There has been so much buzz about the 2013 Nissan Sentra, that the debut seems a bit unexciting to most, especially those who have been following the slow teases for all this time. But, the debut happened for the Chinese market, known as the “Sylphy” to them, at this year’s Beijing Motor Show. While it isn’t quite as exciting for it to debut the American version, it still sounds as if Nissan has released one of the better versions to date.
Al Castignetti, Vice President and General Manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc. said, “The 2013 Nissan Sentra is the most revolutionary design in the nameplate’s 30-year history, a worthy addition to what is without question the most innovative, highest quality, highest value sedan lineup in Nissan history. With the complete redesign for 2013, Sentra is closer in look and feel to Altima than a typical compact sedan. Like Altima, the new Sentra offers best-in-segment attributes, such as high fuel economy and easy-to-use connectivity, that offer real customer value and convenience.”
“Sentra has long been known as one of the roomiest sedans in class and the latest iteration is no exception. The fine-tuning of its dimensions has created not only extremely well-balanced exterior proportions but enhanced rear seat legroom and created a larger, more usable trunk space. From front LED accents to rear LED taillights and every inch in between, the all-new 2013 Sentra serves notice to compact sedan buyers that the Sentra is stepping up in style and stepping up in desirability,” said Castignetti. “In what has become one of the most competitive segments in the industry, Sentra is ready to take on all comers.”
It sounds as if Castignetti laid it all out for us. With all the updates and getting 40 miles per gallon, which is best in its class, this sedan should be a great seller for Nissan.
