the car. The rear spoiler with an integrated led brake light and the chrome exhaust finisher adds the exclamation point to this great car.
