2017 Nissan Sentra and 2017 Nissan Rogue Review
Are you in the market for a compact vehicle? Nissan has a couple of options that might just be perfect for you. The 2017 Nissan Sentra is a sporty 4-door compact sedan that offers interior size closer to the midsize range.

What’s New for the 2017 Nissan Sentra
New for 2017 is the SR Turbo model. This powerful, compact sedan has a new, 188-horsepower turbocharged engine. In addition to the more powerful motor, the SR Turbo has recalibrated steering, a sports suspension, and bigger brakes. Some additional improvements to the 2017 Nissan Sentra include thicker, sound deadening glass for a quieter ride and a larger center console.
A Best in Class Interior
The 2017 Nissan Sentra has a roomy and comfortable interior. Interior space is compared to that of a midsize car with plenty of headroom and legroom for your passengers.

Features that keep it on top include a 5-inch color info screen on the instrument panel in between the main gauges, an improved audio system interface, piano-black accents, Bluetooth connectivity and better sound deadening for a quieter cabin.
Taking cues from another vehicle in the Nissan family, the 2017 Nissan Sentra’s styling resembles the Altima.
