2011 Nissan Sentra At A Glance

PDF File (111 KB): 2011 Nissan Sentra Specs

As with many other Nissan vehicles, the Nissan Sentra received a number of significant exterior, interior and content refinements for the 2010 model year. For 2011, the fine-tuning of the popular Sentra compact sedan continues with a realignment of option package equipment – helping buyers to attain just the right level of features to match their needs and budgets.

Again in 2011 Sentra is offered in six models – Sentra 2.0, 2.0 S, 2.0 SR, 2.0 SL and the performance-oriented Sentra SE-R and SE-R Spec V. Sentra 2.0 models feature a standard 140-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, 6-speed manual transmission or Nissan Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with improved fuel efficiency for 2011. Each combines a stylish compact exterior with outstanding roominess and amenities, along with responsive, fun-to-drive performance and unexpected versatility. New Sentra packages include a SL Value Package, Visual Audio Package and SL Audio Package.

Other changes for 2011 include the addition of a SE-R style rear spoiler for 2.0 CVT, 2.0 S and 2.0 SL models. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) is now standard on Sentra 2.0, and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS) have been added as standard equipment to the Sentra 2.0, 2.0 S and 2.0 SR.

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 (Secure Digital Card-based) with 5.0-inch color screen and XM NavTraffic® Real-Time Traffic Information (XM® subscription required, sold separately).
