2010 Nissan Sentra At A Glance

The Nissan Sentra continues to build on its reputation as a stylish compact sedan with roominess and amenities, responsive, fun-to-drive performance and unexpected versatility.  For 2010, Sentra is offered in six trim levels – 2.0, 2.0 S, 2.0 SR (with sporty exterior and interior styling features), 2.0 SL and two performance-oriented models, SE-R and SE-R Spec V (please see separate 2010 Sentra SE-R press materials for information on these models).  Sentra 2.0 models feature a standard 140-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine and fuel-efficient Nissan Xtronic CVT™ (2.0, 2.0 S, 2.0 SR and 2.0 SL) or 6-speed manual transmission (2.0 only).

For 2010, Sentra receives a number of model, option, content and styling changes, including revised headlights and taillights for all models, a new grille and front fascia for 2.0, 2.0 S and 2.0 SL models and new interior fabrics on all trim levels.  As part of the interior refinements, leather-appointed seating on the 2.0 SL will be separated into an optional package, giving customers greater flexibility when selecting the popular SL trim.  In addition, a 4.3-inch color display audio head unit with iPod® and Bluetooth® controls is standard on the 2.0 SL, and a new optional Navigation Package is offered for the first time that can also be paired with an available RearView Monitor.

Other enhancements for 2010 include the addition of the popular Convenience Package as an option for the 2.0 SR model, while the Sentra 2.0 SL adds standard Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS).  Wheel designs have also been revised for 2010, with new 16-inch wheel covers (2.0 S) and new 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels (2.0 SL).  Three new exterior colors are also offered for 2010 – Anodized Orange, Espresso Black and Aspen White.

Sentra is again available with a range of unexpected amenities – ranging from the luxury of leather-appointed seating to the convenience of Nissan’s Intelligent Key™ keyless entry system and Nissan Navigation System with XM NavTraffic® Real-Time Traffic Information (XM® subscription required, sold separately).
