2014 Nissan Sentra Manchester, NH
The 2014 Nissan Sentra is a respectable choice in the small sedan class thanks to it's well appointed cabin, admirable fuel economy and competitive pricing. Fresh off a redesign last year, the Nissan Sentra receives additional updates for 2014, including some revised tuning to its CVT transmission, suspension and steering. New features include lower front-seat storage pockets and an updated NissanConnect with Apps.

2014 Nissan Sentra Design
The 2014 Nissan Sentra is larger than the subcompact Versa and smaller than the midsize Altima. Certain styling cues are shared with the handsome, all-new midsize Altima. The front grille, with its angular corners, inwardly curved sides and horizontal grille lines, convey the family resemblance. In the rear, LED tail lights echo the angular shapes found elsewhere on the Sentra. Inside, the Sentra continues its clean, sophisticated styling. The instrument cluster is large, clear, and easy to read, with an attractive white-on-black color scheme. Space in the Sentra is perhaps one of its most compelling attributes. Front legroom is a roomy 42.5 inches, which is enough to accommodate tall drivers, but still can accommodate petite people without them feeling swallowed up. Trunk space in the Sentra measures 15.1 cubic feet, and the standard 60/40 split seats fold flat for even more carrying capacity.
Power & Handling of the '14 Sentra
Every 2014 Nissan Sentra gets a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 130 hp and 128 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the base model, and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is optional. With Nissan's updates for 2014, we expect the engine to stay quieter under hard acceleration as well. The Sentra's CVT is one of the better ones out there, offering little of the strangely elastic "rubber-banding" sensation some of these transmissions suffer. Although last year's Sentra provided a fairly smooth ride and respectable handling, Nissan has made changes to the suspension and steering this year to improve the car's abilities in both areas. A Nissan Sentra SL accelerated from zero to 60 mph in 9.7 seconds, and stopped from 60 mph in 126 feet, an average distance for the segment.
The 2014 Nissan Sentra is a solid, good-looking compact sedan with excellent fuel economy and a comfortable, spacious cabin. For more information on this model, visit the official 2014 Nissan Sentra website.
