2017 Nissan Sentra Pictures
2017 Nissan Sentra Pictures – The last time I remember the Nissan Sentra are really sporty 2002 when the Sentra SE-R Spec V with a 180 horsepower engine, six-speed manual and limit slip differential debut. After that, the Sentra is quite dull and largely forgettable point A to Point B small sedan, but for the 2017 model of Nissan hopes to recapture the magic of performance with the new Sentra SR Turbo.
As the name implies, SR Turbo gets a turbocharged engine, borrowed from Juke crossover. 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder makes 188 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. Compared with a naturally aspirated engine power generation Sentra 1.8-liter basis, blown engine produces 64 horsepower and 52 pound-feet of torque to the party. It works with both six-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission, both of which are specifically designed for Turbo SR.
Behind the wheel of SR Turbo fitted to manually revert back throttle acceleration, which proved to be very fast for a short test drive I’m in Georgia. Consistent power across the band, while the clutch and shifter are easy to operate, but a layer of long throws. The car is certainly no slouch, but it does not knock your socks off, even with the Auto Sport mode activation punchier throttle response.
With the power of respectable under the hood, Nissan up SR Turbo handling of the game, with upgraded suspension including stiffer dampers and springs front, while the benefits of the body structure of the engine cradle larger and thicker hood for the base vehicle. Engineers also changed the power steering system of electric motor and steering tuning the new software in hopes of steering feedback.
For muscle stops, front disc brakes 11.7-inch larger replaces 11-inch base model and has a more aggressive brake pads clamp on them.
Repair chassis successfully entered SR Turbo reflex slightly sharper handling. It adheres well to the gradual bend with some body roll, but if you press harder with the tight turn understeer behind making its ugly head. While Continental ContiProContact All-season 17-inch tires did a good job under the power and keep the car planted to normal driving, they do not cut the patch to run excited at Twisty pieces.
