2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO Review

NISMO has served as one of the most premier performance divisions in the automotive industry and has come up with a line of unique, performance-driven designs since its founding in 1984. The latest model to roll off the line comes in the form of the 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO, a compact car designed to offer thrilling performance and pristine handling.


The Sentra NISMO pounds pavement with a 1.6-liter DIG turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 188 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque without breaking a sweat. The model is designed for enthusiasts who want to put the thrill back into driving a compact car.

As with all NISMO vehicles, the Sentra boasts a NISMO-tuned suspension and a reinforced chassis. That, combined with a lower stance, adds up to incredibly responsive handling. The 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels come standard and large front brake rotors complement the powerful engine.


Style comes standard as well, with several NISMO-exclusive cues. The fascias come emboldened by a signature red stripe while black outside mirrors add to the overall flair. The unique LED daytime running lights and front grille create an intimidating presence. A NISMO badge wraps up the whole package as one of the most performance-oriented compact cars to ever hit the street.


We here at Tom Naquin Nissan are pumped to see more performance-oriented cars coming out of the NISMO division!
