Default 2013 Nissan Sentra Teased

Quote:
has made no secret of its plans to dramatically reshape its U.S.-market lineup, with its pronouncement that five new models are on the way in rapid succession over the next year or so. Now itís the Nissan Sentraís turn in the makeover chair, as evidenced by the first official teaser photo and video of the new 2013 Nissan Sentra in SR trim. Meanwhile, over in China at the 2012 Beijing auto show, Nissan is busy showing off its new Nissan Sylphy (at right and below), the Asian market version of the coming Sentra. Following in the tire tracks of the recently revealed, all-new 2013 Pathfinder and 2013 Nissan Altima, the next-generation 2013 Nissan Sentra will be officially revealed later this summer in advance of its rollout to dealerships this fall.
So far, Nissan isnít saying much of anything about the new 2013 Sentra, but the compact, front-drive sedan will no doubt come equipped with an application of its next-generation Xtronic CVT it has started rolling out to its new models such as the Altima. It remains to be seen if Nissan will continue to offer the available six-speed manual. The present Nissan Sentra is powered by 2.0 and 2.5-liter engines depending on trim level, with the 2.5-liter, 200 horsepower Sentra SE-R Spec V topping the lineup.
Given Nissanís aggressive push to reduce its emissions and promote its Pure Drive eco badge, the new Sentra could receive a smaller displacement, fuel efficient base engine, perhaps a take on Nissanís 1.8-liter four (an updated version is debuting in the Sylphy). Nissan could also stick with an optimized 2.0-liter, or possibly offer both. Weíd be surprised if the 2.5-liter will continue in the Sentra, but we wouldnít be to see a hybrid version at some point. Weíre also hoping Nissan will keep the performance-themed SE-R models in the lineup, or perhaps a Nismo-branded model, which potentially makes sense given Nissanís recent plans to expand Nismoís footprint.
The new 2013 Nissan Sentra also promises to be a step up on the inside, with updates to the cabin materials and the latest in Nissan telematics options and features. If it turns out like what we see so far of the Sylphy, it should be a solid-looking cabin with numerous upscale amenities. Weíll know the full story on the new Sentra soon, and we suspect it wonít be long before we see the next two new Nissan models in the product pipeline.
The Nissan Sylphy at 2012 Beijing auto show is essentially kicking off the all-new global market sedanís launch. Nissan eventually plans to roll out the Sylphy/Sentra in some 120 countries by 2014.
As previously indicated, the Sylphy on display at Beijing is powered by an updated version of Nissanís 1.8-liter four mated to a version of the automakerís next-gen Xtronic CVT. The Sylphy has LED lighting accents front and rear, a strong three bar grille, and an overall shape reminiscent of the new Altima.
The Chinese-market Sylphy will be built at Nissanís Huadu plant in Guangzhou, China. Nissan is also showing three of its EV future cars it has previously unveiled ó the Esflow sports car, Pivo 3 urban runabout, and e-NV200 van ó at Beijing.

All their cars are going to end up long the same just different size aren't they? All though the sentra might not be to disappointing from what can be seen in the teaser.

They would have to do/change a heck of lot to make the Sentra matter again in any way.

for as ugly as it is, my wifes sentra is really nice on the inside and doesn't drive too bad either. the chassis seems really well put together, but the CVT makes it a dog LOL.

The obvious engine choice for a performance model will be the Juke's 1.6 turbo with 187 horsepower. I would be surprised if it's not offered with the Sentra.

ehhhhh.. lost faith in sentras. Maybe I'm being cynical, but I haven't seen/enjoyed sentra since the old sr20 days.

Loved my old b13 and 14 se-r. I have been in/drove few new sentras. The drive doesn't make me smile like the old se-rs.

we shall see.

^Former 04 SE-R Spec V (with the gold Brembos ) owner here.....it was really a great little car that I found did everything a little better than you thought it would or should have. It was really a fun car to DD in general, but the transmission was probably the worst I have experienced in any car. I had modified it a good deal, and I have to say, I still miss it......

Yup yup. I haven't been to sr20 forum in looong time though. Very once in a while, I still check it out the classfied section.

Your name sounds very familiar. I may have met you at one point. I have to say, at least back in the days, se-r peeps were very tight knit group. You knew almost everyone who had se-rs in tri state area. Bunch of cheap bastards, who's always low balling each other for parts and cars.
But we used to have some good times.

I had 97 green turbo se-r, and black 98 se-l.

I got out of the scene after Jay Hass's shop screwed me hardcore. Wow, that brings me back some bad memories. Lost lot of money. oh well, it's all in the past. Can't change it now. I moved on since then.
