Hot 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo is Unveiled in Miami
Nissan is making a big splash in Miami with the reveal of the new 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid and now the hot 2017 Sentra SR Turbo. Both the all-new Rogue Hybrid and Sentra SR Turbo are brand new models added to the Nissan lineup here in the US. What is the new Sentra SR Turbo about?
What’s under the hood?
It starts with what’s under the hood of the new Sentra SR Turbo. It’s powered by a new 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIGTM) turbocharged engine that delivers a 50 percent horsepower increase from the naturally aspirated 1.8-liter Sentra SR powerplant. The Sentra SR Turbo produces 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. That’s 64 more horsepower and 52 more lb-ft of torque than non-turbo 2017 Sentra models.
Lots of performance upgrades to go with the extra power
It also gets a new enhanced body structure, revised steering system, larger front disc brakes, new 6-speed manual or Xtronic transmission with manual mode and unique suspension tuning to handle the increase in horsepower and torque. Nissan says driving enthusiasts can expect improved acceleration from standing starts and highway passing, improved handling and enhanced ride comfort.
Other SR Turbo features
Nissan will offer the SR Turbo with a choice of 6-speed manual gearbox or a unique Xtronic transmission with manual mode. Other features include a power sliding glass moonroof and SR Turbo badging. All Sentra SR models feature LED low beam projector headlights with LED accents, lower body side sill extensions, rear spoiler with integrated LED brake light, fog lights, chrome exhaust finisher, heated outside mirrors with LED turn signals, and unique design 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with 205/50R17 all-season tires.
Inside, the new 2017 Sentra SR Turbo includes sport interior trim, premium sport cloth seats, driver's seatback pocket, heated front seats, a 5.0-inch Advanced Drive-Assist Display (ADAD) and standard Siri Eyes Free Voice Recognition.
The all-new 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo will be available in US showrooms later this fall. Is a new Nissan Sentra NISMO next? Stay tuned.
