2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo Debuts In Miami

2017-nissan-sentra-sr-turbo-1

The new 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo made its world debut at the 46th annual Miami International Auto Show, which ran from September 10 to 18 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Aside from the SR Turbo, the 2017 Nissan Rogue also made its debut.

The Nissan Sentra SR Turbo packs a 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIGTM) turbocharged engine that delivers a 50-percent horsepower increase from the normally aspirated 1.8-liter Sentra SR powerplant. In total, it has a capacity of 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque, which are 64 more horsepower and 52 more lb-ft of torque than non-turbo Nissan grades.

Because of the increase in power and torque, the SR Power needed an enhanced body structure, revised steering system, larger front disc brakes, new 6-speed manual or Xtronic transmission with manual mode, and unique suspension tuning. What comes from this combination are improved acceleration, improved handling, and enhanced ride comfort.

Michael Bunce, vice president for Product Planning at Nissan North America, said the SR Power was specifically designed for those who want all the attributes of a traditional sedan, but also wants to experience turbo performance. It builds upon the redesigned Sentra with 50 percent more power and 40 percent more torque.

All Sentra SR models will have the following features: LED low beam projector headlights with LED accents, lower body side sill extensions, rear spoiler with integrated LED brake light, fog lights, chrome exhaust finisher, heated outside mirrors with LED turn signals, and unique design 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with 205/50R17 all-season tires.

Inside, Sentra SR has sport interior trim, premium sport cloth seats, driver’s seatback pocket, heated front seats, a 5.0-inch Advanced Drive-Assist™ Display (ADAD), and standard Siri Eyes Free™ Voice Recognition.

The 2017 Sentra SR Turbo also has a standard power sliding glass moonroof and SR Turbo badging while the SR Turbo Premium Package, the only option package available with the SR Turbo, includes Blind Spot Warning (BSW)2, Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)2, leather-appointed seating, and Bose® Premium audio system with eight speakers.

What Would A Nissan Sentra Nismo Be Like?

It’s way too hard not to imagine what a Nissan car bearing the Nismo nameplate be like after the company revealed its concept at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.

There was a time that Nissan was the dream of many, thanks to its SE-R, which was sadly discontinued after the 2012 model. That one was packed to capacity—a four-cylinder engine, responsive suspension, and a competitive price tag.

You wouldn’t find the likes these days, except that Nissan will probably surprise us with a performance Sentra with all the goodies of before. But until the company actually announces something, car enthusiasts are free to imagine what the Nismo nameplate would come with.

According to a source, the Nissan Sentra Nismo would have Nissan’s “Energetic Flow” design language as seen on the Altima, Maxima and Murano. The front fascia would gain the “V-Motion” grille, as well as boomerang-shaped headlights and taillights. A strip of chrome would run from the trunk to the window surround, linking the nose and tail with shiny metal.

Across the Nismo lineup, you would find the premium Bright Pearl White color with accents done in red, black and carbon fiber, most especially in lower fascia, sideview mirrors, door handles and side sills.

There would also be a shiny black chrome mesh for the upper and lower grilles while the 19-inch aluminum alloys Ray wheels will use a dark grey matte finish and polished lip.

For the drivetrain, the Sentra is usually equipped with 1.8-liter, DOHC, inline four-cylinder engine. The total output stands at only 130 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque through a front-wheel drive continuously variable transmission (CVT). It can go 0-to-60 mph on automatic transmission or manual transmission for the base model Sentra S.

There’s a turbocharger to add more power and speed. This can lead to 265 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.

As for the price, the Nismo would most likely start at $28,000.
