If you’ve been searching for a compact sedan that offers a beautiful cabin, head-turning exterior styling, and a modest price tag, you’ll want to take a good look at the 2021 Nissan Sentra. The Sentra’s handsome styling contrasts with the flashy race car looks of some of its rivals. While some economically priced vehicles supply bare-bones features, the Nissan Sentra gets a long list of standard features, including blind-spot monitoring and forward collision mitigation. These are a few reasons why the 2021 Sentra is so popular with Watsonville Nissan shoppers.
There are some changes for 2021. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is now standard across the lineup. The SR trim gets NissanConnect Services and a Wi-Fi hotspot as options. The Nissan dealer serving Watsonville expects customers to enjoy the new two-tone paint combination: Electric Blue metallic with a black roof.
The 2021 Nissan Sentra gets excellent reviews from the automotive media. Kelley Blue Book writes: The 2021 Nissan Sentra is a really good compact sedan. It has to be, because even though the world is crossover-crazy, companies are still making and selling excellent examples of the compact car craft. The Sentra, now in the second year of its eighth generation, holds its own among them. Over those generations, this car has been one of Nissan’s top sellers.”
The 2021 Sentra seats five and is offered in three trim levels: S, SV and SR. The Sentra is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 149 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque, paired with a CVT. All models are front-wheel drive.
