    To begin, consider the detailed 2013 Nissan Sentra Pricing, Options and Specifications + First Drive Review and 2014 Nissan Sentra SL Review.


    This excellent Labor Day Weekend special from Mossey Nissan in San Diego is good through tomorrow. Using TrueCar Pricing reports, it appears Midwest and East Coast buyers are going to pay another $500 or so more.

    2015 Nissan Sentra Trims

    The seventh-generation Nissan Sentra, introduced in fall 2012 continued with minor enhancements in the 2015 MY.

    Nice looking C-Segment sedan.​

    For 2015, the base S trim (M/T for $16,480, w/ the CVT for $17,330 and FE+ S w/ the CVT for $17,730) received a USB connection port, Bluetooth phone, steering wheel audio controls, Smart Auto Headlights and cruise control.

    The SV trim ($18,300) received a proximity key, Backup Camera, NissanConnect with Mobile Apps, 5.0” central display, SiriusXM, sliding front armrest, Bluetooth streaming, Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant, leather-wrapped wheel and shift knob, Smart Auto Headlights and Easy-Fill Tire Alert.

    The SV Style Package includes power sliding moonroof, dual illuminated visor vanity mirrors, 16-inch alloys and rear spoiler. A Cold Weather Package adds heated front seats and outside mirrors.

    The SR ($19,910) includes heated front seats and heated outside mirror, rear discs, proximity key, 6-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system, SiriusXM, leather-wrapped wheel and shift knob and more.

    The SR Premium Package adds leathers, Bose Premium Audio and power moonroof.

    A nice looing SL interior.​

    The SL ($20,670) added leather, rear discs and auto-dimming mirror with HomeLink.

    2015 Nissan Sentra

    The Sentra continues to use a 130 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque 1.8L I4 mated to a wide ratio (7.3:1) CVT but starting in 2014, Nissan added D-shift programming to help reduce the CVTs rubber band effect. They did an ok job. Not perfect but better than the 2013 without. All in, a decent 29/39 mpgUS city/highway rating.


    The FE+S trim with a lower Cd (0.27 vs. 0.29) thanks to a rear spoiler, rear tire and underbody aerodynamic deflectors and low rolling resistance tires is rated at 30/40 mpgUS city/highway.

    Sentra's passenger and cargo of 95.6 and 15.1 cu. ft. respectively, provides room at the high end of the C-segment. Behind the Corolla and Elantra but more than the Civic, Cruze, Focus and 3. The rear seat is a standard 60/40-split fold-down design.

    More room out back than most in the segment.​

    All Sentra’s include a 6-way manual driver's seat, 4-way manual front passenger's seat, front and rear door pockets, front center console with padded armrest and cupholders, rear seat armrest with cupholders, A/C, tilt and telescopic wheel, PWs with driver's one-touch auto up/down, PLs with auto-locking feature, remote keyless entry and remote trunk and fuel-filler door releases. Dual Zone Auto climate is available on higher trims.

    The Sentra features struts with a stabilizer bar up front and a torsion beam rear axle with stabilizer bar. 16” steel wheels with full covers or 16” alloys for S and SV grades, along with 17” alloys for SR and SL grades.

    2015 Nissan Sentra Safety

    Passively, Front, side and side curtain airbags along with LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) are all standard.

    Active safety features include Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA).

    A RearView Monitor and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Easy Fill Tire Alert feature are also available in higher trim levels.

    2015 Nissan Sentra NHTSA 4-Star Crash Test Rating


    It is a nice looking C-segment offering. It misses on ergonomics for taller individuals and the infotainment is a half-generation behind the segment leaders. It succeeds on the efficiency front thanks to the wide ratio CVT and value with one of the lowest prices available in the hotly contested C-segment. Read the reviews linked above for more detail.

    Regardless, $13,999 + TTL for a C-segment is Blazing HOT!
