2017 Nissan Sentra: S vs. SV vs. SR vs. SR Turbo vs. SL vs. NISMO Chicago IL
The Nissan Sentra has long been an affordable, stylish option in the compact class. While the 2017 model year is a carryover from the redesign of 2016, it features four all-new trim levels, the 2017 SR Turbo and the 2017 NISMO (Nissan Motorsports), to go along with the SR Midnight Edition and the SR Turbo Midnight Edition. Besides reviewing the benefits of these all-new trim options, we'll look at what is in store for the tech-savvy compact with its base S trim, as well as its SV, SR and SL trims.
The 2017 Nissan Sentra's standard (SV, SR, SL) trims all come with 124 horsepower, as does the SR Midnight Edition trim, except for the base S trim which has 130 HP. When that level of performance is paired with this vehicle's light body (all five trims are between 2,848 and 2,943 pounds), it provides for a smooth glide through traffic. The all-new NISMO, SR Turbo and SR Turbo Midnight Edition trims have a nice upgrade to 188 HP, which not only makes lane changes and acceleration easier, they also bring race-quality experience to a classic Nissan model for the first time. While the past model year had NISMO models for the GT-R and 370Z sports cars and the Juke crossover, now you can have all the benefits of NISMO-tuned front and rear suspension (for the NISMO option) and turbocharged bliss (both SR Turbo and NISMO) for a price that will make you feel like you're giving your budget a hug.

Another cool benefit of a compact like the 2017 Nissan Sentra is all trim options save you a lot at the pump, with the SV, SR, SR Midnight Edition & SL options averaging 29 mpg city and 37 mpg highway with their Xtronic transmission. The fuel economy is a notch lower for the NISMO, SR Turbo and SR Turbo Midnight Edition options at a peak of 26 mpg city and 32 mpg highway but you gain about 50 percent more power in the bargain - 188 HP - making your Sentra the baddest compact on the road. No matter which trim option you select, the 2017 Sentra is going to be friendly to your budget. And all trims of the 2017 Sentra come with Bluetooth hands-free phone, while many have available Bluetooth streaming audio, as well.
