Nissan Sentra 2013, slightly powerful but spacious

The 2013 Nissan Sentra lost a good amount of power, but make a lot of interior space and fuel economy. When we have to talk about the 2013 Nissan Sentra to do several explanations, but the most important concerns the relevance of the power held by this vehicle, which does not exceed 130HP. Those who have contributed for Sentra know that this amount is less than what has the current model and compared with that seen in the SE-R 1994 model (which had more), so the omen seems to be pessimistic about the level of market acceptance for the 2013 edition of the Nissan Sentra.

If we have to give a quick reference to the body of the Nissan Sentra 2013 , we are obliged to avail ourselves of the odious comparisons, as the Sentra that brings us to the 2013 has a mix of other sedans undeniable brand, starting with the Altima in front, while the rear sees a similarity with palpable Versa Coincidence? We think not.

Manufacturers have said that the line of the new model is lower than usual for the platform and changed some details like the rear lights (which are now very large and showy) and the wheel arches and other things more. Perhaps the detail that contrast with the idea of “family car” that spoke designers is riding 17-inch wheels, but they look good.

One of the aspects we have valued good way is to include LED lights front and rear lights as standard equipment, in addition to chrome door handles, window moldings and finishes of the trunk like a luxury model, details that definitely makes a difference.

There is no doubt that the amount of space that offers a car is one of the topics most discussed by buyers choosing to renew the car, an example of which is found in the Versa that without power, luxury equipment or other things to be spacious sold over one hundred thousand units in the United States. So, how good the 2013 Sentra is having plenty of space to deliver.

Part of the changes discussed engineers Nissan regarding the 2013 Sentra is that they have shortened the wheelbase by 0.6 inches and the length of the sedan increased by 2.3 inches The result? Now we have a model that delivers 37.4 inches of legroom in the back, thereby overcoming the Hyundai Elantra, Chevrolet Cruze and Honda Civic own, although nearly did not reach the Volkswagen Jetta that delivers 38.1 inches – but has another body.

Nissan has learned the error of other manufacturers to insert material medium or low quality inside therefore preferred to use good quality materials for the interior design, has created a comfortable and modern surroundings and well cared attaching instruments electroluminescent.

Power, the 2013 Sentra problem

The main objective of Nissan was working with the concept of “fuel” in a sedan that is called to be the model par excellence of families, and the results are really good, but have a cost… power.

The 2013 Nissan Sentra has a drag coefficient of 0.34, which improves delivery ostensibly what the current model, is lighter than the Sentra 2012 at 150 pounds and has improved the system with a CVT transmission ratio changes more wide to improvise fuel consumption and performance. Another aid that comprise the 2013 Sentra to save gasoline is the electronic power steering.

The 2013 Sentra is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine instead of the 2.0-liter VVT system adopted although nothing has been said of the direct injection system from Nissan. Now, what we said above, unfortunately the 2013 Sentra 128 pounds of torque, an amount that is second to the Toyota Corolla stays behind with 130HP and potential.

The advantage is that the model has good fuel consumption rates, reaching 30mpg city and 39mpg highway when you have CVT, if we couple the “FE” system reach 40mpg.
