CARS.COM — The Nissan Sentra gets more standard safety and convenience features for 2018 — in some cases for no extra money. On sale now, Nissan’s compact sedan adds Bluetooth audio streaming and a backup camera as standard equipment (both were optional last year) while more versions get Nissan’s well-rated forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking system. That’s an important safety feature Nissan has vowed to make standard across much of its lineup now.
Last year’s debut of the higher-performance SR Turbo and NISMO editions brought the Sentra to six trim levels — the S, SV, SR, SR Turbo, SL and NISMO. Those designations carry over for 2018, as does the $17,875 base price (including a destination charge) for the Sentra S. Higher trim levels increase $120 to $1,940 apiece, but the steepest hikes come with considerably more features.
